The Proper Use of Affirmations and Subliminal Messages for Personal Power
By Adrian Cooper,
One of the major secrets to success with anything at all, be it wealth, health, success or anything else at all that you desire is to bypass the conscious mind in order to access the immense powers of the subconscious mind.
The subconscious mind is around 90% of your total mind power as opposed to the 10% of mind that you usually use in your normal daily waking state.
The subconscious mind is therefore sublime; it will accept anything you submit to it without question, and will then act upon your instructions thereby bring your vibration into complete harmony with your desires, thus enabling them to manifest into your life where you can experience them in full.
In order to attract your desires you not only have to know and ask for your desires, but most importantly you have to "vibrate" in harmony with your desires by believing that you have all you desire right now.
To vibrate in harmony with your desires includes positive thinking, i.e. only thinking in terms that your desire already exists in your experiential reality, a feeling that you are already experiencing and enjoying your desires, and a feeling of gratitude for enjoying your desires.
This is where the power of affirmations really comes into its own. The conscious, rational mind will always endeavour to reject anything that does not appear to be "real", logical or attainable. It does not know, at a conscious level that you are infinitely powerful and capable of realising any desire at all. The conscious mind will therefore reject anything it "disagrees" with and will accordingly block your wishes.
Fortunately, as the subconscious mind is all powerful, much more so than the conscious mind, all we need to do is to use the powers of positive thinking to impress our wishes and desires upon the subconscious mind, which will in turn cause you to know that your desire already exists in your life, thereby causing you to vibrate in harmony with it after which it will appear in your life as an experiential reality.
How to Enhance Your Power With Affirmations
The power of positive thinking can be enhanced and reinforced by the use of affirmations. An affirmation is a short statement repeated frequently in the present tense in order to impress the intent of the affirmation on to the subconscious Mind, thereby in turn causing the subject of your affirmation to manifest as a part of your own physical reality.
As with all positive thinking, affirmations must always be phrased in the present tense as if the desired result has already become an absolute reality. This will attract and influence Energy in accordance with The Law of Attraction, in turn creating the reality of the object of your affirmations within the inner spheres of the Universe, which reality must then in turn subsequently manifest into the physical world where the benefits can be realised.
It is also important that the affirmation, like positive thinking, is never stated in the future tense, for example, "I will have a job promotion"; this implies the indefinite future, that a negative situation already exists, and the result cannot therefore manifest positively into your present reality. Rejecting all negative thoughts and replacing them only with their opposite, most positive affirmations will result in positive vibrations of Energy that will eventually manifest into your own physical life and reality in the form you most desire.
An excellent time to repeat affirmations, with as much sincerity and emotion as possible, is just before drifting off to sleep at night, and just after waking in the morning before arising. At these times your conscious Mind is most in communication with your subconscious Mind and therefore the inner causal spheres of Energy. Repeat the affirmation throughout the day; write down the affirmation on notepaper and place copies of your affirmation around your home, repeating the affirmation frequently, and whenever you are reminded to do so. If you make use of a personal computer for long periods of time, it is a very good and effective idea to have a copy of your affirmation on your PC desktop utilising some appropriate software. You might not always notice the affirmation, but it will still be integrated into your subconscious Mind where it can begin its effect.
The ideal affirmation must be as short as possible and totally unambiguous. It is important to note that the subconscious Mind cannot easily assimilate long statements. The subconscious Mind, immense and powerful as it is, is actually very child-like in the way it perceives, and is therefore much more easily influenced by short, appropriately worded statements. Also the subconscious Mind never, ever questions any statement; it will rather accept the statement as an absolute fact, and set about bringing the object of the statement into reality by means of its powerful influence over the inner Energy levels of the Universe to which it is strongly connected.
Affirmations must always stated the present tense, and most importantly charged with as much feeling, positive Energy and emotion as possible, and as if the result has already manifested into your life as an absolute reality; a fact that you should have absolutely no doubt in your Mind. You should intensely feel the joy, happiness and all other emotions involved, which will generate the corresponding positive vibrations of Energy in accordance with The Law of Attraction.
Here are some examples of well-constructed affirmations:
Attracting great business success:
attracts more new customers every day
Attracting great wealth:
to me effortlessly
Attracting perfect health:
feel in perfect health
I can recall
anything at will
feel completely happy, joyful and contented
Enjoying complete self-confidence:
I face all
situations with total confidence
Enjoying perfect relationships:
attract people who are perfect for me
Enjoying perfect weight:
I am always
the right weight for my build
I have no
desire for tobacco
I can fully
remember my dreams when I awake
These are just as few, very powerful examples of what can be achieved with well-constructed affirmations.
How to Enhance Your Power With Subliminal Messages
An even more powerful possibility exists as an alternative to affirmations that are stated aloud or within the mind. This is the power of "Subliminal messages".
The power of subliminal messages has been proven over the course of many years to be a highly effective way of programming the subconscious mind by using either audio or visual methods. In fact, so powerful are subliminal messages in the way they impress the subconscious mind, that in 1974 the US government banned all forms of subliminal messaging on all radio and television.
Subliminal messages work by bypassing the working at a level that cannot be detected by the conscious mind. The conscious mind therefore never has an opportunity to reject them before the subconscious mind can receive and act upon them.
There are two main ways of using subliminal messages in a most powerful way; visually and audibly. Visual subliminal messages are affirmations that are flashed before the eyes so quickly that the conscious mind cannot perceive them. The affirmations therefore go directly to the subconscious mind, which perceives and acts upon them immediately. Audio subliminal messages work in a similar way by being played at a frequency that is just above the normal threshold of human hearing. Again, as with visual subliminal messages, although the conscious mind cannot perceive these affirmations the all-powerful subconscious mind can perceive them, and will therefore proceed to immediately act upon them.
It is clear therefore that both audio and visual subliminal messages are extremely powerful in accessing the enormous potential of the subconscious mind in realising all of your wishes without the rational conscious mind blocking the process. A combination of affirmations and subliminal messages is an extremely powerful combination in attracting into your life anything at all that you need, wish for and desire.
