Making Yourself Believe In You – Positive Affirmations Meditation. How does it work?
Do you ever think about this? That your own self-belief is already pre-determined? You can either ingrain inside your subconscious that you will either succeed or fail before you have even set out to do so.
Hi Everyone, I was looking around the site and just realised I never did a post about Positive Affirmations Meditation. I have written about this before I know but today I just wanted to delve into this a little bit deeper. How positive words can inflict positive change and how doing this can be incorporated into your daily meditation rituals.
I would say this is more a less the same as guided meditation. Of course, when you listen to guided meditation you listen to the speaker make positive affirmations. This is essentially what guided meditation is all about. Listening to somebody chant positive words and phrases over the backdrop of binaural beats.
However, I would say that this is just one type of Positive Affirmations Meditation and you can do this differently if you wish. Instead, you can do this with the use of mantras in a quiet place with no music. Here is how…
Positive Affirmations Meditation
Making Yourself Believe In You!
So what I mean is you can just meditate with your eyes closed, breathing in and out and bringing your focus in from there but you can as well make your own positive affirmations during this ritual. Where the actual voice is coming from within yourself as opposed to hearing a recording.
Whether it is better than guided meditation only you can decide this. Many I know will like to carry out their meditation rituals away from any kind of electrical interference.
I would imagine for Tibetan Monks, inside their Monastries they have no electricity at all. Only the etheric force that cloaks them from their natural surroundings. It is kind of a spiritual kind of thing where modern technology has no place. You can use technology for sure. If you are a beginner to meditation it can be helpful but the big thing to note is all this new. Meditation has been practised for thousands and thousands of years.
And probably even longer before this technology ever existed…
Although, Guided Meditation in its more classic form is nothing new either. When you hear Tibetan monks for example making sounds with their assorted instruments this is usually done alongside several different mantras alongside speakers. Which, in essence, is a more organic form of guided meditation.
I’m getting a little bit off-topic here but my main point is you can do this without the interference of digital technology.
What Are Positive Affirmations?
Maybe you know this already but a Positive Affirmation is when you say a positive thing about yourself. Something that you might not feel is 100% true that you want to make a reality. This could be that you are happy, strong, healthy, beautiful, sensible, looked after, loved by those around you, fortunate and anything that you feel is missing from your viewpoint.
This video below I think explains this very well;
So, hopefully, this can help you to come up with some positive affirmations of your own.
I will chart everything down below. Just pick and choose your favourite words or come up with your own.
To put this into practice begin each Mantra with “I am” and repeat your chosen phrase in your mind whilst meditating.
Practising Positive Affirmations Meditation?
Now, I would actually say to maybe start off by practising something like Zen Meditation. Where you just close your eyes, start taking deep breaths and try to clear your head of everything. This of course takes quite a bit of practice but I would say it is a great place to start.
I am not saying you need to be a Zen Master but if you can just figure out the basics you can then use these to start using positive affirmation mantras in your Zen state.
It, I would say is the same as my favourite type of meditation which is called Journey meditation. In which you first establish a state of Zen and then start going through different memories to kind of remote view past happenings. You don’t have to do it this way you can just try to remember a route you know well but I like to be a bit more exotic here and think of other countries where I’ve visited.
Anyway, you can kind of follow this idea the same way.
First, reach a state of Zen.
Take a few minutes and…
then begin your mantras. “I am etc.”
You can also try a Guided Meditation if you prefer with a recording of the speaker making their own positive affirmations. There is no right or wrong way but I personally prefer to make these affirmations to myself. This way you can choose your own words and try to install your beliefs more specifically.
My Own Experience…
Towards the end of July 2021. I remember reading and commenting on a blog about a meditation product. What I asked was “if the investment for this product was worth it”. The response I got was very interesting. Very long but it really got me thinking… I will share a screenshot below…
Honestly, it was a very long-winded response and this man ‘Andrew’ (from healthyhappyandwise.com). He wrote back with another reply that was just as long as well which I have not shared. I was quite impressed though really he’d basically wrote up a 2nd article in the comments. It answered my question but it really got me thinking about other stuff as well.
Like what I wanted to do was to have my best month doing blogging and affiliate marketing.
After my chat with Andrew, I decided every morning and night before bed that I would tell myself this…
“Between now and until; the end of August I am going to have the best month blogging”.
I managed 7 weeks. During this time I gave up alcohol, woke up every morning at 6 AM and published 1-2 articles a day. Results-wise it was a good month. I think the affirmations made the difference. Of course, because I worked a lot harder than usual there was also this but I liked to believe wanting to produce more was stemmed from this notion.
I like to think if you tell yourself something enough times you will eventually begin to believe it.
What might seem like is Psycho-babble is only as crazy as you believe it to be. If positive thinking can make you all the more productive then of course it can help make your desires come to be realized.
In Conclusion – Positive Affirmations Meditation
Now, putting all this into perspective I can imagine there could be many reasons why somebody like yourself might want to bring about positive changes. Whilst one person might think that having more money might be the answer to their woes another will have money but might feel like there is something else they are missing.
They could be unhappy with their current situation. Things that are happening all around them. How they perceive the world to be. The list goes on and on but each of these things that you want to change you can make affirmations about.
I think what Andrew said in the screenshot I shared above is very true and powerful that we alone are responsible for the current situation that we place ourselves within. It is true for me and I’m pretty certain for others also.
The notion can seem a little bit dumb really like “this month I’m going to make $10K and meet a new girlfriend”. Probably not a good mix lol but just because you tell yourself something every day doesn’t mean it’s going to happen right?
I think it might not but ‘by’ practising Positive Affirmations Meditation ‘it’ is far more likely because it feeds your desire.
Say for example you struggle to get out of bed in the morning but you tell yourself you will not achieve your ultimate goal unless you get up. I do this myself and it definitely works.
The question is “You might want something but do you want it badly enough?” I will leave you with that final thought.
