If you understand the basics of manifesting, you will know that it is your thoughts and imagination that is creating your reality. What you chose to focus on, is what you will attract more of into your life. Therefore, to get what you want in life, you must change the focus from the lack of not having it right now, to already having what you want. You need to change the old story you are telling yourself on repeat, due to your old habitual thoughts, and replace it with a new story of living from your desired end.
To get what you want faster, you must stop your mind running on the autopilot habitual thoughts, the more you keep repeating thoughts of the old story from the past and worrying about them, the more you will be stuck in the same situation, going around in circles.
Affirming statements of what you do want, will help you to overwrite and replace the old habitual thoughts that are going on inside your mind. The more you repeat these affirmations, the quicker they will be impressed on to subconscious mind and with continuous repetition, you will be able to make them your dominant thought. Use affirmations that resonate with you, use the language of your inner voice, in the way you are always speaking to yourself, the mind finds this easier to accept.
I normally get asked how often, should you repeat your affirmations and when. Repeat them all day and every day to begin with, so you’re only entertaining the new thoughts of the desire. You must consciously focus all your attention on the affirmations, because the old negative thoughts, you were previously thinking are already assumptions and beliefs in your mind, therefore, to replace them, more effort, time, and dedication is required. The more attention you give to the affirmations, the faster you will get the results. You should continue to repeat your affirmations until your desire as come to pass. The best time to repeat the affirmations, is every time your desire comes to mind, so you’re only associating these new positive thoughts with your desire and no longer dwelling in the negative story. To really speed up your manifestation, another great time to repeat your affirmations is when you are in a drowsy state (SAT’s), in this state your conscious mind will not put up a fight, so there will be less of an uphill struggle and they will go directly to your subconscious mind.
That is the aim of the affirmations, to repeat them until they become your dominant thought when you think of you desire. Instead of the negative thoughts, you’re thinking at the moment. When your mind automatically repeats the affirmations at the thought of your desire, that’s when you know it’s been impressed on the subconscious mind enough. You will get to a point where you’ll feel complete confidence, that your desire will be yours no matter what and nothing can stop you having it.
How quickly you get your desire, is completely dependent on you. On how long it takes you to let go of the old thoughts and story from the past and focus your thoughts on what you want to experience in life. Re-affirm the new story as much as you can, until it naturally becomes your dominant thought, it is your dominant thoughts and beliefs that manifest. The more you affirm the new thoughts and story, the quicker it will reprogram the mind to the new way of thinking and your desire will come to pass. Don’t worry about the how and when, that is not your job. Don’t keep questioning it and asking whether you’re doing it right or why it hasn’t happened yet; all that will do is slow the process down. You must focus your mind, have faith your desire is already yours and every time you think of your desire affirm, affirm, affirm.
