In the past, I’ve tried using affirmations with limited success. It sounded false or unauthentic when said aloud. And the obvious reason is because it was a version of my future self that I had no connection with. This week’s lesson in the Master Keys encourages us to use the affirmation “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy”. On the surface, this could be just another of those less than helpful affirmations. Except … Haanel also states that this statement is true – for the part of us that is connected with the Universal. I find it easier to believe, to say this with authenticity, when I know that it is connected with my better self. Even if that version hasn’t completed manifested yet.
During my sits over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been visualizing a day in the life of my future self – right down to the details of where I’m living, what I’m doing to stay healthy, and what I’m doing in my business. And because of this practice, I’ve been making small changes to move toward that life. Things like: purchasing the domain name of a new business that I want to start; committing to a daily workout; and getting some new clothing that my future self is wearing. Small changes … but one step closer to manifesting my future.
Have a great week (and a happy thanksgiving to friends in the USA)
