Imagine how it feels like to be able to see your dreams being manifested right in front of your eyes in the New Year. Is it possible? Absolutely! Miracles happen all the time.
Here is my story. Many years ago, I was attending an important medical training, it came to my attention that there was a nodule on my neck right where my thyroid gland is located. I touched the nodule, it was firm. My intuition told me that it was not a good sign and I needed a surgery as soon as possible.
However, it was a tough situation at that moment; I was in the middle of an intensive training to obtain my license in the medical field. If I quit it in the middle, I had to wait for another year because there was a wait list to enroll in this training program. I told myself that I was going to fight for this, so I put my thought into actions. Every morning I looked at the nodule on my neck in front of the mirror and reinforced an affirmation with a strong will and determination. I stated with confidence and faith,
“My body is a miraculous healing machine. I trust my body will work with me to overcome challenges in my life, now it is a perfect time.”
I believe that the Universe will direct the life force inside me to work for my best interest. Then I let it go and focused on my training. After the training, I was facing another challenge – the changing of my job. I had to move to another city, so my surgery was delayed again. Until a year later, I was booked for my surgery. I will never forget that moment. It was early in the morning on a raining day in late fall, I was lying on an operating table, my mind was very tranquil that I had never experienced before, the images around me seemed frozen. The only thing I could feel was my breathing and heart beats. The whole room was very quiet and I could hear the rain drops outside. I closed my eyes with no fear and anxiety. In my mind eyes, suddenly I saw the image of my grandfather, who already passed away more than 10 years ago. Tears came out of my eyes and I knew he is watching me and everything will be fine.
The result was scary, the nodule was not benign, but the tumor was still wrapped. Luckily I was safe and protected during the whole process. Later I reflected on this, it is a miracle how my thoughts and a strong will helped me overcome this life threatening a challenge. It also taught me a good lesson that life is too precious to wait.
If I have another chance, I will never risk my health to achieve my goal again. Our greatest gift is health, things that have the most value are usually free but most of us are not aware of this until we lose it. Today, many of us worship the things that we pay money for, such as house and cars, but overlook the things like health that are priceless to us.
Now you may wonder how affirmation works. First, let’s talk about how the mind works. There are three levels of mind based on the founder of Psychoanalytic Theory – Sigmund Freud: the Conscious Mind, the Subconscious Mind, and the Unconscious mind.
As you can see the subconscious mind has more power than the conscious mind. Beliefs are solid ideas are stored in your subconscious mind. In order to create long-lasting changes in your life, you have to impress your subconscious mind deeply enough to change the old paradigm or old beliefs and replace them with the positive ones that will support your success.
This is how affirmations or auto-suggestions work – to constantly influence your subconscious mind to achieve long-lasting changes in your life and create your new reality. The beauty lies in the fact that your subconscious mind is not able to tell the difference between what is real and what is imagined. Once impressed upon, it will work very hard to bring it into your physical reality.|
Once you understand how the mind works, you will become more aware of your thoughts. With practice and persistence, you will become the master of your thoughts and attract only what you want in your life. Everything is created twice in the world. First, it is an idea from the mind, then it is carried out to the physical world through inspired actions to follow through that idea.
Thoughts, like seeds, have a natural tendency to grow and manifest in your life, depends on which thought you feed the most with your intention. When you choose your thoughts consciously and wisely, you direct the life energy within to move to the direction that you desire and help you create your dreamed life.
How to control your thoughts and stay positive? Affirmations are very powerful, effective, and efficient to reprogram your negative thinking patterns into positive ones. The affirmations of the conscious mind should be impressive enough to influence and penetrate the subconscious mind, which in turn automatically influences the conscious mind. It is believed that stronger affirmations reach not only the subconscious mind but also the superconscious mind, which is the Universal mind where the miraculous powers reside.
Most people use affirmations on a regular basis but haven’t really obtained the real power and significant benefits out of it yet.
Here are 5 secrets to manifest your dreams quickly with affirmations.
1. Repetition: Plan your seeds by repetition on a daily basis. You have to engage your feelings and emotions in order to make a long lasting impact on your subconscious mind, which is the bridge to the Infinite Intelligence, a creative force that creates miracles. It is believed that thoughts are the vibrations sent to the Universe by the ego or the soul. Speech without a soul force is like husks without corn – powerless.
2. Persistence: Persistence is the key. After 21 days or 3 weeks of practice, you will notice the difference in your thought patterns. And after 3 months, you will discover an amazing new world inside you. You will start to behave differently and you may wonder why.
3. Emotions: Your feelings amplify the results. Repeat the affirmations with clear understanding, so you can truly engage your feelings. The more frequently you can truly feel that new expansive sensation, the more powerful that affirmation becomes when you repeat it. Feel it, be it and you are it!
4. Positive thinking: It is not easy to think positively all the time. Affirmation creates a state of heightened self-awareness. You will be more aware of the thoughts you are choosing throughout the day. This higher level of consciousness is going to help you master your thoughts and allow you to create new experiences in your life.
5. Timing: The best time periods to repeat the affirmations are early in the morning right after you wake up and at night before you sleep, because your subconscious mind is widely open during these time periods, and it is highly suggestible to the affirmations that you choose.
You absolutely have the power to create what you want in your life by reprogramming your subconscious mind with new beliefs that support your conscious desires. Repeat affirmations firmly with intensity and faith, and feel the strong urge from within, watch your soul perform miracles. Soon you will feel that you are in control of your life and your body becomes one of your best allies to help you create your new reality. With persistence and determination, your future is created and your dreams are manifest. Anything is possible for those who believe!
