Once you are completely relaxed, continue to breathe slowly and deeply and begin to create a visual image of your affirmation. Imagine or see yourself actually doing the thing you want to accomplish, and be certain to include the emotion you will experience at accomplishing your goal - the joy of an improved relationship or connection, the satisfaction of regular exercise, healthy eating and weight loss - whatever emotional aspect you created in your affirmation. Use the power of repetition and make a point to do this every day, at more or less the same time. The "magic 30 minutes" before sleep at the end of the day works well for many, while others may prefer a routine of first thing in the morning. Whatever your preference, it is important to establish it as a habit. You are creating a new neural pathway that is, in that sense no different than any other learning process you've already accomplished - this one just happens to be something healthy and positive you may have struggled with in the past.
As always, please comment and share.
