In the last part of my series, How to Find Your Authentic Self, I will share with you a way that has helped me to stay authentic.
I do it through what are called incantations or affirmations. Now don’t think these incantations have anything to do with magic or sorcery, as they are commonly linked. The word incantation is actually related to the word enchant, meaning to attract in a very strong way. That is exactly what you want to accomplish with the incantations. You want to attract the positive energy that comes from the words you speak, into your brain… even if you don’t feel it 100% at the time you say them.
Why is that?
Did you know that your brain cannot tell the difference between real and imagined? It is all about context.
Have you ever had a dream that when you awoke, you swore it was real? There is a reason for that. Your brain thought it was, at least until you woke up and put it in the context of what it was… a dream. If that step was skipped, you would be walking around, still believing it was true. When you convince your brain that something is true, it will look for ways to bolster that truth. That is why incantations are such a powerful tool in helping you become the person you want to be and to drive you toward the life you always imagined.
It will not happen overnight. It will take commitment on your part. You have to be willing to do these as part of a daily ritual and make them just as important as brushing your teeth. But make sure you do one thing. Be sure of what you want and be very clear on the outcome.
Now what you need to do is think about all of the exercises in this series and what you discovered about yourself. Brainstorm all of the negative incantations you have been telling yourself over and over, probably for years. All those little comments that have crept up in your mind.
Examples of Negative Incantations:
I will never amount to anything.
Why bother? I’m such a failure.
I am too fat, old, out of shape, etc.
I am worthless.
Why do I think anyone would want what I have to offer the world?
I have nothing to give.
It is too late for me to change.
I always attract the wrong people into my life.
Replacement Positive Incantations:
I am a child of the Creator of the Universe and I am capable and equipped to do anything that I set my heart, mind, and soul to.
I am incapable of failing because I am a masterpiece and I was created for greatness.
I am a strong, youthful, energized soul who is ready to take on the world.
I am worth more than gold, rubies, or diamonds and I will live my life in abundance of wealth and prosperity.
I have everything I need within me right at this moment and at any time I am able to summon what I need to excel in anything I want to achieve.
God has equipped me with everything I need. His spirit dwells in me and provides me with every ounce of strength, compassion, love and joy that I will give back into the world.
I will manifest every dream that is put in my heart. I will create a life that will far surpass anything I ever imagined.
I will radiate energy and love into the world and in return, I will attract like-minded people into my life.
I will give to others with a love and compassion that shows no boundaries or end.
Do you see a difference in those words?
I am not at all about positivity or positive thinking, but I do believe in the power of words. I do believe that words do have power and energy, and that is not some new age kind of thinking. It is truth. As a Christian, I know and believe in the power of the words that God spoke. Even in the beginning of the world, it says “He spoke” the world into existence. Words have power. Think about a message that you heard someone give, whether it was at a seminar or at church. Was there one that truly hit home for you, where you left thinking, “Wow. No truer words were spoken.”? Words can be used to build up or they can be used to destroy. We do this every day, out loud or in our heads. The question is, are you building yourself up or destroying yourself bit by bit?
Now is your opportunity to bring your authentic self to life. Through these past exercises and now, incantations, you have the opportunity to solidify who you are and where you are headed.Are you ready to fully embrace your authentic self?Click To Tweet
