Thoughts and words can be a man's best friends or worst foes, depending on how they are put to use. The human mind has an amazing ability to maneuver his thoughts and actions in the direction he wants to. This forms the essence of positive affirmations, which are used for self-healing, motivation and achieving one's goals. Repeating positive affirmations specific to your situation can actually increase your ability to perform the task.
As we inculcate these affirmations into our serene moments of meditation, their power increases multifold. Below we shall talk about the three key main methods you can use to weave in your affirmations into your daily meditation schedule.
Build Your Affirmations
The first key method is to building positive affirmations. When building these affirmations, it is important to use short, crisp sentences such as “I can do this”, “I have the ability to complete this task”.
This is not a time to use words that build doubt or negativity, such as 'but', 'if', 'can not', and 'do not'. Once you have crafted your affirmation, it is important to speak out your affirmation the moment you write it. If it does not sound right, then discard and start over again.
Know Thy Technique
The second key method is to know the technique. After writing the affirmations, close your eyes and repeat each statement to yourself. You can first do this loudly and then silently, only in your heart. When in meditation, slowly match each statement with your breathing pattern. For instance, you can set a pattern in which you repeat the same affirmation as you exhale in a particular mediation session and so on.
Visualize and Focus
The last key method is to visualize and focus on the desired outcome. Before you sit down for your meditation session, spend a few moments to visualize their impact on your mindset. Believe that you are getting into a defect meditative state with each breath and statement.
Integrated focus and crisp affirmations used timed with each breath is the perfect route to ultimate peace and serenity in your mediation session.
