I hope this post finds you thriving and getting outside in nature to enjoy some beautiful weather.
The 30-Day Prosperity Experiment continues…and I’m loving every minute of it! Playing this game has created definite energy shifts, and I am noticing and recording the positive evidence that continues to flow into my life as a result.
This ezine includes an article on how to use affirmations so that they actually work, and using a Living Vision to attract and create your ideal body.
Here’s to (as Abraham would say) getting tuned in, tapped in, turned on!
An Affirmation Works When It Feels Good
To Think It
by Lorraine Faehndrich
There are many who teach the importance of thinking positive thoughts. Millions of people are using positive affirmations to feel good and create the life of their dreams. For many it works easily and for others there is a missing link between their reading or saying of affirmations and actually manifesting what they are saying. Why is that?
Have you ever read an affirmation and noticed that it kind of irritated you? Instead of feeling positive when you read your positive affirmation you actually felt a little annoyed that it wasn’t working after saying it for so long, or you noticed the contrast between how you actually felt when you read it and what the affirmation said and you felt discouraged. You thought, “This doesn’t work.” Well, that feeling is actually an indication that that particular phrase or affirmation, or something about how you are thinking about it, is NOT working for you.
Instead of bringing you closer to what you want it is actually introducing resistance into your energy field and for the moment it is blocking off the good that you want to allow.
So, what is the secret to successfully using affirmations or reminders to create the life you want to create? The affirmation must make you Feel Good, or at least better, when you read it.
Why is Feeling Good (or better) so important?
When you Feel Good it is an indication that you are allowing who you are to flow through you. We are all source energy and source energy has a high vibration. You can recognize this vibration when you feel love and appreciation. When you feel love and appreciation it is an indication that you are letting who you are flow through you with no resistance. The better you feel, the less resistance you have. It is that energy resistance that is blocking off what we want in our lives.
When you read an affirmation and it brings you relief or it makes you Feel Good it means that that particular phrase or statement, or how you are thinking about it has decreased your resistance and is therefore allowing more of who you are and what you want to flow through you and into your life. Alternatively we can say that the good feeling is an indication of a higher vibration. According to the law of attraction, that higher vibration (or feeling) will attract matching vibrations (or feelings) into your experience. When you feel love and appreciation you attract love and loving people into your experience.
When you feel abundant you attract abundance. So, when you feel good, not only do you have the benefit of feeling good, you are allowing everything you want into your life – all those good feeling, high vibration emotions, people, and experiences are coming your way!
The phrases on our blisscals have been chosen to remind you of what the deepest part of you already knows…that you live in an abundant universe, that you are source energy, that you are love, and that all is well. When you think these thoughts, that are in alignment with who you are, you Feel Good!
Of course, you must choose the phrases that make YOU feel good when you think them, and this can change over time (which is why it is so great that blisscals are static cling and can be changed or moved around). Remember, an affirmation only works when it feels good to think it! When you see your blisscal hanging over your kitchen sink or in your rearview mirror, it will be a reminder to you from your higher self of who you are and how you want to feel. It will remind you that you are Thriving, that Life Works, that all you have to do is Imagine, Believe, and Receive and that All Is Well. These thoughts will bring you relief. They will put a smile on your face and in your heart. They will make you feel good. And, in feeling good you are allowing everything into your life that you want. You are Creating Bliss….with Thoughts that Feel Good.

Want To Use The Power of Your Mind to Lose Weight? by Anisa Aven
Enjoy the following visualization as a guide to create your own Living Visions:
I am so grateful to now fully experience the presence of spirit within, the calm, centered, harmonious and in-tune presence that supports me in constantly appreciating and enjoying my life and my body fully and graciously. I am
blessed with the gift of loving and appreciating my body, mind and soul. I am blessed with the feeling of optimal health, wellness, and physical fitness. Why is it that when I look in the mirror, I see a beautiful, fit, trim and healthy being? Why is it that I have the good fortune of having exceptional metabolism? I am grateful to have the kind of metabolism that others envy; the kind that will
operate fully and optimally for all the days of my life! I give thanks for my healthy eating habits. Why do I feel so inspired to eat more vegetables, fruit, whole-grains and live food each and every day? Why do I find it so easy to
enjoy more raw, whole, organic and of the Earth foods each and every day? I look at what I am inspired to eat and I am so very proud of myself. I am fit, trim, strong and committed to my health. I drink healthy, clean water and flush my system with ease and exuberance.
Why is it that I always drink more than enough water to maintain beautiful skin and a healthy, well lubricated and alkaline body? Why do I love drinking water throughout the day and find it so refreshing and easy to do? I enjoy planning my healthy meals and look forward to taking healthy food with me, where ever I go. I know that my commitment is strong and my courageous actions are inspired from a genuine path of wholeness and I am grateful.
I am also so very appreciative of how much I love to move my body! Why do I love exercising so much? Why do I crave movement, exercise and activities that burn fat and maintain my optimal cardio fitness? I look forward to moving my body and I seek ways to get active each and every day. I find it pure joy to exercise, jump, run, play, and work up a glorious sweat on a regular basis. Why is it that I find it so easy to commit to a routine; a routine that is simply a part of my every day existence? I thoroughly enjoy exercising and find myself thinking, scheduling, and making time for a daily fitness routine that keeps my body healthy and strong! And, why is it that I have more than enough time, energy, and intention to exercise regularly and still get everything else done in perfect Divine order?
Why is it that I appreciate my path and my journey so fully? I look back at my past and I am so fortunate to see a person who has always found it easy to maintain their optimal health, weight, and physical fitness. Why has this always been so easy for me? Why has eating healthy and exercising regularly always been so easy for me too? I guess I’m just fortunate to have the inner strength, commitment, courage, motivation, and simple desire to constantly choose the best for me! Why do I feel so deserving and capable? Wow, I am so thankful that it’s just me! I am deserving, strong, capable, and worthy of excellent health!
And, you know what else? I don’t know why this is – but I find it so easy to drop any extra weight faster than anyone else I know! And, it’s healthy the way my body does it. Why is it so easy for me to drop extra weight effortlessly and quickly? It’s as if I blink my eyes, eat a few extra apples, and work out a couple of times and poof – I’m trimmer, slimmer, firmer, and weighing my optimal weight so effortlessly and quickly!
I love what I see in the mirror! I deeply and completely honor myself and accept that I am worthy of all that I desire now. I give thanks for all this and more. So Be it! It is done!
“You are meant to live an expansive, exhilarating, good-feeling experience. It was your plan when you made the decision to become focused in your physical body in this time-space reality. You were born knowing that you are a powerful Being; that you are good; that you are the creator of your experience, and that the Law of Attraction (the essence of that which is like unto itself, is drawn) is the basis of the Universe, and you knew it would
serve you well. And so it has.”
“There are many aspects to success; material wealth is only one component. …But success also includes good health, energy and enthusiasm for life, fulfilling relationships, creative freedom, emotional and psychological stability, a sense of well-being, and peace of mind.”
