Transform your life with Positive Affirmations and Therapeutic Relaxation Music

Cognitive Psychology has taught us that our thinking is a very important component in our life. More specifically, our thoughts, ideas, beliefs and thinking patterns create our feelings which in turn determine much of our behavior or actions. How we think is how we will act or behave. hange a person’s thinking and you can change his or her behavior and life. One way to change a person’s thoughts is through the use of affirmations. An affirmation is an idea or thought that affirms or states that something is so, that something is true.

Affirmations are not always positive. In fact, affirmations can be either positive or negative depending upon what a person creates for himself. Every thought that we have in our mind is an affirmation. Unfortunately, many people have negative thoughts and ideas running their lives which creates negative affirmations about themselves, others and life in general. Ultimately, all affirmations that we have are about us. As we have and say negative thoughts, idea or beliefs, negative affirmations, it does affect our behavior, our actions, and what we create and experience in life.

You can change the direction of your life by using positive affirmations. The first step is to become present to the existence and power of affirmations and then to start to direct them in a positive direction for your life, in a direction that supports and enhances your life. The “Power of Affirmation” series that we have created can help you to feel better and as a result to start to experience life differently and more positively in different areas of your life. We have created affirmation programs for hypertension, relaxation, self esteem, prosperity and abundance, surgery, forgiveness and recovery.

We recommend that you listen to your chosen affirmation program once a day for at least 30 days. Each affirmation program utilizes therapeutic relaxation music with binaural audio tones combined with 10 positive affirmations. The secret to using positive affirmations to change your life rests with repetition. Also the more emotional support you put into the use and practice of affirmations the more powerful they will be for you and as a result assist you in achieving the results you want. Above all, be patient with yourself and the use of positive affirmations. Changing ones life takes time and commitment!

Chapter Nine – Success leaves Clues

According to Canfield almost everything you want to do or achieve has already been done by someone else at sometime.

Take advantage of this former research and success.

A major resource here is other people. Simply find someone who has achieved what you want to have and ask them how they achieved it.

Give up the idea that others will not help you or give you information that could assist you.

We sometimes do not seek out resources such as from other people for a variety of reasons, it being inconvenient, hard work, fear of rejection, being uncomfortable, etc.

Seek out the clues to your potential success with respect to your goals by seeking out a teacher, finding someone who has already done it and by asking someone that you can shadow or watch them for a day to learn.

Chapter Eight – Chunk It Down

Take your larger goal and break it down into smaller tasks to be done. After you decided what you want and make it specific and measurable, next take on accomplishing the individuals steps necessary to achieve the large goal of what you want.

There are various ways to do this. First is to ask others who have already accomplished that which you want and ask them the steps that they had to take.

Another way is to purchase a book or manual that outlines the steps that you need to take to be successful at what you want.

The third way is to start from the end of where you have accomplished your goal and look backward at the steps that you need to take.

It is ok not to know how to achieve what you want. Just do not give up your quest. Continue to research until you discover how to get what you want.

Canfield suggests using his “Mind Mapping” process.

Always remember to make a daily action plan to achieve the items you need to continue to move forward towards your goal.

Canfield suggests that you do not put off your largest or toughest goal until last. Accomplishing it early will set the tone for being motivation.

Always remember to plan your day the evening before. This allows you to start the day working and also for your mind to start to work while you sleep the evening before to actually begin work towards achieving your goals.

Notes on the Big Book – There is a Solution

Chapter Two – There is a Solution

The fellowship of AA exists. The bond to this fellowship, that which binds us, rests, in part, on our feeling of having shared a common peril.

However, that fact alone would not have keep us together.

The fact is that a common solution has been found.

One who has had the same problem of drinking can communicate with someone who is still actively engaged in the illness. Achieving a sense of relatedness is necessary to be of assistance. “Until such an understanding is reached, little or nothing can be accomplishd.”

Seeing past the sense of despair and hopelessness and to a real answer, is necessary for the active alcoholic. This can be created by the one who offers his or her help.

To stop drinking is merely the beginning of the work.

It is more important to demonstrate the principles of our work in our homes, work and daily affairs.

The work rests partially on being of services to others, depending “upon our constant thought of others and how we may help meet their needs.”

Even in the face of knowing that drinking could kill someone that person may drink anyway.

“Moderate drinkers have little trouble in giving up liquor entirely if they have good reason for it.”

A “real alcoholic” loses control of his liquor consumption once he starts to drink again.

This individual will create and build things and have a bright outlook only to destroy and pull the structure down upon himself.

“Perhaps there never will be a full answer to these questions. Opinions vary considerably as to why the alcoholic reacts differently from normal people. We are not sure why, once a certain point os reached, little can be done for him. We cannot answer the riddle.”

The main problem of the alcoholic is in his mind, not his body. Asking one for a reason for his drinking will only produce a variety of reasons.

In truth, alcoholics do not really know why they drink. “Some drinkers have excuses with which they are satisfied part of the time. But in their hearts they really do not know why they do it.”

Most alcoholics have lost their power of choice in drinking.

We forget the negative consequences of past drinking. We drink again.

Not getting that ones drinking always has negative consequences puts the individual at risk, at risk for dying or going permanently insane.

There is a solution, of self searching.

The solution is to eventuate in having a spiritual experience, in our establishing a close relationship with God.

We can either continue to drink or “accept spiritual help.”

“They appear to be in the nature of huge emotional displacements and rearrangements. Ideas, emotions, and attitudes which were once the guiding forces of the lives of these men are suddenly cast to one side, and a completely new set of conceptions and motives begin to dominate them. In fact, I have been trying to produce some such emotional rearrangement within you.”

“We have no desire to convince anyone that there is only one way by which faith can be acquired. If what we have learned and felt and seen means anything at all, it means that all of us, whatever our race, creed, or color are the children of a living Creator with whom we may form a relationship upon simple and understandable terms as soon as we are willing and honest enough to try.”

Forming or establishing a relationship with God is the solution.

Notes on the Big Book – Bill’s Story

Chapter One – Bill’s Story

There appears to be a sense of feeling lonely for me and then the turn to alcohol for relief.

There is also the drive for success, to prove to someone and the world that I am important.

Alcohol eventually took an important and exhilarating part of my life. And as it did so my friends left, leaving me alone.

When I would drink a sense of empowerment and determination would appear and be experienced by me.

My work and employment were eventually affected by my actions and drinking.

Alcohol eventually became a necessity for me.

However, there was still a sense of control, of being able to control the alcohol.

Eventually my self will weakened with respect to alcohol.

Self knowledge is not the way to freedom.

Loneliness, despair and fear appear and are experienced by me as I drink.

“I was soon to be catapulted into what I like to call the fourth dimension of existence. I was to know happiness, peace and usefulness in a way of life that is incredibly more wonderful as time passes.”

Someone reached out to me.

Loss of hope was and had become apparent to me.

My Salvation rested on believing in a power greater than myself.

I simply had to believe in a Spirit of the Universe, who knew neither time nor limitation.

God does for us what we can not do for ourselves.

I soon realized that there must be an admission of complete defeat with respect to alcohol.

“Had this power originated in him? Obviously it had not. There had been no more power in him than there was in me at that minute; and this was none at all.”

The concept or notion of God triggers our past, bringing up our experiences of what we refer to as religion, “vestiges of my old prejudice.”

We can choose our own conception of God.

It started from a mere willingness to believe in a power greater than myself.

With a belief in or a willingness to believe in God a “new world came into view.”

Our experience of a power greater than myself gets “blotted out by worldly clamors, mostly those within myself.”

“There I humbly offered myself to God, as I then understood Him, to do with me as He would. I placed myself unreservedly under His care and direction. I admitted for the first time that of myself I was nothing; that without Him I was lost.”

When I had a problem or was in doubt I was to sit quietly and ask for God’s direction and strength to meet my problems.

I was never to pray for myself, “except as my requests bore on my usefulness to others.”

The work was to obtain a new relationship with my Creator, God. “Belief in the power of God, plus enough willingness, honest and humility to establish and maintain the new order of things, were the essential requirements.”

I had to give up my self-centeredness. I must turn it all over to God.

When I do so there will be a sense of victory, and a feeling of peace and serenity.

I must also be of help to others. They in turn may assist still others.

I must demonstrate this work and its principles in all my affairs.

Faith is critical, but “faith without works was dead.”

“Most of us feel we need look no further for Utopia. We have it with us right here and now.”

Chapter Seven – Unleash the Power of Goal-Setting

A key component to effective goal setting is to convert your goals to specific, measurable goals and objectives. The more specific and measurable the goal and objective the better. As Canfield says, vague goals achieve vague results.

Given that we are goal seeking beings, such a process will also utilize the power of your subconscious mind, helping you to move towards and achieve your chosen goals even while you are sleeping.

Always write your goals and objectives down, putting them into written form. Making your goals and objectives concrete through writing them down also helps you to even more effectively engage your subconscious mind in this process.

While goals need to be obtainable, be sure to create goals that stretch you, as Canfield states. Create a breakthrough goal, a goal such that to achieve it would change everything in your life.

Be sure to review your goals daily. Be sure to read your goals three times a day. Read each goal out loud and with passion, closing your eyes to visualize your achieving the goal.

Such a process of stating and visualizing yous goals creates, as Canfield states, what is referred to as structural tension, between how things are and how you want them to be in your life. The more the structural tension the more the mind will work to close the gap. Read your goals each day. Make them visual to see each day, as with writing them down using 3 x 5 index cards.

Canfield also suggests carrying your more important goal in your wallet.

However, there are things that will attempt to stop you, once you have created and started to work on achieving your goal. Considerations are reasons the mind creates for why you should not achieve the goal you want. Fears are the second thing that will attempt to stop you, for example, fear of failing, of making a fool of yourself, etc. Roadblocks are external circumstances or situations that appear once you start work on achieving your goal. Considerations, fears and roadblocks will appear in the process of your working towards achieving your goal and the work anyone is to face them and move through them to achieve what you want, your goal.
