Affirmations are a very popular tool in personal development and positive thinking, but sometimes when we say them, we can feel that our bodies disagree with us.
So how do you change that energy in your body to make your affirmations more effective, more quickly?
What is resonance?
In healing work, the process where your body and energy are in agreement, or aligned, with what you’re saying and doing is known as resonance.
When your system is in alignment and you resonate with the statements you are putting out there, you believe what you are saying completely, and you believe it’s possible for you, and so you manifest it into reality more quickly.
In fact, the very point of repeating the affirmation statements day after day is to retrain your mind and system so that you start resonating with those statements and therefore attract that reality into your life.
When you experience your body resisting the affirmations as you say them, you experience not only lack of resonance, but you also get clues to where the blocks lie with your current set of goals.
Luckily there are a few free, simple processes you can use to help your body resonate with the statements more quickly, and remove the blocks that stand in your way.
EFT, Tapping, or the Emotional Freedom Technique can be reduced to simply tapping on the karate chop point on one of your hands.
Take your fingers and place them along the side of your other pinky. Now slide down until you feel the bottom of the bone just below your pinky finger – that’s the karate chop point.
Simply take two fingers and lightly tap on that point repeatedly while you are saying your affirmations.
Use the point to clear blocks
If you feel that you are resisting a statement, then say something like this while tapping:
Even though my body resists believing that I deserve to have R100,000 cash in the bank, I still deeply and completely accept myself.
