2. Affirmations and Lifestyle Mind Movie: Affirmations are specific commands that you are consciously impressing upon your subconscious mind. Repeat them 3-5 times in the first person in present tense. I have 12 of these that I carry around with me in my journal and they relate to all areas of my life including self concept, wealth, relationships, health, happiness, skills, abilities, etc.
a. Here are some examples of affirmations:
i. “I am so happy and grateful now that money comes to me in increasing quantities, through multiple sources, on a continuous basis.”
ii. “I am so happy and grateful now that I am happy, I am healthy, I am wealthy, and I have wonderful friends all over the world”
iii. You get the idea. Create your lifestyle, then affirm it to your subconscious mind.
b. A mind movie is a collection of images that resonate with you and your desired future lifestyle, plus an audio track that really gets your emotions flowing in a super positive way. The aim of a mind movie is to supplant the current images in your conscious mind with images of the lifestyle you want. This way, with repetition, your subconscious mind ‘gets it’ and realizes this is the direction you wish to move in.
i. Head over to Google images, and start looking for images you want to experience in your own life. They could be of the trips you want, the house you want, the car you want, anything.
ii. This is what I did: in the search box type in “luxury ~”. Replace the “~” with each of the alphabets, and Google will automatically suggest options!!!
iii. For example: “luxury a”, “luxury b”, “luxury c”, and so on. Get lots of pictures.
iv. Find an awesome track that gets your juices flowing. After a lot of searching I found a song that resonates with me: My Way by Frank Sinatra. The words, they strike a chord with me. Find the song that does it for you.
v. Open up Windows Movie Maker (comes default with every WindowsXP and Vista installation, not included in Windows7 but you can download it for free)
vi. Start a new project, import your pictures and the audio track, and put it all together. Try to keep it in the 5-7 minute range. Pictures spaced 5-8 seconds apart.
vii. You can also copy a smaller version of the movie to your phone (I have a blackberry with a memory card) so you can enjoy the movie on the go.
