How to Use Affirmations and Make Them More Powerful
People tend to use affirmations a lot. The problem with affirmations, because we’re an emotionally-diminished culture, they’re just saying what it is that you’re affirming. Maybe it’s real. Maybe it’s not.
If you remember back to the Stewart Smalley SNL skit . . . “I’m good enough. I’m strong enough, and dog gone it, people like me.” It’s making fun of affirmations, because you’re just saying it without any emotional intensity, and so they don’t work for a lot of people. (if you’ve never seen that, you have to see watch it here, it’s hilarious!)
An incantation is when you actually put the emotion with it, so it would have far more power. There’s a big difference with incantations when you say it with emotion. It’s not about yelling. It’s about intensity. It’s about feeling.
Can you feel the difference when you attach an emotion to your affirmation?
Let me give you an example. When I’m in a challenging moment and I just want everything to work out for me, I’m going to affirm that everything is going to go smooth and easy. “Everything is gonna go smooth and easy. Smooth and easy.”
Now, when you do it as an incantation it, it’s softer, but just as intense, with as much intention, and it’s really crazy when you put a body motion with it. I do this all the time, here’s what I want you to do: Take your hand and make a figure-eight motion, and say “smooth and easy.” Kind of do your Stevie Wonder head rock. “Smooth and easy.”
You can even just whisper it. Go slower. Smooth, easy. You can go bigger. Smooth, easy. Can you feel what shifts in your body when you put emotions and incantations to it? Develop your own incantations.
So I want you to take a look at this picture. I’ve had this picture with me, back all the way when I began doing incantations and this kind of work. What do you see in this photograph?
A great big shark is in the background. Fish, all in unison. They’re all going the same way, the same direction, pretty much all symmetric to one another.
Are they a team? do you think the shark and the school of fish are?
The shark’s not part of it. The shark is the predator. They’re the prey. Predator and prey is an interesting sentence. What this spoke to me, because I do think I’m a predator, but what do I prey on? Do I prey on fish?
I prey on old “mental software.” I prey on predators that hurt the sheeple of the world. So what I did with this incantation is, “I am the predator. I am the protector. I am the predator. I am the protector. I am the predator. I am the protector. I am the predator. I am the protector.”
Some people furrow their brows and go, “That’s pretty weird.” Some people go, “Oh, my god. That resonates with me.” At the end of the day, find your own pictures. Find the things that mean something . . . Create the incantation.
- We all have incantations; it’s unfortunate for most they are less resourceful than expected.
- Conscious incantations create a life and reality of their own.
- They often have their own rhythm, pattern, symmetry, and more.
- Affirmations in and of themselves are not bad, they just do not have the power of incantations.
- Many are uncomfortable with the emotional intensity and physiology attached to Level 10 incantations.
