Affirmations Revisited

I first read Creative Visualization: Use the Power of Your Imagination to Create What You Want in Your Life (Gawain, Shakti) when I was 15 years-old.  I used to make tape loops of her affirmations and listen to them all night long. I know it sounds cheesy, but I had a lot of “negative” messages to work through – and the affirmations really helped me push through quite a bit of darkness. They continue to work, too, especially when I remember to use them.

So, I revisit Shakti’s work every now and then.

My favorite affirmations are below. (Some are Shakti’s and some are my own)

The practice of doing affirmation allows us to begin replacing some of our stale, worn out, or negative mind chatters with more positive idea and concepts. —SG

10 Minutes a day of doing effective affirmations can counterbalance years of old mental habits. The more frequently you remember to be conscious of what you’re “telling yourself” and choose positive, expansive words and concepts, the more positive reality you will create. —SG

Try as much as possible to create a feeling of belief—suspend doubts and hesitations, put full mental and emotional energy into them.

  • Divine love is working through me here and now to create this.

The purpose of Creative Visualization is:

To connect us with our beingness

To help us focus and facilitate our doingness

To increase and expand our havingness

3 ELEMENTS= INTENTION the clearer and stronger our intention, the more quickly and easily creative visualization will work.

  1. Desire—A clear, strong purpose. “Do I truly, in my heart, desire this goal to be realized?
  2. Belief—“Do I believe that this goal can exist? Do I believe it is possible for me to realize or attain it?”
  3. Acceptance—“Am I really willing to have this completely?”


Visualize yourself with your heart flooding light like a blazing sun.

“Divine light and divine love are flowing through me and radiating from me to everything around me.”
