Better Results with Affirmations

According to Arielle Ford, co-creator of The Ultimate Soulmate Summit, the movie “The Secret” skipped the most important part . . . and that is turning affirmations into what she calls “feelizations”.

An affirmation doesn’t work without the emotional component, Ford believes.

Make it a more powerful “feelization” by feeling, in every cell of your body, that what you’ve asked for is already yours.

In her Ultimate Soulmate Summit interview, Ford, shared a simple meditation you can do to make yourself more attractive to your ultimate soulmate (or anything that you desire) . . .

1. Eliminate distractions. Remove anything that might be sitting on your lap.  Gently close your eyes.  Let your shoulders drop.  Take a long slow deep breath in through the nose and out throught the mouth.  Take another one.  Lightly let your attention drop to the area around your heart.  Now, with your imagination, feel that you’re breathing in and out through your heart so that you keep your attention lightly there.

2. As you continue to grow more quiet, peaceful and still, remember a time when you experienced appreciation for something or someone.  Take this experience of appreciation and hold it in the area on your heart.  Notice where else you have the feeling or memory of appreciation elsewhere in your body.  Breath into the feeling of appreciation.- Let it go and drift a way.

3. Call in a time when you felt gratitude for something or someone. It could be for something as simple as the sound of the ocean, a sweet smell of a flower.  Call in the feeling of gratitude.  As you’re breathing in this feeling, experience or memory of gratitude, notice it elsewhere in your body.  Let that drift away.
4. Now think of a time when you had an experience of feeling love. It could be looking into the eyes of a child, etc.  Hold this experience in the center of your heart.  And then notice where else in your body you experience it.  Take another long slow deep breath and let the experience of love wash over you in waves.  Then let it go.  Let it drift away.  Begin to feel the earth under your feet and the seat under your butt.  Gently drift back up.  Open your eyes when you’re ready.

Biggest Blocks to Attracting a Soulmate

Here’s more from the Gay and Kathlyn Hendricks interview on The Ultimate Soulmate Summit (February, 2011) . . .

A Soulmate Relationship is when . . .
* You feel a deep respect for the other’s being

* You have the experience of partnering fully
* You can be fully yourself and fully present in the relationship too (And, the more you are yourself, the more you can be there in the relationship.)

The biggest blocks to attracting the right person are . . .
* Emotional despair (This makes you give up and suddenly you overlook the positive possibilities in a situation.)  To overcome thsi, open up and love that despair.  Then, move out of it by focusing again on what you want to create.

* Indigested/unaddressed emotion: It’s some version of some fear- you feel unworthy, unlovable, damaged, etc.  After you realize your fear, re-commit to what you really want.  Also, breath, move (actually change your body position) and love (as much as you can from wherever you are).  The Hendricks sell a silicon wrist band that says, “Breath, Move, Love”.

Final Tips:

 ~ Success in attracting your soulmate is all about your individual commitment to loving yourself and being real and creating a space where people can be real with you. ~

~ Find a way to make relationship a high new form of play and invite more! ~

How to Overcome a Toxic Mindset and Feel Better

Here are some helpful words of wisdom that were shared by Noah St. John, creator of Afformations, today (02/09/11) via email:

* Question sent to Noah:

“How are you, my friend?  Just wanted to ask you a question because you might be able to answer it, in fact I’m certain you will be able to.  I’ll explain the situation and ask the question.

I was just on Facebook when I saw an internet marketer post some more of his success stories online, this particular marketer is slightly younger than me.  But for some odd reason I felt a feeling inside of, “Why can they do it but I can’t?  What do they possess I don’t?  Why do my campaigns for myself seem to fail but succeed for others?”

I’ve tried Afformations, in fact I have your iAfforms on my phone. The only thing is I must have some sort of block as I’m not seeing myself progress.

So my question is simply this:  What can I do today that will help me get out of this toxic mindset?


- Adil”

* Noah’s answer:

“All suffering is caused by attachment.

All feelings of less-than are caused by comparison.

The only way we can feel less-than is to compare ourselves to someone else.

Suffering occurs when we are attached to things that are transient – namely, all things in the physical world.

STOP comparing yourself to others.

START comparing your current self to your past self.

Are you progressing? Moving forward?

Are you a better person than you were a year ago, two years ago, three years ago?

What have you learned in the last year about yourself, your friends, humanity, life on Earth?

Are you bringing more Value to the world? Are you allowing yourself to prosper as you add Value to others?

At the end of your life, you won’t be asked if you made as much money as someone else.

You’ll be asked if you did the best you could with what you were given – if you became the person you were meant to be, and shared your blessings with the world.

That’s what I remind myself of every day.



(Thanks for the reminder, Noah!)

The What Before The How

(Figuring Out the What Before the How)

This is an excerpt from the “Love or Fear” chapter in the book “Homemade Joy- Journey to Happiness” by Paul H. Holdeman from Loveland, Colorado.  It was independently published.  (It might be the most helpful self help book I’ve ever read.)

In the beginning of this chapter, Paul, who’s great at giving very relatable, concrete examples, tells a story about a friend who was urging him to go back to college.  Paul insisted that he couldn’t because he didn’t have the money for it.  His friend kept persisting and asking Paul if he WANTED to go to college.  Then the friend explained that “You (more…)

Your Happiness Bank Account

Here’s some advice on choosing happiness . . .

 A 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud man, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o’clock, with his hair fashionably combed and shaved perfectly, even though he is legally blind, moved to a nursing home today.  His wife of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary.

After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, he smiled sweetly when told his room was ready.

As he maneuvered his walker to the elevator, I provided a visual description of his tiny room, including the eyelet (more…)
