Create the Life You Want

Hi there! Happy New Year to everyone. This is my first post for 2011 and I am very excited to be back with this lovely group. I know many people are choosing their "word" for 2011, but for some reason it has been difficult for me to narrow down my list - ha.  So as I read my book Creative Visualization by Shakti Gawain a book about Using The Power of Your Imagination To Create What You Want In Your Life, it occurred to me, I needed an affirmation for 2011!

The idea behind creative visualization & affirmation is to use the  power of your mind to create positive change in your life. Such as achieving your goals, becoming a better person or living the life you've always wanted. You'll need to visualize what you want and genuinely believe that it is possible. That will give your affirmation the greatest power it needs, the power to remove negativity and allow the positive thinking to become a reality. 

An affirmation can be a general statement or be very specific. Here are a few from the book ... 

Every day, in every way, I'm getting better and better.

Everything I need is coming to me easily and effortlessly.

My life is blossoming into total perfection.

I am the master of my life.

I love to love and be loved.

Perfect wisdom is in my heart.

I love doing my work, and I am richly rewarded, creatively and financially

It's ok for me to have everything I want!

I am now attracting loving, satisfying relationships into my life.

I am healthy and beautiful!

I am now enjoying everything I do.

I am now attuned to my higher purpose of life.

I give thanks now for my life of health, happiness and self-expression

I am an open channel of creative energy.

And so, today as a way to love and respect my thoughts, to help turn them into reality I share with you my affirmation and my image... As I Create & Listen I will Be Lead.

Do you have your affirmation – what is it?  Can you visualize it?
Think about it, repeat it to yourself. 
Now Create The Life You Want!

Thanks so much for this. I have been dancing with the idea of an affirmation for the year but hadn't gone too much into it. This helps send me in the right direction.

Oh my...I just love your post. I have the same affirmation and have been writing it in my journal everyday since Christmas. The other ones you've included here are just as powerful. Peace.
