An enormous amount has been, and is still being, written about the Law of Vibration and Attraction. We ourselves chatted about affirmations and visualizations recently, didn’t we? Of course, it’s all very well for me to blab on about all this, but without explaining to you the best ways to use these tools, I’m not doing you much of a favour.
I’ve read pages and pages, E-book after E-book on the subject of the Law of Attraction, Vibration and Growth. I’ve read them until my eyes glaze over and I feel myself nodding off! Oh, there’s wisdom in all of them, or most of them anyway. But, oh dear, so much convolution. So let me try to lay out a method of affirmation and visualization in a straightforward, cogent way. I’ll do it by way of an example.
Let’s say that you’ve always enjoyed reading mystery novels. You decide that you want to write a mystery novel yourself. Writing’s always been a subject of interest to you, but unfortunately you’re the first to admit that the old spelling and grammar aren’t really up to snuff.
You’re not a fool. You know perfectly well that if you send in a manuscript rife with spelling and syntax errors, you’re beaten before you start, so to speak. You’re already over the first hurdle, because you’ve recognized your shortcoming; your English needs work.
So you can either take a course at the local Community College, on the Internet or a correspondence course. Every night when you go to bed, you affirm that you’re a master of the English language. ‘I can write and speak English flawlessly.’ With your eyes closed, you keep those words in your mind and visualize yourself writing your novel.
Don’t worry about the contents, just see yourself at your word processor writing away with perfect confidence. Do the same just as you’re waking up. Try to keep the affirmation in your mind during the day, and whichever method of study you’ve decided upon, keep at it. You’re taking action and you’re affirming your ability. Also, keep reading mystery novels, but now you read them with a critical eye.
Notice how a professional author describes scenes, how they build up tension, the way they handle dialogue. Every night and morning you’re affirming your ability to write good English and finally, you decide to write five thousand words of a novel, or perhaps a short story.
You’ve been visualizing yourself writing for some time now. You write your story, find someone to edit it for you and in this way, you learn a great deal. Then it’s time to sit down and actually write your novel.
You’ve already decided what it’s going to be about and you add the affirmation that you’ll write a thousand words a day. You keep affirming your mastery of English, you keep affirming that this will be a brilliant first novel and then you see it being published.
You see yourself going to book signings and book parties in New York. Make a mental film of it, always with you as the star. But don’t set a time limit on publication. That’s the job of the Universe. The Universe will decide precisely the right time.
You’ve affirmed that you’re going to write a thousand words a day until the book is completed, however long it turns out to be. But affirm and visualize night and morning and keep affirming throughout the day
