Creative Visualization Affirmations

Take time for what matters, and take time to manifest some creative visualization affirmations.  You don’t need to sit cross-legged in a yoga posture (my knees simply don’t bend like that anymore!) You don’t need solitude, or a special candle, or incense.  For creative visualization affirmations, all you you need to do is daydream.  That’s right – daydream.

First day on the job

First day on the job

Say that you want a new job.   You know where you would like to work, – a particular company, or office, whatever the environment – visualize it.  If you can, visit the worksite, so you know what it looks like.  Then, daydream about seeing yourself there.  At the desk in the right hand corner.  See yourself walking in each morning, saying hi to the boss and your coworkers.  Daydream for a few minutes and plan out your first day at work.  Walk yourself through it.  Where will you have lunch?  Who will you have a coffee with?

Travel Plans

Now, you decide you want to travel.  Where?  When?  Daydream about walking along the river in Budapest.  Or the left bank in Paris.  Find photos of your dream vacation, and make a vision board about it.  Then, close your eyes, and visualize yourself getting off the plane in Costa Rica.

Where do you want to go in life?

Where do you want to go in life?

Whew – it’s more humid than I thought!  Oh look – over there, under the palm tree, is a stand selling guava drinks.  Icy cold.  Oh, that tastes so sweet and good!  Walk along the beach, sandals off, warm sand between your toes, soft ocean waves lapping at your feet.

If you can hold it in your head, you can hold it in your hand

Once you daydream your vision, think of one phrase that you can repeat over and over that will help you focus on manifesting your dream.  Something like: “what will it take to visit Kuala Lumpur?” That is the first step in making your dream a reality.  Money? How much? Call a travel agent, go online, find a trip you want to take, know what it will cost, and see yourself saving the money, week by week – a trip jar, perhaps.  Then, put all  (ALL) your spare change, every night, in the trip jar.  A clear glass jar, so you can see the money grow.  Visualize the jar filled to the brim.  See yourself taking the jar to the bank, to convert the change into an airplane ticket. Then, as your creative visualization affirmation, repeat that phrase, “what will it take to visit Kuala Lumpur”,  over and over, maybe 30 times throughout the day, as you go about your day.

Be specific and know it will happen

Think of it like placing an order for a meal in a restaurant.  You order the salmon.  You know you will be served salmon.  You don’t say to the waiter “bring me some food” and wonder about what you will get.  You specifically say “bring me salmon” and you get salmon.  The more

specific you can make your daydream, the more it will become a reality.  See, feel, taste, hear everything in your daydream that you expect in the manifestation of the reality.  With a few creative visualization affirmations, and deciding what it will take to make it a reality,  you will have the life you want.

Harness the Power of Change

In her book, Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway Dr Susan Jeffers speaks to the result of habituation: “If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you’ve got.” In other words, unless we break habits and re-focus ourselves to change with mindful purpose, we will Screen Shot 2015-04-03 at 9.15.30 PMalways feel frustrated because we will not be able to break patterns that don’t serve us.

We cannot rely on others to do the changing for us. Self belief and self empowerment, by their very definition, come from within. Living mindfully, with purpose, gives you an opportunity for you to look inside and change any behavior that does not support you in being the best version of you. Here are a few tips to keep you on that path:


First become AWARE of what you need to change. What habits are blocking you from realizing your full potential? What do you want your future to look like? What is your vision for yourself? The first step is AWARENESS.


Second you must BELIEVE it is possible to change. Many people entertain change in their minds as a kind of fantasy. But it is a reality that lies within your power.


The third is COMMITMENT. Motivation is the key to commitment. We must want to change, rather than feel it is our duty to do so. Change can be very challenging when we feel we have to instead of Want To.


Finally we have to have the DISCIPLINE to change. We cannot change ourselves unless we are able to maintain a steady course over time. Think of each step in the process of change as an achievement or major landmark passed. Even if we find ourselves slipping into old habits, that achievement cannot be taken away. We do not have to cover the same ground again: every time we step forward we are covering new road.
