The Amazing Power of ‘Afformations’

Why Do We Ask Why? Part II

 

A reader asked why we ask the “why?” questions in the What Your Body Wants to Hear Meditations. I explained the theory behind it in my blog post Why Do We Ask Why?.  A few of you tried making a positive affirmation then asking a question and felt the difference in the energy between the two.  People who initially thought it would be a negative thing tried it out and realised that far from being negative, it opens us up to the many blessings we actually do have in our lives.  It helps us see what is going right for us. In the case of physical healing, it reminds us of all the parts of our bodies which are working beautifully.

The “Why” questions are a method of bridging from the releasing statements to the positive affirmations. It could otherwise be too large a jump for people to go straight in to really feeling the positive. It is also a way to get around the mind saying “yes but..” to a positive affirmation. There is a very different energy around the “Why” statements, try it for yourself, you will probably feel it. For example if you say “I am abundant” your mind will probably jump to the reasons you are not abundant, “I’ve got this debt/I haven’t got any money” that kind of thing. If on the other hand you say “Why am I so abundant?” the mind tends to go to the things you are abundant in, love, friends, pets, health etc. There is less resistance to the “Why” statements and they help to lead you in to the positive.

This video is a powerful illustration of what happens to the mind/body when you state something you don’t believe is true as opposed to asking a question.

 

Instead of fighting with our brains and bodies, let’s choose to work with them.  As one lovely lady said after listening to the What Your Body Wants To Hear: Support Your Heart programme:-

“I’ve found out your work is not about trying to “overcome” something or even to heal something “wrong.” Your work is intended to promote well-being”.

She was absolutely right. All is well.

Love,

Barbara

By celoraelorca from United Kingdom about Beyond Affirmations – Guided Meditations (version 1.3, Apple App Store) on Apr 29, 2014

I love this series of apps. Barbara’s charming voice, both comforting and reassuring, gently guides the listener through a unique and powerful healing using her three-part affirmation sequence, comprising releasing statements, empowering questions and positive healing affirmations. The background music by Thaddeus is restful and perfectly complements Barbara’s voice. Each app concentrates on a specific emotional issue/part of the body, making them ideal for each person’s individual healing. I am finding Barbara’s affirmations life-enhancing. Using them daily I certainly feel I am shifting ‘stuck stuff’ and helping to restore a healthy energy flow. A high-quality recording which is very easy to use. A brilliant feature is that the volume control can be changed independently for the voice and music. Highly recommended. Yes!Yes!Yes!

There Is No Mine Or Yours, There is Only Ours

There Is No Mine Or Yours, There is Only Ours

tn_NoOwnership

My thanks to Facebook page Zen to Zany for this lovely image.

This lovely image was one of the first things I saw on my FB news feed this morning. It was rather interesting or “coincidental” as I’d been thinking of writing this article through the night.

There is no yours or mine, there is no ownership. I was thinking about this when I received some wonderful feed back about my latest What Your Body Wants To Hear programme Release Grief & Trauma.

A lovely lady told me she’d very much enjoyed it when she used it for herself. She had also used it in a slightly different way than I’d anticipated when I created it. She had used it to send healing to others who she knew were suffering from the issues covered in the recording. What a wonderful idea and not one I’d thought of.

The constraints of language and the interests of clarity and brevity led me to call myself the “creator” of the W.Y.B.W.H. process but I actually don’t believe that.

When I feel inspired to write a programme I feel pulled towards it, it comes alive in me. The words flow and mostly it is very easy. In other words it comes through me.

Often when a great invention appears on the planet more than one person has been working on the idea. In our old energy, competitive human world, someone then rushes to grab the patent But that is not the aspect I want to discuss. I believe more than one person is inspired to explore along similar lines because the time and need for that invention or idea to manifest on the planet is here. The idea does not belong to anyone, the potential exists and the person who is in the right vibration at the right time brings it through.

There is a lot of discussion about lack of ownership, increased co-operation, co-creation and a new way of being at the moment and I find it incredibly exciting.

In his recent channels, Story Waters has been talking about lack of ownership, openness, no more secrets. Steve Rother has been saying similar things about restrictive copyright rules and no more secrets. Kryon has also talked about it. Gregg Braden is talking about the wisdom of the indigenous, of new ways of being in community and Bruce Lipton has been explaining how our cells live in cooperative community.

The same core message is coming from or through many people. Each with their own unique perspective and delivery in order to reach and resonate with as many people as possible.

So when this lovely lady told me how she’d used my work I was absolutely delighted. Just as I was delighted when Richard Flook was happy to hear that I had integrated some of his work in to my own. Except there we go again, the constraints of language. It is not my own. I simply brought it through in a particular way, a particular vibration and flavour for others to use, benefit from and adapt if they feel inspired to do so.

With love and deep gratitude,

Barbara

 

 

WILL POWER OR INTENTION?

tn_PeaceLoveWell

Whether we are talking about healing, forgiveness or deliberate creation of any kind. There is a tendency for our minds to kick in and try to use the power of the will to create what we want.

This I believe is where the “War on” attitude our society is so fond of came from. Since Richard Nixon popularised the term back in 1971 we have wars on drugs, cancer, child abuse, poverty, crime. You name it, we have a war on it. We haven’t won any of them and we’re never going to.

As long as we perpetuate the idea that we are at war, we add to the energy of war. Conflict and striving against is not the energy that brings peace, prosperity or healing.

With my passion for healing, I cringe every time I hear about the war on cancer for example. Without going in to detail, since Ronald Regan declared the “War on Cancer” in 1975 America has spent over two trillion dollars trying to end the war i.e. develop a cure. The methods have changed very little and still include chemotherapy, developed from Nitrogen Mustard Gas a chemical warfare agent used in the First and Second World Wars. It’s obvious by now that war analogies and will power don’t work.

So what is the difference between will and intention?

The language of “must”, “should”, “strive”, “fight” etc. comes from the ego. Your mind will speak to you that way, your soul won’t. Your soul communicates with you through loving, gentle, inspirational impulses.

As Robert Schwartz explains, “If I have a bow and arrow and my objective is to shoot the arrow to the centre of a target, can I will the arrow to the centre of the target? No, I can’t. Can I intend the arrow to hit the centre of the target? Yes of course I can. Can you feel the difference between these two things?” Will power is a constricted energetic state. Intention contains a lot more gentleness and kindness and it is expansive.

You create healing and anything else you want through gentle, kind intention. Not through beating yourself up and saying “I have to…!”

I was absolutely delighted when someone wrote this about my work. “But I’ve found out your work is not about trying to “overcome” something or even to heal something “wrong.” Your work is intended to promote well-being.”

This lady really understood, it’s not about fighting, it’s about setting a loving, gentle intention and allowing.

Love,

Barbara

 

 

 

 

SCARED OF THE LAW OF ATTRACTION?

Law of Attraction “Aren’t the releasing and clearing statements  going to bring me more of what I don’t want?”

People have asked me if listening to and allowing the releasing statements in my guided meditations in to their subconscious minds will bring them more of what they don’t want as described in many Law of Attraction teachings.

Some Law of Attraction teachings set people up to be frightened of having even a tiny negative thought and I believe this is a mistake.

As some wise spiritual teachers tell us, “You cannot be in the light by being in denial of the darkness”.* In other words, if you speak positive words but hold negative beliefs, the positive words will be at best, much less powerful.

My background in Emotional Freedom Technique taught me that although we may have or be manifesting an issue or dis-ease that is not who we are!

Louise L Hay says, “You will never create health by talking or thinking about illness” and that is true. But there is a huge difference between stating a problem briefly with the intention to clear and release it and dwelling on it, complaining endlessly about it, joining groups of like minded people to continue talking about it or building your life around it.

You CAN heal. You CAN change your thoughts but please be gentle with yourself as you learn to turn your negative thoughts and words into positive ones. Don’t be afraid if a negative thought crosses your mind or a negative word passes your lips. The fear will give it more power and anchor it in to reality. Just be aware of it and let it pass. Remind yourself that kind of thinking is your old habit, you are now creating new habits.

And lastly, if part of you is ill or in dis-ease. Don’t get angry or blame it, treat it with gentleness and love as you would a sick child or puppy.

With love,

Barbara
