When I learnt I could attract the life I wanted and it was not dependent on others, I was excited! I was told to use affirmations and visualizations, as tools in my effort for change. I did but nothing happened. I became frustrated till I learnt emotions were a key element in the process.
You see, emotions have a vibration which the universe picks up and acts upon. Therefore, when I visualized my affirmations, I needed to also feel the corresponding emotion. This was not as easy as it sounds.
While I could visualize with ease what I wanted, feeling like I already had it was difficult. It was difficult because I felt I was lying to myself-something I try my best not to do. So as a result, nothing changed.
Not being the kind of person who gives up, I kept doing my affirmations and visualizations as I did more research. The more I researched, the more it became clear, emotions were the missing piece. I had to feel the emotion of the wish fulfilled without any resistance. How was I going to get myself to believe that something I wanted had already happened for me?
For me, meditation was the key. I discovered that when I meditated, I became relaxed, and entered a dream like state which made it possible for me to rewire my mind, with no resistance, into accepting my affirmations as already completed.
Once I was able to successfully include my emotions in the process, thing started to change.
