If you want to live longer,
be happy, healthy and successful, all you have to do is tell yourself that you can do it by tapping the healing forces within
There is no greater joy
than a healthy, positive life. You feel exhilarated, energetic, happy and on top of the world. A sense of total well being
permeates your mind. The future looks bright. You feel good to be alive.
Great, but how do we get
out of our innumerable worries, tensions and fears that the increasingly competitive life burdens us with? Simple! Tell yourself
that you are good, healthy and capable. That is the power of positive affirmations.
Such affirmations are also
called self-suggestions. It is a powerful tool for transforming your inner self into an amazing health generating, self-healing
entity. You can record these affirmations on a tape synchronized with pleasant instrumental music and replay them often to
make them more effective and permanent.
says that our mind controls our body. So, taking charge of your mind becomes a vital factor in keeping your body healthy.
You can do this through affirmations that establish the power of your mind. Try: "With the power of positive thinking I now
take charge of my body to maintain perfect health, strength and happiness unconditionally, now and always, so be it." When
you repeat this, the misleading programs of your mind will be erased.
It is said that we are never
given a wish without the power to fulfill it. Each person is capable of programming his own mind to achieve what he desires.
You can tap this capability by following a few simple steps. But before you begin, make yourself totally relaxed and be consciously
willing to adopt the method.
Attuning yourself with nature
guarantees an overall healthy life. To modify this statement into an affirmation, say: "I attune myself with nature to stay
healthy now and forever."
You can have the right kind
of food by affirming: "I can attract healthy food to keep myself fit, healthy and strong, everyday."
You can develop the habit
of exercising your body and mind by affirming: "I can easily get up early in the morning everyday to exercise and keep fit
In case you are an insomniac,
all you have to do is repeat: "I can relax into sound sleep now and wake up revitalized, alert, bright and cheerful early
in the morning. It is done. So be it."
Sometimes, social influences
play their part in either inducing or encouraging negative thinking. This is the stage where most doctors give up the case
as incurable. So, to find the right doctor, suggest mentally to yourself: "I will locate the right doctor who can cure me
completely in a simple, easy and positive way, now and always."
Your health problems can
be dissolved by affirming: "I can now dissolve all my health problems, worries and fears easily, quickly and successfully
in simple, easy and positive ways. So be it."
sleeping, magnetic relaxation requires you to be physically at rest but subconsciously alert. When your conscious mind is
relaxed, the positive suggestions seep into your subconscious. To achieve maximum benefit from relaxation:
Sit in a comfortable chair
or lie down on a bed.
Let go of all the tension by repeating to yourself: "I can now relax comfortably. I can now relax
my body. I can now relax my mind. Easily, quickly and positively. Now I can enjoy the state of alert relaxation peacefully."
a feeling of soothing comfort take over.
Let go of yourself totally. Feel a universal healing energy surrounding you and
getting absorbed into your body and mind.
Feel a cool breeze around your body. Visualize a white sparkling light pouring
through your head down your body and seeping deep within you.
Think that soothing and healing forces are vibrating within
and radiating from you.
Maintain a positive and peaceful state of mind during the session. Also, take precautions that
you are not disturbed.
Mentally repeat to yourself: "Day by day in every way I'm getting better and better and better."
is a general formula that will heal you of all sickness. Emile Coue, a French doctor, recommended it for physical, mental
and emotional well-being. It can be mentally repeated as many times as possible.
subconscious has the knowledge, power, wisdom and understanding to heal and maintain perfect health. It is the interference
of negative suggestions that causes ill health and weakness. So, whenever you feel that something is not right, use affirmations
to get back on the right track. Here is a simple one that can be absorbed into your subconscious to keep your body fit: "Attuned
with universal healing powers and the source of life, all my body organs are now becoming normal and fit, and they will function
perfectly to maintain excellent health, strength and vitality up to a great age."
USING THE SUBCONSCIOUS
subconscious mind is perfectly programmed with a survival package in the form of universal instincts that can be synchronized
with conscious programs to live in harmony. Accepting your subconscious instincts relieves you of half of your health problems.
The subconscious is always
receptive to suggestions that transpire from your conscious mind. So keep your conscious mind filled with creative, positive,
pleasant, peaceful and productive thoughts. When you repeat an affirmation in a relaxed state of mind, it works wonders. To
retain these suggestions, repeat them often, till you feel confident that they have become a permanent habit.
The subconscious mind is
an all-powerful, omnipresent and omniscient gift. Peace will prevail in your life when these conditions are maintained. So,
affirm often: "I most willingly accept healthy, happy and self-healing success programs of my subconscious mind consciously
for total fitness, now and always."
It is easy to program your
subconscious to integrate your inner healing power into a self-healing force. All that you aspire for will come to pass. New
friends, new relationships, new ideas, new thoughts and new plans can motivate you to become a powerful optimist. So affirm:
"Today I am a new, dynamic, and optimistic futurist flooded with positive thoughts of successful self-healing."
VITAL LIFE ENERGY
energy plays a vital role in self-healing. The more energy you generate through eating, breathing and exercising, the longer
you will live with health and happiness. It is said that man does not live by bread alone but by every word that comes out
of his mouth. When we speak to ourselves in positive terms, we tend towards self-healing. We can build up positive statements
I am healing myself positively.
energy is keeping me healthy.
Healing myself and others is easy for me.
I have the positive habit of deep breathing.
I am feeling better than ever before.
Tomorrow I am going to be perfectly all right.
FEEL YOUNG, LIVE LONGER
is an attitude of the mind. When you think youthful, you feel youthful. Energy can also be enhanced by being active, alert
and awake most of the time.
In my experimentation with
autosuggestion, I feel that new frontiers can be explored in the process of evolution. Some of them are:
to reverse aging. Take it as a challenge.
Use the countdown method to feel young and energetic after 50. Subtract the number
of years that you are over 50 from 50 and affirm that age constantly. For example, if you are 55, all that you have to do
is to count downwards the years of your age by subtracting five from 50 and imagine that you are 45. Now build up positive
magnetic statement like: "Today I am 45 years young."
The second phase is to regain
the natural color and abundance of youthful hair on your head. But consistent practice coupled with firm determination is
required on your part. You can begin the practice right now by affirming: "I am determined to regain all the hair on my head
with its natural youthful color as soon as possible." Mentally repeat it 21 times just before you go to sleep at night.
IN SEVEN DAYS
The magnetic self-healing schedule that follows is an invincible method that can take you to the height of
perfect health, strength and happiness. After practicing it for a period of seven days you will find that all your past health
problems automatically disappear. The watchword here is consistency. All that you have to do is read the affirmations as soon
as you get up in the morning and before going to sleep. It has cured me. It can do the same for you. Now read the following:
I'm relaxed, my body is relaxed.
My mind is relaxed, my emotions are relaxed.
I am now totally relaxed.
getting better, stronger and happier forever.
Now make yourself comfortable. Read the affirmation given below focusing
your eyes in a half-closed manner as if you are reading it half asleep.
Hold your breath comfortably
and read each statement twice. Relax after reading it. Don't hurry. Don't worry. You will see the difference from the very
first day. After you practice the magnetic affirmations for seven days, let go of it. You can always come back to the seven-day
program whenever you feel the need. You can mentally repeat each affirmation for the whole day but remember to hold your breath
while doing so. Now repeat:
My body and mind are clean
and energetic. I love my body.
Today I am becoming strong, powerful, dynamic, happy-go-lucky and attractive.

Do it for seven days at a stretch and discover the new, optimistic
you who can take anything in his stride. It only takes a little belief and a little determination to change your life.
