What Do You Remember?

Affirmations:  (Does anyone want to learn how to use affirmations effectively? See below!)
I now give and receive all Good and only Good.
Everything works more exquisitely than I can plan.
I love life and life loves me.
I forgive myself for limiting myself.

What Do You Remember?
What Do You Forget?

Do you choose to remember the hardships and difficulties in life?
Do you choose to forget the good times, blessing and sacred moments?
Or do you choose to forget the negative experiences and remember only the good?
Some believe we need to remember our mistakes and the dangers in life.

What do you believe?
What do you focus on?
What do you tell stories about?
What keeps you protected and safe?

When we are in a survival mode, it would be logical to remember what we need to survive.
When we are in the socialization mode, it would be helpful to remember what to do and not to do.
When we are in the achievement mode, it is practical to remember how to create success.
When we are in the Self-Actualization mode, it is helpful to inspire ourselves to fully be.

It makes sense to learn and use the material that fits for you.
It seems logical to take in what is in alignment with your beliefs and values.
It would be beneficial to collect evidence to support your choices and lifestyle.
It is understandable to remember what gives you a sense of sanity, empowerment and success.

Forgiveness is an eraser filled with Love, at its best.
Forgiveness allows us to forget what no longer has value.
Forgiveness cleans the closet of our consciousness.
Forgiveness opens inner doors to learn and remember more of what is ‘True” for us.

When we forgive, we no longer focus on the past failures and misfortune.
When we forgive, we no longer tell stories of the painful past.
When we forgive, we are released from the limitations of our fear-based thinking.
When we forgive, we look forward to creating and experiencing the Good we deserve.

When we have learned what is needed, it is integrated.
When we have come to peace with our past, we can let go.
When we have a new canvas, unlimited possibilities and a renewed faith in the future, we can choose again.
When we are complete with what was, we need no longer focus on our past, but simply bless it all.

Is it time for you to move on?
Are you stuck with the old, because you are afraid?
Can you honestly bless and release what was?
Is it time to forgive and forget, because it is complete?

Waste no energy on hanging on.
Complete what was with gratitude.
Linger not in the past.
Look forward to what will be in the furure.
Forgive your fear.
Open to a renewed faith.
Judge not and learn from everything.
Bless your whole life with forgiveness now.

Loving you in loving you,
Betty Lue

My favorite way to do affirmations is to divide the lined page down the middle.  The affirmation is written on the left side and your mind chatter or contradictory thought is written on the right side.  Then cross off the negative.  Write the affirmation again on the left and listen to your mind chatter and write on the right.  Cross the mind chatter off.  Continue writing the affirmation 20 time and listen for the resistant thought after each one. 
  I would do it all by hand, so I could cross it off with my pen!!  20 times daily for 14 days or until there is no resistance.  Do no more than three different affirmations at a time.  Things may change dramatically, so be prepared to notice big difference.  Life works when we are willing to do the work.  Ask me for help if you have trouble finding the affirmations that are most effective for you. Always choose an affirmation that you resist, because it will help clear away what is blocking your Good.
They will always feel like a lie in the beginning and you may find great resistance to doing them!!

Useful suggestions for applying the technique of Autosuggestion to the Affirmations
Write each affirmation 10 to 20 times. 
Writing is an extremely powerful technique of autosuggestion.
Work with one or more every day. Good times are just before sleeping, before starting the day and especially whenever you feel at effect.  
They can also be recorded on cassette tape and played back to yourself. 
The best way to do that is by recording each affirmation 5 or 10 times so that you have time to think about them when they are playing.
Make a list of the affirmations that are most meaningful to you.
Put specific names and situations into the affirmations.
Play with the vocabulary in the affirmation--make it personal and meaningful to  yourself.
Say the affirmations to yourself in the first, second and third persons as follows:  
I,  (name), now like myself.  You, (name), now like yourself.   Name, now likes him/herself. 
Feel free to invent new ones.
Continue working with them daily until they become totally integrated into your consciousness.
To dissolve negative mental patterns and free maximum aliveness in your consciousness, write each affirmation in order 10 or 20 times.  
Note the ones that are most meaningful or produce the greatest charge.  
Continue working with these until they go flat.  
When they go flat, you are at total cause and master of the results implied by the affirmations.
