The power of language, and its workings on my sub-conscious mind, never ceases to amaze me. Words have feelings and emotions attached to them, by our association.

When I say the word MOTHER, every single one of you experienced a different feeling and emotion. Your subconscious received that communicated word, via your emotions and feelings. We often believe that it is the actual words producing a particular state, when in fact it is our associative perceptions of those words that communicate.

Recently, I was watching a program about Louise Hay. One of the guest experts in that program mentioned that, in personal growth circles, we are often asked to declare what we want for ourselves and express that as an affirmation e.g. I WANT A NEW HOUSE.

In using an affirmation beginning with the words I WANT, you are actually expressing it as a WANT, and your subconscious will be set to a wanting state of mind in relation to that thing.

Consider using the words I CHOOSE, to begin each affirmative statement. For example, I choose to have a new house. Your subconscious will be more receptive to the idea, and it also causes you to be more pro-active in the process, instead of sitting on a mountain top waiting for some external source to bring you items from a wish-list.

Rather than stating I am an enthusiastic person, consider using the words - I choose to feel more enthusiastic. When you say, I am enthusiastic, you are effectively telling your subconscious that you are enthusiastic enough and no more attention needs to be paid to its development. You also put a hidden ceiling on your potential, for yet greater enthusiasm.

Christopher Howard once said, in a seminar I attended, that he had been telling himself that his success was always JUST AROUND THE CORNER. Guess what? That"s exactly where his success remained, always inches away, and always JUST AROUND THE CORNER…until he changed his language to, perhaps something like, I choose to experience my success now.

What language do you use, to express your desires? That old adage, be careful what you ask for because you just may get it, is so very true.

It is also important to note that it may not even be the new house that you actually seek to manifest. It is the FEELING that a new house would bring into your life, that you are after.

If you think you have to get THIS in order to have THAT, then what you really want is THAT, and not THIS.

Get in touch with what is in the background of those THINGS, for which you ask. What feelings and emotions will become more pronounced and amplified, whilst you produce those desired end results? What is it that you truly want to experience during the course of your life?

As in the words of Pericles, “What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others”. Decide to build a legacy, then bring your focus and attention there. Choose to live large!
