“What’s your ‘stay fat’ strategy?”
“Is your past masquerading as your future?”
“Are you drowning in drama?”
And my favorite, “What’s the difference between you and an Olympic swimmer? … Seriously!”
You can be sure that these queries bring about lively conversation that ultimately helps to change their relationship not just with food, but with themselves!
And then the day culminates in an arts & crafts project. One such project that has popped up in previous workshops is: The Affirmation Container!
What is An Affirmation?
An affirmation is a form of auto-suggestion a.k.a. self-hypnosis, in which a statement is made about the future in the present tense, as if it had already happened in the past.
Yes, that's right. Repeat, please ... An affirmation is a statement about the future, made in the present, as if it had already happened in the past!
It is a statement or a desirable intention that you can deliberately meditate on, or repeat in order to embed in both your conscious and unconscious minds. It is a statement that transcends time and space.
Repetition opens the door to your unconscious mind. And your unconscious mind is much like a computer. Today, you are beginning to input the right program into your mind. Your programming is called the "I CAN" Program and it is designed by YOU!
When we speak in 'affirmations...'
"I am in control of my life, and I am committed to my goals."
... our unconscious hears the affirmation as a fact that is yet to be and it immediately seeks ways in which to manifest this new fact. Yes, your unconscious is taking your affirmation in as fact.
