Yes? Are you satisfied with your work? Are you satisfied with your family relations? Do you enjoy what you are doing now? If at least one of these questions you answered "no", then our article will be interesting and useful for you. Very many people want to change something in their lives, but do not know what and when to take. Someone heard scraps of information about positive thinking, someone - about how to make a wish card or use affirmations, but neither one nor the other does not understand how it works. We will disclose this secret to you.
Principles of positive thinking
Everyone has his own judgment aboutthe world: someone considers him evil and negative, someone - kind and positive. In fact, the universe is neutral and gives us exactly what we want to get. More precisely, we do not just want to, but what we program ourselves for. The mechanism of action is far from mysticism and is very simple: our mental processes (memory, attention, thinking, perception) are selective. As a rule, a bad and good thing happens to a person approximately equally, but he notices and fixes only what is programmed. The same thing happens with concrete phenomena: in fact, any event is neutral, and we give it meaning and meaning to ourselves at the moment when we perceive or ponder it. And if you want to become happy and successful, then you need to be able to think positively. Positive attitude to life includes three components:
- perception and thinking;
- affirmations (the so-called "formulas of happiness");
Positive perception and thinking is based ondescription and perception of everything that happens to a person and around him in a positive way. In the people it is usually called optimism. The best illustration to this ability is the example with the notorious half-empty glass: an optimist and a pessimist see it differently, although the essence of this does not change. The same thing happens with life events, only a pessimist seems distressed and unhappy, and an optimist - cheerful and happy. In life, this works very simply: formulate your thoughts in a positive and not negative way, for example, not "I can not come in half an hour," but "I'll come in an hour." A positive attitude is the belief that you will succeed. It is inextricably linked with positive self-esteem, thanks to which thoughts arise in the mind such as "I can," "I am ready," "I am worthy" and "I will succeed." The key here are two points: firstly, the self-centeredness (this, in many ways, brings the person success), and, secondly, in each phrase there is a positive connection between success and this very self. Affirmations are positive statements that emphasize what a person would like to have (qualities, abilities, skills, skills, things and events). They are built with the support of the future, but always in the present. An example of affirmation can be the following phrases: "With each passing day, I find it easier and easier to establish contacts with people," "The amount of money is increasing," "I sell more and more goods," etc. ... Affirmations are very useful, but only with their regular use. You can pronounce them to yourself or out loud, record and listen many times and even sing! It should be remembered that the mechanical interpretation of them without involving emotions and feelings is meaningless, since it does not charge you with positive energy. There are certain rules on which it is necessary to make affirmations, so that they work:
What is a wish card?
In order to understand how to mapdesires, you need to begin to understand what it is. The technique of visualization has long been used in psychology as a way to instill in the consciousness a certain positive image. One of its options is directly collage - the creation of an eclectic product from everything that comes to hand: pictures, photographs from magazines, drawings, pieces of cloth and other small items. Desire cards are also called cards of dreams, treasures or life goals - they all contribute to the realization of your desires and fantasies. How it works? As we already wrote above, our consciousness is arranged in such a way that it perceives the surrounding world depending on the installation. Cards of desires are one of the ways of its formation, and very, very effective. Unlike affirmation, he also uses imaginative thinking, which is what allows us to go deeper and better into the imagined situation of success, to draw it in our imagination. Any dream, fixed on paper - it's not just a dream, but a specific goal, which is sure to come true in the near future. So you more clearly understand what you want, and take the first steps to implement it. You give power to your plans. This is how psychics work with respect to the impact on the future: they simply have great experience, but they use all the same psychological methods and techniques. Desires and affirmations are used by many famous people. In particular, TV presenters Victoria Bonya and Alena Vodonaeva recently admitted that they regularly make such collages, and after all these girls know how to achieve their goals. We asked them and other successful people about how to create a wish card.
How to make a wish card correctly?
Each of us has some kind of dreams and desires,which can remain unrealized if you do not reformulate them into affirmations and take the first steps towards their implementation. Cards of desires will help you to show all this - even that which was not completely realized. It so happened that in creativity and art therapy (to which the collage refers) it is much easier to express yourself than in words. Why talk about something, if you can just draw it? Therefore, read about how to make a wish card correctly. What do you need for this?
- A large sheet of Whatman (A2 is quite suitable);
- Sharp scissors;
- Scotch tape or glue;
- Photos on which you have turned out well;
- Magazines, newspapers, advertising posters, brochures, etc. ...;
- Color pencils, paints, markers, crayons, pens, markers, etc. ...;
- Pieces of cloth, ribbons, leaves, shells, bumps, petals, etc. ...
- Good background music;
- Creative ideas;
Before you start making a wish card,tune in to a positive creative wave. This will be facilitated by a disc with your favorite relaxing music, which must be turned on for about ten minutes before the start of the process. Think about what you, creating a wish card, will create your own life, because you are its main author and hero! A few words about the structure of the card itself. Many people in the collage are guided by the principles of feng shui - why do not we do the same? Although you can also arrange your desires on the map in a random order. So, first, you need to divide the paper of the paper into nine sectors according to the Bagua grid: southeast (upper left), south (top), southwest (upper right), east (left), center, west (right) , north-east (lower left), north (bottom) and north-west (lower right). In each of them will be located the zone responsible for an important area of your life. After that, you can sketch a list of your desires. It should not be too long - no more than ten: it's better to choose the most basic ones, and when they come true - supplement this card or make a new one. So you will not be "scattered" in small things, and this is insurance against an empty waste of energy. In addition, the volume of human consciousness is limited to numbers from five to ten. Do not go beyond it. Now it's time to cut out and select the appropriate images for the sectors. They must necessarily be cheerful and positive. On your map is not the place of gloomy and gloomy images! They also need to be colored and deep to evoke the appropriate sensations. It is not superfluous to add here tactile sensitivity, using different textures, such as pebbles or wool. Let's start with the center in which dreams of health should be located. This is the place for you - beautiful and happy! Here you can put a photo of an effective body from the magazine you want to have. Be sure to sign the pictures (otherwise it will be unclear what they symbolize), only without the particle "not" and the words "losing weight" - they carry negative energy. It is desirable in the signatures to use specific figures: dates, amounts, terms - this is even more motivating! The "Wealth" sector is located on the southeast of the map. There you will place all the pictures depicting your dreams about material wealth: an apartment, a car, diamonds, a new bag and just money. That's where the full expanse awaits you! We can offer you a funny idea about filling this sector: put a money bill there and draw on it the necessary number of zeros. Add a signature in the spirit of "on my bank account a million dollars." For other items, the signatures may sound like "I'm driving my new car" or "I'm wearing Chanel boots". In the sector dedicated to the family - it is in the east of the map - select the pictures that represent the ideal family in your understanding. It can be a caring husband, obedient children, happy parents. You can paste photos here that capture the happy moments of your life, and when your faces shine with joy. The "Career" sector is located in the north of the map. It should be filled with pictures that characterize the work of your dreams. What are you doing in this position? What does your company do? You can even draw up a timetable for your career by depicting a ladder and inscribing stages in the form of dates and posts on each of its steps. You can use such formulations as "I run organization N". For the love sector located in the south-west, select pictures that show happy couples and all kinds of romantic attributes: hearts, valentines, Cupid's arrows, wedding rings, etc. ... Here you can also put everything associated with the wedding (especially important for unmarried women), because this is a sector of not only love, but also marriage. Signatures should reflect the content of pictures, for example, "every day I more and more love my boyfriend." In the west there is a zone devoted to children and creativity. It is better to fill it with photos of happy toddlers and pictures with what relates to the kind of creativity you like. For example, if you like drawing (or want to start doing it), then put in this sector images with an easel, brushes and paints. An example of the signatures to these pictures can be "I draw a beautiful picture" or "I am surrounded by my wonderful children." The knowledge and wisdom sector (northeast) should include everything that is associated with the mind: photos of famous sages and their quotes, attributes of the qualities, skills and abilities that you would like to acquire. Suit everything that relates to positive thinking, as well as certificates and diplomas, confirming that you have all these competencies. Do not forget to inscribe something like "I solve mathematical problems with ease" or "I have a brilliant skill in writing business plans". And the last sector, located in the north-west - is the sector of travel and assistants. Here, attach pictures depicting the numerous cities and countries where you would like to visit. Also here you can put photos of those people whom you consider your assistants or patrons. The inscriptions may read as follows: "My Guardian Angel is bringing me luck" or "I'm happy to travel around Europe". So your treasure map is ready. Do not forget to update it when this or that desire comes true, or if suddenly you find out that a dream is not your true desire. This is related to energy - it should not stagnate. In general, the more often you turn to your wish card, the faster your dreams will be fulfilled. A few words about where to place a wish card. On the one hand, it should be constantly in sight to influence your life, and on the other - it should be hidden from prying eyes. A great place in this case will be the bedroom or cabinet door, which you see whenever you open it and choose clothes for today. If your family and friends can laugh at the map, then it is better to hide it from them - it brings negative energy into the collage. In conclusion, I want to say that it is not easy to make a wish card - you need to work with it every day. What is the work like? You have to look at it daily and imagine that your dreams have come true, to immerse yourself completely in these images. So you really become a girl from a happy future, in which all this already exists. Work with your feelings: experience joy, happiness, delight, openness, passion, because they all are real life!
