How’z it? (This is how they speak in South Africa)
Sorry, I can’t tell you more, I forgot how they speak in the streets. Besides, I don’t roam around as a kid hip-hopper anymore. 😊
Okay, let me try and tell you a bit more. We have twelve official languages in South Africa. South Africans often have some South African expressions coming from these languages. You know when you hear a word, you gather that the speaker has just said something funny because the word itself sounds funny? South Africans have some really nice expressions.
Let’s go make a cool drink, hey it’s hot here… Okay, I’ll wait till you go and make a hot drink especially if you’re welcoming Christmas with cold spells. 😊
Right, let’s hit it!
Be exact about what you are asking the universe for, what’s this about? Curious, Alright, did you read this blog post of mine sometime back? If your answer is no, please have a read, as this will take you to an advanced level when it comes to understanding what we’re going to talk about here. If you have read this article some time ago, please read it again so that you can refresh your memory even though you are practising it.
I’ll wait for you while you read it…
Alright, so you’ve been making your own affirmations up to now. I am so happy that you are doing that. Can I ask you a question? Have you been doing this?
I am amazing
I am happy
I am love
I am peace
I am discipline
I am having fun
It’s good that you are practising affirmations. I feel like it’s time to go up a notch. See it’s not simple, hard work is required to get the results you want even when you are working with yourself and trying to improve everything from inside of you. You might be (I definitely will) saying affirmations for my whole life. The truth is that you want it to work for you now. What I am about to tell you will take you from level 0 – 10 (saying that 10 is the highest level), like, say you are in grade six but want to get on to a grade ten thinking or exam. I’m giving you the quick route to get there so that what you want out of life can manifest quickly.
Why? Because the “I am amazing,” “I am happy,” “I am love,” “I am peace,” “I am discipline,” “I am having fun,” etc. affirmations will come true, the reason why you have to keep saying them is so that you can embody it. They are very good affirmations but when you get to, say two years or less down the line you might find that these affirmations are taking place in small and short-term desires.
Keep saying them, to get to the greater things in life you need to work out the little details, but now you are two to three years down the line saying the same affirmations… you need to do more work. By this time, you would have fully known what you really want to manifest, exactly what that is? If you’re a first-timer learning this then lucky you, you can go onto writing out your own affirmations to the exact thing that you want using the basics around the article on the link above.
What do I mean? Here are a few hypothetical examples with being exact about what you are asking the universe for…
- I am living in my dream house near the sea on a cliff with an amazing view of the sky, sea, mountains hills and greenery now.
- I am meditating in the most wonderful setting daily where I can hear the sea, wind, trees, birds and I am feeling the gentle air on my skin now.
- I am having fun meditating alone and with groups of people who enjoy the same spiritual practises as often as possible now.
See, isn’t that better? This is what I mean by asking the universe exactly what you want and it’s important that you set a time for it; now because maybe these affirmations are something you desire now, of course, we humans are always desiring more and more and as quick as possible. It’s likely that the majority of you reading this article will likely want your affirmations to come true as soon as they possibly can and not when you’re one hundred and ten years old.
The more you use I am and end your sentence off with now you begin to believe it as time goes on. The more you believe it the quicker it manifests because you automatically begin to trust it will happen in the right time soon. So yes, like a Christmas list to Santa Claus, go right ahead and write down all your intentions through your affirmations and be very very exact. If you don’t know where to begin, visualise it, and you will feel it, but I am pretty sure you already know what you want, your higher self already knows this.
Let me know next year this time which wishes Santa Claus sorry I mean the Universe has fulfilled.
Alright, that’s me for this Sunday,
I hope you had or are still having a lovely weekend.
Over and out…
