January 11, 2011. I cry at movies and commercials and youtube videos and people hugging at the airport and puppies playing and...well you get the picture. Even though I am not part of the action or in the movie to the brain it doesn't matter. The mind will fool us because our brains don't really work with the concept of reality. That's why we can upset ourselves just by demoralizing thoughts or catastrophizing what can go wrong.
So as Dr Dyer says, "as you think, so shall you be." You become what you think, in yogic terms you create your own reality from the inside. In other words, the world is not created "out there" and then experienced internally.You can tell yourself what you want to believe and this in and of itself fools your mind into wanting it and believing it to be real. And your mind will find a way to make it happen (because it thinks it has). As Einstein says, the predecessor to every action is a thought.
Affirmations work! Pick one of these each day for the rest of the month and just say it to yourself all day long, write it down, email it to yourself, post it up. Surround yourself with it for one day, each at a time. And see for yourself that Affirmations are what yoga talks about in harnessing the power of minds, or our intentions and directing them in the direction of our best selves. Love your day, love yourself, love your life! Silvia

HOW TO RECEIVE LOVE AND ATTRACT AMAZING PEOPLE
September 24, 2009: This week we've been focusing on Mantra meditation in celebration of the Fall Equinox which offers us a highly opportune time to Release the old, Reflect on what we want and Receive support from the universe to welcome the new chapter of our lives. It's been my experience that as much as we are all seeking to love others and be loved actually allowing ourselves to Receive has a learning curve. Just like happiness is a learning curve.
Monday we focused on the Mantra "I Am Ready for Change" really letting go of the old stories, wounds, hurts, worries, fear of this last part of our lives. We also worked on saying to ourselves early in the week “I Am Grounded in Acceptance” based around this contemplation of whether we are running away from our life or can we find the courage to face our difficulties and joys with equal acceptance. Only once we accept can we really do the work of creating. We continued the week with the Affirmation "I Create My Reality" where it was time to be honest with ourselves and Reflect on what we truly want in our lives and which direction we wish to go next.
Today our affirmation is "I Attract Amazing People." This represents our ability to receive support and love from other people as we allow ourselves to evolve towards greater experiences of happiness. And I assure you we are readier than we ever have been to receive and be happy. I know this and more importantly you know this because in class when we breath more deeply into ourselves it feels wonderful! You guys, this reflects our willingness to breath in life, to be more conscious, more present, more receptive.
So today, just say to yourself I Attract Amazing People and do that for the next week as we transition into Fall, see what happens when you wholeheartedly welcome joy, love and happiness into your life!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for joining me on the mat on Thursday's. Love to you all! Silvia
(PS I welcome your stories of how this affirmation made a difference!)
