New Age Motivational Tools

Affirmations and Visualizations for Prosperity
New Age philosophy got its name from the belief that we are at the threshold of a New Age. New Agers contend that the world is going through a paradigm shift, a time when accepted ways of thinking and acting change drastically, because of new discoveries.For example, the invention of writing and of agriculture triggered paradigm shifts that led to a whole new way of living. According to New Agers, we are going through a paradigm shift through new discoveries in physics and psychology.
The judgmental (left)) side of our brain limits our possibilities for creativity. In contrast, the right side of our brain tells us that reality is what we make it. We need to be more creative in order to live up to our possibilities. In fact, some New Agers believe that we are actually gods, possessing mysterious powers that we do not know that have, including the ability to transform reality to conform to our desires. We have these abilities because there is already an underlying oneness between our beings and the universe. Nuclear physics discovery that matter and energy is the same suggests that everything is made up of the same energy. Hence, we, as energetic beings, interact with the energy of our environment to create our own destinies.
The New Age movement has adapted many of the same tools used by the Eastern and Wiccan tradition that we have discussed: crystals, Tarot cards, meditation techniques, astrology, etc. However, they have developed two powerful motivational tools of their own: affirmations and visualizations.
Affirmations are positive statements Simply repeat them to yourself as you go about your daily routine.

You don't even have to consciously "listen", just play it in the background. Your subconscious mind hears and retains the spoken affirmations and thus begins creating a more prosperous mindset. Your mind will especially pick out the personal issues and focus on them. Examples are:
•There is limitless supply and it is mine
•I release my need for financial insecurity
•I am financially secure
•I am surrounded by loving, giving people
•I release my need to feel needy
•I have everything I want or need
•I release my fear of wealth and wellness
•I am healthy and wealthy
•I allow myself to prosper
•I trust that I will create abundance
•I have more than I need in every area of my life
•I open myself to receive the abundance of The Universe
•I release my need for debt
•I am solvent
•I am safe and secure
•I enjoy a steady flow of positive energy
•I am loved, accepted, acknowledged and appreciated
Active, creative visualization is focused daydreaming. You create in your mind's eye a vision, a thought, and that thought has energy. As with dreams, your mind seems to work best with pictures. As such, visualizations, coupled with affirmations, are powerful tools of creation. Below is sample visualization:
Simple Candle Spell
You will need one green candle, a candle holder and a lighter. If you really want to be in sync with natural energies, do this visualization during the waxing moon i.e. during the two weeks when the Moon is increasing in light, from New to Full.

Close your eyes and breathe slowly, deeply and rhythmically until you feel completely relaxed. Imagine yourself surrounded by white light, enclosed in a bright bubble of energy or otherwise protected from harm. If it makes you more comfortable call upon God/dess, your guardian angel, spirit guide, or patron saint to be with you in this work.

Begin to visualize money flowing into your life. You don't have to imagine how this is going to happen. In your mind's eye see dollar bills or silver dollars or whatever signifies money to you being blown towards you from above and from all directions. What does it feel like to have this money, to have the ability to pay all your bills or the freedom to buy what you most want? Try to both mentally picture this as clearly as you can and feel it emotionally. Now pick up the candle and hold it tightly in your hands until you feel your pulse throbbing beneath your fingers. Your energy and the prosperous energies of the Universe symbolized by the green candle are merging together. You are becoming a prosperity magnet!

Affirm your desire (to yourself or out loud) For example: "Money streams continuously into my life." It's also wise to add a line like "with harm towards none." Continue visualizing and chanting as you place the candle in the holder and light it. Cup your hands around the flameHealth Fitness Articles, feeling it's warmth and energy. Put the candle in a safe place and let it burn down naturally.
