Affirm your aspiration by repeating it silently to yourself in rhythm with your movement in rhythm with your breath.
The wording of your affirmation is important. Consider that when you use The Method you are consciously reprogramming yourself, using words that you choose for the aspirational goal that you choose. Your word choice makes a difference.
It’s important to formulate the wording for your aspiration in a positive manner. Focus on the present and the future, not the past. Keep it positive. Avoid negatives.
When programming a computer, the formatting of the computer instruction is important. Think of The Method as a way to purposefully reprogram your brain/mind. Dr. John Lilly, the famous dolphin researcher, considered our brain/mind to be a biocomputer. He published a book that arose from research he had done for the Navy: Programming and Meta-Programming in the Human Biocomputer. Be aware that the words you use to program yourself will seep into your unconsciousness. The way you arrange these programming words can make a difference.
Use verbs that indicate you are in a process of becoming, improving, succeeding, or achieving a better future. Choose a specific goal related to your long term aspiration that fits how you see a better future for yourself and those you care about.
For basic formatting of your beginning affirmations, you may use this sentence stem: “I am verb-ing...” or “We are verb-ing…”, such as, “I am running easily within my breath, ” or “We are effectively getting the vote out for XYZ.” The use of -ing action words emphasizes the process of moving toward a better future.
When you begin using The Method it may be easier to formulate your goal or aspiration so that you can repeat it silently to yourself in one complete breathing cycle. Later, as you strengthen your ability to focus and keep your affirmation in mind while you move, you can expand the wording to include more than one breathing cycle.
Allow your specific wording to intuitively shift as changes occur to you when you are actively using The Method. Check how the revisions fit the direction and specifics of your aspirational hopes and wishes.. Sometimes our brain/mind/consciousness can suggest improvements in the wording. Be open to this happening and be willing to adjust your wording until you feel you have it just right: simple, clear, focused and it fits the direction you want to go.
If you are having difficulty in choosing and formulating your aspiration, consider what is one of the more negative aspects of conditions in your life that you would like to change. Maybe you have motivation to improve it but aren’t sure how to proceed. Or you have tried to improve in the past but weren’t successful.
What would it look like, be like or feel like if that negative thing or condition was not holding you back. What would your life be like if it wasn’t bothering you any more? What would you be doing or feeling or thinking differently?
Consider the negative problem, barrier or hurdle and formulate an aspirational goal that dissolves it. Formulate an intention that helps dissolve the barriers or obstacles so that you can have a more positive experience of life.
It’s best when you are beginning use of The Method to choose a goal that you believe is or could be achievable.
