This is a post from 2009 that I am reposting. Specifically during the month of May 2013 as we are at an auspicious time to set intentions. The blueprint is being drawn.
Abundance does not have to only relate to money. It can relate to an abundance of happiness, relationship, success, or simply clarity. Affirmations or mantras are a great way to set an intention. Repeat them as often as possible. Repeat prior to meditation and then let it go.
An affirmation is a set of positive words or phrases repeated out loud, to yourself, or just set out in visual sight. The more the affirmation is repeated consecutively and over time, the more the subconscious is being programmed to believe it. For example, if you repeat an affirmation such as, “I attract abundance in all areas of my life,” your subconscious mind will take it as truth (as it has no filter) and the law of attraction will begin to bring you abundance.
In Ancient Hindu practices, an affirmation, called a Mantra in Sanskrit, is repeated 108 times at least daily. This practice can be extremely powerful because of its ancient roots having been performed for thousands of years. Prayer, or mala, beads are often used to count the mantra 108 times.
The language of Sanskrit was based more on energy than meaning so that each word carries a specific vibration or energy with it making even more powerful as it vibrates from and out of the body. Again, the Law of Attraction is always at work bringing to you that which you project out. So, for this reason, I have included a few Sanskrit mantras.
My Income is Increasing.
Note: You always want each and every word of an affirmation to be positive. For example, “I will be rid of debt” only reinforces “debt”.
Om Shrim Maha Lakshmiyei Swaha (pron. OM SHREEM MAH-HA LAKSH-MEE-YEI SHAH-HA).
This is the quintessential Sanskrit mantra for abundance! Shrim is the seed sound for abundance along with the goddess Lakshmi. Swaha is the divine feminine which is representative of receiving.
I am Open and Receptive to New Avenues of Income.
This affirmation allows us to open our minds from becoming too tunnel-visioned. There are so many opportunites awaiting us if we just step outside our patterned ways of thinking.
Everything I Touch is a Success.
Perfect for someone who is insecure about being self-employed or if you just want to boost sales!
Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha (pron. OM GUM GUH-NUH-PUH-TUH-YEI NAHM-AH-HA).
This mantra is based around Ganesh, who in Vedic texts is known as the remover of obstacles. Thus, this is a powerful mantra in removing obstacles that may be preventing you from bringing in abundance.
There is Plenty for Everyone, Including Me.
Note: The subconscious takes everything as truth. So, even if you don’t believe an affirmation it is still working. Given enough time, you will start to believe it.
This is the mother of all affirmations. Use to bring in more clarity.
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
Nothing brings more to you than gratitude. Gratitude is the most powerful emotion in the Law of Attraction.
