What about affirmations and visualizations?What about affirmations and visualizations?

Just as the Law of Attraction and Ho’oponopono teach us, we are 100% responsible for our reality. How are we responsible? We are responsible for the thoughts that determine our destiny.
Our thoughts are very much controlled by our memories. Did you know that 90% of our memories come from our ancestors, and that we have been accumulating them for over eons of lifetimes? So, what we think we base our decisions on can sometimes have nothing to do with the thoughts of the moment.
And, did you know that you are aware of only 15 bits of information per second, while you actually have 11,000,000 bits of information per second you don’t even know about and are playing all the time? These bits are past memories you have been storing, and those are the ones that control your decisions, opinions, judgments, expectations, and fears, all of which hold you back from reaching your true potential and inner peace.
When we do affirmations and visualizations, we are manipulating the 15 bits of information we are aware of! Those 15 bits think they know what is right and perfect! In Ho’oponopono we learn to let go and let God. Ho’oponopono cleaning opens us up to the goodness of God’s universe and works with the 11,000,000 bits we are not aware of. When we let go and turn it over to Him, He can transmute for us and we don’t even need to know or understand how it works!
This is what Joe Vitale discovered when he found Ho’oponopono, and this is why he said “Ho’oponopono is beyond The Secret.” Affirmations are only us telling God what to do for us, as if we know better than God what is right and perfect for us. With Ho’oponopono and the cleaning, you are giving permission to God who knows better to bring you whatever is right and perfect.
So, let me ask you this, do we want to affirm to God that we know better than He does, or do we want to let go and give Him permission to bring us what is right and perfect?
Even an illness is a blessing in disguise. Many times a pain could be a way of letting go of memories, since our body is ALL memories! I love the pain or the sickness. I say I love you to it as a way of letting go and allowing God to do the healing. I am not going to do it for the pain to go or the illness to disappear. I am going to do it so I can be at peace even if I am sick.
You see, God might do something different each time you let go and say “Thank you” and “I love you” because God knows what is right and perfect for you at that moment. You just need to say it. That’s it. You need to give permission instead of thinking YOU are going to solve it!
Same applies with visualizations. God is the one creating when you use any of the Ho’oponopono tools. If you can see God’s work, if you can see God’s transmutation, good for you. But you are not the one doing it. Your job is just to say it, and then let God be the one to create. God is the one who will bring whatever is right and perfect, and He doesn’t need you giving Him directions of what colors to use, or how to do it, or what the results should be.
Again, affirmations and visualizations are our arrogant way of thinking with our 15 bits of information, then believing we know better than God, so He needs us to direct Him.
Rev. Michael Beckwith says affirmations are like kindergarten stuff. We wake-up, we play with them, and we realize we are that powerful. Now we graduate and we can be ourselves. That is our job, to be. When you are, you are in the flow, you are allowing the Universe to guide and protect you, and put you at the right place at the right time. Sounds familiar?
As I always tell you, you have to do what works for you. I do not have any doubt that affirmations and visualizations can work. We are that powerful. We create with our thoughts. But, isn’t it better and easier to think “thank you” or “I love you,” let go and give permission to God, who created us and knows us better than anybody else?
Well, I have practiced letting go and giving permission for many years now, and all I can tell you is that today, I have much more than I could have ever asked for. In all my dreams I could have never imagined the life I live now.
Do you want to set yourself free? Then give permission to God who knows better!
