PROCEDURES FOR IMPLEMENTING
THE NEW SELF CONVERSATIONS
SETTING UP THE INITIAL AFFIRMATIONS
Go to the listing of your major negative affirmations and statements. (For Barbara: Barbara’s Top 10 Tunes on The Site. Click on the links to go to the issues.)
Follow through from those to any related piece. (Enter the issue into the search engine to find related pieces.)
general main page for “I am powerless”, a page that applies to anyone.
Copy and paste any affirmations onto a Word document.
Save the word documents in your computer files under
SelfDev/Psych/Affirmations or, if you wish under SelfDev/Psych/Issues and
then under the issue. (See Organization main page on The Site and follow
instructions under "Organizing One’s Computer Files".)
Put all of these sheets into a notebook behind a tab or into a file.
Look at the affirmations lists you compile and decide any rewording or upgrades you think would help.
SETTING UP A REFERENCE STRUCTURE
All of these require a place to reference them. That place would be a section of your Reminders Notebook, which is being assembled over time. (Caution: Do not use this notebook for anything but the more frequently referred to items. Keep the other items in subject folders or files.)
You would set them behind a tab labeled “Affirmations” (though you can break this section into smaller sections if you wish). If there are multiple pages of different types of affirmations, you would list them on a sheet of paper in the front of the section in the order they are in the notebook; you can number them for easier reference or have them in alphabetical order if you wish.
SET UP A STRUCTURED TIME TO READ THE AFFIRMATIONS
Daily, at least, though twice a day is better, read the affirmations in the area you want to focus on or your Key Affirmations Page (you would supplement the latter by going to the key areas of affirmations, such as self worth, power, loneliness, etc., doing each area for at least a week).
