Affirmations Update

This is crossposted to both my journal and lifeaffirmation

First, a question: do you think we should broaden the membership of this group and how would we do that?

I think I'm going to post something to our pool party list.

Second, an update on my progress...

I've written some more of the things we've been thinking about. Will be posting the complete (atricle? paper? whatever...) when I get farther on it. It's based on the two pieces already posted to my journal.

I've observed that after the first week, the rate of change appeared to slow to almost nothing for several days. And then it picked up again, not as fast as during the first week, but still fast.

I did go to a party that's been triggering for me in the past, had a little too much to drink, and got quite triggered again. My inner critic started screeching "see! it doesn't work!". The day after the party was also somewhat difficult, but by the day after that, I'd returned to the new place. Perhaps even better, because I weathered it, I learned that I could weather it and return to this place. I think that helped me feel like it's working even better.

I am very clear that the key is inundating the brain with this feedback ongoingly as much as possible. Because we are trying to change habitual thinking, we have to make it easier to reach for the new words instead of the old ones. The ad agencies know that the way to influence habitual buying patterns is through inundation. I feel like I'm harnessing the same idea and using it "for good".

I sill need to incorporate airynd's affirmations into my own. And rewrite them all with their "target me" in mind (as discussed in http://akienm.livejournal.com/205620.html. And finally record the whole lot.


And boy is it a lot!
