I. VAK to the Future: This is a tool I use in Energy Balancing and Transformation called PSYCH-K. www.psych-k.com This is a fabulous way to hook in affirmations at a subconscious level. Many times what is going on consciously and subconsciously are two entirely different games! VAK helps the subconscious mind process what you are gearing towards consciously.
Let’s say you affirm you want more FUN in life. Your subconscious needs sensory concepts to understand what that means. So we use VAK to give the subconscious mind a Picture, feeling, and sound to what FUN means to you.
So for your “COME AS YOU WILL BE…IN 2013” creation, ask yourself some questions. You can combine this with the non-dominant exercise if you wish. Both of these exercises build communication and new neuro-pathways in the brain. VAK stands for VISUAL, AUDITORY, KINESTETIC. This is from a technique called NLP, Neuro-linguistic programming.
What will I look like in 2013?
What will I be wearing as my future self?
What do I picture me doing?
What do you image you will be seeing around you?
Where will you live?
What is the look on your face, eyes ,etc?
What will other people be seeing me doing?
Who will be in my circle of friends and acquaintances?
What will my family be seeing me being, doing, having?
Use words that are visually stimulating: I imagine myself_______, I see my family noticing___________, When I look in the mirror I _____________, I will be showing people _________________, Others catch a glimpse of my success by_________________
What will you be saying in 2013?
What will others be saying to you?
What sounds are you hearing around you in your environment?
What do you want to hear from others?
What are you telling yourself?
How will you sound different in your story?
Use words that are auditory in nature: I hear you loud and clear when you say_________, I am telling myself____________, I hear myself accepting _______________, I overheard the crowd mention_______________, I get calls saying_______________, I call others to tell them___________________
KINESTHETIC: (These are feeling creations)
What does it feel like being this future self?
What do other people tell you they are feeling for you?
What sensations are you experiencing?
Where do you feel this in your body?
Have you experienced this feeling before?
Use words that are kinesthetic in nature: I feel so __________________, My friends and family feel so _______________about my achievements, This is what I am experiencing and I love it___________________ I am helping others feel more______________, Others are sharing their feeling of _____________with me too.
Gathering up all the information from your VAK exercise, what word or phrase could you use to describe this future you? Where do you feel that in your body? How big is it? If it could be a color, what color? Texture? What does it weigh? Have you experienced this feeling before? When, where, etc?
Returning to our example about FUN, I mentioned above. Your subconscious needs a sensory idea of the goal (fun) in order to know when you are being, doing, having (FUN). So you want to identify what that feels, looks, and sounds like to you.
*note: PSYCH K is great format for surrogate work for pets, loved ones, and the Future You!
