Sample text

Use the master Switchword TOGETHER with BLUFF and CHANGE, such as TOGETHER-BLUFF or TOGETHER-CHANGE – this gets you into a state of ‘self-togetherness’ when fear is making you feel separate from yourself. Add BE for peace of mind: TOGETHER-BLUFF-BE, TOGETHER-CHANGE-BE. When you begin to feel the fear ebb away, try chanting SHINE to lift your mood. You might also like to experiment with the flower-remedy Switchwords for fear (see here): ASPEN, CHERRY PLUM, MIMULUS, RED CHESTNUT and ROCK ROSE. Try reciting them alone, or with TOGETHER or TOGETHER-DIVINE.

If we accept the loose definition that a mantra is a melodic pattern of words repeated to bring about a change in consciousness, reciting a mantra aims to create an altered reality. This is an important concept in Switchwording: the idea that spoken words can be transformational, creating an effect outside of the self, is fundamental to the belief that they will work and manifest a chosen desire. Once spoken and repeated as a mantra, a Switchword gains its own momentum. ’ In other words, the mantra manifests your intention, and it comes back to you as an experience.

We need to deliver this motivation in a different language, using words that don’t always make sense to the conscious mind. As Colette’s experience below shows (which may resonate with many of you wanting to break unhealthy habits), without the subconscious mind’s agreement with your plans your efforts will be half-hearted, and being stuck in a cycle of self-conflict leads to frustration and even despair. It also means your efforts will be short-lived – after all, it’s really uncomfortable to be in conflict with yourself for any length of time, so you give up on the diet, the new venture or that new job, which brings temporary relief from these feelings, but doesn’t ultimately move you towards your goal.
