You cannot be a successful affiliate without a niche. If you are having troubles pinning down a good niche for yourself, perhaps you need to spend some time looking inside yourself, and accessing your intuition! These suggestions work equally well when you need inspiration with your content writing, as well as for general well-being. I use these tips myself, frequently.

Success is a State of Mind
PIN IT!! Success is a State of Mind

Our intuition is there to guide us, but many of us learned long ago not to trust our own judgment. Whether it was well meaning adults telling us “no” when we were children, or teachers who did not understand our “thinking outside the box” kind of thinking, or people who ignored our input because of our age, gender, or lack of experience in the field, we may have inadvertently learned to squash our inner voice.

Each of us has gifts and talents to give back to the world. It is human nature to give, but we do not always give to others what they are wanting from us. This is where we need to tap into our intuition. We will be successful with our niche if we can write articles that resonate that we do believe in what we are writing. And we will believe it if we can feel it, inside ourselves. There are people out there who are waiting for what we have to offer. Waiting patiently…

Finding our niche can be as simple as getting out into nature.

Indeed. Sitting in the park, or going for a walk in an area with trees, shrubs, flowers is a way to get back in touch with who we really are; the person that we are at our core.

If you can, find a place where you are free to walk (if able) in the grass with your shoes and socks off. Or find a tree and observe it, how the branches veer off, the pattern of the leaves, or the feel of the bark. Enjoy the sounds of wind through leaves or the smells of the first bits of green to sprout in spring. The sound of waves on the shore. The sight of stars at night. If there is a labyrinth in your town, check it out, as they are thought to help with meditation.

Start the good habit of spending time outside of your home, even if it is only 5 minutes to start. Observe the world. Be in the moment. Gain access to that inner voice that knows you better than you know yourself, and it will show you the way. 

Clear out those negative voices

Something that I found a couple of years ago is Brain Sync with Kelly Howell. These are subliminal mp3’s or cds on various subjects. Subliminal recordings bypass your conscious mind and can help reprogram your mind for success. The ones that I listen to as I drift off to sleep at night are using Theta waves. 

Theta waves are the waves that allow you to change your reality. If you have negative programming running around in your head, you can change it with Theta programs. Theta is a state of deep relaxation, and the state you are trying to achieve with meditation, which also helps you change your reality.

It is thought that Theta is the state of mind that you need to be in to walk on hot coals! Theta is also involved in daydreaming, which is a process of creation. You may have heard it said that if you can conceive it, you can achieve it. They are talking about Theta. Theta boosts intuition!

I believe in the power of the Brain Sync recordings and I have been using my new favorites for a few months regularly to change some of my own limiting beliefs. I cycle through the ones that I use and listen to them in a loop on my phone at night while I sleep. My favorites are “Winning”, “Positive Thinking” and “Manifest Prosperity”.

I highly recommend that you check Brain Sync out here. Since I have been using them I have been able to pinpoint my niches. My finances have improved because I am attracting more positive experiences into my life. And I am more hopeful and positive about life, which is a plus for the people in my life! And I KNOW that I will be a success!

Tap away the negative!

And now I am going to share my final recommendation for the process of improving your connection to your intuition, which is tapping, otherwise known as EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique.

My favorite practitioner of EFT is Brad Yates. Brad has over 600 videos on YouTube, on all manner of subjects to help you clear away negative thinking. Brad is personable and very entertaining at what he does. And the fact that he cares about people shines through in his videos.

Brad Yates tapping to clear negative energy!

How tapping works is that you say something negative while tapping on meridian points. These are the same kind of points that are used in acupuncture, but without using needles. First you choose a statement like “I am really angry at my boss for chewing me out in front of everyone” and assess how bad you feel  (ie emotional) about that statement on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being really, negatively emotional.

Then, you use the first two fingers on your hand to tap around your head saying the negative statement, until you have cleared some of it. Then you switch to saying positive statements, and do a couple of rounds of that.

Now, say the original statement (“I am really angry at my boss…”) again and see if you feel less emotional about it. Chances are, your emotions lessened somewhat.

If the number is still high, just tap another round. It looks silly, but wow, it like turning on a tap (no pun!) and just letting negativity go down the drain. I believe that much of our negativity comes from not being able to deal with negative situations right away, for whatever reason. Then it gets pushed down inside of us, waiting to be fixed.

Click here to see the various programs that Brad has to help you in your goals to be successful, as well as tapping (no pun again!) into your intuition. And be sure to check out the free videos on his website.

When we are feeling good and positive about life, our intuition shines through! Success really is a state of mind, so be sure that your mind is not cluttered with thoughts that will  hold you back from achieving your dreams!

I hope this article has been helpful to you. Feel free to leave a comment, or email me if you would like any more information about Tap with Brad or Brain Sync.

I believe in both of these products and I am using them in my life daily, or I would not promote them.

Happy Blogging!

    1. Hello MsMayo and thank you for your comment!

      I knew that I had to change my way of thinking if I wanted to change my life. I highly recommend subliminal recordings for those “deep” negative feelings that you are not even sure how to change, and tapping to change the ones you can. Sounds like the Serenity prayer, and I guess it is in a way. And walking in the grass, that really makes me feel connected to the world!

      Cheers,
      Irma 🙂

  2. Hi Irma,

    Thanks for the great information. We’re really good at coming up with all the “reasons under the sun” why we can’t do something. But isn’t it amazing how one can simply shift their perspective and see the world through a different set of lens. When we can adopt an “I can” attitude then the ideas start to flow. Thanks for sharing 🙂

      I agree totally. I now have a mindset that is ideal for working on my website! Two months ago I never knew this whole process existed.
