The Unlucky Fried Kitten Affirmation-Station
Welcome to the Unlucky Fried Kitten Affirmation-Station...a place for you to relax and to reflect and to hopefully add great feelings to your life. Sit down....pour yourself a cup of tea...and have a think about what you would like to get out of life.
In this hub you'll find a variety of affirmations....which UFK have set to a musical backing. They are not songs...and should not be judged as songs. It's not about the musical structure or the timbre of the vocal....it's about what YOU can take from it and it's about what YOU want to put into it. I'll hand you over to some 'frequently asked questions'
- WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT? It's a set of listening posts for you to hitch your horse to in times of weakness or despair or in times when you just want to bolster the skills or talents that you already have
- WHY DID YOU MAKE THIS? Well...I made a few tapes for myself once upon a time when I found myself having a few personal difficulties...as I am a great believer in the validity of affirmations, auto-suggestions and mantras. I have decided that I'd like to share some of these new ones I created...and some more new ones that I am going to create soon.
- YOU'VE OVERCOME ALL THESE PROBLEMS YOURSELF, THEN? Ha ha...no...I wouldn't want you to think that all of these weaknesses and inadequacies are pertinent to me. Wow...that would make me an overweight, chain-smoking, feeble-minded, desperately unlucky-in-love, procrastinating, poverty-stricken lazy sod.....amongst other things ;-)
- DO AFFIRMATIONS REALLY WORK? My answer to that is...how can they NOT work? We all harbour negative AND positive thoughts...instinctively. We harbour way more negative thoughts than positive thoughts...and using affirmations irrefutably helps to redress the balance. All the while you are driving these positive thoughts into your mind you are pushing out the bad thoughts...the doubts and the fears. After a while you'll begin to make great decisions and make positive choices...without even thinking about it. Instead of worrying about what you can't do...and fretting over your supposed inferiority...you'll be instinctively chasing new opportunities and you'll have no time for doubt.
- HOW DO I USE THE 'SONGS' THEN? The best way to use these affirmation 'songs' is to just listen to them whenever you can. Play the songs on a regular basis....drill the statements into your mind...play the songs while you are doing your housework or when there's nothing decent on the telly. Play the songs when you are cooking the dinner...when you are toiling over the washing...or when you just want to sit back and relax. Use headphones if you can. Just don't play them whilst you are driving or operating machinery because...although this is not hypnosis you can go into a trance of involvement.
- IS THAT IT THEN? Yep....just play the songs. Read the descriptions...and play the songs. Good luck. There's no specific order. Although the 'songs' are all aimed at the building-up of positivity in the mind...they all have slightly different areas of intention...so you might want to just pick a few that apply personally to you. It's up to you.
(SONGS ARE ON THEIR WAY....TO BE ADDED CONTINUALLY)
Firstly I'll put this song on here for you to play. It's called Absolute Action and it's aim is to inspire action...obviously. I made this in 2002 because I felt I was so lazy and just not doing anything worthwhile....and I wanted to spur myself on to make an album. It helped me to decide to gather some UFK songs together and release the album 'Unlucky Fried Kitten present loserville.com'
I've split the song in two....basically cos it is 40 minutes long and too long for a youtube upload...so you'll get Absolute Action(part one) first.
Don't worry if you can't make out some of the lines in the background....your subconscious mind will know what they are....and I PROMISE I am not saying 'go buy some unlucky fried kitten albums' lol
At this point I'd like to point out that the music is deliberately rather fractured and fragmented because this helps to distract you and make more use of the subliminals. True that ;-)
Here's part two of the action song. Play it...and set some goals. Write out a list of the jobs that you have been neglecting to do. Have a brainstorm in your own head to come up with some new ideas....things that you could do to make certain things better in your life. Remember that old cliche...no job too small...no job too large. Just keep adding to the list...it doesn't matter if all of the jobs don't get done...as long as some of them do get done...and they will. You'll start by consciously working through your job-list...and you'll feel such a sense of achievement as you strike those jobs off the list as they get done. Eventually you'll be getting a lot of the jobs done subconsciously. It is important to list all the small jobs because those are your building-blocks.....or your acorns...or whatever you want to call them. The more jobs you are crossing off that job-list the better you feel and the more it spurs you on to tackle the bigger jobs.
ABSOLUTE ACTION (part two)
SET SOME GOALS
Don't just sit there....set some goals NOW!!!!!
Have some fun.. Be creative.
Here's an example of some of the jobs on my job-list....which is essentially a list of goals. You'll see that there are many small goals there....and...as I said earlier....you NEED the small goals.
- clear out car
- list mountain-bike on e-bay

So there you go...sorry to bore you with some of my job-list...but I wanted to emphasise once again how the small jobs are crucial. For example....I could have had 'list things on e-bay' as one job....but I feel it's important to break these things down. More gets done that way...more jobs being struck off. That was just a very small section of my job-list. I hope it helps.
Well....I dunno about you...but I'm just about ready for the next song :)
I FORGIVE YOU
This is a song devised for that 'letting go' scenario. Sometimes you get hurt when things go wrong in a relationship and the other person seems to have changed their mind about how they feel. It's a shame if you feel that you are the 'hurt party' in this situation and it quite often leads to bitterness and resentment....and it also makes you want to hang onto the chance of a reconciliation. You can try to sort things out...by all means...but when it becomes clear that the other person is NOT interested it's time to move on. There's the old saying that 'love conquers all' and that's all very nice...but only if the love is from both sides. You have to walk away and you have to forgive the other person for 'changing their mind' It's not their fault if that happened. Maybe you were reading it all wrong anyway??? If there IS a two-way love...well...if you begin to move on and give them their space the love will blossom again. If it doesn't...then it really wasn't meant to be. Forgive them for what you see as their 'crime' and move along. They'll respect you for this and you might win them back. If you keep hassling them they will soon despise you...and you'll stand NO chance of winning them back.
I Forgive You I Release You

I AIM FOR THE TARGET
So....I think we'll have another song about aiming for your targets....I'm kinda getting those ones out of the way early on. The other songs won't be as long as the first two Absolute Action songs and you can choose which ones you listen to anyway. I'm recording the songs as I go along....trying to keep the random approach....cos there's nothing as numb as certainty in life. I'll get the hang of the vocals by the time I'm on about the 52nd song....I promise ;-)
Also....don't forget....there's nothing wrong with having a lot of target affirmations....cos you can apply the target songs to anything you're trying to achieve/overcome. Your target might be to stop smoking....it might be to move on from a bad relationship...it might be to write a novel. Whatever....the target songs will apply.....though I'll be adding some more specific affirmation songs soon too.
I AIM FOR THE TARGET
USING TIME WISELY
Making a conscious effort to use your time wisely will reap rich reward....and making a sub-conscious effort to use your time wisely will enhance that. Soak up the subliminals within this song and you'll soon be making the best of your time without even realising it. You might still be watching television...no crime there...but you'll be keen to do other things simultaneously...ironing, cleaning, tidying-up, cleaning out the cupboards, re-organising that book-shelf, making notes, making plans etc.
Time is the most important currency we have in life and you have to spend it wisely. You wouldn't go out into the street and throw all your pound coins away and cast your £10 notes to the wind, would you? If you do...well...I think you might need a different kind of help.....but until that day can you come and chuck it all in my garden? Thank you :)
So...why would you throw this precious thing called TIME away?
USING TIME WISELY
More About Affirmations
Using affirmations is an excellent way to condition your mind and to direct your thinking to the ability to make great choices and to immerse yourself in some positive habits.It really develops your positivity well ...and the key here is REPETITION. The more you repeat your affirmations the easier they become to master and the quicker they will mutate into a habit. I have written my own list of affirmations...literally hundreds of them...I re-write them continuously and I fill up countless note-books with them. I find this works incredibly for me. You'll find your own 'incredible way' no doubt. Thinking up the affirmations becomes an interesting and exciting challenge in itself...and then writing them down helps to firmly implant them in your mind. Consequently...of course...you can go back and read them again and again in times when you feel you are slacking. It will be a very worthwhile and valuable challenge if you write your own affirmations...with themes that apply to your own goals, dreams and projects.
A Little About Empowering Questions
Using empowering questions is magical. Firstly you are asking yourself a conscious question for which you may consciously search out an answer. Secondly you are handing them over to your subconscious mind as you write them down....and your subconscious mind will then seek out the answers too. Thirdly...as with the affirmations...you will be left with a book packed with empowering questions which you can go back to and read time and time again. Add to that the fact that these empowering questions are written in your own handwriting and this re-inforces the fact that it is personal to you.
Using Af's and Eq's together
As you look through my empowering questions (Eq's) and my affirmations (Af's) you'll see that the basic generic ones...the short snappy ones...will sound almost familiar...by very nature of their brevity.
Af's like I Grow Stronger Every Day or I Am Very Confident Now
Eq's like How Can I Make This Better? or How Can I Make This Day Great? A lot of very similar Eq's have been used by many people and quoted by some of the greatest life-coaches I've had the pleasure to study.
I pay great tribute to the likes of the amazing Tony Robbins...the wonderful Edward de Bono...the inspirational Napoleon Hill...and countless other incredibly gifted characters within the field. (I'll put a suggest-list on here soon...of highly -recommended writers)
The majority of the longer Af's and Eq's are much less generic and definitely more personal to me. I find they work wonderfully for me...and if you make up your own Af's and Eq's they will be sure to work wonderfully for you. You'll see...as you look through my list...which ones are highly personal to me. Eq's like How Can I Get This Person Out Of My Head Now That I Know She Doesn't Care About Me? or What Do I Need To Do To Move On From This Situation? Yes....I was carrying a torch for someone who had once loved me...but she had changed her mind. I soon realised that you can't just 'create a love' that simply doesn't exist. It took me a long long time to move on...and it is really that one experience that prompted me to embark upon all of these projects of this nature. For months on end I was the unhappiest I had been in my life....but she had made it crystal clear that I was history (to her) so I had to admit defeat (or what I saw as defeat at the time) and make massive efforts to move on. For months I filled every waking moment with Af's and Eq's and mantras and auto-suggestions and the like. I used my i-pod to pump subliminals and hypnosis into my head throughout the night....every night. I filled dozens of note-books up...cover to cover...with my Af's and Eq's....and Temporal Taps (Temporal Tap section coming soon)
I managed to break away eventually...but it took a lot of hard work and it was very-time consuming...and I only persevered because she was so persistent in letting me know there was no future for us. If there had been a glimmer of hope I would have hung on...but there was nothing.
At first glance this might appear that I am laying my soul bare in relating all this...but I think it's important to be honest if I am to promote the fact that PERSEVERENCE and REPETITION are the key in such processes of release. Also...after researching the subject for myself I soon discovered that mending a broken heart ...or whatever you want to call it is one of the most emotional deals to undertake for many people. Comments from people on websites just leapt from the screen and bit my nose off. Their words revealed just how deeply these people had felt ...and these people were just like me. Most areas of self-improvement ..whilst still very heart-felt...didn't seem to hold the gravitas that a broken heart did. Yes...people wanted to be more confident...more happy...more successful etc...but the broken-hearted people seemed to want the desire to succeed much more. I could be wrong...this is my own opinion...of course...but it was true for me...and that's good enough for me.
One day I hit upon a little technique that truly worked for me. It probably sprang up as an answer to my own Eq's. I found a way for the Eq's and Af's to compliment eachother.
I decided to sit down and write out 250 Eq's....it was a personal challenge. I listed them on one side of a pair of open pages...and left the facing page blank...then I left the Eq's alone for two weeks. I then returned...and answered each of the 250 Eq's with a positive Af. I figured this would help me in more ways than one. The Eq's were effectively left to burn in my subconscious brazier for a fortnight...then I went back to stoke the embers with the Af's.
Believe me...this worked...I had found the breakthrough...and with the combined Eq's and Af's I had finally burned away the feelings that had been such a holding-point in my life. Finally...just to really ensure that these fires could not be re-ignited...I removed the lid of the brazier and poured in a mass of Temporal Tappings.(coming soon...as I said earlier)
This might seem like a lot of hard work...it was...it was sheer devotion to the cause...especially when I knew that some people were capable of clicking their fingers and moving on just like that...but not everyone can move on so swiftly. Not all people are the same with their emotions. It was hard work...very time-consuming...but when you consider the alternative...loving someone who doesn't love you for the rest of your life...the hard work is well worth it.
I used music too...instrumentals blasting through my headphones...me singing out my Af's in time to the music...making up little hooks and melodies. I turned it into a fun situation....I got some odd looks whilst sitting in traffic...it didn't matter. I was getting better. This was a war...and I was taking no prisoners.
To sum up....I'd suggest you have fun....make up your Af's and Eq's....be creative...set yourself a challenge...see how many A'fs and Eq's you can come up with.
You'll never run out of ideas....it gets more interesting as it goes along because your ideas get crazier...funnier...wilder....and that will always serve to distract you from the bad emotions you were feeling in the first place.
Have a read of my selection of Eq's and the accordant Af's....and then we'll meet up again for some Temporal Tapping
Take care x
Temporal Tap One
Here's the first temporal tapping song....and this one focuses on the 'moving on' principle...basically...getting over the person who has really let you down. I'll be using the music as a template for all future temporal tapping songs. You can, of course, use the song without tapping. Just listen to the words over and over and let them work their magic. Alternatively you can make up your own affirmations and recite them over and over with the music going on in the background. I'll upload the background music for you for that (coming soon)
