Do you use affirmations?
How are they workin for you?
Has anything shifted, changed, gotten better?
If so, sweet. Keep on doing them.
But if you are like me, and affirmations have been kinda “meh” for you, then listen up.
If you are lost, let me explain what an affirmation is. An affirmation is a positive statement that is your goal, ie “I am rich”, “I am healthy”, “I am living the life of my dreams”.
You get the idea.
The thing about affirmations is that you are trying to affirm and change your unconscious program by repeating over and over what you want.
Now there is absolutely nothing wrong with this, so don’t get your knickers in twist if you love affirmations.
Like I said before, if they are working for you, keep doing them.
The problem with affirmations in my view is that your mind does not believe it (yet). It may take a long time of repeating the affirmations, writing them down, posting them everywhere for your mind to finally begin to shift.
I would like to offer another suggestion for those of us that don’t really resonate with affirmations all that much.
Are you ready?
May I introduce to you “Afformations”. I discovered afformations around 8 months ago, and I love them so much.
What the heck is an Afformation you ask?
An Afformation is an empowering question that you ask yourself.
You see, your mind is always looking for answers. Your mind likes to solve problems.
You are asking yourself questions all the time, but the questions you are asking are probably disempowering.
Questions like, “Why am I overweight? Why am I broke? Why can’t I attract the perfect relationship?”
These are disempowering and keep your mind finding reasons to support these questions. Which means you just keep on affirming lack, not having and unhappiness.
Now I did not create Afformations. Noah St. John did. Gotta give him props for these.
So how do you begin asking empowering questions so that you can begin bringing in more wealth, health and love?
Change your internal questions so your mind can begin automatically helping you.
Wouldn't that be nice to have your mind actually helping you??
Let’s take one of the above limiting, disempowering questions and turn it into an Afformation.
Let’s take, “Why am I overweight?” All you need to do is begin asking yourself, “Why is it so easy for me to lose weight (get fit, get stronger, etc)?”
Doesn’t that feel better. Your mind instead of instantly poo-poo-ing the questions, begins to search for answers and then like magic, your awareness opens up for new opportunities for change.
You still have to take new actions, but your mind is instantly on board and ready to work with you instead of looking for reasons why an affirmation won’t work.
Don’t take my word for it though. Try this for yourself.
Check out the book Afformations by Noah St. John to learn more (and no I am not getting paid to say that). This book gives lots of information and examples to pick from, or you can make up your own.
