Some people say that affirmations don’t work, but the truth is, they just don’t know how to use them correctly.
Every thought you think and every word you speak is an affirmation. You’re using affirmations in every moment—whether you know it or not. Unfortunately, much of what you are affirming is negative… and that doesn’t create good experiences for you.
But you can create positive affirmations and use them to either help eliminate something from your life or help create something new in your life.
But how do you do that? How do you come up with affirmations that allow you to consciously create your life in a way that supports and pleases you?
You see, words have a very strong effect on the subconscious mind so you must choose them wisely, and make the statement relatively short and simple. Because, although the subconscious mind is extremely powerful, it perceives things in a very straightforward way.
Also, read your affirmation with as much belief and emotion as you can. Emotion is extremely powerful because it raises your vibrational state and makes the attraction process much faster and more efficient. And, of course, you should repeat it often to prime your mind for maximum success.
Now, to help you create powerful affirmations that can put you on a totally new path in life, let’s take a close look at one of Bob’s affirmations that has proven to be VERY effective:
“I am so happy and grateful now that money is coming to me in increasing amounts, through multiple sources, on a continuous basis.”
Let’s break down each part of the affirmation to see why it works so well:
First, “I am so happy and grateful now that…”
This phrase is a powerful introduction to any good affirmation or goal because it immediately puts you into the positive vibration that is necessary to attract the good that you want to show up in your life. A happy and grateful mind amplifies your ability to manifest your desires. As you read the affirmation, feel happy NOW that you are already in possession of your desire.
Second, “Money comes to me…”
This is your request or the demand you are placing on the universe. Notice that it is a very clear command that eliminates confusion in the subconscious mind. When you make your request, don’t worry about how it’s going to come to you. Just accept and expect that the money is coming to you in some way, shape or form. Let the universe handle the details.
Next, “In increasing quantities, through multiple sources…”
These words blow away any limits you may have consciously or unconsciously put on the amount of money coming to you. They give your mind permission to dream really big, thereby allowing your manifestation to materialize in the fullest. You do not have to set a specific target amount of money. The important thing is to feel joyful feelings after you say or think the words. Remember, you don’t need to know how the money will come, only that it will.
And finally… “On a continuous basis.”
This ending phrase impresses into the subconscious mind that you want this to be a permanent condition—that you want and deserve an abundant life where you always have plenty of money.
Go over this process a few times until you really understand the principles. Then start to create positive affirmations that work wonders in your life.
