Hey members, try this one out.
Have you ever used affirmations before? Repeating the same sentence again and again, hundreds of times a day, only to have doubts creep into your mind
and your subconscious rejecting your affirmation every time you say it?
Conscious mind: "I am very confident in public situations"
Subconscious mind: "No you idiot, remember that last time when everyone was making fun of you and you couldn't defend yourself? Of course you're
Conscious mind: "Every day I'm becoming more intelligent"
Subconscious mind: "Of course not you stupid loser. You're just of average intelligence, and that's where you'll stay"
Affirmations that conflict with your subconscious belief don't work because of this. Only affirmations that do not conflict will be sent to your
subconscious. And with the mindset of the majority of people in this society we all know what kind of affirmations those are.
"I'll never get that job I like"
"I will always be stuck here"
"People around me are sheep and they will always be asleep"
"I can only get more income by getting promotions"
"I will never lose those 10 pounds"
"I always have to work really hard to get what I want"
"If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is"
"The financial elite are crooks; only the rich get richer"
"If he's trying to sell something, then he's not credible"
Every time you think such thoughts, your subconscious will enforce it because there is no conflict. Those negative affirmations often work, and we
experience those things as a result of that. That's the way most of us were brought up.
Now that we've seen that regular affirmations don't work, I'll show you another way of phrasing them that should work.
Change the affirmation into a question form. It's that easy.
Instead of: "Every day I'm becoming more intelligent" you can say, "why am I becoming more intelligent every day?"
You can also do it with negative affirmations, which you would have to rephrase two times. First to make them positive, then to turn them into a
Instead of: "My life sucks!" you will come up with "my life is great!" and then with "Why is my life so great?" or "Why is my life getting
better and better?" or "What is the reason that my life is getting better and better?" or "How am I improving my life?" Any question form is
As you repeat these question form affirmations you will see how much better you will feel while you're asking those questions. That's a sign that it
works and that your subconscious is accepting it already.
The reason why your subconscious accepts it is because it automatically tries to find the answer for any question you ask yourself. That's one of the
functions of the subconscious. Which means that in order to look for that answer, it has to assume what you're asking about is already a fact (even
if it really isn't).
So going through that example of negative affirmations I mentioned before, they would look like this.
"Why do I always get jobs that I like?"
"Why is my life dynamic and exciting?"
"How can I open other people's minds?" "Or why are all people starting to think more for themselves?"
"Why do I always have multiple sources of income?"
"Why do I always have my ideal weight?"
"Why am I always getting what I want by working smart?"
"Why do extremely good stuff happen all the time to me?" Or "Why am I always so lucky?"
"Why am I profiting from all of my actions, and helping others profit as well?"
"Why do we deserve to get paid if we create something of value?"
Which leaves me to a closing statement:
It's better to stop asking negative questions immediately. Your subconscious will accept it as fact and bring more of it to you. This is one of the
main ways of how reality creation/ the law of attraction works.
