As you repeat something, it will flow down to your subconscious and it will be re-affirming that message again and again.
In gr.10, before I heard of any law of attraction/affirmations, I had to learn all of Shakespeare's speech 'All the world's a stage'.... I didn't
only have to memorize each word, I had to remember how it was written exactly in the book, then recite it on paper.
There were 30 lines in total... The day before the test, I sat down and started writing the first paragraph over and over. Not repeating it in my
head, just writing it constantly. I think after 5 times, I then started again, but this time, I wrote the first paragraph followed by the 2nd... etc.
By the time I was near the end, I had the thing down cold.
I got 29/30 because I missed a comma somewhere...
So yes, repeating ANYTHING will stick in your mind longer than you realize.
That is why it's so hard for people to change their way of thinking. After years of thinking in a certain color, the subconscious wants to keep
going back to the previous way, unless you keep re-affirming the new color.
