How did you feel when you read this affirmation? Inspired and excited? Hopeful? Skeptical? Confused?
I ask that question because everything leaves clues as to what is really going inside your mind. It gives us insight into your paradigm (or subconscious programming).
You see, if you felt good after reading the affirmation, that means the statement is in harmony with your paradigm and there’s a good chance the affirmation will work for you. You do have to read it more than once for it to make a difference though. I encourage you to repeat it (out loud) every day this month because affirmations have helped thousands of people make significant changes in their lives.
However, if you felt skeptical, doubtful or negative in any way when you read it, well, we’re playing a different game and have a different set of rules to follow. Any negativity means the affirmation is not aligned with your subconscious programming, and therefore, it’s not going to work without some extra effort on your part.
ANY affirmation that you resist or reject is useless unless you change your paradigm.
That’s because your paradigm determines how you feel about a thought or idea, and your feelings cause your behaviour which creates the results in your life.
However, when you become AWARE of your paradigm and then decide to change it, then you open the door for new thoughts/ideas (like affirmations) to take root in your subconscious.
For example, if your paradigm is that life happens to you and you have little control over the events and circumstances that occur, you won’t automatically believe that there are new opportunities waiting for you to take advantage of them. In fact, the first time you read it, you will actually feel a little sad, because it seems like it’s only true for other people – not you.
But … you will feel less resistance and thus be more willing to accept the new thought through awareness and proper action. By that I mean consciously impressing the affirmation upon the subconscious over and over until it becomes fixed in the mind.
In other words, this encouraging thought will lead to empowering feelings, actions, and finally the new result that you want. In this case, your best life.
Just imagine how your entire life will change as you begin to dream new dreams fuelled by new inspirations and encouraged by new opportunities that you begin to see around you.
The change will be huge!
And because you’ve changed your paradigm, it will be PERMANENT.
Affirmations always work when you get your intellectual (conscious) mind working in harmony with your emotional (subconscious) mind. Then, and only then, will your actions create the results you want.
