5 Ways To Make Affirmations Work For You!
In my last post I said that I would give you some suggestions on what you can do to help you to bypass the mental war that some of us have when we try to change our thought patterns by using affirmations.
Here are 5 ways I think may help to make using affirmations easier for you:
#1 Use Gratitude Statements
We've all heard the statement, "I'll believe it when I see it" well, we must do the opposite when we are expecting to manifest God's promises for us. Believing is seeing!
"3-Person Subconscious Truth-Verifier" concept. This concept tells you to state your affirmations in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd person all at once.
"Every day I take one step closer to achieving my ultimate goals"
"Every day you take one step closer to achieving your ultimate goals"
"Every day Yogi takes one step closer to achieving her ultimate goals"
Here's the reason this is helpful:
"One, when you state the affirmation in the 1st person, you are affirming something which you yourself know to be true.
Two, when you state the affirmation in the 2nd person, you are feeding that part of your mind which needs outside opinion to help form what you see yourself as. A part of us needs someone to verify our worth, to praise us, to confirm outside what we believe inside. This helps to fill that need.
Three, when you state the affirmation in the 3rd person, you are also still feeding that need mentioned above, but taken to another level. This time, it's as if we are eavesdropping on other people's opinions about us." -new-age-center.com
