People say to me ‘Oh I don’t use affirmations!’ Or ‘I don’t think affirmations work!’ Or ‘Do you think affirmations work?’
Ok, the problem is that this is so obvious and so simple that it is hard to get absorbed by our minds. If we are not predominantly present or in a near constant state of ‘no-mind,’ then we are already using affirmations.
That’s just about everybody then… So when someone says they don’t use affirmations, well they must be either a Zen master or unconscious, and a Zen master uses them as well! So to say you don’t use them is like stating to the world I am unconscious to the fact that I am using affirmations.
Then there’s the I don’t think affirmations work crowd… Well these guys have all they have in their life because of the affirmations they have running in their minds.
Affirmations are just like adverts, they are you advertising to you. You can do this consciously as I do, or you can do it unconsciously like virtually everyone on the planet does. And if you think affirmations don’t work then consider if you think advertising works or not… So to say affirmations don’t work is basically saying, I don’t think advertising works… somewhat unconscious there!
So then it is obvious they work and that we all use them. Affirmations are your constant stream of thoughts, they are adverts… so all you have to do is design the adverts you wish to have running in your mind.
My favorite affirmation is
“I love my life“
I give it plenty of ‘airtime’
What’s yours and do you give it enough air time now you know how important it is?
I cover the full power of affirmations in my book Using A Bug Free Mind. And in the book Creating A Bug Free Mind I cover the process of removing all of the bad affirmations (adverts) you currently have running.
Go air a good advert to yourself!
