Keep on the Sunny Side of Life
An affirmation is saying “yes” to life. In doing so, it’s important to identify what you want, not what you don’t. Most people live in the wasteland of what they do not have or want; life seems bleak because they see a lack, a shortage of what they need or desire. The Law of Attraction does not understand “no,” and so if you were to say, “I do not want to be poor” the Law of Attraction would hear, “I do want to be poor.” Poor is the focus of that statement, and so it would bring you more experiences of being poor. Not what you would intend, is it?
Because of this, you want to always phrase your affirmation in the positive. “I want to have an abundant lifestyle with plenty of money in the bank” is a better way of stating it. An even better way is to eliminate the “I want” part in the front; instead, state your desire or goal as if it is already here, already real and part of your everyday experience: “I am enjoying an abundant lifestyle with plenty of money in the bank.” Can you feel the difference within you as you say those two affirmations?
“Every thought you think and every word you say is an affirmation. Your thoughts and words are declarations of who you think you are and how you perceive the world to be.”
