Mind Power and Affirmations
I've had a lot of questions about how the power of the
mind works and how to properly use affirmations to direct
your mind and subconscious mind in order to get the
most power out of your mind while using positive daily
affirmations. I've studied and worked with affirmations
for quite some time and I continue to coach students
on how to use affirmations while re-training their mind
and subconscious mind to create the life they want so
that they achieve their goals.
those of you not familiar with affirmations - think
of them as simple statements that you repeat to yourself
to the point where they penetrate your subconscious
mind. Your subconscoius then acts on the affirmations
by creating situations, circumstances and events that
mirror those affirmations or the statements you've been

should focus on what you want - not what you don't want. In
short - affirmations are thoughts that you repeat over and
over again until they become beliefs to the point where the
subconscious acts on them. Later in this article I'll talk
about how your subconscoius mind reacts to affirmations being
played on tapes.
are not new - in fact they have been around for centuries
- and I can't think of a single self improvement course or
book that doesn't touch on the subject in one form or another.
Some people will refer to affirmations and incantations, or
a daily mantra, or verbal rituals - what ever they want to
call them - these statements are intended to have the same
effect - they're supposed to penetrate the subconscious mind
and compel you to take action so that you achieve your goals.
going to talk about the power of the subconscious and how
affirmations are a great way to send your subconscious new
directions. I'll also go over why we need to incorporate affirmatons
into our daily lives and why you should recite them instead
of playing them back in a tape recorder - it all comes down
to using the mind as a new tool to instruct the subconscious
mind to create the life you want.
with Affirmations is a great way to creating change and I
can't understand why so many people don't use them. Simply
put - affirmations are very effective - when used properly
and when you say the correct affirmations. The power of an
affirmations is not only in their ability to create situations
and circumstances for you to achieve your goals - but they
also help you eliminate negative thinking - a process that
once accomplished will yield tremendous results. Essentially
you can give your subconscious a new blue print for success
if you work with the right affirmations on a regular basis.
clear up some misconceptions about affirmations before we
go any further. You cannot use affirmations to affect somebody
else's behavior - that is you cannot use affirmations to get
somebody else to do something. For example: you cannot say
an affirmation to make someone do something or make them behave
a certain way. You can't recite affirmations with the goal
of making someone love you. You cannot say an affirmation
to get somebody to do something that they do not want to do
- because you cannot control somebody else's subconscious
mind. You cannot say affirmations to control somebody else
- otherwise ruthless leaders all over the world would have
their cronies reciting affirmations to get people to behave
a certain way. It's just not that simple. You cannot say affirmations
to change something that has already happened or fix something
that is already broken - you cannot create affirmations to
change the past - but you can work with affirmations to create
a new future and when done correctly - you will be able to
do this at will.
work best when they are connected to you and your behavior
and your goals. The are most effective when you concetrate
and direct your affirmations so that you are the only one
responsible for the actions taken and the outcome projected.
What do I mean? Well, let's say you want to improve a relationship
with somebody and you want them to understand you better or
listen to you when you speak. Based on what I said in the
previous paragraph - you can't say (person's name____) is
now listening to me or (Person's name____ understands me better).
Remember you can't change the way somebody behaves with an
affirmation. If you've been doing this and not getting results
- now you know why. You can only use affirmations to change
yourself when it comes to relationships.
of trying to get someone else to change - you should be focusing
on you and your actions. So in the above example you would
say something like I'm now finding ways to help __ understand
me better. I'm now saying the right things to help ___ listen
to me. I'm finding ways to convince __ to listen to me and
I'm now convincing __ to listen to me. Two things have happened
here - one is you've taken the affirmation and sent the message
to your subconscious mind so that you do the right things
to improve the situation. Next - you've also instructed your
subconscious mind to provide you with the corresponding action
to help you obtain the outcome you want. What follows is that
you start doing things to create the outcome you want. This
is very different than saying ___ is now listening to me.
In that case you are doing nothing and trying to get somebody
else to do something while you keep taking the same actions
- you'll never get the results you want. So - the affirmation
should reflect what you can do and what actions you can take
to create the outcome you want. Some people - actually a lot
of people want to make more money. Simply saying I'm making
more money is a good start - but you can also create the affirmation
that reflects action - thus saying: I know what to do to make
more money and I'm now doing the right things to make more
should be short and simple - and reflect what you want to
happen and what you can do to make that situation happen.
They don't have to be long and complicated because if they
are - you'll never remember them - and that's one of the main
reasons why people forget to say them.
create affirmations - focus on what you want - not on what
you don't want. You should only be focusing on the outcome
that you want. You may have to think about it a little bit
- but you'll understand once you start the process.
- try to say your affirmations in your head to yourself. I
know a lot of people like to record affirmations and then
play the tape when they're driving or going to bed. This does
help - but what happens when you stop playing the tape? Chances
are you'll go back to your old patterns of thinking and erase
all the positive work those tapes created. Why? Because you
didn't train your mind to focus on what you want and create
corresponding affirmations - you didn't train your mind to
get used to saying affirmations. When you recite the affirmation
in your head - you train your mind to stay positive, think
positive and more importantly it stops being negative. You
also get used to saying them.
times it may seem like the affirmations are boring or that
you're just saying them and they're not having any impact.
This is a crossing point. You're going from initial excitement
that comes with saying the new affirmations to having them
penetrate your subconscious - this is when you need to continue
saying them the most - because your subconscious is ready
to act on them. Track your results - see if there have been
improvements in certain areas of your life for which you've
been saying affirmations. Even small improvements are positive
you need to believe the affirmations? No you don't need to
believe the affirmations. In fact some would argue that it's
probably better not to believe the affirmations because when
they manifest it's just further evidence to your mind that
they do work. Keep your affirmations fresh and have fun with
are powerful tools that can help you create the life you want.
But you have to use them properly and you have to continue
working with them regularly - to the point where they become
such a habit that you want to say them all of the time. Hey
- it's better than keeping all that junk inside your head
- you know the stuff you keep thinking about but doesn't really
help you accomplish anything - and in many cases may actually
push you backwards.
over the years I've had a few people say to me: "Affirmations
don't work - they help for a little bit but after a while
they just don't work." Funny thing is that when I ask
them why they don't work after a while they always say they
don't know. Then I ask them if they stopped saying them after
a while - and most of the time the answer is yes - they did
stop saying them. In other cases I try to take a look at the
affirmations and see if they are correct - or if they're not
in line with what I've been talking about. Hey if you say
the wrong thing in the wrong way all of the time you're not
going to get the results you want. It's like working out the
wrong way - it just doesn't help.
understand that some affirmations take longer to have an impact.
It really depends on where you are and what you want to accomplish.
For example: if you're unemployed and want to be a millionaire
or be making a large six figure income with your own office
- it's going to take some time. You have to get a job and
get into the right place to start making the big money and
earn the millions you want. It's not going to happen overnight.
So the first step is to focus on getting work that will put
you on a track to make that kind of money. It will happen
- but it really depends on where you are and what you want
to accomplish. Also remember nothing is going to fall from
the sky - you have to do the work, and be open to new possibilities.

- but they have to be worded correctly and they have to be
