When you know how to use positive affirmations properly it can really change the way you see the world.
Did you know quantum physics proves that every thought in your mind has a vibrational charge attached to it? Thoughts have specific frequencies based on how much emotional energy is tied to them and if that energy is positive or negative. The subconscious mind is like a broadcast antenna. It is programmed to put out frequencies that will then attract like frequencies to you.
Many people go through life not using the subconscious mind to its full potential, but they are broadcasting none the less. If they allow the mainstream media and negativity that is so prevalent in our culture to program their subconscious minds, then they will attract more of that negativity to themselves without ever having thought about it.
We do have the power to place good, positive thoughts into our subconscious mind so that it will attract good things back to us. One way to program the subconscious mind is by using affirmations.
Using a short, positive, and repetitive thought to help focus your mind on the success that you want in your life is called an affirmation. Affirmations are a very useful tool in attracting good things in your life. There are, however, specific points that can make your affirmations a more powerful force in your life. I call them the 3 P’s to powerful affirmations.
- The affirmation needs to be Positive.
- It needs to be in the Present tense.
- It needs to be very Precise.
The first key to having a powerful affirmation is to make it positive. So it can’t be something like, “I wish this guy would get fired so I could have his job.” The mind will focus on the negative and that word “fired.” The one then being fired might be you. It would be much better to say, “I am in a very satisfying position just like that person.” This way, your subconscious mind is focused on having a very satisfying position and that is what you are attracting.
The more positive the affirmation is- the better. It is also important to attach as much positive emotion to the affirmation as you repeat it. Think as though what you are saying is your reality and experience how that makes you feel. Feel these positive emotions rise up in your soul as you repeat the words over and over. Now you are broadcasting a positive message and your antenna is growing more powerful.
The second key is to make the affirmation in the present tense. It does no good to say “I want to make a lot of money,” or “I want to be a great artist.” When you say “I want,” you are broadcasting that you are in a state of want. Being in a state of want is not a good place to be. You need to broadcast in a state of “have.” So you might say “I am making a lot of money,” or “I am a great artist.”
The third key to a great affirmation is to be precise. The more detailed your affirmation the better your broadcast will be heard. Think of a radio station. You need to have your radio tuned to a very specific number such as 97.9 or 105.7 to pick up a broadcast. If you are on 97.7 or 105.9 you will not hear the message you are looking for.
So put as much detail into your affirmation as possible. You might use the above example to say “I am making 100,000 dollars in the next 12 months doing the work that I love.” Or “I am creating art by painting the most beautiful landscapes in my area.”
So now you know how to use positive affirmations to change your life for the better, and the 3 P’s to powerful affirmations. Now go create your own affirmations and repeat them every morning when you wake up. Try to repeat them aloud as much as possible. Then make a list and keep them with you so that you remind yourself to repeat them throughout the day. Soon you will have a subconscious mind that is programmed to do exactly what it should be doing- attracting everything you love into your life.
