If everyone who used positive affirmations got what they wanted, we’d all have happiness, the loves of our lives, success, great health, wealth, fulfilling relationships, and peace of mind… but we don’t. That’s largely because most people who use this process for creating a better life are missing the piece of the affirmation puzzle that makes the whole thing work.
Positive affirmations address something in our lives that we want to adjust or replace with something better: change an overweight body into a slim and fit one, or replace an unhealthy daily habit like smoking with a healthy daily habit of drinking more water. The reason we feel better when speaking these positive thoughts as verbal statements is because the positive energy of good thoughts and pictures in our mind raises our vibrational frequency and causes chemical changes in our body that tell us we’re happy. (Sort of like smiling during your morning shower when you got up in a crabby mood. You truly begin to feel happier because your body is programmed to feel good when you smile).
There are numerous reasons why you may not have achieved lasting change from using positive affirmations. Here, I’ll address the major reasons and give you a step-by-step process to have greater success with them.
There is a missing piece to most instructions for affirmations. Without this piece to the puzzle, most people who use them for lasting change wind up feeling frustrated that they failed. If you are one of the millions of people who have used this process without the results you were looking for, you’re not alone.
The missing piece? Emotion. Emotion (feelings) is the most powerful energy for creation — both positive and negative for things you want and things you don’t want. You can speak verbal affirmations until you’re blue in the face, but if you’re unable to feel what it’s like to have what you want, you won’t get it. You may be asking, “How will I know how it feels if I don’t have it yet?” Great question! Use your continue reading at YourTango.
