Answer: They say that the eyes are the mirror to the soul. When you’re looking into your own eyes in a mirror while you’re saying an affirmation, you’re looking into your soul and putting a lot more energy into the statement.
You don’t have to tell God that you’re desiring anything, because God knows your desires before you do, and has already given it to you. You are simply affirming what is true on a spiritual level.
When you say an affirmation, you’re using it to change your mind and accept your desire. It’s a way of raising your consciousness to realize that what you desire is already yours and that you deserve it.
