Sparks of Insight“I focus on the good in my life. What I give my attention to expands. Therefore, I experience greater good manifesting.”

When you give your attention and power to fearing some conclusion, then you’re attracting that into your life. The same is true when you direct your energy to what it is that you desire to manifest. Your focus simply gives your subconscious mind the direction, “This is what I want more of,” even if it’s what you don’t want. The subconscious cannot make that distinction. It’s just giving you what it thinks you desire.

Sparks of Insight“Everything and everybody that come into your life are there for one of two purposes: either to heal you or to be healed by you of some wrong attitude of mind, body or affairs.” – Catherine Ponder

I’ve known some people who wondered why they attracted certain difficult people into their lives. Even after they’d examined all the issues, nothing seemed to resonate as to what they needed to learn. However, they noticed that the other person seemed to react strongly (and sometimes negatively) to things they said or did that were helpful or benign. Sometimes the situation isn’t about you. It’s about the other person. Your lesson may be to not take things personally and remember that you’re a teacher as well as a student.

Can I get $1 million by affirming?

Question about affirmationsQuestion: Will I get results if I affirm twenty times a day that I have one million dollars?

Answer: It is highly unlikely that will bring that amount to you. You may receive a bit more, but that depends on your consciousness of abundance. Your consciousness is what you’re expanding when you use affirmations.

Affirmations aren’t a magic wand. They help to build your consciousness, just like you build a business, to accept more of what you’re affirming. And that depends on whether your daily thoughts are in alignment with the affirmation.

If the tendency of your thoughts is the opposite of the affirmation, the mind acts on the overall tendency. During the day, you have to keep your awareness focused on increased prosperity, and not talking and thinking “I can’t afford that,” “I don’t have the money,” etc. You need to be thinking, “I’m becoming more prosperous,” and ideas of that nature.

Sparks of Insight“I expect wonderful things to happen today. My attitude of expectancy opens doors for me. It releases the Power of the Universe that creates good.”

Expecting the best gives the subconscious direction to find and create the good that’s already available in potential from the Universe. Tuning into it is like turning the channel of your television. The channel you’re seeking is always broadcasting, you just need to find its signal.

Sparks of InsightTry changing the pronoun of your affirmation from “I” to “You” or “Your Name.” You respond differently when someone else encourages you. You feel believed in, validated, appreciated. In doing so, you actually become your own coach. The third person, “Your Name,” helps by being from some neutral party. It’s more objective and detached, therefore connects with the mind on a different level.

Still not believing my affirmations

Question about affirmationsQuestion: Is this normal to be listening to and repeating affirmations for a year and still not completely believe them?

Answer: It’s fairly normal for it to take some time to turn things around. It’s different with everybody. Some get involved with a group of people of like mind, or a great teacher, and are able to make a significant change quickly. That’s not very common, though.

Remember, you’ve been heading in one direction for most, if not all, your life, with a pattern of thinking. I liken it to sailing in a sailboat. You’re headed in one direction, and now want to go in the opposite direction. You can’t just flip the sails around or you’ll capsize. You have to move them incrementally. It takes time.

And your subconscious acts on the overall quality of your thoughts. If you’ve been thinking negatively for a long period, it takes a while, and a lot of belief, to change that. You can use affirmations to increase your belief, which might be the best thing to focus on for a while. That there is good in the world, you deserve it, and work on a smaller goal at first. As you succeed at that, you can proceed to larger goals.

Your emotional belief and trust in the Universe and your subconscious mind is what powers your affirmations. You/we all receive what we expect, in our deepest being, that we’re going to get. If we truly believe that nothing will change, no matter what affirmations we say, guess what? It doesn’t. The subconscious manifests the average of what we think about.

You’re learning a new skill, and like all new abilities, it takes time, perseverance and practice to get better at it.

“A maSparks of Insightn can not be comfortable without his own approval.” – Mark Twain

So many clients tell me that they don’t feel good enough. When you don’t feel like you measure up to some ephemeral standard, you can’t feel good about yourself. Self-doubt, self-criticism, and self-sabotage undermine any feeling of well-being. Whenever you notice you’re putting yourself down, find something in yourself to praise, even if it’s the way your fingernails grow. Choose something within yourself to approve of, for the Universe approves of you.
