Why hasn’t the affirmation “I win the lottery” worked?
Question: Why has the affirmation, “I always win the lottery,” not worked for me?
Answer: There are a couple of things that happen with the mind and affirmations. First, you have to have the consciousness of what you’re affirming. That’s actually what the affirmation is for. To build your consciousness. By affirming that you “always win the lottery,” you’re setting up a situation that the subconscious couldn’t possibly fulfill. No one “always” does anything.
The other problem is that you’re telling the Universe how your wealth has to come to you. By doing so, you’re actually limiting the Universe. It’s not up to you to figure out how your prosperity will manifest. I’m not saying not to work, or do what you know to do to improve your finances, because the Universe can only do for us what It can do through us. Remember that it all comes from the Universe through the channels you create.
I would suggest that you affirm an amount that you actually feel comfortable with. Many people have a glass ceiling they’ve created for how much they can accept. As the amount you affirm gets to be more believable, and you see some change, then increase it. What you’re doing is building your consciousness to accept more. And don’t limit where it has to come from. Your subconscious and the Universe know much more than you do about how it can happen.
As long as you’re doing things in the physical world to create channels, your subconscious and the Universe will direct more prosperity your way. It may not come through the channels you’ve worked on. The only thing that’s important is that you’ve been moving in a direction to build your acceptance. Don’t worry about how it’s going to happen.
So, two things to do: Affirm an amount you want that you can believe in, and trust the Universe to bring it to you.
