Answer: There are a couple of things to do to increase the power of affirmations that have been used. The first would be to actually affirm the affirmation. It sounds odd, but you would affirm that the original affirmations are actually in Universal Mind and your creative mind, that they’re already working even if you don’t know how it’s happening or how it could manifest.
Affirming that you know that it’s being done, or affirming that you trust your subconscious to take what you’ve impressed on it and bring it into manifestation. What you’re doing is increasing your belief in the affirmation actually working. And you can also just affirm that the affirmations are increasing in power each time you say them.
Another thing you can do is to back off of stating affirmations for specific things. Instead, use affirmations that increase your general acceptance of all things good. Although specific affirmations bring specific results, sometimes we get too tense about the specifics, and try to will them into being. This just blocks the ability of the subconscious to manifest. All the energy is going into the willpower and trying to control the manifestation.
By backing away, and just beginning to affirm a greater acceptance of all good, it begins to broaden the scope of your consciousness and opens it to a greater range of good. Something like: “All the good of the Universe is already mine. I’m allowing myself to experience more of all the good that there is in all areas of my life.”
Also, whenever you think of the issue you’re affirming, remind yourself that your affirmation has already taken care of it. This gives the affirmation more power. Remember that the more you wonder when, why or how it’ll be done, that siphons energy away from manifesting the affirmation. It’s not easy, but each time you use an affirmation, have the attitude that it is now done, even if you can’t see any evidence of it at that time.
