Question: Must I repeat one affirmation, say for ten minutes morning and night till I receive a manifestation – say for 3 months – or can I use various affirmations during the day?
Answer: Great question. It’s better to focus on one area at a time when you’re using affirmations. If you are working on significantly improving your health, prosperity, relationships, etc., it overloads the subconscious mind. Imagine you’re given a list of major things to accomplish in a short amount of time. If you’re like most people, you probably would like to throw up your hands and walk away. That’s what the subconscious does if it has too many things to change.
However, you can focus on one area, then during the day, use an affirmation that deals with generalized improvement – in all areas. Something as simple as Emile Coue’s (a pioneer in hypnosis) “Every day in every way, I’m getting better and better,” or even a statement that’s more complex. In that case, it will actually help the subconscious by having you uplifting your overall consciousness of good.
The subconscious acts on the tendency of your thinking. So, if during the day, you’re “tending” to think of improvement in all areas, thinking positively, then that will give the subconscious more “juice.”
