But instead of feeding you the theory of affirmations creation (like make them positive and make them in the present moment, etc…) I will do my best to show you the foundation of affirmations and why they work for some and does not work for others.
Affirmations are an important tool in any personal development and manifestation work toolbox. There are many wonderful books and teachings where affirmations are used as a main approach to manifest desires, accomplish goals, and achieve more healthier states of the body. Affirmations usually works pretty good to supplement dedicated meditation practices or when used as a regular daily mantra (with some cautions).
I been introduced to my first steps with affirmations via books by Shakti Gawain and Joseph Murphy (“The Power of Your Subconscious Mind”). Books of Joseph Murphy are fun to read as they present many examples of manifested intentions based almost exclusively on affirmations people used.
Yet, in my mastering the law of attraction article – I haven’t describe a single technique that is based on affirmations.
Why is that?
Large part of above article is dedicated to introduction of the concept of “State” or “Desired State”. The work of entering the desired emotional state should be the last step in any successful Law of Attraction work. Once you manage to make progress in shifting your emotions toward desired positive outcome – the task is to maintain this state as consistently as possible.
In the absence of (or at least with reduced) resistance – feeling yourself in the desired state as if your desire already achieved will cause significant progress in material manifestation of desire. Specifics of manifested intention will match closely the inner emotional energy of your most dominant emotional state.
