Affirmation is one of the easiest mind-power techniques to use and it can bring about amazingly far-reaching results. The payoff for using affirmations is phenomenal when compared to the little effort required to do them. Using affirmations is a simple and effective way for you to attract money using mind power.
“Affirmation” is the title of chapter 10 in my book, How to Attract Money Using Mind Power. Here’s the quote I use to open that chapter:
“Not only do affirmations impress the subconscious mind thus producing action in accordance with the Will, but they project outwards from the mind into space, attract forces and help from other sources and bring them to minister and to bless.”
—Henry Thomas Hamblin, Dynamic Thought, 1921
Affirmations can be used to bring about all sorts of circumstances, but we’re most concerned here with the fact that affirmations can be used to help you bring about the financial circumstances you want to create for yourself.
An affirmation can be made up of a single word, a phrase or one or more sentences. Affirmations are intended to be used repeatedly for the specific purpose of influencing the subconscious mind with the thoughts, feelings and images having to do with the end results one is trying to bring about.
Through the use of affirmations you will call your subconscious mind into action. To help yourself best govern the actions of your subconscious mind, you’ll want to be careful not to hinder its operation with unnecessary concepts and images of how your desired money outcomes are obtained. You want to mostly dwell on and think about the concepts and images of what those desired outcomes are.
And you want to word your affirmations as if things you want to bring about are true now. The subconscious mind operates in terms of end results and present time. Thus, you want to word your affirmations in such ways as to state that the way you want things to be is the way they are now with no reference to how they got that way.
So, you would not want to affirm something like, “I am going to be earning eighty thousand dollars per year.” If your desire is to be earning eighty thousand dollars per year you would want to affirm something like, “I earn eighty-thousand dollars per year.” That affirmation is positive, end-result oriented and stated in the present tense.
With an affirmation like that your subconscious mind will come to believe you already are earning the income you want to be earning. And with no stated or implied restrictions on how you came to be earning that money, your subconscious mind and the universe at large are free to bring your increased income level to you in an infinite number of ways.
You can simply think your affirmations in your mind, and that is the way you will likely do most of them. You can state your affirmations verbally, and that will likely be the next most frequent way you will use. And you can write your affirmations down on paper, and that will no doubt be the least frequent way you will do your affirmations. As far as how many affirmations you can do in a “set”, you can do one, several, or even dozens or more.
When you are just waking in the morning and before you fall asleep at night are ideal times to do affirmations. You are generally more relaxed at these times, as compared to the rest of your day, and at these times there is a more open connection between your conscious mind and your subconscious mind.
Beyond that, you can also do affirmations while you are involved in other activities. You can do them while you walk, while you clean house and while you exercise and prepare meals. You can do affirmations in cars and on trains, planes and ships. I think you get the idea.
All by itself, affirmation is an effective way to attract money. You can, though, use affirmation in conjunction with other mind-power techniques. For instance, you can use related affirmations while you visualize and you can compose affirmations which affirm that your money goals are your money reality. This is where the art of mind power comes in. It becomes a very personal and personalized process over time.
And always strive to do your affirmations in an excited, expectant, confident and joyful frame of mind to the best of your ability at any given time. If you will do all of that, your success will be assured.
Here’s another quote I use in my chapter on affirmation:
“With affirmations, your potential is unlimited.”
—Brian Tracy, Maximum Achievement, 1993
Here are some examples of money/finance-related affirmations: “I earn (dollar figure) per (week/month/year).” “I have (dollar figure) in the bank/in assets.” “I own a six-bedroom house.” “I own my home free and clear.” “I always make good financial decisions.”
You can use your imagination and come up with affirmations to suit your individual goals and needs. People sometimes ask how many affirmations they should be using at any given time. It’s not so much an issue of how many you use, though, as it is an issue of how often you use a given affirmation each day.
You’ll want to do some of your affirmations daily, and there will be some you want to do more than others on a given day. That will depend on your priorities and the time sensitivity of the issues you are addressing with your affirmations. You may choose to do some affirmations weekly, say on Sunday morning as an example, or just whenever you think of it. Again, this is a highly personal endeavor. Find out what works best for you and do that. If and when what works best for you changes, change what you’re doing.
The bottom line is that if you want to attract more money into your life then you want to compose and use money/finance-related affirmations.
