One Man's Affirmation is Another Man's Denial
By Thomas Lomax, Jr.
When I began my quest for abundance by using the power of my mind, I came across many different types of affirmations. One of them was put together by motivational speaker Anthony Robbins. He claims the following affirmation, which he called an incantation, helped him to become a millionaire in less than a year:
Also, my research had taught me that you should begin to see some kind of indication that an affirmation is working within 7-10 days. If nothing's happening, it could be that you've chosen the wrong affirmation. That seemed to be what my intuition was telling me was true here. So, I decided to break it down and see what it was I was really saying.
First, here's what Tony Robbins probably heard in his subconscious:
- The words you say must resonate, on some level, with what you already believe, or can easily come to believe. You have to find a way to state your goals and desires so as to create very little, if any, disagreement with ideas you hold to be true. This, needless to say, is quite an art.
- Your beliefs need to be changed so as to be compatible with your new goals. This, ironically, is one of the reasons people take up affirmations. They want to use them to re-program themselves. Other options are hypnosis or some form of therapy (talk, energy, or body-centered).
So, have patience and practice wording your affirmations in ways that will bring you want you want, and, at the same time, not raise any argument from your ever vigilant subconscious mind.
Thomas Lomax has been studying and using affirmations for the past 21 years. He's studied the teachings of African, Tibetan, Chinese and Indian spiritual systems; European and American esoteric Brotherhoods; and the disciplines of NLP, EFT, REBT and a host of other acronyms. Just two years ago he discovered some really powerful information and finally learned how to have almost 100% success with affirmations. These methods make it very much easier to achieve what Thomas has described in the article above: to be completely congruent with one's affirmations at a Subconscious level.
