AFFORMATIONS - THOUGHTS VS. QUESTIONS
It is widely believed that if you think and/or say something positive, with enough consistency and conviction, that it will come true. If so, then why does it only work some of the time?
In reading Afformations by Noah St. John I learned that when you make a statement that isn’t yet factual such as “I have so much money!” a little nagging voice replies “Um, no you don’t!” and the truth trumps your intention.
Try asking yourself a question you don’t yet know the answer to. What happens? You search for the answer, and if you don’t find it, you often can’t stop thinking about it till you do. That’s because your mind, brain and subconscious are like a super computer designed to search memory banks and surroundings for the answers.
Sometimes we ask ourself negative questions like “Why am I so broke?” “Why am I alone? Why does my job suck?”. Your brain says: “I don’t know why? Let’s find all the ways to answer that question” and your subconscious creates negative experiences and feelings to continue to support your negative question.
Nooow, when you ask your self a positive question like “Why am I so Loved?” Or “Why is it so easy for me to make money?” Your brain searches again, only this time it doesn’t have the answer and now turns it’s focus to try and validate what you’ve asked.
The results are that you begin attracting opportunities, people and new ideas to support the positive question. It becomes easier to make choices that support your goal, because your internal systems want nothing more than to get that question answered!
Advice: Start asking questions. Replace your statements and negative questions with positive questions like: Why am I so healthy? Why is life so easy? Why is it so easy to make friends? Adding the word ‘easy’ instructs your subconscious to make the process to your goal an easy one.
