Affirmations are an interesting phenomenon. Some people say they work wonders, other feel they don’t work at all. Anyone who has consciously been working with manifestation for a period of time is likely to have an opinion.
Energetically, people will get different results from affirmations because words are only one part of the manifestation equation. Manifestation comes about as a result of one’s overall energy… that includes thoughts, words, actions, and feelings. All of these things make up one’s frequency. And frequency is what attracts.
So, if you are saying some words that are not in alignment with your thoughts, actions and/or feelings, there is a chance they may not have much power. Basically, if you do not really believe, act, and feel with what you are saying, the words won’t have the oomph you are desiring.
Now, some people use affirmations fully understanding that and recommend you just sort of “fake it til you make it”. i.e. just keep saying it until you convince yourself. I’m not sure if that works or not. Because, I don’t honestly have the patience for it. It’s not fun or interesting to continue repeat something I don’t really feel.
This morning, however, I hit on what I felt was perhaps the “granddaddy” of affirmations… “I am a powerful creator.” BECAUSE I have been learning and using manifestation consciously for so long, I really do believe that. So, this may or may not work for anyone. But for those of us who have this as a core belief, do you see the magic?
Just reminding ourselves of this shifts the vibration. “Oh, hey… wtf am I worrying about? I AM a powerful creator.”
I love that it shifted me into feeling empowered and also made me feel more inspired to act on all I am creating.
I AM a powerful creator.
