“Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality.” ~ Edgar Allan Poe
Recently, a friend asked me to give her my honest opinion as to whether I believe an affirmation could work in a specific situation that she is experiencing.
She said that she was feeling challenged by the desire to register for an event versus the reality of the funds that are currently in her bank account.
She went on to say that she was receiving encouragement from other people to register for the event and then say affirmations that the money she needs will manifest.
Since she knows that I do use affirmations in my life, she asked if I agreed with the advice she was receiving.
I emphatically told her ‘NO!’
I explained that there was a time in my life when I was in the exact same situation — 3x! It took me 3x to finally get the lesson.
I chose to take a series of trainings….despite the fact that I did not have funds to pay for the trainings, which each cost 1000s of dollars. The organizers of the trainings kept encouraging me to register any way and then ‘stay positive’ and ‘expect miracles to occur’. I was encouraged to put the registration fees on my credit card or beg and borrow the money from friends and then figure out later how to pay them back as a result of the information I would learn from the training.
So, I stayed positive — and I said affirmations — and I borrowed the money and my credit card reached the limit and I participated in the trainings (which did not provide the information of how to manifest money).
I enjoyed the trainings, yet nothing had changed in my ability to manifest money. Unless I count the fact that I had mastered how to beg and borrow money from my friends…which did not feel good to me.
Yet, one important change did occur and if you click here to read on, I will share it with you: http://www.chi-to-be.com/why-affirmations-dont-work
