If you have a difficult time attracting abundance and success, then it’s definitely, positively and absolutely time to consider prosperity affirmations. They are an easy tool to help you in your struggle with bad thought habits – and that’s all they are is HABITS. You weren’t born thinking life is tough and you can change your lousy thought patterns if you want to do so.
Abundance affirmations work by providing your subconscious mind with new messages. Often times this implies taking out the old, disabling messages and replacing them with new, enabling ones and so, over time, creating a prosperity consciousness. The Law Of Abundance works equally for us all and there is no escaping the laws of prosperity – or the laws of poverty.
Even so, the way your wealth affirmations are worded will effect how much they do for you.
If I told you to say the affirmation "I am a millionaire," how much do you believe that would work? Would it make you a millionaire overnight? Would money begin to fall from the sky and land right in front of you?
Highly unlikely. But why is this? Basically, it is because you know it’s not true. If you attempt to convince your subconscious that you are a millionaire, then your mind will be conflicted with it’s own beliefs. Your subconscious will not enjoy the conflict or change – so your life won’t change either!
If your money affirmations are going to work in creating abundance, you are going to have to word them so that your subconscious mind isn’t resistant to the idea. In other words, you have to make your abundance and prosperity affirmations credible. Credible to you, that is. You are the only one who matters in this instance!
Try comparing the affirmation from before with this one: "I am transforming into a more successful person each day"
That make you feel better, doesn’t it? Your subconscious won’t fight the thought because you can think that it is happening, even if it isn’t happening yet.
Another way to give your prosperity affirmations a boost is to word them so you have more of the responsibility. In other words, you could state, "I am open to getting the chance to earn money fast and easy," instead of saying, "I am transforming into a more successful person each day." Saying it this way will help you feel like you are in control of your circumstances. Instead of wanting money to fall from the sky, you can send messages to your mind that you are able to control the amount of money you earn by being open to new chances.
The time is takes for affirmations to "take root" can vary. Mostly it has to do with:
How much opposition is being offered by your current beliefs …
The amount of effort you put into changing those beliefs …
If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you then you will need to spend a lot of time and energy to convince your mind to concentrate on success.
You will find more good things coming into your life the more effort and time you spend on concentrating on those good thoughts and beliefs, so your time will not be wasted.
Here is a wonderful affirmation to assist you on the road to success.
"My emotions and thoughts easily bring abundance to me."
There’s no doubt that prosperity affirmations are a powerful way to ensure manifesting abundance in your life and they can change a poverty consciousness to a prosperity consciousness. The important point, though, is that though wealth affirmations are simple, they’re not easy. It takes persistence and determination to undo years of garbage thinking. Wallace Wattles, author of the wonderful ‘Science Of Getting Rich’, affirms that it’s the "hardest work in the world’ and insists that most people won’t change their thinking. Will you? Personally, I’m working on it, each and every day of my life. We can never have too much prosperity consciousness!
