Those of you who have read my blogs will know that I did an Affirmations challenge for 30days.
It was successful in many ways and I was able to understand the inner workings of Affirmations
from my own research and experience.
Since that little experiment I have come across a man by the name of Noah St John who is the man behind Afformations.
Let me explain what Afformations are firstly and then I will delve into the experiment I am going to start as of the 1st of July.
Afformations along the same lines as Affirmations in as much as the repetition part. How they differ is truly easier than one may think.
Affirmations can be hard to come up with because you have to ensure that your beliefs hold true to what you are repeating. The old example of repeating “I am rich I am rich I am rich” and hearing your mind tell you that your lying to yourself is one way gauge that this statement is not something you can believe.
Afformations work with the way the mind itself is programmed. Afformations are a form of affirmations but used in a question form. Not just any question, but through questions that force us to go into the most basic natural instinct that we have, finding solutions.
Solutions are what our mind does naturally, its not based on having the right beliefs or values, its all a matter of working with what already works.
So, with that said, lets delve a little into what the inventor and creator of the Afformation says with regards to using Afformations in our daily lives and the steps that will help us get the most of them.
In his book “The Great Little Book of Affirmations” Noah St John discusses the 4 crucial steps to take in order for us to heighten the outcomes of our Afformations.
Step 1 – Decide on what you want
This is the first step for anything. In order for you to succeed at something you have to be clear on where you are heading. Lack of direction is one of the biggest cause of frustration in our lives.
Step 2 – Form your goal into a question that assumes that what you want is already yours.
This is the main difference in Affirmations and Afformations. Its all about ensure you are asking the right questions. You work this part by emotion. When you feel the joy and fulfilment of what you want already, you get go of the anxiety attached to wanting it. Anxiety and fear of not getting what you want is the biggest block to getting it.
Step 3 – Give Yourself To the Question
The point of these questions is not to find the answers. I know that sounds a little weird, but How To questions are not what we are looking for. Its about changing your mindset not about answering the question.
Your giving your mind permission to believe that there is a way.
Step 4 – Take New Actions Based On Your New Assumptions About Life
If something hasn't worked before, try something new. If you have been doing certain things a certain way and they haven't been working for you yet and you haven't been able to get what you want, then try a different action plan.
So now to the experiment Part.
From June the 1st 2010 I am going to be using Afformations instead of my usual Affirmations.
Each morning I am going to focus on my Afformation and put my labels around the house. Its the same process that I used for my Affirmations the only change will be the form that they are taking.
Here is a list of some of the Afformations I am going to use.
“Why am I able to make $5000 consistently every month”
“Why does healthy food taste better than unhealthy food”
“Why are my relationships so joyful, loving and accepting”
“Why do I enjoy housework so much”
I will come back to this blog every couple of days and update how this is working for me in my every day life. Ill also give some tips that I pick up along the way.
This all fits in with my Law of Attraction 100day reality challenge and I cant wait to get started.
Ill also be back on normal internet speed which means that it wont take me a week to upload or download everything I need.
May your life be filled with passion!
