In working with affirmations, we are working with the power of our subconscious minds. We are seeking an agreement between our conscious and subconscious selves. We strive to be positive, and when the negatives emerge, we must uproot them like weeds in our garden.
It takes a certain amount of daring to try working with affirmations. We must be willing to stand firm in the face of our subconscious’s bluster and bile.
Listen to the ugly objections as they roar to the surface of your mind. Ignore their vicious content, and again insist on the positive. Affirmations work like an ejector razor blade. We insert the positive as we eject the negative. As we write our affirmations, our negative thoughts lose the power to tyrannize our thinking and our behavior.
“You will be a failure, until you impress the subconscious with the conviction you are a success. This is done by making an affirmation which ‘clicks.’”
