A lot of people invest a proportion of their time to repeating affirmations daily and yet none of the statements in their affirmations has ever come true. So naturally, they complain that affirmations are a waste of time. What this group of people do not know is that merely repeating words does not have any impact on the life of the person doing such a thing. It is wasted energy. Words spoken without faith or believe are just words, nothing else. They have no power to change lives.
So, you repeating affirmations every day does not automatically mean that you have any belief in what you are saying. Affirmation is not belief. And without belief, your affirmations are just spoken words and nothing else. This is why Christ said in Matthew 9:29 “According to your faith be it unto you.” The manifestation of your affirmations statements depends entirely on the level of your belief. For this reason, it is of vital importance that you know what belief is really is.
What Is Belief?
Belief is a conviction. It is something our own mind does not doubt. Another way of putting it is that belief is something that we inwardly do not deny.
For you to truly believe in something, you must not doubt the existence or power of such thing, be it seen or unseen. For example, you can not see gravity but you believe in its existence and power. This is something you do not doubt or inwardly deny. No matter how many people you see levitate or float in the air, you still wouldn’t for one second doubt the existence or power of gravity. This is true belief. It is something you don’t doubt or inwardly deny.
So, when you say you believe in something, you should ask yourself this question: “If I see things that are contrary to what I believe to be true on a daily or regular basis, will I still have that absolute trust and believe in the thing I believe in?” If your answer is “yes”, then you have a belief in whatever is the object of your belief.
Avoid Vain Repetitions
Repetition of affirmations daily for the sake of attention will neither attract or manifest that which you want in your life. Anyone who spends more time talking about his or her affirmations than actually concentrating his or her thoughts on the manifestations of those affirmations is more interested in getting attention than actually manifesting his or her heart desires.
Christ advised against repeating words just for the mere sake of it and then believing the repetition will result in your prayers be answered. Repetition of words without faith and believe in those words are wasted energy. It will yield nothing.
My advice to you today is that, if you do not believe in your affirmations, develop some faith in those affirmations before you start saying them. You can do this by writing your affirmations daily instead of writing them once.
Normally people write or print out their affirmations once and then read them out loud every mornings or evenings, or both.
If you do not believe in your affirmations statements, write them down every day and then read them out. This simple adjustment will reinforce the affirmation statements in you and you will start believing those affirmation statements. If you do this for 90 days without fail, you will start to believe it inwardly and once your subconscious mind accepts the statements of your affirmations as true, those affirmation statements will surely manifest in your life.
Believe It And It Will Manifest
Do you know that the only person stopping you from manifesting anything you want in life is you? Not your government, friend, family members, education or lack of it, environment or circumstances. You can blame all these external factors as much as you like but at the end of the day, the buck stops with you.
Whatever you convince yourself and believe for whatever reason to be true will always manifest in accordance with your belief. This is why Jesus said, “According to your faith be it unto you.” – Matthew 9:29 AKJV.
I once and still believe that girls will curly hair finds me attractive instantly. I do not know the origin of this believe other than that majority of the time am chatting to a beautiful lady, 8 out of 10 times, she usually has curly hairs. But since I genuinely believe this inwardly without questioning it with logic or reasons, whenever am out on a social gathering, if there is a lady with a curly hair present, she will strike up a conversation with me without me even trying. It has been this way for years and I must say I enjoy the attention. Am only human after all.
So, I convince myself that girls with curly hairs always find me attractive and this has been consistently manifested in my reality. I also convinced myself that I will always live in abundance of material and financial wealth, this also has become my reality.
This then takes us back to the heart of the matter here, the only person that needs convincing is you. Once you convince yourself that something is true, that thing will always manifest according to your belief. For belief is something we do not doubt. It is something we believe at the subconscious level to be true.
For your sake, please come to the realization that your reality and everything inside it is all your creation. You created them all by believing in certain things as true. Permit me to repeat the statement of Christ again “According to your faith be it unto you.” – Matthew 9:29 AKJV.
Christ said in the book of Matthew 18:3 that “Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven“.
You have to be converted and become childlike before you can be able to convince yourself to believe things that are against your human logic. In the article March Forward To Greater Things, I asked: “What is the Kingdom of God to you?” I also answered this question in that article. I suggest you read that article also.
But for the sake of better understanding; I explained in that article that the kingdom of God is the manifestation of both our physical and spiritual needs. Knowing this, one can easily conclude that one cannot attain or enter the kingdom of God unless one has a childlike mindset.
Affirmations are used to create things. Another way of putting it is that affirmations are used to manifest things. The thing you want to manifest in your life could be spiritual or physical. This object of your desire is your kingdom of God which you want to enter in this instance and “unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.“
Why Childlike Mindset? A childlike mindset does not involve much logic and reasoning. A child simply trusts his dad or mum will do as they have promised. Children have confidence, trust and believe in the promise that has been made to them no matter how unrealistic that promise might be to a logical mind. This is the reason you need to have a childlike mindset. You need to trust God – the Infinite Mind is able to give you that mansion or car which you desire no matter how crazy such demand might sound to your logical mind. You need to have absolute confidence, trust and believe that which you seek is already you.
So in order for you to manifest your affirmations, you will need to believe at your subconscious level that:
(1) Every statement in your affirmations are absolute truth.
(2) Every statement in your affirmations has already manifested.
