Creating Positive Affirmations - Rule 1

Big No No!

Our brains do not register negative words in our self-talk.  This means that if you create a affirmation saying "I will not panic", the message you are actually giving repeatedly to your mind is "I will panic".

The same situation occurs with "I am not fat", or "I never spend more than I can afford", or "I am not stressed" or any other affirmation with a negative in it. 

The brain responds to the negatively based sentence as if it did not contain the "no", or "not", or "never", or whatever.  This means the message being received by our sub-conscious is the exact opposite to the original message.  Everything we are affirming we don't want, is being heard by the brain as an affirmation of something we do want.  "I am NOT fat!" is heard by the brain as "I AM fat".

The subconscious does not judge our affirmations, it simply follows our instructions and ensures we obtain our desire.  If we keep unintentionally affirming we are fat, or stressed, or poor, we very quickly become fat, or stressed, or poor, or whatever else we are unintentionally affirming for ourselves.

Always ensure an affirmation is affirming want you do want, not what you don't want.  Positive affirmations lead towards a positive objective, not away from a problem.  "I will not panic" shows the desire to run away from a problem.  "I am calm and peaceful" leads the brain to a positive solution.

Examples of positive affirmations are: "I am calm and peaceful", "I study easily and well", "Wonderful things are always happening to me".   Decide what you do want, not what you don't want then state it in the most positive, affirmative statement you can create.
