It always amazes me when people affirm the most negative things. A friend called me to say that he had backed his truck into a tree and added, “Every time things really start going good for me, something always happens to set me back.” Well of course it does – he’s hardwiring that belief direct into his subconscious mind. Should it be any surprise when that subconscious mind then leads him to take actions that cause his beliefs to actually play out on the physical realm? How often do you hear people say (or you speak) statements like, “Every winter I get at least three colds,” or “My back goes out at least once a year.”
When you speak statements like that, it’s voluntary self-sabotage.
Think how many times good things happen and people are shocked. They win $500 in a radio contest and immediately start shrieking, “I can’t believe it! I can’t believe it! I never win anything!” Or something bad happens, they drop a dish or spill something and proclaim, “I just knew that was going to happen!” Of course they did...
A harmful (and common) habit to avoid is speaking of yourself in demeaning terms. Statements like “I’m always a day late and a dollar short,” or, “If it wasn’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all,” will endear you to the people in your world who vibrate on victim consciousness. But those same statements also repel prosperity and become self-fulfilling prophecies for you, as you’re programming them into your subconscious mind. The words you speak create your programming, your vision and ultimately, the reality you produce.
A much more empowering habit is speaking your prosperity into existence using the power of positive affirmations. If you’re going to determine your prosperity by the words you speak, why not affirm things like the positive statements below? These are some of my personal favorite affirmations:
I release all that no longer serves me, and am open to the good that is coming to me.
I see my good and then I manifest my good.
That which does not serve me, I release. I am open to the rich, bountiful good that is coming my way.
Money is attracted to me like a magnet!
I know the Universe is good and I send forth my own good to be multiplied.
As I envision in my mind, so I manifest on this earth.
Just as I dream it, so I will achieve it.
I release the old me, forgive myself, and move forward to accept my abundance.
Please. Be mindful of what you say. Choose to speak your prosperity into existence. And if you have a favorite affirmation, please share it below.
