Help, my affirmations aren't working!

What can you do if your affirmations aren't working?

Here it comes even if you are saying it with positive sounding words with a smile on your face. The words don't matter. You've practiced your words into meaningless jabbering.
But the Universe/LOA is responding to your vibrational output.  Abraham-Hicks

Day after day, several times a day, you are saying or writing your affirmations but you aren't seeing any results.  You might think you are doing them wrong, or that they just don't work and it's just more of that positive thinking crap that is a load of BS, but don't give up just yet.

What if I told you that ANY affirmation will work, and it will work for YOU if you can do one thing differently?

What's that one thing- you ask?

I'll tell you-  instead of mindlessly repeating words, even positive words, you have to believe them.  You have to get yourself to that place where you can feel what it would be like if what you are affirming was true.

You can say or write your affirmations a million times but if you counteract your words with thoughts that contradict them there is no possible way that they can come true.

An example would be...  I am wealthy beyond my wildest dreams.  That is a great affirmation, but if your mind is saying things like everyone has it rough in this economy, I can barely pay the bills on time, I wonder if I'm going to be laid off next...  what do you think the Universe responds to?

The energy (or vibration) you are sending out is a perfect match to what you are getting back, so it is no wonder things are rough for you and you have a hard time paying your bills and there's just enough to get by.  The Universe always responds to how you FEEL about something, not what you say.

You can change your affirmation to something you do believe, such as I trust that I will create abundance or I am relaxing into greater abundance or if even that is too unbelievable for you at this moment, you can try something like I love being debt free.  Do you see how that feels?  Your thoughts are not battling that statement because hello, of course it feels great not to have to worry about how you will pay your bills.  You can say with complete confidence-  I LOVE BEING DEBT FREE.  That feels good.  That feels like relief.  Stick with that affirmation until it is ingrained and you are ready to move on to another. 
 

Another option would be to change the way you feel about your chosen affirmation.

You can ease your way into better feeling thoughts until you do line up your energy with that which you want to create.  One way to do this that I have found helpful is to write out your affirmation, then write the negative thoughts that come, then write out your affirmation and again write what comes trying each time to come a little bit closer into alignment.  If writing it out doesn't feel good to you, then by all means have an inner dialogue or type it or whatever does feel right. 

Here's an example:  (This is a condensed version- take as long as you need to move from the negative thoughts to the positive ones that will make your affirmations your reality.)

Affirmation:  I am wealthy beyond my wildest dreams.
Thoughts:  I barely scrape by, nobody I know is prospering in this economy.
Affirmation:  I am wealthy beyond my wildest dreams.
Thoughts:  Just because I personally don't know them doesn't mean the economy is hurting everyone-  some people and businesses are doing better than ever.
Affirmation:  I am wealthy beyond my wildest dreams.
Thoughts:  I should stop listening to all the glum-gusses and negative nellies and start to listen to my own inner voice that tells me I live in an abundant Universe.
Affirmation:  I am wealthy beyond my wildest dreams.
Thoughts:  If other people can prosper in these times so can I.
Affirmation:  I am wealthy beyond my wildest dreams.
Thoughts:  I will keep my eyes on the prize and every time my thoughts start to echo those of the barely-enoughs I will remind myself that I am just as deserving as anyone else and I too can be wealthy in all good things.
Affirmation:  I am wealthy beyond my wildest dreams.
Thoughts:  You know, I am really starting to feel like this could be my reality.
Affirmation:  I am wealthy beyond my wildest dreams.
Thoughts.  I'm just going to go about my business and let the Universe decide how and when to shower me with the riches I have stored up in my Vibrational Escrow.
Affirmation:  I am wealthy beyond my wildest dreams.
Thoughts.  I am loving this.  Bring it on.

Do you see how this could work?  Do it as often as you need to, remember there is no timetable.  As Abe says, you can't get it wrong and you'll never get it done so have fun with all of this.
