Affirmations are short phrases which you repeat over and over again for an intended result. If you want to achieve anything, affirmations can help you to achieve that because they are extremely powerful in helping you to achieve your objectives. You just need to know how to use them. They can help you to attract things into your life if you follow the right way. It is also used in conjunction with visualisation and imagination. When you use it along with visualisation, it can be more powerful and can help you to attract things that you want to achieve faster.

Why is it used?

Affirmation is used to program your subconscious mind for success. Different affirmations are used to program your mind in a way which will help it to achieve or attract things in your experiential reality. Your subconscious mind is about 90% of your total and it is the strongest. It has the biggest and most profound influence over your and your mind.

The subconscious mind is also sublime and it never questions your instructions and your ideas. It is neutral and so whatever you tell it accepts that without any questions or doubt. So, it also means that you should be very careful in deciding what to tell it.

How do you do that?

How do you program your subconscious mind so that you can achieve what you want to achieve? There are some obstacles and the first obstacle is your conscious mind. This is the mind that you use every day to interact with the physical world and it constitutes only 10% of your total mind. Whatever you direct towards the subconscious mind, it will try to intercept and analyse everything and may not agree to most of the things and when that happens, it will resurrect them right there. Your conscious mind is often resistant to change and it likes to keep doing the things the way it has been done all the time whether it's good or bad for you. This is why many people cannot get their formations to work for them. The conscious mind is not allow the masses to reach the subconscious mind.

To overcome this obstacle, you will have to bypass the conscious mind so that you can gain direct access to the subconscious mind. It is possible to do so with the help of three ways. The first way is to repeat the affirmation and expose yourself to the affirmation so many times that your conscious mind cannot intercept and reject it. The second way is to use the affirmation in a way that your conscious mind cannot perceive them and the affirmation reaches your subconscious mind directly. The third way is to use the affirmation at a time when the conscious mind is less active. The best times in that case can be just before sleep and just after waking up.

If you keep repeating your affirmations until you drift off to sleep can be very powerful. When you do that, the affirmations will reach your subconscious mind directly. Besides that, more importantly, it will continue to influence your subconscious mind during sleep. You can increase the possibility of the affirmation reaching your subconscious mind by writing it down on sticky notes, whiteboards or any other places around your home, office, your car or anywhere else, so that you continue to see them frequently everywhere. That will also help you to program your subconscious mind towards achieving the objective that you want to achieve.
