I think I've figured out how this works, at least for those of us who use affirmations to create what we choose in our lives:
- An affirmation is a positive, present tense, first person statement of what you are choosing.
- By repeating it over and over, you are implanting it as a belief in your unconscious mind. And, as Seth (channeled through Jane Roberts) said, about 30 years ago, you create your reality through your beliefs.
- The unconscious mind is very literal, so it will draw to you, or have you notice in physical reality, the manifestation of the words of your affirmation/new belief.
- Because it is so literal, the unconscious mind will screen out everything BUT what you are stating in your affirmation.
Now I get why! My very literal, unconscious mind, was saying, "If I am who I am, and do what I love, I'll prosper." Period. It interpreted my doing something I didn't love, as me not choosing prosperity. Every time I made myself do something I didn't want to do, it shut down the prosperity thereby negating all the actions I took! Duh!
