The problem I always had with affirmations though was that when you said something (such as “I am wealthy and abundant”) there was always a voice that would counteract it. (“No you’re not!” or “But you are in debt!”)
- It presupposes it is true when you say it in a present tense (“Why do…” or “Why are”) taking care of the attitude of the internal (your thoughts and your state) which is backed up by evidence, throwing water on the “doubting voices” in your mind.
- It also takes care of the external (evidence of the affirmation) by giving you reasons to look for in life, actions to take and a deeper connection between your internal and external realities.
When you make a statement you see things as they are. When you ask a question you peer beyond your current understanding into the unknown and into new possibilities.
