When Positive Affirmations Don’t Work


  1. I feel absolutely positive all of the time. I am confident in myself and my abilities and I know that I am one of the best in my profession as I have been told this by other professionals.

    I used to smoke 20- cigarettes a day and when I decided to stop, I did so…immediately, with will-power alone and that was 30 years ago. I have never touched a cigarette since.

    If I have a headache, I imagine a beam of bright blue light shining down on me and flushing the pain away and it works. The longest I have ever had a headache is perhaps three minutes using this method, but usually it goes in a few seconds.

    But affirmations to make things happen?….no chance whatsoever for me. I have tried. I have taken courses. I have purchased recorded instructions on tape and CD at no small cost explaining how to achieve using affirmation….absolutely nothing works for me on that level.

  2. Hi Paul! Thanks for reading and sharing your experience! Those are some great stories, congratulations!

    I too quit smoking about 9 years ago and never went back. I too, can move energy with my thoughts and feel relief, when something is bothering me. I can focus my self into feeling better, by changing my perspective.

    Obviously, everyone is different, and you seem like a powerful deliberate creator. There’s no one way that works for everyone, but to stay on the topic, I want to point out this… You said some key words when it comes to using affirmations- to make things happen.

    When I use affirmations for the purpose of focusing of my desire, because it feels good to do so, and detach from making things happen, it completely becomes different experience and results in terms of manifestation. For example,,, ‘I love focusing on what feels good to me’ or ‘ I love aligning my thoughts and feelings with the abundance/love/vitality I want, etc. Before you know it, you’ll be saying, I love thinking and feeling about____. I love being_____. I am______!

    Thank you again for stopping by and sharing! 🙂
