Great Little Book - Afformations
A BIG heart-felt THANK YOU to Taetske @laparra1 for introducing me to Noah St. John's great little book on Afformations, The Secret Code of Success.
It's a fabulous book. I practically devoured the first 73 pages and can't wait to read the rest of the book but first I wanted to share some of what I've learnt with all of you.
Noah St. John coined the term Afformations when he realised that traditional Affirmations are like using a chainsaw to try drill a hole in the wall. They are great in themselves, but simply the wrong tool for the job.
He found that asking empowering questions is a far quicker way to shift your mind's focus from what you lack to what you have.
He suggests that instead of just blindly repeating affirmations, that you instead:
- consider everything you want to be, do, have and achieve
- write them down, and then
- turn them into empowering questions.
It works particularly well if you take a previously negative question you may have been asking unconsciously and turn it into a positive. For example - some of you may have had this question simmering somewhere below the surface.
Negative Unconscious Question: Why am I taking so long to achieve success at Wealthy Affiliate?
New Positive Question: Why am I achieving success so quickly at Wealthy Affiliate?
Noah St. John offers his Top 10 Afformations:
- Why am I so rich?
- Why am I so happy?
- Why am I enough?
- Why am I good enough?
- Why do I have what it takes to succeed?
- Why do I have the courage to do what I love?
- Why does opportunity come to me so easily now?
- Why do I enjoy so much success?
- Why do I have more than enough money in my business?
- Why does having what I want help others get what they want?
I have to admit, these seemed like strange questions to pose at first - yet I could immediately see how my mind started searching for answers that would solve the question (exactly as Noah St. John said it would) and how this, then put me in a different frame of mind. How I started to feel grateful for what I already have.
Very interested to see how my ACTIONS change as a result of firing these weird questions out into the ether every day.
And that's the final step in implementing Afformations: "Take new ACTIONS based on your new assumptions about life".
So I took the liberty of turning Monday's Affirmations to Afformations - see how these feel for you now.
