Sometimes life takes us full circle and we go back to the basics. That’s been true for me this year, including reconnecting with the power of my Word through the use of affirmations.
In April I watched a YouTube video where Lewis Howes was interviewing Bob Proctor. Parts of the conversation were dry, to be honest, but I hung in there long enough to hear Bob share the affirmation that he credits with setting him on the path from being a school dropout making little money to being a millionaire? billionaire? whatever Bob is now.
I figured Hey, if it’s good enough for Bob Proctor, maybe I should let it be good enough for me too, LOL.
Here’s the affirmation Bob shared:
I am so happy and grateful now that money comes to me in increasing quantities from multiple sources on a continuous basis.
I immediately set up a reminder on my Google Calendar to say this affirmation every day. Within two weeks, I experienced positive changes in my money flow, including more messages from potential clients, an idea for a new healing program, and my PPP loan got approved and funded.
During that time, I was also reminded what it takes to make affirmations work:
- What’s most important is that you feel what you’re saying while you recite the affirmation.
- I’ll go even further than that: Every time I recited the affirmation, I spent a few minutes sitting in the feeling of receiving more and more money.
- Also, I recited the affirmation slowly enough that I could discern if there were any pieces of it that didn’t feel good to me. It’s a good thing I did – I noticed that the phrase “from multiple sources” triggered me every time. My subconscious mind believed that my healing work was the only worthy source of income, which meant that for the first few days of using the affirmation (before I noticed that trigger), I was putting out negative energy toward this intention and working against it until I released my resistance to multiple sources of income.
I think that last point is super important, don’t you? It’s not enough to simply say the words. Since most of the time we use affirmations to manifest things we don’t already have, we have to pay close attention to whether we believe those words and are 100% aligned with the desire that they are affirming. Your feelings will tell you!
By the way, my money manifestations didn’t stop after the first two weeks. My client enrollments have further increased (which means helping more people too – hooray!) and I invested in a client attraction program based on my Akashic records that I knew as soon as I saw it would blow the lid off my business. (Shout out to Emma Churchman!)
Since it has been so successful, I’ve also repurposed this affirmation format for other intentions, like “experiencing fun and love in increasing quantities from multiple sources [etc. etc.]” In the first three weeks that one a) manifested a date with a guy who was outside my usual type, b) has gotten out of my apartment a little more, and c) even helped me bring a different vibe to these articles.
Your turn: Do you use affirmations? Have you worked with Bob’s money affirmations? What are some of your other favorites? Do you have a great story about a time that an affirmation worked for you?
Also, if you start using this affirmation, I’d love for you to come back in a few weeks and share your experiences in the comments.
