Literally like 2 days ago I started doing affirmations. Today, at the self operated coin car wash I put $5 in the change machine and it spit out over $100 in coins.

I looked around, there were no attendees. I looked around, no other customers noticed that this change machine is now a slot machine and I just won.

There were no phone numbers to call on the machine so I figured these coins are mine now. That’s their bad for a broken machine. Right?

Also today, I got paid on a job that for sure I thought wouldn’t pay for at least a couple more weeks.

Is it the affirmations? Or is it random? I’m gonna say it’s the affirmations.

I’ve read about them and never tried them, they didn’t appeal to me for some reason. Although the idea that we can influence our subconscious mind by way of our conscious mind is very real to me. As it is our subconscious mind that is running this projection called reality.

Anyways, I read some new things about affirmations that resonated and changed my mind.

First, switch them to 3rd person. Then align them to your goals while affirming the action of the goal. This makes it more truthful, more meaningful, and more actionable. Write them down if you have to and run them through your head all day.

For example saying, “I make a million dollars per month,” it doesn’t feel legit therefore becomes negligible. But something like, “Ray is committed to making a million dollars per month,” sounds more flowy because it reinforces the action of commitment. Also when using it in 3rd person, it’s like a command to the subconscious. Or a new paradigm for an identity shift.

Write them in your own words and make them particular to you. (The million dollars example is just an example and not my real one, or ones. I’m running like 10 of them at the moment.)

This last part is the most important part, that is to confirm it when your reality starts shifting. You find a penny on the ground, you get a synchronicity about an opportunity or whatever, use that as confirmation that the affirmations are now working. Confirm it, log it, lock it in. This seals the deal.

This confirmation is the attitude of gratitude and that attitude will bring change. More updates on this later.
