What are you affirming? WTH is affirming? Lol- it means to make firm, to make something stick, to repeat something long enough to make it work. It's related to persistence! The longer you do it with strong belief, it is guaranteed to be granted to you!
Kinda like a prayer- yes, repeating an "Our father" can affirm the important statements in the prayer itself!
If you know the prayer, it really talks about how blessed we really are and that we have the power to bring wealth to ourselves by the faith that we place in the power of the words that you are saying! But are we really paying attention to the words that we are saying, or are we just being robotic because it's what we've learned to do. Another example is the "Pledge of Allegiance!" Do you wonder if students really know what they are repeating for 180 days that they are in school.
When can we exercise the power of affirming? If you said, "At any time!" You are absolutely correct. You are always affirming whether you think you are or not, but if you make it a practice to affirm what you really want to go after, attain, or become- you can hone in on the universal law of attraction and bring to yourself anything you want! Yes, you are in charge of your thoughts, and you can choose what and how you say things to yourself in order to empower yourself enough to feel like you have a magnetic mind.
For example, if you are constantly saying, "dang I've got to pay these bills and I'm broke"- your mind will automatically find a way to make that your reality! It will say, okay, "your wish is my command!" But on the other hand you say, "I am grateful for the opportunity to pay all my bills with love because I know I have more than enough always!" Your mind will serve you just as well! Remember, you are always affirming, or bringing to yourself what you constantly think or talk about! Choose abundance of health, wealth, success, and happiness always!
With that said, "Put a little MaxPower into your life!"
