Along the years somewhere, sometime, someone called how we use ours letters, "spelling". What you put into form will manifest if you are not careful. "Be careful what you wish for...."
Words carry huge weight in creating our experience. It is the old cause and effect scenario. The words we habitually use are indeed affirmations. The stated or thought word energy delivers.
The causal energy that creates doesn't determine whether or not what we are saying is right for us. It (that universal mind energy) just manifests what we say because cosmic law states that spirit doesn't intervene with our free will. You create it so it comes.
We can all think of experiences we created that we didn't want. Think of negative or fearful thoughts you had and brooded on, and how they came into being. We've all done this.
So, to forge a positive year for yourself, (or month, or week or day) word it into being. Affirmations are like prayer in a way but instead of asking a higher spiritual entity, such as God, to intervene on your behalf, you are taking charge and creating with your own God-given power.
This is our divine birthright and many people don't know it. We ALL have had this ability. My parents didn't explain this to me. They probably didn't know, just as their parents and their parents didn't know. In fact, I only learned of this conclusively well into my 30s.
Knowing this, I still call upon the angels to assist. It certainly helps. The Archangels are here to help humans, so ask them.
I happen to know that this human power is ancient knowledge and the masses have been kept from it. I am not a conspiratist, no; the conspirators are those who say we are mere victims and have to rely on smarter people to better our own lives. What utter bs.
I have heard stories of how affirmations manifested, but the affirmation "spell" wasn't clear enough and it needed to be re-done. For instance, you may want a partner who can pay for his own green fees and not rely on you to pay every time you wanted to go play some golf. The universe delivered him in the form of a person who had unlimited free access due to a company perk. But he lacked financial resources for just about everything else. Re-do!
In other words, make sure you know what you don't want as well as what you do want. That is key so that your manifestation is spot-on.
Let me be clear on this point. When doing successful affirmations they are best done in the positive "tense". Affirmations that begin with, "I don't want ____ to happen to me anymore" is not as powerful and not nearly as clear as "I want _______ to happen to me and it will!".
The negative way of stating it seems to put all the power on another entity or source and leaving it to their/its discretion as to what the outcome should be. No no no. That is defeating the whole God-given power we have inately within us.
We simply state what we do want in no uncertain terms. Then we believe it, we "see" it, until it gets embedded into our subconscious mind, where it naturally materializes into being. And boom.
