“You will be a failure, until you impress the subconscious with the conviction you are a success. This is done by making an affirmation which ‘clicks.'”
~ Florence Scovel Shinn

Find out how to create more effective affirmations in this episode. Last week’s guest, Candice Sinai, joined me again this week during the Bonus Q&A segment.
Switching the focus from feelings of prosperity and abundance to dealing with affirmations was a logical topic choice. There are many things we can do to help ourselves feel more abundance and be more prosperous. Using affirmations is one way.

  • I enjoyed listening to this episode of Fast Action Friday,Kat. As you pointed out, generic affirmations won’t work and if one is sensitive enough, one does feel a resistance. Rephrasing to make the affirmation acceptable to the subconscious mind is a great idea. In my case, I use muscle testing to check for resonance. Thanks for the tips.

    • Delighted that you enjoyed the episode and found the info useful. Using muscle testing is a great idea. I’ve never thought of using it in connection with affirmations. Thank you so much for sharing that wisdom, Vatsala.

  • I’ve been on about this exact thing, it seems like forever. Forward looking affirmation, those starting with I will, I want, I will have, etc., will remain forward looking forever. When I teach the Law of Attraction I come across the same thing. People say, “It doesn’t work form me!” or “I tried but it didn’t work!” when, in fact, it is actually working just fine. It is the participant that is asking for the wrong thing! We are all exactly in life where we choose to be. If you don’t believe that then you just don’t get it. Candice Sinai obviously does.
