Affirmations give you the power to change what is in your heart.
Affirmations do more than change the way you think; they also change the way you feel.
Changing the way you think is relatively easy. It’s merely an exercise in logic.
Your rational mind is always open to the power of reason. It easily swallows watermelon size chunks of truth as long as it’s logical. You usually need to say an affirmation only once for your rational mind to buy into it. If the affirmation is logical, your mind accepts it and files it away without argument.
Your emotional mind isn’t so easily convinced. It’s hard to change the way you feel.
You may need to repeat an affirmation fifty times before your emotional mind accepts it. It’s an eternal skeptic and must be shown the truth many times before it will believe. That is why affirmations are so valuable. You can repeat them until you overwhelm the inner skeptic and change the way you feel.
