How Adding a Simple Question to Your Affirmations Supercharges Them!
A reader asked me a very interesting question about the What Your Body Wants to Hear meditations. I thought it may be of interest to others. So here’s our conversation:-
I found your website which led me here. Your writing on how to Heal Your Relationship with Money really impacted me. One area I don’t quite understand is the “why” questions…Can you share why ask “why”.
Thank you again for such beautiful writing/work!”
“Thank you for getting in touch and for your kind words.
The “Why” questions or ‘Afformations’, are a method of bridging from the releasing statements to the positive affirmations. It could otherwise be too large a jump for people to go straight in to really feeling the positive. It is also a way to get around the mind saying “yes but..” to a positive affirmation. There is a very different energy around the “Why” statements, try it for yourself, you will probably feel it. For example if you say “I am abundant” your mind will probably jump to the reasons you are not abundant, “I’ve got this debt/I haven’t got any money” that kind of thing. If on the other hand you say “Why am I so abundant?” the mind tends to go to the things you are abundant in, love, friends, pets, health etc. There is less resistance to the “Why” statements and they help to lead you in to the positive. I hope this helps.
A few people tried making a positive affirmation then asking a question and felt the difference in the energy between the two. People who initially thought it would be a negative thing tried it out and realised that far from being negative, it opens us up to the many blessings we actually do have in our lives. It helps us see what is going right for us. In the case of physical healing, it reminds us of all the parts of our bodies which are working beautifully.
Asking the right questions really helps you get more powerful results from your energy work! Transcripts of all my healing guided meditations are freely available on my site and all the What Your Body Wants to Hear meditations contain powerful questions to open your mind and allow positive affirmations to work more powerfully.
