It is about rephrasing something where answers are obtained like for example - why is money flowing to me? The brain then starts searching for answers to this question! There’s no conflict for your brain to try and decode. So it is by asking questions that reality is formed and that is why they are called afformations.
THE WEEK AHEAD August 8-14
Here are 4 steps to do this: Step 1: Ask yourself what you want and be very specific. For afformations to work you need a good level of clarity. Step 2: Form a question that assumes what you want is already true. This is the key step to creating afformations that change your life: Ask yourself why the goal has been achieved Step 3: Give yourself to the question. The point of afformations does not lie in finding “the answer,” but in asking better questions. When you ask better questions, your mind automatically focuses on things you’ve probably never focused on before and the results will be amazing. Step 4: Take new actions based on new assumptions. The best time to take action is as soon as possible. Change your questions, change your results.
So some of the good questions can be:
Why does money flow so easily to me?
Why am I so successful?
Why do things always go in my favour?
Why am I so blessed to enjoy good health?
Why am I so popular? Why do only good things happen to me?
The sky is the limit. Ask questions and things begin to change with several options for you to work with.
