3 Reasons Why Affirmations Don’t Always Work

With Jen Gutfriend

Show Notes


I used to get so frustrated with affirmations. I was told they were so powerful and it was the key to manifesting the things I desire, but they just didn’t work. That is until I uncovered the reasons why and turned things around.

There are 3 reasons why affirmations do not work:

  1. It goes against your subconscious beliefs
    1. If you have the subconscious belies that money doesn’t grow on trees or risch people are evil, no amount of affirmations will work. You need to uncover and remove these beliefs first.
  2. Your mind doesn’t believe its possible
    1. If you use the affirmation, I am a millionaire, yet you are making less that 50k per year, your mind doesn’t see how this is possible. But if instead you say. I am becoming more wealthy every day, your mind can believe that.
  3. You’re not giving it the attention it deserves
    1. You can’t just say your affirmation quickly as your headed out the door or because you see a sticky note on your fridge. It’s like a partner, you need to give it the attention and energy it deserves. You need to devote time and energy to saying your affirmations. Its the energy that creates the manifestation, not just the words.
