Harnessing Word Power

The word "affirmation" means to "assert positively". 

Affirmations have long been considered a powerful way to bring your deepest desires into the conscious realm.  But I have a little problem with affirmation type thinking (like the book The Secret).  If all it took was affirmations to get what we want, then how come we're all not wealthy, beautiful, creative, popular and headed for the Oprah show?

The function of the conscious mind is to interpret information that is received and filter any  "unrealistic" messages (messages that contradict our more deeply held views) from the subconscious.

I personally have spent days, weeks, months, and even years repeating and meditating on wealth and prosperity mantras.  How about you?  Did they work?

If not, your subconscious mind was filtering that message as a lie. It rejects the mantra as false.  The subconscious will say, "You - prosperous?  Ha!  You can't even pay the light bill."  And that's the reality the subconsious will work on.
