I knew of a therapist once who told all his clients, "Affirmations don't work, so don't do that!"
Admittedly, some of my past affirmations didn't always work. They sounded like too much of a stretch from where I presently was to where I wanted to be. I have since learned that affirmations must be believable. For example, for someone struggling to pay their bills, to affirm, "All the abundance of the Universe is now mine" sounds like pure fiction. But, could not a person realistically come to believe in their ability to be debt-free if they could reason in a little more "general" kind of way? Perhaps.
New doors of opportunity open for me. After all, they have in the past. I paid off all my bills in the past and I know that I can do it again. I have seen it with my own eyes and it is exciting to behold. I know I now have the means within me to pay for my student loan!
In other words, I know that whatever I set my intention towards I can successfully accomplish. So, I had to convince myself, based on past history, that my goal of paying my student loan is do-able. So, then I could more generally affirm, "I have the means within me and all is well with my finances!"
The student loan is not in vain. New doors certainly open in most unexpected ways! Happily, I was able to successfully complete my Certificate Program in Multimedia and Web Design.
Energetically, shifts do occur once I affirm my goals. Shifts occur after I set my intentions, establish priorities and gain clarity of how I see my future. Quite simply, I affirm how I would like my world to appear. After all, I am the Creator of my own reality! Anyone who gets a personal email from will note my signature line quoting Peter Drucker's famous words, which have personal application for me:
"The Best Way To Predict The Future
is to Create It!" ~~Peter Drucker
