Afformations with Affirmations


Recommended Posts

Hi George, I am wondering if you make some videos by using question forms long with the positive affirmations. I believe that this will be make faster results with your excellent work.


This is a guest article by Noah St. John, We all know that an “affirmation” is a statement of something you want to be true in your life. So an example of a traditional “affirmation” might be: “I am rich.”All right, let’s try it. Say to yourself right now, “I am rich.” Did you hear what just happened in your mind? A voice… a voice that said: “Yeah, right!”

The plain truth is that most of us don’t believe our own “affirmations”. Why? Because we’re trying to convince ourselves of something we don’t believe is true.

Now, traditional success teachers realized that you may not believe your “affirmations”. So they told us to repeat our “affirmations” a thousand…er, million…uh, kajillion times until you eventually, um, believe them.

Have you ever said positive “affirmations” (for example, “I am rich, I’m happy, I have enough”)… and then had… Absolutely nothing happen?

Me too. And about a gazillion other people. I was in the shower one morning, thinking about how the human mind is always in the process of asking and seeking the answers to questions.

For example, if I asked you, “Why is the sky blue?” – instantly, your brain would start searching for the answer. So I asked myself, “If the human mind is always asking and searching for the answers to questions, why are we going around making statements we don’t believe? Why don’t we cut out the middleman?”

Then I asked, “What would that look like?” I realized that if we make a statement (“affirmation”) that says, “I am rich” and our brain replies, “Yeah, right!” the question might look something like this: why am I so rich?

Come again?

Why am I so rich?

Try it. Right now, ask yourself, “Why am I so rich?” What’s your brain doing right now? Searching for the answer!

Remember Universal Law – “As you sow, so shall you reap”. Most people are unconsciously asking lousy questions, like: “Why am I such a loser? Why can’t I do anything right? How come I’m so lonely?


Why don’t I have enough money?” Guess what they reap? The fruits of what they’ve sown! And that’s how, on that fateful morning, I discovered and named the process of using afformations. Afformations are my discovery of empowering questions (NOT “affirmations”) that cause your mind to focus on what you really want, and stop focusing on what you don’t want.

Here are some examples of Afformations that my students have used with amazing results:

Why am I allowed to be, do and have all that I want in life?

Brandon, an insurance salesman in Salt Lake City who’d spent $30,000 on self-help programs with few results, started using this Afformation in May. In 30 days, his sales tripled – and by the end of the year, his revenues had increased more than 560% and he was named Agent of the Year.

Why do I lose weight so easily?

Monee had tried every diet program out there, but couldn’t lose weight. She began using this Afformation – and lost 20 pounds in 60 days without stress or dieting.

And one of my favorite Afformation stories…

I disagree with the "afformation" theory for a lot of reasons.

But the main one is that they are designed for affirmations that are spoken aloud, or read, or heard slowly.


They are a TECHNIQUE to disarm the conscious critic.


However, if you are hearing 256 voices at once, you can't hear any of them. They are ALREADY bypassing your conscious critic, so there's no need for clever trickery.


Mind Persuasion subliminals are designed to FLOOD the subconscious with short, powerful statements that add up to a change in belief. 


Affformations are designed for consciously said affirmations.

Honestly need more information on this.These stories are incomplete. My question on this would be:


What actions were you taking beforehand, and what are you doing differently now?


Those new "afformations", for example, might have caused that Insurance Salesman to go over objection destroyers every morning or caused Monee to incorporate better dieting habits and exercise techniques to lose weight. So both of them asked why am I successful in ____? And then, they came up with the right actions for success. 


So it may have worked for those two because it made both of them execute differently - which, good for them, but it doesn't make the afformation technique superior to affirmations in any way.
