I recently stumbled across a clever little thing called "Afformations." Discovered by Noah St. John, they put a spin on that monkey-minded self-analysis we all love to indulge in. He says, "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."

His theory is that the reason affirmations don't readily work is the mind doesn't really believe them. When we just make an affirmation statement, like: I am rich, I have prosperity flowing into my life," our brain responds by saying, "Yeah, SURE you are. I'm not dumb, you know. Ain't nuthin' looking like prosperity around these parts!"

But if you ask the mind a question, it automatically seeks an answer.
When we make an afformation, we engage our brain in the task of seeking a different kind of perspective: "Why am I so rich?" And off the brain goes, seeking the answer. Instead of hitting a wall of resistance-thinking, the brain is examining all the ways you DO feel rich, confirming the feelings for you. And that puts you in a better vibration.

Change the question and you'll change the result. Ask a better question and you'll get a better answer.

The Noah St. John 4 Steps to Create Afformations That Can Change Your Life

Step 1: Ask yourself what you want.
Step 2: Form a question that assumes that What You Want is already true. "Why am I so healthy? Why am I living my dreams? Why am I so rich? Why am I so happy?"
Step 3: Give yourself to the question. St. John says, "Once you ask a question of your mind, whether you know it or not, your mind automatically starts to Search for the answer without your conscious volition."
Step 4: Take new actions based on your new assumptions about life. He says, "The point of The Afformation Method is not to find “the answer” to your questions. The point is to change what your mind automatically FOCUSES ON. Since you are now going to FORM positive questions that assume that what you want is already true, your mind has no choice but to find a way to make it so."

I do believe this sounds like a good idea! I consider this a good Abraham step to be taking today. Why am I so happy?
