My book, Quantum Affirmations, changes lives for the better. Here’s how it works:
You don’t say a quantum affirmation, you do a quantum affirmation and you do it completely. Remember, the word “quantum” comes from “quantus,” the Latin word for “how much,” and how much you get into your quantum affirmation will determine how much you are going to get out of it.
You must determine what your goal is before you do your quantum affirmation. Let’s say you’re a salesman and you’re lying down in bed after a few weeks of not selling one thing. You believe there’s a good chance you’re going to get fired and you couldn’t blame your boss for doing so. After all, you have failed at your goal of selling.
Wait a minute! What are you doing to yourself? As the great Indian sage Paramahansa Yogananda said, “The time of defeat is the best time to sow the seeds of future successes.” There you are in the present moment, the point of power, and you’re wasting it on negative quantum affirmations. You’re imagining what hasn’t happened yet as if it was the most real thing in the world. Are you doing it because you are afraid of being judged a failure, and, if this disaster happens, you can at least point to it and say, “I’m not a total failure, at least I knew it!”
Why not do the scientific thing to sow the seeds of future successes, because quantum physics agrees with Yogananada: When you’re in the heightened state that perceived failure and disappointment puts you in, the structure of your world breaks down and its easier to rearrange the pieces. In fact, that may be one reason we create these failures and disappointments—to break our routine and enable us to become the person we must be in order to encounter the future.
So instead of doing a negative quantum affirmation, i.e., leaping ahead and imagining yourself fully in a world where your fears have become real, why not do a positive quantum affirmation and leap fully into the world that you want to be real? You may feel like an actor at first, but soon you’ll realize that acting is hard but rewarding work. And though you may not win an Academy Award, you’ll win the future you imagine yourself being in, but it all depends on how much!
