Programming for Abundance

By Joan Sotkin

Our thoughts, beliefs and emotions (TBEs) create our reality. The actual course of our lives is determined by the quality and nature of our TBEs.

If you want to change any part of your life, you will have to identify your TBEs, release those that cause discomfort, and replace them with others that will lead to what you want.

Because it has taken many years of intense programming for you to get where you are. It can take time to turn your life around. However, it can be done, and one of the most effective techniques you can use is affirmations.

Affirmations-positive phrases are simple to do, anytime anywhere. I have come to believe that we create our life stories to express buried emotion. For example, if you are often disappointed, then you are probably acting out disappointment that you experience in childhood.

You need the disappointment in the present time in order to express the old emotions. Once you identify the emotions that you are acting out through your life stories, you can begin the affirmation process by releasing your need for that emotion.

If disappointment is your habit, then you can affirm. I release my need for disappointment. This will stimulate your subconscious to help you understand your need, which will lead to a change in behavior.

You can affirm the opposite of your emotional need also, such as I enjoy satisfaction. By repeating certain phrases, you can change the programming of your subconscious mind and create a more comfortable life.
