Google is the world’s most popular search engine. When you type a word or phrase into its search function, you’re really asking a question: “Hey Google, can you answer this question for me?” It then automatically performs a search to answer what you asked.
Your mind works in exactly the same way. When you ask yourself a question—whether it’s an empowering question or a disempowering one—your mind automatically begins to search for the answer. This is what I call using Afformations, because Afformations are empowering questions that immediately change your thoughts from negative to positive.
However, there’s one big difference between your brain and Google: Google can’t change the questions that it’s asked. After you enter your query, Google can’t reply, “Nah, I don’t feel like answering that question right now; I’m going to answer this other question instead!” That’s because Google is a software program designed by human beings; it does not have a conscious choice.
But you do. You are a human being. You have the choice of what questions you are going to ask at any given moment. You can decide, right now, to ask an empowering or disempowering question. Your brain will find the answer either way.
If you go around asking negative, disempowering questions—whether you’re asking them consciously or subconsciously—your brilliant brain will find the answers. And guess what? The answers will show up as your very life.
Even if you don’t realize that you’re asking yourself disempowering questions—since you’re doing it at the subconscious level—your mind will still find reasons to make them true for you.
But there’s good news in all of this. In fact, there’s great news!
You are a human being with a human brain, which means that you have a choice. You’re able to choose what to think, what to say, and what to do. Because you have a choice, at any moment—even at this very moment—you have complete control to make these decisions.
This is one of the most miraculous aspects of your brilliant brain—you can change the questions you’re asking any time you want!
You can choose right now to start using Afformations and start asking empowering questions, even if you’ve been asking yourself disempowering questions for months, years, or even decades. That’s why using Afformations will change your life.
Noah’s Note: Once you start using Afformations, you never have to go back to asking disempowering questions again.
