That's a very powerful affirmation. Sounds like it's working for you in your life, unfortunately.

haha well you're allowed to dream buddy... just don't call it an affirmation :P

apparently the word affirmation was invented in the early 15th century and it's original meaning was - "assertion that something is true"... so yeah... i guess that explains itself

Not sure what the ?? and !! is all about, I was simply pointing out that you believe it's all pointless. And you also say things like "We're already in hell," and "Being spiritual is hogwash." Your attitude and beliefs appear to be working for you. And I say unfortunately because it doesn't sound like you're particularly happy in life.

those are question marks and exclamation marks... punctuation of sorts

when you see the world for the lie that it really is... and i sincerely hope you never do... then you may begin to understand why i would use such words

attitude and beliefs have nothing to do with it... if i have false beliefs that we live in a utopia... that wouldn't change anything... i would simply be lying to myself and why would i want to do that? i could affirm that to myself over and over again but hey... i would just be wasting my time... affirmations are a hoax

Welcome to Spiritual Forums.

My friend, what is "pointless" (and hilarious) is outright telling people in a forum category about Affirmations to not use them, when it is certain that almost 100% of the people who generally post in this category have a great interest in them, and also that your message is self-contradictory,

Because you just used an affirmation yourself; you affirmed something that you feel is true (to some degree), that being "Affirmations don't work, it's pointless."

An affirmation, at its root, is simply a statement of belief/conviction, or something that is wanted. People affirm all the time, whether one realizes it or not.

When someone says, "I love you," that is an affirmation. When someone simply thinks something to be true, or something that they desire, this is an affirmation." For example, when a person thinks or feels, "I would like a new car," that is an affirmation.

Affirmations work 100%, but not how you and many people assume they would or should work. They are really intended to give a person a feeling, and that is what thoughts do, we have feeling-responses to our thoughts, and thoughts are indeed energy.

Affirmations work by helping people focus their energy on what they desire. They set forces into motion. Thought, desire, belief and feeling are connected, are forms of energy.

Of course, taking physical action is a valid part of the manifestation process. However, most people do not realize that the act of thinking thoughts is also a subtle form of action. This is a scientific fact, that thinking thoughts is something that affects brain chemistry, as well as the entire body system.

You said:

You're right, it explains itself, and it also explains what you essentially did yourself with your assertion that "Affirmations don't work," which is something that you asserted to be true, as well as your similar assertion, "It's pointless," which you also asserted to be true.

You're doing a fantastic job of proving how effective affirmations can be:

Your assumption that they "don't work" is giving you a perception, a world-view, that shows you "proof" that they "don't work."
