All I know is that if something just wasn't meant to be according to your karma, no amount of affirming it to be so is going to make it so. Thus, I don't know how far I am willing to believe in this when karma says otherwise.

If it's not something you are relating to, believing in, and resonating with, it probably won't work, you'll know when you get that nice feeling, i suggest people write their own affirmations in positive clear wording that makes sense to them and record them in their own voice.

Saying "affirmations doesn't work" is like saying "catharsis doesn't work". Actually both work. In psychology, we see sometimes a debate, and even a conflict, between cognitive approaches, and psychoanalysis. (bad) cognitivists say "analysis doesn't work", to wich (bad) analysts reply "cognitivism doesn't work". Actually, not only both work, but they work even better combined. Combined doesn't mean mixed, though.

Same in spirituality, and holistic approaches. If we see the practices in two, there is mostly magic and mysticism. Both work very strongly, Especially if combined in a balanced way. Going even further you see that they both actually include the other part as well, while still keeping it separate. Think about it as in the symbol of the Tao. There is the Yin, the Yang, the Yin of Yang, and the Yang of Yin. All 4 are at the same time combined, and separate.

That's the most powerful approach.

It's your life, your mind, and your choice. What you believe really has nothing to do with what's true for anyone else.

If chanting a few sentences you don't believe in a few times a day didn't work for you, try making every single thought and every word that comes out of your mouth 24 hours a day congruent with what you want in life. All day every day. See how that works for you. Affirmations are great examples of ways that you can think and speak for your own benefit, but they don't do the work for you and make sure your thoughts, words, and actions always line up. You have to do that.
