Your Invisible Power
When you believe what you say, you just created it, no matter what it is.
The effective use of affirmations depends entirely on how much you believe them when you say them. If there is no belief, then the affirmation (including the mantras that you chant daily) is just words without power. Belief adds power to words you are chanting.
In every word (mantra) you use, there is a power germ which expands and projects itself in the direction your word (mantra) indicates, and ultimately develops into physical expression.
For example, you wish the consciousness of joy. Repeat the word ‘joy’ secretly, persistently, and emphatically. The repetition of the word ‘joy’ sets up a quality of vibration which causes the joy germ to begin to expand and project itself until your whole being is filled with joy. This is not a mere fancy, but a truth.
