Affirmations are a powerful tool to unpick negative thought patterns. I think almost everyone has some sort of negative association with money and deserving abundance. I like to use affirmations to restructure my thought patterns into more useful, positive ones. Even on the most basic level, affirmations will help you to get into a better frame of mind.
A few years ago, I remember watching a TV programme about luck. They were trying to find out what made some people seemingly ‘luckier’ than others. Were they blessed by Jupiter? Rather, the TV programme showed a few experiments they did to explore this concept. They found something interesting. The people who considered themselves ‘lucky’ were just more open to opportunities. In contrast to those participants who considered themselves ‘unlucky’ were less open to opportunities. The universe is trying to provide you with opportunities but many of us simply dismiss them.
