Lesson on the word, “Don’t”
Our behaviors and outcomes are determined by the representations we create and imagine in our minds. When we precede a statement with the word, don’t, as in “Don’t think of a blue elephant,” for example, our unconscious mind negates the negative in don’t, and creates an image of what we were not supposed to think of. How big is your blue elephant?
This is also true with creating our desired outcomes in life. Oftentimes, we will have thoughts or make statements regarding what we don’t want to happen, and our creative unconscious mind will create the imagery of what we wanted to avoid, making it more likely to occur. Especially if you believe in the law of attraction, you will want to make statements, or affirmations, which are positive and directed toward your desired outcomes so your subconscious mind will help you to accomplish them.
