Over the last two weeks, I have spent much time discussing how you are worthy. I have provided affirmations to help you build a deep inner feeling of your worthiness. On a recent Skype, the discussion was centered around how long does it take for a positive affirmation to replace a negative thought since the negative thoughts have existed for a long time. Here is how the discussion went.
Before going into the discussion, in case you missed the last two posts, here they are:

Okay. Here we go. As expressed in those two posts, if you look deeply inside yourself in your heart and soul, in your essence, what you will find as an inherent part of your nature are abundant health, love, joy, happiness, compassion, forgiveness, and gratitude. They are what is real.
If you look deeply inside yourself in your heart and soul, in your essence, what you will NOT find as an inherent part of your nature are fear, worry, anger, frustration, resentment, emotional stress, anxiety, self-criticism, self-judgment, and self-hatred. They are NOT what is real. They are merely thoughts. They are vapor.
In my conversation, I said to the person, think about this, you have been telling yourself for 65 years that you are not allowed to be happy. The positive affirmations will un-seat the “not allowed to be happy” and replace it with “allowed to be happy.” He said, but I am 75 and do not have another 65 years to make this happen. I said, okay, it will not take that long; let’s use an example.
“You have been brushing your teeth every day for 70 years with your right hand, correct?” He said “yes.” Okay.
“Now, suppose starting tomorrow, you take your toothbrush, place it in your left hand, put your right hand behind your back, and brush your teeth. Will you be able to do this.” He said “yes.”
“Okay, if you do this every day, how long do you think it will take until you walk into the bathroom, pick up the toothbrush with your left hand, and brush your teeth.”
He said, “two or three weeks.”
“Okay, then as you can see, you replaced a 70-year habit within two or three weeks by the repetition of the new habit.”
Why does this work so quickly? Because when you are brushing your teeth using your left hand, that is what is real. Right-hand brushing ceases to exist in the moment, and left-hand brushing becomes the new habit.
So, when you are faced with years of feeling unworthy, do not despair. The positive affirmations contained in the two previous posts can un-seat years of negative feelings in a rather short amount of time. How is this possible? Love is REAL. Fear is VAPOR.
When you deeply and repeatedly feel what is real, the vapor simply evaporates and disappears. What is real has substance. What is vapor has no actual existence. The negative thoughts are nothing more than a story you have been telling yourself. The negative thoughts are repeating to yourself other people’s words; they are not even your own words, at least not in their origin. The negative thoughts are an illusion of unworthiness.
The positive emotions are feelings that are real. They have been buried under whatever story you have been telling yourself about how you are supposed to be existing in this world, how perfect you need to be, how unworthy you are, and how your best is not good enough. Living in the positive emotions overtakes the negative thoughts because it brings you back to reality.
That’s right…brings you back to reality…what is happening right here, right now, in this moment, that is what is real. And what do you feel in your essence? Abundant health, love, joy, happiness, compassion, forgiveness, and gratitude. The negative emotions do not exist in the present…they are judgments of the past and fears about the future…they do not exist right here, right now, in this moment. They are not real.
That is why the positive affirmations will get rid of years of negative thoughts in a rather short amount of time. Reality evaporates vapor every time. So, let’s all get together and stay in the moment, this moment, right here, right now, and feel what is real.
THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU!!!
