Words are vibrations of thought. Thoughts are vibrations of power and
energy. Strong words or commands, such as "Wake up," uttered feebly without
the background of latent vigorous force, are meaningless. Hence, when you
mechanically affirm, "I am prosperous," but in the background of your mind
you think, "I am always poor, and I am going to remain so. What is the use
of prosperity affirmations anyway?" then, of course, no results will be
forthcoming.

In affirming for any desired end, you must free yourself again and again of
all devastating negative thoughts. Thought is the force which runs the
complicated cellular machinery of the body as well as the machinery of human
destiny and the entire Cosmos. Thoughts carry on all the chemical,
psychological, and metabolistic functions of the body. The thoughts of the
general public, and of politicians especially, shape the destiny of the
national machinery.

If you are angry and affirm with anger in your heart, "I am peace, I am
peace," your parroting peace will mean nothing, but instead you will develop
more anger. If you affirm, "I am rich," with a belief that you will never be
rich, you will remain poor. Your negative thoughts will keep you paralyzed,
impotent, and unable to initiate the right modus operandi which will yield
you the desired result.

Thinking on God keeps the Cosmos in balance and rhythm. Hence, the right
thoughts expressed in rightly uttered words will set up rhythmic etheric
vibrations and initiate proper actions in the affirming individual and in
all circumstances connected with the successful attainment of the desired
result.

First, sit calmly. Quiet the fanciful, subconscious mind. Stop the conscious
mind from being restless. Induce the all-powerful superconsciousness by
meditating deeply. Then make the following affirmations in groups or
singlely, loudly or in whispers, or mentally. All affirmations must be
impregnated with ever-increasing devotion and concentration with each
repetition.

A mechanical repetition is taking the name of God in vain. It is like you
are thinking of going to a picture show while you are uttering "God" again
and again. To utter "God" once with devotion, and to increase the devotion
with each repetition of the word, is to keep sinking deeper in the ocean of
power, until you reach the bottom of God's perception.

When you utter "God" again and again, forgetting time and with
ever-increasing devotion, and when your consciousness forgets itself in
affirming, at that point you will feel the presence of God. In group
affirmations it is best to repeat a sentence. Let one person utter it or
explain its meaning, and let him advice his colleagues of the uselessness of
mechanical utterance of words without thinking of their corresponding
meaning.

Most people in a church choir sing with concentration on the music and on
the glory of captivating their listeners and extracting cheers and praise
from them, but they think little of the One to whom they are singing the
song. Such singers never think of God, to whom the song or anthem is
addressed. Hence, in group singing, the leader must see to it that his
colleagues do not mechanically grind out a song louder and louder,
emotionally and unthinkingly.

The devotional thought in a song must be predominating, while the sound of
the words in producing that song must meekly, gently, and softly follow the
increasingly warm thought.

All affirmations repeated by a group may be started loudly or softly, but
must end in chanting them mentally for some time in silence, until the words
change into vibratory messengers of thought let loose in the ether to
execute their desired errands. Individuals would do better to start
affirmations in a whisper, or mentally, and with deep, ever-increasing
mental affirmations.

First, affirm for wisdom and bliss, then for harmony, then for health, then
for true happiness for all mankind. Affirmations remind the soul of what it
already has, and what it does not have because of forgetfulness. They are
statements of Truth, and are different from begging prayers.. Beggars seldom
get what they want from the Father, but a reformed son, trying to remember
that he is a "Son of God," can, by means of affirmations, have anything
through the proper application of the vibratory law.

A few examples of affirmations*:

I am well, for Thou are present in all my body parts.

I will spread the sunshine of goodwill wherever the darkness of
misunderstanding lies.

I am the prince of peace sitting on the throne of poise, directing the
kingdom of activity.

*from Metaphysical Meditations 1932
