Welcome back to The becoming the big knee podcast. I'm your host

Speaker:

Djemilah Birnie and you are tuning into minute madness, a

Speaker:

little dose of epicness delivered in five minutes or

Speaker:

less.

Speaker:

Good morning, you guys, it's Djemilah Birnie here. So I was

Speaker:

just doing my morning affirmations and it triggered a

Speaker:

thought that I wanted to share with you. So have you ever felt

Speaker:

when you're doing your affirmations and you're doing

Speaker:

your I am statements and you're saying, you know, I am confident

Speaker:

or whatever your statement is, but you don't quite believe it

Speaker:

yet you don't quite believe that I am affirmation that you are

Speaker:

trying to say. So it feels off, it feels a little silly, or it

Speaker:

just doesn't feel right. Well, I've been there and I have a

Speaker:

trick that is going to help you. So the problem with just stating

Speaker:

those Im statements when you don't actually believe them is

Speaker:

you have cognitive dissonance happening where your brain is

Speaker:

like, well, I don't actually believe that. And so that's

Speaker:

going on in your brain as you're trying to instill these new

Speaker:

positive thoughts, these new positive affirmations into your

Speaker:

mind. So I want you to try this. If you're doing an affirmation

Speaker:

that you do not yet, believe yourself, there's a couple ways

Speaker:

to word it so that you can bypass that cognitive dissonance

Speaker:

and continue to rewire your brain. So what I do is, I am

Speaker:

learning to lean deeper into my intuition or each and every day,

Speaker:

I am becoming more patient or I am in the process of knowing

Speaker:

that wealth is that unlimited substance. So those are a couple

Speaker:

phrases that bypass that cognitive dissonance. And so you

Speaker:

can actually say your affirmations continue to rewire

Speaker:

your brain continue to have those benefits of affirmations

Speaker:

but get them through quicker just your standard I am

Speaker:

affirmations after enough time they are going to eventually

Speaker:

your subconscious mind is pretty lazy so eventually it's just

Speaker:

going to accept it as truth once you do it enough times. But I

Speaker:

have found that this process of saying I'm in the process of I

Speaker:

am learning each and every day I am becoming more bla bla bla

Speaker:

I have found that that helps so much in just making the process

Speaker:

that much faster because there's not that cognitive dissonance it

Speaker:

bypasses that bypasses the ego it bypasses all of that. And you

Speaker:

actually believe it you actually completely believe it in that

Speaker:

moment. And belief is the core of everything. That is what

Speaker:

we're trying to do is we're trying to swap that belief out

Speaker:

so when we actually believe it, it just becomes so much more

Speaker:

powerful. But anyways, I hope this tip helps you and let me

Speaker:

know your thoughts in the comments below.
