Here is a definition taken from the site bayart.org,
What is Affirmation
#Affirmations are sentences aimed to affect the conscious and the subconscious mind. The words composing the affirmation, automatically and involuntarily, bring up related mental images into the mind, which could inspire, energize and motivate. Repeating affirmations, and the resultant mental images, affect the subconscious mind, which in turn, influences the behavior, habits, actions and reactions.
This definition would not make any sense to a person reading this. Your mind is you. You are a body mind. You are a mind, you are. body. The body is a mind. This applies to your eternal self outside the physical. There is your attention, your conscious awareness and your subtle awareness, like out of the corner of your eye. You are not plit into a subconscious mind and conscious mind. So, logically, here is the translation.
Affirmations are aimed to affect the awareness and mind of the human being, human body. The words bring up images into the awareness of the human being (body), using its head as its focus of awareness, which it is not. Its awareness stems from its entire being, the body, its mind. These images are meant to inspire it to action. Because who would deliberately put an image into their own awareness to inspire themselves? No one. The intent is to effect the body/mind, consciousness of the unaware human being so that it does what you want in order to get the story you want while playing a character role you want.
For further reference, research #zombieapocolypse because no one of your (the possessing ‘mind’) kind will tell the truth about how this effects the ‘people’ doing this.
