IonaS's review
I was very disappointed with this book.

I had heard the author, Noah St. John, on a call on the net and heard him talk about afformations, which I found very exciting.

He asserted that affirmations don’t work, but that when you turn them into questions in the way he suggests, then they become very effective, and in fact dissolve your subconscious blocks. He called these questions afformations.

For instance, instead of reciting “I am rich” you need to say “Why am I so rich?”. Instead of “I am getting healthier and healthier” you should state “Why have I become healthier and healthier?” And so on.

But, unfortunately, I found this book so boring that I could hardly get through it. It had something to do with the author’s style of writing. The only thing I got out of it apart from the afformations was that he told us we can’t achieve anything by working on our own because we don’t really believe in ourselves, and it is therefore essential for us to find others who do so and will support us. There are chapters on “Loving Mirrors and Safe Havens” and “Systems of Support”.

I don’t know whether Noah St. John (cool name by the way) is correct in this assumption or not. Perhaps he is. I do much appreciate his afformations and have begun to use them.

I think his system may well work, if only you can manage to get through the book and find out what the system actually consists of.

But I can’t recommend the book. Perhaps the author’s little books on afformations are more readable. I would hope so. ( )
