affirmations are good, but still when I muscle test people/clients . The affirmation still says that the subconscious or you do not believe them. clearing out the trapped emotions removes the past blocks so you truly know that you believe them. Such as Natsha loved Natasha or I do my best and my nest is good enough, or I forgive natasha or I forgive others. All those blocks set up unwanted blocks/patterns. read the book called the emotion code by Dr Bradley Nelson.
