Yeah the numerology bit that was related really made no sense to me why it was in there and I really don't think it has any bearing. Dropping negative words is a basic practice simply because our own brains don't recognize negative words like NOT or NON or the contractions that are negatives, cannot, can't, don't, won't. So doing affirmations like I don't smoke, our brains translate into I smoke. Negative words don't carry much weight energetically for us in this regard of changing things. Also words that are more like questions don't work as well either like, "when I am free of smoking" what carries more weight are statements something like, "I am smoke free"
This has been such an ingrained practice for me that I don't even realize I'm doing it and funny thing is it carries into my professional life. We have been working on a project at work and having a lot of meetings to hash it all out. Twice a week we have question and answer group meetings and I said, "I have a question." and one of my co-workers said, "You never have questions, you make statements and give directions." LOL whoops. But...she's right. All that training.
