Coué method to improve your life: conscious autosuggestion with daily affirmations: Conscious autosuggestion with daily affirmations

Conscious Autosuggestion

Émile Coué defined the concept of Conscious Autosuggestion in the second half of the 19th century, which was called the Coué Method over time.

The principle of Conscious Autosuggestion indicates that we can suggest our mind to improve our perception and our way of experiencing reality, for which our life progressively improves naturally.

The affirmations that you make consciously with the Coué Method suggest your subconscious mind to correct or transform your automatic thoughts, your attitude, your behavior and your expectations of life and the reality that you experience.

Other terms to name conscious affirmations are: "self-admonitions" and "self-admonitions", although they are not appropriate due to the negative charge they carry.

If you convince yourself that you are capable of achieving something concrete, no matter how difficult it is, you will achieve it. In the same way, if you imagine not being able to achieve something (even the simplest thing in the world), you will find it totally impossible to achieve it and you will turn a mere grain of sand into an impassable mountain.
— Émile Coué

The power of repetition

Coué demonstrated that the constant repetition of his affirmation, backed by faith in its efficacy, makes it a reality.

Do you remember how you learned a tongue twister or a poem?
— By repetition.

Do you know why a musical melody stays in your head?
— By repetition.

Do you know how a brand drives you to buy its products?
— Using advertising in a suggestive and repetitive way.

Repetition is at the heart of our lives and it is not by chance: it is because it works as a mental programming mechanism. So why not repeat positive affirmations every day and use autosuggestion to become what you affirm in those sentences?

The use of affirmations is based on the Principle of Full Attention: You can only think focused on one thing at a time, and any thought that uniquely occupies our mind will become something true.

The Coué Method

The Coué Method, also called the Coué Formula, is a method of healing and personal development based on Conscious Autosuggestion. It consists of the conscious repetition of the famous Coué Affirmation as a mantra, following a simple procedure.

«Perhaps you consider this remedy, which is the same for everyone, too easy and simple; but keep in mind that if you think you are sick, you will be; and if you think that you are curing, indeed, you will be cured. And it will not be hope, but this same certainty that will make you achieve it.
— Émile Coue

The Coué Affirmation

The fundamental basis of the Coué Affirmation is progressive and constant improvement. Its original version in French is: "Je vais bien, tout va très bien". The English translation is the most popular and well-known: "Everyday in every way I'm getting better and better". The Spanish version varies depending on the translator.

I share the most appropriate ways, from my point of view, so that you choose the one that makes the most sense for you:

Translation of the original in French:

"I'm fine, everything is fine."

Common translations:

"Every day, in every way, I am better and better."
"Day by day, in every way, I am getting better."
"Every day, I am improving a little more in all aspects."


In the morning and at night perform the following procedure:

  • With full will, sit in a relaxed position with your eyes closed. Avoid at all costs thinking about your discomforts, illnesses and problems.
  • Repeat 20 times, in a monotonous tone, the magic words that you have chosen as "Coué Affirmation", for example: "Every day in every way, I am better and better".
  • You must feel absolute faith that your statement is a reality. Print confidence, certainty, gratitude and emotion.
  • Considering the high receptivity of the subconscious (or suggestibility) generated by Alpha Brain Waves, I recommend performing the procedure at the beginning of the day, after waking up and at the end of the day, before going to sleep.
