Are you visualizing from a point of lack?
Good day. Today I want to take a closer look at one of the most important tools we have to achieve success. It is something that no one can take away from us. Every one of us has it, regardless of our background, race, color, origin. Weather our parents are rich or poor. Weather we went to a good school or never went to school. I am talking about the ability to visualize.
No matter who you talk to, if they are successful in anything they do, they have or are visualizing at some point or another. Sports athletes do it all the time to enhance their performance. In fact in the 80’s there were experiments performed on Olympic track and fields athletes in which they were to run their race in their mind alone. The electromyogram attached showed the same set of muscles fired at the same time in the same order as if they were running the race on the track.
Business moguls do it all the time. Sales reps, CEOs, investors use visualization to prepare and get focused.
Visualization is a big part of how The Law of Attraction works as well. If you have not read my previous posts on The Law of Attraction or my book Road Map to Life I suggest clicking on the posts on the side of the page that explains the basics of the law of attraction or reading my book to get familiar with the concepts.
How we visualize however, is very important. As we have discussed It is the feelings and emotions that fuel the power of The Law of Attraction brining into reality opportunities for us to achieve successes we have visualized. So it is critical that your visualization is not coming from a place of lack and scarcity, or sense of loss.
For example if you are visualizing a particular car for example but at the same time you have this longing for it that is placing your energy on the feeling that “I want it because I don’t have it” then you are setting up resistance to the manifestation of the opportunities that would bring that car into your reality. It is a subtle point but a very important one. I believe this is the main reason why Bob Proctor, an authority on The Law of Attraction suggest starting your visualization and the written statements with “I am so happy and grateful now that…” The power of gratitude is very powerful in negating the feeling of lack and longing. Keep this in mind when you are visualizing the next great sale, or the next great relationship, or the next goal.
Keep the feelings on what you do want and also be mindful that your feeling are not coming from scarcity. That is why you need to do your visualization and work with The Law of Attraction when you are in a calm state of mind free from distraction and at least in a neutral state of mind if not in a sense of grateful joy. As with everything else this is a skill that you can master by practice. As you work on this you will get better and better with your visualization and this should catapult your results to a new height. Next week I will go into more detail on how to visualize so you are not coming from a sense of lack.
Wishing for your continued success. Feel free to share this with anyone you think can benefit from it.
