By visualising, you get to make your own movies. Actually, it’s better than that because you can cast anyone, set it anywhere in the world (or beyond) and you can make it about anything you want with no pesky producers breathing down your neck. And! The more you do it, the more you’ll see these fantasy worlds seep into reality in magical, surprising, delicious ways. By now you should know the reason for that. Here’s a hint: three words to describe one powerful law. The law of attraction of course! You attract what you think about and the stronger your feelings while doing so, the faster this happens. When your visualisations have the production value of a summer blockbuster, you are magnetising everything at car-chase speeds.
Not only that but visualising the things you want is great fun. You get to enjoy your hopes and wishes without having to worry about any of their real world consequences. Say you’ve been wanting a dog for years and years and you finally get one and you’re all excited. That’s great! But I guarantee there will be days when you’ll wish you didn’t have to walk him. In your mind, however, you get to create a dog that stays a puppy forever, poops rainbows and you only have to walk him when you feel like it. So don’t be in a hurry to get your goodies. Enjoy the manifestation process because it has its own beauty.
Now for some tips. In The Secret (a very important film by the way!), they suggest doing everything you can to get close to the experience you want. At one point, a guy, let’s call him Bob, wants a car. So they recommend test driving the specific car to get a feel for it. For our puppy example, maybe you know someone who has a dog that’s the same breed as the one you want. Why not set up a play date with the dog or join in when the owner takes her for a walk?
In The Secret, we then see Bob visualising his dream. He’s got his eyes closed, he’s pretending to drive the car and his whole body gets involved. Bob’s got his hands on the “steering wheel” and everything. He’s so deeply into the experience that you would see the wind rushing through his hair if he wasn’t bald. This brings us to the second point. When you are making your mind movie, try to make the experience as full as you can. Involve your senses. What does your dream smell like? Taste like? Feel like? What do you hear? It’s not just what you see that matters when you are visualising. When you can feel the silky fur of your puppy and hear its bark, it won’t be long before you have a real life puppy to call your own.
Give movie making a try. You will enjoy it and you will like the results you see in your life. Unless you are directing a horror film…
