The exercise of the visualizing faculty keeps your mind in order, and attracts to you the things you need to make life more enjoyable in an orderly way. If you train yourself in the practice of deliberately picturing your desire and carefully examining your picture, you will soon find that your thoughts and desires proceed in a more orderly procession than ever before.
Having reached a state of ordered mentality, you are no longer in a constant state of mental hurry. Hurry is Fear, and consequently destructive. In other words, when your understanding grasps the power to visualize your heart’s desire and hold it with your will, it attracts to you all things requisite to the fulfillment of that picture by the harmonious vibrations of the law of attraction.
You realize that since Order is Heaven’s first law, and visualization places things in their natural order, then it must be a heavenly thing to visualize.
Everyone visualizes, whether he knows it or not. Visualizing is the great secret of success. The conscious use of this great power attracts to you multiplied resources, intensifies your wisdom,and enables you to make use of advantages which you formerly failed to recognize. – Genevieve Behrend, Your Invisible Power
BOY, have we learned a lesson on the power of visualization over the past month. Angie and I both have our visions for our future and goals (both personal and professional visions) written down and recorded on digital voice recorders. We listen to them as soon as our eyes open each morning and the last thing before they close at night. It is amazing at how powerfully focused we become when we do this.
Well, last month we took a trip to Florida and went to some trainings and some aspects of the vision(s) changed – to the point that we didn’t want to listen to the previous parts of the vision that was on our recordings. As we played catch-up from our trip, we kept trying to set aside time to re-record the new vision/goals but it seemed to keep getting delayed.
We both noticed an incredible drop in our energy levels and focus once we stopped listening to our recordings. So, we committed to make the time to re-record – regardless of what else might have to be put aside to make the time. It has been quite the experiment and it’s only been a couple of days since we re-recorded and -WHAM! – We’re Back Baby!!! There is such power in hearing your vision and your goals in your voice, as if it has already happened.
I encourage all of you to try this – write your vision down on paper in as much detail as you possibly can muster – see it, feel it, hear it, touch it, taste it (if you can) – write it in the present tense as if you are already living that life. THEN, get a digital voice recorder and record what you wrote – animate it – bring it to life. And then, LISTEN to it morning and night, every single day!! See if it doesn’t make a difference over time and focus you more intently on what you really want! I’d love to hear your experiences!!
