Some of these tools were mentioned in the movie The Secret. Others were not. Since each tool has pertinent information and resources around each one, an article series has been created to keep you abreast of new tools and techniques that I come across in my research.
There’s always so much to learn and find out, so this series is being created for those who need a little more information and direction before they haul off into a frenzy of buying one tool after the next. I encourage you to try and incorporate in your life what you resonate with the most. Most of the tools are free and pretty simple to implement and should be practiced the best way you know how. Start where you are.
The first tool I’m going to focus on in this article series is Visualization. This seems like an obvious one for most people, but it goes a little bit deeper then just being able to see a dream in your head. We can see a vision in our head, and unless it feels real, what we see isn’t going to manifest according to what we want to see physically.
Why is this so? It’s because the Law of Attraction responds to feeling. How emotionally charged are you around your visualizations? Your perception is what’s going to have the most vivid and matching impact on your desire.
What you visualize is totally up to you. It doesn’t have to be material. It can be world peace, an absolutely green planet, healthy children, a restored ozone layer, new developments in autism research. The sky is limitless. It only matters your perception; how you shape this reality that you are creating for yourself.
We forget how powerful the mind is and that the very chemicals that are released by our brains through thought and emotion are what causes certain things to happen. This is the reason you hear about the cancer patient whose unwavering faith in God helped their healing manifest.
You hear the story of a young boy who is legally blind become an award winning wide receiver. This is the same reason you hear about the Miracle Man, whose bones were shattered in a plane crash, sentenced to life as a vegetable by the doctors, yet walked out of the hospital eight months later.
Visualization is a tool that is being activated through daydreaming or sitting down and writing out goals that you “see” for yourself.
Another quite fun and effortless way to use the visualization tool is to create a vision or dream board. Anything can be placed on this board from words, pictures of places and people, colorful shapes, houses, money, or virtually anything that makes you bubble over with excitement whenever you look at it. The key is to feel as if those items on your vision board you’re experiencing them now.
It doesn’t really help to continue to visualize the future as “the future.” Literally see your future-self in the “now.” This is a key step to making the tool of visualization successfully work for you.
Proactively use your mind to put the pieces together that you want to see happen in your lifetime. Even if it doesn’t happen while you’re physically alive, by virtue of the Law of Attraction, it will happen. The late civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have a Dream“ speech reminds us of this.
