The Missing Nuances of Visualizing

This is the second in the series of articles about the missing nuances in manifesting. If you want to truly master the art of manifestation you must include some subtle details that I have noticed are missing from many courses and teachings about the law of attraction.

Today I wish to discuss the art of visualizing. Just about every client that I discuss visualizing with is making this one subtle mistake.

They are seeing themselves as separate from themselves within their visualization. For instance I had a wheelchair bound client who wanted to walk again. She explained to me that when she visualized, she would observing herself walking down the street as if she were separate from her body. It was as if she were floating above and watching herself walk down the street.

I explained to her that she must experience herself walking down the street. She must be in her body feeling her legs move, feeling the muscles in her legs working, feeling the sidewalk beneath her feet, and feeling her arms swinging. Visualizing is much more than just seeing, it’s having the experience mentally so that you may have it physically as well.

Please read that last paragraph again.

As you imagine having the physical experience you want to add the emotions that you feel from having the experience. It’s the emotions that add the strength to your visualization. For my above client she would have been elated, excited, confident, and proud to be walking again.

According to brain scientists including Dr. Joe Dispenza from “What the Bleep Do We Know” the brain does not know the difference between what is imagined and what we physically experience. That is why when Australian psychologist Alan Richardson obtained the following results in the following experiment using basketball players.

Dr. Richardson took three groups of basketball players and tested their ability to make free throws. The first group he told to practice their free throws for 20 minutes everyday, the second group he told not to practice at all and the third group he told to visualize making free throws for 20 minutes a day.

After the allotted time (I don’t know the exact amount of time) he retested their abilities. The first group improved by 24%, the second group that did not practice at all unsurprisingly did not improve at all, but the third group that only visualized making free throws improved by 23%!!! They took no action but to experience it in their minds.

I love this!

This is the same concept for what ever it is you want to experience. Suppose you want to receive a sum of money. You must experience yourself having that money. If you try to imagine receiving it you may get bogged down in how and where it’s going to come from. That is not for you to do. So imagine having it, maybe making the deposit. Feel the deposit slip and the check in your hand, seeing the amount of the check and your name on the check, filling out the deposit slip, handing it to the teller, etc. Feel the physical sensations. Then allow yourself to feel the emotional sensations. First you will probably feel the excitement of having the money, but then ultimately it will be the peace of mind you feel knowing that you are taken care of. Let that peace build and multiply. Now even after you finish your mental experience keep that sense of peace.

Keep your visualization short. You may choose to mentally experience the first thing you do when you receive that sum of money. Like deposit it, pay off bills, etc. Whatever it is keep it short, that way your mind doesn’t have time to wander.

Keeping the sense of peace with you is also key for you to create exactly what it is you want. This may take some practice and persistence, but there is another law at work here. It is the Law of Reversibility, which states simply if a sum of money can bring you peace of mind then peace of mind can bring you a sum of money. This is due to the fact that fear repels and peace attracts.

As a recap:

1. Guide yourself into self-hypnosis (first in the series of articles)
2. Mentally experience (don’t just be the observer) your desired out come (keep it short)
3. Feel the emotions through the excitement to the peace of mind
4. Retain that peace of mind, knowing that it is already done
