Call it Karma, the Law of Attraction, Cause and Effect, or whatever you want, but in all instances, the theory is the same – “that which you radiate, you will experience.”
Mental Imagery is a term that may be familiar to many as “visualisation”, “imagining the feel”, “hearing in my head” or “seeing in the mind’s eye.” Many people have great desires, but they shy aware from them because of the unbelief and uncertainty from others that is exposed onto them. For long now, I have always kept a small book in my pocket. Nobody has known about this book. It is what I call my “manifestation book” – everything I want to manifest into my life – desires for my business, health, wealth, family, friends, study, etc is all shared in that book. I make real notes on everything I want and take time to really get it into my mental imagery.
When I started this and shared my desires, I got a lot of negative feedback from individuals about how my desires are unachievable. Who do they think they are imposing on my personal ambitions? After that, I dropped the case and kept it my little book, and the speed at which success is manifesting in my life is absolutely great. In my pile of current reading is Catherine Ponder’s “The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity” and she speaks the same. I highly recommend this book – it’s made me lots of money!
Imagination is a much better motivator than will power. Every thing you have achieved in the past – whether it be financial gain or lack, health betterment or not, etc – has all happened because of a particular mental imagery you had created in your mind. And what you are doing in your present moment is exactly what your mental imagery has caused.
Mental Imagery is used in many aspects of society. Many sports such as golf, tennis and skating, not only require physical skills, but a strong mental game as well. Most coaches preach the line that sports are 90% mental and only 10% physical. Different uses of imagery in sport include: mental practice of specific performance skills, improving confidence and positive thinking, problem solving, controlling arousal and anxiety, performance review and analysis, preparation for performance, and maintaining mental freshness during injury.
I personally don’t believe there is any correct way to practice mental imagery, however there are some certain things I would like to share. When practicing mental imagery:
- Always play the situation as if it were happening right now. The subconscious mind has no understanding of the concept of time like the conscious mind has. By practicing mental imagery for the situation, the subconscious mind will experience it and then rush to work so that it can make it manifest for you.
- Be absolutely Clear. You must have clarity for what you want. To do this, seek to find what you don’t want and then understand what you really do want. It is this that you can then expand in detail during your mental imagery.
- Be absolutely honest. This is vital – ensure that in your visualisation, you are absolutely honest about what you want. Don’t shy away from what you want. No-one else apart from you will know.
- When complete, forget it all. When you reach a state of content and peace about your visualisation in that you have achieved satisfaction, simply forget it all and allow it to uncover in your life.
Let me share with you an example from my life.
A while back, I wrote myself out a cheque payable to myself, “Kavit Haria” of a certain amount that I wished to manifest (the amount is personal) and I signed it as a “Gift from the Universe.” I then placed it in my wallet where I knew I would see it often as I opened my wallet. In the coming days, I spent time thinking about and visualising the sum I wanted, and then forgot about it. In the following weeks, I really saw various avenues for revenue, gifts, free journey rides and much more appear into my life. It was absolutely great – I got some new clothes, I got a full two-day seminar offered free, the bus driver didn’t ask me to pay for several journeys and I even got some new clients for my business.
Here’s something you can do to attract money…
Cut several pieces of paper into the shape of your currency notes. Write out onto them a particular amount as reflected in your nation’s currency, or even make it up. Get creative – these are your new currency notes. Keep these in your wallet, where you can see them regularly. Each day, spend just a few minutes, really focusing on how it feels that you have that money as if it were real. Follow the tips above too! You must have commitment – it could or could not be an overnight thing. The universe will respond, just you wait and see…
