Self-Improvement - Manifesting
Are You Visualizing "Out There" Or From Within?
Does visualizing create a challenge for you?
Many people visualize by looking at their goals "out there" on the
screen of space in their imagination or on "dream" or vision boards.
This article will explain the most powerful way to visualize and the
fastest way to manifest results — visualizing from "within."
Let's discuss a bit about visualizing...
Visualize: to see or form a mental image of
let me start by noting that some people cannot visualize in mental
pictures. There is nothing wrong with this — it's just the way their
brains function. But they can visualize by "feeling" the reality of the
goal they wish to attain. In fact, I believe that the feeling aspect of
imagining is much more powerful and magnetic than the picturing aspect.
can feel the emotions even if you cannot see images. What is important
for you to know is that your subconscious mind cannot tell the
difference between a real and an imagined act.
you can make mental pictures or gather specific details and create a
vision board to establish your goals in your subconscious mind. These
techniques are often recommended as a way to condition the
subconscious, and they have some benefit. They will encourage you to
focus on what you want.
However, I have a very different
opinion about visualization which, for our purposes, will include both
the picturing and feeling aspects.
Let's say you close
your eyes to see yourself achieving a goal. You see yourself "out
there" on the screen of space, watching yourself going through the
motions, almost like watching a movie.
Or you make your
vision board, dream board, or treasure map or whatever you wish to call
it. You are looking at items on this board that you wish to possess or
you may have pictures of yourself on this board doing or being what you
want. However, you are still looking at yourself "out there."
this may have some benefit, especially if visualizing in this way
produces in you a corresponding feeling of having what you want.
However, I don't believe visualizing in this way generally produces the
results you really want.
Here is an example. ..One of my
students was practicing manifesting a new Cadillac Escalade. He
focused on photos of the exact model and color of the car he wanted. In a very
short time, he posted that he was excited and thought he was
manifesting the car because he saw eleven of the exact models around
his city. I replied simply, "But is there one in your garage?" To
which he responded... "That's why you're the teacher and I'm the

visualize from "within." You are the actor in the role, seeing the
world through your own eyes, looking out at the world as if you already
are what you want to be or already possess what you desire. You assume
this role and "live" in this consciousness over and over until it feels
natural to you. As you rehearse this role, your subconscious will
accept it and it will become your natural state of being. You will take
on the mental and emotional state of the end result and then...at just
the right moment you will experience this reality in the outer world.
The outer world must conform to what you have accepted inwardly.
It's Already Mine
So here is the difference. Let's use "Bev" as an example with a relatively simple desire.
Bev wants a new digital camera.
can picture the camera she wants. She can paste up photos, study it in
detail and commit the image to memory. She may even suddenly see these
cameras all over the place. But will she accept subconsciously that
this camera is hers? Maybe.
Or Bev can play the role.
Become the actress holding the camera up to her eyes, feel herself
focusing "her" camera on her subject, maybe even feel the slight weight
of the camera in the carrying case as it swings against her as she
walks. She can close her eyes and feel herself placing her camera in
its spot on her shelf at home. If Bev were not able to make mental
pictures clearly, then all she would need to do is create the feeling
that she already possessed her camera — the feeling of satisfaction of
owning the camera. Not desiring or wanting it...because if you already
have something, then you wouldn't desire or want it, would you?
the actor in the role, playing the part of being, doing, having
whatever it is you want, from the inside out. From within your own
consciousness, you already are that person, you are already doing what
you want, you already have what you desire.
That is true visualization.
Interesting Update From the Real "Bev"
2006 I posted this article on my former Feel Free to Prosper Network. One hour
later, who showed up to post a reply? The real Bev — Beverley Hanna,
the Feel Free to Prosper student and fine artist who actually used this
technique to manifest a new camera. Bev expanded on my article by
adding her own valuable tips for increasing your visualizing ability.
