“An affirmation is a strong, positive statement that something is already so.” ~Shakti Gawain
We did a Matt and Phil Show On The Power of Creative Visualization: Listen to In the Mind’s Eye (Where Pigs CAN Fly!) here.
Do you visualize? I bet you do. Even if you are not aware of it, we humans do it all day long. Thinking about the future — who will be there, when will they be there, what it will be like, will we have traffic, will it be fun? Visualization can do amazing things for your business.
The Mind is always running, if we can channel that power into a creative visualization practice, in which we are seeing in our minds eye what we want to experience, then we will be bring it closer, while we simultaneously take steps towards it.
As we were exploring the concepts during the show, I made a mental note that I wanted to experiment with some creative visualization the next day. So, I did just that. I spent about 20 minutes reading Louise Hay Wealth Affirmations, picking the ones I liked most, and repeating them as I walked during a beautiful fall day with my iPod on. It felt great the whole time — no resistance to the practice, just breathing, walking, feeling the sun, repeating the affirmations with no real focus other than occasionally as I was doing the incantations I would picture in minds eye something that the words would inspire, such as someone handing me a check for a large sum of money for some marketing services rendered. Twenty minutes after I got back from walk I got a call from someone that I haven’t spoken to in a year who happened to have several thousand dollars of business for me. It was a very cool manifestation. However, the real sweet spot for me here was that I was experiencing desire for abundance as I was doing the work and visualizing, yet, I was never feeling like anything was missing either. I did not ‘need’ the abundance in that moment one bit. I was so enjoying nature and already receiving so much abundance — the fresh cool fall air, the sky, the small of leaves, the visions of them falling all around me. I was completely in my vortex, regardless of what did or didn’t happen with the abundance incantations.
This type of practice can really help your business, try it weekly and see if you can play it with it a few times a week, I find it really helps me to feel good and connected to my business.
I believe that this sweet spot of desiring without any attachment or need of the abundance to come through actually created a possibility that had a direct pathway to receiving it. I think I am going to commit to more creative visualization and abundance affirmations from Louise Hay!
By the way, there is an AMAZING book on this subject that I highly recommend: Creative Visualization by Shakti Gawain.
