Visualizing Your Vision - i.e. BUILDING THE DREAM

OK, as promised, here is the idea from The Science of Success:

In one section of the book, after the author has told us how to create a new paradigm and visualize our success (you'll have to read the first few chapters to get that part), he tells us to "manifest your vision the same way you manifest your new paradigm - by using your willpower to focus on it exclusively and with laser-like intensity. The more frequently you do so, the more quickly it will manifest."

He says that in order to be the most successful, you should picture yourself actually living within the new paradigm at least once a day. And it doesn't work to watch yourself in the new paradigm - you actually have to be in it.

He suggests that the best time to do this visualization is right before you go to sleep, because your subconscious never sleeps.

So here's his suggestion from pages 77-78 in the book:

"First, let yourself relax as your head sinks into the pillow. Begin to feel yourself living your vision. Make it colorful and emotional. Be within the picture, not as an observer but as an active participant. Imagine yourself walking, talking, and feeling as if you already have your vision in physical form....Then hold that picture as you drift off to sleep. Your subconscious mind will take it and begin to work with it all night. That vibration will be sent out and the Law of Attraction will begin to bring those results into your life."


I don't know about you, but I'm game to try this. Let's see what we can manifest in our own lives. If you're really interested, let's start reading this book together and report what we're seeing.

After all "The box, the box, the box is on fire!!"

Jodee,
I LOVE the comment you made in your section about you where you work with people to do "riskful thinking" rather than "wishful thinking". You make so much sense!! I am touching 50 and have so many goals I would like to achieve (making up for lost time I guess). I'm sure my dreams are like many others in that I have goals for my business, my weight, my exercise, my home, etc. The concept of visualization makes SO much sense. I must admit the concept is new to me and a little out of my comfort zone
but it could really work. What do I have to lose by trying it right?!

Last summer I attended a conference in LA for "Women In Technology"
(WITI) last summer. While there, I had the awesome opportunity to
meet Marcia Wieder.

She and I spoke about overcoming fears to achieve our dreams.
Although my time with her was brief, I learned from "America's Dream Coach" about
the importance of stepping out of my comfort zone.
At that time I really did not know who this precious woman was
but later learned she had been on Oprah and PBS-TV.

Marcia's brief touch on my life made a great impact on me. Recently I
discovered her blog at http://www.dreamcoachdirect.com/ and
a Maui Dream Retreat she is giving away!!! I would LOVE to be able to
win that trip!!

I thought you and your readers might also be interested in her site.

Thank you again for sharing and I'll be back to visit your site. I am also going to purchase the book you recommended!!!

On a mission to make my dreams a reality.

Gina:

I am SO glad you stopped by and took the time to post such a thoughtful comment! Let's try this visualization game and report back on our progress. If you read any of the posts over the past week, you'll see I've been working to overcome my own self-imposed roadblocks. I'm ready to get in the game and make a difference!!

Let's keep in touch!

Jodee
