I want you to start seriously to develop your visualising powers.
Visualising powers also help you to improve your memory out of all knowledge, but that is quite minor compared to the role it plays in manifesting your destiny. Visualisation’s importance has been celebrated since first human existence. All religion is based on it. Sport and battle is won and lost by it and, visualisation differentiates the insane from the sane. Mental health is conditional on it. And research has shown, it is the core ingredient of healing. Finally, it will be shown that visualising makes or breaks relationships. Children grow up on the wrong side of the track because of it and you hear people speak of it over and over when they say “I’m looking forward to ….. “ They have visualised something in the future that isn’t here yet and already their mind and body is in a state of excitement. Their chemistry has changed even though, nothing material has happened yet.
All business leadership is based on visualisation. Not just your own vision of the future, but the vision you engender for others determines whether they are “looking forward” or “not interested and therefore looking back” – And this is all, 100% based on what you create in the form of a mental vision.
The one starting point for this blog post and training for you is to accept right now:
“A visualisation, if persistently held in your mind, will assuredly manifested self in your life.”
This is true. But you might not wish to think it true. So, it is important right now to understand that negative visualisation “fear, guilt, anger, sadness, jealousy, envy, hate” are all negative visualisations. If you are on a fun ride at the fairground, and you are about to do the 360 loop ride, your fear is based on a vision of what it’s going to be like. So, fear and visualisation are partners and what you fear comes near. Another example of negative visualisation is nervousness before an event. The event hasn’t happened yet but you might have a mental image of what might go wrong. Isn’t that mental image a visualisation? If you do the same speech and make the same mistakes and blunders in the speech with a different mental visualisation of doing the speech, the entire experience and quality of your enjoyment will be different. Visualisation is, at the heart of life, fulfilment, health and success. So, why do we not speak of it in mind training?
It is because visualisation is a speaking movie in your mind. The images have people and those people speak. We hear our beliefs echoed in the visualisation. So, step one in visualisation is to get how we speak to ourselves into a healthy space. Our beliefs and it’s voice, the ego, must be engaged in conscious visualisation. There’s no use having one part of your mind saying “I think I am going to fail” while sitting visualising the opposite. It would be a waste of time and that is why I am not an advocate of meditation for people who have not mastered their thinking outside of meditation. Emotionally driven, strong belief, polarised people who meditate for peace, are at war with themselves. This is not what I teach you. Because that meditation makes the world not better.
Visualisation therefore goes hand in hand with a decision to alter the world you create, a world that is going to be constructed or deconstructed based on your mind, thoughts, beliefs. Step one of that reconstruction is thought control. And we have achieved this through your awareness of the Universal Laws of Nature.
In the first two SUCCESS FORMULA trainings in this series I have shown that you have two methods by which you can alter your life, create better circumstances, and achieve success. First by denials and second by affirmations. Now we add the third step, which is by concentration and visualisation. The three work together. For instance you make an affirmation, preceded by a denial, next, you concentrate on conjuring up a mental movie of what you have affirmed yourself and your destiny to be.
If you wish to be successful at anything in life, first of all you must deny the negative and secondly you affirm the good. This does not mean that the negative does not exist, what it means is that you see the balance but focus on the good, the positive, the beautiful, the successful because the negative, evil, is the general cause of all your troubles and lack of success; then you will affirm success and follow this by visualisation, either yourself in your perfect mental world, radiant and successful, or else dwell only on the perfect world of mind where there is no failure or limitation of any description.
I put this another way: first, you clear away the mist of evil which clouds your vision and numbs your faculties and crowds your life with difficulty, this you do by killing it by the use of denial; “there is no evil.“ Use this denial until the mist clears away and you get a clear view of your perfect world of mind, then you affirm “there is only infinite good.“ Then deny poverty and failure, because they too have no part in a perfect world, neither can they affect you, because you are in essence, a perfect mental creature.
Now you may push back and remind me, as many do, that pollution, murder, deforestation, and global warming do exist. You might say to me, this evil, is real. And I cannot argue with you. But, I can also rise above that view. I can use the laws of balance, harmony, abundance, growth and heirarchy to see these events differently. I can choose how I experience life and that is to say “beauty exists” everywhere, just like you can say “evil exists everywhere.” It is a choice where I put my mind. I can swim in the swamp or rise into the sky. I am not being naive to danger, nor abdicating my responsibility to act and decide wisely, it is simply good marketing, I display the benefits and deny the drawbacks that exist in every product in order to create an attraction to it. In a similar way I create a view of a perfect world in my mind. Because I can. So can you. But this is a real choice, to be a different thinker.
It is not so much what you think, but how you think that changes this view from evil to beauty. If you simply avoid the negative news it might help but then your own thinking process will still be seeking either positive or negative. You can label half the world as negative and try to avoid it but then you become mentally sick and weak. Everywhere you go there will be stress of avoidance. Instead, you change “how you think” rather than what. If you change how, you look for balance as an example. You’ll see two sides to all negative stories, so there’s nothing to avoid. Only there is discipline not to absorb what people say or reject what people say but to look for balance in what people say. That’s a filter. You then become a leader who can be amongst thieves and not become one.
This is why I teach you nature’s universal laws. It gives you the ability and power to change not just what, but how you think, so you can filter what causes most people failure and instead see the beautiful world you live in, and affirm your success. Then there is none of what most people will try to do which causes them mental, emotional, financial, career, health and relationship failure: running away from what they judge, trying to live a righteous life and hiding in meditations or stressing in order to achieve a polarity in life.
STEP 1. Having killed failure and poverty by denial, then STEP 2. affirm “I am success, I am perfect mental creature, one with the supreme source of all good, part of the universal mind.“ “I am success, like a magnet I attract to me all that I need.““1000 invisible forces hastened to do my work for me and gain me success.“ “I am carried along by an irresistible power, I am success, success, success.“
Make this affirmation proceeded by the denials, night and morning, always making the affirmation in “your perfect mental world of universal laws of nature.“ Buttress it up by repeating it during the day, each time raising yourself to your higher world; do this, and you will revolutionise your life.
In order to increase your powers of mental imagery do the following exercise;
EXERCISE 1. TO INCREASE YOUR POWERS OF MENTAL IMAGERY: Take a simple flower or picture of a flower, and gaze at it very attentively for several minutes. Examine it in every possible way. Impress every detail onto your mind, then close your eyes and conjure up and exact mental image of the thing you have been looking at. If the image is crisp and sharply defined with no details missing you will have done exceptionally well, if not, keep on trying until you succeed.
EXERCISE 2. TO INCREASE YOUR POWERS OF MENTAL IMAGERY: When you go into a strange room or office examine carefully every detail; where each piece of furniture is, what pictures are on the walls, what is on the floor, the kind of fireplace and everything else that forms part of the furnishings. After you get home or when on the train, close your eyes and recall, by making a mental image, as much as you can, of what you saw. Practice this visualisation as much as possible during the coming week, and make affirmations to suit your growing developments. Whatever your needs may be, you can make a denial and affirmation to supply that need. Whatever difficulty you have to face you can overcome it by denial and affirmation made in your perfect world of mind.
The Success Formula seeks to build a firm foundation of character upon which you can later erect the superstructure of success. Seek first to eradicate all weakness of character and in its place install opposites. For instance: if you have been a procrastinator, become instead noted for your instant action. If you have been pessimistic, become cheerful and optimistic instead. If not punctual, become the most punctual person who ever lived. If you have been silent and morose, stick to bright and cheerful. All this is possible and really quite easy to accomplish, by the use of denials, affirmations and mental imagery.
When you have built up your character the path to success will become comparatively easy because success is principally a matter of character.
The general affirmation I presented to you earlier will eventually serve it’s purpose to build your mental and leadership strength, and can be strengthened. When you have progressed sufficiently in your commitment to the “perfect world of mind” – Universal Laws of Nature, and you do truly expect your denials, affirmations and visualisations to cause your destiny, you are ready to join us in the greatest denial and affirmation of all, which is;
There is no evil. Only infinite good.
It is very difficult for the beginner to realise that “there is no evil“. There are entities in your mind which prevent you from understanding this truth but they will get cast out by denial. So powerful is this denial that it makes some people quite ill at first but this only proves how great it is for the cleansing work that it is going on at the depths of the mind. Keep on making the denial every day; keep looking up into your perfect world of mind and after a time you will suddenly realise that for you there is no evil, only infinite perfection and everything is beautiful and true. Proceed every other affirmation by this denial and engage your affirmations fully as if there were no opposite. Before starting any important work make use of them; and before engaging in any concentration, always use them; raising, at the same time, your mind into its perfect world where your genius exists.
By this means you will so cleanse and strengthen your mind that you will transform your life.
“The subconscious mind that is impure, sordid and selfish, is gravitating with unerring precision toward misfortune and catastrophe; the subconscious that is pure, unselfish and noble, is gravitating with equal certainty towards happiness and prosperity. Every subconscious mind (subliminal mind) attracts its own, and nothing can come to it that does not belong to it. To realise this is to recognise the universality of the laws of nature.
The words of the Buddha:
“All that we are is the result of what we have thought; it is founded on our thoughts; it is made up of our thoughts.“
“Your own thoughts, desires and aspirations comprise your world, and, to you, all that there is in the universe of beauty and joy and bliss, all of ugliness and sorrow and pain, is contained within yourself. Your own thoughts you make all my your life your world, your universe.“
Importance of choosing the right visualisations in your mind’s eye cannot be underestimated. If it is money that you want then “see“ the money falling in showers on your desk, if it is service to others that you desire, then “see“ yourself nursing the sick and healing the brokenhearted, whatever you picture in this way persistently, will, in time, be bought to reality in your life. Nothing ever “happens“ it is always “bought to reality.” You cannot get what you want by simply a fleeting wish on your birthday while you blow out the candles, you have to work for it by mental imagery, then, in time, the way will open for you in a most miraculous way.
Continue to practice concentration on one thought or mental image, inhibiting all of the thoughts until the senses are entirely still. Then say: “my subliminal mind draws upon the all wisdom and solves every problem.“
