Hi Everyone. This is the third post in my series 7 Steps to Implementing Law of Attraction for Your Business and Your Life.
In the first post we talked about Step 1 Know Your Desire.
Step 3 is…
Visualization and Inspired Action
We create our own reality every moment, whether we are aware of it or not and whether our reality is primarily positive or primarily negative. Its all start from within each of us. Visualization is the process of imagining the experience deep in mind, as if, it is in reality. It involves the five senses. Visualization is the same as Attraction. With every visualization, whether conscious or unconscious, we are actually attracting. Merely visualization what you want is not enough,
You have to take inspired actions to manifest your desires.To accomplish great things we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe. – Anatole France
Being able to visualize something in exact detail can do wonders for your powers of manifestation.
I asked my client to find a place to relax and have slowly entered a focused meditative state, find one vivid image that represents your her in her ultra successful business. She said that relaxing was difficult and I suggested that she pick up a CD of meditation music or listen to a number of meditation tracks on YouTube and find one that she likes. Back to her vivid image…. At first she could not think about what to envision. I suggested that it might be shaking hands and feeling appreciation from a brand new client who will generate $1,500 a month from a business whose values are in alignment with her own. I also suggested that her image be her bank statement after just 3 months in business or her coming home from work feeling satisfied in every way.
I suggested that she experiment with with multiple images and then focus on one that really speaks to the feelings of pride, happiness and accomplishment that she associates with her business and work/life balance. This will be the image that she will use in future visualizations. I told her that it would be very useful to have set times to do her visuatization, possibly in the morning, evening and mid-day or what ever her schedule allows. I told her that this process, even for a brief few minutes, will allow her to carry your positive images, emotions and beliefs into the day.
Inspired Action is essential to the Law of Attraction.
Too many people forget this step. They feel inspired, but do not act on their positive, divine inspirations. They wait for things to happen to them, and that’s exactly what ends up happening, they end up waiting and get paralized by fear. They wait…and wait. have you heard this story?
A very religious man was once caught in rising floodwaters. He climbed onto the roof of his house and trusted God to rescue him. A neighbour came by in a canoe and said, “The waters will soon be above your house. Hop in and we’ll paddle to safety.” “No thanks” replied the religious man. “I’ve prayed to God and I’m sure he will save me” A short time later the police came by in a boat. “The waters will soon be above your house. Hop in and we’ll take you to safety.” “No thanks” replied the religious man. “I’ve prayed to God and I’m sure he will save me” A little time later a rescue services helicopter hovered overhead, let down a rope ladder and said. “The waters will soon be above your house. Climb the ladder and we’ll fly you to safety.” “No thanks” replied the religious man. “I’ve prayed to God and I’m sure he will save me” All this time the floodwaters continued to rise, until soon they reached above the roof and the religious man drowned. When he arrived at heaven he demanded an audience with God. Ushered into God’s throne room he said, “Lord, why am I here in heaven? I prayed for you to save me, I trusted you to save me from that flood.” “Yes you did my child” replied the Lord. “And I sent you a canoe, a boat and a helicopter. But you never got in.”
I told her that you take action the universe joins in with us to co-create the intentions we want.
It must be inspired action! This action is not driven by the ego. She asked what the difference is? I told her that action lead by ego comes solely from your mind or head, inspired action comes from your heart and from the Divine. I told her that I know I have been given an Inspired Action when my hands feel tingling. I know this may sound strange, but I have tested it enough to know that it is true. I told her that a great way to learn her physical sensation for an Inspired Action is to ask what action to take on things that don’t really have an emotional charge. Ask “what is the best way to drive home?”. What does your gut and how does your body feel? Which outfit should I purchase for the meeting next week? I told her that before long she would be able to identify an action coming from her mind (ego) versus her heart (inspired action). When you act immediately on the inspiration given to you, you show the universe that you appreciate what you are given and in return you are given more. So what inspiration will you act on today?
One of the best ways to focus your mind with visions of the business you desire is to use guided meditations which are designed to take you on a journey in your mind to help manifest the specific desire you want in your life. It is very important to include the qualities of life that you want in your business life. For example, what is the good of manifesting the money you desire if you are working 60 hours a week with no chance to enjoy it and it being detrimental to your health?
If we want something to happen in our lives, we first think of it in the mind.
For example, if you want a business that generates $10,000 a month and allows you to be at home with your family in the evenings and on weekends, you picture yourself serving your customers with great joy, attracting your “dream team” and having dinner with your family and sharing the highlights of your day while having plenty of time and energy to interact with your family. You see it, feel the emotion of having a life filled with work/life balance, and get excited about owning the business. It’s the same for all your desires, you first have to picture it in your mind before it can come to you.
If you are new to visualizing or if you have been doing it for years, I invite you to listen to Bob Proctor’s Visualize Your Abundant Future. It was life changing for me as I know it will be for you. I have learned so much from Bob and recommend that you check out this free video series. After seeing the free video series you will be offered a paid program. I have taken this and highly recommend it. If that does not work for you I still highly recommend that you view and view again the free series.
