Without even thinking about it, we are always imagining and forming images within our minds. When we do this deliberately for the purpose of governing circumstances, we are using a metaphysical technique known as visualization.
“Visualization” is the title of chapter 11 in my book, How to Attract Money Using Mind Power. Here’s the quote I use to open that chapter:
“Through our inner images, our mind is causing what happens to us all the time. Whatever we experience in our lives…is the direct result of these images.”
–Adelaide Bry with Marjorie Bair, Visualization: Directing the Movies of Your Mind, 1978
Yes, our inner images are causing what happens to us all the time. Boy, can that be a blessing or a curse. When we have a basic understanding of metaphysics and mind power, and when we use visualization intelligently and responsibly, the process can indeed be a huge blessing to us when it comes to our money-attracting efforts.
Since the language of the subconscious mind is images, when we visualize we are speaking directly to the subconscious mind in the way it best understands. And we’re not asking the subconscious mind to help interpret or translate our message, but we are instead making our message crystal clear.
For the purpose of attracting money, we want to visualize what we want to come about in our financial lives. We want to see our money coming to us and we want to see the circumstances that money will allow us to bring about. This is the process by which we turn our imagined financial desires into our financial reality.
So, visualize, imagine, the details of your ideal financial life. What will you be doing in this ideal life? What will you have use of and own in this ideal life? Where will you be and where will you go in this ideal life? See the bank statements, the home, the vehicles and the locations. Create on the inside what you intend to create on the outside.
When people think of visualization as a metaphysical technique, they most often think of some form of relaxation in a reclined position leading to visualizing with the eyes closed. And that is indeed visualization in the usual sense of the word, and that is indeed a very powerful metaphysical technique.
But, images are always forming in our conscious and subconscious minds. It happens as a natural result of our thinking processes, whether or not we intend for it to happen and whether or not we are aware that it is happening. This is useful information to those of us who are actively engaged in the ongoing task of attracting money using mind power.
It gives us fair warning that we need to be mindful of the images we allow to form within our minds. We need to guard against giving rise to images of financial circumstances we do not want to create, and we need to strive to entertain images of financial circumstances we do want to create.
Aside from the image-forming that is always going on as a natural result of our thinking, though, we indeed do want to spend time in the more formal way of visualizing which is done in a relaxed state with eyes closed.
You can do formal visualization any time you can get comfortable and have some privacy and quiet. Two of the best times to visualize are upon waking and as you are waiting for sleep to overtake you. At these times the connection between your conscious and subconscious minds is much less obstructed than is the case during your normal waking state.
You always want to visualize with positive feelings such as expectancy, gratitude and excitement. When you care to, you can add power and focus to your visualizing by doing affirmations related to what you are imagining.
You know you should only visualize and imagine financial circumstances you want to bring about, but sometimes what we want to bring about is not a good thing for us to bring about. We want to be the architects of our financial lives, but we need to be intelligent enough to know that we don’t know it all. We should understand that we need to allow our higher selves, God, the universe, or whatever, to override our desires at times.
With that in mind, here’s a helpful statement which you can voice or think after having visualized desired financial outcomes: This or something better with only good for all concerned. That statement can help keep you out of trouble you may otherwise have gotten into.
Here’s another quote I use in my chapter on visualization:
“Manifestation through creative visualization is the process of realizing and making visible on the physical plane our divine potential.”
–Shakti Gawain, Creative Visualization, 1978
Obviously, visualization can be used to bring about desired outcomes in any area of our lives. And you should use visualization in other areas of your life if you are so inclined to do so. But for our purposes here we are concerned with the fact that visualization can help us to attract money.
So, if you want to have a larger income, see yourself with that income and see the various details of what your life will be when you have that income. If you want to have a greater net worth, see yourself with that net worth and see the various details of how your life will be when you have that net worth.
It’s a funny sort of fact that we must see the circumstances we want to have in our lives before we can see those circumstances in our lives. Our power lives in our imaginations. Our imaginations are the workshops of our reality. Visualization is yet another very effective mind-power tool with which we can create the financial lives we dream of living.
Decide what you want, then see it as yours, then you will really see it when it is yours. That’s the process.
