A Secret to Master Visualization

“As the sailor has the port toward which he is sailing in his mind, you must have a clear mental picture continually in your mind. You must keep your face toward it all the time.” ~ Wallace Wattles

Your mental image will manifest when impressed continuously on the formless substance. There is no doubt in my mind that this is true. It’s Law. The difficulty is in keeping that impression consistent and continuously on your mind.

The Problem with Visualization

Not let me be very clear on this. I don’t think visualization is the problem. Visualization is in fact perfect in every way. It’s perfect because the Universe is perfect. The Universe is in direct alignment with your hearts desires. It’s completely aligned for you in every aspect. In this current moment your life is in complete alignment with what you want.

The problem isn’t visualization. The problem is focus.

Tell me, What do you really want?

Really give that question some thought. I don’t think many people do. When I ask others this question, there are usually two answers,

1) They don’t know


2) They tell me what they think they can get

The first group don’t know what they want. When asked this question they provide elaborate detail on what they don’t want. Their focus is in the wrong place. When they focus on what they don’t want, they get more of that.

You see, there are a lot of people who already know what you know. They know what they don’t want. They know that when they focus on what they don’t want, they get more of it. They know this and they still do it!

The second group is slightly different. When asked the same question, What do you really want? they provide a different answer. They answer based on what they think they can get. They would rather settle than have what they really want.

“There is a massive difference between what you think you can get AND what you really want.” ~ SM

That’s the problem. In my experience that’s why most people have a problem with visualization. The majority of people don’t consciously direct their focus on what they really want. Instead they focus on what they don’t want or what they think they can get.

Why? Because they haven’t decided to go and figure out what they really want.

How to Visualize with Lightning Speed

Visualization is the most natural and beautiful gift we’re given. It doesn’t matter how old you are, you can do it.

Recently, I was listening to an audio from Bob Proctor. He mentioned that there are schools in the U.S. and other parts of the world that teach visualization to young children. Some of these kids are ages 6-8. They are so young and they still do it! If they can do it, then so can you.

Visualization is easy, especially if you use this tip.

Begin to think of the first time you fell in love. Think of the first time you met that person and how you felt. Do you remember them? Do you remember that moment?

You see, when you fell in love for the first time you thought about that person all the time. You thought about them in the shower, brushing your teeth, on the bus, in your car and at work. You thought about them every moment of every day. You couldn’t get them off your mind even if you tried. You were making pictures of that person continuously.

If you want to master visualization then fall in love. Fall in love with an idea that will ignite your future.

You want to fall in love with your vision. You want to bring it everywhere you go and just be with it; be totally in love with it.

It sounds so simple and it really is. When you fall in love with your vision you will never have to force it upon your mind again.

Visualization & Gratitude

You see you can’t give what you don’t have. If you don’t love yourself then how could you ever love another?

In order to love your vision, you’ve got to love yourself. You really want to be grateful for who you are and what you have. Gratitude connects you to source. When you’re grateful for everything you have, you can’t help but love your life.

You want to focus on the good in your life. You’ve got this genius within you that is just waiting to pour out. You want to be in love with yourself and kiss yourself everyday. You’re a beautiful human being.

Fall in love with yourself and you’ll fall in love with your vision. When you fall in love with your vision you will never have to force it upon your mind again.

    “Your life is in complete alimgment with what you want” This is the attitude that we have the power to control our lives in any direction we seek, and how positivity changes everything yes? I used to believe that. Until I experienced certain things I couldn’t change by thinking about or being positive. In fact being positive hurt me more, i felt I was lying to myself (which is unhealthy) and denying myself the right to be genuinely unhappy with oppression I faced (and do face) and sickness I experienced.

    The fact is, if you think all you need for your life to be in alingment with what you want is visualization, you come from a very privileged life. Because no not everyone can escape the things they face, they suffer through it doing the best they can. And when you’re struggling to feed your family, and this is not something that can change soon, when you are too sick to care for yourself, when you’re disabled, when you face constant oppression that makes you need to almost always fear for your life that is a society structure you can’t escape, this doesn’t much work. If people could always make themselves be happy, they would. No one wants to be sad. The act of being sad means you want happiness. But without the overall help to make things better for everyone from society, some of these things wont change. People can learn to deal with it. But it is not in alingment with what they want. Especially when what someone wants is to be able to walk the streets safely as they are.

    I certainly agree that thought and visulization have a lot of impact on how we live our lives. But I do not agree what we want is in alingment. In a sense it is, in the sense that who we really are and what we really want all lies inside us to find. But other things, not so much. Wanting the world to be a better place will get you to an activist position probabaly. Working for change. But thats still not what the person wants. I know because I’m one of those people. Continulay confronted with what I can’t get. I don’t want the struggle and the fight for things that should not even be an issue with others. I want my gender to be respected (which is really just respecting me as a person). I want to be safe enough to openly always be able to refer to my partner as my partner. I don’t want to be sick. Some of these things can improve, but there is much chance they will never go away fully. Because the world isn’t on board. Just pointing out this mainly works from privileged desires, the whole achieving what you really want being in your reach and alingment. When desiring to be treated respecfully by others and feel safe is not as much an issue.

    I can’t predict your circumstances, but in general I want to see more enlightenment and meditation and pagan stuff from folks who deal with a lot of oppression in their daily lives. I’m lucky to have met a great few who’ve been personal teachers, and have been wonderful teachers at that.

    Also there is difficulty when generally the desires are not possible. But visulaization can still lead you on the right/best track, often by giving you an amazing understanding of yourself if you let it. And in that regard I agree. Using my imagination actively throughout my life, almost constantly, I have such a wonderful understanding of who I am (not to say it works like this for everyone). But still I’m looking to improve it, because you never really stop learning.
