Last week at one of my workshops I asked who had a perfect life. Nobody raised their hand. I then asked the participants to describe their ‘perfect’ life. What came out were some vague ideas like:
“I would have a perfect life if I had more money than I needed.
“How much do you need and will that need stay the same as you earn more?
“…if I live with my family in our dream home.” What does it look like and where will it be?
“…if I have lost all that weight and am more attractive to my partner again.”
“…if I had a job I loved”
You have probably heard about the movie ‘The Secret’. They say for the Law of Attraction to work you need to ask then believe and you will receive. But how can the Universe give you what you ask if you are so vague, if you do not give clear instructions in what it is you want? In most cases it is already in this first part where we lose out. We do not ask clearly enough.
But that has another consequence. If we cannot ask clearly enough we also cannot believe 100 % in it becoming our reality because we cannot SEE it happening. It is nothing but a vague idea. And if the first 2 steps are not done properly we cannot go to the third, to the receive either, can we?
I know it is a very simplistic view of the Law of Attraction but it is what stops most of us getting what we want. We are not crystal clear about what it is. We cannot see our changed life in our mind’s eye.
In order for it to work in our favor we have to visualize what our ideal life looks like in crisp, precise detail and watch our self in that movie. If we do that often enough, we can skip the willpower or positive thinking stuff, and get to our goals…without having to overcome enormous obstacles and struggles!
But, in all probability you only hope, wish, desire for a better life; for things to “get better”, or for you to “become rich”, “happier”, or some other vague and non-specific goal. You have no specific, clear and unshakable vision of what “better”, “rich”, or “happier” means, and therefore cannot turn it into a mental movie you watch in your mind’s theatre over and over and over again.
One of the main principles we talked of in earlier posts is that your mind cannot distinguish an actual experience from a fantasy experience. And if you live the vision with great clarity and specificity in
your mind often enough, your mind becomes fooled into thinking you’ve already been there, done that and allows you to skip the struggle and get straight to the thing you dream about!
So, what can you do to start working towards the life you might describe as ideal?
<!–[endif]–>First of all, you have to write down everything that a perfect life, as you define it, would
contain. Then, use this list to start day-dreaming a movie with you as the star, and the story board
containing all the things on your wish list. This is what I call your Vivid Vision.
Watch this movie of your ideal life over and over, every chance you get but especially before you get up and just before going to sleep. Watch it when you feel good and when you feel bad. No matter what goes on now, watch your vivid vision, your internal movie as often as possible because this is where the second step – the believe sets in. Do not be impatient. It will happen, it will manifest but not necessarily in the time frame you had in mind or in exactly the same way you wished for but happen it will.
You can build your life the way YOU want it if you take action!
Build your dream story board and play your internal movie because if you procrastinate and leave it until you have time or whatever other excuse you come up with now, your dream life can never happen. So, no more reading about it; you know more than enough. Get yourself a pen and paper and start writing your story board, start seeing your life movie and DO IT NOW!!!
You are the Star!
