My name is Heather Matthews, and I am a transformational speaker, life coach, and an expert on energy flow.
I spent years of my life chasing the carrot of more money and more time all because I believed that if I just worked hard enough, I’d eventually get there…
Yet all I needed was one simple secret technique that turned everything around for me… the secret that allowed me to get more, while doing less – the secret behind “The Secret”.
Plain and simple and as crazy as it sounds, the only way to quit struggling and instead start feeding endless cash and abundance into your life like an ATM machine on hyper-speed… is by giving up on hard work and forcing the Universe to give you everything you’ve ever wished for.
So, how do you do that?
It’s surprisingly easy to get started. You just need to follow these 10 Super Simple Steps to Attract Everything You’ve Ever Wanted:
Step #3: Visualize your future
Let’s have some fun with an instant visualization experience.
Sharpen your imagination.
Follow my instructions.
Here we go!
Imagine yourself opening the refrigerator. See yourself taking out a lemon. Hold the lemon in your palms. Feel the texture of its waxy, yellow peel and its smoothness. Feel the oblong shape ending at a point. Slightly press the lemon in your palm, and feel the presence of the fresh juice inside. Take a sharp knife and cut the lemon in two halves. Inhale deeply and smell the lemon fragrance as freshly released molecules of lemon scent hit your nose. Now bite into the lemon.
If your mouth has salivated by now, you just had a powerful visualization experience. You haven’t actually bitten into the lemon, yet your mouth salivated in reality. That is the power of visualization.
Visualization is a very powerful technique for the achievement of goals and success in life. Visualization is simply the act of picturing something in your mind that is not a part of your current reality. Visualization is not magic; rather it is a technique based on research findings. It is well known that athletes are taught to practice visualization for peak performance.
It is now well established by experts in the field that every creation that you see around you was an idea first. Every building, car, road, furniture, pen, paper, computer. EVERYTHING was first visualized by someone in their mind. Every creation, including you and me, has its origin in the mind. God first visualized in His mind, and has created us in His own image. To succeed in any endeavor, therefore, wouldn’t it make sense to first visualize your success in your mind’s eye? Certainly it does.
Interestingly enough, at one time, we were all amazing visualizers. Want proof?
Watch a group of kids role-play with other children. You can see in their eyes how REAL their games are to them. It’s amazing how powerful their imaginations are.
This is something that’s lost on grown-ups. Children have the benefit of not knowing what is not possible. For them everything is feasible. What’s more young children get praise and encouragement from their parents and teachers for almost any work they do. As far as children are concerned, every problem can be solved. Adults on the other hand are only too well versed in what they cannot achieve and what cannot be done. We are surrounded by rules, regulations, laws and compliance. We have experienced rejections, failures and humiliations. At some stage we have all worked for a difficult boss who was not interested in our ideas. So, if we want to recapture the powerful ability to envision the kind of reality that we want, we need to think like children again.
The Universe likes to play games with us- the better you are at visualizing, the more you’ll be rewarded: a certain type of energy attracts a certain kind of reality. Follow these steps to begin your practice of visualization:
- Identify the area of your life that you want to succeed in.
- Practice visualization every night when you go to bed and every morning when you awake.
- Close your eyes and create mental pictures during visualization.
- Give your mental pictures as much vivid detail as possible
- Experience the visualization through your own eyes. This means that you have to visualize as yourself and not as an eye witness or third party bystander.
- See yourself accomplishing your goal during your visualization.
- Just as we did earlier with the lemon, use all your senses and add emotion to heighten the experience.
- BELIEVE! Strongly believe that whatever you are visualizing will manifest in your reality. Remember that your visualization experience is not just your mind at play; you are actually creating and placing an order of your desired intention with the universe.
- For best results, internalize the visualized experience. Act as if it’s already happened! Let it become a part of your being.
You can apply this visualization technique to succeed in any area of your life. So if you focus your energy and thoughts on that dream job you want or that car you’ve always wanted to drive or the guy/girl of your dreams or learning to speak Spanish or overcoming your fear of public speaking or approaching your boss for a raise/promotion, you’ll raise your frequency to ATTRACT those exact things.
Happy visualizing! Here’s to your successful future!
