“Before you begin a thing, remind yourself that difficulties and delays quite impossible to foresee, are ahead. You can only see one thing clearly and that is your goal. Form a mental vision of that and cling to it through thick and thin.” –Kathleen Norris
Learn the Art of Mental Rehearsal
I think the most helpful way to write about mental vision is to tell you about a few of the ways I have used this “mental vision” in my own life.
Way back in high school I read the book “Psycho-Cybernetics”. That was the first book that taught me about imagery and “mental rehearsal”.
I was on the wrestling team, and I rehearsed in my mind the moves that I would make when I was in a match. I saw myself in control, and winning.
Did I always win?
No, I didn’t win every time. However, I know that my mental vision and rehearsal helped me to succeed more often.
Since I knew it “worked”, I started to use this mental rehearsal and “inner practice” in many other areas of my life. I used it for running events, dating, test taking, job interviews, speaking in public, and much more.
Any event or scenario that is imagined in detail is more likely to come to pass in reality, or in the physical world. Some events can “manifest” quickly, for example, a really good talk with your child. Other events, such as a trip to Hawaii or Switzerland, will take more “inner work”, as well as concrete action items.
The goal that you form in your imagination is the end result you want. If you are not proactive in creating the life you want, then other people will plan your life for you.
I think it’s best to create my own life!
You will often encounter bumps and detours on the way to your goal. This tests your determination and focus. Keep your vision, and act “as if” you have achieved your goal already.
Feel and act in confidence, and manifestation of your goals is assured.
What else have I manifested in my life?
A beautiful loving relationship with my wife. A new house (that I built). My own business. Engaging in my favorite recreation activities frequently. Writing many books. Participation in humanitarian work. A trip to Hawaii. A close relationship with my children. And much more.
Imagine what you want and “feel it now” as if you have it, and you will. This is the key to manifesting through inner vision.
Why don’t more people manifest successfully?
One major reason is that they lack focus. Writing down your imagined scenario, and your accompanying feelings, really helps your focus.
That’s why I came up with the Holographic Creation Sheet. This sheet helps people focus. Writing increases the clarity of your thinking.
Thousands of people have received the benefit of writing their dreams and visions down on their holographic creation sheet.
P.S. There are many books on inner vision and manifesting that can help you. Read as many as you can. You will learn something from all of them. Do read Psycho-Cybernetics also. It’s not the easiest read, but it’s worth it.
