How to create your own vision
We have heard and read many times that our thoughts are creating our reality. Indeed, if you think about it, what we think, in one way or the other, we attract it and it happens.
In the following extract from Jack Ganfielf’s book “Step by Step Success”, Ed. Binoculars, the subject goes a step further, in the “art” of vision, which, according to the book, is the first move to achieve our goals.
“Imagination is everything. It is a preview of what positive life will bring. ” – Albert Einstein
Visualizing or creating exciting and vibrant images with the mind may be the tool you have taken advantage of less than what you have at your disposal because it can greatly speed up any success in three dramatic ways:
1. Vision activates the creative forces of your subconscious mind.
2. It focuses on your brain by programming its Network Activation System (DOS) to understand resources that you have always had, but until then they have gone unnoticed.
3. Visualization, through the Law of Attraction, magnetizes and attracts the people, resources and opportunities you need to achieve your goal.
Researchers have discovered that when you perform any work, your brain uses the same procedures that would be used if you were simply envisioning this activity. In other words, your brain does not make any difference when you envision something and when you really do it. This principle also applies when we learn something new. Harvard’s research found that students who were anticipating what they were supposed to do later were performing the corresponding 100 percent precision processes while the accuracy of students who did not use visioning was only 55 percent.
Enlightenment makes the brain achieve more. And even though no one has taught it at school, sports psychologists and top performers have made the power of visualization widely known since the 1980s. Almost all athletes, champions and professionals use the power of vision.
Jack Nick, the legendary golfer who won 73 tournaments and $ 5.7 million, once said: “I never throw a ball, not even in training, without having a very clear and focused picture of the shot in my mind. It’s like a color film. First I “see” where I want to stop the ball, beautiful and white to sit high on the bright green grass. Then the scene changes quickly and I see the ball pointing there: its course, track and shape, even its behavior when it bounces on the ground. Then the shot is dark and the next scene shows me to try the blow that will make the previous pictures a reality “.
How vision helps to improve performance
When you visualize your goals, every day, as if already achieved, a contradiction (a structural tension) is created in your subconscious mind between what you are imagining and the current temporary reality. Your conscious mind tries to resolve this controversy by transforming the current reality into your new and more exciting vision. When, with the passage of time and the continuous use of visions, this collision is exacerbated, it actually produces three effects:
1. Plan your network brain activation system to let you understand everything that can help you achieve your goals.
2. Enables your subconscious mind to find solutions that will help you reach your goals. You will start waking up in the morning with new ideas. New ideas will come to you while bathing while you walk and while driving to get to work.
3. Increases your motivation. You will begin to notice that without waiting for you to do things that will lead you to your goal. Suddenly, you will start to raise your hand in the classroom, ask to outsource work to your job, talk to corporate meetings, ask for what you want, save money to get things you want, pay off your credit card or risk more in your personal life.
Let’s look in more detail on how the grid activation system works. At any given moment, 11 million bits of information flow into your brain, most of which you can not give conscious attention – and you do not even need to do it. The CEF of the brain filters most of them, allowing you to bring into your consciousness only those signals that will help you survive and achieve your most important goals.
How, however, does the DCE know what to let go into your consciousness and what to filter? Lets go through anything that will help you achieve the goals you have set and constantly envision and confirm. It also lets you pass anything that suits your beliefs and the image you have for yourself, others and the world.
The CEF is a powerful tool, but it can look for ways to make just the exact pictures you give it. Your creative subconscious does not think in words but with images. So how do you help all this in your effort to succeed and to get the life of your dreams? When you give your brain specific, lush, vibrant and exciting images to manifest, it will begin to seek out and capture all the information necessary to turn that picture into reality. If you give your mind a problem of $ 10,000, it will find a $ 10,000 solution. If you give your mind a problem of 1 million, it will find a solution of 1 million.
If you give him pictures of a beautiful house, a cherished husband, a thrilling career and exotic holidays, he will use his powers to carry them out. Instead, if you constantly feed it with negative images and images of fear and anxiety – yes, you have guessed correctly! – it will once again recruit its forces to carry them out.
The process of envisioning your future
The process of visioning success is actually simple. All you have to do is close your eyes and see that you have already achieved your goals. If one of your pursuits is to get a nice house next to a lake, close your eyes and see yourself walking around the house you want to get. See all details. How is his external face? The garden of? What view does it have? How is the living room, the kitchen, the bedroom, the dining room, the living room and the office? What furniture does it have? Navigate from room to room and fill in all details.
Make the images as clear and brighter as possible. This is true for any goal you set, whether it concerns work, fun, family, finances, relationships, or charity. Write down all your goals and start re-reading them, confirming them and envisioning them everyday. Then every morning when you wake up and every night before you fall asleep, you read aloud your list of goals. After each goal you are reading, stop, close your eyes and reproduce the visual image of the completed goal in your mind.
Continue until you have envisioned all your completed and fulfilled goals. The whole process takes 10 to 15 minutes, depending on how many goals you have. If you do some kind of meditation, do the vision as soon as you finish it. The state of deeper awareness that you have achieved through meditation will increase the impact of your visions.
Add sounds and senses to images
To greatly multiply the results of visualization, add sounds, smells, flavors and other senses to images. What sounds will you hear, what smells you will be stunning, what flavors you will taste and, most importantly, what feelings and bodily sensations would you feel if you had already achieved your goal?
If you dreamed of the dream home of your dreams, you can add the sound of the wave to pop out on the shore outside your home, the sound of the children playing on the beach, and the voice of your wife who thanks you for offering them all. Then add the sense of pride that house ownership gives you, the satisfaction you have achieved your goal and the feeling of sun falling down on your face while sitting on the lounger and looking at it.
Feed your images with emotions
What gives the most impetus to your vision is emotions. Scientists know that when an image or a scene is accompanied by intense feelings it can remain engraved in our memory forever. I’m sure you remember exactly where you were when the Twin Towers collapsed on September 11, 2001. Your brain remembers everything in great detail because it not only filtered out the information you needed to survive in these agonizing moments but also because the images themselves were created with intense emotion.
These intense emotions essentially stimulate the development of extra endings of brain neurons, which ultimately creates more neural connections, thus drawing more memory into the memory. You can transfer the same emotional tension to your own visions by adding music, real smells, intense passion, or even shouting your affirmations with exaggerated enthusiasm. The more passion, enthusiasm and energy you employ, the more powerful the final result will be.
Vision has the effect
Olympic gold medalist Peter Wintar describes how he used the vision for his successful gold medal: “To stay focused on our Olympic goal, we started completing our workouts by portraying our dream. We envisioned that we are fighting in the Olympics and realizing our dream, using as a scenario the most dramatic turn that we thought could be a gymnastics match.
I said, “Okay, Tim, let’s just imagine it’s the final of the races in the men’s team. The United States team is in the last race of the day, which is the single-legged one. The last two athletes for the United States are Tim Dagget and Peter Wintar. Our team is fighting chest chest with the People’s Republic of China, the current world champions, and we have to finish our program perfectly to win the gold medal. ”
Then we all thought: Okay, okay. We will never be able to fight chest with chest with the Chinese. They came first to the Budapest World, while we did not even win a medal. This is not the case. But if it did happen? How would we feel? Then we closed our eyes and into an empty gym at the end of a busy day, visioning a stadium with 13,000 spectators and another 280 million people watching TV. We then implemented our programs. First, I did the announcer. I put my hands around my mouth as a loudspeaker and said, “Next athlete, from the United States of America, Tim Dagget.” Tim then performed his program as if he were in the Olympics.
When Tim was over, he went to the edge of the stadium, put his hands in front of his mouth, and with the best voice of a announcer he could make, he said: “Next American athlete, Peter Wintar.” Then it was my turn. In my mind, I only had one chance to run my program perfectly to win our gold medal. If I was wrong, we would have missed. Tim was shouting “green light” and then I was looking at the top judge, who was usually our coach, Mako. I took my hand and raised that right hand. Then I was turning to the monsoon, hanging from the bar and starting my schedule.
Well, something strange happened on 31 July 1984. It was the men’s final in the composite team at the Olympics at the Volley Pavilion at UCLA University. The 13,000 seats were full, and over 200 million viewers from all over the world coordinated their receivers in the race. The United States team took part in the last day’s event, the single-legged one. The last two athletes for the USA were Tim Dagget and Peter Wintar. And just as we had envisioned, our team was fighting a chest chest battle with the People’s Republic of China. We had to run our programs perfectly to win the gold medal.
I looked at our coach, Mako, who has been training us for the past 12 years. More concentrated than any other time, he said, “Okay, Peter, go. You know what you have to do. You’ve done it thousands of times every day in the gym. Let’s do it again and then we go home. Are you ready”.
He was right. I had been prepared for that moment, which I had envisioned her hundreds of times. I was ready to run my program. Instead of seeing myself in the Olympics in front of 13,000 spectators and 200 million viewers watching TV, I thought in my mind that I was at UCLA’s gym at the end of the day, I and two other people.
When the announcer said, “From the United States of America, Peter Wintar,” I thought it was my friend Tim Dagget who was saying it. When the green light came on, telling me it was time to start my schedule, I imagined it was not really the green light, but it was Tim that shouted “green light!” And when I raised my hand to the highest judge from East Germany, in my mind I made a signal to my coach, just as I did every day at the end of hundreds of training sessions. When I was in the gym I always imagined I was in the Olympics finals. And at the Olympics finals, I figured I was back in the gym.
I turned to the monsoon, jumped up and was held by the bar. I started to run the same program I had envisioned and practiced every day in the gym. I worked from memory, going once again where I had already gone hundreds of times. I quickly ran the risky double rotation that had ruined my hopes in the world championships. I performed smoothly my remaining program and made a good exit. Now I was expecting the judges’ rating.
Her announcement was heard with a deep voice through the speakers: “Peter Wintar’s score is 9.95” • “Yes!” I cried. “I did it!” The crowd began to cheer with enthusiasm, as I celebrated victory with my teammates.
Thirty minutes later, we stood on the Olympic podium in front of 18,000 spectators in the stands and over 200 million viewers watched while the officials were passing the gold medals in our throats. Me, Tim and the rest of our teammates stood proud with the golden medals in the chest as our national anthem was playing, and the asteroid grew up on the roof of the stadium. It was a moment when we had envisioned and practiced hundreds of times in the gym. Only this time was the real one.
The vision helped her walk again
The first time that Heather O’Brien Weaker heard about positive inner dialogue and vision was when he saw me in The Secret and wondered how he could create the same powerful pictures. So he chose to combine the vision with his experience in Hollywood, where he had worked with many of the biggest stars such as Elizabeth Taylor, Tom Cruise, Drew Barrymore, Bruce Willis, Patrick Suezi, and Demi Moore . He knew people in the movie industry are experts in creating exciting images that take you to a different world. Indeed, Heather had already seen cases where the amazing images played on the cinema screen “emotionally” traveled the viewers, who literally changed their way of life.
So she decided to create her own animated images – he called “cognitive films” – with positive statements instead of music. All these years, these “films” have proven to be very effective and helped Heather overcome many obstacles. At the same time, he had also created a mantra that he repeated in the difficult moments – “Do not bend, stand up!” The ironic is that Heather had no idea that her mantra and her “cognitive films” would really play a dominant role in her survival.
In July 2011, while Heather was glad to announce the details of her upcoming marriage, she was recruited to a managerial position in a luxury shop where she would supervise 30 cosmetics consultants, 50 vendors and millions of dollars worth of products. While she had not closed for a month in her new job, Heather stumbled into a cartoon full of rubbish that one had left unconsciously in the warehouse corridor. Heather fell in forks and knocked the front of her head, first into a metal rack, losing her senses, and then again when she fell with her head on the concrete floor. As soon as they notified her fiancée, he ran very nervous to the hospital.
When Heather woke up to the intensive, he knew something serious had happened to her. The room was spinning like a spin. She felt as if her head was squeezed into her vagina, and she heard a ringing in her head that pierced her ears. Though it could distinguish between shapes and objects, the light of the room was blind to it. He heard thunderous, deafening sounds, as if someone had raised the volume of the sound at the end. As she struggled to recover and understand what was happening, she found something terrible … she could not move her legs.
Heather later learned that he had suffered a severe brain trauma and that the strokes he had suffered on his head would now affect the functioning of her entire body. She did not feel her feet, nor could she move them. He could only pick them up using special straps that felt heavier as a pencil. She could not even stand up, because her dizziness and disorientation caused her to be vertiginous. When he tried to speak, the words were shattered and confused. He did not remember details and could not attend the slightest debate.
As if that were not enough, the doctors were not encouraging to recover her. People who had suffered similar injuries told her they lived in clinics and could not function normally beyond their bed. Some even fell into coma and were dying. Then Heather understood that the only person responsible for her recovery was the same. She immediately began to create a new “cognitive film” which this time focused on her recovery. The problem was that she was trying to use her brain to cure herself while her brain was seriously injured! However, she knew that as hard as it may be, vision would play a crucial role in her recovery.
Throughout the following month, Heather tried hard by doing her medical treatment and playing her “mental” film constantly in her mind. She desperately wanted to come home but warned her that she could not possibly be completely rid of the numerous symptoms she had suffered from. Eventually, while she could not walk, take care of herself or do anything on her own, she was discharged and taken care of by her fiancé.
He had to wash it, dress it up, feed it, take her to the toilet, give her her medication and help her do her physiotherapy while trying to run her business. Then Heather accepted another tragic hit of fate.
One week after going out of the hospital, and as they turned from the doctor, her fiancé and Heather collided with an unconscious driver who was under the influence of alcohol. The accident caused a second serious stroke in Heather, since opening the airbag shook her head vigorously in the passenger’s window. With the injuries he already had, Heather was fortunate to survive. And, as if they did not have enough difficulty to deal with, she was seriously injured and her fiancé – suffered a fracture in her leg and a serious injury in the middle, which would later require several surgeries to be restored.
The next few weeks were among the worst they had ever lived. However, Heather continued to play her “cognitive film” and use the “Do not bend, get up” mantra. One day, shortly after the accident, the fiancé told her Heather had an idea. She told her she had been inspired by a new “mental film” – organizing their marriage and setting the date. In the beginning, Heather was stunned. Indeed, he was angry with her fiancé who had suggested it to her! “To cross the corridor of the church with the wheelchair, hurting and trying to speak in tangled words, and there is a great chance that I can not remember what I want to say?” She exclaimed. “Forget it. I’m sorry, but being a kidnapper was not what I imagined for my marriage. ”
With Heather’s words: “I will never forget my fiancé gently grabs my arm from my wheelchair, pulls me close to him, looks into my eyes and tells me in his usual cheerful way : “You will become Mrs. Walker, so it is important that you can get up and walk again quickly. You will cross the corridor of the church by walking alone “, (The name Walker means the one who walks). He always had the ability to make me laugh, but by understanding the serious message that hid the joke, I also looked at him and, as if my heart was answering, I said, “I believe you.”
Many times during the day I concentrated and rehearsed the new “cult movie” of my wedding. It would be on the beach and we would all be barefoot. I would walk in the corridor to the waves that would gently explode on the shore and feel the sand between my fingers and the breeze on my face. And all of this as my mantra “Do not bend, stand upright” would play as a musical background. I am proud that on April 14, 2012, seven months after the second stroke we had suffered, we married a beautiful beach ceremony, where I actually walked alone … just as I had seen and heard in my “cognitive film” thousands of times.
Today, Heather shares her story in talks, workshops, and consulting sessions with clients from around the world. She also published her story in her new book, Dont Give Up, Get Up! In the limits of her resilience / persistence, Heather managed to recover through the power of vision.
