Visualization is something it took me a long time to understand, read: agree with. You can then read "agree with" to mean: to be able to effectively practice. Effective practice is to do something over and over again with the least resistance possible. Usually our resistance to practice comes from not having faith in the outcome, and that's usually as a result of not having practiced enough! It's an endless circle, but one that can easily be worked with for our success.

Let's begin this practice for success with an understanding of what visualization is not. It is not holding a picture in your mind only and then magically an exact duplication of that vision appears. Visualization is rather, an energetic request to Infinite Supply, that connects you with that inexhaustible supply in a way that can provide you in real time and space, with the manifestations associated with what you are continually visualizing. Associated with, because what manifests may not be exactly what you visualized, but that's perfect. Perfect because for any aspect of your life, our lives, Source knows the right and perfect manifestations to fulfill our requests, that best serve our greatest and highest good, even when we think only we are privy to that information. We aren't necessarily, but Source always is!

Think of visualization in this way. Everything is energy. Hold enough energy in one place, for a long enough time, and it becomes solidified into whatever you intend it to become. It's like adding one drop of water to a glass at a time until it becomes full. You don't get frustrated over the glass not being full yet as you go along, now do you? That's because you can see that water adding up much easier than you can see the successes that the Universe has in store for you, that are adding up in your favor. Your visualization is a drop by drop energy, which includes your thoughts, your pictures, your feelings, your actions, your conversations about it, and your intentions behind, each one of these actions and manifestations, that all require energy, your energy, to exist in the first place. Energy by itself has no will. Energy by itself has no intent. But you have both. Through your visualization, your intent becomes the intent of the Infinite.

The most important aspect of visualizations, their real value, is the way they make you feel when you are visualizing. It's that "feeling energy" that works for having actual manifestations appear in real time and space more than anything else. Really feel it, really deal it, it just works this way. A second, often ignored aspect of visualizations, the one that makes them be so effective, is that when you are visualizing, you are not doing what you usually do, or have been trained to do, and that is devoting your energy, your very life essence and time, over to worry and concern. Giving our energy over to worry and concern is not the way to make any of our dreams come true. Imagine that! Oh, you already are! We all already are. Now our job is to imagine something else, and that's called visualizing. Something else other than worry and concern, so that our energy can be best utilized for making our dreams come true. The third effective technique in this triad of visualization power, is to apply to your practice, letting go, completely letting go, of your pictures of "how it has to turn out in order for me to be_________" you fill in the blank: successful, happy, rich, in love, the list goes on. Give it up. Just give up how it "has to look."

Why give it up? Because you do not know. You without question, absolutely and without question, do not know what details of your life are working to make your dreams come true. In the moment of them happening you might know, but beforehand? Not once, not ever. So give up those pictures and know only this: that the right and perfect circumstances are happening to best insure your success, and right now, no matter what. I'll give you an example from my own life where I had to give up my pictures. I once had a great radio interview, from a network that was very popular in India. India? My books weren't even printed in that language, and barely distributed there. How was that going to work? I had to give it up, let it go, and then allow The Universe, with it's Infinite wisdom, to guide me. I also had to give up my pictures of how my success was going to work out. Turns out, years later, a major publisher in India saw my book at a book fair, and not only reprinted it in the required language, but redesigned the cover and distributed it to their large network of already existing customers! And the best part was that millions of educated readers were already familiar with my work through my radio interview! How about that for not knowing!

Once you truly resonate with the fact of having to give it up, watch out! That's when manifestations of what you are visualizing come faster and faster. Know too, that up until the point when you experience the actions of a speedy visualize/give up your pictures/manifest, visualize/give up your pictures/manifest, process, and then continue to practice this method of manifesting, what your mind, as my mind did, will ask for is proof. Then, despite a million proofs provided, we automatically get dismayed when things don't appear to be working out the way we are visualizing they "should be working out" every single time. Yet the irony for me was that for the most part, no, make that for every time, I did not believe in myself, or was disappointed, what I got back from that visualization, was the Universe saying "no" to my requests for success, and then more not believing in myself, and more disappointment. What I had failed to understand was that my requests were always, and in all ways, being fulfilled! Every time I was disappointed, the Universe said, "yes" you can have more of that, so here's something else to get disappointed over. The Universe was simply making me right! Making me right by providing another energy draining endless loop of circumstances that through the powerful energy of my feelings, I was requesting, but again, another one that can easily be worked with. Just because I didn't like the results didn't mean I couldn't change them! I didn't like them maybe because they perfectly mirrored my inner state, and I wanted external circumstances to change first, so that I would feel better, rather than to feel better despite any external circumstances. Believe me, it took a long time for me to realize how important our internal states of being are to having the visualization/manifesting process work out in the way we really want it to: With success and a joyful fruition of our life goals.

In the online seminar I do with participants, there are means and methods, processes and procedures, that all add up to what it will take to shift our internal states of being from wherever they are, to where they need to be in order to have what we want. There are many tools that must be used before visualization can be effective, and to understand this truth is to practice it. This is why the seminar was designed to last for thirty weeks. We make our practice effective through The Perseverance Principle. We persevere when our visualization practice doesn't seem to be working, until we come to the point where we know it is working, and always has been. We always have to keep on going until we are satisfied with the proof provided. When through the sustained coaching of the seminar, our focus shifts from what's not working, to what works for us to be successful, we then make our visualizations work for us, instead of against us! We can do it!

The question is: What are you requesting from Infinite Supply with your visualizations?
