Over the past decade, I have found myself gravitating towards books and documentaries that have to do with visualization and manifestation. In the past, the winner of the argument between fate and being proactive had not made itself very clear to me. That is, until I started using visualization. The documentary that started the whole thing was What the Bleep do We Know? After that, movies like The Secret and books such as The Artist’s Way found me and dare I say, changed my life. I began to use these techniques to co-create my reality. At first, I had to fake it because I was still a little skeptical, but now I can attest to the use of this practice and even have passed it along to my students. To some, this may be a very airy-fairy way of thinking but if you are a dorky science geek like me, you know that this has way more to do with quantum mechanics and much less to do with all things esoteric. In an attempt to clear up any residual baggage, this book has found its way into my life.
It’s all about trapped emotions and how to clear them in order to continue on the journey of self-actualization. Here’s a little nugget that further supports my thoughts that we really do create our realities simply by the messages with which we barrage ourselves on a daily basis.
So, this got me to thinking. This is a lot of pressure to constantly be positive and focus on gratitude while at the same time continually be telling myself “You CAN do this!” Negative self talk and doubt have no place in this equation. Let the reprogramming begin!
