so often i feel as though people try and stop us from getting what we want.
people say that we shouldn’t want things.
they say that a good life takes a lot hard work. and that if you’re actually spiritual and enlightened that you shouldn’t want nice things like a cool house, lots of money, a good job, etc.
and because of this, the spiritual community is suffering.
we hurt ourselves into believing a spiritual life is a poor one.
i’m speaking from experience when i say that you can be both ‘spiritual’ and ‘rich’.
and we can substitute the word rich for abundance, because being rich has a lot more to do than the number in your bank account.
i believe that we are here to experience it all and that we should be able to have whatever it is that’s aligned with our higher selves. and trust me, lots of nice things, beautiful views, great relationships, sexy bodies, etc are aligned with your higher self.
he best way i’ve learned to effortlessly attract the things that i want is from the deliberate practice of visualization.
visualization is similar to meditation except the goal is not to clear your mind and stop all thoughts. instead, with visualization the goal is to put your attention on a scene- a set of images, experiences you wish to have in ‘real’ life. and by putting your focus and thoughts and energy on a vision, it must come true due to the law of attraction.
im sure all of you have heard of the law of attraction. it’s one of those spiritual buzz terms that became popular a few years ago.
but do we really understand the implications of what this law means?
do we understand that there is a law at play during every moment of our existence that states ‘ what we focus on, expands'?
this law of attraction works every single time and it is consistent. similar to the law of gravity, the law of attraction is happening and working on us when we are unaware that this law even exits so yes, you have been using the law of attraction since the day you were born, you were just using in unconsciously.
in. every event, situation, good and bad thing that has ever happened to you has come from your thoughts, which change your vibration, which changes the things you are experiencing..
so just imagine what is possible in your life when you not only know how to use this law but when you apply it.
i still remember my first time learning about visualization….
oh the possibilities that ran through my head.
so i wanted to share some quick tips on how to visualize better and even let you download some visualizations that i wrote and recorded for myself.
why is visualization important?
this is the tool that is so deceivingly simple that people assume it wont actually work. but the thing is, it works. i’ve used visualization to heal my skin, to fall more in love with my body, to bring my soulmate into my life, to attract more money making opportunities, and the list goes on and on.
visualization is actually working all the time, for all of us, and it has been since the day we were born.
your thoughts will not stop, but you can direct your thoughts to happier and healthier things and from that you will attract a much more fulfilling life.
the first way i started to manifest things into my life without even knowing it, was when i was starting to use pinterest.
I started use images to visualize the life that i wanted.
and i want to show you evidence of this.
the picture on the left is a picture i pinned a few years ago of some random girl walking in kauai.
the picture on the right is a picture is of me walking a similar path in kauai.
this is just one example to show you that the images and visuals that you put your focus and attention on will be attracted into your life.
if you want, feel free to check out my pinterest. you will see how my life turned out exactly like the pictures i was pinning.
all i pinned were pictures of tan girls in bathing suits, ocean views, sunsets, animals, good looking men with dark features, simple homes with white kitchens… and now i have all of these things.
when i came to this realization, it got me thinking. it got me thinking about how i can streamline the process of using images to attract the life i want. and this process is visualization.
what is the science behind visualization?
there is a lot of people right now figuring out that the mind-body connection is not just a spiritual belief, but also backed by science.
a study revealed that visualizing working out is almost as effective as actually going to the gym to workout.
“people who went to the gym with people who carried out virtual workouts in their heads”. He found that a 30% muscle increase in the group who went to the gym. However, the group of participants who conducted mental exercises of the weight training increased muscle strength by almost half as much (13.5%).
but ricky (my boyfriend) and i have our own studies that prove visualization works. i’ll let ricky tell you the story. he is the first one that turned my on to how important visualization is.
‘ well, i used visualization to attract my soulmate into my life aka claire. i’m a firm believer that life is one giant love story and finding my partner was important to me. so i sat down one day and wrote out all of the things that i wanted in a soulmate and i go really, really specific too. i wrote out things like “ she will be as tall as me, she will have long blond hair, green eyes, a tattoo, she will surf, she will be successful at whatever it she does, she will be an artist and a singer and a painter, she will have the voice of an angel, she will be an animal lover and she will walk around barefoot and care a lot about the foods she puts in her body” and than i recorded a visualization of me attracting my soulmate into my life and listened to it every morning for about a month.
until one day, i’m walking into whole foods and i run directly into claire. the rest is history.’
and this is just my favorite and most meaningful story of how we used visualization to attract our life, but these events are happening all day.
how to visualize better?
sit down in a private place, cross your legs, close your eyes, plug in your headphones.
set a clear intention before you start of the results you want to achieve.
and remember, the goal is not to just see pictures and images in your mind.
the goal is to feel the emotions that these images bring up.
for example, if you want to attract more money and abundance, you would want to feel what it would feel like to already have the money aka a feeling of joy, safety, excitement, and satisfaction.
because at the end of the day this is what you’re after anyway. a feeling of inner-peace and happiness. so the longer you can stay in a state of happy, the more happy you must, by law, bring into your life.
the main takeaway: focus on feeling.
we are energy. we attract the vibration that we are spewing out into the world. if our vibration is focused on the lack of money for example, that we will attract this lack.
but if our vibration is focused on abundance, that abundance is what we will attract.
in order to make things simpler for us, just focus on feeling good.
good brings more good.
try this visualization on healing your skin.
i starting making visualizations for myself to improve certain aspects of my life.
i knew that if i spent time each day giving focus on the things that i want to attract that they will come true. and they have.
click below to try out my favorite visualization.
the reason why i’m giving you this visualization is because skin is the most sensitive organ on the body and is easily influenced by thoughts. so you will be quick to see your skin improve and your self-love flourish.
and skin is a perfect ‘gateway’ drug to really understanding and seeing the mind-body connection at work.
and once this door is open, the door to your power, you will be visualizing every single day.
i will send this meditation to your fb messenger because this is the best way for us to communicate if you need any assistance with the visualization or have any questions at all.
and if you want more info on healing your skin i’ve created a 30 day skin healing challenge. in the first week, over 250 people joined the challenge. and people are loving it!
