Law of Attraction in Action: Using Your Imagination

This is post 198 in my series on the Law of Attraction in Action. You CAN use your power to manifest your desires.. I do it every day! Read all the posts in my Law of Attraction in Action Series to see how.

How’s your imagination? Do you limit yourself because you can’t see positive possibilities for the future? If you make the effort, you can use your imagination to see it. When there’s something you want to manifest, picture it happening in your head. See it, feel it, enjoy the picture. If not, what you want isn’t as strongly in your mind as it could be. And it needs to be strongly in your thoughts for the Law of Attraction to pick up on it.

I’ve had clients who longingly but wistfully, told me what they wanted. But they just couldn’t picture it happening. For example, Rod told me his plans for the business he wanted to start. It was something he could do on the side and then leave his job if it began to make good money. I agreed that it was a great idea and encouraged him to try. But he countered by telling me while he wanted it a lot, and knew he could do a good job, he just couldn’t picture it happening.

He went on to tell me all the obstacles he pictured. Negative are always easier to imagine!

He imagined all the reasons not to do it and that kept him from even trying to imagine what it would be like to have it.  Rod was his own roadblock for not getting started. He couldn’t let his imagination go wild and picture the life he wanted actually coming to fruition. He couldn’t imagine that he could actually just work for himself, even though he acknowledged he was good at what he did.

Often we can’t imagine great things because our past disappointments and failures are still I our consciousness and therefore we’re scared to imagine good stuff happening if it never did before. But the more your imagination sees what you want, the more your mind is in tune for the Law of Attraction to work to bring you what you want. So put your imagination to work and manifest more!

    Albert Einstein said that our imagination is a preview to life’s coming attractions. I find that to be very true. You’re right in saying that sometimes the negative thoughts get in the way. However, the more we imagine the positive, the more it replaces those negative thoughts. Thank you for another excellent read : )

Ditch the Victim Mentality
A common thread among clients who come to me for self-empowerment counseling is “Why do people use me?” And they groan, “Why me?” And they whine, “I’ll never get what I want because of _____.”  I tell them to fill in that blank with, “because I allow myself to be a victim.” People
