I coach an average of four people a week in "reality creation". Most of them initially focus their words on entirely unwanted thoughts and stories. They are all familiar with my teachings, but as if they had never heard of them, they go "I`m not good at that", "I have difficulty with that", "My problem is...", "My limitations are...", "I've had a really hard time with...". I have rarely heard a session  begin with "I am healthy" "I am talented" "I am happy" "I am beautiful" "I am free" "I am successful" "I am passionate" "I am secure" "I am generous" or similar positive self-descriptions. thoughts   The words you speak and write have creative, self-defining power. Your words become your destiny. The words you speak about yourself, others and life either uplift or drag down. I don't mind when a student briefly describes the problems he is facing. I am referring here to the automatic and unconscious self-definitions people utter. A recent student repeated the following four times throughout our 1 hour session: "I lack energy. I am tired all the time". Not once did she say "I would like to be fresh and energized and awake throughout the day". So as a coach, I kept providing that statement. I explained to her that she should start repeating that thought instead. And what if she didn't believe in that statement? Why should she say that if she doesn't believe it? In that case she should repeat it until she believes it. And what if she still doesn't believe it? Then she should choose positive statements she does believe. If for example "I am fresh and energized" is difficult for her to believe, she could start with "I would like to be fresh and energized". A reality-creation session often begins with describing what you want in more and more detail, not what you don't want. For this I usually ask a lot of questions aimed to focus a person in that direction. The next step is to help them identify with what they want, to move from mere "wanting" to a feeling of "already having". The third step is to think from, act from and speak from the new reality henceforth. But in my experience, even just the first step of shifting from the unwanted to the wanted can present a challenge. So after a few minutes of focusing on what is wanted, some will try to steer back to their old, familiar reality with shifting statements such as these: "But let me explain the issue" "Can I first tell you why I have these issues?" "Yes, but there is a little problem". "I think its better to describe the problem first, so that you understand my situation" Even if I keep reminding them that attention should be on the new-story and that I have little interest in supporting their old stories, they might find a way around it, in an attempt to turn the coaching-session into a therapy-talk of past upsets rather than a reality creation talk of future dreams. Why is this the case? It is because old and familiar realities feel more real, comfortable and strong. New thoughts and life-stories feel vague, weak and unreal. Why? Because they haven't been given any attention. They are on familiar terrain when talking about "issues". They go into the unknown when crafting new realities. Some peoples old realities are so charged with emotion, that I allow them to talk-negative for a while, to release some of that charge. But I won't allow those stories for too long, because anyone in a bad situation really needs to invest some energy into new stories. If they have been telling their old stories for the last 30 years, its high time to tell new stories for the next 30 years. Negative thinking is much less of an issue than negative talking. Having bad thoughts is one thing. Expressing those bad thoughts another. Thoughts in and of themselves don't have that much power. But once they are expressed, their energy increases, with much more rapid effects than mere thought. You may not have much control of your thoughts, but you always have control of your speech. Consider the following "common causes of death" statistics: common causes of death   I find it fascinating that war, murder and accidents are not common causes of death. Problems of the heart are the most common cause. In my view, this is because humans biggest problem is lack of love and kindness. The lack of love begins in their own unloving words toward themselves and others. If you are smart you will guard your words and never make negative verbal self-descriptions again. And if for some reason you think you have to provide descriptions and stories of unwanted realities, then at least don't emotionalize, sensationalize or exaggerate them. Your words tend to manifest when you are firmly identified and associated with them. They tend not to manifest when you are their de-identified observer. This is why "I am"-statements that you believe in, have the strongest effect. "I am"-statements that are followed by and demonstrated through corresponding actions have the very highest energy to form reality. The Top 10 Teachings of Reality Creation 1. In life, you don't get what you want, you get who you are. 2. There are many versions of you and you can choose to step into your next-higher-version. 3. There are many levels-of-consciousness and you can ascend them all. 4. You can attract a new reality by focusing thought, word and deed on a specific outcome. 5. Releasing only one heavy emotion, releases thousands of accompanying thoughts. 6. Negative emotions are released by letting them "run out" and "un-stack" without resistance. 7. Most realities can be created through personal will. When the limits of personal will are reached, then allow divine will to work its magic. 8. All lack comes from desire and resistance. 9. A tree is known by its fruit and truth is measured by results. 10. In Unconditional Love all things are possible. Belief requires no Proof Reality Creation is the art of believing in something you can’t see, you have no proof for. Instead of the common dictum of "I`ll believe it when I see it" you say "I`ll see it when I believe it". Do not rely on your eyes too much. They show you reality as it has already been created. Your eyes do not show you the reality that is in the process of manifesting, but what has already manifested. All your eyes can show you is the past. By relying too much on what you see, you believe most strongly in what already-is and therefore keep attracting into your life what already-is. If you wish to attract new things you need to put your attention to something other than only what you see in front of you. The purpose of faith is to build your trust in the invisible. The eyes are very much connected to the mind/ego. They deliver mostly self-centered and emotional data. Your eyes might deceive you to eat something that looks good but isnt. If you judge your new partner only by how they look, you may be missing vital pieces of info about them (which is why it is not that bad to get to know a new partner on the phone or the internet). Of course their looks will teach you something but so will the way they sound and feel. Faith is the trusting in things that cannot be seen.  This point is lost on scientific-materialists who keep emphasizing that only that which can be seen and measured is of importance. While this certainly applies to matter, it should not apply to humans. You cannot “prove” love in a laboratory, and yet you love. You cant be certain you will be paid for a job, but you do the job trusting that you will. You cant be certain every car on the roads will follow the rules but most of the time they do and you trust that they do. I sometimes feel sorry for those who call us “idiots who believe in fairy tales”. They think they are incredibly smart in their ridicule. But the whole point of believing in fairy tales is to train your belief-muscle, to reach out into the intangible and invisible. That’s the only way something formerly impossible becomes possible. To calm the mind, close your eyes. To calm the mind, focus on sound. To know whether he/she is the right one for you, listen to him/her speak on the phone, rely not only on what you see. To know whether a deal is good, listen to your heart, dont rely only on what things appear to be. When judging a book, pay attention not only to the cover. Over-reliance on what is visible is a huge limitation. Advertisers who seek to manipulate your emotions talk about making things look good all the time. Why? Because they know people rely on what they see more than anything else. "Seeing is Believing" is nonsense. A few obvious things we all know exist which are invisible: The Air and Wind You can't see the Air and Wind, but you notice its effects in your hair and in the way the leaves rustle. Music You can't see music but it influences your state. Love You can't see Love. Nor can you measure it in a laboratory. Nor can you "scientifically prove" that its real. Yet you know it. Thoughts You can't measure them or prove them. Strictly speaking you can't see or hear them with your eyes or ears. And yet, they are real. In a way you can "see/hear" them with an inner sense. Temperature I certainly cant see temperature, but I can feel it. Gravity I cant see gravity, and it may never have occurred to us that it exists had we not had the comparison outside of earth. The force that keeps us from floating around does exist. The next time you hear someone say "Seeing is Believing" tell him about gravity, temperature, thoughts, music, love, the air and the numerous other things that exist without us "seeing" them. Before we even venture into ideas of ghosts, spirits and angels there is plenty going on in the invisible world. You cant see wind but you know it exists because you can see its effects. Likewise you cant see beliefs but you know they exist because you can see their effects. Belief requires no proof. You have no "proof" that the sun will rise tomorrow morning, and yet you base your entire day on the idea that there will be a tomorrow. You trust. If you can apply the same trust to your true hearts wish, it will come true. Wanting vs. Having Can you tell the difference between wanting and having? You cant stand up and sit down at the same time. Likewise you cant want and have at the same time. Wanting is the initial spark, but sooner or later you must feel that you can actually have the particular things you have been wanting. When you find yourself thinking too much  you can be sure you are are immersed in Wanting, whether you know it or not. An Experiment: 1. Think of something you want. Notice what it feels like to want that thing. 2. Imagine already having that or being able to have it. Notice what that feels like. Move back and forth between the two states a few times, to teach your body-mind the difference. You decide whether to concentrate on wanting or one step higher being-able-to-have. "I am able to have" is more empowering than "I want" and for some even more empowering than "I already have" because it keeps the excitement of the "want" without taking its lack-feeling (whereas "I already have", if misunderstood, can take the excitement out for some) Thinking makes it so I recently read about a scientific experiment on wine testing. They had cheap wine,the same cheap wine labeled as expensive and actual expensive wine for people to test. All participants were having their brains scanned but none of them knew what the test was about. They only knew what the wines cost (or believed they cost). Not surprisingly, the cheap wine was thought to taste bad and the expensive wine was thought to taste good. The cheap wine labeled as expensive was also said to taste good. But here is what is surprising: The brain-scans indicated that not only was the cheap-wine-labeled-expensive thought to taste better, it actually did taste better to the participants. The cheap wine and the cheap-wine-labeled-expensive were the exactly same wine but they tasted different to the participants. The brain-readings indicated that the participants taste-buds were effected differently, not only their thoughts. So here is what appears to happen: Participant sees price tag and expects a better taste. The thought that it will taste better, creates a better taste. Or as Shakespeare said: "There is no good or bad but thinking makes it so". However, the experiment still revealed that the actually expensive wine actually tasted the best of all three, independent of the persons thoughts. That brings us back to the mysterious realm between subjective and objective reality. It is my view that the relationship is around 50-50. Hence, if you rummage around in a garbage bin, you wont get that smell off of you no matter what you believe. To perceive reality and energy-levels as they really are, you would have to be thoughtless, neutral, without expectation. To release an old reality you'd have to apply neutral attention to it. To create a new reality you'd have to develop positive expectations. Embrace the Unexpected You've probably heard the saying "Gods ways are mysterious". This also very much applies to the way goals and dreams come true. Reality Creation means to set a goal and repeat or focus on it until it comes true. But the manner in which it comes true is rarely what the Ego expects. Unless you work with conventional goal-setting and action steps, RC-Manifestations often take place when least expected. Don't give up on your exciting goals just because it look as if your life is taking another direction. The way things look on the outside is deceiving and there are often entirely different things going on in a realm invisible to the physical eyes. Embrace surprise, never fear the unknown. Examples of this emerge regularly for me. Just a few weeks ago I reluctantly accompanied an acquaintance of mine to the doctor, which was a waste of time in my opinion because I thought to know that she is perfectly healthy and also because I had more important things to do. But I relaxed my aversion toward going and resolved to enjoy it. Lounging around in the waiting room I struck up a conversation with a sanskrit-expert...this was precisely what I had been looking for to help me with a writing project. In fact I had written down that very intention just a few days ago, and here its manifestation awaited me at a place most unexpected! The key to such synchronicities is that you relax your resistance toward life and allow it to take you places. Because if your Intentions are clearly stated, life will take you there, even if you can't see how. Sudden Reality Shifts Sometimes thing get worse before they get much better. Why might that be? It's because creating a brand new reality can mean tampering with the status quo. Sometimes an old building needs to be disassembled before a new one can be built in its place. Over the years I have modified my teachings because it was noticed that my techniques can be "too much". Their sheer power  really did create rapid and radical change, overhauling students realities within only a few days. Back in the years 2004-2006 I taught this way. For example one student would use my parallel-universe-technique for a "new job creation" and got fired immediately upon returning to work. He called me on that Monday in total disarray: "Its not working! I got fired from my job! I cant believe they just kicked me out!" and I responded: "Its working perfectly. It is a NEW job that you created and for that the old one has to be dropped". Of course he did get his new and much improved job a few weeks later, but being unfamiliar with rapid movement of energy it was nerve-wracking for him. I recall a woman I was coaching at that time who defined "rapid weight loss" has her primary intention. She wanted to lose 10 pounds over the three day workshop. And she did lose several pounds, but she suffered excruciating stomach cramps and diarrhea throughout the whole course. She left the course many pounds thinner but also exhausted. What was the mistake? Well first of all she could have added that her weight loss ought to be easy or a pleasant experience. But more importantly, she could have defined one month as a proper goal for 10 pounds, as not to overwhelm her body. Here's the deal: Spirit can process more than the mind, the mind can process more than the body. So spirit and mind may be ready for that radical and rapid change, but the physical universe, including your body and nervous system, may need a little more time. When you toy with the advanced techniques, you should be prepared for the fact that they work. And because they work, many shy away from using them, quickly retreating back into their familiar comfort-zones where no change occurs. So the manner in which I have modified my teachings is simply to allow change to be slower and more gentle. Incremental change is easier to deal with than radical revolutions and far-out miracles. Are there any exceptions to this rule? Of course there are. If you are a stable person with a firm footing in daily life reality, you can more easily deal with rapid change. Sudden reality shifts are possible, but not always desirable. Be careful what you wish for, it will come to be. Believing is Seeing Walking the streets of where I live I always encounter a couple who also live in the area. We stop and chat about this and that and then go our merry way. Sometimes we have lunch together. At one point I told them I was leaving for the United States in January 2012 and would live there for a year or so. It turned out that it was summer before I left to the U.S. But interestingly, from January on, the couple did not see me walking around those streets anymore. I saw them, but they did not see me. A few times I walked right past them and they did not see me. It was because they believed I was no longer in town. They were so very convinced that I no longer lived there that they no longer saw me. Belief powerfully filters perception. I have encountered this phenomenon many times. If you do not believe something or even consider it, you will not perceive it or opportunities that lead to it. That's why its good to give your mind real-life examples of what  you would like to experience. If you can't present real examples of a reality to your mind, body and subconscious, you may not be able to experience it. Tuning your Frequency to the reality you prefer The reality you experience corresponds to the frequency you are attuned to. In any given situation you see other things than the person standing beside you because you are tuned in to a different energy-frequency. There is an objective reality, but which aspect or angle of it you notice is subjective. If you program your attention to look for danger, you will notice potential danger everywhere. If you program your attention to look for coins, you will notice anything resembling gold while you walk along the beach. What you notice or do not notice has a lot to do with your intention and beliefs. If you wish to notice everything or walk around in a state of heightened awareness, then its best to have zero beliefs and zero intentions. But if you want to find certain things, you simply program an intention and that will filter your perception to notice opportunities, paths and the intended item itself. If something keeps happening to you over and over again, its because you are radiating it, you are on a frequency conducive to it. For example you might keep finding fault with other people. In that case its time to take a good look at your own faults. If you go from room to room and you smell shit everywhere, maybe its because the shit is on your own nose and not at all "out there" or on other people. In many ways life is like a radio dial or a TV-Set. You can't possibly perceive or experience something if you are not tuned into that channel. Being "tuned in" to a channel means giving it proper time and attention to familiarize yourself with it, connect to it, become intimate and close to it, to understand it and know about it and doing just the opposite with realities you wish to dissolve - no longer juicing them, describing them, no longer learning about them or trying to push them away. Whatever you are attuned to you keep experiencing over and over and over again. If a year later you are experiencing the very same argument you had with a person, thats the moment you can admit and recognize that your frequency hasn't really changed in a certain aspect. If however a brand new type of conversation develops, you know its because you have become a different person. Humanity Subdued Humanity is mostly in a subdued state, enslaved by their own attachments and aversions. This process is expedited by the circus of mass-entertainment-media created for short attention-spans and to reinforce those attachments and aversions. My job as a life coach is to help the individual lift themselves up out of the tired world-mind. The main method of doing so is to overcome beliefs of lack and limitation. How? By letting go of the preoccupation with such. "Tell me what you lack and I can tell you what you are preoccupied with". How else? By helping people understand that effort is not an expending of energy but its collector. When you invest effort in anything at all, you are accumulating energy and strength, not depleting it. Depletion of energy comes from resistance, not effort. It is my job to help people create new realities. How? By teaching them the art of unwavering belief. Unwavering  belief is high concentration and always influences physical reality.Subdued humanity must learn that sometimes more is achieved by spending days without a phone, computer or car and instead developing the powers of their mind. Another important thing to learn is that ones own capacity is subdued by complaining. All those daily complaints do nothing to elevate your energy. They make you smaller and smaller...until finally you become just as small as the people you are complaining about. I do the job that psychologists and priests are supposed to be doing but are limited in doing because they have often get caught up in abstraction. The psychologist is too focused on problems and the priest too focused on the afterlife to teach worldly success. Nevertheless there is no proper success coaching without a spiritual dimension. The more difficult you are to subdue and get down, the higher your level of consciousness. But even someone of high enthusiasm-for-life can be subdued with repeated disappointment, hardship and discouragement. Unless they make the firm intention never to allow opposition to exhaust them, never allow life to beat them down. If you make the intention to learn something new every day and never be content with the status quo , you have set your inner compass to go in the general upward direction for the rest of your life. Sometimes you think your windshield looks just fine...until the sun comes out and exposes all the dirt on it. Its similar with Awareness. When your awareness grows, the first thing you usually see is more darkness...but with that also the capacity to remove that darkness, to wipe the windshield. Thats why growth upwards may first be accompanied by difficulty before resting into a new plateau of ease. The Think-Big Technique The think-big-technique is an exercise in controlled megalomania. It is based on the precept that you magnetically attract into your life what you radiate outwards in thought, word and deed. I say "controlled megalomania" to separate it from delusional behavior or magical thinking. Use the technique in moderation to heighten your personal "vibratory frequency" but without the inner attachment/expectation of rapidly achieving whatever grandiose idea you envision. The idea behind this is "aim for the stars to reach the moon". If reaching the moon seems difficult, then aim for the stars and the moon will seem much easier to reach. The think-big-technique allows you to stretch your imagination for a brief period of time, before you rest it in everyday consciousness again. The reason it should be done in moderation (I use it once or twice a year) is because holding a level too high for too long (higher than your nervous system and belief-system can process in short-time) can cause backlash, strain and the typical "positive thinker" delusion that denies the yin-yang nature of everyday life. Its is better to scale yourself upwards from say, level 4 to level 8 slowly and gradually rather than try to shoot up all at once. The think-big-technique allows you to shoot up fro 4 to 8 instantly but also recommends that you dont try that too often but choose 4 to 5 or 4 to 6 instead. Once you are comfortable at level 7 you can and should of course aim for 8 frequently. I`ll give you a real-life example of how this works. A few years ago I put an ad in a glossy self-development magazine. I normally dont advertise at all, much less at the high price this newsstand magazine asked, but I was using the think-big-technique and that called for brand new action. In that ad, I said that I take $50 000 Dollars for one day of coaching. People who knew that back then I usually took between $400 and $800 for a day, thought I had gone "insane" . I did not get any responses to that ad (which had cost me $700), however, that one instance of thinking in much bigger dimensions that I had been used to magnetically attracted a whole host of other things. One of them was that one of the editors of the magazine noticed my add and asked if they could do an article and interview on me for their half a million readers. I guess that a coach/consultant asking $50 000 a session made an impression on him. In any case, my return was much higher than my investment of $700. Looking back today, I can honestly say that $50 000 does not feel "think big" anymore. That means my energy-frequency has reached a level regarding money in which that amount seems normal. If I'd do the same exercise again, I`ll have to ask $500 000 for a session for it to feel outrageous. You can always feel what your level of belief in something is by trying on a bigger one. And a bigger one and bigger one, until you reach your personal threshold of belief. The think-big-technique asks of you to exercise your mind to think, feel, see and act in more expanded, more confident, "highest version of you" terms. So in using the technique, choose to think and act-on something that assumes a far more bright and successful reality than your current status. Get outrageous. Enjoy it. And see what happens. Weightless Enthusiasm Weightless Enthusiasm does not come from what you are DOING. Its an inner attitude that grows with the releasing of resistance. You could be filling out tax-forms, painting the house or attending hard negotiations and still feel it. If you feel drained or burdened by the tasks and daily inconveniences of life, what is required of you is a shift in attitude. If you have not cultivated this attitude then it does not matter where you are, with who you are, where you are going and what you are doing. Much of anything will feel boring or burdensome after awhile. Sometimes, when I am called upon to do a difficult task I might start out with some resistance. After half an hour of grumbling the resistance might turn into acceptance. Another half an hour of the task and I might start singing and dancing while I do it. And another half an hour I might be enthusiastic at doing it and miss it if it stops. What happened? I went through a shift of attitude where I embraced what is at hand rather than denying it. "Yes, but I'd rather avoid these tasks altogether rather than trying to make them feel nice" many tell me. But that misses the whole point. You will be having less of those unwanted tasks once you have transcended your resistance. Its the resistance that keeps them stuck like glue, because resistance = extreme focus and magnetically attracts whatever it is you dislike. So what are some of the tasks you do on a regular basis that you dont like at all? If you know what they are, the next question is: How could you be in a state of weightless enthusiasm while doing them? Converting popular songs into intention-affirmations Repeating thoughts programs your mind to certain ideas, beliefs and emotions. Therefore every popular song that repeats refrains combined with melody acts as an affirmation that programs your reality. We often copy various songs and make them our own without even thinking about their contents. Of course we often do the same with beliefs we get from parents, friends and the media - simply accepting them without question. When I ride along in someones car its sometimes unpleasant to listen to the radio because I am actually aware of what is being said in the song lyrics. Within a recent 40 minute drive when a friend picked me up from the airport, the following themes were communicated (yes, I actually took notes): "I am so lonely, I need someone tonight or else I will die" "I am going to pop my fist into a police officers face" "I am going to get drunk and pass out" "I can never make up for what I did" "Why won't you call me" "Who knows what is what" "I cant take it anymore" Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't these thoughts sound like someone who is really depressed? With such negativity flying around and being soaked up unquestioningly, you wonder how anyone arrives home safe. Of course, ultimately, this is not the fault of the artists or broadcasters. They play what people want to identify with. Its just another reflection of this planets level of consciousness, not something to fight against. But for you personally, you can become immune to negative programming merely by being aware of the messages being conveyed. Is it my intention for today to pop my fist into a police officers face or to feel suicidal because another person does not call me? No thanks. Understanding the effect of sound, melody, emotion, refrain and verbalized thought you can make use of various popular songs and re-phrase them to match your intentions. When I do this I usually do it with refrains. So if someone is singing "I'm falling into a hole" I make that to be "I'm falling into the whole" and if someone sings "Who's gonna ride your wild horses?" becomes "I`m gonna ride some wild horses" and "I can't take it anymore" becomes "I can take more and more" and "I want it all" becomes "I have it all". Treat Reality like something you Desired To get what you want, first want what you get. Treat reality, treat what-is, treat what happens to you as if it were something you desired. This has extraordinary effects. Every time you negate your experience you pretend you did not want it, you pretend you did not - on some level - create it. This is how you slowly build up the belief that you do not create reality, that you have no influence on what happens to you. You gradually become powerless. "I don't like that this happened" you say, as if you had no part in it."This happened because...", "I don't want this at all...", "My life is not at all what I want, because....". With every "because" that tries to explain another cause than yourself, you move further away from the radical responsibility required for reality creating. But if you treat reality...and especially problems...that happen to you as if they are exactly what you desired, you reverse the flow of energy. Rather than being a victim of problems and letting them pressure you, you act as if you were their creator. Then one of three things happens: The problem simply dissolves, or it becomes an asset, or it becomes a solution for something else. One persons "problem" is another persons solution. If for instance you thought too much rain was a problem, ask the umbrella-salesman if he feels the same way. If you thought too much sun was a problem, ask the sunshade salesman if he feels the same way. When rain and sun are treated like something desired, you see the opportunity they pose. See your current situation as precisely the situation you wanted and enjoy it thoroughly. Make the very best of it. Because of your gratitude toward what-IS, even more fortunate events are on their way to you. Your future is determined by what you radiate today. If you radiate unhappiness with what-is. you attract more unhappiness for the future. From a higher perspective you really did want whatever it is you are experiencing these days. Accept it, experience it, embrace it and then you can either leave it behind you or take it to its next higher level. Treat your current partner like your dream-partner. Treat your current Business like your dream-Business. Treat your current health-situation like exactly what you wanted, treat your current location like your dream-location...and then these things will reveal their beauty. If they are good for you, requests come true Recently I was walking with someone who was taking pictures of nice architecture. Her battery was empty just in the instant that she wanted to capture the nicest building around. I asked her to hand me the camera. I made sure the battery really was empty and then put it into my pocket, and, as if I was a magician, half-jokingly saying: "Having it in my pocket will reload it". I also sent out a cosmic request. The thought went something like "Please help me and reload the battery". With no external sources of electricity whatsoever, the battery was working again when I checked 5 minutes later and she could proceed to take her pictures. So is that miraculous or is it simply some technical error of the camera? I dont know. All I know is that I regularly manifest-by-request, almost habitually, and have a hit-rate of about 80% when I am in a playful (non-needy) mood like I was that day. Putting all the thousands of books that exist on the subject aside for a moment, its actually really as simply as this: Step One: Make a Request. Thats it:-) Its as simple as that. You can request anything...better sleep, a lucky turn of events, a new car, meeting someone interesting, getting the means to do what you like, etc. There is no limit to what you request, there is only a limit to what will manifest. Who are you requesting towards? You are requesting towards the most high, the ultimate field, God, the cosmic force. You are relying on that which is primary, not that which is secondary. The reason you dont get everything you request or dont get it in the way or at the time you think its supposed to come is because it would not be good for you. Source is like a parent. If you are a parent you know that you will gladly grant your children their wishes, except for those that harm them. As much as your child would love to jump into the lake to play with the crocodile, as much as they believe that is exactly what the want , you are probably not going to allow it. You will allow the things that are good for the childs development. Likewise, Source  has your best interests in mind when it responds to some requests and not to others. The more in-tune you are with yourself and reality, the more of your requests manifest.The further away you are from yourself, the less will manifest. In my opinion, if none of your requests manifest for you, you can assume that there is something protecting you from damage. Request and some of it will manifest. Send out many requests. Send out repeated requests. If a certain thing does not show up, send out a request for guidance on how it might show up or what is asked of you so that it shows up. Ive sent requests out since my childhood and if there is one thing I can say with certainty then its "They care and they are listening". You are Responsible for the Effort, not the Result Every new reality is crafted by investing energy/effort. Not over-effort, but just the right amount of investment. Put energy into something and you get a result back. Effort invested can take many shapes - gathering resources, studying, manual work, time, concentration, talk, thought, acting. The nugget of wisdom I wish to teach here is that you are responsible for the effort, not for the result. What does that mean and why do I say it? You focus attention on what you can control, rather than what you have no control of. You have full creative control of your efforts. That is under your jurisdiction. The statement helps you stop wasting your time with factors outside of your conscious and deliberate control. The connection between effort and result is not always apparent. You may have invested into A but received back from B. You may have worked many, many years on one thing, but reap rewards in an entirely different area. This is where it gets metaphysical: Energy is not linear and sometimes your investment into A gets you back rewards in B, C or E! The fallacy is to think that investing all of those hard efforts into A was for nothing. Metaphysics relates to the invisible forces shaping your reality and it pays off to know some spiritual-science if you wish to make sense of life. That means our efforts will always be rewarded - without exception, ever! - but that sometimes the reward comes from somewhere else than you think it "should". Case in point: I have been writing books for many years, but these books don't really make any money for me - at least not enough to survive. However, I am making plenty of money elsewhere. So normal thinking would say: "Then quit writing books and instead do more of what works!". But no, that is not how reality works. Would I quit following my Bliss by stopping to write books, the other sources of income - even if they have nothing to do with my books - would also decline. Why? Because joy generates energy and energy generates abundance.  Optimism is not the result of abundance, abundance is the result of optimism. Its all an "energy thing". "You are responsible for effort, not for result" also releases you from the burden of being responsible for others. You can give your best efforts to others - if they don't return the favor, that is not your fault. You will be rewarded from elsewhere. "You are responsible for effort, not for result" teaches you the art of "letting go" - you do not "let go" of the effort, you "let go" of exaggerated attachment to the result, let go of the "how, when and where" of its manifestation and instead focus on what can be orchestrated today. Bad Childhood? No Problem. Quit Blaming the Past.g If you wish to succeed dont blame the past for what you are doing today. The past has nothing to do with it. Even if you had a bad childhood that does not have to translate into a bad life. In fact I learned more from my negative experiences than the positive ones. Without some of the negative experiences I had as a child I would have never grown as strong and competent as I feel today. When I was thirteen my mom threw away all of my books on religious grounds. She was having a strange religious phase and my many non-Christian books were apparently an impediment to her religious practice. One day I came home from playing soccer with friends and my five book racks (yes, I was an avid reader) were empty. I was furious with disappointment, anger and shock. It was a life-defining moment. On that day I felt the resolve to not only read an insane amount of books but also write them. "Nobody is going to stop me from reading anything and everything". And from that day on the amount I read tripled. By the time I was 16 years old I had read almost the entire local library...Science, Religion, Metaphysics, Politics, History. As it is almost impossible to read that much without feeling the urge to write I already began writing back then and havent stopped since. So you see that this supposed "negative" event helped me to become an author. Without that "negative" event, where would I be today? Maybe Id be a book-dispatcher instead of a book writer, who knows. Most "negative" events are blessings from above. As a child Ive broken my arm, my nose, my leg, bruised and wounded every part of my body in play. I loved to give everything in play and sports even if it meant taking painful lessons. Im very glad I did not have overprotective parents who worried about me having "negative" experiences. I always assured my parents "Dont worry about me. I`ll be fine". And I always was. The popular idea that a bad childhood automatically leads to a bad life is a falsehood. Its all about my reaction to events. I can take negative events to feel like a victim or I can use them to grow. How your life goes has more to do with the Education you receive as a child or the education you give yourself (through reading, for example) than with the specific events of your life. Event X only has power over you if you let it. If you dont let that Event (whatever negative event you think determines your destiny) control you it will have no meaning at all. Viewpoint Shifting If you indoctrinate someone into a certain view of the world, he will interpret ALL events from through those glasses and be unable to ever see anything else. If you want to predict what someones stance on any given topic will be all you have to know is his belief-system. If event X happens you could easily predict the stance any politican will have on it, for example. The reality-creator however, is unpredictable, flexible, able to occupy any viewpoint. He has fixed values and virtues but is also able to view things from other positions or from a neutral standpoint. In this way he learns more and sees more than everyone else. How so? Well, if you see the street only from the viewpoint of standing on your balcony, you will only see certain parts and aspects of the street. Looking at the same street from other viewpoints you find out more about it. The same principle applies to mental viewpoints: Opinions, Beliefs, Positions. Practically speaking the reality-creation-wizard would spend a few months or years with one position and "learn it" and then spend a few months with the opposite position and "learn that". And then he might choose a third position beyond the two. This would either be a balanced position or one that goes beyond the two. He would enjoy being rich and being poor, being fat and being thin, being free and being united, being up then being down, being left and being right, being small and being big, being in control and letting go and so on. Any aversion toward any position whatsoever is a limitation to a soul that is everything and all - infintely and eternal. Once one has owned all positions, at least mentally, one is not only beyond any conflict ("your position is wrong), beyond any limitation ("I am poor, I am not rich") but can easily choose which reality and which values are most preferred. Note: The souls ability to have, be and do anything it likes is interpreted by some people as "everything goes". But thats not what it means. Add to that "what you put out is what you get back" (law of attraction) and it should read "You can have, do, be anything you like as long as it is in respect of others and the world around you" (integrity). Subjective and Objective Reality Creation Your thoughts and beliefs are so powerful that they distort what you perceive. An example: Suppose someone you know enters the room and doesn’t say a word. Not a “hello”, not a nod, nothing. In that instant, your mind is creating several possible “meanings” his behavior could have. There is the objective reality of a person entering the room without speaking, but then there is the self-created, subjective reality of the meaning you ascribe to that event. And that subjective creation will determine what you perceive, what you feel and what you do. It is safe to say that your subjective creation of reality impacts at least 50% of what is happening. So you could give the following thoughts/meanings to this event: “He is angry at me, because I did wrong” “He is angry and needs help” “He is in a bad mood” “He is lost in thought” “He is very relaxed” “He is being playful” “He is meditating”. Regardless of the objective truth that he is experiencing, whatever belief or thought you project, will color whatever is happening. If you believe “He is angry because I did wrong” you will feel guilt, project that guilt-vibe onto him and he might start forming an opinion against you. If you believe “He is angry and needs help” you will develop compassion instead of fear and he might become responsive to your helping hand. The more optimistic among you will not automatically assume that he is “in a bad mood”. If you think “He is being contemplative” you will remain relaxed and might elicit a relaxed response from him. The belief you hold will also impact what decisions and actions you take, culminating in a whole chain of events from that point on. Reality is a mix of objective and subjective events and this information will help you regain 100% control of subjective events which in turn will give you a 50% handle over reality. That is more power than 90% of earth’s population who have not learned the art of reality creation. To help you discern between objective and subjective, let’s look at this example some more. Suppose he is really angry at you but you do not believe he is. You are sitting in your chair humorously and optimistically. Which reality will manifest? The answer is: A mix of both. By your radiation of humor  his anger will be neutralized to some extent. If that radiation is very high it may neutralize his anger at you entirely. But if he is angry at you and you also feel guilty because you really did do something wrong, the consequence will likely be that he will express his full anger and you will feel your full guilt. If you objectively and really did something wrong, then it is quite appropriate that you feel guilty for the time being. But if you did not really do anything wrong that you would be aware of, then feeling guilt is based on what a “limiting belief”. What will happen if he is in a good mood but you label his silence as meaning “he is in a bad mood”? Well, that can lead to his view of you shifting for the worse. If you really did something wrong, then it would be a misuse of this teaching to “change your belief”. Let’s say you steal something from him and then change your belief into “Well, I didn’t actually steal anything from him” or “Stealing is OK, he deserves it”. That is nonsense because it devalues the existence of any objective, universal standard (namely that harming other humans is not good) and tries to impose a change of thought over an already-objective reality. “Limiting beliefs” in this case might be “I can never make it up to him” and “I am a loser for life”. Those can be changed so that your experience of him and the situation improves. So when working with beliefs it is helpful to discern between what is subjective and what is objective. Sadly, most books and programs on the subject fail to make this distinction thus creating confusion and a lack of grounding in reality. Frequency Matching If there is something bothering you that you have been unable to let go of by any other means, then" match its frequency", tune-in to what exactly it is. This has also been called "Being with what-is". It has also been referred to as "Confession", "Authenticity", "Being Real", "Identifying With...", "Merging With", "Becoming One With" and "Fully Feeling". When you match the energy of something, you regain control over it. Properly done it is a great, great relief. So if for example your spouse has been bothering you for a long time, it would be good to write out what exactly is bothering you about him/her to the fullest, without holding back, masking, ignoring or resisting any aspect of it. When you fully admit to what it is that is bothering you, the result may be shocking or really hateful, but it is better that comes to light than remains in the subconscious. Not wanting to admit to the sheer negativity of subconscious material is one of the reasons it stays subconscious. What is conscious can no longer dominate you. "Writing it all out", "Admitting to it all", etc. is one way of frequency matching. Another way of frequency matching is to mirror, imitate, emulate or copy whatever it is you are afraid of. I once helped someone who was afraid of spiders in this way. He was to be a spider, act out being a spider by crawling on the floor, feel as a spider, immerse himself into the spider world. Many layers of resistance were broken through before he could comfortably be a spider. Then, while being a spider, I pointed out another spider (making sure to transport one to the room before our session started). The phobic terror he had previously had, turned into a mere mild skepticism or distaste. He no longer had to leave the room when a spider was present. And while his dislike of spiders did not go away, the fear was swept away within a very short time, although he had been running around with it a whole lifetime. Just ONE confrontation with what-is can overcome a lifetime of avoidance. Another person was afraid of social gatherings, so we matched frequency by him mentally feeling and being various people at a social gathering and then creating and hosting a social gathering himself. Becoming the source of what he is afraid of ends him being its victim. At first he felt victim to social gatherings, now he was the source of a social gathering. Another way to handle this would have been to deliberately plunge himself into numerous social gatherings and notice their advantages, until he felt eager to be a part of them. Behind such fears there is often (but not always) the secret desire to be part of them. When problems remain and remain and remain, it is for two reasons: a) The have not been fully revealed c) What is wanted instead has not been fully focused on So if for example you and another keep having fights and arguments, you might say to me: "I have fully matched this anger and openly expressed everything I dislike about her! But we still have arguments every few days!" I will say that the anger was not fully matched or acknowledged. You may have expressed 80% of it, but if there is still 20% in the subconscious, there is no full frequency match. In the case of this person, what he was keeping in his subconscious was that he wanted to be angry at his spouse as an excuse to leave her because he was tired of her and wanted someone new. That was the 20% he was keeping hidden, But every time there was a fight with his spouse, he was expressing his anger at her faults, while keeping the root of the whole issue neatly tucked away. And so the issue perpetuated until one day he could have a divorce from her without even once acknowledging the true reason for the divorce. Once the frequency of something is "matched" and you fully acknowledge what-is, its time to shift focus to what is preferred, to the reality you want instead. Often this happens naturally as in "OK, whats next?". But if it doesn't happen naturally, then at some point there can be a deliberate shifting of attention to what you would like to experience instead. The instead-reality should be felt and experienced more strongly than the old reality. So if you made a full description of your anger, you make an even fuller written, verbal or visualized description of your peace. You then "match frequency" with your preferred reality. Reality Creating is nothing other than that. Once you can match your frequency to what you prefer and feel, think, speak, look, behave like it, you will easily attract it into your life. Manifesting a House If you wish to attract a new house by mind alone you're going to have to get away from the idea that manifesting a parking space or a dime is easier than manifesting a House. In the eyes of Infinity there is no difference. Enter the image of your perfect house in your Imagination. Walk around the House. Feel it. Touch it. Smell it. Let go of trying to get it. Let go of your wants. Enjoy the House. Let go of resenting your current living space. Be at peace. Later, throughout your days and weeks, dress and behave like someone already living in that house. Follow the leads you get. Request leads from the Universe. Be open for Miracles. Just because your life was a certain way for 10 years does not mean it has to be this and this way today. Say "Universe, thank you for giving me a lead today". And then watch what happens (Did you think this stuff is more complicated?). Most of you don't actually believe you can manifest a house with your mind alone, do you? Well, I believe so. But in case you dont you could at least trust that intensely Visualising a house will help you stay tuned to that goal and even attract beneficial circumstances as if by "luck". People always say to me: "Fred, you're so lucky". If only they knew that I have to Visualize up a storm for my "luck". Reality doesnt happen to you, it happens through you. Many years ago there was a woman called Sandra, who was in love with me. She wanted to manifest a House through Visualisation. But everytime I met her, the House hadnt manifefested yet. She had read books of mine, done all the techniques, had Visualized up a storm, sent prayer, acted-as-if-she is moving, gone to see many different Houses but still she did not find the House she likes, neither could she afford one. I started getting tired of her continued pleas for a new House. So one day I asked her: Do you believe that it will come true?" She assured me she does. I asked her a few more times that day and always she assured me that she believes in her Vision 100%. "Do you believe it will come true soon?". Again she assured me that it will manifest soon, that she holds "no doubt whatsoever". Knowing that she is madly in love with me, I then used a trick. I said to her: "The next time you see me will be in your new House". She didnt "get it" at first, so I became more specific: "You will not see me again unless you get that new House". "What???" she exclaimed. "You can't be serious!" "Why not? I am hoping that it will inspire you to manifest more quickly" I responded. I reaffirmed my new stance throughout the day and shortly thereafter she said to me: "Please, you can't do this to me. I will really miss you. This puts me under too much pressure." And I said: "Whats the problem? I thought you believe that your House will manifest soon?" In that instant she realized that she didnt really believe. Deep down she did not believe in its manifestation. She kept telling herself and others that she did believe, but it wasnt so. It is now a decade later and she does live in that House. Manifesting a Car A good friend of mine manifested his car through Visualisation.  I didnt. I just went out and bought my car. However, he wanted a specific light-blue oldtimer that was not readily available and that would have been very costly had he gotten it through normal channels. The first thing he did was go out and by a toy-model of the car to demonstrate his intention to the Universe. And then he visualized the Car once a week, with 100% faith. He insisted it was his and it was on its way. After awhile he forgot about the whole thing. I noticed because he quit mentioning it and his toy-model was collecting dust. Then, one day, it must of been a year later, he met a man who was a car-dealer for old-timers. Out of the blue and unexpected. My friend immediately felt "zinged", intuitively knowing that this was the path to his new car. So he agreed to visit the guys caryard. And there it was, exactly as he had envisioned it. I have no idea what had gotten into the seller, but my friend got it for $ 1500 Dollars instead of the $20 000 Dollars that could have been asked for it. I knew thats what could have been asked for it, but my friend didnt know that was the expected price. Because he was naive, he did not believe in that limitation. And he got his car. For some, manifesting a car doesn't take a year, it takes a week. I recall how a student of mine visualized a car every day and a week later her daughter just bought her the car as a gift...without knowing that mommy was imagining it! You don't necessarily need money in order to get what you like. Focussing exclusively on money is a limitation. The belief that your car can only come through money is wrong. Goods can come from anywhere and at any time. Manifesting a Partner Romantic Love is a sign of Higher Consciousness. It means someone views a Relationship to another as something spiritual, something deeper, something more mysterious than mere chemical reactions. Romantic Love does not see the other person as a mere tool for sex or someone to marry for the sake of convention, but as the Spiritual Being they really are. One of the reasons a soul wants to come to earth is in order to have such an experience. A soul is born with almost complete amnesia of its existence as a soul. And finding a "soul mate" provides a moment of remembrance of that higher realm. Because like attracts like you won't find the ideal partner by neediness or longing. Thats the part popular music and movies got wrong. The often sung "I need you so" is a recipe for loneliness. The secret, is to Love Yourself. Not in the narcissistic sense but in the self-valuing sense. In loving yourself you become less dependent on others love. That makes you more attractive. Attractive in the true sense of the word, because once you love yourself you begin attracting love from all over the place. If you are truly content with yourself it is easy for you to love others.  And in loving others and being kind and considerate, your energy-field expands more still. So to all who are running around wanting love: Give love first. Be love. The mirror does not smile before you smile. This energy called Love is the #1 solution to everything, the all-in-one package deal. Any problem happening is happening because somewhere there is a lack of love (Care, Attention, Kindness). When you love you turn enemies into assets. You turn problems into resources. You turn crisises into jumping ramps. In the process, clean up your place, clothes and act as if you are expecting a new partner to enter your life. Also get out of your house so that you meet people. But these are side-effects of feeling love. If you feel love, you tidy up naturally. You cant radiate one type of energy at one part of the day and expect another type of energy to flow back to you at another part of the day. The Universe is Holographic, where the way you go about little things is the way you go about big things and vice-versa. Therefore, loving the shop-clerk or driver in front of you or the way you wash the dishes has everything to do with whether you will attract your soulmate or not. A Partner Manifesting Technique a) Write a letter describing yourself to him/her. 10 Minutes. b) Now write a letter “from him/her” describing himself/herself to you. 10 Minutes. c) Visualize your preferred reality as if it were already real. 10 Minutes. Change the Movie of Everyday Life You can change the movie-reel anytime. For that you first have to break out of the daily Hypnosis and realize that your "day to day reality" is only a movie. It is a very realistic and three-dimensional one, but from the viewpoint of Infinite-Consciousness its only a movie nonetheless. Two ways to stop the movie are: 1. Breaking Routines 2. Meditation Those two stop the movie abruptly. You can then see that what you thought of as a continuum that has nothing to do with you is actually under your conscious control. When is the last time you abruptly stopped and dropped everything and just stood there in Silence, observing? Yesterday I stood in the kitchen, motionless, for 10 Minutes, just observing. If someone had seen me they probably would have said: "Just what do you think you're doing????" because the idea of stopping the movie is not well understood. After stopping the movie and thereby demonstrating that your life is not running on automatic but that reality can be determined by you, you can re-decide, re-intend, re-structure, re-create. Some, after stopping the movie enter the very same movie they stopped. Why? Because it feels the most familiar and safe. But much progress is possible if you decide to enter a different movie, a different attitude, a different Intention. And even if your surroundings still look the same, once your inner Intention has changed, you have entered a new timeline which will end up somewhere totally different than had you not made that Decision. Even if a ship makes only a very small change in Direction, in the long term that Ship will end up thousands of miles far away from where it would have without that slight change. Physicalize your New Reality Reality Creation is the Art of matching your energy-field (your thoughts, emotions and actions) with the energy-field of the Reality you wish to Create. You thereby attract what focus on, into your life. So if you wanted to attract money, you'd assume the energy-field of already being rich. If you wanted to attract health you'd practice already seeing yourself as healthy. If you wanted to find your ideal partner, you'd practice feeling like you are already in a relationship. You can only attract experiences into your life that you radiate. You cannot experience anything you don’t believe or feel. When you have a certain “feeling”, that means energy is radiating out of your body, mind and being, attracting whatever matches that feeling. Every reality you wish to have, has a certain “feeling”. Find out what it feels like to already have what you want, and it's yours! Creating Reality takes some practice because its the opposite of what the world teaches...namely that experiences create what you believe and feel. In Reality Creation you learn that what you feel and believe creates what you experience. So learning this skill requires plenty of reading books on it, plenty of visualizing, plenty of mental releasing of negative programming and plenty of prioritization. You prioritize what is important to you and you disregard what is not. Energy flows where your attention goes. Reality Creation is not something for an instant and quick-fix but a lifestyle, a philosophy of a lifetime, something you can cultivate and get better at over years. The „quick fix“ crowd is usually the crowd driven by a needy Ego that will most likely not achieve, not create, not reach. Why? Because neediness attracts more neediness. Feeling non-needy and at peace attracts prosperity. I'd now like to go one step further than Visualization I'd like to introduce a new word: Physicalization! This is the same thing as Visualization except that you actually act out and demonstrate what you would normally only be imagining. This quickens the manifestation of your goals and dreams. Other words for Physicalization are. Acting-it-Out Acting-As-If Make-Believe-Acting Pretend-Acting Charades Pantomime Acting-with-Expectation (of something coming true) Preparing for something (in the trust it will come true) So in applying Reality Creation to get Healthy would you... a) Read a Book on how to get Rich b) Read a Book by someone who is Rich c) Read a Book on how to Invest your Money d) Read a Book unrelated to Money …? This is a Quiz. Answer it before reading on. Answer a) is the most incorrect of all answers. If you were play-acting being rich you wouldn't read a book about it. You already are. Answer b) is a little better than a) because you can learn more from someone who is rich than from someone just writing about being rich. Answer c) is even better because if you already are rich you might be reading books on what to do with all your money! And answer d) is the best because if you were really rich above and beyond your wildest Imagination you may not care about money itself anymore but delve into other subjects. If you want to Physicalize a Partner for yourself, you would perhaps lay the table, put on candlelight and prepare for your love to join you every evening. And one day he or she will be sitting there. Sometimes it takes only a few days, sometimes it takes many years. But it does eventually come true...always! If you want to Physicalize become a movie-actor, you'd have to hang around where movie actors hang-around. Where do they hang-around. You don't know? Then find out! It's not helpful to state a goal if you don't actually want to enter the energy-field that contains the fulfillment of that goal. Being in New York, London or Los Angeles may be a good idea if you want to be an actor in Movie Productions. If you want to Physicalize good health because you are having issues with, let's say, your back and you are saying „I did not sign up for Yoga because I have issues with my back“, then maybe you should sign up for Yoga – thereby demonstrating your belief in betterment. I am not recommending you take risks with your health though – never overwhelm your threshold of believability. But do move closer to the wish-fullfilled. If you want to Physicalize that you can afford to go on vacation although today it does not look as if you could go on vacation, then start preparing for it. Get out your vacation clothes and pack them. Look for flights in the Internet. Look at pictures from your Destination. Tell people you are going to travel (unless these are people that will say „But you don't have the money to travel“ - in that case, keep your goal a secret). Behaving in this way, the means to travel will come to you. It's metaphysical law. So if you were looking for something to rely on in life, you can always rely on attractor-fields bringing back the overall result of what you put out! Default Creation Default Creation is the automatic creation based on the past. That means if you dont take a new stand or define a new set-point you will be repeating the past over and over and over. And even your greatest success strategies of the past can then become a block to an even greater future. From where you are now, there is already a future defined and determined for you, based upon your current vibration. Can you sense what future you will have if you dont change your energy, attitude or frequency? Yes you can. Its predictable. While you sit there, try to sense your future. I guarantee it will be more of the same. And for some people that's good, for others not. But all in all there wont be anything major happening because most of your life is running on default. So find something you would like to improve. And first move to a blank slate on that subject...a space of nothingness. To do that, we will first examine and copy the something-ness already there. Describe the truth of your situation bluntly. The unvarnished truth. Do not resist or ignore it, describe it. The first step of reality creation is getting in touch with reality. If you ignore reality there will be no reality creation. So you describe your issue fully and honestly in all its aspects. Once you circumscribe your topic thusly, once you re-create it exactly as it is, you are actually able to release it. What you replicate disappears. You accept that the topic is over, you let go of it and you abide in an empty space, a blank slate, a state of open awareness with no desires or resistances. Into this nothingness you mention and describe nothing of the past, but something brand new. This something-brand-new is not based on "getting rid of" or "pushing against" or "overcoming" the old reality. Because following such a motivation would only once again re-inforce the old reality. This is where so many get stuck. Its a new reality of which you make a mission statement, verbal declaration or write a letter of intent. A statement of intent or declaration is more than only a goal or new years resolution. It is a statement of how things are, not of how you wish things were or how they will be in the future. It is important that what you state and express allows you to already live this "future" today. If it is not something you can live today, you will not create a new reality. The shorthand version of what was just said is: 1. Fully Experience the Old Reality 2. Let Go and Fully go into Nothingness. 3. Make Up, Declare and Demonstrate a New Reality. Your default future is the future already set up for you due to the energy/frequency you are currently radiating. This is the future that, if you are totally honest and real, you know is going to develop in the next weeks and months. In most cases that future is not much different than the past because we mostly chose our energy/state based on data the mind has collected. The mind only has access to what it has recorded in this life and to nothing else. The soul on the other hand, has access to something other than recorded data from the past. To access the souls data you must relax down to a state beneath the surface-layer of normal everyday thoughts. And you must allow yourself to think thoughts you have never thought before. What is a place you have never been to before? What is a person you have never experienced before? What is a time outside of your lifetime? What is a planet outside of your planet? Such questions and hundreds of similar immediately put your attention to a place outside of the mind that has only recorded events of this life, this place, this time. Your default future will happen because you keep thinking, remembering and feeling similar to yesterday and the day before yesterday and so on. If you do not very much change your vibration your nice life or not-so-nice-life will stay pretty much the same. And you can actually sense this. You can sense your default future. If you are waiting for the big breakthrough or the big surprise or the big gift from the Universe, guess what: Its not going to happen TO you, its going to happen THROUGH you. There is nothing to wait for. If you are vibrating on a high level of energy, then it is THROUGH this energy that you will attract interesting things. Another way to say this is: Whatever is happening right now, in your current surroundings,, your current state, your current reality...thats pretty much all there is. That pretty much perfectly reflects your true vibration. You are not vibrating less or more than that. If you swiftly change your emotional state, that will reflect in a time-span from 3 days to a few months. More precisely: You should receive the first indicators of change within a few days but full manifestation can take months. If there is a lot of resistance it can take years. The art is to be able to maintain your belief in your new reality even though things still look like in the old reality. If you do not maintain the new energy, you will slip back into the pre-set, default future. What will your life be like in the next few weeks? Go ahead, sense it. You can. Stress and the Law of Attraction The other day I witnessed an acquaintance who was going to a job interview. She had apparently really wanted the job interview but she was very stressed about it. Everything I had told her about calm and poise was gone in an instant. So stressed was she that her entire field of perception contracted and she perceived nothing but her own thoughts. So stressed was she that she drove through the same radar-trap three times (!) amassing a massive speeding bill within only 20 minutes. Why did she drive through the same thing three times? Because she didnt know where she was going and was not paying attention. And the worse it got, the worse it got. When getting out of the car her jacket somehow got strangely tangled up in the seat. She tried to rip it out and the jacket tore apart, ruining her overall appearance for the job interview. I had not seen the phenomena of what I call narrowed attention in awhile, but this was a fantastic demonstration of that. She was sweating, cursing, complaining. Did she get the job? Most likely not. You attract what you radiate. Its as simple as that.Simple yes, easy not always. Opening your attention, opening up the contraction, relaxing deeply (while staying awake)...thats what its all about. On Pre-Coaching Success A strange phenomenon I have been noticing is that people who sign up for various Courses, such as the Reality Creation Course get their results or some results before the Course even starts – retrospectively so to speak.  In the last Course I had a student who signed up with Relationship issues (dramatic break-up) that were all resolved (he found someone much better) before he even arrived. Something similar has happened with someone or other in every Course I've ever given. But why? Well, it has to do with the persons own level of expectation and with their commitment to change. By signing up for a Live Course, their level of expectation of what life is going to be changes. It is not only the Course that creates change but what a person expects to get out of it. By signing up to Coaching, the person makes a commitment to change. And often the commitment to change is enough to change. The sign-up is saying “Here, I am willing to invest time, attention and money to change this”. And then it does change. A similar phenomenon happens when someone signs up for one of my coachings and does not get his result in my coaching but a few days later elsewhere. For example one did a skype coaching session with me to release a knee-pain she was having since some time. She did not completely dissolve the knee-pain in the session itself, but what we did there paved the way for the manifestation of help. Only four days after the session she met a doctor. A week later this doctor treated her. A month later she was free from her knee problem and has stayed so ever since. Again it was the commitment to change that helped her. During the coaching session we set the strong intention to create relief for her knee and a month later that was manifest. Does it matter whether it was made manifest through a doctor? Not at all. She had seen other doctors before that and they had not helped her. This one could help her because her mind was properly aligned, The Universe delivers opportunity Non-Manifestation is just as much a teacher as Manifestation. I just got off the phone with someone who I had been working with for a month. His big goal was to get a professional soccer team involved in his mind-power products. Of Course thousands of people have similar intentions so "getting in" is quite the challenge. Various Visualisations were applied. And paths of opportunity did manifest...if only he had taken them! In a casual conversation with a stranger in a Cafe he revealed his intention to reach pro Sports teams. The person said "I can help you with that." He was some kind of sports agent affiliated with the local pro soccer team. Then and there they agreed that he would send the agent some of his material. But at the end of the conversation our reality-creator-in-practice forgot to ask for his email address or Business card. The Universe does deliver opportunity and unlikely "coincidence". But we do have to be on the ball enough to take those leads. Our reality-creator-in-practice did not resign himself with "opportunity missed", kept believing and just shortly thereafter he met a woman who also had personal relationships with executives of the Sports Club. This time he did get the Business Card. It remains to be seen whether his energy-field is strong enough to land a contract with that Pro Soccer Team. What he has experienced this month are the "Islands before the Land". Before something manifests fully, before Land is seen, pieces of land are seen. As a reality-creator do not mistake the islands for the mainland. That is, don't settle with less. Stop Watching TV, start creating Reality In some respects, watching TV is the opposite of creating reality. When you create a reality you pro-actively choose a mental image, focus on it, talk about it and then act on it. The investment of further thought, word and deed finally results manifestation. When watching TV you sit down and become passive. Your own creation of thoughts is replaced by the screen creating thoughts for you. You then have whatever thoughts the show is about. And because of the nature of entertainment, 75% of what is broadcast through the screen into your body, mind and subconscious, is negative. Anything can be a medicine or a poison, depending on the dose. A little bit of TV and Movie-Watching can be an inspiration, relaxation or motivation. But if you overdo it, it becomes a drug and then a poisonous drug. This is due to the hypnotic effects of rapid sight, sound and light. You can see this effect the best with children. They may have been engrossed in playing something but the moment the running TV catches their attention, they suddenly fall into a trance-like daze and immediately become inert. Television creates reality for you. And if you watch too much TV or Movies, it is because you have lost the power to create your own reality. It is because you have lost your energy and feel too exhausted to create. TV does not actually solve the problem of exhaustion. Most people actually believe that flopping on the couch after a “hard days work” is a form of “relaxation”. This may be true if done once in awhile, but it is certainly not true if done every day. What happens instead is that you train your body and mind to believe that the flickering screen is the source of relaxation or the source of certain joys. It then becomes habituated to the idea. But watching TV usually does not give you refreshment and energy. You`ll just become used to not exercising the power of your will. 10 Minutes of Meditation after work could have given you plenty of energy, more than any movie ever would. But then the next issue arises for so many people: “What should I do with all that energy?”. Not having anything worth living for, worth working towards, worth investing in, they then fall back on the pointless Internet-Surfing and TV-Watching. I don’t mean to moralize about TV. There is nothing wrong with it. It is the subtle addiction that is the culprit. As you probably know, with many people, one show turns into two, three, four, five…day by day. I know a lot of “retired” people who do nothing other than watch TV all day, vegetating in a chair until death. They have all the time in the world and can lazy around all day, but none of them are happy that way because they do not feel they are of any more value. I also know plenty of teens and twens who get extremely nervous when they do not have a screen in front of them for a few hours. Remove some peoples TV and Internet for a few days and they go crazy. Ask yourself: “Do I have TV, or does TV have me?”. Ask the same question about the Internet. And about anything else attention gets stuck to: Food, Drugs, Sex, Coffee, Tobacco, Alcohol and countless other things. “Do I have this, or does this have me?”. If you have it, you can turn it on and off any time. If it has you, you become so hypnotized that you have no control over it.  If you find you have no control over it, you can regain control with Awareness. But how to be aware of unawareness? Well, in the cause of Internet-Addiction or Internet-Hypnosis, you could for example set an hourly alarm-clock to wake you out of your hypnosis. Your alarm clock rings and you ask yourself: “Where is my attention right now? Is that where I would like my attention to be? If so, fine. If not: Where would I like my attention to be now?” That’s only one example to re-condition yourself. Find your way to break your hypnosis and wake back up to life. Regaining control of your life is a matter of taking back your attention where it has gone on automatic too much for too long. Remember: The word “muse” means to think, contemplate, meditate, ponder. The word “amuse” indicates the opposite of that. Your Authority over Reality Whether your spoken word manifests or not is a matter of authority. Repeating an affirmation without authority has little effect. Repeating an affirmation with a great sense of authority has a great effect. It is not the affirmation that works magic, it is the person voicing it. Your authority depends on a number of factors. Most importantly the belief that you even have the right and fully deserve to voice and have what it is you are saying. If you value who you are and your word is congruent with your innermost beliefs and it is also believed that the creation benefits others in general, your word will have more power. If you can generate a sense of positive emotion in connection with voicing your statement, your word gains even more momentum. If you of general good standing in life...financially well-off, in good relationships to others, in a healthy physical state and with a wide variety of skills learned, you will sense even more self-respect and by that your word will have even more power. If the word you voice is something you would truly prefer to have and you have arrived at that goal after authentic and honest examination, that adds more power to your word. When you voice your affirmation, what is the tone of your voice? Who is voicing that? Which version of you is voicing that...the needy version of you, or the whole-and-complete version? Your voice and word have tremendous power when used properly. Your voice and word can destroy and they can create. Using your word to create is much more fun. Be the Cause of what you Want BE CAUSE. Be the Cause of what you want. Be the source of what you want. This is a reversal of the world-mind that is always wanting and seeking without giving anything. Causing others to have what you want is the fastest way of becoming Source. And when you're Source of something, you will easily create or attract it, because what goes around comes around. By principle of the holographic Universe, return does not need to come from the same place you invested into. Wanting Love? Extend it to someone first. Wanting Success? Find a way to make someone else more successful. Wanting Health? Tend to and care for someones physical betterment and recovery. Wanting Money? Give money to someone who needs and wants it. Wanting someones attention? Let go of waiting for it, and give your fullest attention to someone first. Whatever it is you want, you can have it, if you become the source of it. Here you have one of the great mysteries of mysteries revealed in an article on a website. Will you make any use of it? Let the Universe be Your Insurance Placing too much trust and reliance on Insurance indicates too little trust and reliance on life, energy, the Universe. No amount of Insurance can guarantee health, abundance or safety. I am not against Insurance, go ahead and get your Insurance. But don't make it what it is not. It's not the  ultimate safety net against life. If you identify with the body as in "I am the body" you will never have safety. If on the other hand you identify with Awareness, which is Infinite and Eternal, you will have plenty of safety because you define yourself as that which cannot be corrupted, hurt, destroyed, broken. The world of form is limited in time and space. Find that which is unlimited and you will be safe. The best Insurance policy is the Universe. I did not have health-insurance for 15 years because I knew the Force would take care of my health and well-being. And it did. I only acquired health-insurance when the laws of the country I lived in required me to do so. Now I have health-insurance and it is OK that I do, but it is still not my main focal point of reliance. I have third party risk insurance but I hardly ever use it because there are many issues which can be handled person to person or even metaphysically. That is, if you are generally a person who radiates positive energy, you will get positive actions back. "For some strange reason" accidents never happen to me. The more fear you accumulate, the more insurance you need. The more love and joy you radiate, the less insurance you need. Reality Manifests when you follow through The term "follow through" means to bring something to an end, to complete, to finish, to go all the way. The term originates in sports such as baseball and golf where one has to swing the bat/club all the way through, even after the ball is already gone. Indeed, as if by some mysterious invisible force, the follow through after hitting the ball gives it more momentum. As already explained in the video Creating a Reality is a Decision, it is not good (for reality creating) to abort and contradict decisions half way, because it weakens the swing and does not allow for the energy of momentum to be built. Aborting decisions is exemplified in the following statements I have heard from a coachee of mine: "Well, I did some of the Bliss Course, but I wasnt really into it so I started the Matrix Energetics, which resonates more with me". One month later: "Oh yeah...well, I never did finish Matrix Energetics, but I am now getting to know EFT, which seems to be working better for me". I predict he is not going to follow through with EFT either. In fact, he has not been following through with anything...including his career project and an NGO he belonged to because not-following-through has become habitual to him. Manifesting results in life, as well as a solid sense of belonging, achievement and empowerment comes from staying loyal to a path you have decided to take. The person in question could get fantastic results from any of the methods mentioned above...my "Bliss Course", "Matrix Energetics" or EFT...if he followed through with any of them. Things get their power from you...from your dedicated and continued focus. You decide based on what you are drawn to, based on what you resonate with. Thats how you know which decisions are right-for-you. But then, once you follow a certain path, it is natural that various resistances and hurdles come up. Then saying "I no longer resonate with this" and aborting it at every tiny instance of discomfort is not beneficial. In most cases you ought to stick to it and complete it. You will grow stronger and your word-power, action-power and decision-power will grow stronger because your subconscious learns that once you make a decision, you follow through and it comes true. In fact, if you stick to a certain reality for a long time, it begins revealing aspects to it you have never dreamed  of before in your wildest imagination. For instance, I have stayed loyal to a certain circle of people for 15 years now. I considered severing my connection to that group of people 7 years ago because I got bored by them. Instead I persevered and am now witnessing magical developments regarding the group. In another example, I have stayed loyal to reality-creation-coaching for 25 years although it did not generate any feedback, much less income for me in the first 5 years. Any reality you focus on long enough, reveals its magic and reveals that it is an aspect of Infinity and itself contains all there is to know about all-there-is (if that makes sense:-). This is as if every puzzle piece of reality contains the potential experiences of the entirety of reality. Relationships grow stronger over time if you persevere through "difficult times"and overcome the Egos resistances. Your professional position becomes stronger over time as you persevere through "difficult times" and overcome the Egos resistances. If there is anything worse than aborting decisions made, then its neither-aborting nor following through. Being in that vague undecided-zone. So when speaking of reality as energy and energetic momentum, following through is the best choice, aborting second and doing neither of the two third. When you follow through on some project, you accumulate space, time, matter, information and ideas around the thing you are focusing on. You would not be attracting those new ideas and that expertise around something if your attention were scattered and jumping from item to item. So indeed it is better to know little and practice much than to know much but practice little. And it were better you are able to do one thing fully than many things half-heartedly To control reality, first take control of yourself If you would like to control, change, reverse, influence reality you must first control, change, reverse or influence yourself. This is the primary rule of reality creation. It is a mistake to try to first change the external world, the circumstances, other people, others emotions, reactions, feelings, to try to gain favor with others, etc. No. The first solution is found in taking charge within yourself. Pick up an object in front of you. Thats how easy it is to take conscious and deliberate control of something. Now drop it. Now alter it somehow. You are currently fully in charge of the situation regarding that object. This rule applies to any situation at all. I recently helped a guy who was having enormous difficulty approaching a woman he liked. So I said to him: "Take control of yourself". "What do you mean?" he asked. "Do something deliberate. Breathe deliberately. Move deliberately. Ask to sit next to her. Let go of outcome dependency. Just let go of wanting a certain outcome, breathe that thought out. Thats how you take charge of your thinking. Smile without smiling. Thats a technique to give your face an interesting look...inside you smile and radiate humor, but you dont show the smile with your mouth. Become aware of your strengths, become aware of what you are confident and good at. And in this awareness and state, go approach her. Take charge of where the conversation therefore your and her attention goes. It doesnt matter what you do, say or what she supposedly expects of you. All woman...and all humans for that matter...like someone who is in control of themselves, feels at ease with themselves". He took charge of the situation, went to approach her....and they are now a couple! Another coachee found himself in a weak and tired state everyday and ask me what he could do. Same answer from me: Take control of yourself. Act deliberately. Put on some really, really good music in the morning when you wake up. The purpose of music is to transport your attention, your consciousness to a better place. Better than what? Better than what your mind creates at default. Take charge of your body movements and eating behavior. Take charge of your habits throughout the day. Bring more awareness into your day. Pinpoint what exactly it is you are having a problem with. By pinpointing, you put things into perspective and make things that seem big, smaller. Then define what you want instead. Take charge of your thinking and acting. He did so and was better instantly. Name any external reality you wish to change. And then assume that there is something within YOU that needs to change in order to align with that external change. I have found that this is the real key, the real secret, the thing that really works for anything. It of course requires that you stop being preoccupied with all the things you cannot control. Thats what disempowers you in the first place...all this thinking of things you can't control. If you keep examining what you can control and influence, your confidence just keeps on growing. You can control your thoughts, words and deeds. Of course changing words and deeds is a little easier than changing thoughts. The reason thoughts flow without interruption is because energy flows without interruption. But ultimately, changing thoughts and beliefs comes down to a choice. It is merely a choice to think one thing and not another. And that choice really is yours to a large extent. A little secret you need to know to take control of yourself and your life is that in reality, you have no obligations whatsoever. None. Zero. You have no Obligations toward your country, your family, your company, your spouse, your children....NONE. Please think about this for a moment. All Obligations you think you have, are artificial constructs. Now I am not implying you should go ballistic and shock your relatives and loved ones by suddenly breaking what they expect of you. You may have love toward them, and your love compels you to be with them as if you had Obligations. And that is great. On the other hand, it is very liberating inwardly to realize you have no real "musts". You may have preferences, but these preferences are not "musts" and "shoulds". The enjoyment of life recedes when there are too many things felt as "Must and Should": So if you stay with your spouse or your kids or your company or whatever, it is not because you MUST or SHOULD, it is because you CHOOSE to. Feel the difference. Its a big difference. "MUST and SHOULD" come from resistance, CHOICE comes from love. To control reality, first take control of yourself. Do not try changing the mirror first. 99% of a reality is manifest before you see it You cant fully rely on what you see and what realities are already created, because new realities are already underway and they can be fully created and ready-to-manifest before you even catch a glimpse of them. Realities are created on the non-physical plane and manifest to the physical plane. The non-physical plane makes up 99% of reality, the physical only 1%. Physical reality is like the outermost tip of a pen. It is not the whole of reality, only a tiny aspect. That’s why people who are solely focused on physical reality, solely focused on the visible, are hopelessly ignorant and disempowered. Every time I coach a student, all I have to do is remind them of the non-physical (spiritual) dimension to life, to re-empower them. I urge all readers to pay attention to their “inner state” more than outer circumstances, because ones state is more real than external circumstances. Those circumstances are the outside tip of the pen, but what about the rest of the pen? Many try to manifest new realities but give up prematurely if their desire is not quickly visible. That’s too bad, since it can already be 99% manifest before they even see it. Ive seen many give up at 99% because they don’t see evidence of it. Belief/Faith means to believe in the unseen, to believe in the not-yet-seen and thereby invite it into physical reality. This process is called reality creation.  When a new reality manifests it first shows itself as a certain “vibe”, as certain feelings and emotions. It then manifests as information, “omens” and “coincidences”. Then, finally, it starts manifesting as physical, tangible reality. Another way of seeing this is: When a woman is pregnant, you cannot see the manifested child for 8 months. But just because you cant see it, does not mean its not there. With this in mind you realize that the source of everything is the non-physical. Do you think your job is the source of money? You're wrong. What we call "the field" or "the universe" or God is the source of ALL money. Thinking job is the source of money will keep you poor. If you have ever spent any time with rich people you know most of them see it this way. Do you think workout and dieting are the source of ideal weight? Dead wrong again. Those things can certainly help you achieve your goal, but they are not a primary source. There is only one primary source and that primary source is a non-physical, intangible force. Look at what you rely on for peace of mind, for relationship, for health, for money and for all else. Do you rely on that ultimate source of all things or do you rely mostly on secondary sources? Do you rely mostly on what your eyes can see...on the "already manifested", or do you rely on the unlimited source of abundance infinite and eternal? You are living a movie If Imagination really creates reality then wouldn't novelists manifest what they write about? Yes they would. And yes they do. But many are not consciously aware of it. And wouldn't filmmakers and actors manifest what they act out? Yes they would. And yes they do. But many are not consciously aware of it. When an author writes a novel of fiction, he is focusing attention-energy on an imagined reality. What you focus on deeply, you begin attracting into your life. The only thing that is keeping horror-novel author Stephen King from manifesting all the horrible things he writes about is his belief that "it's not real". But even so, his writing will have some effect on his everyday life. An interviewer once asked him "Do you believe in what you write?" and he answered "I believe in it while I write about it". So he has learned to compartmentalize what he visualizes into "only real while I am writing, otherwise not real". This is how he protects himself from those things manifesting in his life. Living a Novel Consider this story a reader sent to reality creation teacher Neville (from the book "The Law and the Promise", 1961):

One Spring, I completed a novelette, sold it and forgot it. Not until many long months later did I sit down and nervously compare some ‘facts’ in my fiction with some ‘facts’ in my life! Please read a brief outline of my created story. Then compare it with my personal experience.

“The heroine of my story took a vacation trip to Vermont. To the small city of Stowe, Vermont, to be exact. When she reached her destination she was faced with such unpleasant behavior on the part of her companion that she either had to continue her lifetime pattern of allowing another’s selfish demand dominate her or to break that pattern and leave. She broke it and returned to New York. When she returned (and the story continues) events took shape in a proposal of marriage which she happily accepted.

“For my part of this tale… as small events evolved… I began to remember the dictates of my own pen and in significant relationship. This is what happened to me! I received an invitation from a friend offering me a vacation at her summer place in Vermont. I accepted and was not startled, at first, when I learned her ‘summer place’ was in the city of Stowe. When I arrived, I found my hostess in such a highly nervous state I realized I was faced with either a wretched summer or the choice of ‘walking out’ on her. Never before in my life had I been strong enough to ignore what I thought were the claims of duty and friendship — but this time I did and without ceremony returned to New York. A few days after I returned to my home, I, too, received a proposal of marriage. But at this point fact and fiction parted. I refused the offer! I know, Neville, there is no such thing as fiction.”

Novels Manifest

Would it surprise you if I said that almost any event that has ever happened in History was first dreamed up in a book?

 Skype-Chat was visualized in the 1909 Novel "The Machine Stops" by M.E. Foster: "But it was fully fifteen seconds before the round plate that she held in her hands began to glow. A faint blue light shot across it, darkening to purple, and presently she could see the image of her son, who lived on the other side of the earth, and he could see her." Atomic Bombs (fell 1945) were visualized in the 1913 H.G. Wells Novel "The World Set Free": "Certainly it seems now that nothing could have been more obvious to the people of the earlier twentieth century than the rapidity with which war was becoming impossible. And as certainly they did not see it. They did not see it until the atomic bombs burst in their fumbling hands..." The 1898 novel "Futility, or the Wrecking of the Titan" visualized the sinking of the Titanic (1912) Credit cards were visualized in the 1887 book "Looking Backwards" by Edward Bellamy. Digital Media was visualized in Arthur C. Clarkes 1968 Book "2001: A Space Odyssey": One by one he would conjure up the world's major electronic papers... Switching to the display unit's short-term memory, he would hold the front page while he quickly searched the headlines and noted the items that interested him." I could go on and on. If a visualized reality doesn't manifest for the novelist, it manifests elsewhere. Anything that is put into the field through imagination, must manifest somewhere. I could make the controversial claim that filmmakers of horror and terror subconsciously want those things to manifest. And we who watch the movies are actually fascinated about such manifesting. We pay money at the movie theater or on netflix to see tragedy, violence, pain and suffering. We secretly can't get enough of it. And I am not pointing my fingers at others here, I have been fascinated by post-apocalyptic science-fiction since childhood. And that stems from the subconscious desire to be a hero who rises out of the ashes and persevere through challenges. In this world it can sometimes be a useful attitude to have. But having made this subconscious belief conscious within myself, I now make sure not to buy into such a scenario too intensely. Many people who dwell on doom, gloom and disaster secretly desire to manifest exactly that. If what I am saying is true, then a little bit of research should unveil how things that happen in the private lives of various novel writers and actors that are similar to what they wrote or acted out. The most extreme recent example that comes to mind is the actor Heath Ledger who committed suicide while playing the part of the "Joker" in the movie "The Dark Knight". When I first saw the movie I didn't know that Ledger had committed suicide. But I said: "Wow...his acting is so good that he must have really gone insane while shooting the movie". Later I learned of his suicide and was not surprised. He said to the press that his work for "The Dark Knight" had "taken a toll on my ability to sleep". He had impersonated something totally insane and evil. To do so he had to adopt the vibration of that, the belief in that. That state, fully occupied, makes it rather easy to ponder suicide. How could he have protected himself? By affirming the belief "It's not real, it's only a movie". The disadvantage: His acting wouldn't have been quite as convincing. Still convincing enough to make for good entertainment, but the movie would probably never have become one of the highest grossing movies of all time. He literally sacrificed his sanity and his life just to make a good movie. But there is another way he could have protected himself from the role: Through awareness. After movie-shooting was over he could have established a mental "Separator" between role and real life, rather than taking the bad energy into his private life. Someone playing a positive role, on the other hand, would not want such a separator. For example Leonardo Di Caprio, who usually plays roles of a guy surrounded by beautiful women is in real life continually in relationships with beautiful models. The effects of movies on Consciousness The purpose of watching a movie or tv-show is to change your state. Or what did you think the purpose was? Movies have the purpose to draw your attention in so that you temporarily lose yourself in another reality. This temporary shift of consciousness is enjoyable because you forget your regularly scheduled reality for a few hours. The danger here is of course that if you are not doing well in your normal reality you tend to become addicted and then spend too much time in those realities, indiscriminately watching one movie after another. This is not recommended for conscious reality creators. I´d never watch more than one or two movies a month because my real life is too full of beauty and I don't want my vibe distracted or interrupted from that. Of course, if your life is unbearably dull, then watching many movies can be shifting and uplifting. So the usefulness of movies depends on where you happen to be on the energy-levels scale. The effect of watching movies is not nearly as strong as writing stories or acting in them yourself. But it's there. Reality creators are typically reality sifters who are choosy about what they allow their ears to hear and eyes to see. I understand the appeal of "bad movies" and understand how movies that are all-positive and harmonious can be boring. But nonetheless it makes sense to limit your intake of dark and depressing movies, especially if you resonate with lower emotions. Not to get rid of them altogether - because you want to be familiar with the different energies out there - but not to make a hobby of them, so to speak. Whose story are you living? Everything you imagine, write and speak effects your day-to-day reality. Think, write and speak differently and you will experience something different. for people who do not like to mentally visualize, I recommend scripting. Scripting is to write down scripts or movie-scenes or entire novels of things you wouldnt mind experiencing. And the more you get into it and enjoy it, the more energy your thoughts carry and the more magically the influence what comes into your life. The Little Workbook of Manifesting "The little workbook of Manifesting" is a new 16-page ebook (PDF) that presents an 8-week program of weekly intention lists. Every week introduces another method of Intention-Manifestation so that by the end of the workbook you know exactly which method works best for you. For all who enjoyed the Law of Attraction and Intention Experiments on this website, "The little workbook of Manifesting" is a gem. It succinctly summarizes the 8 best reality-manifesting tools I know (and I know hundreds) for immediate practice. Such is the power of focusing attention and intention that your life will rapidly shift to the even better once you apply these tools. It is available for free download in the members download section.   Reality Reframing The Wisdom of Neville Goddard 200px-Neville_Goddard Neville was a Reality Creation Teacher who lived from 1905 - 1972. He was one of the first teachers I read as a teenager. His teachings easily match what I have discovered as true in decades of research and experimentation. I will now introduce him to those of you who do not yet know him with a few quotes. “Man moves in a world that is nothing more or less than his consciousness objectified". “Assume the feeling of your wish fulfilled and observe the route that your attention follows.”  “Chance or accident is not responsible for the things that happen to you, nor is predestined fate the author of your fortune or misfortune. Your subconscious impressions determine the conditions of your world. The subconscious is not selective; it is impersonal and no respecter of persons. The subconscious is not concerned with the truth or falsity of your feeling. It always accepts as true that which you feel to be true. Feeling is the assent of the subconscious to the truth of that which is declared to be true. Because of this quality of the subconscious there is nothing impossible to man. Whatever the mind of man can conceive and feel as true, the subconscious can and must objectify. Your feelings create the pattern from which your world is fashioned, and a change of feeling is a change of pattern.” “Your consciousness is the only living reality, the eternal head of creation. That which you are conscious of being is the temporal body that you wear. To turn your attention from that which you are aware of being is to decapitate that body; but, just as a chicken or snake continues to jump and throb for a while after its head has been removed, likewise qualities and conditions appear to live for a while after your attention has been taken from them.”  Sleep conceals the creative act while the objective world reveals it. In sleep man impresses the subconscious with his conception of himself.”  “I will be” is a confession that “I am not “ The Father's will is always “I AM.” Until you realize that YOU are the Father (there is only one I AM and your infinite self is that I AM), your will is always “I will be.”  “Consciousness is the one and only reality, not figuratively but actually. This reality may for the sake of clarity be likened unto a stream which is divided into two parts, the conscious and the subconscious. In order to intelligently operate the law of consciousness it is necessary to understand the relationship between the conscious and the subconscious. The conscious is personal and selective; the subconscious is impersonal and non-selective. The conscious is the realm of effect; the subconscious is the realm of cause. These two aspects are the male and female divisions of consciousness. The conscious is male; the subconscious is female. The conscious generates ideas and impresses these ideas on the subconscious; the subconscious receives ideas and gives form and expression to them. By this law-first conceiving an idea and then impressing the idea conceived on the subconscious-all things evolve out of consciousness;”  For life makes no mistakes and always gives man that which man first gives himself.” “To be conscious of being poor while praying for riches is to be rewarded with that which you are conscious of being, namely, poverty. Prayers to be successful must be claimed and appropriated. Assume the positive consciousness of the thing desired.”  “Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.” You do not fight against your problem; your problem will only live as long as you are conscious of it. Take your attention away from your problem and the multitude of reasons why you cannot achieve your ideal. Concentrate your attention entirely upon the thing desired.”  “Thomas, the doubter — when disciplined — would deny that sickness or anything else which was not in sympathy with the consciousness to which he belonged had any power to affect him.”  “As John I can do nothing; but since all things are possible to God and God I know to be my consciousness of being, I can realize my desire in a little while. How my desire will be realized I do not (as John) know, but by the very law of my being I do know that it shall be.”  For all Reality Creation practitioners Neville is a breathe of fresh air.

Beginners Luck beginners luck manifestation The term "Beginners Luck" exists in various languages to describe the odd phenomenon that novices have a disproportionate amount of success compared to experts in activities such as sports, stock market, gambling or manifesting desired outcomes. It has also been called "the first time effect". I myself have experienced "beginners luck" many times. About a decade ago I  bent a spoon with my mind. That's how I know this telekinetic paranormal magic is actually real. The very first time I attempted to bend a spoon with my mind, it worked. And after that it never worked again! That had indeed been "beginners luck". I recall that the very first Seminar I held, at the age of 21, was one of the best I have ever held. Having no idea what I was doing, I was free to be spontaneous. I recall winning my very first game of chess against an expert player and not winning subsequent games. I propose that "beginners luck" is not actually "luck" in the sense of random happenstance. It has more to do with the old  zen saying "beginners mind, open mind". A naive, unsullied, open, clear, unprejudiced, child-like mind is unburdened, has no pressures or expectations, no needs, wants, preferences or desires, no resistances, fears and worries. It is therefore receptive. Once you begin to "know" things about something, you begin collecting beliefs about it and those things you supposedly "know" about it limit the options you see and the choices you take. In an open minded state you may see an unlimited amount of possibilities, whereas a closed mind may only see a few. I have been teaching "manifesting techniques" for some time now. And I have noticed that often naive and child-like people have an easier time manifesting things out of thin air. Unburdened by intellectual reasoning, intelligent questioning and doubting, heavy memories of the past, they say "I would like to manifest X" and then "X" really manifests. This could be a house, a car, a job, a partner, an object, anything. Sometimes I have noticed that if they naively believe I can manifest something for them (and this belief is naive), then it will happen. If they naively believe that some higher power is manifesting stuff for them, it will happen. It will at least happen the first or the first few times it is tried out. But once the inner skeptic, the questioning and burdened mind start switching on and saying things like "How could this happen?" and "Thats Unbeleivable", the ability may go lost. Until one day when you dare to dream again, dare to try something fresh, new or "crazy". The sense of awe, wonder and mystery you had as a child can be somewhat regained so that you have a little more of a "beginners mind, open mind".  Raising Your Frequency Sit back, close your eyes and enjoy this guided Meditation spoken by Frederick Dodson with music by Iasos.

The difference between fantasizing and visualizing Fantasizing is based on desire (lack) and Visualizing is based on Belief (expecting). You will have noticed that the things you have had excessive fantasies about never came true, whereas the things you fully expected to happen did happen. Often times such inner and almost subconscious expectations are there because of past reference: You've always easily gotten a job, so you easily get a job next time. You're used to finding a good partner, so you again find a partner. You remember method X working, so method X works again.  If you have been asking yourself why the Millions of people who practice Visualization as learned in movies such as "The Secret" and countless new-age books are not experiencing what they visualized, this is the answer. They are not Visualizing in this sense of the word, they are fantasizing. They are imagining things they do not believe in, do not expect to happen and have no reference for. Fantasizing in such a way is actually detrimental to achieving your goals because it creates continued desire. Continued desire creates continued lack. But if you do not have a coach to remind you of these distinctions, you could be going on for years creating lack without knowing it. You can boost your belief in what you are visualizing by having some reference for it: Do you know anyone else who has achieved what you intend to? Have you achieved similar in the past? Could you convert your visualization into action to boost its reality? Could you inject some real emotion into your visualization? Could you focus on it for such a long time that it solidifies? Could you boost your Visualization by acting-it-out or acting-as-if? Could you pretend its a memory instead of a fantasy? Could you buffer your Visualisation by naming examples of why you think you deserve it and why you think it can come true? What you fully expect to happen, usually does happen. And you expect it to happen, usually because it has already happened. Creating a new reality is the art of fully expecting something you dont have past reference for. Either that or you simply remember past successes and from them conclude similar and more of it for your future. How to solve a problem with Creative Visualization If there is a reccurring issue in your life thats because you keep focussing on it, keep thinking it. Reccurring thoughts attract reccurring realities. So what you do is sit down and close your eyes. Get relaxed with a few deep breathes. Dropping down to Relaxation takes at least 20 seconds or maybe 120. It is difficult to visualize anything at all if you are not relaxed. The "nothingness" - state is the best place to re-programm a new "somethingness". Once you're relaxed, visualize the problem. Thats another way of saying think about your problem. Since we live in a Screenworld of TVs, Movie Theatres and Computers, it can be helpful to project a Screen in front of your Forehead (but outside of your head). When seeing a problem you would not enter the Screen or Movie. When seeing a Solution, you would enter the Screen and participate in the movie. So see the problem first. This step alone is very significant. What you are doing here is taking something that went on automatically, without your control, and you are creating it deliberately. When you create that problem-thought deliberately, you are regaining some control over it. Something else is happening here too: You are viewing the problem in a relaxed state. That means you are teaching your body to remain calm in the face of difficulties. Exercises like these solve a multitude of life issues, not only that of Imagination. As you view the problem on your screen you may feel Emotions come up in your body (often stomach, solar-plexus, chest or forehead). If you resist these Emotions they stay. If you allow them and let them come up, they dissappear in time. You can either observe the problem and bring up the Emotions until the issue is emptied of those fears and frustrations, or you can proceed with the exercise. That is, you can have the Emotions subside over time or in one sitting. Which is appropriate is for you to intuitively determine. Some people also use a frame of bright color or light for their Screen. For example, when viewing the problem they might have a bright blue light as a frame which they see erasing the problem. And for the solution they switch the color of the frame to white or gold. If you decide to do this, then you should do it consistently. It is by the repetition of the same method over and over that the method starts working. So if you are going to use color-frames to depict problem and solution, then you should do this in all of your visualizations over the months. In this way you teach the body/mind how it works...and in time, it actually does begin to work for you. You have then created your own method of solving issues. Next, either erase or release or let go of the negative image and allow the opposite of that to appear in the screen. This is another very significant step. For the first time you are deliberately shifting attention from the unwanted thought to the wanted thought. You are deliberately shifting reality. You will start attracting a different reality. Slowly at first, more obviously over time. So now you are projecting the solution onto your inner movie screen. If you have any difficulty with this step, you can make it easier next time by writing down the problem and its opposite before starting the exercise. You can only visualize and focus if you know what to visualize and focus on. If you dont know the solution or cant imagine the opposite, it will not happen for you. In this case you will either have to wait until you know the opposite of the problem or know what you want, or surrender the whole issue to the Universe, to God (see previous post). While viewing the new image on the Screen in front of your Forehead, you may also enter the Movie if you want. This intensifies the Vibration. So you are no longer just seeing a 2-dimensional screen in front of your head, but you are now physically or three-dimensionally experiencing that reality. Smelling, Hearing, Touching, Sensing, Seeing, Tasting. Finally, let go of the image. It is enough to spend between 30 seconds and 3 minutes on the problem and between 30 seconds and 3 minutes on the solution. I recommend you repeat this 3 times a day...for how long? Until the issue is completely solved and the new reality in place. Reality Creation works :-) Be mindful of what you feel while you fall asleep Your subconscious is like a loyal servant who fulfills your every wish. Except that it does not fulfill your wishes, it fulfills what you feel. It takes what you feel and alters your perception and actions according to it. To make your wish come true it must be believed by your subconscious. To be believed by your subconscious you have to feel as if your wish is not a wish but already true, already fulfilled. How would you feel if your desired reality is already true? The subconscious is not that receptive to force or pushing, but to gentle persuasion in a state of relaxation. It is the most receptive to what you feel while you fall asleep. So if you have a time of the day where you visualize or think of your highest intentions, it should be while relaxing or drifting to sleep. As best you can, try not to go to bed upset, discouraged or fearful. Go to bed satisfied, at peace and with the feeling of already having achieved the things you want. Once asleep, the conscious mind disappears, you lose freedom of choice and your subconscious runs the show. It processes the events of the day, reorganizing your body-mind-energy-field according to the new events of the last day. And it most dominantly runs the last feelings you had while awake. If you visualize the good, successful and beautiful night after night after night, your subconscious starts adapting to your new thoughts. Then, in waking life, when the conscious mind is back on line, it has a new view of opportunity and the things you are magnetized to, changes. But more important than your specific thoughts while sleeping, are the feelings. If you are thinking good thoughts but don't feel so much, you might consider altering your thoughts until you feel even better. You never attract in life according to what you want, you attract what you embody - who you are at the deepest levels, what your subconscious believes to be true about you. What you continually take into sleep goes deep and high and must, in time, manifest in your life.  An afternoon nap can also do the job. You lie down, close your eyes and allow soft breathing to relax you. You target pleasant thoughts and feelings and get lost in those daydreams until you lose conscious awareness. You see, if you can visualize these things without a hint of effort, strain or attachment and be so relaxed that you fall asleep (which is the ultimate "letting go"), the subconscious takes this to mean that you "own" these things. Because you "own" them, no extra effort is required and there is no care whatsoever about potential failure. "Belief" or "Faith" is a feeling in the body and giving in to that feeling, relaxing into it and allowing it to grow. Even if you have had a bad day and felt lousy throughout, you can cancel the entire negativity of that day through consciously relaxing and cultivating good thoughts and feelings at bedtime. If you don't do that, then sleep will at least help you reset yourself to feel more fresh in the morning and have a new start. But you could consciously intensify that by the way you go to sleep. Can I have an athletic body by visualization alone? I am often asked "Can I have an athletic body by visualization or reality creation alone?" The answer to every "can I?" question is, in my opinion "YES!". However, its easier to do so if you are already somewhat athletic. You can only create a reality that you can feel and experience. And if you are overweight and unhealthy, then visualizing or reality-creating that you are athletic can be challenging. I recommend you become somewhat athletic by a) reducing sugar intake b) reducing carb intake (especially after 6 oclock) and c) physical workout (at least twice a week for an hour). You will notice that its much easier to visualize an athletic body while you are doing workout. Any visualization that is combined with physical action doubles in power. Then, once you already look athletic it will be easier to maintain. Then you no longer need to watch your carbs, sugar and workout as much as before because you can feel the reality of being athletic. And whatever you can really feel and believe, is easily maintained. Take your mind on a trip "Take your attention to a place it has never been before" is one of my favorite meditation or coaching-commands to help shift someones state. So where have you never been before with your attention? Lets try a few: * Hear a foghorn. Can you hear it? Where does that take you? What do you see in your surroundings? What is the time of day? What is the temperature? What is the terrain? There is splashing water nearby I assume. And perhaps you can hear the wood cracking on the boats. Close your eyes and reside there for a little while. * The picture above. Go to that place. Allow it to come alive in your mind. What are the smells? What sounds to you hear? Can you hear the footsteps and murmurings? Do you hear a chruch bell ringing nearby? Now be at this place but 200 years earlier. What changes in the overall "aura" of the place? What does that 200 year older version sound, look and feel like? How does it change your internal state to reside there for a while? Close your eyes and feel. * Now travel to a place near where you live. And take that place 200 years into the future. Take note of every detail. Every color. Every shape. Every sound.. Every impression. Turn up the volume a little. Turn up the brightness. Turn up the three-dimensionality of the place. Being removed in time, it is a foreign place and yet still somewhat familiar. The intersection of foreign and familiar is fascinating. You can take your mind on a trip now and then. This is how you shift your state-of-energy from the habitual and mundane to something fresh and exciting. This opens up new pathways in the mind; it attracts new types of thinking and seeing. You can find a more intense version of this technique in the audio "Intensifying Imagination" which is Part 5 of the Reality Creation Course. Seeing with the Eyes of the Soul What is standing in the way of seeing life through the eyes of your soul are the Millions of "opinions" you have accumulated and formed about reality. All these "opinions" act as filters. Your soul is subtle and it emerges below the threshold of all that opinion-noise of the surface-mind. A nice little consciousness-trick you can use to deepen your insight and reading of any situation is to view it without any opinion. If for example you are ill and you have formed dozens of opinions, information and other mind-stuff about your illness, you reduce all that opinion-noise by looking at the illness afresh, anew and without opinion, to that almost naive and untouched state you had before you had all these thoughts arose. One of the purposes of Meditation is to be able to look at things without all the filters, from silence. You may then be able to perceive solutions to that illness that had been clouded by all of your "knowledge". If its your intention to get your relationship or marriage back on track, try viewing your partner with fresh eyes and without all the opinions you have collected over the years. As you view your partner from the eyes of the soul, the relationship always stays fresh and exciting. Loss of excitement is only because all these accumulated repetitive thoughts are so boring. Opinions don't make a difference. For example, you either agreeing or disagreeing with my teachings won't make any difference in your life. What makes a difference is if you take my teachings for checking, playful experimentation and application. I don't really care whether you "agree" or "disagree" with me. I care that you experience more ethereal joy in your life. Everything I know and experience is a consequence of my curious experimentation, not of my "opinions". If you want to expand, then find things out for yourself, without the need for peoples opinions. Opinions are overrated. Often they are a limitation. An opinion is usually formed as a reaction to some event and then acts as a filter to other similar events. Opinions are thoughts at the very surface of your Being and a disregard of the vast and deep ocean below that surface. That vast and deep ocean is your Consciousness and it is full of energy. Do you want to study the river and voice your opinions about it, or do you want to jump into it and experience its flowing energy? Do you want to read up on strawberries and form opinions about them or do you want to taste them and experience their deliciousness? Giving opinions too much importance makes you easy to influence. Simply agreeing with what I or someone else says means to simply accept and copy without thinking for yourself. That's not smart because it would mean I can indoctrinate you with any belief-system I wish. My teachings are not given with the intent to spoon-feed you beliefs for easy consumption. They are given with the intent that you play with them, and develop your own extrapolations. One example: If I teach "see things the way love would see them", (as taught in The Enlightenment Technique) instead of just copying that, you could extrapolate from that another technique, such as "do things the way love would do them". That would then be your insight, your idea, your extrapolation. And the moment you have an insight, you grow. You are meant to develop what was taught to you in your own creative manner. Only copying what was seen or read, indicates lack of creative energy, lack of consciousness. But self-empowerment entails being resourceful from within. Too many opinions cause heavily edited perception and defensiveness. A dull mind will agree with whatever matches their  beliefs and disagree with whatever doesn't match their beliefs, without examination. It's impossible to learn or experience anything new that way. "Oh, I heard what he is teaching somewhere else before, so it must be right" and "Oh, what he is teaching does not match what I heard somewhere else, so it must be wrong". Such "opinions" are no path to deep and full understanding. Real knowledge is something you see, feel and experience for yourself. If you hold too many fixed opinions and beliefs you will experience cognitive dissonance every time someone says something that does not match your prior beliefs. Hence many will feel "defensive" and "offended" by mere words and opinions. If you feel "offended" by someones opinions, you are giving mere words way too much credence. Personally, I am not offended by anything someone says to me, because I know "I am not my opinions" and  "I am not a body", hence I cannot be hurt or attacked by words. It is only when desperately clinging to one way of seeing things that you can be hurt. A useful hint: Whatever is absolutely true cannot be hurt. Does that mean I freely insult and offend others? Of course not. If they do not know that they are not their mind/body, I have no right to try to offend them, I must respect their beliefs and social conventions. However, I am not worried or concerned about "offending" people unintentionally. If I sit together with a person of any type of worldview, the chances that something I say will "offend" them are quite high. Even supposedly "open minded" people can be quite "sensitive" when their own open-minded views are questioned (so if they were really "open minded" they would allow for the inclusion of criticism of their open-mindedness). You can easily move beyond opinion in times that it would be more appropriate. When viewing something you would like to know more about, you could rely more on your "gut feeling" than on your mind-data. Over-reliance on information will lead you astray in the long run. You could say: "I am going to pretend for a moment, that I don't know anything about this at all, that I have no knowledge at all, and look at this topic with fresh eyes". You could intend "Please allow me to see this the way the Universe would see this", "I would like to see this the way Love would see this", "I want to see this from the eyes of the highest Source". A mind clear as a cloudless sky can see the Universe. Visualizing without Expectation This story was sent in by Geoff Parsons, geoff (at) tparsons.co.uk. It is a nice little story that demonstrates the art of "visualizing without expectation". Thanks to Geoff for serving as an inspiration to us all. "This isn't a big one, although, everything, no matter how small is infinitely amazing. :) I was commenting on Facebook on a friend's post and noticed a girl commenting, so I looked at her page and felt she was someone I might know, perhaps a soul friend, plus her birthday is near mine. I relaxed, imagined that I was looking at a friend request from her, pictured the little "confirm ignore" box and felt myself smiling. I then let go and got on with the rest of my evening. The next morning, less than 18 hours later I popped on Facebook and I saw the "confirm ignore" box from her. :-) I didn't speak to her, or engage her in ANY way, not even in the comments section of the mutual friend. I had basically *zero* contact with her. I think it's really awesome, because it shows just how quickly we can manifest that which we imagine if we can REALLY let go and remove all expectation. The only thing stopping us from manifesting "big" things is our intense expectation and resistances".   Raising your Vibration with the power of memory memories of the distant futureMemory is a powerful tool if you use it deliberately. Most of us get used by it, by getting lost in boring old stories and petty re-runs of all sorts of grievances. But using memory as your personal tool for accessing different types of frequencies, vibrations, moods, emotions (yes, these words are used as synonyms here) you can learn how to elevate your state within seconds. When you remember something you access its frequency. It takes only a few seconds to refresh and recall something and about 60 seconds to warm it up to the point that it starts effecting your auric energy-field. By remembering something you reactivate the inner state and emotion you had back then. Thus you begin to attract similar into your life once again. This works better if you are able to go into detail. So when you describe a past event to someone or remember it mentally, the more detail you can conjure up the better. You probably know pouty and sad types who love to go into all the delicious detail of their victim-story. In this way they re-create the emotion in the present moment and guarantee that similar events will happen to them again in the future. And you can do the same for good memories. So remember one of the best locations you have ever been to. And remember specific details about it. Remember one of your best romances and specific details about it. Keep with it for more than a minute. But don't remember that romance as if you are dissociated or separate from it. Remember it as if it is happening right now. Remember one of your greatest career successes and specific details about it such as who else was there, what furniture was there, what the temperature was, what you might have had on and so forth. And remember one of your most inspiring visions in detail. Once you've gone through these memories, you will feel enriched. In the days to come your perception and actions will have undergone a slight shift to the better. So any time you seek to reclaim your inner power, focus on one of your key great memories. Those are memories you can draw upon for many thousands of years to come. A more detailed and guided version of this process can be found in the Reality Creation Supercourse. Wipe the dust off your dreams Are there problems you are no longer trying to solve because you have resigned yourself to believing they can't be solved? Are there dreams you have given up on some time ago because you have resigned yourself to believing they can't be reached? If you are a human being, your answers to both questions is probably "Yes". And if you have given up on too many things, you live in a state of Resignation, not fully alive, not fully inspired. This article asks you to reconsider things you have already given up on, to open those dusty boxes of forgotten wishes back up. Some people mistake giving up with "letting go". The two are different. "Letting Go" is a form of release-from-attachment. It means you are not attached to a particular outcome, not pushy about it. You're still interested in the outcome, but without worry. Giving up, on the other hand, is a fake loss of interest in a preferred outcome. It happens when you have tried something over and over again and it just didn't work or didn't last. You then hide the desire in the subconscious and act as if it didn't interest you. But when it happens to another person, you feel excitement or emotional pain. That's how you know you are still secretly interested in it. You might say "Nevermind, those were naive dreams of my youth" or "I've found peace, I don't need that anymore" or "Some things just can't be done" or "Many things are predestined" or similar, but still feel something when the idea arises.  Nobody  has desires without the inherent ability to fulfill them. That's a fact I have learned throughout my work. If you didn't have the ability on some level, you wouldn't have the desire. Exercise 1. As the title on a piece of paper, write down a problem you are no longer trying to solve or a goal you are no longer trying to reach because you have given up. Take an honest look and find something you still really want but have pretended that you don't anymore. 2. Write down the "facts" (beliefs) you have "accepted" about why it can't be done. 3. Ask several probing questions about these "facts": Are they really absolutely true? Isn't there anyone who has achieved or solved that? Why do I think that I can't? Can I prove these limiting beliefs rationally? What are assumptions underlying these beliefs? Would I tell someone else in a similar situation that they too should give up on it? If not, why not? Add your own probing questions if you like. The point here is to deconstruct your "facts" and expose them as beliefs (thought-forms), not as universally true facts. Write your answers down. 4. Write down what you would like to believe instead of these old thoughts. Practice thinking or visualizing them every day until they become "second nature". Initially new thoughts are unfamiliar, but the more often you think them, the more subconscious they become. Once they are deeply and effortlessly believed, they begin manifesting in your life. 5. Consciously behave as if your new thoughts were true until your new behavior becomes subconscious or effortless. If you fall back into old patterns, gently shift back to the new you - if necessary, repeatedly. Making New Beliefs Stick Imagination + Strong Belief + Emotion + Relaxation + Repetition + correspondent Action programs whatever you imagine into your subconscious.  Your subconscious then takes over and influences your perception and actions until the end-result is reached. A strong belief is something you see as a fact and no longer question. It`s an absolute. A certainty. If you are not sure what that feels like, think of something you are 100% certain about. Are you 100% certain the sun will rise tomorrow? "Well of course, but that's a fact" you say. But I say, you have to think similarly of the dream which you want to manifest. "Yes, of course. It's a fact". There is no effort or tension in believing that "the sun will rise tomorrow".If you can find a way to have the same certainty about your new preferred reality, you will attract it into your life. It may take a while...but you wouldn't wait for something you know is "already true". You wouldn't wait for the sun to rise because you know it will rise regardless and in its own time. You can do this with anything you want in life: Take a thought. Think it consciously over and over, until it becomes subconscious. If it is a new thought, it always begins with doubt. That's normal. Doubt is simply telling you that whatever you wish to manifest, is not ingrained in your subconscious yet. There is another, already existing program there. And with some practice, the new program replaces the old one. Thoughts Accumulate to Beliefs
"The thought that you think, you think, which attracts to it; so you think it some more, which attracts to it; so you think it some more. In other words, when you have an expectation, you've got a dominant thought going on, and the Law-of-Attraction is going to deliver that to you again, and again and again. And you say "The reason that I believe this, is because it is true." And we say, the reason that you believe it, is because you've practiced the thought. All that a belief is, is a thought that you keep practicing". - Abraham Hicks
What Celebrities say about Visualizing

Wayne Gretzky

Wayne Gretzky is widely considered not only a good ice hockey player but the best ice hockey player of all time. Gretzky holds 61 ice hockey records.  In Gretzkys own often quoted words: “We taped a lot of famous pictures on the locker-room door: Bobby Orr, Potvin, Beliveau, all holding the Stanley Cup. We’d stand back and look at them and envision ourselves doing it. I really believe if you can visualize yourself doing something, you can make that image come true . . . I must have rehearsed it ten thousand times. And when it came true it was like an electric jolt went up my spine.”
Arnold Schwarzenegger
Arnold Schwarzenegger first became "Mr. Universe", the world heavyweight Champion. After that he re-invented himself to become the best paid Hollywood actor of his time. He then re-invented himself again to become the Governer of California. The secret to this unusual amount of success he explains as follows:

Boredom is a Creation of the Mind
Seeking happiness out in the circumstance-world instead of within is the #1 cause of ALL suffering. Sex, Food and Shopping can only provide happiness temporarily. They would taste much better if sometimes you could practice restraint. You dont have to act like a whiny child in a sweets shop who needs instant gratification. Do without sometimes. Do without Television, Sex, Food, Alcohol sometimes. Not all the time, because that would defeat the purpose of restraint which is to gain control over the inner will and also much more enjoy things like food, sex, television. There is a very powerful exercise I sometimes do in coachings with people. I send them to a place they consider boring or uneventful. I ask them to stay there until they are totally and completely blissful. This may take an hour. It may take many hours. It may take several days. The purpose of the exercise is to experience bliss as coming from within...not from out there. Boredom is a creation of the mind. If you have ever been in the desert or a similar plane of nothingness you will quickly notice that you go through different phases, often beginning with boredom and tiredness but then, as you break through those resistances you move up the scale of emotions so that it is possible to feel completely happy and free despite there being "nothing" there and "nothing" to do.
 A persons actions show what they really believe
Your innermost beliefs determine the reality you experience. If you want to know what you or someone else really believes, look at the actions. What they say they believe, want to believe, pretend to believe, write, think is not always the best indicator of their innermost beliefs. Some examples: * Famous Spiritual Guru Deepak Chopra claims that we can re-structure our body by thought alone, yet he goes to the gym for workout regularly. What he therefore really believes is that some physical movement is required to re-structure the body. * Another famous new-age teacher, Joe Vitale, claims that no work is required to attract abundance or achieve something, yet the guy is a 24-7 workaholic. What he therefore really believes is that work is beneficial. * I recently met someone who obnoxiously kept telling us that he loves everything and everyone unconditionally and that he has let go of anger forever. He also happened to mention that he does not consider any acts bad or wrong. So just for fun I stole his wallet he had left lying on the table. When he noticed his wallet is gone I thought he might be a little upset, what what came next was much more than that: He completely lost his composure and his "love and light" charade had disappeared. He totally freaked out, started blaming the staff - at which point I revealed I had taken his wallet. I said: "Unconditional Love is easier said than done" and left it at that. He soon thereafter left our table :-) What he therefore really believes is that love is sometimes justified and sometimes not. * A friend of of a friend claims he is financially well-off, and yet he keeps having to display his expensive clothes and brands. If he were really well-off he would not have to make a case of it every day. In your own life you can stop pretending you believe in something and look at your daily actions to tell you what you really believe.  And its not a bad thing to believe you have to do X in order to get Y. It is more detrimental to believe that but then pretend that you believe Z. Once you get very clear about what your innermost and deepest convictions about reality are, you are in a position to change them. You certainly cannot change them if you wont even admit they are your Beliefs. Compensation Actions vs. Inspired Actions Compensation-Actions are things you do to compensate for negative beliefs and emotions. Inspired Actions are the things you do when you are free of fear and negativity. If for instance you believe and feel that you are ugly, no amount of surgery, cosmetic treatment, fitness training and dieting will ever overcome that belief. Those are compensation-actions which might create temporary relief or temporary gain, but no real and lasting breakthrough. Now if you have changed your belief to "I am beautiful" and you then feel inspired to have cosmetic treatment or fitness training, those same actions can become inspired-actions and will create results. In other words, its a waste of energy to try to act-over negative inner programming. To find out whether you are being driven by ineffective compensation-actions or inspired-actions you can try the following: a) Make a list of all the actions you took in the past week b) For each item ask yourself why you took that action. Was it inspired by love or fear? By a sense of responsibility or a sense of frustration? By enthusiasm or anger? By joy or doubt? And simply write down C (Compensation) or I (Inspiration) after each action. c) To uncover the negative beliefs you could ask yourself "What would someone who is doing this have to belief?" And then simply accept whatever emotion arises as a reaction to this question. Right thereafter you could ask: "What would I like to believe or think instead?" and either write down or visualize that new idea. d) In your new state you may still do some of the old actions but they will feel different. Or you might have entirely new ideas of what to do or how to do it. So what you have here is yet another very simple yet very powerful tool for transformational processing. The main point here is really that it is so much more fulfilling and real to go deep within before running around and seeking to change things at the periphery. Failing to do so is like trying to fix a bad tooth by brushing your teeth and popping a pain-killer instead of going to its root and pulling it out. The tooth brushing and pill might make you feel better temporarily, but in the background waiting for you, is still the issue of the bad tooth that is aching from its roots. Your deeper seated core-beliefs are in the background waiting for you and once you relax again just a little, they will come to the forefront to haunt you. This is a technique to address core-beliefs. Another technique to do so is described in my Video "A Technique for Clearing Limitations". Yet another method is described in my eBook "Advanced Reality Creation". There are also several within my audio-programs. You understand why I continually publish material on addressing core-beliefs...because that is the ultimate medicine and the ultimate answer to peoples issues.
    How to Visualize for Manifestation In my coaching work we don't "Visualize for Manifestation" so that something can happen in the Future but so that something happens right now - in your energy-body and with your well-being. By visualizing you energize and magnetize yourself. Yes, this alone has effects on your physiology and everyday reality and can influence what you do and do not attract throughout the day and week. But more specifically it keys you in to noticing opportunities and the correct actions that will lead you to your goal. For Reality Creators a form of daily practice or discipline is a must - be it in "Intending" or "Visualizing" or "Releasing" or Meditating or writing "Gratitude Lists". Why? Because reality happens every day too. And so your influence can happen every day too. Basic Reality Creation
  1. Write down something you want (Define)
  2. Visualize it as real as your current surroundings (Focus)
  3. Feel enthusiasm and gratitude about having received (Activate)
  4. Trust as if it had already happened here and now (Release)
  5. Write down what you would be doing if it had already happened (Physicalize)
  6. Do these things (Physicalize)
More Detailed Visualization
Choose a reality/desire/goal you would like to intensify your focus on, and answer the following questions about it: a)What facial expression will you have the moment it comes true? b)What will food taste on the evening of the day it comes true? c)Who are you going to tell that it comes true? d)What are people going to think when it comes true? e)What will you be doing the week after it has come true? f)What new goals will you have after it has already come true? g)What feelings will you have in the days after it comes true? h)At what time of day would you prefer it to come true? Forced Imagination vs. Receptive Imagination
If we were honest then we must admit that most people are too lazy to Visualize, too lazy to choose their own thoughts at least once in awhile. Visualization requires practice. Do not force mental images, do not force your focus, instead get into a mood of Relaxation and intend to focus on pleasant things and then receive whatever comes up. Whatever comes up effortlessly and naturally, that's what you can Visualize. If you force yourself to think things, you quickly lose the motivation to practice. Instead just be receptive. Put the Ego aside and see what life would like to give you as a gift. And then See, Hear, Feel in your Imagination. Imagination is a very powerful tool if you learn how to use it. You can use Imagination to directly influence reality. Your day will go differently than if you had not used this tool.
"Before God manifested Himself, when all things were still hidden in Him... He began by forming an imperceptible point; that was His own thought. With this thought He then began to construct a mysterious and holy form... the Universe." - Zohar
The Labels Exercise
Imagine holding a sieve under a waterfall. Depending on whether your filter or sieve is clean or dirty, the water will come out at the other end clear or muddy. It is the same with energy. Energy always rushes through your body and being. If you let that energy run through a negative filter/thought/label you will feel it as "fear", if you let it run through a positive filter you will feel the very same energy as excitement. Positive and Negative Feelings are the same energy. Therefore, if you suppress "negative" feelings you also suppress positive feelings. Next time you feel fear, try the following: Call it excitement. Remove the label "fear" and allow yourself to see life as a game and the thing you were afraid of as some exciting and interesting challenge to overcome. You will notice that the energy transforms within a few seconds. Convert worry to wonder. Next time you tell yourself "I worry how this will turn out", change it to "I wonder how this will work out". The transition from worry to wonder can be especially entertaining. One minute you were contracted and miserable, the next you are curious and eager. If you have fallen in love with someone and into the Illusion that you "need" that person, as most pop-songs prescribe, change that with "I prefer". You dont "need" anything or anyone. "I prefer" is also vastly more powerful than "I want". A label-switch that has already made its way into popular culture and management theory goes from "problem" to "challenge". Of course many have used and abused this one or say "challenge" and still feel "problem". So when there is a problem really do try to label it as a challenge and also see it as something fun to test your powers on. Thats the difference - seeing it as something fun to test your skills on. If you have no trust in your skills or the future everything will seem like a "problem". But if you do have that basic trust and zest for life everything will seem like a game. Another one is turning a reaction into a response. A reaction is something automatic. A response is a conscious choice. Note: Having no label at all helps you perceive reality as it really is. Creating new and positive labels for things helps you create reality as you would prefer. But the first step is always to get in touch with reality as it is.

visualization experiment

The Reality Creation Experiments

The Visualization Experiment (originally posted June 2014) Process: The Visualization Experiment Purpose: To test the effect of Imagination on Physical Reality Duration: 33 Days Participants: Me and YOU. Instruction I will choose one item I would like to manifest, such as a house, a car, a relationship, a body in good shape, a job, a healing, a sum of money or anything else. I will focus only on this one item throughout and will not change the goal during the process. I will choose something that is really important to me and preferred wholeheartedly. While visualizing and thereafter, I will not concern myself with the how, when, where of manifestation. Most importantly I will visualize the end result or end state, as if has already happened. I will therefore not engage in any activities that imply that it has not yet happened, unless it appears as if I am being "invited" or "drawn" to certain activities that are directly linked to manifestation. For example if my intention is to miraculously manifest a beautiful house, then for the duration of the 33 day experiment, I will not go looking for houses. Why? Because I am imagining I already have it. If however someone approaches me and offers me a house "out of the blue", I will accept the invitation and go look at it. Why? Because this is the universe responding to what was imagined. But the main aspect of this exercise is the visualization, not the activity. I will visualize the item every day for at least 3-5 minutes or until I feel "infused" with it. Then I will let go and go about my regular daily activities. After Day 10 I will only visualize it every second day to allow for more "letting go" time. On Day 30 I will visualize for the last time and then spend another three days in "letting go". That simply means that on Day 31, 32 and 33 I will not visualize and instead let go every time the idea comes up. Then, if I am up to it, and regardless of result, I will write an experience report for this website. This is to help all the people who keep quietly asking themselves: So what really is the effect of Imagination on Reality? The Instructions are simple and straightforward. For all those participating, please keep it simple. Visualize as if you already have it, period. Allow yourself to follow through no matter what. Anyone can find 3-5 minutes a day for such an important issue. If you really want to know whether your imagination influences your reality, then you will find the time. When visualizing, do not strain or force yourself. Simply enjoy whatever comes up on the item you chose. Put yourself in the picture rather than viewing the picture or yourself from outside. Be the person in the picture. Include sound, smell, touch and perhaps even taste. If you like, make an entire movie scene with conversations. For example: What would people be saying to you when you show them your wonderful manifestation of a new reality? If you like, you can listen to music that touches you while visualizing. Also experience some Gratitude for what you are imagining. If you imagine that you "already have it", you would feel Gratitude. Experience Reports You can submit your experience report after 33 days from now. Questions on this will not be accepted to encourage you to consult your own intuition. Submitting your report, regardless whether it is positive or not, is a tremendous help to people, who, despite all the literature on the subject, are still wondering. I will carry this experiment out with an item of my own and write a full report once done. Your report should contain the following: What item you visualized. Whether you adhered to the instructions or created your own variation. Whether it was easy to follow through. How you felt while and after visualizing. What events happened that are linked to the visualized item. And whether there was a manifestation. Best wishes, Fred Dodson *** These are the results of my 33-day Visualization experiment. I haven't had a car in 2 years. The reason is that I have mostly been travelling and my car only racked up parking tickets without ever being driven. But after 2 years I thought "Well, I`d like a car again. But I don't want to pay for it, so let's see if I can manifest one with my mind only". Having rented a specific BMW recently, I enjoyed the feeling of driving it, so I chose it as my visualization target. I visualized every night before falling asleep. The first few nights went well. I envisioned driving it, smelling it, steering it, handling the keys and even mundane things such as getting license plates for it. On the fifth night however, it was starting to get boring. There was a distinct lack of gratitude  - and where there is lack of gratitude or emotion, no manifestation occurs. I opened my eyes and flipped open the smartphone to check how much this car actually costs. And I found that it cost less than half of what I thought it cost. This didnt add to my inspiration. So what to do? Should I visualize something else? I had obviously chosen something I didnt really want that much. These days I care more about people than about objects. First I handled these thoughts as-objections by simply acknowledging them, letting go and putting focus back on the visualization. But after doing that I found that I am still not interested in the car. I was concerned about changing my visualization because I had instructed my readers to stick to one goal "no matter what".  But as I let go of that concern, a new option presented itself: I would visualize my dream-house at my dream-location....and the car would simply be parked in front of that house, as part of the overall image! This way I wasnt cheating, I was still including the car. My new visualization was a house on the Northeast Coast of the U.S., near the water...my favorite climate. There is a boat-garage that leads directly to the ocean. So I get out of bed, walk down the stairs, and there is the boat and water. In the following nights I had much fun imagining myself in that house, hearing the waves, seeing what things look like when there is a storm and when its sunny. I saw beloved ones with me in the house. I saw the car parked outside. I heard the sails of boats chime in the wind. I felt a constant and wonderful breeze and smelled the waters. The visualization did not get boring. Instead, the more I imagined, the more I felt naturally at home there. There weren't any objections to this house except for "this will take a little longer than 33 days". So, as I teach in my books, I acknowledged the objection and breathed it out and refocused on the image. 15 days into the experiment I felt that I owned the place, that it was mine, that I had claimed it. No outside indicators to match my new belief had occurred yet, but that didnt change the fact that "it is done". Its just something you feel inside. You come to a point where you are certain that its done, regardless of whether there is any physical evidence for it yet. When "its done" it matters not how long it takes to physically manifest. It will manifest at just the right time. Before something manifests fully "pre-signs" usually occur. Such "pre manifestations" aren't the real thing but they are sign-posts showing you that you are on the right track and that your imagination is having a real impact. From day 21 onwards I had gotten lazy about the image and it gradually receded into the background of consciousness. I was still thinking of the house now and then but wasnt deliberately visualizing anymore. The laziness came from the fact that I felt it was "already done" but no outside manifestation had  happened yet, so it seemed a good time to let go. Precisely on day 33 of my Experiment, on its very last day, something remarkable happened. I didn't even know it was the last day of the Experiment until I checked later on. The "pre manifestation" showed up, injecting new inspiration. Unexpectedly. Magnificently. I happen to be on visit in NYC and was invited by someone to do a podcast-interview on reality creation. I had to take a one hour drive out east to a place called "Broad Channel", a remote island that belonged to Queens, NYC. Arriving there I instantly saw everything I had visualized: Hundreds of quaint, small houses from which boats were taken out to sea. The breeze. The sounds of sails in the wind. New York City was the last place I had expected such a neighborhood, but there it was. Just like I had imagined. What made this so remarkable was that I had never actually seen such houses, that were literally above water and supported by beams and poles, live and in reality (except in Venice, Italy). I had only seen them in  my imagination in the last weeks. However...none of these houses were mine. So I understood the experience as a "pre sign" an indicator that my Imagination had influenced "the field" to some extent. Arriving at the house where the interview was to take place I learned that the houses in this little neighborhood were rather affordable. Nothing you`d normally expect from that location. Maybe Hurricane Sandy had caused so much damage that the real estate prices had plummeted. In fact, I could have purchased a house right there and then and the manifestation would be complete. But I did not. The manifestation is supposed to be that "I already own it", not necessarily that I pay for it.  So I shall continue visualizing, now with renewed zest. Furthermore, I will not only "see" the house but actually feel that I live there. Despite my teaching this stuff for the last few decades I am still impressed at how vivid imagination influences reality, often when least expected. It still amazes me because its outside of the understanding of the linear mind. If there is something you imagined that came true, send in your report. Your success-report helps people have more confidence in their Imagination. ***

These are results of the Visualization Experiment sent in by readers. This first one was sent in by Priya from Toronto:

I have a little story to report...I've been scripting in the last month but felt something was missing. All my manifestations have been more or less inadvertent although I connected the dots later. And because I was way too attached and anxious about the manifestions I was serious about, so they continued to evade me. I wanted to effect a conscious and deliberate manifestation this time. This week I came across a copy of Neville Goddard's work called The Law and the Promise and found it incredible with the level of detail and the great visualization instructions.
 
So on Friday, my daughter was hit in the stomach a few times during a ball game at summer camp.
On the Saturday morning, she complained of severe stomach pains, so my husband took her to the walk in clinic. The doctor was afraid of a possible appendicitis issue as the ball had hit her in that area and he asked us to take her to the hospital. I felt this would be the perfect time to try the visualization. So on the way to the hospital, I visualized a male doctor walking into the waiting room at the end of our visit and telling us that she was completely fine and strong little girl.
 
So we got to the hospital and interestingly there were only female doctors on duty. I don't know why I'd envisioned a male doc initially but I stayed with that scene and replayed it over and over. We eventually got into the waiting room and a male doctor came in, checked my daughter and said that she seems to be fine but to rule out any liver and spleen damage, they would do a bunch of tests (ultrasound and bloodwork). These tests took hours (we were in the hospital for about 11 hours in total). During that whole time I kept visualizing the same scene.
 
When they called our name at the end of all the tests to go into the room, we expected that doctor had left his shift but he walked back into the room and told us she she was "completely fine". The only difference in my visualization was that a nurse (rather than the doctor) told me that she was a "strong little girl" after doing her bloodwork.
 
So now I'm visualizing attracting the perfect publisher for my novel...I'll let you know what happens!

Theo’s Visualization Experiment

I started my Visualization Experiment without knowing what item to visualize. I thougt about visualizing a new job. But because I already had an invitation for a job interview at that time, that item didnt feel right. It didn’t have the right energy. It took me about two day before I had the right item: I wanted to experience being/living/working/teaching/studying at an international wizard’s school (like in Harry Potter). That wish had a lot of positive and joyful energy in it.

For about ten days I visualized participating in different kind of daily activities and classes at this wzard’s school:

  • Visualizing items that I want to have: now - within this setting - it does feel right to visualize a new job.

  • Doing excercises in changing past experiences: it’s fun to notice that doing such excercises makes it’s easier / more effortless to do certain activities (in my past I have already done it, so now it’s easy to do it again).

  • Imagining being/living in this ‘wizard’reality makes it fun to work on changing reality ‘all the time’ (it’s allowed!!!)

  • etc.

After about ten days the whole experiment drifted somehow to the back of my mind. It was not something that I had to do. I only ‘worked’ on it every 3-4 days.

While I ‘live’ living/being at a wizard’s school visualizing more than one item doesn’t feel like cheating.

Some result’s so far:

  • ‘School’ items are popping up: I met my old school teacher from about 45 years ago. Hadn’t seen him in 40 years or so.

  • I heard the name of a former class mate being being mentioned on the radio. Haven’t seen him for about 35 years or so.

  • In one week time I received three invitations for a job interview. And at least one of the jobs has an international character. Some of the work will be abroad

 A few days later Theo sent the following email: About Wizard schooling:
Something amazing happened last night. I was at the high school of my eldest son Tom. They had an end of the year evening with all kind of sketches done by the students and the teachers. One of the sketches done by the students was about Hogwarts, Harry Potter's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry!! Coincidence ... or magic or  ...  tuning in on the energy ?!
 
Actually, when I'm looking back in time I have had a lot of such coincidences. To name a few:
  • Years ago I wanted to know more about NLP. I formulated it somehow like: "It would be nice if I could learn more about NLP", accompanied by a sense of wonder. Guess what: The next day I received an invition to take part in a basic NLP course.
  • When my wife and I talked about getting children we were certain that we would like to have twins. We thought it would be wonderful to have twins. That was even before my wife was pregnant. Guess what: Our first children were twins!
So what helps me often when I really want something: Make the 'wish' and accompany it with the 'right' emotion. Like "a sense of wonder", a "sense of excitement", "already expecting it", etc. ..,
This way it works for me anyway. Sometimes I think that any method that you can think of could work to create things (I'm certain that many NLP-excercises can do much more then what is reguarly axpected from it, ...... when you use them with the right mindset and set of emotions). I remember a sentence from a book that I read many years ago. A magician in that book said about his magic: "It's just a trick."

Freds note: This manifested in a very curious way. Probably not the way Theo expected, but it did manifest. Typically, the subconscious takes things literally.
This was sent in by Stefania from Connecticut:
I wanted some quick cash to pay for a family vacation in Europe. Instead of visualizing the cash I imagined all the cities we would visit: London, Paris, Rome and others. After three nights of traveling through Europe in my mind my aunt who knew I wanted to come visit her in Paris called up and said she would invite us and pay the tickets! She had never paid anything for us so this came as a surprise to us. The flight is booked and I will now visualize for London which is next on the list!
Freds note: This is a great example of manifestation, thank you!
This was sent by Martin from Germany:
I did the experiment, with visualizing to "have" a new BMW 120i convertible. Each session consisted to lay down on my bed with closed eyes for 8 minutes (with timer set on my cell phone), practicing to imagine the desired object being in my possession. After each session I wrote a short note on paper to document what happened.Immediately when starting, I realized objections to pop up in my mind, saying things like: "Even if I own the car, how in the world could I ever finance all the costs for repairs, gasoline, insurance, parking etc. ? This is just impossible!". Also in one session I had the objection of feeling somehow "guilty to own a car which is much nicer than the cars of my friends and family".... But throughout the experiment I got better and better in letting these thoughts go very quickly, not to feel guilty, and just enjoying the imagined car.So in my fantasies I did a lot of nice stuff with the car, like going to the mountains with it, visiting some far-living friends spontaneously or just driving aroung in the city and listening to nice music. After a while it got a bit boring to drive around alone, so I included my friends in the fantasies sharing some nice trips with them. This gave me a strong feeling of being thankful about my wonderful friends which I have even without owning a car like this of course.At about day 12 of the experiment, I began to realize that I was starting to have difficulties in concentrating on the subject. Instead, when lying down I started to think about my work or some current problems or tasks that need a quick response. This was also a hint for me: It showed me, that maybe in fact I might not be "ready" for the car and that I maybe have to do some other stuff first.
There was also one day I fell asleep during the session, and on one day I forgot to do it because of having troubles at work.On day 21 something funny happened: I suddenly found a possibility I might actually be able to finance the car. I remembered that, when working for a company in 2012, I prepared and held a very specialized and expensive programming course there for their customers. If I improve this course and offer it to companies I can charge between €900 to €1.000 per day for it. As I would need a car to drive to the companies I also could deduct the costs for the car taxwise. So I started to prepare this course since about 1 week now, every day after getting up I work for 30 minutes on it , before starting my normal work. I do not know if this idea will work and I know it is quite some way to go until I finish the preparation, but I have fun in doing it, and also now after practicing "to let go" of my desire to own the car, I do not feel to much pressurized or dependant of the outcome.In summary I'd say the thing I did most enjoy about the experiment was that I deliberately relaxed, closed my eyes and then had some nice thoughts. This was really enjoyable and also refreshing. It used to feel like a nice little nap. In the moment I am considering to repeat this experiment with something "closer" , like "creating a great course and having fun with it and MAYBE even being successful with it".
Freds note: If there is a belief-system that you first need to "earn it" (which is fine), then you will typically get "ideas" on how to finance it, before it manifests. If I were you, I`d continue visualizing the car about once or twice a week.
I thank you all for participating in these Experiments and sending authentic Feedback. This way readers learn of the challenges and possibilities of this skill.

This Manifestation-Report based on the previous 33-day Visualization-Experiment was originally not published by me, because I felt it was not yet "complete". However, a few days ago this reader, Renata., from Germany, sent me a note reporting successful manifestation.
This is the report she first sent:
Dear Fred ----!!! I am enjoying my first "real" holidays since the death of my husband 3 years ago --- together with our 2 daughters .... In Turkey I refind a paradise: it is what I intentioned it to be: the starting point into a new life. Maybe now it is too late to send in my report --- but I loved to participate in this wonderful experiment...
Visualisation Goal: I find the ideal soul-life-love-partner.
Day 1: The experiment starts with very strong energy; streams of love and affection come up; spontaneous remembering of myths, counts and stories of lovers of all ages/aeons. I imagine scenes, dialogues ... it's like an inner cinema
Day 2: The second day of the experiment surprises with thoughts like "am I worthy to find a new love"?; old desparation comes up and I am able to realize it ...
Day 3: After my meditation in the morning: A complete Kamasutra (!) is coming up with feelings and images ----including all details of physical positions and sensations ...; songs of my youth arise in my inner ear ... I sing and remember some old songs, for instance: "Donna, Donna, Donna" from Joan Baez ... Singing all day long! (Must have been as a child since I did so for the last time ...)
Day 4: Some kind of disappointment is coming up because all of these inner life images I still don't enjoy in real life ... I feel like God's forgotten child ...
Day 5: Old patterns of hate-love suddenly appear and I realize that there always had been an old structure inside that held me back from free loving ... memories come up from situations of my former relationships ...
Day 6: Feelings of strength and safety become more and more dominant .... Day 7: I meet some friends and there a nice young and married man. We have a little talk and I think: Fantastic, Universe is sending me a sign! I am on the right way (to heaven ) ... I feel happy!! It is the 7th day and there are seven people participating in this meeting! We do a meditation together, theme: Healing of the heart At the end I find a white feather on my hand -- in real! I take it with me and it is laying in my diary now! In the next days I imagine scenes with my new partner: hand in hand watching the World-Cup-games , talking all night long, laughing together, kissing, writing emails, loving, and so many things --- wonderful! Affirmations: I have forgiven! I love myself. I am worthy to be happy. I am worthy to be loved.
Day 15: Some not specific offers from the universe --- 2 men come and go, but it is charming to be with them; it is like a message: you are never alone ... And my friendship with my old "Buddy" is becoming more and more clear, supportive and free. Day 17: All of a sudden an old colleague from Berlin is visiting me here in my little village ... And he stays for 2 days ---- it was so much fun ... I like him very much but he is not the right partner for life partnership. Of course we will stay friends forever ... Real friendship is so warm and everlasting!
Day 20: Love emotions become stronger and stronger, sweetness softens my heart ... Day 21: A day with my family in absolute harmony!!!! This is incredible! Fantastic! We had been together so near, from heart to heart ... I can't describe this wonderful day .... Day 22: Another WONDER is arising --- All of a sudden I receive an email of a man I had been loving last year, but he had left me because of some old unconscious patterns, --- He writes, that he would be overall grateful to meet me again ..... I thought about it and I agreed to meet him after my holidays at the end of july .... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Day 23-25: I hold a course for young people: "The happiness-course .... 3-day-teaching in the theme of happiness ...." It was a GREAT experience, and the young people gave me wonderful feedback, I feel undescribable happy .-..... I am in the FLOW...... it is like in heaven ...
Day 27: Again an energy loss, old resignation, and the thinking: This is not meant for me ... Love is meant for the others, but not for me ...
Day 28: Heartful talking to people of my mediation group ... Again I feel connected ... with the field of love.
Day 29: By running around in my house, preparing my first big holidays after the death of my husband, together with my kids, I all of a sudden feel that my ground chakra had opened!! It was so surprising, and I couldn't stop it. It is like a channel had been opened and now the energy is flowing so intense .... This state is lasting for 2-3 hours ...
Day 30: By picking a card from a card deck I love, I receive the card: "Great Luck" I also get connected to a new facebook friend and a woman I admire will be visiting me --- from Hawaii ... Last dream during the time of the experiment: I am in another world where there are so many people, young and old people. They are experiencing teleportation and levitation. A girl can do it the best. She has the power to be concentrated and while doing the exercise she is becoming translucent ... I know that I could do it myself -- otherwise I wouldn't have gotten at that place ... Some more images of exercising manifestation follow. I think: I cleaned my channel, by opening for love and forgivenenss. By accepting what ever comes up, by consciously saying yes to whatever is and then letting go (first understanding old negative patterns like resignation and then letting them go), again get concentrated on the goals I desire to manifest in my life ... While I am writing my "report" I am sitting at a wonderful POOL in Turkey, the sun is shining, my kids are still sleeping, and hope and faith are arising so strong, I am laughing all by myself ... and I feel happy. Thank you, dear Fred, for this experiment. I learned so much, I can't describe it all. Your experiments are so supportive and I will always join them .... Even if we never met personnally I feel connected and I love your work! Thank you SO MUCH!!!!! What do you think: Should I write you, when I will have found "him"? 
Then, weeks later she sent me the picture above and this message:
Dear Fred, sorry --- you never answered my report, but nevertheless I would like to complete the experiment: I really found "him" --- 3 weeks after ending the exercises. 
So: Congratulations Renata, and thanks for serving as a good example for others.
Update: Manifestation Accomplished As reported one week ago I had been working on the visualization "house at the Atlantic Ocean in the Northeastern U.S., no money invested". My intention for doing so is to help my students and readers to figure out whether this imagination-creates-reality stuff works. A "pre-manifestation" of what I had visualized took me to a place in New York City called "Broad Channel". A second "pre-manifestation" has now taken me to a nice little place called Branford, Connecticut, where I currently reside. Its even more similar to what I had visualized. The seagulls are more numerous and the houses are bigger. How did it happen? A friend learned that I am on the road in the U.S. He said he had an unused house standing in Connecticut, three minutes walking distance from the Atlantic Ocean. The house is unused because his family had apparently gotten too big for it, so he purchased another one nearby.  He asked me if I would like to use the house. I said "Yes!". It`s funny how these things work out. Just a few weeks ago I was in dreary, rainy Munich, Germany, and today life has brought me to a pleasant and sunny ocean-side house. At this point I could actually say "Visualization Accomplished!" and if this were a completely private experiment I probably would leave it at that, but I won't. I will label it as another, this time bigger "pre-manifestation". Why? Because not all is to my liking. The sandy beach is missing, instead its a rocky beach. I had visualized sand, not rocks:-) I drove to the sandy beach today its a few miles down the road. Furthermore, the house is not directly at the Ocean, but "second row". That's only a three minute walk but still. Also, while the house is really great, I believe I can do better.  There is no boat-garage. The solution to all of this? More visualizing! If you think I am being picky or "pushing my luck", rest assured I am actually happy to settle with this as a successful instance of reality creation. However, readers of this website need to know that this is what "the Universe" typically does: Deliver better and better options until the real thing is manifested. So I will keep on visualizing. And I am going to add something I forgot: I love Lighthouses. I want to live in a place from which I can see a Lighthouse. So what these reality-manifestations do is help you refine and specify what you really want. This completes the public / non-private part of the visualization experiment. Greetings from Branford, Connecticut. Note: Anyone who lives in the area and would like a day of live reality-creation coaching, book here.   This Experiment was originally opened in February 2014: The 21 day Attraction and Manifestation Experiment A few days ago I thought of someone I hadn't thought of for 15 years. He was a reality-creation-student of mine who had cancer and it didn't look as if he would survive another year. I wondered what had become of him. I tried looking him up on Google but I had forgotten how his last name is spelled. Today, he sent a friend request on Facebook. What are the odds of that? I think a thought and then it manifests. Not only that, my answer to whether he died of cancer is also answered. He is alive and in good health. So this little mini-miracle inspired me to start a 21 Day Attraction and Manifestation experiment - with you. Hardly anyone really believes that this law-of-attraction and manifesting-stuff really works. They'd like it to work. They dream of it to work. Even people who have already made it work many times still doubt and retro-actively blame "other things" for their manifestations. I have had many students who came to me poor and penniless, relationship-less or sick and then end up high income, married or healthy and still ascribe it to "lucky coincidence". I`d say that 80% of my students manifest exactly what their goal was but only 40% acknowledge that it was due to their manifesting-practice. So join me in this experiment to, once again, check if it "really works". You have nothing to lose. If it does not work you win because you can quit wasting your precious time on self-improvement literature that says this stuff work. And if it does work you win because you once again remind yourself of this power. This will be done very simply. For 21 days, every day, I will make one specific statement of intention in writing, speaking/affirmation, visualization or prayer, and then let go. As simple as that.  I will however write down each intention I made so that I can check after 21 days. My intentions will be big ones and small ones, important ones and playful ones. Some will be from the heart, some from the Ego. So you write it down. Then, if you want, you also visualize, think, speak or pray it. Then you let go by forgetting about it. You forget about it by getting involved in other things of your daily life. At the End of the 21 Days I will look at the list and check what has and what has not manifested. I will publish my report here. I`d appreciate if you join me in this Experiment. Make one Intention of what you would like to be, do, have or experience, write it down, let go. Send me your report after 21 days and indicate whether you would like it published anonymously or with name or with email. Send in your results using the Contact Form on the first page right side. Why 21 days? Because that is the time some researchers say it takes to create a new habit. Why keep it so simple? Because its easier to keep a daily discipline with things that are easy to do. All the Best and I look forward to your results. Keep in mind that your participation helps thousands of readers of this website make an informed decision on whether to pursue "the law of attraction" or not. It is only when real-life-people (not marketers and publishers) experiment with this stuff that the truth of how it works is revealed. Enjoy! *** These were some of the results of the Experiment, sent in by readers: I begin with my own report: I once again did not follow my own rules exactly in that on some days I wrote down more than one intention, on other days I wrote down no intention. But in sum I did have 21 intentions. My method was just writing it down and then forgetting about it. Sometimes I "thought" something "more intensely" for a few seconds as in "this would be really, really, really good!". The net result was: Of 21 intentions 10 came true, 2 came half-way true, 2 did not come true, and 7 could yet come true. In sum 11 have not yet come true, of which 7 could still come true. For only 2, the time for them to come true has passed. One of these was that I had very dry skin of my hands. I wrote down: "My skin heals completely within the next three days". The three days passed and I still had very dry hand skin, so I started applying moisturizing creme generously. I will re-intend that one without putting a time-stamp on it. The second intention that didnt come true did not involve myself but was intended for someone else. Such intentions have the tendency not to come true, even if they are well intended (but that doesnt stop me from trying, because sometimes it works. Wishing well for others elevates your energy). Of the 7 outstanding intentions I feel confident that most of them will come to pass. Of the 10 intentions that did come true, some of them were truly outstanding gems. Only one week ago, I did not have enough registrations for my Reality Creation Course in Munich. There were plenty for the other Courses (Stuttgart and London), just not for Munich. So I wrote in my intention list: "I have at least 10 additional registrations for the upcoming Course in Munich". I sent out a special Newsletter targeted specifically to people who live nearby and 12 additional registrations came in within only few days. That was remarkable. Another "just for fun" intention was "I discover something that has not been discovered yet". This is an intention I have applied several times in the past. This intention I completely forgot about. I just re-discovered it now while reading my list. It explained why I was combing the Internet like a researcher and had indeed discovered something very interesting that has probably not yet been noticed and that I will include in one of my next books. One of the items that have not yet manifested is a real area of concern and I realize I`ll have to do some extra work (other than writing down the intention) in order to solve it amicably. I wasnt actually sure if much had manifested, but looking at the list now, Im pleasantly surprised. If current trends continue, the final net result of this list will likely be 70% manifested...which is really spectacular if you think of it. How many things might have manifested without me doing the list? the skeptic would ask. Well, a few of them for sure, but not that many. If they werent so unlikely to manifest I wouldnt have put them on the list. Having a conscious awareness of your intentions and sending those requests out into "the field" skews the universes movements in your favor. One of my intentions on the list was that I would receive reports of other peoples manifested intentions. I received a message on Facebook a few days after I had written down the intention. The person who wrote me the message was, at the time, not even aware of the 21 day experiment. She allowed me to publish her manifested intentions, so I will copy her message here partially. Sent to me by Facebook Member "Thuraiya Alhumanbeing": "I want you to know that after reading and applying a few techniques, i managed to co-create 3 realities though all of them are very simple and material in nature.
  • 1. I was out of money one day and my little boys ran out of diaper. I was so convinced and relaxed when I told my sister that i dont want money to buy diaper but i want diapers. The next morning, i saw a brand new pack of diaper with the exact size i needed and better brand, with slightly torn cover - which made it obvious that someone bought the wrong size and intentionally put it there at the lobby just beside the dustbin. I was stunned with my heart beating so fast despite feeling so convinced that it was meant for me. 2. Someone posted on facebook and suggested that mummies should bring their kids to watch Frozen at the cinema because it was so awesome. I remember simply and briefly feeling the desire and intent to bring my kids out. The next day, our neighbour who had never talked to us before suddenly knocked the door and handed to my partner 4 Frozen movie tickets. We had never gone to the cinema before as a family as we couldnt afford it. 3. I remember telling my partner how I wished someone has an iphone but not using it and would be willing to give it to me since it has been left to collect dust on the shelve. I had totally forgotten about that until i jokingly asked a friend to buy me an iphone. I was shocked but immediately receive it gratefully when she asked if i want to have her iphone that had been left to collect the dust. I'm using this iphone now. I also want to tell you one "crazy" thing i do: when i have a complex issue to solve, i would "call upon" 7 souls to sit around me for me to seek counsel. One of them is you. Thank you for being you. You are a great gift to the world. Sending love and light and all goodness to you". There are other "manifestations" on my list, but they are not for public view. Even after 25 years of teaching the power of Intention, I am still impressed and even surprised at the ease with which some things simply fall into ones lap. My theory on this is that things that manifest so easily, do so because one is "ready" for them. Whatever one is not "ready" for might take a little longer. The following report was sent by "Adbullah Almulla". The report was separated into a private section and a section for publication. That is the part I will paste into here. Other reports will, if and when they are sent to me, be published in a separate post.
    "Here I will mention the intentions and which techniques I used for manifestations ( Most of them I am learning from RC which enables  me to play with my own mixture through imagination, Silence and Asking). Also I include my own observation of each intention throughout the day, I took for each intention a day, two or three days to talk about it but I stopped writing down my observation on day 13. You will see why when you reach day 13.
     
     
    Intention 2- Using A French word I will get from someone near by me to use on very rare occasions (Action)
    Technique: Excitement about the idea + Paying attention to their words for few minutes

It was a rare occasion! Thinking about the situation and the night I spend with friends, It was really a one of a kind experiences! 
     
    Intention 4- Being vegetarian for 10 days (Action)
    Technique: Past experience for being vegetarian for 30 days  (Trust) 
    Observation: I`ve done it, I had times that my body feelt weak and needing some meat, instead I ate more food than usual then I realized it is not good to fill up the stomach just to stop the body feeling weak (Killing the messenger) instead I listen to what it is needed and asked life to give me vegetarian alternative (Opening up to another intention).  
     
    Intention 5- Taking my plan of the trip I am having from a lot of expectations and worries into getting into the unknown and trusting
    Technique: Love + prayer 
     Observation: Once I entered the placem all expectations and worries I had before I arrived, disappeared! Instead I had the attitude of joy

    Technique:Intention 
     Observation: Got to know two old people in their fifties, I fall in love with them at the first sight. Looking at them was amazing to me. I laugh with them for no reason at all just looking at them smiling, we start laughing!
     
    Intention 11- Love (Experience) 
    Technique: Asking the heart, What do you want? love 
     Observation: All day was a flow into the heart. Dancing, relationship, expressing, releasing, drawing  ….  etc

    Technique:One of RC Techniques 
    Observation: No need to include this part any more so from now on, Intentions indeed happen in extremely synchronous way! No need to mention any observation but to enjoy the magical manifestation and the magi of eternal flowing of any intention. I stopped because words start to become meaningless.

    Intention 21: - Gratitude 
    Technique: Intention
     
     Applying this experiment, Made me notice that there is more than what seems to be and how things are created is tremendously magical. For a thought to be manifested is absolutely amazing! I had a sense of the flow of manifestation  which made not much worried about manifesting the desire but rather to enjoy the process of the magical manifestation. I notice that I like to experience life more than doing or having, I don’t know why, but maybe because of the place, I am in right now. 
     
    Thank you for making me a better person 
    Love, 
    Abdullah Almulla

    This was sent in, asking to be published anonymously: 21 days manifestation- experiment These are my results of the 21 days manifestation experiment. I don’t write in detail about my intentions, but about my observations of this experiment. It was interesting to realize which kinds of intentions I have. Sometimes it was not easy to know exactly how I would like my reality to be or which option would be the best for the whole. So one of my strategies was, to reflect the day and ask myself, which occurrences I didn’t like during the day. I have realized which things were disturbing me. It could be some thoughts, beliefa I had about my reality or an emotion and behavior in a special situation. So I changed the belief in “I am grateful for the opposite event thought, belief, emotion or behavior.” These kinds of manifestations happened quite fast. It was like a little change in my psychic patterns, which were helpful to enjoy similar situations more. But what’s about bigger manifestation for the future? I don’t know why, but the most important things I didn’t write down. Maybe I wasn’t even conscious about some intentions I had. But still they were just in my unconscious mind and they had been already manifested. But my conscious mind didn’t believe in this kind of manifestation. I only knew that the best for me would be if…x happens. Because I could see very clear that the energy wants to flow in this direction. So it happened. One thing was about the conditions at which time and place I should do my final year of my school of pedagogy. I wanted to finish this school, so it was also my wish to find the most pleasant way. I was already trying to renew the fixed time, when I should do this. The woman already told me that it is no problem to renew, because I have to finish my studies first. But suddenly she told me that there is a flexible version, which could be interesting for me, but, which is not public and unknown by the most people. She told me, that I can split the year (I would have five years more time), that it doesn’t have to be a fulltime job, I can do it anywhere, that this work just has to do something with my profession and should be at least paid normally. Almost every condition she said was the opposite I was told before. The conditions before were, that I have to stay in the city I finished the school for one year as a fulltime job. So this changed law opens a more flexible future for me which just needs the right steps at the right time. So my next intention was, to know the right steps at the right time. Another conflict I had was also solved, but my conscious mind had no idea how to organize it. I was working with my friend on our intentions with healing methods. So this subject I had was solved at the same day. It was quite easy. The solution was so obvious, but I didn’t see it before. One intention I had was about improving a relationship to a person. I didn’t know if I should write it down or not. I even was not sure if it is good to intervene in these unharmonious energies, because I don’t see this person very often. But she is involved in my life indirectly. I thought that maybe this unharmonious relationship helps me to leave my home-city and find a community to live, because I can see that my home-city is maybe not the right place for me in this time of my life. But after a while I contacted this person. I surprised myself by writing a message to her. I realized that it is never wrong to clear a relationship. Her first reaction was positive and we agreed to meet. Two days I didn’t write any intention. I felt that I didn’t want to manifest new things, but work on the things which are already manifested. One day I just wrote down: “At the moment I have no special intention, because I’ve realized once again, that the things happen by themselves. Even if I do nothing, the best things happen to me. My unconscious intentions are sometimes the most powerful.” I also observed like Fred that manifestations, which have to do with the physical body need more time and maybe also more attention. I’ve learned how to alleviate physical pain in few seconds by intention. It is working very well if it is a small pain. But chronic issues need more time and attention in my case. So when I focus on a chronic complaint I find information, which might help. But I need to put more energy into it, to manifest the new desired reality. Other intentions I completed with the addition, that I want them to manifest at the right time, because I know that things happen very fast in my life and I have to filter out whether I want this experience now or some time later. This was sent in by "Theo": 21-day attraction and manifestation experiment. In the last hree weeks I made 21 intentions. After reading them back I noticed that some of them were the same. So actually I made some 15 really different intentions. One of them came half true: my son is getting a new phone, me not yet  (at first I only wanted a new phone for my son, but the intention only really got energized when I decided that I wanted one too). Another intention was about a new job: I wanted to start at a certain company by March 1-st. Result was that I got an extra interview with the company I wanted to work for. But after the interview I decided that it was not the right place for me. I'm now clearer about what I really want in a job and now have applied for such a job: working for a Finnish organization. Another intention was about improving my Finnish. As a result I'm now back on track with learning the language. Although most of my intentions haven't come true yet, I feel that using this method (bringing attention on 'manifesting' on a daily basis, making it a daily routine) puts energy in the process and makes the realization of the intentions more easy, more automatic. This one was also sent anonymously. The initial note was "nothing of my list manifested". I include that here because it is important for readers to realize that "nothing manifested" can also happen. The writer then goes on to report a manifestation anyway.
    I did the 21 attraction/manifestation experiment in a separate list & none of the physical ones manifested to be honest :)
     
    BUT I'm addicted to making soft intentions & praying in writing now.. Last week, my iPhone headphones broke (AGAIN!) & i didn't want to buy another cheap one to break again in a few weeks! I wanted an original Apple headphones, went to Amazon & some reviews warned that it's fake & not real while others said it was fine.. I didn't want to risk paying for an original just to get a cheap imitation but I also didn't want to bother go out to an actual apple store (I don't know why I didn't think of ordering directly from Apple online!) I wrote down in my notebook that I appreciate my original Apple headphones & completely forgot about it.. I just wanted a headphone set, and instead got a brand new Gold iPhone 5s (with original Apple headphones obviously :D) My husband's old iPhone finally died, and he bought a new one for me & insisted to take mine which is as good as new!!!!!! I absolutely loved my old iPhone & I only wanted headphones.. I wasn't expecting I'll get one coming with a new phone as a gift!
     
    I'm starting to understand religious traditions in a new way:
     
    "If only you relied on Allah a true reliance, He would provide sustenance for you just as He does the birds: They fly out in the morning empty and return in the afternoon with full stomachs." - Prophet Muhammad
     
    Sounds like the secret of the birds is that they never worry about "how?" they do what needs to be done with blind trust..

    Sent from Katrin in Berlin: Hello Fred, this is my little report on the 21 Day Experiment.  1. I request improvement of my body feeling, walking and knees (I am numb/disabled from the torso downwards) 2. My relationship to my boyfriend is more loving with less arguments and more harmony This intention came true within the 21 Days:) 3. My relationship to Angelika and to my doctors is more harmonious, with less complaints and more communication I felt more loved and respected in these 21 days. Angelika even praised me :) 4. I practice love, gratitude and appreciation for myself, my physical condition and others I felt ore softness but also more anger and frustration. Didnt work. I will keep on practicing.  5. Keep my diet because I feel better that way. This worked 50%. I ate less and more consciously.  6. I practice courage toward others. This worked 80%. I confronted my boyfriend and the landlord.  7. Courage to walk longer distances and go on trips (in spite of my disability) This came true. I traveled 60 km far away from Berlin as well as to several parks and lakes.  8. My boyfriend has a new job by the end of February.          He has become interested in a new job now and has a few options.  9. I have nice dreams and also healing lucid dreams.                                                 I did have several nice dreams after this, including a very memorable one of Italy.  10. I ask for divine guidance, protection and help in general so that I get better in every way.                I injured my finger on the balcony door, it bleeded, but healed fairly quickly.  11. Thank you for new meaning to life and finding ideas, projects and tasks.  Im still on this.  12. I notice new things and shows on TV This happened.  13. I practice less anger and frustration about my knees and just wish to be at peace. I have more trust and dont go to doctors quite as often.  This was a good one. Improvement of 50%. 14. I learn new things.  I did, for example I learned how to use a certain software.  15.  More fun, joy, lightness and humor in my life.  This all came true. I laughed more than usual and am very grateful.  16. Thank you for that wonderful phonecall with the woman from Ireland.  17. Thanks to my boyfriend for how he played the piano 18. Thank you 19. Thank You 20. Thank You 21. Thank You for the 21 Day Experiment. LOA Works. Not every intention manifests, but most do and a lot of things turned to the better, in spite of smaller backlashes and things that didnt work. The 21 Day experiment uplifted me, protected me, guided me and was full of magic. I rarely laughed so often...loudly and silently in my heart.  I am going to do another 21 Days in March! *** This one is another "I had no results" report. Why do I post these? Because its important to hear from real-life people rather than some marketing-hyped illusion. If only one of these many so-called "law of attraction coaches" published a "it didnt work" Testimonial, the world would be so much more real. Good results are not achieved by denying no-results. 21 Day Attraction & Manifestation Experiment Results Hello and greetings from Helsinki, Finland! I wrote down one intention every evening and then forgot about it. I didn't visualize, I didn't force myself to feel anything extra while writing, I just thought of what I would delight in and then wrote it down. I chose things that seemed out of my reach ("I get to visit Iceland in March") and things that felt completely within my personal realms of possibility ("I find the perfect birthday present for my niece" and "Someone gives me a nice compliment"). After 21 days... Only one intention manifested. One. My niece will indeed get a perfect present on her birthday. Needless to say, I was and still am very disappointed. I've had some success with RC in the past so I'm one of the believers but... guess things just weren't meant to be this time or my "goodies" are still on the way and yours truly only needs to be patient and positive. Best regards, Riikka Editors Note: The fact of "disappointment" shows that there was too much attachment to the intentions to begin with. Where there is no attachment, there is no disappointment. I realize thats easier said than done:-) This was sent in by Catherine: I realized one manifestation on my list, and it was very big! I am very happy.
    I wanted to be accepted into the local artists guild which is juried. I went to a meeting many weeks ago to get advice on what the jury wants for images and the artist's statement. I was the least experienced person there. I have not shown my work in any show or galleries as the other artist's had done. I had to do a LOT of releasing on this.
     
    I was accepted!
     
    I manifested 3 other things that were not on my list. 
     
    I am doing a study on crows and they are difficult to photograph. Two days ago I photographed 2 crows fairly close while on my walk. Totally unexpected and delightful.
     
    I have visions of artwork involving  layering photographs. I am fairly low tech and have resisted buying photoshop. I relented and was looking for a class that taught photoshop nearby. I was visiting a friend and talking about photography and she told me about lynda.com. I can learn photoshop from my home for $25 dollars a month!!!! No need to drive 20 minutes to a class once a week for 8 weeks.
     
    I need to frame my photos and the first round was very expensive. The same friend who told me about Lynda.com introduced me to several online resources for frames and mats at very good prices.
     
    So it seems the universe is providing me with things I am excited about and meant to do.
     *** This was sent in by Monica: My 21-Days-Wishfullfilling-Experiment I wrote down 18 wishes, three wishes I only thought of. All small wishes like „I'd like new good and soft writing pens“ or „I wish an extraordinarily good looking Diary“ came true within only a few hours! Some big wishes had no fulfilling date – and so they didn’t come true. But instead: They still vibrate in a field of Positivity ...! About 50 % of bigger wishes came true: I found 3 (!!) new clients, got a huge new vision for my life (which spends lots of enthusiasm and new fresh energy!!) and created a new book project with title and timeline ... And this is my real success in participating in this experiment:
    1. Consciousness: I now know 100 % that if I only wanted to fulfill a wish really seriously, I could manifest it even if it costs stress and some kind of heart attack ... I realized that sometimes it’s better to RESPECT some circumstances such as health and the feelings of my children ...
    2. Acceptance: If a wish didn’t come true even if I wished to fulfill this dream so much, I realized that in accepting this limitation it became ok: Limits can make evident that the time for a manifestation hasn’t come yet ... All manifestations were easy exceot the ones (about 20 %) that didn’t come true, even struggling could not make those wishes come true: After a while I accepted and that was my success: FREEDOM through acceptance!!
    3. Connection: This experiment effected that I now feel extremely connected with my inner knowing and also with my heart, I could improve my serenity and many emotional skills. I felt connected with human kind ... ;-)) I KNOW that everything will come true in a while that belongs to my heart and my life – in easiness – this is sooo wonderful to feel that connected, I really hadn’t experienced this in a long time!
    My real success is: I feel that I am back in the FLOW, I feel so much more connected – this experiment created a new consciousness and awareness in my life, and it’s still holding on! It was a wonderful idea and I thank you a lot, dear Fred!!!! Monica/  ***

    Your message: 21 day manifestation experimentHi Fred, I have participated in a few of your past experiments, but this time I thought I should send in my report. It can be published with my name, but no email address. I didn’t write down one intention every day (I somehow got this wrong from the start), but rather whenever something came up. It turned out that I actually wrote down 21 intentions over the course of the 21 days. I intended for small things and big things, for me and for others. After writing them down, I practiced “letting go” on the intentions, I did nothing else to re-enforce them. The first three small ones were of the kind “X is healthy and in good shape”, because those people were having the flu and feeling bad. They all got well within a few days – I don’t know whether this counts, though, they weren’t terminally ill or something, just the flu… The next two, also small, were “I get X for less than Y Euros”, because two household devices I absolutely can’t go without broke down, but money is still something I struggle with, so they had to be really affordable. Both devices were replaced on the same day at a price lower than what I specified. Then I intended for hearing a delightfully funny joke, I hadn’t heard before, and having a pleasant experience with a person I don’t know yet. Both came true within a few days. I also intended for having a lucid dream. I had the strangest and scariest, most intense and yet uplifting dream I ever had, followed by a nightly series of different funny and vivid dreams. I don’t know if they count as lucid, because while I was somehow aware that I’m dreaming, I just played along and didn’t try to intervene with the story. As I mentioned above, money is a topic I struggle with. Therefore several of the intentions involved my financial situation to improve ("get X Euros by [date]", "earn Y Euros a month", etc.). It did not improve immediately, but through meditation, I gained a few useful insights on why I’m struggling and during the past ten days I had more orders from my clients than at any one time before. Therefore, I’d say, this one came true as well. A big one was: “X finds a publisher for his boardgame”. Last week-end X attended a boardgame developer conference and three major publishing houses were delighted by the game and are currently reviewing prototypes. There’s no contract yet, but it’s very likely, one of them will publish it. What didn’t come true yet is “I finish the first draft of my new novel by Easter”, but it’s more of a goal anyway. So far, I’m on schedule to meet this goal, so it may very well come true. What also didn’t come true is: “I lose weight effortlessly until I reach my ideal weight”. Nothing happened. I neither lost nor gained weight. It’s no surprise though, as I currently can’t let go of the issue. Another rather big one, as this person was very dear to me: “I receive word from X and revive our friendship from years ago” did not come true. Yet. After our car had to be fixed several times over the past months I wrote down: “our car feels good and functions perfectly fine”. So far, no more problems, but it was only one week since that intention was phrased... I also intended for more clarity, guidance and love. All these aspects improved. To sum it up: All the small intentions (8) came true, the intentions involving my financial situation (3) have created some improvements, the big intentions (4) did not or not yet come true except for the one I didn’t intend for myself, intentions regarding weight loss (2) did not come true, intentions towards personal improvement (3) came true and the car is also fine. :) Thank you for this very interesting experiment! Personally, I learnt one thing in particular: To intend more consciously, for small and big things alike, and write it down, as one may be pleasantly surprised by how many intentions do come true. All the Best, Bernadette ***
    This was sent in by Florian: Ironically, the 21 day manifestation experiment felt like the manifestation of one of my intentions. 
    A few weeks before the original post was published on your blog, I talked to a friend of mine, who convinced me, to restart writing a daily intention list. So in a sense, I started the intention experiment earlier, and in a somewhat different form. Normaly I’d write down 5 Intentions every day. The internal result of this was, that with every day of writing, my vision/goals became more detailed and clearer. Sometimes I’d just write down the same intentions, some days I’d add new ones or modify them, because I realized, I forgot an important detail, or I found a way, to write the intention in a more elegant or meaningful way.
    “I’m a sought-after coach.”
      The result of this focus of attention was, that lots of people started getting really interested about what I had to say about personal development. During the past weeks I explained metaphysical concepts to lots of people. I also got asked by an acquaintance of mine to start a coaching project at my university.
    “I experience magical synchronicities every day, that show me, that I’m on the right track.”  
     I have this kind of meaningful synchronicities now 3-5 times per day. It could be that I think of a friend of mine, that I haven’t seen in a long time, and I run into him or her later that day, in a totally unexpected place. It also happens a lot that I talk about a topic and then meet people that are interested in the same topics. I recently met a girl for the first time, and I felt the urge to ask her, whether she likes a certain Japanese book author. It turns out she writes her thesis about this authors work! A couple of days ago, I sat together with the owner of a sportsclub that I frequent, and he talked about how he likes the work of C. G. Jung. Jung is the one who coined the term synchronicity! I immediately asked whether he believed in synchronicities and he confirmed that he believes in it.
    Another synchronicity was related to my intention “I live my life in the flow-state.” One synchronicity was, that there was an article published on the very same topic on the reality creation website a few days after I wrote down this intention. During the same time I sat in the library, and noticed, that the girl next to me read a book about the Flow state. In the next days, I was talking to a stranger that I just met, and he told me that he’s about to write his thesis about the flow state during sports competition. Besides those synchronicities I got the result of experiencing this state of effortless and joyful concentration a lot more in the past weeks.
    “I feel great energy, and high states of consciousness.” This intention attracted me to some resources that showed me very effective meditation techniques. I also experience random outburst of euphoria and light states of being more often now.
     “I have an easy time meeting beautiful girls”  This intention resulted in getting to know a guy better, that just got recently single and wanted to improve his dating skills. We managed to meet lots of people and inspire each other a lot, so that we in fact talked to a lot more girls then we had before. He also shared lots of stories from one of his friends who is very successful with dating women, something that inspired me even further.
    I also wrote down that I ace my final exams. Even though I was under a lot of time pressure, and learned for a substantially shorter period of time than my peers, I got 3 A’s.
    In retrospect I really liked the experience I made so far, and I don’t see it as a temporary experiment, but more as a lifestyle change. For the past 5 weeks I wrote down my intentions every morning for 15 minutes and I will continue to do so, simply to keep the momentum.
    I’d say roughly half of my intentions manifested, or showed clear signs of being on the way of full manifestation.
     
    I benefited from doing this intention list in numerous ways. First, there’s the obvious manifestation of stuff. But also getting clearer about my goals and being able to articulate them better is a very good side effect as well. The third, and most important thing for me was, that it strengthened my trust in the universe and my creative abilities. To solidify this experience, I also wrote down the statement “I am an effective reality creator” everyday.
     I received this email from Julie (scorpioviking (at) msn.com):Wanted to share a recent powerful reality creation with you.  I was listening to one of your podcasts about setting the table for two if you want a relationship and acting "as if."  I'm a singer and a songwriter, and I wanted another musician to come into my life to help me arrange and record my music.  I specifically was looking for a guitar player because I play the keyboard, so looking for someone to round out the music.  After hearing your podcast, I put an additional stool next to my keyboard and put a guitar pick right in the center of it.  Then I said to the universe, "this spot is for the right person to come into my life to help me with my music, ideally a guitar player, but I'm open to what is best at this time."  In THREE days, someone contacted me off the band website I was listed on.  Other people and bands had contacted me, but this guy was different.  His e-mail resonated with exactly what I was looking for. Interesting--he plays the drums, piano AND the guitar.  He's also been in the music industry for more than 30 years, and he has a number of recorded albums and many songs on iTunes (another goal of mine, to have my music there). On our first meeting, he brought me a CD of band he likes.    I took it home and took the lyrics off one of the songs, then re-recorded my own vocals over it and sent to him so he could hear my voice.  We had a few phone discussions and he said he had some extra gear at his house and asked if he could bring it over.  A few days later he brought everything I needed to have a small, high quality recording studio in my house--thousands of dollars of gear all without any cost to me.  More surprisingly, most of what he brought was new, in the box--he had actually purchased it for me.  I was so shocked that I cried, but then of course remembered I had asked for it, so took a moment to be very grateful.  I've since started recording my music--I send it to him and he ads the extra instrumentals and helps with the arrangements.  I've also recorded some vocals for his music.   An unexpected bonus--he has dozens of friends who are musicians, so if we get to a point where we want to play live, he'll help put a band together. Everything is just getting started, but this is 1000 times more than I ever imagined! Thanks for all of your techniques--this is only one of many extraordinary things that I've been able to create since being introduced to your work, but this was one of the fastest and best I've experienced.  All the best!  Julie *** This Experiment was put up in September 2014: The Physicalization Experiment
    "Physicalization" is the word I use to describe physically acting out a desired reality. It is derived from "Visualization" which is mentally acting out a desired reality. As told in my books I have used the method on countless successful manifestations. In my twenties, when I wanted to manifest a partner, I simply acted out having one. I would set the table for two, hold her hands, brush them through her hair, buy her perfume, have talks with her, kiss her goodnight - all before she had even entered my life! The key was to make it as real as possible before it was real. So when I kissed her goodnight, I actually extended a physical kiss into the pillow, as if the pillow were her head, gently holding the pillow as such. When you use this method you have to go through the motions like you would really be if it were real. My success rate with this method has been around 80%. Why does it work so well? Because you can only energetically attract what you are already experiencing.  You get more and more of what you already are. Many years before I gave seminars in front of groups, I pretend-acted doing so.  Many years before I had my first book published, I bought one of those empty scrap-books and put a title, my author name and a publishers name on it - acting as if that were my finished book. I have applied acting-as-if or "Physicalizing" on health-issues, romance-issues and career-issues. I haven't used the technique in a long time and will therefore conduct a 8-day experiment with it as follows: 1. I will choose something I want to create as reality 2. I will write down a few typical motions or actions that go along with already experiencing it 3. I will act out those motions for five to fifteen minutes a day for 5 days. 4. At the end of the 5 days, I will let go for three days and do nothing. Then I will take stock of what manifested as a result of my work. 5. Finally, I will write a report on my intended reality and manifested reality and publish it here. If you would like to join me in this experiment, you are very welcome to. In that case, do the same and report back on what happened. Please note that the actions in this technique are not actions-towards but actions-as-if. During this week you should try to reduce actions-towards the goal and increase actions-from the goal, things you would be doing if it were already achieved. If you participate, I`d appreciate if you send in your report regardless of whether the experiment failed or succeeded. This is needed to keep things REAL. Happy Reality Creating! ***
    This was one of the results of the Experiment: My goal was to make use of realitycreation.net (note: no longer in operation) a Domain that had been dormant for over three years. But I didn't know what to do with it. So my "physicalizing" consisted of logging into it and trying out different things every day. I tried out a shop, but that didn't inspire. Then I tried a chatroom, but it didn't work properly. Faithful to my "acting as if" I spent about 1 hour working on it every day, regardless. Normally, if I don't know what to do with a domain, I leave it alone. But because I was "physicalizing" I determined to act-out "creating a new website" everyday, trying all kinds of things. Then, on the fourth night of the Experiment, I had a vivid dream about making a Discussion Forum. It was as if the inspiration for it was "Downloaded" into my mind. I saw all sorts of members and screennames and activities. When I woke up, I knew that's what the Domain would be. But I had never built a discussion forum before and didn't know whether I had the skill. Being on the 5th day of Physicalizing, I simply pretended to have the skill and just starting making it, using plenty of tools that don't require coding knowledge. These were, of course, readily found and available. It was amazing how smoothly and naturally it all went, as if it were predestined. I had the site up within 2 days. This may seem like "no big deal" to an outside observer, but it is for me. Just a week ago I had a dormant domain and no clue what to do with it, no knowledge of forum building whatsoever (assuming its "complicated" and "difficult", which it isn't). Now, one week later it's a reality. In other words: Pretending to have a skill facilitates becoming skilled. I at first wanted to post some of other peoples Experiment results here, but I have in fact opened a thread for it in the Forum. Now you can post your results yourself here: Results of Reality Creation Experiments (note: This website and the link are no longer in operation). *** Here's an inspiring email I received the other day. I thought it would also be inspiring to readers of this site. Real names and locations have been removed (****) to protect the persons privacy. The person writing this, approached me for a "Skype Coaching" with fears of bankruptcy, being deported from the country she lived in and pondering suicide. A week after our session there was no more talk of suicide, there was this: Hi Fred, I would like to share with you some pretty amazing changes that I've experienced following our session. Right after the session, I felt peace and calm.  The strong inner turmoil I was feeling prior to the session lessened a lot. I felt okay. That alone is a big payoff. The following Monday I went to ***** for a meeting as I mentioned to you. I was anticipating conflict and hardship, but none of that happened. The meeting went smoothly and clearly, and I received a compliment that I am very beautiful. My feeling of confidence increased. The next day, I went to ***** to attend a very prestigious forum called ***** that fosters ***** *****. The forum has a program for young leaders with extraordinary potential.  I had applied to that program and a few days before our session, I received an acceptance letter from them and an invitation to attend the **** event. I went, while identifying as much as possible with my preferred self that you helped me embrace.  The speakers were heads of states, ambassadors, heads of world organizations (**** ***** ****). While my old self would have sit there feeling small and keeping quiet, then guilty for not making the best of the opportunity, my new self simply participated in the discussions when I felt I had something valuable to contribute, without forcing anything or trying to impress. Suddenly, I started attracting positive attention. Many dignitaries came to compliment me directly for the quality of my participation and even for my looks, and provided business cards. At the end of the event, the president of the forum, who has close relationships with many decision makers at the highest level around the world, came to announce that he will help me get ahead in my career.  I didn't even ask!  He also said out loud that my friend (another participant) and I were the stars of the event. Attached is a picture of me receiving my nomination from **** in ****. The smiling lady behind is the head of ****. And guess what? My nomination as a leader (among ****) was covered by all major ****, **** and **** news sites in ****. Suddenly I found myself being in the news! I can't tell you how proud my parents are.  I attached a newspaper article from a prominent **** daily paper for your reference. Today, I received an invitation from the **** embassy in **** to attend an event about women leaders. I could go on and on. You get the point. My reality is shifting to blessings beyond my wildest dreams. And while I haven't resolved yet the visa situation, I feel confident that the right circumstances are unfolding. I will keep you posted! I will forever be grateful to you for shining your light and love over me so that I shift my self-image, and hence experience the wonderful reality that results from a new identity. Thank you thank you thank you! *** This Experiment was put up in August 2015: The Retro-Reality-Creation Experiment Can you change the past by thinking differently of or about it? And does this change your present time circumstances? We all do this anyway to some extent. Depending on our mood we emphasize either good or bad memories or put some "spin" on those memories to make them more emotional. Negatively inclined people exaggerate their bad memories, positive people exaggerate their good memories. But what about taking this one step further and changing your memories altogether? What if our present time reality is much more rooted in what we imagined it to be, than we think? In my book “Parallel Universes of Self” I say you can do that with positive effects and I call it “Retro Reality Creation”. If you think the idea is crazy, consider the following news article: Science Experiment shows that what happens in the future, determines the past Starting today I will experiment with this idea a little more deeply. You see, it is such an unusual idea that not even I (who teaches this stuff) use it frequently. Every evening for the next 5 days I will review the events of the day. If there was an event that was not to my liking or somehow not ideal, I will “rewrite” or "revise" it with my Imagination. For instance, if I received a phone call I didn’t like, I will re-hear that phone call and have the person speak the words I prefer. If there was a behaviour of mine that was less than joyful or loving, I will imagine myself behave differently. If there was some complaint about something, I will imagine appreciation instead. I will mostly do this mentally, sometimes I may do it in writing. At the end of the 5 days I will wait another 3 days before writing a report on what happened and then publishing it here. I will note whether the act of changing my thoughts about the past appeared to change what happens in the ongoing present and whether my overall daily life improved significantly. I invite you, dear reader, to participate in this Experiment too. The more people experiment and share their reports, the more awareness we can gain on the subject. Go ahead and take some time every day to review your day and then use your Imagination to revise various events to your liking. Do so consistently for 5 days. Write your report on the 8th day and send it to me, using the "Contact" form at the side of this website. I wish you a lot of fun and amazing experiences! Fred Dodson *** What follows are reader reports on the Retro-Reality-Creation Experiment Hello Fred I did the experiment and I invited my friends on instagram to join me Some of us had amazing results. The first day I did it I had a situation at work that they were asking me to make a course. I wanted to postpone it but they refused. After I did the technique they contact me and I asked again and they said its ok and I can postpone though what happened was different from the scenario that I visualized the night before. One of my friends was so disappointed because she didn't get any results Some didn't get results but were happy to participate. One of them said that after she did it she had a problem solved and she was so thankful.
    One of them said that she had been told that her daughter's teacher is out of country
    And that she won't come back until the end of the month.
    And her daughter is having an exam next week.
    She did the technique before she slept and the next day she received a message that the teacher is coming back this week.
    Another one said that she had bigggggg issues with her in laws for 6 years.
    She had been attending courses and trying exercises for 4 years
    Like Forgiveness techniques and Hypnotherapy. 
    And she has been waiting for a result.
    She was trying to solve the problem.
    But after she saw your technique she imagined her mother in law apologizing to her then she fell asleep.
    She woke up on Friday and went to her in laws though she hadn't seen them for years.
    And her mother in law came and hugged her and told her the past is the past.
    Just like that.
    We had many other stories So thank u so much looking forward to seeing u in Italy Samah *** Hi Fred, I did the technique a little different. Most of my work is answering emails. So at the end of every day I rewrote the emails I didn't like in the way I would like them and sent them to myself. In the first days I noticed that I felt much better going home. Nothing much seemed to change but I felt good. In the previous week I had gone home feeling kind of heavy. But in the last three days I realize there is not a single negative email in my inbox. And I get about 35 emails every day! So as I see it, as long as I was expecting troubled emails, troubled emails came. Once I changed my expectation with the exercise, the quality of emails changed. I want to continue this practice. Thanks a lot! Felix ***
    "So I had quit my old job and have been waiting for this guy to come back to Dubai and interview me for a job I felt much more excited for. He was 2 weeks late. I knew I could get another job if I wanted to, but I liked this one most and when you're sure about something plan b is plan a, so I acted as if he already told me that the job is mine and didn't even look at employment websites. I wrote an essay of a few paragraphs describing how I got the job as if it was a memory and I did the pure to align with the version that already has that job. The very next day he asked me to meet him and I got the job. Just like that. After ( i have been waiting for almost 3 weeks).
     
    I knew I could find a job easily I just wanted a specific thing and I also didn't want to spend time unemployed. Happened perfectly. 
     
    Also I was worried cause I had to give my laptop back. Luckily there's a student discount that allowed me to buy the newest MacBook in the same day I turned in the old one. 
     
    I'd like to play more with it and send you my results.
    All the love.

    Hi Fred, you can share this if you want. A couple of weeks ago one of my main clients dropped out of a project with us. Bad words were exchanged on phone, he hung up on me and soon I received the cancellation by mail. This is a client I have invested a lot of time and money into and I was sitting around wondering how I could get him back on board. I hadn't read your website in quite some time but its still in my bookmarks. I clicked on it and discovered the retro imagination experiment. I closed my eyes and remembered the whole phone call with him albeit as I wanted it to be. In my mind I heard him praising our work and he was eager for more. I replayed that a couple times. Then I forgot about it and went home. On the next day I sent the client an email offering improved terms. He accepted. Of course it could be easy to say that he'd have accepted even without your technique, but using it put me in the right frame of mind to make him a new offer (if nothing else). Also, before using it he sounded really angry and after using it he sounded friendly and polite. I hope this Feedback helps.

Leap of Faith Faith means to believe in the unseen. Faith develops your mental powers. If you only believe in what you already see and have evidence for, no such development of your power occurs.  Getting the things you want in life often requires a leap of faith, an extending of trust before you have evidence that your trust will pay off. You can make your dreams come true...that's not a fairy tale. The fairy tale is to think you can make them come true without taking a leap or while staying in your convenient, comfortable, safe situation.   Humans behave much like the fleas in this experiment (see video above). The fleas were able to jump higher. After only three days of conditioning them with a lid, they no longer jumped higher even after the lid was removed. They had now linked jumping higher to great pain and staying low to well-being. People tell us "be reasonable", "stay safe", "you will be disappointed", "keep your expectations low", "the fact that I failed before, is a sign I should not try again". But such ideas do not come from confidence or success. Such inner voices come from fear, not from the soul. A "sign" that affirms your limitations, is not a "sign" you ought to listen to. If the fleas were humans they would be telling others the same: "Don't jump up there. It's painful. You`ll see for yourself. You`ll be just as disappointed as I was". According to the experiment, the fleas even taught their offspring not to jump higher. Fleas who had never been in the jar, on the other hand, all jumped higher than them. What would it take to make the fleas jump higher again? How could you convince them that there is no more lid as there was in past generations? It would take plenty of reeducation. Perhaps if the situation inside the jar became too painful, they would voluntarily ascend higher. Maybe holding a little fire under their butts would make them jump. Perhaps if the stories about life outside the jar became intensely alluring, they would find the strength to jump higher. But ultimately, the choice to explore what is beyond convenience, must come from them. When are you going to take the next leap in your life? Are you going to wait until you have no more fear, until it seems safe to move? Well, then that's not a leap. Courage is not the absence of fear, it is moving forward in spite of fear. Trust is not the absence of doubt, it's moving forward in spite of doubt. If you wish to transcend fear and doubt, move forward in Courage. Your future is not determined by your Genes, Astrology or your Education, it is only determined by you...now. The intentions you keep in your heart, with belief or faith, all manifest sooner or later. Sometimes they manifest sooner. And sometimes they defy the laws of physics and statistics. Do all manifestations require a leap of faith? No. The more skilled at faith you become, the smaller the leap required. Then merely "holding an intention" is enough. I experience this every few days. For example, just a few days ago I was in Jordan and the seminar-organizer was looking for someone to translate my seminar. "I prefer to have a translator who knows my books" I said. "I`m sorry, but we didn't find anyone like that. So we got a professional translator instead" the organizer said. Inwardly, I did not react to the organizers comment that "it's not possible". The "professional translator, supposedly randomly chosen out of a pool of professionals, turned out to be a reader of my books! How strange is that? "Oh, what a coincidence!" some said. I think not. "Keeping Intentions in your Heart" is not just a saying. I literally mean that you should feel them in your heart. I do not mean the physical heart area, but specifically your chest - which is where the "spiritual heart" (heart-chakra) is located. Feeling intentions in your head or mind is fine, but if you can also bring them closer to your heart, their manifestation is more certain. And what if you can't feel them in your heart? Well, then maybe they are not worth pursuing. When you take a leap of faith you do so with a brave heart. There may be still a little trepidation or uncertainty, but you move forward anyway, as-if you believed that what you want will most likely come true. If what you really want were to come true in just a few weeks, what kind of arrangements would you make? Well, start making them! Live your life as if all that you really want is on its way to you. And then it is on its way to you. leap of faith trust How to program your subconscious to reach goals for you Do you have to do it all yourself or can you automate the process of goal-achievement? You are not a computer (you are consciousness), but you have one. You could roughly be categorized into three parts: Higher Self Conscious Mind Subconscious Mind Your sub-conscious mind operates similar to a computer that can be programmed. You can program it to run tasks for you. You can program it to reach something known (a goal) or find out something unknown (an answer). The comparison to a car GPS-Navigation-System is quite accurate. The GPS nav is a self-correcting mechanism. You program it with a target only once and from there on it keeps checking its position in regards to the goal. When you are off course it provides warnings and ways to get back on course. And it can also give you answers to unknowns. For that you simply type in what you are looking for and it will search what matches your input from nearby possibilities. If I am looking for a hotel, I type in Hotel and it will show me a list of options. You can do the same thing with your subconscious mind when you need solutions or answers. I recently, literally used my subconscious as my GPS. I was on foot, had left my smartphone at home and was not sure how to get to my destination. So I held my final destination in mind, said "take me there please", let go and then walked on by intuition. I did not ask how I might get there or when, I just said "take me there".  Through various streets and a few zig-zags , I did reach the destination, 2 miles away. My subconscious was using a mix of distant memory (I had been in the city many years before) and intuition. If I had the "hunch" to go one way, I went that way. It was an interesting walk. I use this innate ability for many things. I was at the post office recently with a huge gift-package to be sent to relatives. Again I had left my smartphone at home but had forgotten that that is where I had saved the address for the package to be sent to. I searched my (conscious) mind for the address but just couldnt remember it. So I tasked my subconscious with finding it because I didn't want to go all the way back home to get the address. I briefly visualized knowing the address and sending off the package, then I let go.  I took the package across the street for a cup of coffee. About 10 minutes later the address and the zip-code simply "popped into my mind". It was the subconscious sending the correct data to the conscious mind. I quickly wrote both down before they might disappear back into the subconscious. Sometimes when I write articles I don't publish them immediately, but  instead "sleep over them" one or several nights. Why? Because both my subconscious and higher consciousness have additional information I am not consciously aware of while writing. By focusing on the article I am programming my subconscious with "I want information on this". Then I let go and often, when I wake up the next morning, new information on the subject is there...delivered straight to the doorstep of my conscious mind. These are things I had forgotten or things I never knew. Some of the information is so unusual that I use my conscious mind to go verify its accuracy before publishing. And then, if the article has a good vibe to it, I publish it (if it does not have a certain feel to it, I delete it). You get answers by simply asking, just as your nav-system gives you answers by simply typing in what you are looking for. And if what you are looking for does not exist in your vicinity, the nav-system gives you no answers. If you type "shopping mall" into it and there is none nearby, there will be no results. You then have to go online and Google it. Google is to a GPS what Higher  Self is to your Subconscious. It has an even wider scope. A key to using this correctly is of course to "know what to look for". If your search-terms are no good then the results won't be of any value. "Knowing what to look for" is the result of having a lot of experience in the field and also some intelligence. So if you program your subconscious with the question "Why am I fat?", it will deliver the appropriate answers. But a more intelligent question would be "How can I look athletic?". The search-results will be much more pleasing, both with Google and with your Subconscious. Even smarter is the programming question "How can I look athletic and have fun with it?". But if no answers are nearby (in the vicinity of your energy-field) you may not get answers to that one unless you address Higher Self (Google) instead of the Subconscious (car-navigation). Common blocks to your inner-nav is your constant interference, needing to do everything yourself, typing in contradictory targets, programming too many targets at once and your own biases. These derive from worry.  Once you type the destinationyou can sit back and let it take you there, without worries. Worry occurs when you start doubting the nav. If the nav is broken, your worry is well-founded. But if it's intact your worry only slows down the process because you keep re-programming it. Just like a self-directing torpedo, the navigation system reaches its goal by moving forward, making mistakes and self-correcting them. Negative feedback provides it with the means for self-correction. Hence, negative emotions and events are not items to "get rid of" or "ignore" but merely your navigation-system self-correcting in accordance with the goal you programmed. So "fear" or "worry" simply show that you have turned the wrong way and now the navigation is saying "please make a u-turn and follow the other road". As such, negative-feedback is immensely helpful. Then, once you feel right again, you know you are back on the path you have programmed. Here's something weird: If you program a negative or non-life-affirming goal, then positive things will not feel good and negative things will feel good. Good and Bad feelings are merely your inner GPS showing you whether you are on track or not. So if you have an inner death-wish for example, then actvities such as smoking, cutting your wrists or shooting up a bunch of helpless villagers will feel good. So there are people walking around that are  "reversed". What makes others feel bad, makes them feel good. This is because of  the goals they have programmed their subconscious with. But why would anyone program negative goals to begin with? It's caused by contracted awareness (which is, in turn, caused by lack of love and limited imagination). Contracted awareness does not see that many options. So it might see Option 1 (negative) and Option 2 (even more negative) and conclude: Option 1 is positive. And to contracted awareness it appears that way because they only see 1 and 2. Let's say option 1 is to steal money from someone and Option 2 is to die of starvation. If you see only those two options, then Option 1 appears as a positive act that will help you eat and survive. The more imagination someone has, the more options are seen, the more options are seen, the better choices one can make. The better choices one makes, the nicer reality one creates. The nicer reality one creates, the nicer the world becomes. If you do not think that the subconscious effortlessly regulates your entire life, consider just one simple act, the act of picking up a pen. The act of doing so requires many hundreds of subconscious and automatic actions involving the movement of your triceps, your shoulder muscles, your bones, your hands and fingers. You are not consciously moving all of these body parts. Nor are you consciously calculating just how much muscle contraction, speed and force are required to pick up the pen. Instead you merely intend the end-state "Pick up the pen". The subconscious does all the rest. From this you can see how important all of these intention and visualization practices really are. They are telling the subconscious how to behave. Now when a little baby picks up a pen you can still see how the process is not yet automatic and habituated. It is still learning the right moves it has to make to successfully pick up a pen. Much effort goes into it. But as an adult, the process is completely automatic...and completely effortless. If you just began learning to drive a car you will notice that as long as the driving is not automated you will be over-correcting, over-careful and drive too slow. In such a worried state you are also more prone to accidents. But the more habituated it becomes, the safer you feel until you can drive the streets without worry (however, on the other side you might go into over-confidence and the resulting loss of awareness, which isn't ideal either). The same applies not only to small things such as pens but to everything in life. Every goal you program yourself with takes you on a trial-and-error process to greater and greater habituation and competence. No great scientist, artist or entrepreneur uses only the conscious mind to move forward. All patterns of failure and success are merely habits. Taking your GPS-navigation as an example, you now know exactly what to do. You program your target. That means you begin with the end in mind. If you wish to live in a house at the lake, you must pretend falling asleep and waking up there. For  how long? Until it manifests. Or do you have to visualize it only once? Well, that depends. If you type in your goal only once, the nav will take you there. But if in the meantime you program a bunch of other stuff, you will have to re-program the goal. If you want to make absolutely failsafe sure, then you re-program (visualize) every single day. That's more arduous and also takes more energy (using up the navs battery-life), but it guarantees arrival. Or you visualize only once and trust. But that only works if your inner channels are fairly free and you don't program yourself with junk on a regular basis. An example: I visualized this really nice house two months ago (and it manifested...I reported on it a few articles back). After one visualization session, I went to watch an episode of "The Walking Dead" (yes, I too expose myself to negative-energy for entertainment purposes). After watching the episode, I could feel that my entire "light energy" from visualizing was wiped away. So I had to re-program it and did so the next day. Once you have programmed the goal, what's the next step? Well, actually there is none. There is only one step: Program the goal. Once you have programmed a GPS-navigator you sit back and relax, right? You realize there might be mistakes and detours and road-blocks along the way (or none at all), but that doesn't matter because you have already programmed the goal and it will correct the course for you. If you have multiple goals then the nav stores these as "Via Points", points you stop at on the way to your final destination. Your subconscious can handle a number of via-points, but don't type in too many because it renders the journey unecessarily complicated. Or, if you are going to type in more than five, then at least let those goals be easily compatible. If I am in Toledo and want to go to New York City, then via-points such as Erie, Buffalo, Syracuse and Albany are not a problem. You can have as many goals as you like if they are aligned with the big goal. But if you program Seattle and NYC at the same time, you won't be going anywhere soon. Speaking practically, its good to only have one to three "over-arching" goals, general and big themes to which all lesser goals must align. For instance, I only have ONE professional goal and that is "to constantly improve while teaching reality creation to many people". Thats the overall context from which I live. So if I now state the small goal of "making a website on black/white nude photography of the 1920s" or "selling dog food", my nav-system will give me a strange feeling, indicating that this goal is not in alignment with my overall goal. But if I make a website dealing with "prosperity consciousness", my nav-system will give me a good feeling or a "no problem" because its aligned with the overall vision. So to release that "strange feeling" I`d either have to let go of my overall vision so that I can pursue dog food and nude photography, or release those goals or create a scenario in which they are no contradiction. For example, teaching "prosperity consciousness" and "spiritual consciousness" might be a contradiction for some people (so they "feel bad" when reading my work), but in my own imagination they are not (hence I "feel good" about it and can do both. A scene of the end-result, imagined with intensity and commitment and a subsequent "acting in confidence that the goal will be reached" - that's how you program your inner navigation-system. The closer you get tot he goal, the more efficient the nav-system becomes. If you are applying willpower to achieve your goal, you are misapplying willpower. Willpower should be applied to program the goal, not to reach it. The reaching happens effortlessly, all by itself if you program it correctly. The fact that people are very easy to program is both fortunate and unfortunate. It is fortunate because you can re-create your entire life in just a few minutes of visualizing. It is unfortunate because those not aware of these things can easily be led to believe and act upon anything at all. If a hypnotist tells a susceptible person "you can no longer walk", that person will no longer be able to walk. If the hypnotist says "it is 115 degrees", the subject will start sweating, regardless of objective temperature. If he says "you are in the arctic" the subject will start freezing, regardless of objective temperature. The hypnotic effects of mass-media still hold sway over much of the population in the world. So anyone who is teaching reality creation, visualization, intention, nlp, meditation or even hypnosis is actually helping de-hypnotize the world as a whole. Vibration Density and Reality Creation Look at the Image below before reading. Intuition and Inspiration come from the Spiritual Plane. Identity and Thoughts come from the Mental Plane. Emotions come from the Astral Plane. Your thoughts and emotions can be further solidified through sound or speaking and then even further through actions. Words and actions condense spiritual energy into solid form. Another good analogy for this is in steam, water and ice which are all of the same substance but manifesting in different density. In this sense, steam is spirit, denser steam is thought, water is emotion, and ice is body. In order to dissolve an existing reality it has to be melted with warmth (love) and brought back from ice to water, where it can flow again. If the love intensifies it turns to heat and the water dissipates and turns to steam...the heavy issue disappears. To create a not-yet existing reality, a thought (steam) must become more dense and turn into emotion (water) and then further solidified through words (denser water) and actions (ice water) to finally become ice (physical reality). The ice-analogy is not perfect here, because in case of creation the heat (love) actually helps good things manifest (while it helps bad things disappear). That is the process of manifestation. vibrations and consciousness   "Light, Colour, Heat and Sound" help a mere thought solidify. So when you are imagining something, a dream to come true, you add light, color, love (which is a kind of warmth or, when very intense, heat) and later sound (by verbalizing what was imagined) and even later action, what you imagined starts to become solid so that you can see it manifesting around you. Sometimes a thought first has to be made dense (specific, concrete) enough before it will turn into a stable emotional state which in turn makes it easier to visualize (light and color) and to verbalize (sound).Vice-versa, if you take a negative thought and you take the light and color out of it, so that it's just a dull two-dimensional black and white image and then you also take the emotional attachment out of it (through releasing), it can go back to its pre-created form. From this you understand why "Imagining" and "Releasing" are actually the only two things that need to be taught to a human being. And in fact, all of the thousands of "methods" out there that relate to "self-improvment", "healing", "energy work", "belief work", "transformation", "therapy", "nlp", "law of attraction" etc. are only variations on "Imagining" and "Releasing", variations on making something denser or less dense. People tell me of all these fancy methods with special labels and names, but when I examine them, they all go back to either imagining (creating) or releasing (de-creating). To give you a practical experience of this, take some bothersome thought you would like to get rid of. Now run the thought. (By "run" the thought I mean play it in the theater of your mind). Now run it again. Run it a few more times. And run it some more. What you are doing here is twofold: You are creating it deliberately (instead of having it come up automatically) and you are also de-juicing it, taking out the emotion. It gets boring if you keep running it.  Now having run the movie a few times, make it a "black/white movie". Take out the color and light. And also let go of trying to change, get rid of it or keep it. This removes emotional attachment. Release your attention from it on the out-breathe, allow it to become vague and unimportant, uninteresting, devoid of relevance. You have  just completed a releasing session. Next, take a thought that feels really good to you. Run it in the theater of your mind. Identify with it, as if it were yours. Add color, light and imagined sound. Add appreciation. Notice who you are when you are experiencing it. Make the firm and solid intention to experience it. There you go. You just completed a creating session. Life responds to your vibrations. So life will present an opportunity within the next hours or days at most (until then, reduce turbulence in your mind so that you don't send out too many contradicting energies). Then, if you still want to manifest it, you act upon the opportunity that was delivered to your doorstep. If there is little attachment, manifestation can be rather rapid. The doorbell of my house has a rather annoying shrill ring to it. I have considered changing it for years but have never followed through. Because I live right in downtown, there are a lot of uninvited people ringing it - postal services dropping off packages for absent neighbors, newspaper carriers, people wanting donations for some cause, etc. So yesterday I thought "Wouldn't it be nice if it just stopped ringing?". Today I missed an important appointment with a visitor because my doorbell stopped working for the first time ever.But I must admit, the silence is wonderful. I`ll take my time exchanging the doorbell. Because there was no attachment, there was no obstruction in the thought traveling down the line (see image above) to solid reality. Non-attachment means "creating from the spiritual plane". That plane being very powerful, a thought rebounds quickly and often there isn't even a need for repetition, light, color, sound, action. Attachment means you are "creating from the astral plane". That's a slower-vibration and there's a lot of Ego mixed in with it, and it does require extra effort (light, sound, word, action) to manifest. So to repeat the main point: You can either release an old reality or imagine (and thereby create) a new one. Sometimes releasing the old automatically leads to new ones being created. Some people live "in a released state" all the time, without creating anything at all. They let life take care of itself. This is the easiest path, the "path of least resistance". It assumes that your Higher Self already has a life laid-out for you that is good for you and that whatever happens is part of the process your soul needs to go through. By relaxing and removing inner blocks, you intuitively know what to do from moment to moment. The Imagining or Creating method can be split into two different approaches. One could be called the "Willpower and Repetition" approach, the other could be called the "Energy Matching" approach. With the "Willpower" approach you define a goal and move through many blocks and resistances to come out “on the other side” and reach the goal. This method is based on focus, persistence and being willing to embrace problems and difficulties not as blocks but as part of the path to the goal. It is understood that you go through a number of resistances until you reach it. “The way through is the way out”. This is a linear path that looks something like this: reality creation willpower It is understood that the rocks on a mountain do not become a hindrance unless it is your goal to climb that mountain. A good metaphor for this way of reaching a goal is physical workout or sports. You put in effort and more effort, moving through resistances but come out at the end not only feeling high but also experiencing real physical change. This method can be applied in thought, word and deed but I recommend all three. When you affirm, visualize or do something over and over again, you are applying this method. For more on this method see The Reality Creation Technique. With the "energy matching" method you occupy the viewpoint, identity, self-image or energy of someone who is already experiencing the preferred reality. It involves visualizing-as-if, speaking as-if, acting-as if something is already true. By becoming an energy-match you begin attracting like energies, coincidences, people and events into your life. The two methods may seem like a contradiction, but they really don't disturb each other. The mind is linear, the soul is whole. So the higher-self prefers "energy matching" and the mind prefers "willpower".  I recommend being proficient at both. You begin with energy matching, but if personal will is required, you are able to do that too. Reality is a Decision Prior to all of this is a Decision. The word "decision" comes from the same root word as "scissors" and refers to cutting. When you decide, you make a cut by going for one thing and not another. The word "doubt" comes from the latin "duo" and refers to "two". When you doubt it is because you are swaying back and forth between two things instead of deciding for one. Someone who has not decided has split their attention. Making a de-cision sometimes requires courage because it implies letting go of the old reality in favor of the new, which may entail leaving the comfort zone. The latin root of the word "courage" is "cor" which means "heart". Interestingly, both the Swedish and the German words for Poverty (Armod, Armut),  literally translate as "lack of courage". Everything you need to know about how reality works is hidden in plain sight within language. From the millions of options you have, you chose a reality you prefer and you make the firm Decision that that is your reality. Then you remain loyal to your decision no matter what counter-evidence, counter-voices and evidence-to-the-contrary comes up. 20 years ago I decided to be a well-known coach and author who travels all over the place to conduct workshops and thats precisely what I became. Strictly speaking I required no plan, no goal, no technique, no method, no vision. I was already a minor-level coach who worked for a coaching-institution a few weeks after I had made that decision. 5 years into the decision I wasn't making any big money yet, nor was I well-known. But that did not change the fact that I had made a decision for my life and stuck to it, despite all the people telling me I must be dreaming or that I probably "won't make it". Its not up to anyone else to decide what you can or cant do. Once you have decided, you can do it. 15 years from the decision I had achieved ALL the vocational ideas I had when I was younger. There is not a single part of it that has not come true. If you can make a firm decision on a specific item and stick with it, you have created a new reality. It matters not if it takes some time to manifest. All of your "where is it?", "when is it coming?", "how is it going to happen?" is wasted breathe. If you have made a decision, it is coming and period. You are responsible for your effort, not for the result. The result can manifest in many different ways and at many different times, thats not up to you. Whats up to you is to find out what you really want and then make a commitment. If you think there is something more mysterious to it you are mistaken. The seeking ends here. Daydreaming Daydreaming is a valid method of self-exploration, even if your schoolteachers asked you to stop it. Closing your eyes and gently getting lost in pleasant imagery or going to that soft place between waking and sleeping where the imagery comes up all by itself is good for a number of reasons (and if balanced by real-life action). You give yourself a break from looking at every day life. You become what you look at the most. So when something repeats itself over and over, there is a lesson to learn. Recurrence of certain events indicates that you have not changed your inner vibration or fundamental attitude and have been looking at external events to provide solutions. Daydreaming is a method of looking within and looking elsewhere so that something other than has been may be allowed to happen. Daydreaming also develops your creative faculties as well as helping you to get information from sources the everyday mind has no access to (from the subconscious or universal mind). All you need for it is a place to be alone a little, away from the noise and confusion of the world. Then, instead of deliberately visualizing something (which is a different method than daydreaming), simply see what comes up and where it takes you or start with a familiar scenario and see where that takes you. When daydreaming there are no rules or restraints. I would not go a month without a little daydream, even if my schedule is busy. In regards to the image above, daydreaming is an "astral activity" that creates emotions. Emotions are dense enough to effect your actions, whereas thoughts-only usually do not have that power. Deliberate Thought Where do these thousands of automatic thoughts a day come from? They come from an overwhelmed mind that is trying to grasp the universe. From birth onwards, the mind is stunned at all the input and works overtime to try to compare, categorize and make sense of it all. This is why sensory deprivation usually leads to a slowing down of the mind. Going on retreat now and then helps the mind calm down and make things orderly. You are able to generate and hold new thought-patterns. Even to long-time reality creators, this simple realization keeps coming as a surprise because it seems to be a habitual default to think on-automatic. Its as if thinking just happens and happens and happens and happens and thats that. But you can actually purposefully stop what you are doing, sit down, calm down and then generate a new thought that is completely different than the automatic pattern. Even if you have been thinking the same thing for many days, you can sit down, stop it and think something else about anything. And as simple as this sounds, its actually pretty amazing. You have many thousands of thoughts on automatic every day. I dont recommend trying to stop them, thats usually futile. But every now and then,you can interject your own, preferred thought. Your patterns of thought might take many forms. "I don't know what to do, I don't know what to do, I don't know what to do" could be one. So you first come to rest. Being restful is a good place from which to create new thought. And you could examine the repetitive machine saying "I don't know what do do, I don't know what to do, I don't know what to do". And as you become aware of it in a restful state, its energy-spin decreases. Now you can deliberately drop that idea and replace it with: "I have very good ideas of what to do". Or you could choose an even more awesome thought such as "Let me now express the divine idea in my mind, body and affairs". That thought pretty much covers anything, doesnt it? And because you are restful it will more likely "stick" than if your mind were in turbulence. Im still baffled how people write to me assuming that the thoughts they are communicating to me are something other than...mere thoughts! "Hello Fred, I don't know what to do, because...". They`ll write that as if its a real, objective fact rather than a mere thought. And once they have created "I don't know what to do" they will ask me "What should I do?". However, it may have been wiser to first release the limiting thought and replace it with a better one. Thats the benefit of writing down thoughts - you can view them from outside and see them as mere thoughts rather than fixed realities. What do Bruce Lee, Louis Hay, Quincy Jones and Chuck Norris have in common? "Well nothing at all!" you might say. But they do. They have mentioned that they use the following method of releasing negative thoughts: At the end of a day, write down the main negative thoughts you have had. Then burn the piece of paper. Then write a list of positive thoughts you choose for the next day. So this is yet another method of doing the same thing: Releasing or Imagining. There are only those two. Reality is not only fact-driven, it's perception driven It is a fact that flying airplanes is many times safer than riding on a train or a bus. And yet the post-9/11 security measures at airports are many times higher than on trains or a bus. Last time I took a train Cross-Continent, there was no security at all. Airports security measures are a nuisance to Millions of people every day. Every time I fly from Europe to the U.S. I am asked for my Passport at least 8 times on the trip. And even though I have an American Passport, I am quizzed, questioned and my snack is split open to see if there are any bombs in it.  Its a fact that there are thousands of ways a terrorist could bring down a building and preventing him to fly will not stop him. And its also interesting to note that security measures for airport staff - from the stewardess to the luggage handler - appear to be surprisingly lax in comparison. Did the airplane-cleaners go through all these numerous security checks before they entered the plane? Somehow I doubt it. I'd wager there are numerous people who could easily plant a bomb on a plane if they really wanted to. The point is that the reality of super-tight, paranoid and costly airport security is not based on facts, it is based on the perception of facts. Authorities perceive and believe that there is a threat and that these measures will prevent that threat and passengers accept being strip searched because they perceive that its necessary. But the facts are that a lot of time, money and emotional energy are being wasted without all of these measures actually "preventing" terrorism. Thus, to create reality for millions of people, no facts are required. I am not saying that there should be no security at all and that everybody should just walk into the plane right off the street (although that's the way it will be on an enlightened planet). Its the paranoid exaggeration of security - the hassling of Billions of innocent people out of fear of a few, that is somewhat problematic. At many flights to the U.S. I go through two baggage checks even though one would have been enough. What exactly are they hoping to find that was not found at the first baggage check? The amount of money this is costing on a daily basis is enormous. This loss is created by perception, not facts. The loss of the money is a fact, but it is generated by delusion. If the security and police forces were trained in intuition and face-reading they could smell and spot a suspicious person from miles away, without having to empty grannies suitcase. Image: You buy a Burger for what you perceive it is, not for what it really is.  perception vs reality Reality being created by beliefs rather than facts happens all the time. For a private coaching I recently visited a town where it rarely snows. A few snow flakes were falling that day and my host showed me how people were stocking up on food as if the end of the world had arrived. They also all started driving really carefully. And all that just because of a couple of flakes of snow that melted once they hit the ground! Stocking up on food and driving incredibly slowly was not necessary. These actions were not driven by facts, they were driven by perception and interpretation of the facts. Because the townspeople were not used to snow, they envisioned something different than me. Where I live, snow falls frequently and thickly and we still drive around in it even if its piling up to body-height at the side of the road. This applies to positive things too, of course. Peoples perception that it is Christmas time and that this time is all about giving and coziness, creates precisely that reality. So when someone comes along and says "but fact is, the whole nativity scene of Jesus took place in January" we ignore that person because his facts are a disturbance to our positive feeling. So what can you take away from this that is useful for your life? Well, in short: You can create positive emotions and real experiences by positively distorting your perception, and you can de-create negative realities by strictly sticking to the facts. So when a coachee tells me a negative story, I often say "stick only to the facts of what is really there, of what is really happening here and now please". If one sticks only to the facts of the here and now it is difficult to maintain negativity because negativity is often based on perception and past or future events, not on here-now facts. And when a coachee tells me a positive story, I often say "yes, go on, tell me more please" because I know that even if the story is not fully accurate or factual it will create a positive factual reality. Next two Images: In these examples, distorting your perception and ignoring the facts, will generate real positive outcomes. perception vs facts   perception_vs_fact   One coachee recently told me that he thinks a certain woman likes him. I could see that clearly she is not interested in him. But instead of telling him the facts immediately, I went along with the story for a little because it brightened his whole mood and outlook, it made him optimistic about the day. I could have said "You are kidding yourself". But who am I to burst his bubble? Bubble-bursting would only become necessary when his delusion starts producing negative results/facts. And then it turned out that he was so convinced that she liked him, that the woman started changing her views of him. And now they have started going out together! The lesson learned here is that sometimes its better to let someone believe something if their belief is strong and produces positive results. Cynics and Skeptics are only needed for negative realities. Reality is more perception-driven than fact-driven, driven by beliefs and emotions, not by whats really there. There are so many applications and usages of this knowledge I could write several books about it. From your choice of partner, to what you purchase at a store, to why you choose one life path over the other...none of this is primarily fact-driven but emotion-belief-perception driven. Thats why I teach changing emotions and beliefs. Because when those are changed, your perception changes. And when your perception changes, your factual reality changes. What you believe will come true if your belief is not too far away from your factual experience. Poll: Which Reality Creation Method works best for you? What works best? Probably a combination of a few. But in this poll you only get one vote for your favorite. To see overall results, cast your vote. Enjoy... [yop_poll id="2"] A comparison of Intention, Affirmation and Prayer Someone recently asked me what the difference between intentions, affirmations and prayers are. As far as I'm concerned there is not much of a difference in intent. All three aim to send out pulses-of-thought into the universe and receive back a response. All three involve a deliberate statement of intent, a deliberate concentration of mind. I'd say that what is described as "intention" and "affirmation" is nearly identical. I prefer to use the word "intention" because its a little stronger. Another word I sometimes use for thought-pulsing is "Invocation". Prayer is similar to Intention in that a deliberate request is sent out, with the idea of having life reflect it back. The difference is that Intention summons personal energy and will whereas Prayer summons divine will. Intention is "my will be done", prayer is "your will be done". The difference between the two is described in more detail in "The Reality Creation Technique". I have had great success with both methods but I guess that's because I am just a very believing person. The "naive/childlike expectancy" that these things work, plays a great part in them working. Intention directs attention to the thing intended. Prayer directs attention to the source and force that creates all things. While it is common practice among reality-creators to "let go and let God" or to "give things to the Universe", prayer should not be directed at a vague impersonal concept called "Universe" but at a personal being that deeply loves you and cares about you. The reference to "Universe" should be used when you are using personal will or intention as in "The Universe is manifesting it" or "This looks like a sign from the Universe". Neither should you be shy of requesting "mundane" things from Source. Your requests are a compliment to the abilities of Source. Direct your prayers to a personal God in accordance with your culture or idea of God. I know it is also common to direct prayers to devas, angels, higher-selves. This comes from the idea that God is too high to address and devas/angels are more likely to respond to us lowly humans. My view is that this only applies to mid-range levels of consciousness.At higher levels of consciousness you are higher-self so there is no need to pray to higher-self. Intentions/Affirmations should be used as long as things are flowing nicely and you feel fully responsible and in control of your destiny. As implied in this slide show, prayers are best used when you have reached the limits of your personal will. I say this so that people don't start giving away personal responsibility to higher ups. It were better someone does not pray at all than to start believing in the antiquated view that they are powerless and at the effect of the whims of some fear-inducing Overlord. It is important to see this The Most High as a parent-like Being that is happy to fulfill your wishes if they do not harm you. If you have children yourself, you know that you would be overjoyed to fulfill their wishes unless those wishes are known to you as harmful. If your child wants to play in water you bring it to water. If your child wants to jump off the roof you deny it that wish. This gives you a clue what to pray for: Things that, by all you can tell, are good for you and the people around you. Do not pray to influence others. So instead of saying "I want person X", say "Id like to meet the right person for me". Rather than praying for "A Million Dollars" pray for "the prosperity that is good for me" for example. You see, a Million Dollars may not be good for you at this time, may stint the growth of your soul. As a metaphysically educated and aware person you will always have everything you need and always be provided for. You can summon that which is rightly yours instead of trying to go for things that are not in alignment with your souls path. It is generally thought that you can only pray if you are religious or a member of some religion. That is not my experience. I have never been a member of any religion, nor do I attend church...and yet most of my prayers are answered. Why? Because I have a positive karmic bank account:-) Any human being can send thought-pulses into the sky and will receive something back that reflects the frequency they sent out. Whether you are stating an intention or saying a prayer, you can (but dont have to) emphasize it with physical gestures. Sometimes, when applying the reality-creation-technique I emphasize the spoken words with hand and finger pointings to demonstrate the firmness of my decision. With prayer there are traditionally two ways. One is to cross ones fingers, as shown in the first image, the other is to point the hands upwards as shown in the second image. The first one tends to confine the energy to the "God within" or God immanent, the other tends to shoot the thought-pulses upwards and outwards to God transcendent. I would say that crossing the fingers is more of the "intention/personal-will" type practice and pointing the hands upwards is more of an actual prayer-like practice. Pointing the fingers upwards tends to focus the energy a little more.                                               Intentions should be repeated over and over and over again, until they create a new state of mind, a shift in your physical state and a "belief that sticks". They are like mantras...the more you repeat them, the deeper the idea becomes part of who you are. Repetition is what is powerful on the earth-plane.  A prayer on the other hand, should not be repeated over and over. Why? Because the Source you are praying to is assumed to understand your wish immediately...even before you voice it. So it is best not to pray for something more than once or at the most twice a day and not more than five times altogether. After that let it be, let it go. The wording of a prayer does not so much matter, what matters is the intent behind it. One example of wording might look like this: "You are the most high, the creator of all worlds and you also created me. In humility, I ask for some guidance on __________. If it is your will, please allow _____________ to come to pass or direct me to something even better."  Whether you use intention, affirmation, invocation or prayer, it is good to think deliberately and send out those thoughts deliberately. Doing so means that you are not only some machine or automaton that randomly runs by itself but a deliberate co-maker of an ever expanding Universe. Keep your Attention on the End-Result Reality Creation is the process of identifying a burning desire you have and then pretending that it is already true by putting and keeping your attention on the desired end-result. You keep your attention on the end-result, thinking and acting as if your wish were already fulfilled, until it feels normal to you. At that point, you begin magnetically attracting events into your life that match the state you have entered into. That's all there is to it...identifying what you really want and then being persistent in "being there already", until it manifests. From this very simple basic technique, all other ideas can be derived. For example the idea that while reality creation might take some effort, it should not take too much effort. Why? Because "too much effort" assumes that your desire is not "already fulfilled". Or the idea that you should not have too many goals at once. Why? Because the more you identify with one reality, the more quickly it manifests. Or the idea that you should not resist negativity. Why? Because fighting against the negative redirects your attention from the desired end-result to something you don't want. Negativity should not be resisted, it should be renounced. Resisting the negative means giving it attention, renouncing the negative means giving it no attention at all. Reality Creation works like magic, but it's really just simple physics. Like energy attracts like energy. And only success attracts success. Nothing succeeds like success. Once you get the ball rolling, it gains a momentum of its own. All that is required of you is to put your attention in the right place, to train yourself to keep it at the preferred end-result without much distraction, doubt and worry and to keep contradictory ideas out of your field of consciousness as best you can. The best time to train your attention and to place it on preferred thoughts, preferred emotions and preferred ends is right after waking up in the morning or right before falling asleep at night. This is when your subconscious is most receptive. In programming your subconscious night after night, old programs that do not match your new reality will bubble up and eventually leave. Do not allow these old programs to draw you in or distract you. Acknowledge them, but shift your attention back to the desired results. Your attention is like a muscle that can be developed and as it grows stronger you will no longer be so easily distracted by the inconveniences of life. You will become an astonishingly powerful creator, even to a point where you can "undo" things that already happened. Three recent examples in which I "reversed" things that had seemingly already happened: I had this excruciating toothache a few days ago. Being on Business travels, I did not have the time to go to the dentist. So I simply went to sleep assuming that it was merely stress-related toothache and that it was already healing with my relaxation. The next morning the toothache was gone and it hasn't appeared since. By labeling it "stress-related" rather than "related to a decaying tooth" I mentally established my ability to heal it. And by assuming it was already healed, I gave my subconscious a new operating command. I received some bad news from a tax accountant. Since it wasn't the news I wanted to hear, I spent a few days re-writing the email he sent me. That is, I sent a "pretend email" to myself, containing the news I wanted to hear. After a few days of doing this, I was rummaging through old files of mine when just the document I needed fell into my lap. The document contained information I had completely forgotten about, but which would help me greatly with the tax issue involved. I forwarded the document to the tax accountant and he promptly responded with a positive email similar to the ones I had pretend-written. I have been having trouble acquiring a Business Visa for a certain country I have repeatedly been invited to for lectures. This time around I faced even greater troubles in that a visa was rejected entirely. Upon trying to email and call the Embassy and Visa Service center, no explanation was given. So I lie down and visualized the visa stamp in my passport several nights in a row. Then I went and tried again. But instead of visiting the local embassy I had a hunch to try the embassy of that country in New York City. So I flew to NYC and sure enough...I got my visa there. And not just for a couple of weeks, as in previous visas for that country, but five whole years! The bad situation had not only reversed but I had received much better than I even asked for. These are only a few recent examples. I could truly list thousands of examples in this year alone. I attribute everything I have ever achieved to a modification of my thoughts/attention/attitude. You close your eyes, relax and mentally-emotionally put yourself into the desired end-result until it feels natural, normal and effortless. When you open your eyes again, you might still be in your "old reality" with old circumstances and annoyances happening. The main discipline is to remain in your new attitude regardless of the evidence of your old reality. To repeat the new idea until it becomes deeply anchored in your body-mind. "What if the desire doesn't manifest?" many people ask. But even just asking that indicates that you are not firmly rooted in the new reality. Were you firmly rooted, you would not be looking for or waiting for it to manifest because, as far as you're concerned, it has already manifested. Keeping your faith means to believe in the unseen, regardless of the contrary evidence within the seen. When you put yourself into the reality of your desire already being manifest, notice where your attention goes. As long as you are properly aligned with your new reality, you`ll notice that your attention will be attracted to things that appear to confirm your new belief. If you believe yourself to be wildly successful, your attention will gravitate to one event after another that relate to that belief. And the more your attention becomes rooted there, the more and bigger successes you will notice. I often just sit down and take stock of my attention. I observe it. Where is my attention going? What thoughts does it stick to? Which thoughts keep repeating? What am I looking at and how am I looking? How rigid or soft is my attention? Just by sitting down in a private or public space and observing a little, you can easily tell whether you are currently aligned with the end-result or not. And if you aren't, if your attention is occupied with all kinds of trouble and worry, then sit there a while longer and relax. Then gradually shift your attention to preferred thoughts and ideas. Your attention is either drawn to things happening in the external world, in your immediate surroundings or it is drawn to thoughts of the internal world. As a reality creator you should know that it's better to not have your entire attention be dominated by things in the external world. I sat in a mall recently, sipping on a cup of coffee, feeling kind of overloaded and tired. Why? Because at the time, my attention was completely dominated by what was going on around me. And if what is going on around me were related to my desired end-result, that would be fine. But what was going on in my immediate surroundings had nothing at all to do with who I am and what I want in life. There was advertisement blasting from a nearby electronics shop, there was a couple arguing behind me and all kinds of other events unrelated to my true hearts desire. So I took the opportunity to simply re-align my attention to where it mattered. Being well-practiced in finding good-feeling thoughts, within just a few minutes I was feeling warm and energetic inside. The tiredness had gone. In other words, if you have some control over your attention, and don't let too much of external reality control you, you can pretty much direct your reality as you wish. It all begins with attention (which is why my Attention-Training Program is the most important product I have ever made). When you put your attention to the desired end-result over and over again, attention becomes habituated there and you begin accepting it as a fact at deeper levels. It's eventual manifestation becomes inevitable. Attention becomes more and more absorbed in the new reality and it seems more and more real. You begin feeling the mood and tone of that reality. You begin seeing evidence for it. You become magnetic to it. This is much different than merely fantasizing or wishing. When you are aligned with the final-result, it's not a fantasy or a wish but feels like a normal, everyday thing. Magic Creation Box One of the classic techniques of "the law of attraction" is called "The Magic Creation Box". You get a box, and you put pictures of all things you like, all things you prefer, all things good, all things nice-to-look-at, all things you'd like to attract into it. The idea of the exercise is that the mind has the tendency to focus on what it does not want and does not like and thereby attract more unwanted things. This technique conditions the mind to look at and think of things that are liked and wanted in order to attract more of those. I used the technique on and off when I was younger and frankly, it worked. It first worked emotionally in that it aligned my mindset to the good and beautiful, the abundant and pleasant, the nice and blissful, and it also worked in actuality in that many of the things I had put in the box (and often forgotten about) did manifest after days, weeks, months, years and sometimes even decades. When I was younger I was very luxury-minded, not quite as spiritually-minded as I am today (but the two realities of luxury and spirituality are not the contradiction many think it is). So the content of my private Box in my early twenties looked something like this: super abundance key                         spiritual trailblazers                       wealth consciousness                         magnetic wealth attraction                         make a dream come true               Natalie-Portman                         Kate-Winslet                 monica-bellucci           prosperity consciousness                         wealth consciousness attraction               luxury consciousness                         wealth attraction                                 Think these pictures times 300 and you have a good idea of what my Box looked like and what kind of realities I attracted. Sometimes I used a marker to write on top of the pictures what they indicate. For instance, Natalie Portman, Kate Winslet and Monica Belluci often featured as "These are the kinds of women I attract". I would write similar on top of the picture. When it came to what I wanted to look like in terms of body shape or style I often added pictures of men without the heads as to make it easier to envision my head. By the time I was 30 years old I had pretty much achieved everything I wanted in terms of money and women, so I began losing interest in it and my attention moved on to matters of higher realms and spiritual reality. But its only natural that, once you manifest something fully, your interest and attention begin to recede and new things capture it (unless you are addicted to and obsessed with something). Later on I exchanged the physical Box with a virtual folder on my computer titled "Magic Creation Box". That worked well too, but in retrospect the actual physical box worked better because the subconscious is more willing to believe something that is tangible. "Magic Creation Box" is well-known among reality-creators, but there were a few methods I developed to intensify the manifestation-effect of the technique. For example, if I wanted something specific, such as a nice car, I would focus exclusively on adding nice cars to the Box for a week or so, maybe ten, twenty or more a day. In addition I visualized and thought about them throughout the day, based on the axiom that you "attract into your life what you think of the most". Adding them to the Box of course makes them much easier to visualize because  all you have to do is remember some of what you cut out of a magazine and put into that Box. It does not matter that they were many different cars. You never attract what you specify visually, but what you radiate emotionally. So it would be a good "mid point" between all those cars I added. Once, after a week of intense car-adding I actually got a very expensive and very fancy car for free - as a gift from a happy Seminar participant. I know its hard to believe for some, but such is the power of playful, non-attached Imagination. The guy just gave me one of his cars. The car was used, but it must have still been worth around $70 000. He said to me "I learned so much in your Seminar. I`d like to give you one of my cars. How do you like that car parked out front?". Not knowing whether he is serious, I said "Sure, I`ll take it". He handed me the keys and said: "You could give me a ride to the airport". Today, many years later I don't even own a car due to my frequent international travel. But I will always remember that as one of my biggest reality-creation manifestations. Another surprising way to super-boost your results with this method is by wishing nice things for others. So you set up a creation box for someone you like or love and add all the good things you wish them. If thats health, for instance, you add all sorts of healthy-people-pictures. Wishing others well takes you out of the Ego-Zone into Universal-Consciousness-Zone, from where it is easier to manifest. There are other methods with which I intensified the effect of the "Magic Creation Box". Methods I myself devised. They cannot be taught in words, they have to be shown. Such manifestation-techniques are one of the main topics in the upcoming Reality Creation Course. The Dive The Dive Reality Creation for Parents and Children I am often asked about “parenting advice” from a reality-creation viewpoint. I haven’t given any up to now in writing, so here it goes. When you radiate good energy (joy, courage, love, etc.), you attract good things into your life. When you radiate bad energy (fear, anger, guilt, etc.) you attract bad things into your life. That’s the gist of reality creation. It therefore follows that, if you want to teach your children how reality creation works, you should not reward their bad energy (temper tantrums, pouting, shouting) and should reward their good energy (polite asking, calm, friendliness). Your reaction to bad energy should be reduced. You are not impressed by their shouting. In this way, you give them a good idea of what succeeds in life and what doesn’t. If you reward their bad energy, they will grow up to believe that if they act like a victim, they can get what they want. If you reward their good energy, they will grow up to believe that if they act like an adult, they get what they want. My parenting advice is as simple as that. But of course, in detail and daily life, such general advice may not always be that simple. What if your child refuses to eat for example, or insists on running into oncoming traffic? Well, those are the exceptions in which you can use a little force. It would be ideal never to use force and to always take the time and attention and love to explain things, but in the hustle and bustle of daily life that’s not always possible – especially if the parent does not have the time and attention (energy). From this you understand that “having energy” is actually – again! – the main factor. As with everything else in life, good parenting depends on your level of energy. If you rarely take time for yourself, you will also rarely take time for your partner or children. So it is a matter of energy-management. Moreover, if your own energy is good, this will rub off on your children and less effort, talking and doing will be required toward them. In other words, you could either waste a lot of energy trying to convince, control or overpower them, or you could simply radiate calm and confidence and they’d be much more likely to follow your lead. If you are getting frustrated that your child is not doing what you are saying, its not only because of the child, but because your own energy is not that convincing. And so you resort to force (overpowering) instead of true power (which comes from inner confidence). Children respond fairly well to carrot-stick methods (promising reward if they do what you say and punishment if they don’t do what you say). However, such methods should not be overdone. For example, some parents can be observed threatening to leave their children if they don’t do what they say. As you can imagine, such threats are the beginning of abandonment-fears. The carrot-stick method should, in my view, be applied lightly. So instead of “eat your food or I will leave you! You want me to leave?” it should be “You want to watch a cartoon later on? Yes? Alright, then eat your food”. What you will notice is that children respond to the vibration you make the offer in. If it is said with some excitement (about the cartoon), the child will also feel excited. But if it is said in frustration, the child will likely often not respond to the offer. Parents often ask me about teaching children reality creation directly. In early ages I recommend a more indirect style: Teach them how to use their Imagination. Endorse activities such as reading, drawing, painting, handcrafts and other things that allow their imaginations to run free. In later ages, you might teach them the concepts of visualizing (imagining things they like), praying, acting out things they like, hanging up pictures of goals they have, etc. But that should be done fairly gently. The reason is that some children tend to do the opposite of what their parents do. That’s often a part of maturing into adulthood. If you forcefully teach reality creation to them, chances are they won’t be interested, especially as they reach their teens. Even better than telling them what to think and do, is setting the right example yourself. In other words, if you are a good example of a reality creator, that will rub off on them and they will ask you for advice instead of you forcing it on them. If they ask about it, you can tell them all about how you created various things in your life. Children learn by copying their parents, so whatever standard you set, is what they will copy. Later, instead of copying you, they might oppose you. But even here, it is important to maintain your style and attitude (if it’s a good one) and not change yourself just because they don’t agree with who you are. This way their opposition will lessen. Finally, feel free to use reality creation to imagine your children the way you`d like them to be…happy and healthy. Don’t project too much worry and fear unto them. Most of parenting is not actually doing something to the children, but checking your own energy, checking what you put out. You are mostly responsible for your own energy, not for theirs. And the best thing you can do for them is providing a generally loving household and which they can explore and learn. Also keep in mind that, if you are generally in a good state, not all of their issues and errors are “your fault”. They are their own creative beings, responsible for their own experiences. Rather than becoming over-controlling of them, let them make their own experiences good and bad. Intervene less, appreciate more. Intervention is only necessary when there is an actual danger to their health or safety. There is not “one right way” to raise children. You will find that sometimes firmness/strictness works and sometimes softness/forgiveness works. As a conscious and intuitive human being, you’d go more by what the present moment requires than by supposed rules or principles read somewhere. Most parents, if they are calm and confident, know exactly what to do and say in any given situation. So become calm and confident and the rest will take care of itself…not only in regards to children. Begin at the End The other day a student told me: "When I have sex with my girlfriend, I think of other women in my Imagination. I can't get aroused otherwise". He assumed that because I teach "Imagination creates reality" that this is a good thing. But this is an example of the incorrect use of Imagination. The correct use of Imagination is to bring something you desire, into the here-and-now. The incorrect use of Imagination is to escape the here-and-now. It`s a subtle but profound difference. I told him:"The next time you have sex , don't leave the here-now, stay with yourself, with your body sense and what you are seeing, smelling, hearing right now". What then happens is that Imagination is not enforced, but comes naturally and effortlessly. It is "received". The idea is to bring joy into the now instead of assuming it is elsewhere (with another woman, at another time). Any sort of visualization or imagination that assumes that joy, love, energy and happiness is elsewhere or  in another time, is misapplied Imagination. Those kind of visualizations never manifest either because they are forever relegated to the future. Otherwise every fantasizing masturbator would constantly be manifesting their vivid imagery as reality ;-) This goes back to the "Begin with the End in Mind" principle that I have written about extensively. When you visualize what you want, begin with the end in mind, not with the means, not with the how or where or when.  A student recently made an intention list, beginning every intention with "When I have money, I will....". I told him to remove the "When I have money..." clause and instead begin with the end in mind. I have manifested hundreds of big things in my life without me personally paying for them. In my twenties, at one time, I had free food, car and accomodation from a company I worked for. In my 30s I've had dozens of vacations and first class plane trips, cars, houses and even fashion goods without spending a cent for them. Why? Because I don't hold the belief that money is the only way to get "things". Money is ONE way to get things, one of MANY. The default formula of the world is do-have-be. The reality creation formula is be-do-have. It delivers more rapid results. Examples of the old do-have-be paradigm: "I buy him a birthday gift. Then I get his approval. Then I am happy" "I work. Then I have money. Then I can feel calm" "I do sports. Then I have health. Then I can be happy" "I eat. Then I am satisfied" "I double check whether the often is off. Then there is no fire. Then I feel safe" "I meet her. Then we have sex. Then I am fulfilled". "I drink coffee. Then I am awake" The same examples in the new be-do-have paradigm: I am happy. Then I buy him a birthday gift (or not) I feel calm and rich. Then I work (or not) I am happy and healthy. Then I do sports (or not). I am satisfied. Then I eat (or not) I feel safe. Then maybe I check the oven (or not) I am fulfilled. Then I meet her. Then we have sex (or not) I am awake. Then I drink coffee (or not). You may or may not then eat, check the oven, have sex, do sports, work, buy him a birthday gift. The main point here is that you are coming-from a good state, not running after it. The good state is not dependent on doing and having. You can do or not do, have or not have and still be in a good state. What's more is that from the good state both your "doing" and "having" will become better. You will not only be "doing" less needless stuff, your choices of action will be much more refined. Doing  things will improve your state a little, but if you do not feel well beforehand, no amount of doing and having will make you feel happy. If you are happy beforehand, then the happiness is amplified and magnified through your doing and having. So this is no suggestion to stop doing and having but a way of enjoying your doing and having more because you are content with first being. Exercise: BE-DO-HAVE To learn this more deeply, make a list of things you do. Then note, why you do these things (the final emotional state you hope to gain from doing them) Write each state into a day on the calendar. That's the day you intend to "practice this state" regardless of doing or having and regardless of the circumstances. All of the things you want in life you don't really want unless they provide an improved emotional and physical state. But that state is available within. What you attract into your life is merely a mirror of your inner state. So why not fix that first? Exercise: NO RESPONSE and DELAYED RESPONSE This is an exercise to learn how to reduce your emotional dependency on external circumstances and people. Imagine a phone ringing loudly. Imagine yourself just sitting there calmly and not answering the phone. Let go of any pressure to have to answer it. Be OK with not answering it, feel alright about it. Imagine the phone ringing loudly again. Imagine a delayed response. So first you are sitting there and you don't respond. Then, make sure you feel good and ready. Then go to the phone and respond. Of course this little exercise is an analogy for all of life. An analogy for moving from reactive to non-reactive (which is a prerequisite for the creative mode). In life, we often "answer the phone a little too quickly". That is, we live our lives from conditioned responses and too easily respond to pressures, expectations from others, "deadlines" (what an inappropriate word) and it all culminates in a rat-race. Conscious Creation requires training yourself in NO RESPONSE and DELAYED RESPONSE. And by that I mean conscious-no-response, not apathetic no-response ;-) Some things will require your response, but even then you can delay your response so that it is made on your terms and from a state of poise. Exercise: BEGIN AT THE END Think of something you want. Now, first imagine already having it. And then, act/behave/speak like you already have it. The slight shift from "striving for" to "coming from" is what makes all the difference. It`s the shift from wanting to having, from yearning to being, from craving to resting, from linear time to present wholeness. Exercise SKILL LEARNING Never ending Improvement in the form of Skill Learning generates a lot of happiness because it brings your attention and creating-reality to the here-now instead of keeping you stuck in some unfulfilled yearning for the future. That's why I try to learn a new skill at least once a month. My new skill for this month was "How to make Almond Milk". I was puzzled how Milk could be made of Almonds, so I went online and learned it off of Youtube. So the exercise here is: What new skill could you learn this month? Do not copy mine, there are millions of things yet to learn. Identity Shifting A video on the art of Identity Shifting for reality creating. The map is not the territory A student of mine was a video-gaming, weed-smoking couch-potato who hadn't been in a relationship for 6 years and had difficulty with women. In fact, he hadn't been in a fulfilling relationship his entire life. He had read and continued to read countless books on NLP, Communication, Self-Improvement, law-of-attraction. In other words: He knew the map, not the territory. The only territory he was intimately familiar with was his sofa. Continuing to read books of this sort was akin to continuing to study maps of Australia without actually ever going there. You could name every last town, river, creek, hill but you wouldn't really know what any of it looks like, feels like, sounds like, tastes like. Sure...it's easier to keep studying the map on the comfort of your sofa...but of what use is it? Your felt sense of aliveness will be limited to a living room and computer screen. The "territory" in his case was women themselves. Women...with all their upsides and downsides, stories, emotions, looks, sounds, smells, tastes. As a coach, I need to get people away from maps and into territory quickly. As he had been out of territory for a long time, it wouldn't be enough to speak to just one woman. So I sent him to a "Speed Dating" event in his area. Speed-Dating is a staged session where you get to meet dozens of men and women with flirt-intent within a very short time. You have a few minutes to speak to each potential date before going to the next table and the next and the next. A full head-on plunge into territory! Going from speaking to zero women in years to a dozen within an hour. At first he was reluctant to go, naming the price of $50 Dollars as an excuse. I saw it as an excuse because someone who can afford coaching with me, can also afford $50 for an event. To me his reluctance was due to the fact that his comfort-zone was the sofa. It is so much easier to read about nice things at home than to get into all the sweaty, nervous, confused energy of such an event. But is the sofa more fun and more real? No! So I went ahead and paid his $50 entry fee. Now that excuse couldn't be used. Then he got excited about event, looking forward to it. It prompted him to go out and buy some new clothes. When he came home from his first speed-dating he confessed to me: “All the stuff I read didn't  amount to much when I was there”. And that's one of the most important things anyone, anywhere can learn. All of these maps don't amount to anything if you don't go explore the territory. A map should be used as an orientation guide for the territory, as a means to an end, not as an ends itself. Within a very short time he had experienced the entire scale of emotions, all of his shortcomings and strengths and all sorts of different types of women and all the aversion-attraction dynamics involved. And he was wiser, more practiced, more clear, more aware, more excited for it. He now knew what to work on and what he is good at, what type of women he prefers and what type he doesn't. And all of that within one condensed hour. In other words: You don't learn to swim by reading books! Which is why I read no more than one "self-improvement" book a year. Once you read a book, you apply it instead of reading the next one right away. Which is why I prefer training to lectures. Lectures are like someone else reading a book to you. But live training is to consciousness-expansion what speed-dating is to flirt. I received an email from another student a few days ago saying: "I have a goal to get a job at the university. I have read all of your material and also the books by Neville, because you mentioned that author on your Blog. I`d really like to manifest this, are there any other books you can recommend? Authors similar to you and Neville?" I was just sitting there wondering why he needed another map. He already owned several world maps and was asking for another. I responded telling him I do not have any further book recommendations and that he should apply what he has already read. My book "Parallel Universes" alone contains dozens of maps. The book is almost overkill, it contains more techniques anyone will ever need their entire lifetime. When people become too preoccupied with the map, they get lost in over-thinking things and try to grasp the world with information. The world cannot be understood with maps. You can prepare your journey with maps, but the maps won't go the path for you. You want to meet men or women? Then  go meet men or women! (you don't have to like all of them, even the ones you don't like are a valuable training exercise). You want to swim? Then go into the water. You want to be a singer? Then sing. You want to know how berries taste? Then eat them. You want to be a speaker? Then speak. You want to have success? Then demonstrate success. Maps are only useful for people who intend on going into the territory. Self-improvement books are only useful to those who intend on going into direct action and experience. How "evil" is attracted by fear-fueld Imagination There was a phase as a 12-year-old where I was fond of watching "scary movies". I was especially fascinated by horror-movies related to exorcism, demonic possession, psychiatry and the criminally insane. I fancied becoming a a bad-ass exorcist who would walk around expelling evil while winning the hearts of initially skeptical but very sexy bespectacled female psychiatrists, just like the movie-heroes. But I also noticed the following: After watching such movies, my young and impressionable mind would go wild with fear-fueled fantasies and things would really start "going bump in the night". I experienced the power of emotion-fueled Imagination. I would lie in bed (after those movies) and lights would flicker strangely, go off, turn on by themselves, scratches and bumps were heard in the walls, strange shadow-beings scurried around and more. What all this taught me is that as long as I focus on evil in a fear-fueled way, I began attracting it. And if I "got a grip" and stopped being fascinated by it, it would go away. This worked every time. Once, when my parents were gone, I popped in another movie of dubious vibe. When the movie ended it had become dark outside and I hadn't turned the lights on. One scene in the movie involved a girl trying to turn on a light and being prevented by a strangers hand. I sat in the dark living room petrified and afraid of turning on the lights, "sensing an evil presence" in the house. The movie credits had rolled off and I turned off the TV and all fell silent...except for a strange shuffling in the hallway! The mood of the house was suddenly ominous and sickish. So let's put this on pause for a moment and ask a question that has been bothering philosophers and theologians for centuries: That "evil presence" in the house...was it created by my imagination or was it real? My personal take on it is that neither the answer "It's only in your Imagination" nor "it's inherently real" are fully correct. In fact, the very question "Is it Imagination or is it Real?" completely ignores the relationship between Imagination and Reality. I believe a more correct answer is:

"Evil is real, but it's mostly attracted through your own fear-fueled Imagination"

The negative is an inherent part of this Universe, but whether you experience it or not, depends largely upon yourself. So if my parents came home and said "You're only Imagining things" or a materialist says "Such things are only fairy-tales", that's not entirely true. And if a religious or a paranoid person says "Yes, there is inherent evil in this world!" with the implication that anyone could fall victim to it at any time, that's not true either. Back to the situation: I felt an "evil presence" in the house and heard a "shuffling" in the hallway. I was on high-fear alert and furniture started cracking around me. My imagination + fear, which I had exposed myself to by "believing in the movie" was creating the reality of an "evil presence" in my house. I knew" for certain" that if I tried to go over and turn on the light, that this shadowy figure would reach out its hand from the hallway and tear me apart. But another part of me also knew that if I "changed my vibration", things would ease down again. I had been through this a few times before. It all started and ended with me and my emotional state. I remember telling myself that I must not become so fearful that this "evil presence" takes control of me to a point where I can no longer change my state. Imagination is so powerful that it can create a rock too heavy to lift. (But it's also powerful enough to then be able to lift it anyway, even if with outside assistance). So sitting there, the 12-year-old me "got a grip". With a sudden loud and clear voice I commanded the presence to leave (if my Imagination attracted it, my Imagination could also repel it). As I did so, several shivers went through my body (that special feeling when courage begins replacing fear). Even though I still felt a little trepidation, I marched confidently and firmly toward that light switch while repeating the command, and switched it on. My Imagination was then trying to tell me that the "evil presence" had receded to the darkness of my room  at the other side of the house. So I simply went from room to room, turning on the lights everywhere. Each "confrontation" with a room and subsequent light-switching created more courage and confidence. As there was still a lingering mini-fear of that "evil presence" lurking somewhere hidden in the house I started talking loudly, opening closets, singing and joking around, feeling much better already. The fear receded and I went to bed with a book. As my attention shifted to the (pleasant) story of the book, my emotional state improved. Then my parents came  home and asked why all the lights are on :-) Of course the presence of grown ups completely wiped out any fear that may have been left. I went to sleep in peace and upon waking up the next morning I had already forgotten about the whole thing. I then lost interest in watching horror-movies for some time. Back then I had also read a few books on Exorcism and I quit reading those too. I had experienced first hand that my interest in and fascination with evil, in combination with fear, attracted such. I have since come to believe that so-called "poltergeist phenomena", for example, can only be present if there is someone in the family with intense-imagination-combined-with-fear. I have also come to suspect that some of the books out there that purport to "expose evil" are themselves kind of evil. I`m not talking about objective journalism that seeks to expose wrong-doings in the world, but about such works that exaggerate threats way out of proportion; books that leave readers feeling like hapless victims of uncontrollable forces. You are not and never will be a complete victim. You always have some influence over what happens if you can regulate your emotional state. So if you are going to watch negative-vibe movies, then do so without emotional involvement. But wait...if there's no emotional involvement, the movies are no fun anymore, right? Alright then. Get a little involved but not to a point of manifesting the whole movie in your real life!:-) Fear-fueld-Imagination is powerful. It will attract all sorts of strangeness and illness. But joy-fueled Imagination is even more powerful. When I used my naive teenaged-mind to watch joyful movies, joyful things would happen. And they still do. That's why we look for really good stories. We are looking for stories that draw us in. And if they draw us in, we connect emotionally. And if we connect emotionally, we are able to manifest that in real life. First believe it, then you see it The following excerpts are taken from the book "Seedtime and Harvest" by Neville Goddard (1905-1972). They share daily-life experience on how imagination influences reality. "Just recently, I had the opportunity to observe the wonderful results of one who had the faith to believe what she did not see. A young woman asked me to meet her sister and her three-yearold nephew. He was a fine, healthy lad with clear blue eyes and an exceptionally fine unblemished skin. Then, she told me her story. At birth, the boy was perfect in every way save for a large, ugly birthmark covering one side of his face. Their doctor advised them that nothing could be done for this type of scar. Visits to many specialists only confirmed his statement. Hearing the verdict, the aunt set herself the task of proving he faith - that an assumption, though denied by the evidence of the senses, if persisted in, will harden into fact. Every time she thought of the baby, which was often, she saw, in her imagination, an eight- month-old baby with a perfect face - without any trace of a scar. This was not easy, but she knew that in this case, that was the gift of Abel which pleased God. She persisted in her faith - she believed what was not there to be seen. The result was that she visited her sister on the child's eight-month birthday and found him to have a perfect, unblemished skin with no trace of a birth- mark ever having been present.... This is the story of a couple living in Sacramento, California, who refused to accept the evidence of their senses, who refused to be robbed, in spite of a seeming loss. The wife had given her husband a very valuable wristwatch. The gift doubled its value because of the sentiment he attached to it. They had a little ritual with the watch. Every night as he removed the watch he gave it to her and she put it away in a special box in the bureau. Every morning she took the watch and gave it to him to put on. Neville Goddard’s Seedtime and Harvest One morning the watch was missing. They both remembered playing their usual parts the night before, therefore the watch was not lost or misplaced, but stolen. Then and there, they deter- mined not to accept the fact that it was really gone. They said to each other, "This is an opportunity to practice what we believe." They decided that, in their imagination, they would enact their customary ritual as though the watch were actually there. In his imagination, every night the husband took off the watch and gave it to his wife, while in her imagination she accepted the watch and carefully put it away. Every morning she removed the watch from its box and gave it to her husband and he, in turn, put it on. This they did faithfully for two weeks. After their fourteen-day vigil, a man went into the one and only jewelry store in Sacramento where the watch would be recognized. As he offered a gem for appraisal, the owner of the store noticed the wristwatch he was wearing. Under the pretext of needing a closer examination of the stone, he went into an inner office and called the police. After the police arrested the man, they found in his apartment over ten thousand dollars worth of stolen jewelry. In walking "by faith, not by sight", this couple attained their desire - the watch - and also aided many others in regaining what had seemed to be lost forever" "I think you will be interested in an instance of how a young woman shed the skin of resentment and put on a far different kind of skin. The parents of this woman had separated when she was six years old and she had lived with her mother. She rarely saw her father. But once a year he sent her a five dollar check for Christmas. Following her marriage, he did increase the Christmas gift to ten dollars. After one of my lectures, she was dwelling on my statement that man's suspicion of another is only a measure of his own deceitfulness, and she recognized that she had been harboring a Neville Goddard’s Seedtime and Harvest resentment towards her father for years. That night she resolved to let go her resentment and put a fond reaction in its place. In her imagination, she felt she was embracing her father in the warmest way. She did it over and over again until she caught the spirit of her imaginary act, and then she fell asleep in a very contented mood. The following day she happened to pass through the fur department of one of our large stores in California. For some time she had been toying with the idea of having a new fur scarf, but felt she could not afford it. This time her eye was caught by a stone marten scarf, and she picked it up and tired it on. After feeling it and seeing herself in it, reluctantly she took off the scarf and re- turned it to the salesman, telling herself she really could not afford it. As she was leaving the department, she stopped and thought, "Neville tells we can have whatever we desire if we will only capture the feeling of already having it." In her imagination, she put the scarf back on, felt the reality of it, and went about her shopping, all the while enjoying the imagined wearing of it. This young woman never associated these two imaginary acts. In fact, she had almost forgotten what she had done until, a few weeks later, on Mother's Day, the doorbell rang unexpectedly. There was her father. As she embraced him, she remembered her first imaginary action. As she opened the package he had brought her - the first gift in these many years - she remembered her second imaginary action, for the box contained a beautiful stone marten scarf" I won't back down Well I won't back down, No I won't back down. You can stand me up at the gates of hell, But I won't back down.  No I`ll stand my ground, won't  be turned around. And I`ll keep this world from draggin' me down, Gonna stand my ground and I won't back down.  - Tom Petty, I won't back down, 1989 Back in 1989 when the above song played on the radio it helped me stand up to the various pressures mounting on me. It lifted my spirits and helped me to "maintain my vibe". Maintaining an intention or goal is the essential key to reality creation. You can be, do or have anything you want in life if you can maintain your belief. I have demonstrated this in my life every time it really counted. Skeptics mock "the law of attraction" and "beliefs create reality" idea all the time. That is because they lack an in-depth understanding of the "maintain your vibe" concept. This in turn, is partially due to positive-thinking teachers misrepresenting the idea. Famous movies such as "The Secret" make it appear as if all you have to do is "think of something" and it will come true, as if by magic. Then someone half-heartedly might go test that idea as in "I`m going to visualize getting a parking spot". And when he doesn't get it, he`ll say "this stuff doesn't work, it's magical thinking" and become a "skeptic". Such exercises have nothing to do with reality-creating or having the courage of a lion. I teach that you can manifest your deepest, true hearts-desires that you imagine and feel so often and warmly that they go into your subconscious. I do not teach that you can suddenly acquire the magical ability to find something as mundane as a parking spot. Yes, sure, your "good vibe" does influence beneficial day-to-day events and that may include free roads and good parking spots. And yes, calling on the help of the "universe" or highest source may lead to "instant manifestations" in several cases. But that's not the rule. The rule is that your dedicated commitment within, eventually creates external results. One of the main components of this inner attitude is "not settling for less". Every time you settle for a lesser job, a lesser partner, a lesser circumstance, a lesser degree of health you are saying that you don't actually believe in or deserve the best life possible and should "lay low" and "not rock the boat". Throughout my life I have insisted on certain realities, committed myself to them and imagined, scripted and visualized them until they came true. Between intention and manifestation there may be times of doubt and loss of faith. These phases are indicated by feeling low, having fears or doubts and letting the several petty inconveniences of daily life get to you. But if you keep "I won't back down, I`ll stand my ground" in mind, none of this really bothers you much because you know that you will experience the next weeks according to what you feel today. If you feel worried and fearful today, guess what you`ll be attracting in the weeks to come? And if you feel joyous and at ease today, guess what you`ll be getting in the weeks to come? It is therefore of most importance to find that "good feeling place" on a daily basis. On the recent 10-day reality-creation-retreat, "finding the good feeling place" through inner imagination was the only exercise we did every single day, until it became a habit. Your feeling of ease and well-being and trust is the only thing that will protect you from the chaos of the world. One of the more popular exercises of the recent seminar was an exercise called "blind trust". In this exercise one person would close their eyes and promise to keep them closed. Another person would act as their guide that they could fully trust and guide them around. Once trust was built with simple blind walks, I asked the participants to expand the exercise to even deeper levels: Under the guidance of their partner, they ran, walked out on boardwalks over the lake, went up stairs and even crossed busy streets - all with eyes closed. One of the realizations was that trust is something that can be built over time. If they bumped into something or fell, it indicated a lack of trust or a lack of reliability of the partner. But could they, especially then, rebuild their trust? Or would they say "My confidence has been shaken and I can now no longer trust"? Unfortunately, in "real life" many choose the "I can no longer trust" option. Trust was discovered as a matter of choosing that which is reliable and slowly building ones confidence in oneself. The more you build trust, the better your life gets. You can do this exercise for yourself but make sure to move slowly and consciously as to stay safe. The most important question is: Can you trust yourself? Will you back down and crumble when the going gets a little tough, or will you maintain your intention? Will you take a "no" from life as a final rejection or will it spur you to continue focusing on your aim? To access the rest of this page, please log-in.
