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.”
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.

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. If this article inspired you to read some of his works, all the better. Beginners Luck 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".

Wayne GretzkyWayne 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.”
Will SmithAccording to Will Smith "Your thoughts and words have physical power"
Bill GatesBill Gates is rumored to have used the 19th Century reality creation book "The Master Key System" to practice visualization.
- Write down something you want (Define)
- Visualize it as real as your current surroundings (Focus)
- Feel enthusiasm and gratitude about having received (Activate)
- Trust as if it had already happened here and now (Release)
- Write down what you would be doing if it had already happened (Physicalize)
- Do these things (Physicalize)
These are results of the Visualization Experiment sent in by readers. This first one was sent in by Priya from Toronto:
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!!!)
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
- 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!
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 minutesObservation: a friend of mine speaks to me for the first time french (saying "Salut"), and I respond with a sentence in french and what amaze me is the accent speak sounds rather French. 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 trustingTechnique: Love + prayerObservation: Once I entered the placem all expectations and worries I had before I arrived, disappeared! Instead I had the attitude of joyIntention 6- I saw a man that I really dislike, his energy disturbs me, Now his energy makes me laugh enjoy life as if being in heaven! I would like to experience his awareness, be closer to him!

Dancing, relationship, expressing, releasing, drawing …. etcIt was a tremendous experience!Intention: 12- Staying Alert, Opening to a new awareness in life (Experience)Technique: SilenceObservation: Witnessing becomes natural and more effortlessIntention: 13- To give Money, love, thanks, gifts ….etc to any living in existence (Experience, do)Technique:One of RC TechniquesObservation: 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 14- To Discover hidden ability and sustain it (Experience)Technique: IntentionIntention 15- Today, I shall not judge ( Doing, Experiencing)Technique: “Today, I shall not judge” as a mantra, The art of Psychonavigation (From RealityCreation Article)Intention 16- What is there that I didn’t perceive before in those places ( I Picked some places, I visit every day) (Experience)Technique: Open question, A sense of explorationIntention 17- Being Alive (Experience)Technique: What is my intention for todayIntention 18- Meeting someone wise to share my issues withTechnique: A feeling comes to take an advice from someone wiseIntention 19- Accept all, Let it be (Living)Technique: Mantra for an hour while watching peopleIntention 20- Action without thinking (Doing)Technique: ImaginationIntention 21: - GratitudeTechnique: IntentionApplying 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 personLove,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 MuhammadSounds 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:
- Writing half a page
- Reading for an hour
- Do one thing as being self employed for the website am doing
- One mussel exercise for 2- 3 minutes
This was sent in by Bernadette: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 countryAnd 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 yearsLike 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."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.Alaa***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.RichardTo continue reading this article, please log-in.
- 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 ...
- 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!!
- 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!

- Responses to readers Q&A Session with Fred Dodson
"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.
