If you are a believer of the law of attraction, and have read books on it, you would know that one of the things that are advised by experts is to make believe, to pretend that what you want is already in your life. Below we are going to discuss how to make believe for manifesting the life I want (or you want).
“Believe that you have received it, and it will be yours”
That is pretty much the gist of it. But how to believe that you have something, when you don’t have it!? Sometimes, trying harder to make believe causes you to notice more acutely that it isn’t there!
So the answer is, since the end goal of wanting something is always to feel good, focus on getting the feelings or emotions that you would feel if you do have it. But how do you easily get to feeling like that?
Some people asked to close your eyes and visualize. Imagine doing things with your new found wealth, imagine going on that trip, imagine going on that date, imagine…
The Most Important Element of Visualization
But many people take this too literally. I can’t fill in the details. I can’t form a clear enough image in my head. The image is always changing. But if you think about it, the reason you don’t have the details could be because you haven’t got it yet, and hence how could you know! If you’ve never been to a certain country and you want to go there, how could you form a clear image of this place or that place?
Again, my suggestion is to focus on the emotions that you want to feel, which is the most important part of visualization anyway. Why do you want all that money? What are you feeling now that your business is thriving? Are you standing there and feeling satisfaction? Are you feeling joy? And even if you haven’t been to that place you want to go, you could just make up the details according to what pleases you, even if you don’t know whether it’s realistic or not. For example, somehow you manage to communicate with the people there in English, even though you’re not sure if that is a English-speaking country.
The other reason that you can’t visualize properly is that you were thinking negatively prior to your visualization, and hence it is difficult for you to think happy, positive thoughts now. The way to get around this is to relax, let your troubles melt away, and just enjoy your visualization. Give yourself this time and space.
Going Deep Into The Present
There’s also a roundabout way that you can use to get to the emotions you want. Eckhart Tolle, the author of The Power of Now, advised to go deep into the present moment. Because going into the present is said to produce similar effects as meditating, and both of these activities re-establishes our connection with who we really are, which is Source or Being or one of the many names humans have came up with over the years.
And when we are connected to this Source, we feel pure joy, pure appreciation, pure love. The greatest emotions one could have is when he or she is connected to Source. The closer we get to Source, the more positive feelings we get. All that we want is available to us when we are connected to this Source in terms of emotions.
