How to Practice Creating A Picture

You have seen the headlines screaming at you; Create Your Perfect World, Make Millions Now, Dream Yourself a Winner, and other paraphrased headings almost daily. Vision Boards and all types of aids are used to abet many of those headlines. Underling many of those headlines are the ability to use visualization to achieve your goals. The part left untouched is showing you how to visualize so you indeed can get some positive results from your efforts. Peaches

Many of the visualization topics tell you to “get a picture in your mind’s eye,” “visualize it” or similar terms. Few, myself included, actually give you practical exercises you can use to show you how to get those pictures.

This post will not attempt to ‘reinvent the wheel.’ Instead, I will simply point you to one of the sites I favor in enhancing my ability to visualize. The site is free to use, and you may donate if you desire.

You may use the visualizations techniques espoused by the Mind-Expanding Techniques site to achieve all types of things. Recalling your dreams, remembering all sorts of data, lists, and names can readily be enhanced by using those methods.

I have spent many years in the classroom teaching many subjects, military, academic, and postal. On just as many occasions I could sense when “the light bulb went on” and the students understood the concept I was conveying. I have also been a student in many classes and never did “get a picture” of what the instructor was attempting to convey.

Perhaps a more recognizable example of using visualization was exhibited by game-show host Dick Clark. On many occasions before the start of the bonus round, Dick Clark would tell the celebrity player to “remember to paint a picture.” He would say, “Give a nice tidy list like ‘his hammer, his saw, his nail’ … and your partner will think ‘what do those things have in common?’ … and immediately think of a carpenter.”

What’s left for you to do is ‘head on over’ to the afore-mentioned technique site and get started.

As usual, I wish you peace and prosperity!

Dream Yourself A Winner – Final

nkd1 As promised in my April 26, 2015 post, here is a system with which I have had moderate success. This method was given to me as a gift, and the sender merely listed their name(s) as “Your Friend and Astrologer.”

The method is very simple. For each symbolic image that appears in your dream, you select one of the numbers from the two columns next to each keyword. Your selection is made according to the even or odd date when your dream took place.

Obviously, your dreams will have several images. All you have to do is list the images and look for the corresponding words. It may happen that the exact term is missing (this is not the dictionary). In that situation, you will easily find the equivalent in this list.

Example of Dream:
You are attending a funeral in a country cemetery on a rainy day. The minister, sheltered by an oak tree, is holding a candle in his left hand, and spraying the grave with holy water.

Key Words:
Funeral/cemetery/country/rainy/minister/candle/left/water/grave/shelter/oak

Examples of Equivalents You Could Use:
Preacher for Minister, Refuge for shelter, Rural for Country, Tomb for Grave, Shower for Rain, etc. Tree could have also been used in place of refuge. As clearly shown in my May 6, 2015 post, titled “Dream Yourself a Winner – Part 2, most of your dreams may have additional symbols, which will pinpoint which number to use.

Example of How to Interpret Your Dream:
Assuming your dream took place on an even numbered night ( 2nd, 16th, or 28th day of the month for example), you would take the numbers from column 1 (the even column). Funeral – 13, Cemetery – 33, Country – 26, Rainy -16, use a priest as an equivalent for Minister – 16, Candle – 37, left – 9, Water – 28, etc.

The instructions conclude with “I hope that you take full advantage of this limited translation reserved only for my friends. It’s something special that you will not find anywhere else, and I hope it will bring you new satisfaction in games of chance and fortune.”

You may download a zipped copy in xlsx, csv, or pdf format, along with instructions. All three file formats are contained in the file named Table_of_Dreams.zip.

[ALERT] It is vitally important to note the following observations: You can recall every detail of your dream, observe multiple images to confirm what you saw, convert the keyword to a number, rush out to purchase some type of gaming ticket, and win absolutely N-O-T-H-I-N-G!

So what went wrong? Again, the answer is N-O-T-H-I-N-G. Your unconscious mind provides you answers in all types of ways. The pictures you observed in your dream may be the answer you requested of your subconscious mind days, months, or years ago!

As a result of the above observation, spend some time practicing converting your dreams to numbers and checking the results prior to investing your money.

As always, I wish you continued Good Luck!

A Gift for the New Year

A new year's gift

A new year’s gift

I indeed hope that your holiday gifts included many of the items that you desired. The Yuletide season is an excellent opportunity to get some of the physical items that make our lives more comfortable.

But, did your life make a significant change after obtaining those precious gifts? If your gifts did not help you “reach that silver lining” known as prosperity and achievement, then you need to explore further.

Most of the programs, teachings, seminars, and self-help programs have one major purpose or goal: to assist you in reshaping your astrological fields so you can obtain whatever your wants and desires. If you carefully read most programs advertisements, you might get the idea that you only had to do ‘one small tiny thing’ to receive great wealth, success, etc.

But you and I know differently. Each of us is unique and definitely not one-dimensional. One program that I favor, which takes into account our multi-facet astrological fields, is The Secret of Deliberate Creation. The flip switch, removing self-sabotage, when to take action, and your silent partner are all included in this program.

The program is presented in a manner that fits individual beliefs that coincide with your astrological fields. Your core beliefs will not rebel against the ideas presented. If you truly want to know why your current status shows little or no change in spite of all your efforts, point your browser to this page.

You see; anybody can sell you a program, book, CD, etc. and then leave it up to you to “figure out” how to get things done. The owner of The Secret of Deliberate Creation, however, takes you by the hand and shows you how.

Read about the program as many times as necessary until it sinks in. I think incorporating the content into whatever you are doing will be one of the best gifts you can give yourself this holiday season.

As always, I wish you the best!

Gratitude

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays

You have probably noticed that the majority of posts on this blog are related to those methods and procedures that one can explore to achieve success by using their ‘natural or God-given assets.’ Most of those ideas promote you ‘tuning into your unconscious mind’ for answers and solutions without expending your hard-earned money.

There are many components involved in accessing your subconscious mind. Likewise, there are all kinds of techniques promoted to assist you in gaining that access. Gratitude, meditation, prayers, etc., are some of the frequently used methods to assist you in gaining access. Each of us may respond to each of those stimuli differently. That allows us to use the ones in which we feel more comfortable.

Today’s post is more closely related to gratitude. In this post, I re-list one of the simple methods I shared in a previous post titled: A Twist of Fate. In that post, I stated, “As we go about our daily lives, occasionally we bump into one of those blocks that make us stop and reconsider. Today, it was not a bump at all. Instead, it was words that someone else put to video that made me reconsider.”

As we enter this year’s holiday season, I thought it appropriate for you to experience the gratitude aspect of success again. The video is short, but is packed with values you may choose to use in your search for that ‘magic kingdom.’

Enjoy!

Creative Visualization

successYou’ve seen that title or similar wording in all types of esoteric topics. The general idea expressed is to get a picture of what you want into your unconscious mind, and miraculous things will happen. Even I continue to use phrases like ‘create a picture, ‘in your mind’s eye,’ and ‘visualize.’

Unfortunately, when we use phrases such as visualize, we do not control nor realize exactly what type of pictures the individual thinks of. Those pictures are generally a product of the individual’s environment and experiences. For example, I could say to get a picture of a slice of cold watermelon. However, if you had never seen a watermelon, the picture you think of could be anything.

Today we have many resources available to assist us in researching, recalling, and remembering all types of information. In the early years of civilization, radios, television, telephones, and the Internet did not exist. “For the most part, the teaching method was based upon rote learning… The primary agency of education in both ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia was the home. Parents and elders of the clan or extended family were responsible for the education of children” 1

Although I attended elementary school beginning at age six, I was told many ‘stories by my elders’ (primarily Grandma Maggie, neighbors Sarah Blount, and Arthur Jasper Moore) and instructed always to remember them. One of those stories was the 23rd Psalm. Not only did I recite the verses to my elders. I also had to interpret those verses to their satisfaction. Some of the meanings my elders used while teaching me this Psalm may have been discarded. However, bits and pieces of those stores still lingered in my memory.

As I advanced in age, I finally began to realize the 23rd Psalm may also provide an additional method to help my divine mind in creating my environment. And that was one of the underlying reasons I was told to ‘never forget it.’

In this post, I will take that familiar psalm and list some key words to aid you in associating a picture with the verbiage. All you have to do is read (silently or aloud) the 23rd Psalm phrase on the left side of the table and get a picture of the words listed in the right side of the table. You may substitute any other words you feel are appropriate or relevant.

Creative Visualization Example
23rd Psalm Phrase Idea to think about
The Lord is my shepherd God, or older-wiser, sibling or parent holding your hand or arm around shoulder, protective eyes watching over you
I shall not want You having plenty of food to eat, clothing for your body, money to spend, adequate shelter, and love
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures more customers, proposals approved, extra money, promotions, plentitude
He leadeth me beside the still waters harmony, peace, balance
He restoreth my soul health, new ideas, rest, recuperation, daily manna
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake correct decisions, right choices, the way that leads to success, escape route
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil Difficult situations being dissolved, positive answers that may be 'right in front of your eyes.' I love easy problems
for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me It's ok! I've got many people helping me. My divine mind will 'pop the answer up' any minute now.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies 'tons of ideas' to choose from, all types of answers to objections, the pick of the crop, competition left in awe
thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over being honored, dignified, like a phoenix rising from the ashes, triumphing, more and plenty to spare
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life My divine mind is always with me, so all I have to do is turn to my divine mind for more solutions. I have lots of answers at my disposal.
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever I am a positive thinker. I will stay positive because my divine mind has positive solutions for my use.

So, when you recite the 23rd Psalm, use some of these words or similar phrases to assist in awakening part of your unconscious mind from its deep slumber.

Of course, you may continue to use the 23rd Psalm the way you have always done. Nothing in the post should be construed otherwise. However, explore the additional idea here to enhance you achieving your chosen goals and aspirations. I feel you will be glad you did! Until next time, I wish you P-E-A-C-E.
