For many years, I had this story on repeat in my mind: “If I don’t do it, no one else will.”
I believed that I had to strive hard and overwork in order to get what I wanted. So while I experienced a lot of joy and faith for the first 10 years that I was building my business, there was also an ever-present undercurrent of fear. I didn’t know how to let people help me, and as a result, I always felt unsupported and alone.
Three years ago I hit my limit. I knew things had to change. I was doing too much and I was burned out. So I turned to a powerful practice to do less, attract more, and completely turn things around with my business and my own happiness!
It’s called creative visualization, and in this post I want to share that practice with you. Creative visualization is a simple form of meditation that helps us feel really good. When we feel good, we become a magnet for what we want, because our energy attracts its likeness. Follow these steps to do less and attract more.
Step 1: Accept that you have the power to create the world you want to see.
You may not yet fully believe this. That’s OK. I just ask that you become willing to believe it. As you practice techniques like this one, you’ll start to experience very cool results that will give you more and more spiritual proof that you are a Super Attractor.
Step 2: Reframe your beliefs into a positive affirmation.
If what you want feels out of reach right now, you might doubt that it’s actually available to you. If you give a lot of energy to your doubts and limiting stories, then you’ll manifest what you don’t want (which is what many of us do by default).
So begin to look at the things that you want to attract and create an empowering affirmation.
For example, if you want to be more abundant but you’re currently in debt, don’t choose the affirmation, “I’ll make a million dollars this year.” It won’t feel good and will just reinforce negative feelings. Try something that feels more attainable and good, such as: “I’m open to creative ways to earn more money.”
Step 3: Visualize!
All you have to do is sit comfortably and see yourself doing what you want to do. Whatever you want to create, picture it in great detail.
While you visualize, picture everything going beautifully. It’s safe to unleash your imagination in this way and feel really good about what you’re visualizing. And if a negative thought pops up, just return to your affirmation.
Step 4: Let your visualization become a feeling.
Once you’ve pictured in detail what it is that you want, let your visualization take over you emotionally so you can feel a genuine connection to what you’re seeing.
For example, if you want to be more abundant, then truly allow yourself to feel that financial freedom and the relief of security.
As I say in my book Super Attractor, “The Universe wants you to feel good and wants to guide you toward exactly what you want and need.”
It’s good to feel good! As you elevate your energy, you’ll start to attract exactly what you need. At first this will astonish you, but the more you practice creative visualization, the more it will become normal! Feeling good makes you a magnet for miracles.
By visualizing for just 5 to 20 minutes a day, you can start to do less and attract more.
