With this technique it is possible to treat diseases, to find harmony, and to obtain the coveted success of reaching our wildest dreams. But how do we attract into our lives what we really want?

Therefore, the thoughts that you maintain determines the elements that become your own or elements that you do not own. By practicing visualization, we act like a filmmaker. We develop a scene in our heads before modeling it into reality. The faculty of imagination acts as a projector. To explain the process of visualization, we...

How to Improve Visualization Capabilities to Help Attraction Law

“A psychologist would say that to set an idea in your mind meant that the unconscious is constantly on alert to situations that lead to the goal. A religious person would say that God heard his prayer.” – Mike and Nancy Samuels, Seeing With the Mind’s Eye: The History, Techniques and Uses of Visualization To solidify your faith in what you want, you can use the method of repetition of a word. It is an appropriate concept that seems foreign at first but can be turned into a usual habit. It suffices, for example, to repeat the word ‘joy’, secretly and constantly, so that the seed of joy fill us slowly. In this way, words are the embodiment of our thoughts. The word gives birth to an idea in our minds and directs our creative impulse. Another way to practice visualization more effectively is to add feelings to our thoughts. We observe our state of consciousness where we realize our desires, as opposed to what we hope to achieve. It is recommended that we mentally relive an experience where we needed to get something and we got it. Then we dwell on the emotion again and again, until we feel really connected to the feeling and believe that the achievement is indeed ours. Magical Thinking, Scientific Evidence Should we take the real power of visualization lightly? While using medical...

The book A New Earth from Eckhart Tolle

His books have sold millions of copies worldwide and among its followers is the famous American TV presenter Oprah Winfrey. Aged 60 years, Eckhart Tolle does not need any introduction. He returns with a book, which has generated considerable interest: A New Earth. Eckhart Tolle does not belong to any particular religion or philosophical tradition. His thinking revolves around a simple teaching: There exists in every human being a way out of its misery which, allows entry into inner peace. It proposes a series of practical exercises that go through some short periods of meditation to develop the awakening of self-awareness, listening and perceptive attention. According to Tolle, a deeper self-awareness inevitably leads the individual to a better relationship with himself. A New Earth His book is in perfect in terms of continuity with the spiritual dimension. New Earth takes an uncompromising look at the current state of humanity, based on what he called “an erroneous identification with the ego and mind.” In summary, Eckhart Tolle seeks to demonstrate that our mind is completely conditioned by our past, and that it guides most of our actions, and our emotions. These thoughts, emotions, and these reactions are repetitive and persistent; therefore, each individual is identified from the packaging of his/her past, which according to Tolle constitutes the “ego”. And, this ego is at the heart of our troubles, our tears...

Letting Go and Perseverance

Take a few moments to reflect on the situations where you feel most motivated. What are the basic reasons that mobilize you do something? The deep meaning that you attach to your actions has much to do with this factor. Thus, in everything you undertake, make sure that what you do is the vision of what you have given yourself in your life, that is, the horizon of a general sense that motivates you, the main objectives you want to reach. It is when the meaning is too small that you have the trouble of letting go. We define failure as the setbacks experienced by someone who sees his hopes as unfulfilled. To find out whether we have failed or not, we must consult our expectations. Imagine an artist who is dissatisfied with his work. He sees it as a failure if his expectations and not in the work itself. He will sees his work as a success if he focuses more on learning than on the work which he has achieved. Which of these situations is easier to accept? Plus, when our expectations are wider, we enrich our vision and we run a lesser risk of “failure”. But, it is also necessary that this vision corresponds to what we really are! In other words, we must define our goals from what is important to us, not to please...
