ROOT OF SUCCESS, a wonderful little book someone gave me that I’ve been sharing with you that I find to be very enlightening and easy to read.

Chapter 8:



We’re all “works in progress!” Honor and respect your progress of “becoming” and your destination will seem closer.

 Think It

Creative visualization is a mental way that uses the imagination to make dreams come true. Used in the correct way, creative visualization can improve our life and attract success and prosperity. It’s a power that can alter our environment and circumstances, cause events to happen, and draw money, possessions, work, people and love into our life. Creative visualization applies the power of the mind, and is the power behind every success.

By visualizing a sealed event or a situation, or an object, like a car, a house, furniture etc, we attract it into our life. It’s a process that’s similar to daydreaming. For some individuals it may look like magic, but there’s no magic involved, only the natural process of the might of thoughts and natural mental laws.

There are individuals who apply this technique naturally in their daily affairs, not being aware that they’re using some form of power. All successful individuals use it consciously or unconsciously, attracting the success they want into their life, by visualizing their goals as already achieved.

How does it work and why? Thoughts, if mighty enough, are accepted by our subconscious, which then alters our mindset accordingly, also as our habits and actions, and this brings us into contact with new individuals, situations and circumstances.

Thought is a creative stuff that forms our life and draws similar stuff into our life. Thoughts likewise travel from one mind to another, and if they’re potent enough, they can be unconsciously picked up by individuals, who are in a position to help us materialize our wants and goals.

Thought is energy, particularly a concentrated thought loaded with emotional energy. Thoughts alter the balance of energy around us, and bring changes to the surroundings in accordance with them.

There’s another explanation why visualization fetches results. It might come as a surprise to most, but the theory of “Maya” – Illusion, which comes from the eastern doctrines, provides the explanation.

The world isn’t real, but only an illusion, produced by our thoughts. Since most individuals think and repeat the same or like thoughts often, centering their mind and thoughts on their current surroundings, they produce and recreate the same kind of events or circumstances. This process preserves the same “world” and status quo. It’s like watching the same film over and over again, but we can alter the film by changing our thoughts and visualize different circumstances and life, and in that way produce a different “reality”. For us it’s a reality, though in fact it’s just a dream we call “reality”.

By altering our thoughts and mental images we change our “Reality”; we change the “illusory” world we trust we live in. We’re not using magic or supernatural powers when producing and changing our life and circumstances. It isn’t something “Material” that we alter; we only alter our thoughts, which shape our world.

All this is like dreaming a very realistic dream, and then altering the dream. We’re not waking from the dream, just altering the dream.

So why not alter your dreams to something more pleasing?

If you live in small apartment and need a bigger one, rather than brooding about your fate and lack of income, alter your thoughts and visualize and believe that you’re living in a larger apartment.

Creative visualization can do dandy things, but for every individual there are some areas, which he or she may find hard to alter, at least in the immediate future. The might of visualization is a powerful power, but there are some limits to using it. These limits are inside us, not in the power.

We frequently limit ourselves and can’t look beyond a limited circle. We confine ourselves by our thoughts and beliefs. The more open-minded we can be, and the bigger we dare to think, the greater are our chances and possibilities. Restrictions are within our minds, and it’s up to us to rise above them.

It might take some time till things begin to change. Simple, little demonstrations of this power might come fast, but larger results may need a longer time to happen.


to be continued next week…

My name is Michele Andree. I am an artist, I paint musicians in action. I think I’m a musician at heart, my instrument being… a brush, so I play…brush and I paint… music.
I love jazz. I call it freedom music. It promotes special values. I love intelligent people and good conversations.

Some people ask me how music relates to art. Personally I find they go hand in hand. Music is what turns me on to painting. It makes me see colours
