The deliberate creative workshop of Michael Phelps





"Before the (Olympic) trials I was doing a lot of relaxing exercises and visualization. And I think that that helped me to get a feel of what it was gonna be like when I got there. I knew that I had done everything that I could to get ready for that meet, both physically and mentally".

Michael Phelps, Eight time Gold Medal winner at the 2008 Olympics.

Thanks for all these inspiring examples! I love to visualize, and the other day I decided to stop in the middle of my day and go lie down and listen to relaxing music and just step into a lovely daydream. It was fantastic. I was totally there.

There was an actual study done of people visualizing exercising their muscles, and they did in fact increase their strength. Pretty cool. A little "scientific" evidence doesn't hurt. :)

The deliberate creative workshop of the inventor Nikola Telsa


 






 

My method is different. I do not rush into actual work. When I get a new idea, I start at once building it up in my imagination, and make improvements and operate the device in my mind. When I have gone so far as to embody everything in my invention, every possible improvement I can think of, and when I see no fault anywhere, I put into concrete form the final product of my brain.


 
Nikola Tesla (Serbian: Никола Тесла; 10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943) was an inventor, mechanical engineer, and electrical engineer. He was an important contributor to the birth of commercial electricity, and is best known for his many revolutionary developments in the field of electromagnetism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Tesla's patents and theoretical work formed the basis of modern alternating current (AC) electric power systems, including the polyphase system of electrical distribution and the AC motor, which helped usher in the Second Industrial Revolution

Thank you Steve for this thread. :kiss:   This is one of my favorite Abe processes because it is one that I have used quite naturally and succcesfully before learning of Abe. This morning I realized I haven't used it as much or as intensely this past year as the previous year.

Thanks for the reminder!  ::cool ::grapevine

 The power of the creative workshop




We're going to give you a very powerful statement: Everything that you will some day live, in terms of life experience -- and by some day, we mean as soon as right now, tomorrow, the next day, or some day -- anything that you will some day live, you have first imagined. Because nothing will manifest in your experience without the imagination process happening first.

Abraham, excerpted from the workshop in Houston, TX on Saturday, January 5th, 2002

Hi Indi-Em,

That's wonderful you are adding the creative workshop as a process!  

I  think the creative workshop is one of the most powerful tools we can use in
creating our lives deliberately.  It is a technique that has been used by many people,
who have attracted 'wanted' things in their experience, and the Abraham teachings
only espouse its benefit.

I know, from my own experience, that it can be of great help in creating the lives we
desire.

Steve

The deliberate creative workshop of Camille Duvall






"... I train myself mentally with visualization. The morning of a tournament, before I put my feet on the floor, I visualize myself making perfect runs with emphasis on technique, all the way through to what my personal best is in practice.... The more you work with this type of visualization, especially when you do it on a day-to-day basis, you'll actually begin to feel your muscles contracting at the appropriate times..."

Camille Duvall, "The Golden Goddess" of professional water skiing, holds more titles in slalom than all other women waterskiers combined. Her nearly thirty year dominance in the sport is unprecedented, and her impact on the public's perception of water skiing helped it gain recognition and popularize the sun-drenched water sport.

Steve,
I am so appreciating this thread. Thank you for your work in researching and posting... which leads me to wonder.. Where do you find this stuff?
also, your opinion. If you're not really sure what you are specifically wanting such as a great water ski run or winning a golf tournament, but you just want your life to elevate.. any suggestions on the creative workshop?

Much appreciation to you!

Steve! I agree-what an amazing thread! I LOVE threads like this! You've done such a wonderful job researching and designing your posts--what a gift!

Thank you.

The quote that sticks out most for me is what Arnold Schwartznegger said about walking around the Olympia like he owned the place, before he won his first title.  That makes so much sense. He was already living in his future. It's brilliant.

I actually just had a wonderful experience in the Philippines. As you know, I'm an actress.  I did extremely well there--photo shoots, daily articles, great reviews, sold out shows, standing ovations, people asking for my autograph, dignitaries visiting the show. It was awesome, and felt like the preview for what will be happening back in North America.  I just basked and savored it.  It felt so good.  The best part about it was that I didn't really care, so everything that happened was a bonus.  Meaning, I have no attachment to being famous in the Philippines!  LOL  And it helps me to detach from being famous HERE. In my mind, I'm already a Superstar.  It's done.


I love this stuff.

When I was in the hotseat a couple of years ago, Abe said to me, "Your vision for your career is real. It's not pie in the sky, it's real. And when it breaks loose, and it IS breaking loose, your work will thrill the world. Trust."

Since then, I have cut loose so much more. And I am headed so much more clearly in that direction!  It's actually amazing.  Since I know FOR SURE that my magnificent career is in the works, I don't need to stress about anything! I can just relax and enjoy the ride. And I am.


Life is just so good. 


My only goal right now is to get better and better at controlling my vibration.  To get better and better at being in a good mood. That's it! That is success for me now. And I'm doing so much better at that than ever before. I'm at a family reunion right now, and I did great for the first two events, and for the third one, I was tired. SO I DIDN'T GO! And that was the right thing for me.


Thank you, Steve, for the reminder.  The creative workshop is a pleasure to enter just because it IS.  It feels so good to hang around in our Vortex and see what's there.  I think I'll do it right now!

Oh, the other thing I got from the quote you posted from Abraham, is that lasting relationships are also something that require vision.  That is another great reminder!

With much love and appreciation,

Leslie::rainbow

When you deliberately conjure an image for the purpose of creating, we want you to understand that, well, often people think "I'm going to sit and do my creating now." And we want you to understand that all that visualization is, is practicing the vibration of what you already asked for. This is just vibrational practice.  All that visualizing is not making something happen. It's letting something that's already happened in. That's such an important distinction. You're not creating with your affirmations, you're not creating with your visualizations, you are practicing a vibration that lets it in. So, the more practicing you do, the more you set a tone that lets more in. Detroit, Mich. 9/22/07



Thanks again for a magnificent thread, Steve!

Since studying the Abraham teachings, I've been led into my research on the imagination.  The Abraham teachings are very big on this concept, especially with the Creative workshop.  On the Law of Attraction Cd collection, this process was discussed in great detail, so I've embarked in practicing, as well as researching it.

However,  after searching through Google, there's not a lot of collected data on deliberate visualization on the internet.  So I have to parrot through different sites with key Google terms that bring up quotes that interest me.  I enjoy posting my research on a thread where I can share it with others (grin), but it can be a bit of challenge to find quotes on deliberate imagination.

Yes, many of the examples I've posted seem to relate to grandiose forms of visualizations, such as high pitched career goals, like Tiger winning the Masters through visualization practices, or Arnold visualizing being the Governor or California, and that is a wonderful way that I've found how people have used the power of the creative workshop.

However, how we imagine deliberately can be on grand things, or small things.  The important thing is to focus on a specific image and find a way to feel good about it in our minds.    We often hear from the Abraham teachings that "feeling good" is what matters, and it's important to follow that logic when using the creative workshop.

So in terms of normal everyday life, you can use an encounter with a person, such as a son, daughter, spouse, parent, coworker, and imagine them.  If you have a person in your experience that once upset you, put your attention to an image of them that doesn't see them in anger, but sees them in appreciation.   If you give more and more attention to the positive image, you'll begin to notice a shift in how you relate with that person vibrationally.  You'll feel nicer and less reactive.

However you have to practice this type of imagery regularly.  You can't just do it for a few days and stop, it takes a bit of practice.   You may also have to do some deliberate work to move up the Emotional scale with that person's image in your mind, but when you can think or imagine that person and feel good, you'll know your creative workshop is working, as you intended.

You'll also notice that as you remove more and more negativity from your experience, such as your perception of negative encounters with people that relate with you, your level of allowing will increase in your experience, and your life will then begin to elevate in ways that did not think could happen.

The creative workshop is an incredible tool (grin).

Steve

The Philippines is a rich country in the department of the arts and entertainment.  They keep up with the latest trends in music, acting, and celebrity.   I grew up with the Filipino community, so I know how rich the culture is (grin).

One thing I can share, from my pratice with the creative workshop, is that t doesn't really matter how or where you use your creative workshop in your mind.  The important thing is the feeling that you are conjuring as you focus on an image, and in your example, that would be fame and appreciation for being a good actress.

For example, let's say a man feels a lack of confidence to approach women at a social function, like a bar or a party.  If he were to practice the creative workshop, he doesn't necessarily have to be in that type of room with other people, instead he just has to visualize himself with women that he would like to encounter.  That situation could be at work, at the mall, in another state, or even in another continent.  The important thing is to find the feeling place of the meeting.

I feel this also applies to you.  If you desire fame and appreciation for being an actress, the important thing to focus on is the feeling, and not so much where you are famous.   The good thing about the trip in the Philippines is that you've observed fame there, and you know that feeling well.  It maybe a good idea to milk images you picked up there, such as signing autographs and reading about your name in the paper, and milk that good feeling in your mind on a regular basis. 

In time, that feeling will have to replicate in your current environment.  Your feeling of fame in the Philippines, will begin to create with your feeling of fame in the United States.  I think this is also why actors and actresses here become famous internationally, since their feeling of fame spreads.  It isn't contained in a country, it moves in relation to how they feel about their experience with their careers, and reaching a broader audience.

Yes, that is a powerful quote from Abraham.  Having a vision seems to be very important for deliberate creation, because what we focus on is what will become real.  And having a vision for a relationship, and giving that vision more and more of our attention, even if that relationship doesn't actually fit that vision yet, is what I think is key to making it happen.

I think vision is a key component of deliberate creation (grin).
