The Creative Workshop






 


  Your work here in this workshop is to assimilate data that you have been collecting from your real-life experience, and to bring the data together in a picture that satisfies and pleases you.  During your day, no matter what you are doing - as you are going to your job, working around your home, interacting with your family and friends - collect the data on things you like that you may later bring into your workshop.

   You may see someone who has a joyful personality.  Collect that data, and bring it into your workshop later.  You may see someone driving a vehicle that you would like, collect that data.  You may see an occupation that pleases you ... whatever it is that you are seeing that pleases you, remember it, even write it down, and then when you go into your workshop, you can begin the assimilation of the data.  And as you do so, you will prepare a picture of self that you will begin attracting into your experience.

   As you enter your workshop already feeling good, and then you bring to your workshop specific aspects of life experience that please you, and as you envision these things in  greater detail, your life outside of your workshop will begin to reflect the images that you have created within the Creative Workshop. This is a powerful tool that will help you create the perfect life for yourself.

Arnold Schwarzenegger on using his creative workshop




Arnold Schwarzenegger, five time Mr. Universe, four-time Mr. Olympia has not only used visualization for athletic success but also credits it for his success as a movie star:

"When I was very young I visualized myself being and having what it was I wanted. Mentally I never had any doubts about it. The mind is really so incredible. Before I won my first Mr. Universe title, I walked around the tournament like I owned it. The titles was already mine. I had won it so many times in my mind that there was no doubt I would win it. Then when I moved on to the movies, the same thing. I visualized myself being a famous actor and earning big money. I could feel and taste success. I just knew it would all happen.

Visualization can practically replace physical practice. Arnold Schwarzenegger used the power of his imagination to become Mr. Olympia 6 times, to become a movie superstar, to become a successful business man, and to become governor of California.





Many successful people have tapped into the power of the creative workshop!

VISUALIZE DELIBERATELY






 

Most of our physical human friends are not doing much visualizing. Most of you are observing what-is. Now that can be a good thing. It often isn’t, however. It sort of depends on what you are observing.

If you are mostly an observer (and most of you are) you are thriving in good times but suffering in bad times. Because whatever you’re observing is reflected in your vibration. So as you observe it, you radiate a vibration that matches it. The Universe accepts that as your point of attraction and gives you more like it which then you observe. So the better it gets the better it gets — or the worse it gets the worse it gets. But if you are a visionary, you thrive in all times. Because as a visionary, you have learned to hold your vibration in the place that matches your desire. Basically you have one function that breaks down into two activities. The two activities are: Line up your Energy. And realign it if it gets out of alignment. That’s really all there is to it.

It isn’t until you deliberately hold a thought and then see the Universal response to it that you really begin to understand what’s going on. Play these games of visualization for a few days. It will be such fun for you, and if you will do it, it will give you two very important things. First, it will show you that you can hold a thought for 17 seconds. That’s a “biggee”, bigger than you know. And the other is, it will show you that the Universe will absolutely, every time, respond to the purity of your thought. Very good.

Seeing beyond the reality of what-is
__________________________________________________ ____


Never mind what-is.

Imagine it the way you want it to be so that your vibration is a match to your desire. When your vibration is a match to your desire, all things in your experience will gravitate to meet that match every time.


Excerpted from the workshop in Boca Raton, FL on Sunday, January 12th, 1997

Muhhamed Ali and using his creative workshop



Champions aren't made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them - a desire, a dream, a vision. - Muhammad Ali

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The quote above came from Muhammed Ali, a famous boxer who had made a mark in the boxing industry by his name, and his ambition to score knock outs in record time.  What marks Muhammed Ali from other boxers was not so much his training regimen, nor his time at the gym, but his focus.  Muhammed Ali would visualize his dream to be big in the industry, regularly, by imagining it as real, though his creative workshop.

A creative workshop does not necessarily have to be performed sitting down in an altered state.  Although it would feel comfortable to be sitting down, while one deliberately focuses, a creative workshop can be performed anywhere - in the car, on the subway, at the grocery store, alone in your house - as long as you focus on a vision and believe that what you are envisioning can become real.

The important thing is that you feel good as you envision it, and like Muhammed Ali, if you feed your creative workshop through your emotions -your feeling of passion for the dream, and your feeling that dream can come true - it will.

Today, in the creative workshop, find a vision and focus on it.  The creative workshop is a technique used by many famous people in making what they dream into becoming a deliberate reality.

99.9% of all creation happens in the mind first ... 
 

Abraham:

That's one thing we have noticed.  People building empires, people forming relationships, lasting relationships, creating big projects, master pieces, everyone of them does more then 99 percent of the building it, and putting it together, before they purchase their first piece of land, before they put the first board or brick into place, in other words, it is all accomplished vibrationally before they begin, in the action sense. 


Meditteranean Cruise - May 2008

.... so deliberately practice your desired manifestations in your mind, with the creative workshop, before they begin to manifest!

AttractionFactor, this new thread is awesome, inspiring, and uplifting. I love it! ... love it!! I never knew that about Arnold. ::wow I love hearing those kind of stories!!



 





Did you know that Jim Carrey used the power of affirmations and visualization to achieve his acting goals?

This is pretty interesting…

I’ve always believed in magic. When I wasn’t doing anything in this town, I’d go up every night, sit on Mulholland Drive, look out at the city, stretch out my arms, and say, “Everyone wants to work with me. I’m a really good actor. I have all kinds of great movie offers.”

I’d just repeat these things over and over, literally convincing myself that I had a couple of movies lined up. I’d drive down that hill, ready to take the world on, going, “Movie offers are out there for me, I just don’t hear them yet.”

It was like total affirmations, antidotes to the stuff that stems from my family background.”

-Jim Carrey, Actor/Comedian

And if that wasn’t enough, here’s something else Jim invoked to attract his success.

(This excerpt was taken from Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles”)

“Around 1990, when Jim Carrey was a struggling young Canadian comic trying to make his way in Los Angeles, he drove his old Toyota up to Mulholland Drive. While sitting there looking at the city below and dreaming of his future, he wrote himself a check for $10 million, dated it Thanksgiving 1995, added the notation “for acting services rendered,” and carried it in his wallet from that day forth.

The rest, as they say, is history. Carrey’s optimism and tenacity eventually paid off, and by 1995, after the huge box office success of Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask, and Dumb & Dumber, his asking price had risen to $20 million per picture.

When Carrey’s father died in 1994, he placed the $10 million check into his father’s coffin as a tribute to the man who had both started and nurtured his dreams of being a star.”

Just gives you something to think about regarding the power of visualization, affirmations, and having clearly defined goals, doesn’t it?

Very powerful to know, livingourdream.   I've always been a fan of Jim Carey.  There are a lot of people who can be funny, but there are those, like Jim, who can be funny, and visualize where they want to go with their humor.  It shows when you create a daily creative workshop, on what you want, and stick to it, your workshop can become a reality.

The deliberate creative workshop of Bill Clinton - to become President of the United States





In 1960, John F. Kennedy was elected President. Two years later, when Bill Clinton was a senior in high school, he was selected to go to Washington, D.C., to be a part of Boys Nation, a special youth leadership conference. The young men of Boys Nation and the young women of Girls Nation were invited to the White House to meet President Kennedy. Bill Clinton was one of the first in line to shake President Kennedy's hand in the Rose Garden. That event was one of the most memorable, important experiences of his youth. After that, he knew he wanted to make a difference in the lives of the people of America by becoming President.

From an encounter with John F Kennedy, a young Bill Clinton focused on that encounter daily, and let it grow in his vision.  He focused on that encounter, and directed his own vision, to make that encounter a part of his own reality

For those who engage in creative workshops, we should note that our workshop is very much like Clinton's vision.   He focused on his meeting with the President, and it impacted him for the rest of his life.   He gave that vision his desire, and fueled it with his passions.  His education in college assisted him in this type of role, and he became a lawyer, then an elected politician.

In 1992, that vision that Bill Clinton had focused on, since his meeting with President Kennedy in high school, became his own reality, as he was elected the 42nd president of the United States.


Using the creative workshop - what we focus on - can become our reality, if we know how to find ways to feel good about engaging in this process.  Like Bill Clinton, if we have a dream, and find a way to fuel it with positive emotion in our minds, like an encounter with a distinguised figure who we want to emulate, we can create our lives, deliberately, on what we want to manifest.

I love my creative workshop! I just wanted to say that our visions ARE real. We dont have to help them BECOME real. They are more real than "what is" reality because they are real time and "what is" is the past. Enjoy!

Hi Jerry,

Good to hear that your creative workshops are going well.  It is very much a powerful process!

You wrote:

 I just wanted to say that our visions ARE real. We dont have to help them BECOME real. They are more real than "what is" reality because they are real time and "what is" is the past.






One thing I've picked up, from my practice of the creative workshop, is giving a vision more and more attention, actually expands it.  If we feel good about a vision, focus on it, it becomes more; however if we feel bad about a vision, such as worry if it really will actually come, our worry about that vision becomes more.  So how a specific manifestation expands in relation to a vision, depends on our current emotional set point.

From my experience, the creative workshop, which is a process of deliberately imagining things in our experience for a certain duration every day, can assist us in making more of want to be real, by our continued attention to how we focus on it, yet it's important we feel good about the vision, and not bad, because how we feel about the vision is how it will manifest.

The creative workshop process technique is nothing new; the process did not begin with Abraham, however it is a process espoused by the Abraham teachings. It is a technique of visualization that has been used by many successful people, like Jim Carey, Bill Clinton, Muhammed Ali, and many others, who have used deliberate visualizations to accomplish specific goals in their lives.

I think it's powerful stuff (grin)!


Steve

Agreed Steve! Very powerful stuff! I also agree that the goal of visualizing is to feel good, to bring a smile to your face.

Hi Chelle5,

I appreciate your sharing how this thread may have inspired you.  It's a good feeling to be in the vortes (grin).

These latest examples of the creative workshop all show how very successful people deliberately focused in having grand careers, and the creative workshop can be used for that specific purpose. 

However, I hope I'm not persuading anyone to think a creative workshop is only geared to grand types of focus; we can use the creative workshop for small things, like imagining being more social with our coworkers, or imagining a better relationship with a parent or spouse.

The process is about picking a specific image, and producing a positive feeling in relation that that image, so our outside world will being to mimic what we have given our attention to in the creative workshop.  Often, though, it can take work to shift the feeling of an image, that produces resistance in us.

I hope we can produce other examples, that are less grand (although it's good to hear how very successful people have used this process), and more about living our daily lives, more deliberately, by how we imagine our day to day encounters (grin).

Steve

The Visualization process is the
purpose of life




What your purpose in life is, is the visualization process. To look
around and see it like it is and then imagine it better. Look around and
see it like it is and then imagine it better. The visualization process
is your purpose of life. The Universe will match it with the physical
equivalent.

The tricky thing is to not keep getting swept up in the physical
equivalent so much that you lose sight of your ability to visualize. Can
you hear it? The temptation is to then start observing. The temptation
is to just start observing, to let what's happening around you to
dominate your every thought. Your work is to keep pulling yourself back.
You go to the gym to work your muscles. We want you to go the {Creation}
Box to work your mind. We want you to work at visualization. It's not
going to come easy in the beginning. It's going to be hard. Other things
are going to call you off. You're going to find your mind wandering all
over the place. You are going to have to work at maintaining a focus. To
maintain a focus and feel good can take a strong deliberate intent
because it's easier to follow those knee-jerk reactions. Those old
habits are very well entrenched.

Your purpose in the physical experience is to use the data that abounds
to collect the bits and pieces of it to create a scenario that rocks
your world--and when you do that, the Universe will respond with a
vibrational equivalent. But we want so much for you to hear that the
vibrational equivalent--the physical manifestation--is not what it's
about. It's the power of the vision"


Abraham-Hicks From the Quarterly Journal Jul/Aug/Sep 1996

The power of deliberate creative visualization



Is Abraham saying that you could reach what you consider to be a prime human physical condition and that you could maintain it for as long as you remain physically focused in this body? The answer is, absolutely yes. And it doesn't mean reach your prime and then jump off a cliff the same day, either. It means, reach your prime and bask in the deliciousness of that. Now, why is other than that the more consistent experience?

Because most everybody is looking around and vibrating in response to what they are seeing. So, what is the solution?

Look around less. Imagine more. Look around less. Imagine more. Until your imagery is the most familiar vibration that you have.

--- Abraham, Excerpted from the workshop in Boca Raton, FL on Saturday, January 16th, 1999

The deliberate creative workshop of Tiger Woods






As Steve Williams, Tiger's caddie describes it: "I'll tell you 100 percent what happened," says Williams. "Tiger came back from Carnoustie, and instead of spending hours on the practice field, he just tried to picture how he wanted to swing the club. He used what Hank was telling him to do - which he had been having quite a bit of difficulty putting into practice - and went about getting swing thoughts organized and the right mental picture. He came to Firestone having done little actual practice, but from that point on, he had a mental image of himself that he was able to relate to the movement of his body.

"And each week he played, he got a little bit better right up to the Tour Championship. His rhythm and balance with every club were exceptional, and never changed. In the 10 years I've been with him, it was the best stretch I've ever seen Tiger play." That process was how Woods came closer than he has ever been to "owning" his swing, to borrow the phrase that has been his goal since he began working with Haney in early 2004.

Excerpt taken from Golf Digest

Tiger uses his creative workshop - not so much his action, but by focusing his goals in his creative worktop - to become the one of the best golfers in the world.
