Imagination Over Action








In your action, you lose sight of the vision, you lose sight of your trust in the process, and you just bang around in a sense of futility. Hold the vision and trust that the Universe will acclimate to your vision. Hold the vision and trust the process.

--- Abraham Excerpted from the workshop in Portland, OR on Tuesday, June 10th, 1997 #277

Hi Bene,

Thanks for your comments.

I like putting together one central location on the power of deliberate visualization.   If you were to google on the terms for imagination or visualization, there is a limit on the type of material that you can find.  There's been some research on visualization with athletic training which validates the power of visualization.   Likewise since the production of the Secret, more people have begun writing about the power of deliberate visualization in making more money.

These are all good extensions on how deliberate visualizations can be good to us, yet I know we can use deliberate visualization in other ways that more people are not looking into.  But I think it's good to find a place where you can read things over and over, instead of looking through different sites on the power the imagination.

When the Abraham teachings were first being introduced to the public, the creative workshop, which is the use of deliberate visualizations in our daily experience, was discussed regularly.   However, the Abraham teachings have shifted a bit to other examples, like the Vortex, and other analogies, but I know they'll return to the creative workshop more, once more people begin to see the power of how to use their imagination more delierately.

But thanks again for your comments (grin).

Steve

USE YOUR IMAGINATION DELIBERATELY



In other words, when you say I want a new red car, the universe responds to the vibration of your desire, but then you say 'a new car is too expensive' the universe responds to that to, so the universe is responding to two contradictory vibrations, and nothing changes for you.









I want a new car.

So in order to be the deliberate creator that your born to be, is to purify your vibration and don't contradict it.

In order to not contradict it, most of you have to do something that's not easy to not do, because you've been trained to do it since the beginning of your experience.

YOU HAVE TO OBSERVE WHAT IS A BIT LESS, AND
IMAGINE WHAT YOU WANT A LITTLE MORE.*










I imagine it, find the feeling place of it,
and it comes.

Deliberately

Hey Dude,

I'm just a guy who spends way too much time surfing the web through Google, so I can look for nice images to go on a discussion board (smile).    I also like to write words, like the Creative Workshop, in really big fonts! :>) 

Kidding aside, I appreciate your comments.  Thanks!

IMAGINE IT WITH A NEW STORY



As you imagine and visualize and verbalize your new story, in time you will believe the new story, and when that happens, the evidence will flow swiftly into your experience. A belief is only a thought you continue to think; and when your beliefs match your desires, then your desires must become your reality.

There is no physical body, no matter what the conditions, that cannot achieve an improved condition. Nothing else in your experience responds as quickly as your own physical body to your patterns of thought.

Abraham, Money and Law of Attraction:






Change how you imagine deliberately,
and you can change what you experience in your life.

IMAGINE DELIBERATELY





It's not your work to make anything happen. It's your work to dream it and let it happen. Law of Attraction will make it happen. In your joy, you create something, and then you maintain your vibrational harmony with it, and the Universe must find a way to bring it about. That's the promise of Law of Attraction.

Excerpted from a workshop in Larkspur, CA on Sunday, August 16th, 1998.

The deliberate creative workshop of Walt Disney











Walt Disney is an example of someone who believed in creative visualization and used it to create his entertainment empire. He called the process "imagineering."  When you visit Disneyland or Disney World, you are seeing examples of "the dream that you wish will come true."

Years after DisneyLand and DisneyWorld were completed, someone said to Mike Vance, the creative director of Walt Disney Studios, "Isn't it a shame that Walt Disney didn't live long enough to see this?"  Apparently, Mike Vance replied, "But he did see it.  That's why it's here."  Walt Disney may have been the world's greatest creative visualizer.

Thanks Dude.  I think most people relate to Walt Disney since his work has affected us in our childhood, or as parents, if we have children, who have become inspired by his Disney magic (grin).  I also think it's good to know how deliberate creation is effective to anyone - it's not just limited as a spiritual concept - but it branches to anyone in our society. 

Walt Disney used deliberate creation concepts in his life experience - he felt good about his work, he dreamed beyond what others saw as reality, and created magnificently.  His creative endeavors still live on, despite his transition in the 1960s, even fifty years later. 

I also think the creative workshop is just a master of focus.  We can create anything in this lifetime, if we know how to direct our minds on what we are wanting, and using the imagination is an effective tool to accomplish this.

Steve

Love this thread, Steve, ::TU :kiss: 

And, of course, good ol' LOA in action... I hadn't 'noticed' this thread before, but today, having made the decision to be more consistent about visualising my desires, what do I see, loud and clear? : The Creative Workshop thread! ::LOL

Guess I'm on the right track then! ::LOL

Love,

Hi Rach,

Glad to hear you're getting into the Creative workshop more in your experience.
I leave you a quote, from Jim Carey, to inspire you to try visualization more often.

"I would visualize things coming to me. It would just make me feel better. Visualization works if you work hard. That's the thing. You can't just visualize and go eat a sandwich."
- Jim Carrey

 



 

And we know where Jim Carey went with his movie career, by visualizing (grin).

Steve

I like this thread and here I am.  I have never really understood how to use the Creative Workshop, even after reading through this thread right now.  So help me out.  Of course, I could get up and turn on the lights and get out Ask and it is given and read it, but I have done that before.  I just don't get how it is different from Virtual Reality.  but anyway, what I want to know is, exactly how do I start.  So I am sitting here, feeling good, and I want to start The Creative Workshop process.  What do I do?

Hi MissMolly47,

The creative workshop is an effective tool to deliberately create your life experience, if it is practiced properly. 

missmolly47 wrote:  I just don't get how it is different from Virtual Reality. 

The Virtual Reality is a process of conjuring images in your mind, deliberately, for the sole purpose of feeling good.  With enough practice of the virtual reality, your emotions will begin to acclimate to the feeling good vibration you set up in the repeated virtual reality sessions that you practice. Livingourdream has produced several good examples in the Virtual Reality Thread that you can browse through for examples.

The Creative workshop is designed to create images in your mind, so you outer world will begin to reflect your inner world.   So if you imagine a picture of a red car on a regular basis, as something you want to own, soon, depending on your emotional set point on that car, the red car can manifest in your experience.

It's a good idea to just focus on how things manifest in your experience, by your deliberate attention to them.

As a suggestion, given by Abraham on the Law of Attraction CD, you should get a piece of paper, write three things that you want, which you believe that you can have.

It could be:


THINGS THAT I WANT WHICH I BELIEVE THAT I CAN HAVE

1) A particular pen
2) A front row parking space on a typical crowded lot.
3) A blue feather.

Focus on the three images that you wrote on your paper.  You can focus by imagining them, or you can focus by writing about them, as you imagine them, in your notebook.  I suggest the later since writing is a better tool to focus, as you imagine when sitting down, than to just sit and imagine.

If you can do this exercise for twenty minutes, then I think that is ample time to perform the creative workshop.  Repeat this process for the next few days, and it's important that you feel good about the images, and that you believe they can manifest in your experience.

If you are doing this process properly - where you are paying attention to the way you feel, and feeling good in your focus - you will find encounters with the things that you visualized in your creative workshop.

Steve

Steve, this is a great quote, very Abraham, as was Disney.  Great thanks for this and all your energized posts.

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


It's common to hear from someone of not knowing how to do a creative workshop.  I also think it's noteworthy to mention that we do creative workshops all the time, whenever we focus for a certain period of time on a particular subject matter.

For example, if we were to watch a horror movie for two hours, we are in a creative workshop.  Our minds are focused on the scenes that provoke fearful reactions in our bodies for the two hours that we are in the movie theater.  Once we leave the theather, we can end that creative workshop, or we can continue focusing upon those gory scenes that provoked us.  For the time we focused on the movie, we were in a creative workshop on how we observed how a director created a scary scene, and we reacted accordingly.

Likewise, if we hear news about someone missing or someone being murdered, and we focus on that news for a period of time, we are in a creative workshop.  We are giving our attention to an idea that feels fearful,  and feeding our negative reaction in our minds.

Of course, for both examples, we can choose to not focus on those negative scenes, and just focus on something else that feels more pleasant.  If we choose to focus on a more positive scenario, such as a movie that is uplifting and fun, or an inspiring piece of news of a person who overcame their obstacles in life, and became empowered by their handicaps even more, then we are in a creative workshop that is more positive for us, rather than negative.

The Abraham teachings advise us to be more deliberate about the type of creative workshops that we engage in, by deliberately focusing on things for the purpose of creating a positive emotion in us, and for giving our attention to things that we want.

So when we engage in a creative workshop we are deliberately focusing on things for the purpose of attracting them in our experience.  If we want to attract fun and exciting romantic relationships, instead of relationships that have been tiresome and draining, we focus on a creative workshop where we imagine the fun relationship as more real in our experience.  If we do this properly, where we can gradually believe the imagery that we focus on, that made up the inner reality in our creative workshop, then it can slowly become an outer reality of our own making.

So the process of the creative workshop is about being more deliberate about what we give our attention to in our minds, since technically, we are always in a creative workshop all the time by what we give our attention too, instead this time, our creative workshop is more deliberate by imagining what we want as more real.
