Fantasy, Visualization and Meditation

Fantasy And Visualization

Fantasy is a form of visualization, meditation and positive thinking.

Visualization helped all of us when we were children as we spent a good portion of our time thinking on what we wanted without limitation. As we grew older, people and institutions in our lives and societal norms stripped many of us of this pleasurable and valuable skill. Next time you are with a child, take the time and effort to observe how they respond to their world with faith that all will work to their betterment. They never question their ability to have what they want and derive pleasure from.

We all yearn to have those skills to support us in creating the lives we picture for ourselves and our families. The movie called “The Secret” was all about the using visualization to manifest (i.e. activate the “Law of Attraction”) our personal desires. It was such a driving desire of many that the movie benefited to the tune of $65 million in direct box office sales. That’s a lot of repressed desire to find the skills of the “inner child” wouldn’t you say? The Master Keys through the MKMMA teaches many of these skills to those who commit and persistent.

So who in our society have been able to maintain their childlike abilities to envision and go after their desires? If you notice, those who are the more creative “right brain” thinkers (musicians, artist and entrepreneurs), seem to understand this and embed the instructions, nearly in code, in lyrics, images, visionary stories of creating new products or services and in movie scripts. For example, the video above of the Earth Wind and Fire’s song ¬†entitled Fantasy. Read the lyrics while listening to it and decide if it does not pull at something in your heart that makes you believe in you… My fallback is always to music such as this magical piece. Music has been such a large part of my early years and still carries the emotional charge I need to power my affirmations and positive thoughts on a daily basis.

You too have a particular “tone” like a tuning fork of a particular size, certain songs infuse power into your dreams and inspire you with their lyrics. I recommend finding these harmonious musical gifts and keep them available for those days when you need more energy, more persistence to go after your fantasies.

Back in Scroll VI of Og Mandino’s Greatest Salesman in the World, we were taught how to master our emotions. Remember… “If I feel depressed, I Sing”? As just such a tool, I have created my own playlist of Youtube videos to energize me when I need that kick in the butt to “plunge ahead”.

Excerpt from Scroll VI

If I feel depressed, I will sing.
If I feel sad, I will laugh.
If I feel ill, I will double my labor.
If I feel fear, I will plunge ahead.
If I feel inferior, I will wear new garments.
If I feel uncertain, I will raise my voice.
If I feel poverty, I will think of wealth to come.
If I feel incompetent, I will remember past success.
If I feel insignificant, I will remember my goals.

So, how perfect is it that this last line says “If I feel insignificant, I will remember my Goals.” This leads me back to visualization and object of our desire. I am becoming more childlike (I’m sure my wife would agree) in this respect and pick away the cement layered on my years of societies training, manners and constraints of externally imposed duty. The golden Buddha that lies beneath is my goal to expose and share; my authentic vision of who I am, what value I bring to every relationship and to every venture.

I am a self-direct human being with dreams and aspirations destined to leave a legacy of thoughts and shared experience to benefit all who are in tune with them or have resonance and alignment with the way they experience this world. Hopefully, if these words strike a familiar tune for you, you will share this with others who may also think, dream and fantasize as I do of a life of continuous development and self-improvement.

Fantasy ~ Earth Wind and Fire

Every man has a place
In his heart there’s a space
And the world can’t erase his fantasies
Take a ride in the sky
On our ship, fantasize
All your dreams will come true right away

And we will live together
Until the twelfth of never
Our voices will ring forever, as one

Every thought is a dream
Rushing by in a stream
Bringing life to the kingdom of doing
Take a ride in the sky
On our ship, fantasize
All your dreams will come true miles away

Our voices will ring together
Until the twelfth of never
We all will live love forever, as one

Come to see victory
In a land called fantasy
Loving life, a new degree
Bring your mind to everlasting liberty

As one, come to see victory
In a land called fantasy
Loving life for you and me
To behold, to your soul is ecstasy

You will find other kind
That has been in search of you
Many lives has brought you to
Recognize, it’s your life now in review

And as you stay for the play
Fantasy has in store for you
A glowing light will see you through
It’s your day, shining day
All your dreams come true

As you glide in your stride
With the wind as you fly away
Give a smile from your lips and say
I’m free, yes I’m free, now I’m on my way

Come to see victory
In a land called fantasy
Loving life for you and me
To behold, to your soul is ecstasy

You will find other kind
That has been in search of you
Many lives has brought you to
Recognize, it’s your life now in review
