Is that how you see yourself?
I’ve been teaching the Law of Attraction for a few years and one of the first lessons is about visualizing what you want. Our thoughts have the power to create what we want and if we can see ourselves in the picture we want to see we add an energetic boost to our already revved up thoughts. I have struggled with accepting myself for most of my life and how I visualized myself was far from lovely. I had seen myself through the lens of not good enough for as long as I could remember. When I discovered I had the power to flip these thoughts, I didn’t waste any time. I chose to see myself as I wanted to become – infusing my thoughts of my health, my beauty, and my kick ass creative force. In turn, I was able to lose weight, feel better, start (and stop) a running program, become teaching hundreds of people how to harness the power of their thoughts. I was able to see myself as lovely.
Before we go further, take a minute with me. How DO you see yourself? I hope you see yourself as beautiful and strong. But if you don’t, what is the vision you are holding creating in your life?
One of the best examples of visualization is athletes. They see themselves hitting the ball, or running the marathon, or swimming the laps in record time far before they begin acting on it. They see their success and they make it happen. Same with us. It doesn’t just work for our success. If we are seeing ourselves as anything other than a vision of loveliness we make that happen as well.
I’m a divorce attorney as well as the Founder of Project Positive Change and I see it time and again in my practice. The people who visualize the worst outcome for themselves will be given the worst in spades. I had one client who was full of negativity about her case, her job prospects, and her visitation schedule. She was filled with bitterness long after her case was finished. She felt her life was “shit” and with each passing month she was proved right. Despite a high IQ she couldn’t get a job. Applicances broke down. Car was damaged. Her ex -husband moved leaving her with all the responsibility of their mentally challenged son. She couldn’t turn the tide of her life because she couldn’t see her life any differently.
In another case, I had a client who I had told in no uncertain terms he was not going to get what he wanted. At the conclusion of his case, two years later, he proved me wrong by being awarded each and every thing he wanted. Including custody of his children. When speaking with him later, he shared with me he had been visualizing the case turning out just as it did since we first spoke. It didn’t matter if I believed it would happen or not. His vision stayed clear and he created it.
If you don’t yet see the power of how you see yourself, try this exercise with me, see yourself as being the vision you must desire.
- How would you act differently if you were that person?
- How would you interact with the world around you?
- How would you treat yourself?
- What would you say to yourself when no one was listening?
- Would you be respectful to your body?
- How do you feel?
If can begin to look into the mirror of what you want you can create this along with taking actions consistent with this vision. Yes, taking action! I wish it were as easy as just visualizing! Even those Olympic Athletes have to practice.
It takes clarity about what you want. It takes belief in your new vision for yourself. It takes consistency. And it takes you. You are the powerful creator of your vision.

Love, Light, and Positive Change!
