The world is exactly what we think it is ….and the way we think about it creates our world. If you’re familiar with the concept of manifesting or co-creation then you may resonate with what I’m about to share.
Depending upon what you believe…..you experience the world through your five senses according to your belief systems. Fascinating to observe when working with clients or with hypnosis show volunteers. For example, in a show I may tell volunteers to believe that the number two does not exist. With this new belief they create that reality – ie two does not exist. That continues with things like – being stuck to a chair, not remembering names, feeling different emotions.
Similarly, in a client situation, hypnosis and NLP can be used to change belief systems and hence the way that the client thinks. Think differently, act differently and get different results. Think of people becoming non smokers, losing weight, becoming more confident etc.
One process to used to do that is the “what if” or movie” technique. In this process the client is lead to create the ideal outcome in all its aspects – sight, sound, feelings, taste and smell. First with a picture, then enhancing each aspect, making the picture three D, turning it into a movie. After perfecting the movie the client is then asked to step into their character in the movie and live it as if it is their reality. This is repeated and “anchored” in so that they can access it any time. The client then manifests this new reality.
I did hear feedback that this is faking it. My answer to that is this – everyone one of us does this each day with our imagination. We imagine that something is going to happen – good or bad – when we feel it with great emotion we tend to move towards vreating that reality.
Now, where does Ruby Sparks fit in with all of this? The story goes along these lines. A young man writes out his one page story of a love affair with a beautiful young woman called Ruby. Absolutely fictitious. Then, she appears in his life, just as he wrote down. During the movie he learns that whatever he writes down and believes tends to occur. He wrote down that she spoke fluent French and hey presto – she speaks fluent french.
Do you feel a bit playful today? Think of something that you would love to have in your life. Create that movie “as if” it is your reality. Step into the movie and live it. Play that movie over and over again. Write down the story. Bring all the positive emotions into this that you can.
Just like putting the cake into the oven or planting seeds in the ground – when the appropriate baking time or growing time has occurred you will have your result.
Have a brilliant day wherever you are.
