Creative Visualization for Abundance and Success

By Margot Huff – When it comes to abundance, creative visualization is so very important.  Without it, being able to attract abundance into your life is practically impossible.  Creative visualization can help you improve any area of your life with which you feel needs improvement.  You will have, do and be better at anything you visualize.  You’ll attract new, inspiring people and opportunities into your life. This really is a life changing practice….and it starts with your imagination

Creative visualization is using your imagination to visualize the life you want to create. There is nothing new or unusual about creative visualization. You already use it daily; in fact, every minute of every day. It is the power of imagination, the basic creative energy of the universe, which you use constantly, whether consciously or not.  In the past, we have all unconsciously used our power of creative visualization.  Because of the negative concepts about life which have been ingrained in us since childhood, we have automatically and unconsciously expected and imagined lack, limitation and difficulties to be a big part of life; and that is exactly what we have created for ourselves.girlmeditatingonthesunset_0

The Difference Between Daydreams and Creative Visualization

When you daydream, you are experiencing pleasant visionary distraction of the mind; a  mild, wishful creation of the imagination, a pleasant fantasy, and that is as far as it goes. Comparing a daydream to creative visualization is like comparing a fluffy little kitten to a fierce lioness. Creative visualization goes so much further.  With creative visualization, you need to completely immerse yourself into this projection from the imagination and infuse it with positive emotions.  As with meditation, you should find a quiet place away from all distractions.  Once you have the visualization in your mind, include as much sensual vibrancy as you can.  See the deep blue sky, hear the birds chirping, smell the orange blossom, feel the soft grass beneath your feet.  The most important of this visualization – infuse it with deep, positive emotions.

With  your imagination, you can “rewire” your subconscious to help you become happier, healthier, more creative,  abundant and confident;  or achieve almost any other goal  for which you aim.  Your subconscious mind is so powerful, it can help you live the life you’ve always wanted — a fulfilling life  with success, happiness, excitement and so much natural motivation that you jump out of bed every morning, thrilled to be alive, and revitalized by the inspiration of achieving your biggest dreams…  abundant dreams that you deserve.

How Creative Visualization Works

There have been over 200 studies showing that visualization improves everything from your memory to physical skills and productivity…and that’s just the start.  Because the use of you imagination “feels” real to your nervous system, creative visualization works quickly to impact you at the subconscious level.  What that means is that you can use it to intentionally and effectively improve any and all areas of your life.

Success and Abundance with Creative Visualization

Creative visualization can help you improve any area of your life.  It can help you attract the experiences and success you need to achieve abundance, even if you seem to attract lack and scarcity, or sabotage your efforts to improve your life.  It will help you attain enormous gains in abundance and success.  And it’s so much easier than you could ever imagine!

Have you used creative visualization in your life?  What positive and abundant successes have you had with it?  How do you feel it can be used to make your life more abundant? Leave a comment below and share your experiences.

As I Dream of a Life of Abundance

By Margot Huff – Another day…another dream! I just woke from a nap. Lo’ and behold!  I remember another dream of abundance I have had, which doesn’t happen often…at least not until recently. Maybe, it’s because of my concentration on my ideal of abundance and what it means to me.

What type of Abundance do You Dream of?

Many of us have been engaging in a tremendous amount of concentration on abundance in the past few years; whether it’s dreams, meditation or hypnosis. What does it mean to each of us? For some, it has to do with spiritual abundance; for others, it means financial; And yet, others concentrate on abundant health or relationships. I would dream, concentrate on and wish for an abundant life which encompasses all aspects of life – spiritual, financial, health, relationships.

Spiritual Abundance

Prayer

Prayer

Is there a spiritual emptiness inside of you that you just can’t seem fill? Is there something missing in your relationship with God, Spirit, the Universe?  If you can see yourself right now in any of this, just know these feelings are not unique to you.  These feelings are experienced by most, if not all of us, at one time or another. Taking some time each day to quiet your mind will help tremendously in this area. And always, always remember to be grateful for your life. The more you are grateful, the more you’ll attract in your life for which to be grateful.

Financial Abundance

Money

Money

Who doesn’t want to earn enough money to have at least the creature comforts in life? Who doesn’t want to earn much more? I do! I love going away for long weekends, and would like to do it more often.  I would love to have a mountain home and a beach home. I love the thought of being able to help family and friends in financial need. I would love to be able to donate a significant amount of money to charities of my choice. No matter your financial status now, always, always remember to be grateful for the money you do have. The more you are grateful, the more you’ll attract ways to earn more money for which to be grateful.

Abundant Health

Healthy

Healthy

“Eat healthily, sleep well, breathe deeply, move harmoniously.”   Jean-Pierre Barral

Abundant health is such an important factor in the life of an abundant woman, the lack of which can seriously impact the joy of living…. Need I say more?   This is one aspect of abundance in which I find have especially asked for help from God, Spirit, the Universe.  Having been diagnosed with diabetes, degenerative disc disorder, severe depression, sciatica, chronic tendonitis, fibromyalgia and chronic pain, just to name a few, I was being overmedicated and lived in a fog for a few years. I finally took matters away from the doctors and put them in my own hands. I am happy to say I  now have my diabetes under control with diet alone, have weaned myself off of antidepressants, muscle relaxers and four other medications.  Although I may not be the poster child for perfect health, I am feeling better and younger than I have in a  very long time and plan on continuing self improvement until the day I can once again become gainfully employed and give my disability income back to the government.  I am so very grateful for my improved health and disposition. No matter your health situation, be grateful for the positive aspects of being alive and breathing. The more you are grateful, the more good health you’ll attract for which to be grateful.

Abundant Relationships

Relationship

Relationship

After 31 years, I am very fortunate to have a husband who still loves me passionately. I have In-laws who are the best.  I am blessed with good friends and a loving family.  Do not think  it all comes easy.  As anyone with good, strong relationships knows, it takes work and perseverance  to make any relationship work.  And there are always bumps in the road.  To maintain an abundant relationship, it is so very important to acknowledge the positive aspects of the other person, and focus on those more than anything. Everyone has some negative pieces in their personalities.  To recognize them and accept the person as they are is the key component to keeping the relationship strong and thriving.  Remember, as they have negative aspects to their personalities, you also do; and those that love you accept these. So, be grateful for your friends and loved ones. The more you are grateful, the more abundant relationships you will attract into your life for which to be grateful.

Blessings,

Margot Huff

 

 

Follow Me In My Dream of Abundance

By Margot Huff – So, follow me as I share my dream of abundance. I woke up this morning, remembering this wonderful dream of being an abundant woman, in every sense of the phrase! I sat on the edge of the bed, thanking the Universe and my Higher Power for starting my day in such a beautiful way.  My dream started with me waking to a beautiful, sunny morning.  Birds were chirping in the trees so melodiously (is that a real word?) just outside my open door to our 2nd floor verandah (yes, open).

Billowing sheers

Billowing sheers

There was a soft, gentle breeze coming through the screen door, making the sheers billow ever so slightly into my room….(Hey!  Don’t grimace!  It IS my dream, after all!)  I threw back the sheets, sat on the edge of the bed, thanking the Universe and my Higher Power for starting my day in such a beautiful way (didn’t I just say that?)  and hopped (well, truth be told…more like tripped) out of our oversized king sized bed to face another gorgeous day as an abundant woman.   My partner (I’d say husband, but I’ve had one of those for over 30 years already) was downstairs brewing coffee and making breakfast. I could smell the fresh brewed coffee and cooked bacon (which had no fat or cholesterol), wafting up to our spacious loft bedroom (with the open window).  Did I mention that the bedding, sheers, and huge, soft rug on the natural pine floor were all white?

The dog snoozing at the foot of the bed was white too (can you tell I looooove white?).  So….back to the snoozing bacon, I mean dog….she awoke and came up to me for soft doggie kisses on my face (did I mention she was white…I mean white white?)  Ok, well anyway, she gave me these soft doggie kisses with her delicate pink tongue (no dog breath from this girl) before I slipped into my thin, white silk robe that matched my thin, white silk negligee and flew down the stairs to greet my husband (oops, I mean partner) with a loving kiss from my ever so soft, wrinkle-free lips. He told me he gave our cook the morning off as he served me fresh squeezed orange juice, fresh brewed coffee, perfectly cooked bacon (which had no fat or cholesterol),  soft and fluffy scrambled eggs with a perfectly toasted english muffin slathered in sweet, creamy butter.

Our driver (all decked out in white) waited outside, polishing the hood of our iridescent white limousine whilst I leisurely ate breakfast, showered and dressed for our 15 minute drive from our  lovely, country estate through the forest to the antique mall to purchase any and all antiques I chose, which would be delivered the very same day back to our lovely, country estate.

Sleepy Dog

Unfortunately, that’s when my  3 dogs woke me with wet, sloppy dog breath kisses, shedding their red hair on me, my sheets, pillow and comforter (which I can never purchase in white because I have 3 dirty dogs). But I love them so much. I also very much love my husband who does have the coffee brewing. And, although we do not have the cook, driver, limo or country estate  (yet), I feel so abundant and grateful for what I do have.

So, with that, I believe I’ll end this post, go get some fresh coffee and read the Sunday paper with my husband while the dogs curl up around our feet.  I hope you also have a fabulously abundant day!

An Abundant Life…

By Margot Huff – Another day….another day!  How can life be abundant when all you think about is getting through another day?  As life goes flying by in the fast lane, how are we to stop and smell the roses?  Are you in the right place at the right time?  Do you feel tuned in, tapped in and turned on?  Do you feel happy, joyous and free?  Is life wondrous and high flying?  Are you vibrationally aligned with the Universe?  Does it matter?

Of course, it does! But even in the life of an abundant woman, there are not so good days.  We are, after all, human…some days, more human than others. So, I woke up this morning and took the time to to let God and the Universe know how grateful I am for this new day. I stretched and jumped out of bed, slipped on the pretty, new rug I just bought and ended up sprawled on the floor. Well, I just stayed down for a couple of minutes, caught my breath and hauled myself up on the side of the bed, rubbed my backside – that’s going to leave a mark!  So much for pretty, new rug!  Note to self: buy rug grippers when going out today.

I’m still in a good mood though!  A peek out the curtains shows a beautiful bluebird day, perfect for that trip to the beach with friends! Crash, boom…was that thunder?? In the morning? Here in Florida? A peek through the curtains on the other side of the room shows a big, black thunderstorm headed in my direction.  Guess that trip to the beach may be put on hold for awhile, but not to worry! It’s still early.  Early storm means early clearing, right?  Well……not so much.  A visit to the handy dandy weather website shows a big glob of big, black thunderstorms all around the area!

So, I think I’ll just call my friends and invite them over for an indoor beach party instead. After making calls though, 3 of them had too much fun at a party the night before and the other two just want to lounge around in bed with a good book. I certainly can’t fault them for that.

And the day just seems to go downhill from there.  The dogs and husband are grumpy because of being stuck indoors, the washing machine doesn’t want to work right either. Breakfast gets burnt and the house smells like burned food all day long.  But you know what? Even when everything seems to be going wrong in your day, remember that you have a day that does end.  Tomorrow is another day. You could be at the right place at the right time again! End your day on a good note.  Be sure to thank God and the Universe for having a day. Maybe it began on a high note, or had a special moment in it, or was quiet and undisturbed.  Always remember that in the life of an abundant woman, even a bad day is something to be thankful for.

Do You Visualize Prosperity and Abundance? You Should!

By Margot Huff – If you are not visualizing prosperity and abundance, it is going to be much  more difficult to attain, if at all possible. Visualization, especially creative visualization, is the secret to bringing about the attitude of  abundance and prosperity you need in order to attract even more.

Normally, people associate visualization with just imagining.  It is true that without the human imagination, visualization would be impossible; but, that doesn’t mean that you are just imagining.   Without human thought, creation would be impossible. Thought is more than just synapses and electrical signals jumping around in your grey matter – it’s the very stuff that animates your life and the world around you.

A CREATIVE VISUALIZATION PRACTICEindoor meditation

Visualization is quite different from plain imagining or fantasy. Are you ready to try it? Good – here’s how it works. First find a quiet place where you can practice visualization. An ideal location would be a quiet spot in the house that is cool and has low lighting.

You don’t need extra distractions, so if you can go to a room without any kind of noise, that would be ideal. Now, focus on your idea of abundance and prosperity, and what you want the most at this time.  Put that image at the very center of this visualization and dwell on it. Feel it!  Jump into the image as if you already have whatever is in that image. Immerse yourself in the image. Have fun with it, enjoy and share it. Make this visualization a complete and total experience. Do this for about 5 to 10 minutes, then slowly open your eyes to end the creative visualization.

I feel the best time for visualization is in the morning after you have been awake long enough to know you won’t go  back to sleep, but early enough that you haven’t begun your morning routine.  Visualization of abundance and prosperity is a great way to start and keep an awesome day.  Although I feel morning is the best time, any time during the day will also work, and doing this visualization more than once a day would be spectacular!

How do you use creative visualization to attract abundance and prosperity?

 

Free Abundance Meditations

By Margot Huff – As I search the internet for inforation on unlimited abundance, I am finding a multitude of websites and videos regarding free abundance meditations – free abundance meditations; free meditations for abundance; free guided abundance meditations; free guided meditations for wealth, prosperity and abundance; and so on, and so on.

Meditation is  focusing 100% of your attention in one area. The practice comes with many  mental health benefits; a few include increased concentration, decreased anxiety, and a general feeling of happiness and well-being.  Now, I know meditation works, as I have and do practice it myself;  but, how are you to do that in order to achieve abundance?  I suppose it would depend on your definition of abundance.  Could it be:

Quiet Meditation

Quiet Meditation

 

  • Inner joy and contentment?
  • The creation of your ideal reality by manifesting your idea of abundance?
  • Knowing how to transcend what most people think is impossible?
  • Wealth beyond what you ever imagined?
  • Power and influence over people?
  • Vibrant health and freedom from disease and illness?
  • Effortlessly living your life purpose?
  • A combination of some or all of these?

What should you focus on first?

According to The Buddhist Center “Meditation is a means of transforming the mind. Buddhist meditation practices are techniques that encourage and develop concentration, clarity, emotional positivity, and a calm seeing of the true nature of things. By engaging with a particular meditation practice you learn the patterns and habits of your mind, and the practice offers a means to cultivate new, more positive ways of being. With regular work and patience these nourishing, focused states of mind can deepen into profoundly peaceful and energized states of mind. Such experiences can have a transformative effect and can lead to a new understanding of life.”

So, before jumping into any sort of meditation for abundance, you must learn to focus in your meditations. All instructions I have ever had used the breath as the first thing on which to focus; and, when any thoughts occur {and they will), acknowledge them and let them go, returning your focus to the breath.

Once you have the ability to focus deeply during meditation, you can then begin to work on abundance meditations. There are a myriad of websites and videos that can help with teaching free abundance meditations. Most of the websites will offer additional abundance meditations for a price, but you should be able to find all you need without spending a dime.  I did!

I look forward to your input and remarks on this and any of my other posts.
