WEEK 07 – Visualization

Week 7 of this journey has been interesting.  The word which stands out in my mind the most from this week is the word Visualization, which as Haanel describes it, is simply the process of taking mental pictures.  It is something that we started learning how to do a few weeks ago.  What I learned this week was:

  1. Idealization is the 1st of 3 steps in the Master key process. The word, according to one definition from Webster, means to hold up or represent something as perfect.  For purposes of this system we are learning, Haanel says in 7-6 “before sowing any seed you want to know what the harvest is to be.  This is idealization.”  For me the harvest is having my dream home in the Smokies of TN where (I quote from my DMP) “it is electrifying that I now have the ability to work when I want, where I want, and how much I want.  I know spend my time on things I enjoy, such as editing more than 12,000 family photos, doing some woodworking, writing more poetry, and traveling with my wife as she does her landscape photography.”  This is the end-game for me… my picture of the idealized life.
  2. Visualization, according to our definition here, is simply the process of taking mental pictures that will be the mold from which we construct our future. Currently, as part of my daily sit, I picture that dream home in the Smokies of TN and I go through the mental scene that unfolds as if a realator was showing me the property.  I start with how it looks as you pull into the driveway, how the house is laid out.  In my mind I describe each of the rooms.. the furnituture, the wall hangings, the view out the windows, the out building where my wood working area, and my wife’s studio area is located.  I have even gone as far as to find a PDF file of a home plan so that I can visualize every detail of how the home will look.
  3. Materialization is the 3rd step, which is where the object of our desire becomes a part of our “world without”. Haanel explains that this happens because the power of “thought leads to action and action will develop methods, methods will develop friends, and friends will bring about circumstances” (7-7) which leads to materialization.

All of this is related in a natural sequence of Earnest Desire bringing about Confident Expectation that if reinforced by Firm Demand will cause the manifestation of what I desire.  The strong feeling is the Earnest Desire, the thought is the Confident Expectation, and my will is the Firm Demand. (Haanel’s 7-18)

One last thing.  It seems to me the whole point of the “Do It Now” mantra is to ready oneself to take actions on new ideas as they are presented to oneself.  This week I had a “Eureka” moment.  My bad leg is making it more difficult for me to knock on the required number of doors each day, and so it came to me that one of my great skills in life has been my excellent programming capabilities, especially as applied to automating mundane procedures in Microsoft’s Excel spreadsheet program.  Therefore, beginning tomorrow I will begin spending a minimum of 10 hours/week on building a website to market my programming services along with the construction of a game plan to allow it’s launch by September 15th, 2018.

    I am inspired by your practical application of Idealization, Visualization, and Materialization. Tells me I need to practice these strategies and not let them collect dust
