Visualization

1 2 3 6

Unplug and Unwind

So this is the last simple thing that I have rewritten. It’s the one I have had the most issues with, and it’s also really quite long and not actually simple at all. This is what the original said, ” Before you fall asleep, visualize chords connecting you to everybody you met that day, and send their energy back to them.”

I pulled out my trusty Synonym Finder, a giant book that I love to just read sometimes… LOL… I love words. More on that in a day or two. Anyway, it turned into a long and involved, once again complicated and convoluted thing. Here’s what I came up with:

In advance of descending into slumber,
Envision the bonds
Tying you to those encountered during the day,
And then disconnect, release,
And return their influence.

But it occurred to me that we might not want to disconnect our bonds with those we live with, those we love, those who support us and help us, those we help and support… And maybe that’s why I have so much trouble with this one.

With that in mind, I came up with:

Before you hit the sack, unplug, unwind, and let all that shit go.

I like it. You know what shit you need to let go of. So, just let it go.

Confusingly Convoluted Simplicity

Continuing with my rephrasing of our Five Simple Things, today we have #4, which was really hard to totally and completely change. In the process of rewriting it, I came up with a wonderfully, confusing and convoluted, long and involved rendering of : “Every time you use keys, visualize they are unlocking opportunities to get you closer to your dreams.”

Here’s what I came up with:

From this moment on,
When making use of a tool for easy access,
Picture in your mind’s eye
That you have just released and expanded
Favorable chances
To draw ever nearer to infinite possibilities
For health, happiness, prosperity,
Or what ever it is you wish to achieve.

Sometimes simple is just better… well, actually, simple usually is better, and the simplest way to say this is:

“When unlocking something, imagine you are unlocking your dreams.”

So, that was somewhat enlightening. I like the long, convoluted, complicated phrasing that really gets my mind running all over the place. But I think that’s because having my mind running all over the place is familiar and comfortable. It’s my preferred mode of avoiding difficult feelings and situations.

However, making it simple might be really useful as well.

Which makes me wonder, what if I kept it simple inside my brain, for at least a small part of the day… what would that look like? What if it looked like me actually being in the actual moment in my actual body… Wow! Imagine that! And what if everything I said, or did, was just simple. Maybe it would be easy and simple. Maybe it would be fun to be simple… I don’t know. Might be worth a try!

Scintillating Resplendent and Brilliant

Continuing my exploration of what each of our Five Simple Things would look like if it was worded differently, I came up with a really fun alternative to the boringly ordinary thing #2, which is: “When showering, visualize shimmering gold water with protective light filling up your aura.”

I like this one a lot better! It’s very dramatic…

Upon inundation with water
In the bath,
Conjure up scintillating resplendent brilliance
Stuffing the atmosphere surrounding you
With a shining guardian.

Doesn’t this just make you want to jump into the shower or bathtub right now? And if not that, what if you went outside and asked the benevolent sun to be your shining guardian? And what if shimmering sparkles followed you wherever you went? What if everything you touch sparkled and shined because you touched it? And what if everything you said and did brought a lovely brilliance into the situation?

Asleep On The Job

The fifth of our Five Simple Things is the following: “Before you fall asleep, visualize chords connecting you to everybody you met that day, and send their Energy back to them.” I have been able to remember this one exactly ONE time in the last 15 days. Just ONE time!

And, interestingly, I am totally blocked when it comes to making a bunch of different stickers. My biggest problem with stickers for the other four was making myself stop. I made way too many. This time around I made exactly two. Yes, two.  Not 5, not 10, not 20… I only made two. Here’s the other one:

So, what the heck? The idea is an excellent one. I love the concept. Why can’t I remember to do it? Anyone else having similar problems? Any ideas? Suggestions? Insights?

Heading Out

The fourth of our Five Simple Things , ” Every time you use keys, visualize they are unlocking opportunities to get you closer to your dreams.” has been difficult for me in that I rarely lock anything other than my car, and these days I’m not actually driving to very many places. So, I did think of a number of different ideas related to locks and doors.

  • See every open door as a new opportunity.
  • When you walk out the door, open your mind to new ideas.
  • Every time you walk into a room, imagine that you are walking into the best thing ever.
  • When you walk out the door, open yourself up to new opportunities.
  • When opening a jar think about opening up to new ideas, experiences, and knowledge.
  • When opening a door, think about moving forward with your goals, ideas, and/or life.
  • Every time you walk out of a door, imagine that you are walking into a grand adventure.
  • When you pick up your keys, know that within you is the key to happiness.

As you can see, I also made some stickers. Which was a lot of fun. And in the process of making them, I ended up with “Every time you walk into a door, imagine you are walking into a grand adventure, or even something wonderful.” LOL…

And then I realized that this is actually a really good idea!

We’ve all had the experience of hitting a wall… or running into a doorway that we thought would be open to us, but instead it is not… I have had this happen to me a lot!

And I thought, what if, instead of thinking it as a setback or a road block, I saw it as a grand adventure… as something wonderful? How different would my life be? And what are my current blocks? What walls have I walked into recently? And how does it feel to think of them as wonderful or grand or an adventure?

What about you? What is your grand adventure?

Being Productive

I’ve been going through our Five Simple Things one at a time and really looking at them. This morning we have thing #3 which says: “Bless your morning coffee/tea with vibes of productive and creativity.” That is what our original idea said, but I changed it to “vibes of productivity and creativity” because it didn’t sound quite right. Now, today, I’m wondering if it should have said “vibes of productive creativity.” What do you guys think?

My issue with this one is that “being productive” always seems to get in the way of “getting creative,” at least for me. And the whole issue of “being productive” is one of my go-to ways to avoid any kind of introspection, or true enjoyment of the present moment.

We live in a country where “gross national product” is way more important than “gross national happiness” which is kind of sad, I think. Right now, in this moment in time, the production of goods and services is even more important than the health and safety of our children. So… like I said… “productive” is a trigger word for me.

Not sure how to get around it… here are some ideas.

  • Bless your morning coffee with vibes of energy and enthusiasm.
  • Infuse your morning coffee with vibes of love and light.
  • Allow your morning cup of coffee to infuse you with magick and miracles.
  • Smile into your morning coffee and know that everything will be OK.

And what about if you don’t drink coffee, but drink tea instead?

  • Steep your cup of tea in vibes of energy and enthusiasm.
  • Infuse your cup of tea with vibes of love and light.
  • Allow your lovely cup of tea to fill you with magick and miracles.
  • Smile as you drink your morning tea and know that everything will be OK.

But what if you don’t drink coffee or tea in the mornings? What? Now that’s a concept that eludes me completely. I wouldn’t even know how to wake up and face my day if I didn’t have a nice cup of something hot and comforting. But here is one idea:

  • What if the first thing you pop into your mouth in the morning, is amazing and wonderful, and will fill you with vibes of energy and enthusiasm?

So, guys, I made a bunch of stickers to go with today’s post, but I didn’t go overboard with it like I did yesterday… OK well maybe I did… anyway, enjoy!

Cleaning Up

The second item on our Five Simple Things that we are trying to remember to do every day is to visualize shimmering gold water filling the aura with protective light. I like this idea but… and the but is that I can’t seem to do it properly. So, I started exploring similar but different ideas to see if I could find something that feels easier and better for me. This is what I came up with so far:

  • When showering visualize shimmering gold water washing all your worries away.
  • When showering visualize shimmering silver water washing away all negative vibes.
  • When showering visualize a shimmering water rainbow healing all your hurt and pain.
  • When showering visualize a shimmering water rainbow enfolding your body in love and light.
  • When showering visualize beautiful shimmering water filling your aura with love and light.
  • When showering visualize beautiful shimmering water flooding your body with love and light.

So then, because I love playing with graphics, I made a bunch of colorful stickers. Here are some of my favorite ones. I hope you find at least one or two that you really like.

Geez… that’s a lot! And there are a bunch more that I decided not to upload. I always go overboard. LOL. It’s my super power. 🙂

Adding To Our Five Things

I thought it might be fun to compile a list of all of the “other” simple things that we have talked about and/or shared up until now. I find that when I am paying attention and thinking of more ideas, it helps me to stay focused on the project, and not wander off into forgetfulness.

So how about it guys. Here’s a list of everything we have so far, plus a few more that I came up with while working on this post. I’d love to make this into a really really long list. Any body have any other ideas?

  • Every morning say “Thank You” three times before your feet hit the floor.
  • When you turn your key in the ignition, tell your car how much you appreciate it.
  • When showering, visualize shimmering gold water with protective light filling up your aura.
  • When washing your hands, imagine that you are “washing my hands of…..” and then think of whatever you would like to let go of.
  • As you wash your hands, visualize washing away any bad karma, bad vibes, or negativity.
  • Write something uplifting or inspirational on all your bottled water so you can be inspired as you go through your day.
  • If you dry brush your skin before a shower, imagine brushing your troubles away.
  • If you use a shower oil, visualize the oil as sanctifying the whole cleansing process.
  • Bless your morning coffee/tea with vibes of productivity and creativity.
  • Look into your morning cup of coffee/tea and say, “Thank the Gods! Now everything is going to be OK.”
  • When heating food or beverages in the microwave, imagine that it is being thoroughly and completely infused with love and light.
  • Every time you use keys, visualize they are unlocking opportunities to get you closer to your dreams.
  • When opening a jar think about opening up to new ideas, experiences, and knowledge.
  • When opening a door, think about moving forward with my goals, ideas, and/or life.
  • Every time you walk out of a door, imagine that you are walking into a grand adventure.
  • Every time you look into a mirror, say three times, “You are magickal.”
  • Whenever you look into a mirror, say “You are wonderful, amazing, and I love you.”
  • When changing out of your work clothes into your “home” clothes, imagine that you are dismantling any stress or drama that might have followed you home.
  • As you change out of your day clothes into your pajamas, imagine that you are taking off the cares and worries of the day and putting them away.
  • Before you fall asleep, visualize chords connecting you to everybody you met that day, and send their Energy back to them.

Letting Go

“Before you fall asleep,
visualize chords connecting you to everybody you met that day,
and send their Energy back to them.”

What a great idea! And no matter how hard I try, I cannot remember to do this. I am now contemplating hanging a note from the ceiling over my bed. Part of the problem is that I have a bad habit of falling asleep on the couch and then stumbling off to bed at some point late into the night.

One idea I had was to visualize and disconnect those chords whenever I get home from work, or the store, or wherever I may have gone during the day. As I get out of the car, do the disconnect. I could leave myself a note in my car, which would help me to remember. The drawback to this is that I don’t go very many places these days.

Alternatively, I could post a note on my front door, and do the disconnect before I go into the house. This would prevent me taking “stuff” home with me. But again, these days I’m not leaving home very often.

If anyone has any suggestions or ideas for how to make this a regular practice, I’m definitely interested.
