Does visualisation work?

by inspire on September 23, 2008

Jiminy CricketI once heard a story where Walt Disney’s son and one of his business associates stood before disneyland just after it was completed. They stood in awe of what was created and felt hugely proud to be part of it (Walt Disney had died a number of years before it was complete). The business associate turned to Walt Disneys son and said “isent it a pity that Walt is not here to see it all“. Walts son paused for a second and replied “it’s because Walt did SEE it that it is here!”

Walt Disney didn’t just sit a visualise disneyland every morning and wait for it to happen, though. No, he visualised it and took action towards turning his vision into a reality. So we also have to take action. But let’s suppose he didn’t have a vision. What would he have created? What action would he have taken? Who knows? Without a clear vision of what he wanted to create how could he have created it or acted on it?

We could find many many examples of people who have achieved alot with their lives and I would say in each case we would find a vision or purpose of some sort. Yet isent it amazing that some people can synically laugh at others who are trying to better themselves with a vision, even a vision like buying a new house or losing weight or getting a new job. Isent it even more amazing that they’d do it in front of children which can have the affect of closing the childs mind to some of the inherent creative power that life offers us. Of course you can be sure that the same creative door was closed on them in their own childhood and now perhaps unknowingly they pass on this limited thinking to the next generation.

One of Disney’s visions was to “make people happy”. When I first heard this I asked myself – “did he help make me happy?” Absolutely!!! What brilliant films and characters he created. Has Disney ever helped make you happy? Luckily for us all Walt Disney’s mind was never closed to limited visionless thinking!

What is your vision? What are you creating? It doesent have to be some far off distant vision – what is your vision for today?

If you were to create your ideal day – what would it look like and how would it feel? If for no other reason but to explore your inherent creative power have a go at it. Be the Source of whatever you wish to create and you’ll be amazed. If you want more love, give more love. If you want more wealth, give more wealth. If you want support from others, give more support to others. Suspend your disbelief and give it a go.

See and feel what you wish to create in your life and surround yourself with people who believe in you even if only in your vision. And remember all the beauty, joy and abundance you’d ever like to experience is all around you and within you NOW.

It’s also worth remembering in this current economic climate that “the best things in life are FREE!”, after all how much does a bit of encouragement or a smile cost?” And finally its also worth remembering that Walk Disney almost went bankrupt 12 times in his career, only for his brother supporting him on the way! Hasent the world benefitted greatly from such vision, determination and a helping hand!

Here’s some Disney magic to enhance your day:

Carpe Diem!
