Today I would like to share with you a story of how imagination can create our future reality. And it can manifest even the specific and detail if you desire it to be.
Many years ago in 2005, an old friend of mine told me his story about using his imagination. I had taught him some of my mental techniques for creating the reality you choose by using imagination. So he took my advice and put it to practice. He wanted to get a new girlfriend.
For several weeks, using the specific mental deepening technique and visualization method, he put himself into a deep state of mind and started to enact in his mind a few imaginative scenes. The first scene, he imagined himself sitting in his living room, watching tv with his new girlfriend. Then the next scene, he imagined what kind of hairstyle he liked on a girl. He imagined she was slim, wearing a white tshirt, sitting next to him on the sofa, watching tv. So he did this in his mind over the course of a few weeks.
He was feeling frustrated at the lack of progress after 2 weeks. One day, he went to the library to read. He felt sleepy and he rested his head over his arms crossed on the table, and just closed his eyes. After a while, he was awakened by the sound of someone coming to sit next to him. He turned his head, and saw this girl sitting 2 chairs away from him. The first thing he noticed was, she had the exact same hairstyle that he visualized in his future girlfriend. He thought to himself, this is such a coincidence, just as he had been thinking about this hairstyle, now he sees it right next to him. After a while, the girl asked to borrow his pen, and they started talking. He wasn’t sure if he really liked her, and they started contacting each other as friends.
Well over the next few weeks, the girl started to come over to his house for tea and sometimes joining him for dinner. And they started getting quite close to each other. One night after dinner, he noticed a strange sense of deja vu. There he was, sitting on his sofa watching tv with this girl next to him. The girl was wearing a white tshirt. And on that particular night, she tied her hair exactly the same way as he had been ‘seeing’ in his imagination for weeks! And according to him, the girl was the one making the moves to get close to him all along.
In our mental lab, we create and shape our future reality. Make no mistake about it, when you imagine a goal consistently, you are remolding your world and the people in it. What are we imagining? If your thoughts are all over the place, there’s no focus to create a specific reality or experience. If you are definite in what you want, you can use the right techniques to pull you towards the future reality that you desire. If you seriously believe your imagination can shape your future reality, would you use it to deliberately create the reality you want?
Just browsing through my diary and I recalled this incident. In 2005 when I moved to Sydney for work, I got the lease to my first rental apartment with 2 rooms, which I attracted by using my imagination (the story of how I got it was revealed in an earlier blog entry). I tried to rent out the 2nd room to reduce the amount of rent I was paying. And I wanted to rent the room for $215 per week. I determined the qualities of the type of tenant I wanted. I wanted to have someone clean, honest, quiet, preferably a student and a non-smoker. The technique I used was one of a method I now teach in my book ‘Secret Techniques For Manifesting’.
Within a few days, a young male international student called me, expressing interest to inspect the apartment. That night he came and he was the type of person that fitted my criteria for a good tenant. But as he was about to leave he began to negotiate the rent. He said he only wanted to spend $200 on rent each week, and asked that we split the utility bills. He was a very good negotiator and as I didn’t want to lose such a good prospective tenant, I reluctantly agreed. We agreed to sign the contract and for him to get the keys from me on a Thursday. It was then a Monday.
After he left, I reconsidered it and thought $200 per week was a bit low, considering I owned all the furniture in the apartment, and I had paid a lot of money on the security bond to the agent to secure the lease. I did more mental work over the next 2 days.
On Thursday, I decided I should renegotiate with him when I meet him again that night, to try to get the original rent I advertised for.
But something amazing happened. I met him on the main street to pass him the keys and to collect his deposit money (he was scheduled to move in on that Saturday). I was all ready to renegotiate the rent with him. But before I could open my mouth to get to the topic, he said,
“Charlie, I have something I want to tell you. I want to pay you $215 rent that you asked for.”
I was stunned by his statement, and I was very curious why he changed his mind. I asked him why.
He continued, “I spoke with my mum yesterday on the phone about renting this room, and she told me to pay you the rent you originally asked for, to include the utility bills in the rent. Is this ok? “
I didn’t even have to open my mouth to renegotiate at all. My subconscious mind synchronized the result, by getting his mum to tell him what I was mentally telling him.
