A technique recommended by both Seth and Lazaris, both teachers of the manifestation process, is focusing on a single picture of what you want, with as much emotion as you can possibly muster.
Seth doesn’t specify a time period, but in Lazaris’ videotape, “Secrets of Manifesting What you Want, Part II”, he recommends to hold the picture of what you want for 33 seconds exactly, to receive the most powerful results. At the end of the 33 seconds it is important to immediately shift your visualization to black. But when you hold this single picture of what you want in your mind, you should feel as much joy and as much bliss as you can possibly feel. The picture should be as simple as possible.
It could just be you, with a smile on your face because you had just received what you want. But make the picture simple, and when you repeat the technique, make sure you visualize the exact same picture each time. You may want to make notes on what your picture was, so you remember the details.
If any of the emotion you feel as you are thinking about what you want, is negative emotion, it is an indication that you need to clear out some of the beliefs and old scripts that say you can’t have this thing. The negative emotion is a wonderful tool, that lets you know you have more clearing to do before you will allow the thing you want into your life.
Lazaris teaches that after you have completed any powerful technique, you should receive a sign within 72 hours that indicates you are succeeding. That doesn’t mean you’ll get the thing you want within 72 hours, although you may. It DOES means you will definitely get a sign that it is coming, that you are on the right track. Sometimes the sign will be little.
You may mistake the sign for what you are getting, as meaning you will get only that, instead of the actual thing. If you are creating money, and you want a thousand dollars, and three days after doing an emotional visualization you receive a check for $5, you will be tempted to say, “i/this is what I have created; forget it. I must be really lousy at this manifesting stuff ” You may be tempted to feel disappointed. But this is actually good news – it is a sign that the energy you are putting out is effective! when the sign arrives, and it will, rejoice! Realize you are creating your own reality consciously! CELEBRATE. YOU ARE DOING IT! No, it isn’t all done yet. It does need more work. But it’s coming! It’s coming!
If you are creating money, the sign may be that you go into a store to buy something, and the thing you were going to buy is on sale. Or you get a rebate check in the mail. I have even received a sign that my techniques for money were working when a check appeared in my mailbox, made out to someone else, in another state. Do you think it ended up in my mailbox the day after I did a technique by accident? No way! I created that. And I took it as a sign that it is just the beginning of lots and lots of checks in my mailbox, all made out to ME!
If you’re creating relationships, the sign may be seeing other people in wonderful relationships just like the one you want. Now don’t let the sign be an excuse for you to slip into self-pity! “Oh look, they got what I wanted ” No! When you see people around you having what you want it is always a sign to you that you can now have it too! We can only bring into our experience what we can have!
That’s how the law of attraction works.
So when you get the sign, and you will — Celebrate It! Be excited about it. Run and jump and shout and laugh and be joyous, if only in your mind. This gives a clear message to your subconscious mind and to your guides that success is what you want… and to send more! You are on your way!
