Effective Visualization – Lesson 3
Visualization Does Not Ask How!
One thing about visualization, visualization does not ask, how is it going to happen?
Visualization bypasses the how and calls those things which are not as though they already were.
Visualization has its own ways and means, its own secret ways and means. You are never going to find out the details of how creation takes place.
In visualization you are to concern yourself
with what, but not how.
As I stood on Fifth Avenue that day long ago, and many days after that, observing the elegance and visualizing myself in it and it in me, I did not have the slightest idea of how.
I want to make another important statement. Don’t get tripped up by facts. Don’t be hung up by facts. Facts are not the last word.
You are to be master of facts; you are
not to let facts master you.
Yes, it may be a fact that you are poor, but don’t get hung up by that fact. You can see yourself (visualize yourself) out of your poverty.
Once you begin visualizing and seeing yourself being what you want to be, doing what you want to do, and having what you want to have, you will definitely be led to do certain things, and you should cooperate.
I mean, new ideas for reaching your goal will come to you that you never thought of and you have to follow those things.
It doesn’t mean you sit on the stool of “do nothing” and fold your arms, and say, “Well, I’m just going to see it and I’m not going to do anything.” You see it, and your visualization will lead you into the correct doing.
When you are told and led into what
you should do, then do it.
I spoke to a young man, and he was telling about the problems he was having, and this and that, and the other.
And so I asked him, I said, “I referred you to Rev. Perry. He knows a lot about these things, and he told you and he told me some of the things that were available to you. Have you taken advantage of all of the things that are available to you?” No, he had not.
So, when you visualize, visualization says what you want. You may never know how it’s going to come to pass, but the God in you will begin to give you instructions, and then you follow those instructions.
The old cliché, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink.” Pray and say, “Lord, please give me some food,” and the Lord gives you food. You ought to have sense enough to put it in your mouth.
“Amazing sight, the Savior stands and knocks at every door. Ten thousand blessings in His hands to satisfy the poor.” As Rev. Ike translates it, to satisfy you more.
The “How” will be revealed to You.
You will know what to do!
When you visualize the blessings, then you are guided as to what you should do and ways and means are revealed to you, and you should follow those ways and means.
It’s an interesting thing about inspiration, when you don’t follow your inspiration and you don’t do all that you know to do, you won’t get anymore divine instruction.
Use all the instruction that God gives you, and you will draw forth more.
I see so many times people complaining, and moaning, and groaning, and they haven’t done everything for themselves that they could do.
They’re trying to get other folks to do it. They’re trying to get the President to do it. He doesn’t know what to do for himself. He doesn’t have the whole world in his hands, but he’s got the whole world on his back and on his shoulders.
So don’t look to others to do for you!
