What Your Mind Can Conceive, You Can Achieve

The subhead appearing above--what your mind can conceive, you can  achieve--presents in eight words the most important message that any  person will receive in a lifetime.

The dramatic and very real power of the mind has been available  since pre-Christian times. In perhaps more wordy fashion it can be  found in the Bible, in literature, in studies and reports on psychology, philosophy, medicine, history and countless other disciplines.  Innumerable present-day books present the same message in varying forms  and on various subjects.

Acceptance and utilization of that eight-word message has produced  apparent miracles, provided solutions to problems in virtually every  area of life experience (relationships, health, education, personal  development, business, etc.). The knowledge is available to everyone;  the skills are easily acquired; the tremendous power is seldom  recognized or used.

Stress  Management

Children have wonderful powers of imagination. A young girl  playing with a doll becomes a mother-a very real mother, with a doll  which is a very real baby. She dresses it, talks with it, provides  direction, even punishes it. The imaging of this playtime can affect  the future handling of children as an adult mother.

A young boy plays with a truck in the sand. It becomes a real  truck, and he is a real worker. Or a child plays with a toy airplane.  He becomes a real pilot. The take-offs and landings are real. They are pictured in the mind. Thinking about the activities that are being  performed is imagination. Picturing them in the mind, vividly and  realistically, is visualization. The child doesn't realize the power he is using. And as he grows to adulthood, the motivation to imagine and  visualize often fades and the inherent power declines.

Fortunately, not all children lose their powers to imagine as they  grow and develop. Certain professions require these abilities. The  fields of artistic creation-painting, sculpture, architecture,  decorating, advertising-all demand powers of visualization. So also  does music, for senses other than sight can be involved in imaging. A  composer images the sound of his music. A blind person (and many  others) image by touch. A lover can image by scent. A gourmet or chef  images by taste.

Differences between people can be dramatic. One home-buyer can  look at a lot and visualize a beautiful residence, with appealing style, landscaping, location of the lot, even floor plan and doors and  windows. Another buyer can see only grass, weeds and dirt and must be  shown renderings to grasp the idea of what can be developed on the  property. A young person can picture the development of a product, the  beginnings of a business and the progress to an industrial giant... and  can make it happen. Another can visualize nothing, can get a job to  earn a living, and may wonder why advancement never comes.

The powers of visualization are sufficient to merit the effort  required to master them. Once the ability is acquired to picture goals, dreams and ambitions in the mind, four elements are necessary to  generate the power to bring them into realization: DESIRE-the want must be real and deep and permanent; BELIEF-it is important to believe that  the desired achievement is possible... do-able; EXPECTATION-it is vital  to expect success, considering it a foregone conclusion; DEMAND--the  final requirement is self-demand, a personal requirement that those  things necessary to success will be accomplished.

Light-heartedness, half-heartedness, going-through-the-motions is  not enough. To those who develop the mental attitudes and aptitudes to  make things happen, the process is serious business. It is necessary to give the time, concentration and mental energy necessary to the  purpose. Mind-set is critical. However, once mastered, the potential  results are incredible.

Step by Step, Onward and Upward

Internal power does not come easily--nothing worthwhile ever does.  But for those who do not have the necessary basic elements in good  working order, hypnotherapy may be the shortest and most effective means of acquiring them.

Self-Esteem: This element is necessary for virtually anything  worth having. Many people, unfortunately, have low opinions of their  own self-worth. Self-esteem can be damaged by adverse events in life,  by childhood imprints involving parents, teachers or other authority  figures, by illness, by guilt or any of innumerable other causes.  Hypnotherapy is a means by which a person can achieve a new self-view,  recognizing the positive elements in life (there are always some) and  building on them. Improving self-esteem is a necessary first step.

Self-Confidence: Not the same as self-esteem, self-confidence is  the element that makes possible the undertaking and completion of the  things improved self-esteem brought under consideration. It is  essential to the 'belief' factor discussed previously.

Motivation: This element is necessary to power the willingness to  practice and perfect the visualization capabilities, to engender the  patience to continue visualizations on a regular basis during whatever  time is required to manifest them, and to deal with and overcome periods of discouragement.

All of the above can be enhanced through hypnotherapy. And for  those who prefer to utilize self-hypnosis, a few sessions of training  can help develop such skills to noticeably effective levels.

The most important factor, of course, is the acceptance of the  premise that "What my mind can conceive, I can achieve!" The human mind has incredible power, but if this power is denied or rejected, it will  not be there for use. A beginning step in an effort to recognize and  understand mind power is the use and repetition of psychologist Emile  Coue's famous statement: "Every day in every way, I'm getting better  and better!"
