Hi there, It’s great to connect here again. On the last post I talked about getting a car, and how the picture in my mind determined which car I settled for in the end.
I’d like to bring to your notice something about the post that you might not have noticed, and that is the fact that even though the car had not been bought yet, at the point the events narrated in that story were unfolding, I kept referring to it as ‘my car’. Why did I keep referring to a car that I was yet to buy or pay for as my car?
The answer is the subject of today’s post, which is taking ownership of that which I had seen in my mind. Once you have been able to clarify in your mind, the picture of the future that you desire, the next step will be to begin to own it and affirm that ownership. By the time I knew what brand of car, model and options I wanted, I began to tell my friends, whenever our conversations drifted to cars, what my car looked like.
It became impossible to persuade me that any other car was better than the one I wanted. I kept referring to it as my car, and I just kept affirming the fact that it was the car I was going to get. The issue wasn’t just bragging around about a picture I had seen, instead it was getting my mind to believe what it was that I wanted and the more I affirmed it, the more possible it became to me.
Now there have been other times when I saw a picture of something I should be doing, especially where ideas are concerned and the more I claimed ownership and talked about it, the clearer the process became to me. The future is dependent on the choices that we make on a daily basis, and when a picture forms in my mind, I choose to make it mine and the more I think about it, and accept responsibility for it (which is what ownership is about) the easier it becomes to work the process.
The more I claimed the car as mine, the more I realized that it was going to be paid for, and that I will also have to take care of it, by the time I got it and all that.
Taking ownership of a picture before manifestation provides you with the time to think the working process through and take responsibility for it. So rather than refer to that idea as just that business idea refer to it by your brand name, and see how it feels.
Another reason why ownership is key is the feeling of having achieved your dream, even before you start to work it out. There is a euphoria that hits you when you can own an idea or picture enough to see yourself when it has been concluded.
Till next time, I know February is on the roll and it seems that you are been left behind, remember it is not of him that wills or of him who runs; it is the Lord who shows mercy. If you begin to do your bit now, you will make it… nevertheless.
Love you lots
