Previously I talked about creating your vision statement. Well, I know you got that done. So now that you have it written down, you may be asking yourself, "What do I do with that?" The next step I want to encourage you to do is to start doing a visualization meditation.
The reason we do a visualization meditation is because we want to send as much energy as we possibly can to this dream which will bring it into our lives.
A great approach to this is to sit down. It does not matter if you’ve got a meditation pillow or you use a kitchen chair. Make sure it's quiet, and that you won't have any interruptions. Close your eyes. Then start the five, five, and five method which is breathe in slowly, for a count of five, hold it. Breathe out, slowly with the count of five, hold it, and do it five times. This will get you in a more calm and meditative state.
Once you feel relaxed and focused, start visualizing in your mind your vision statement that you just created. See yourself...
