Today’s engagement is with autosuggestion. Many philosophers have told us, and in the science of personal achievement it tells us, that if we can visualize with vivid imagination whatever we want, it will come true. Problem is most people use this in reverse, they are visualizing things they don’t want, and of course, those come true.
It is definitely a science to visualize what you do want in ways that really make a difference. Let me give you a real quick acronym, a real quick run-through of one important new idea I tucked into the pages of The NEW Think and Grow Rich relating to the science of visualization.
It’s an acronym called VAKOGEM, an acronym of the nature of NASA, which means National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Here we go!…
V, visual, what can be happening, what can be moving, what can be big, what can be little? What can be grave, what can be vibrant! Obviously the bad things in your life, the things you’re leaving behind turn gray and black and white, the good things, vibrant, energetic, fireworks, pulsing with energy, visual.
Auditory is the A, what sound(s), what do you hear when you achieve your thing? What is it, for instance, if you’re affirming an emotion of love, a relationship of love? What are you feeling, what are you saying between each other?
Where are you at, what is an empowerment signal to you? I know for me I love to hear water, I love to hear airplanes; these are consciously chosen and connected! You can do it, too,
V-A-K, kinesthetic, what are you feeling? What are you doing, are you exercising? If you’re exercising is there sweat dripping off your chin? Are you dancing? Rock-it!
V-A-K-O, olfactory, what are you smelling? Is there anything in the environment that has a chararistic odor? Gimme a break! Depending on what your ambitions and your goals, and the purpose of your intentions for whatever qualifications, whatever autosuggestions, whatever affirmations you make, olfactory may be part of it. If it’s a wedding, for instance, there may be a lot of flowers, there may be a lot of cake. There may be a lot of perfume.
V-A-K-O-G, gustatory. What is you’re eating? Now I have had a client for some years who is a chef, believe me, you cannot imagine the shades of distinction in taste. It’s been a new one to me. But for you, is there anything there? In your celebrations are you eating? Or is it with your family, and believe me, your own visualizations are yours. Where are you celebrating? Are you enjoying eating and drinking? Is it part of your visualization?
V-A-K-O-G-E, and we put two dots over the E for umlaut, emotion. What are you feeling? Do you feel passion? The more passion you can feel the better off you are and the more. And for those less than pleasant experiences you’ve had The ones that you’ve permanently learned your lessons from The more forgetfulness, the more ‘just can’t remember’, can’t feel, can’t connect, is better!
Do you see you have the absolute ability to control your connections, to drive your motivation? You cannot have a psychical feeling or sentiment, without having a physical feeling and sentiment.
And then finally, V-A-K-O-G-E-M, movement. What kind of movement is involved with the achievement of your greatest dreams? The human mind loves novelty! Why else could the giant entertainment industry churn out one blockbuster after another?
I hope you apply the VAKOGEM formula, V-A-K-O-G-E-M, to all your affirmations, to all your empowerment, to all the visualizations of your goals and dreams. And that you become as rich as you desire.
