Deep in the guided meditation, I saw myself sitting on a beautiful beach, under a grove of cool, shady trees. Soft breeze blowing, gulls cawing, oh so peaceful. And I clearly saw a huge, thick brick wall between me and my goal, transparent so I could see the goal but not reach it.
Natalie asked us to create another picture, up in the "corner of our vision," this one a concrete picture of ourselves enjoying the goal. I visualized that picture coming closer to me while at the same time the other blocked picture was receding. I felt a distinct struggle with this process, but per her direction I snapped the "good" picture into place. And in the process I actually felt an energetic release. I saw the "bad" picture fading, crumpling at the edges and finally disappearing. And I saw myself reaching for and obtaining the goal I'd set. Dancing around the beach, laughing in joy.
What pictures would you put in these places? And how can you make the switch from the "unobtainable" to the "easily reached"?
