Here is an MP3 sound file for the youtube money bag visualization.
I wanted a local copy so I could play it without going onlne.

*I have renamed it to MP4 so I could upload it and you may have to rename it to MP3 extension to make it work.

Self Discipline and Planning

For those who have read and studied about manifesting your visualization, you will understand the importance of planning. (In Think and Grow Rich n Hill refers to Organized Planning the Sixth Step to Riches). Initially after visualizing our outcome consistently and for a substantial duration a plan to attain our goal may be handed over to us by our subconscious.

We have all heard many variations of the 90-10 rule. Such as:
  • the top 10% of all realtors make 90% of the money.
  • 10% of our actions create 90% of our success.
  • 90% of our success comes from our inner work and 10% from our outer (external world) work.
  • most people spend 90% of their time on unproductive activities and only 10% on those activities that will contribute to their success.
etc.

If we have a plan to achieve our goal some visualizations can be of our implementation of that goal - our plan.
The plan is the organized set of steps and actions that lead us from where we are to where we will be (or where we already are in our mind's eye).



Here is a definition of self-discipline from session1 of an audio prg I have:
self-disciplined defined - mp3.mp4

session 3
Our behaviour is governed by images of achievement, neuronal blueprints of success or failure in the achievement of our goals.
The brain cannot tell the difference between a real experience and a vividly imagined one.
-----------------
Therefore vividly imagined images of success and create new neuronal blueprints of success (to replace our blueprints of failure). Vividly imagine trading successes.

My suggestion (to myself)
Replay in your mind past days with you perfectly trading them. See the signals you recognized. Feel the certainty of the setup. See yourself entering and triggering the order. See the profit mounting. Feel the joy, pride and satisfaction of masterful trading. Imagine (live the experience of) your bank account growing exponentially each day and it reaching your target.

Good trading to everyone.

mentors and modelling

session 6 On modelling and mentoring:

By learning the methods, behaviors of master(s) of your craft you gains a road map to successful action.
Sometimes the mentors or teachers indirect through books and media.

"It is a rare artist who develops a new style without having worked in the style of with a master he or she admires."
------------

What I noticed was the use of the word "admires". Perhaps we admire those who approach their craft in the way we are akin to in our hearts. There may be a common spark where we think - ''Yes that is the right way to do it'.

So we have a road map or path to we can visualizing leading to success.

I think nowhere as in trading is the path to success so ill-defined. It (must be?) is unique to some extent. We need to develop an edge that moves us from random and tilts the odds of success in our favour.

Good trading to everyone.

Futures Edge on FIO
I have been doing the vortex guided money bags visualization each morning - first thing.

I still am struggling to find the time for more visualizations but I am hoping to.
I thing the main thing is to stay positive in the face of discouragement.
Without a positive outlook I can't imagine that visualization attempts will meet with success.

From N V Peele recommendation say in the morning:
"This is the day the Lord hath made. I will rejoice and be glad in it."

We remind ourselves to be grateful for life and its blessings.

Good trading to everyone.

gratitude attitude

Often when I go to sleep after saying my prayers I ask that I will be given a message to help me in my trading.

One morning I woke with the phrase
"Enormous Abundance"

which I understand to mean I should recognize that I already have enormous abundance in my life and to recognize and appreciate this.

Though I don't have financial abundance by North American standards (income or net worth) I realize I have many blessings.

Imagine the luxury of having a warm shower -

Many in the world have to search for drinking water and only have stagnant disease-ridden pools to draw from.
For them getting enough food to survive is a struggle.
They will never know the luxury of a warm shower and soap.

180,000 people die each 3 days from starvation or malnutrition diseases. Die an agonizing death after a pain-filled life.

Good trading to everyone.

Thoughts from the ether

"One of the biggest obstacles to our success is not our own doubts but the doubts of others."

When Henry Ford was working out the assembly line process everyone said it wouldn't work. But his wife said you believe in it, it is a good idea go ahead and do it.

Impinging upon our thought environment (TE) is the thoughts of others - some helpful and supportive - many not.

In doing visualizations we want to cultivate a positive supportive thought environment (PSTE). A belief structure that everything is going to work out fine, all is for the best and that the universe is conspiring to help us.

If our TE is negative, fearful or apprehensive it is very difficult to successfully engage in visualizations. The gremlins come in. Fear, doubt and worry gnaw at us and effectively destroy our chances for success.

------
Thoughts are not only generated by our minds. They are also generated by the minds of others. These fill the ether. If you are not aware of this or if you have no way to guard against negative thoughts, you are leaving yourself open to these thoughts entering your mind - like seeds of weeds blown upon the wind into the garden of your mind.

The stronger the psychic connection to you the more the thoughts of the that person can be projected to and picked up by your (subconscious mind). (note 1) Some people are very strong at projecting thoughts. If a parent - a person who has strong ties to you - projects the thoughts:

x will never succeed
x will never have money
I am so worried about x

Then x will pick up on these thoughts. It takes BOTH awareness and practice to throw out these "weed Seeds" before they take root in your subconscious and foul the garden of your mind.

money bags visualization

I have been listening to the guided visualization each day now.
(first thing each day before starting my work)

It really helps me feel better.

Putting a smile on your face and breathing in love and joy is a lot of fun.

This morning, I keyed in on the words
"Feel the freedom of imagining anything you want to."

--------------------------------------------

It is a wonderful and powerful freedom.

To close our eyes and transport ourselves to a beautiful, joyful, magical world rich in everything good and painted with the limitlessness of our imagination.


As I typed this post the title of the classic book "As a man thinketh" by one of the world's greatest spiritual authors, James Allen, sprang to mind.

Good trading to everyone.

Another line I like from James Allen

"That circumstances grow out of thought every man knows who has for any length of time practiced self-control and self-purification, for he will have noticed that the alteration in his circumstances has been in exact ratio with his altered mental condition. So true is this that when a man earnestly applies himself to remedy the defects in his character, and makes swift and marked progress, he passes rapidly through a succession of vicissitudes."

The last sentence particularly struck me when I was rereading the book, when I looked up what vicissitude meant (lol). But for the record its 'a change of circumstances or fortune, typically one that is unwelcome or unpleasant.' I have been trying to turn my life around since early 2013, dabbling into various self-help books, ventured into online poker, got into trading late 2014 etc but since then I have experienced multiple crisis and a lot of hardships in many areas of my life, each one driving me to my knees but at the same time made me determined to understand and overcome the situations. Losing my funding was my most recent hit and "dark night of the soul" in which it became obvious that my loss in faith in myself was ruining my performance and that the only way I was going to succeed was to get that back, leading me to look deeper into trading psychology and the psychology of wealth in general, learning about the importance of subconscious beliefs and how the thoughts and feelings we have on a habitual basis (which is largely driven by subconscious conditioning) will create our circumstances.

In think and grow rich Napoleon Hill says "Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit." I have found this to be so true, because the adversities I have faced have broken me but then allowed me to rebuild myself into something stronger and my identity has shifted so much that when I looked back its like I hold the memories of different person who isn't me. "A first rate madness" by Nassir Ghaemi also explores this idea, looking at the link between mental illness and crisis time leaders.

Another line from As a Man Thinketh

"Suffering is always the effect of wrong thought in some direction. It is an indication that the individual is out of harmony with himself, with the Law of his being. The sole and supreme use of suffering is to purify, to burn out all that is useless and impure. Suffering ceases for him who is pure. There could be no object in burning gold after the dross had been removed, and a perfectly pure and enlightened being could not suffer."

(Although I would disagree with that last statement, I think as long as you live on Earth you will experience pain to varying degrees, how you deal with it is a whole other story).

Understanding yourself is just as important as understanding markets.

Still without - great change within.


"Still without great change within"

How do we feel our greatness when others grade us as what we were?

I was thinking about visualization and the concept of holding phrases such as:
"I am rich"
"I am abundant"
"I have $x million"
"I am the world's best trader"
in our minds.

Often others will ask: "How much do you make trading?".

But what we have done is our past. If we want our future to be different than our past we must "see" (in our mind's eye) our new selves and believe that that is who we really are. The outside is not who we are it is who we were. Our outside circumstances are not a reflection of who we are but who we were.

"Still without - great change within."

Others hold in their minds a view of you that is based on who you were not who you are (assuming you have done the inner work to change you = your mind's eye view of you) but who you were.

The key is to understand you really are - the new you NOW, in the moment of the present, while you are visualizing the new you (rich abundant successful, joyful, in perfect health, etc).

You are that NewYouNow, not in the future. (The future has not yet manifested in the external world). The external world will clothe itself in the NewYouNow if you persistently, strongly and repeatedly hold it and believe it. The present will change and the "future" will express the FutureNew you.

Another way to think of this is that in the present, there is not the past, or the future, but only the moment of the NOW.

Aside: Plato's concept of Forms
Spiritual reality is the foundation upon which external world manifests. This is akin/equal to Plato's concept of the Form. A triangle is a Form. If you make an external physical world representation of a triangle that is clothing the spiritual reality in external "reality". The external world version is only an approximation of the Form. It will never be a perfect triangle (always off by millimeters, microns etc.)

Yet others will see you as you have been, (in their minds as you are ) graded by your past.

Good trading to everyone.
