Blogging Tulsa Real Estate: Does Visualization Really Help You Get What You Want?

Does Visualization Really Help You Get What You Want?

Does Visualization Really Help You Get What You Want? 

Today I took a different route home to pick up the mail after attending the Mike Lyon seminar on Social Networking at Tulsa's Little Theater.

It's not like I was depressed or anxious.  I just didn't feel like going back to work quite yet.

So I stopped off at the Fairgrounds to see if I could find my old horse trainer at the year-end schooling show.

I really haven't been there in years since I don't ride any more.  It was really quiet because today they were doing the low jumps and the green horses were doing their rounds. 

I sat in the stands and watched the rounds and listened to the music.  It was so rhythmic.  Just watching the horses and breathing.  For me it was meditative like yoga.

I remembered how I used to just stand at the window and watch my horses run through the front pasture. 

But I am not being nostalgic.  There is something primal about watching horses -- even under saddle. 

I wandered off and found my friend who sells tack -- she owns The Horse of Course in Claremore.  We talked until a customer came up and we were introduced.

Wouldn't you know it  -- the lady I met has a little mare for sale by a wonderful Oldenburg stallion whom I have always admired.  The mare is just getting going and so she is affordable -- well, sort of -- let's say she is within reach if I sell a few nice houses.

So I went and looked at the mare and then I waited until I could watch her in the ring.

Suddenly I started realizing that I could own that mare and be riding again.  I just have to want it and make it happen. 

I just came out of Landmark Education's Self Expression and Leadership Program where I was a coach.  In the Curriculum for Living we learn that we can have whatever we want in life.

There is nothing stopping me. 

I want another horse.

It may be that mare.  It may be another animal.  It doesn't matter.

I can visualize what I want.  I can feel the mane in my fingers.  It's going to happen.

I will be buying another horse and boarding it by April 2011.  Pictures will be posted on Active Rain by June 1, 2011.

Good for you to reconnect with that part of yourself that found joy in horses.

Thanks, Michelle.  It really is easy to forget what we really love when we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of trying to make a living.

You're on target.  Of course what you visualize come to pass.  At least mostly.  I decided I was going to be a top agent in San Francisco and it's happening.  I decided to start playing basketball and excel and it's happened...etc.  Yes the horse is yours already.  Congrats!

Thanks for the encouragement, Frank.

Debbie, did it work? I know just what you mean about watching horses - for me there's nothing like seeing an Arab move, but I love watching all of them.

Like you, I need a horse. The past few months have been the first time in more than 20 years that I've been horseless, and it doesn't feel right. I'm thinking about a horse I met at a rescue facility... not an Arab, but a big guy with kind eyes.

I hope you got your horse - and if it hasn't happened yet, I hope you're keeping the visualization alive!
