Secrets of my Heart
When you visualize you materialize
by Mazuba Mwiinga
Martin Luther King Jr, once proclaimed of having a dream that one day, America will be ruled by a black man. It was not a night dream while sleeping, he was talking about; but a vision. He had visualized that come what, the oppression of the black Americans will come to an end, and a black man will rule the greatest nation of the world. Today, Martin’s visualization materialized the time Barack Obama became US’ first black President.
To visualize is to see in the mind’s eye that which you want to have in your hands. The eye of the mind turns into reality everything it sees.
Visualization is the anchor of all creation. When you visualize you materialize, as one quantum physicist once said. Those of you who have read the bible will stand witness to the fact that all prophesies talk of having seen visions; the future entered their mind and the mind was able to see what lay ahead.
Businessmen always tell us that we need to have a vision of where we want to take our businesses. It’s not just a statement you write on a book, but it’s a thought you enter in your mind. Schools write on walls: OUR MOTTO IS…….OUR MISSION IS…..OUR VISION IS…..but when you ask them what they mean by VISION, very often few will be able to explain to you. It’s so because; a vision is something that must enter your mind for it to happen. It’s not just something that must be on a wall or piece of paper. For a vision to materialize the mind must focus on that particular thing you want to happen and see it happening. If the mind doesn’t get involved in this vision, nothing will come to pass.
When you have that picture playing in your mind always dwell upon the end result; what is that which you want to do with your vision? For instance, if your vision is to see 20 of your pupils in grade 7 go to secondary school at the end of the year; visualize seeing these children celebrating, happy, carrying their luggage going to the station, boarding a bus, singing as they go, arriving at secondary happy, doing very well in class, being well behaved and always top of class, finish school and having jobs or go to college. This is the end result to your vision of these children as the eye of your mind is able to see. When you engage your mind in that manner, you are creating reality; you are materializing your vision. And nothing will stop that from happening.
The mind is so powerful that it shapes our thoughts into reality the very things that we want to achieve. That’s why someone said that THOUGHTS BECOME THINGS.
Buddha said that, “All that we are is the result of what we have thought”. We are creators of our own Universe and every wish we want will manifest in our lives when we engage our minds to visualize that which we want to happen to us.
Have you wondered why we are always requested to close our eyes when praying? It’s because they want us to visualize seeing the words of that particular prayer turning into reality. If you are praying for the sick, the mind must see the sick getting healed; if you are praying for rain, the mind must see raining pouring down. You put the words of the prayer into your mind, so that the mind is able to create reality. That’s how dreams come true.
Albert Einstein (1879 – 1955) said, “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions”.
