One of the scariest things about divorce is that, like or not, ready or not, it calls us to look within ourselves and seriously ask: NOW what? Who do I want to be right now and in the next phase of my life? In work, love, home, family, health and so on, what do I REALLY want?
On a quest to authentically answer these questions, I’ve read many different self-help books. I’ve also devoted a lot of time to positive affirmations, gratitude journaling, and even (some) meditation. As a believer in the power of visualization and the law of attraction, each year I’ve also created a ‘vision board’ for myself, where I cut out pictures of the things /people/ situations I wanted to attract into my life, pinned them on this board, and then spent a few minutes every day imagining how I’d feel if those things were mine now.
A few months ago, however, I was introduced to a powerful new visualization tool called Mind Movies 2.0. This easy-to-use software – which is being touted as a ‘the next big step’ after the movie, The Secret – enables users to create short visualization videos around what they want to manifest in their life; it’s kind of like a vision board in full motion. Users can make a mind movie that focuses on one area of their life – relationships, for example – or they can extend it into all other areas, ie, fitness, children, wealth, career, etc. A full library of images and written affirmations are available to users as they build their movies, or, they can upload or write their own. Then, to really pack emotional punch to their creation, users can add music to it.
What I really like about Mind Movies 2.0 is that it has helped me clarify / focus on what I want my future to look like – even if it’s just for the short-term. Cause as I’m sure you well know, as we plow through our divorces, it’s easy to get stuck in the gore and overwhelm of it all. And it feels wonderful to tip the scales to the positive side; it’s amazing how much more confident and in control I feel by having set some goals,stuck to an action plan, AND begun yielding results! Don’t they say that most people spend more time planning their vacations than they do their lives?
Have any of you tried out Mind Movies 2.0? Do you believe in the power of manifestation and the Law of Attraction, perhaps even more or less so now than you’re divorced? Please feel free to share any other tools you’ve used thus far that you’ve found pivotal on your divorce journey!
