Happy Up Your Life With Creative Visualization

Shakti Gawain’s bestselling book Creative Visualization: Use the Power of Your Imagination to Create What You Want in Your Life celebrated its 40th Anniversary in 2018, and then the author passed away in November (2018). I highly recommend this book. It is beautifully written and packed with simple tools you can begin using right away, such as visualizations, affirmations, meditations, and other creative techniques to help you achieve your goals on any level — mental, emotional, physical, or spiritual.

I especially loved the exercise called “Ideal Scene” in which I thoroughly enjoyed writing out my vision of working on the movie set with James Cameron as he turns my book into a film that elevates many beings! (You can read more about my book here: The Tejaswini Ramayana: The Way of Rama in the Shakahara StarFire Universes.)

One thing about working towards our goals is that we have to find a balance between accepting what we have now and simultaneously working towards what we want in the future. I really appreciated Shakti’s advice on that. She wrote, “Take the attitude that you are accepting and handling whatever already exists in your life, and at the same time taking every moment as a new opportunity to begin creating exactly what you desire and will make you happiest.”

Are you happy now in your life? Are you doing what you love to do? In this wonderful book, Shakti says that when we are in alignment with our higher purpose, our contribution “may involve many things, or it may be something very simple…. It always involves being yourself totally, completely, and naturally, and doing something or many things that you genuinely love to do, and that you have a natural gift for.”

I loved this book and I will read it again and again. There is also a companion workbook that I have on the shelf but haven’t worked through yet. I’m looking forward to doing so at the right time. It is called The Creative Visualization Workbook: Use the Power of Your Imagination to Create What You Want in Your Life, by Shakti Gawain.

I hope you will also benefit greatly from reading Creative Visualization. May it help you to Happy Up your life!

May All Beings Be Happy!
