    The Secret of My Manifestations, Creating Life Right Brain Style

    Visualizing isn’t for everyone and visualizing with feeling can feel very awkward. You may have trouble producing mind pictures, or you may just feel plain silly.

    No one can make you feel guilty, make you angry, or make you cry. Only you can make yourself feel anything, so if its bad, stop! Let it roll off you, like water off a duck's back. Say to yourself, "That is their reality not mine."
