Depressed? Try this antidote imagery
I am just lying so relaxed on my sweet-smelling, soft and silky bed. I am now slowly and unthinkingly sliding my palms on the silky bed cover while my mind wanders on those beautiful things I would like to posses if I have enough money. I have one hundred of them in my unwritten and yet to write down list of those wonderful things I would spend on, if my resources allow me.
Suddenly my cellphone rings, it is on top of the side table of my bed. Its ring abruptly brings me back to my present situation; I grabbed it and say "Yes? Hello?" The voice in the other end asks me to confirm my identity in which he mentions my name and all I say is "yes". Then his litany starts by saying "You just have won $100M tax-free..." and continues on the details on why and how to get it.
I have no idea how long such phone call lasts but when I hang up the phone I go back to my original situation calmly; lying on bed and continue imagining on spending on all those things that I want to posses, do, and become.
Now that I have all the money I could ever use for everything that my mind can afford to imagine; my imagination becomes intensified and with the surety of the present reality. The imagination now becomes a necessity and comprehensive; I start listing down what to do in a very detailed manner and with feelings.
What I see in this fantastic vision;
I get myself ready in which I use my most expensive bath soap and shampoo in my shower. Humming a tune as I shower and while my mind is seeing my hands touching, and counting the bulk of dollar bills.
Then I wear my favorite dress, the one that make me feel like a superstar and very attractive; fix my hair and relish the beauty and fashionable me in front of the mirror. I see the happy smile on my face as I try to remain calm.
From the mirror I stand up and put on my favorite shoes and pick my favorite handbag. Then I start down the stairway as I call my driver to pick me up and wait on me for the whole day.
To the bank is my first destination; here I spend two hours to get all the money matters set. My $100M is now in my personal account and I can get the cash or check in any amount that I desire to spend in any given time.
I am rich! A multimillionaire! I am lucky! I am a winner! I am blessed! and all these sorts of affirming my reality are now screaming loudly within me; in the outside though, I am just all smiles and glow to express my happiness at the least.
From the bank my driver takes me to my favorite and expensive restaurant; in the restaurant I choose a strategically situated table in a conference or private room. Once there, I tell the waiter to bring me the specialty food for the day as an initial order. Then I start on my phone by calling the most important people in my horizon.
List of people to call;
Rhena Jean...my daughter.
Ma'am Veron...my best friend.
Sir Owel...our school cashier.
Joy...long-time nanny of my grandchildren.
There would be more later but they live too far away for an instant dinner or lunch.
To each of these people in the list I would say "Whatever you do now, leave it. Come and join me in my celebration for winning $100M. You will receive $10,000 gift once you are here to partake dinner with me in this celebration."
My driver fetch them and in less than one hour, all of them are surrounding me; all of us happy and far richer.
Aftermath and happy ever after
I am now living a happy and fulfilling life. I had actually gifted my daughter with money more than enough for her to buy a house and lot and a car plus an investment for whatever business she would like to venture.
Whereas, aside from helping my friends, family and distant relatives, I have the following list to spend on;
1. Spend the rest of my life with my husband, travelling the world, hotel hoping and cross-country hoping together.
2. Buy ourselves the dream house in the Carrebean or anywhere where the weather and environment could help keep us healthy, youthful and energetic all year round.
3. Buy ourselves the dream car that fits our personality.
4. Create something that we both are interested to do and be productive.
The list could continue to the details of one hundred items.
A study conducted by Psychologist David Schultz with patients of depression at Yale and West Haven, Connecticut V.A. Hospital showed that depression could be reduced by visualizing cheerful scenes such as winning a lottery and other appealing ideal scenes for the person concerned.
William James said; "The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives."
And Napoleon Hill also said this popular adage: "Whatever the mind of man can conceive, it can achieve."
Now go ahead, if you can imagine it, then you can have it...Create your own appealing imaginings in a cheerful spirit, if only to divert yourself from the harsh reality surrounding you. Be sure to get into that trance-like state of relaxation...for focus and who knows...for manifestation?
