Creative Visualization ~
    .... the unexpected organizing tool!

We live in a cause & effect world.  

Are you drowning in chaos?  News flash: you created it. Every time you throw another piece of paper onto a pile, toss an article of clothing on the back of a chair or banish something to the garage, you are working that chaotic set-up as if you enjoyed the results.  It is amazing how loyal people can be to systems that destroy their ability to work efficiently.  

You can shift your mental, emotional and physical worlds to create a reality that supports your goals rather than continuing in one that thwarts your best efforts at every turn. After all if YOU created what you see now YOU can create something different and better in its place.

With creative visualization you have the opportunity to see your new reality in your mind's eye before you bring it into physical reality. Teenage girls enjoy imagining what a special date will be like.  Young professionals picture an important business meeting going in their favor. Pregnant women try to imagine their delivery and the new child about to enter their lives forever. A young jock will envision a big play on the football field.  

You get the idea.

In other words creative visualization may sound exotic and foreign to you until you realize you've been doing it all your life. When it comes to your organizing projects why not see yourself easily completing the steps involved? Why not imagine yourself enjoying the newly organized space? See clearly how your new circumstances benefit others in your life.

You're probably more adept at imagining the worst possible outcome.  Change your focus and yes, you can change your environment and your life.  What have you got to lose? Nothing but wasted emotional energy and a lot of unwanted stuff.

About Me

My photo

I will always be grateful I grew up in Brooklyn, New York.  It was a rich atmosphere that introduced me to different races, creeds and professions.  It seemed that anything was possible if you were willing to work hard to achieve your goals.

I'm a yogi which means that my spiritual path is that of yoga principles that have been handed down for over 5000 years. Yoga is an ancient philosophy based on the Gita, the sutras of Patanjali and yes, the Bible. The postures are a key element as is meditation. We honor all paths.

I got my first dog when I was 6 years old after a full year of begging.  She was a collie and her name was Queenie.  As an adult I've had 2 golden retrievers.  A female named Miss Katie who came into my life when she was 3 months old and an ancient male golden who came to me when he was 15.  I'd like to have a Great Dane next but we'll see what the universe has in store.

I've been organizing clients for over 24 years and writing about it for over ten.
