MLBD #9: The Invisible Gorilla
Have you ever played with the power of intention? The idea is to focus on what you want and watch it manifest in your life. This is often achieved through the use of affirmations or incantations which tell our minds exactly what we’d like it to focus on. Essentially, our thoughts and feelings are creating our reality.
This is so important because at any moment, we are surrounded by 2,000,000 bits of information. However, our mind consciously picks up on only 126 of these bits of information. Therefore, when we can direct our minds to focus on what is important to us, we are better aligned for success.
A perfect example of this is a popular video called The Invisible Gorilla. People are instructed to watch the basketball and white shirts, and do not notice the gorilla right in front of them. It proves the point that you do not pick up on everything in your environment. Your dreams and desires could be a gorilla walking past you that you don’t see. And if you are not doing visualizations, affirmations, or incantations to tell your mind what to focus on consistently, there is a slight possibility that it is staring you in the face.
What in your life is a gorilla?
It’s time to step up and create the life that you were destined to live. Decide what you want to create in your life. Choose something that you’ve been putting off. Begin telling yourself a new story that your dream or goal is achievable or attainable. Then start to create powerful incantations around what you want to create. Visualize and tell your unconscious mind what you would like it to pick up on.
