The law of attraction and tricking the mind
As we read in the previous chapter, the subconscious mind plays a critical role in the practice of creative visualization, influencing the law of attraction in a positive or negative way.
Research done in the field of psychology undoubtedly demonstrates that the subconscious mind has absolutely no power to reason, and makes no discrimination, sorting or even analysis of the information it receives.
In fact, the subconscious mind is unable to know the difference between something that is real and something that is imagined. It is important to understand this point if you want to apply the law of attraction into your life.
Your subconscious mind will believe anything - right or wrong, true or false - that your conscious mind will suggest upon it.
Every affirmations or declaration made by the conscious mind to your subconscious mind, will be accepted as "true". When your brain buys into it, believes it, belief is created. It is the subconscious mind that "projects" or manifests our physical experience.
Exactly what does this means? It basically means that it is actually possible to trick or ‘hack’ your brain into creating or designing beliefs so that it will be in unity with your conscious mind’s desires and dreams, thus letting the power of the law of attraction work its magic for you.

The perfect way to trick your brain is, you guessed it, creative visualization techniques. Always remember: the law of attraction and creative visualization goes hand to hand.
As I have said earlier, creative visualization is a way to assist you in achieving your goals by reprogramming your subconscious mind efficiently.
The stronger a visualization session is, the quicker you can obtain results, as the subconscious mind will get in line or in accordance with your consciously set goals, and at the end, the law of attraction will do the rest.
The subconscious mind only thinks in the present. It does not think in the past or even the future, the way the conscious mind can. So the next time you use affirmation in order to obtain something you want, say… ”I am”, or “I have”, not “I wish”, or “I should.” Be resolute, determined with your self-affirmations. Don’t doubt, not even a little or the law of attraction won't work the way you want it to.
During a creative visualization session, your subconscious mind will give you what you desire a lot quicker if, while saying affirmations, you feel the emotion you would feel when you get it. If you say you’ll have or get what you want in the future, your subconscious mind will see you as presently NOT having it. And that’s what it will deliver to you… nothing. Be like an actor, pretend, act, make yourself believe you made it in the grand play of the law of attraction.
It’s a known fact, the subconscious mind learns by repetition. So when, you say affirmations to obtain what you dream about, you can’t just say them once and expect them to work immediately. You need to say them repeatedly, over and over again, until your subconscious mind acts upon them. Please note, I said ACT!
Understanding that the subconscious mind absolutely does not distinguish between what is real and what is imagined, simply pretend you are feeling, happy and delighted at the time you do your affirmations of what you want. Isn’t that how you would feel if you had it? Just think about those joyful feelings and let the law of attraction deliver!Next: Beware of what you don't want
