Visualization and the Law of Attraction

Conor McGregor came to the UFC to be the best and to show the world a type of fighter they had never seen before. Watch and listen to these classic Conor McGregor interviews to trace his journey, starting with his early statements of intent, through to the realisation of his vision, and how he has reframed his setbacks, both injury and defeat, to keep his momentum.

When you’re in the struggle it is harder to visualize. When you can do that, that really makes that law of attraction work.

Conor visualises how his fights will go, using his imagination, his kinaesthetic senses, focusing on how the moment will feel.

I see myself as the champ already, I visualize everything; I visualize this conversation, I visualize the walk-out,  have the shots picked out, If you see it in your head, you see it before your eyes.

I can feel that gold around my waist.

Is it all some kind of placebo or self-hypnosis?

A vision allows you to align the conscious and unconscious mind to focus on making a vision a reality. It also prevents obsessive regret and self pity. Even meme magic is just science that hasn’t been discovered yet.

The excellent YouTube videos by Mindsmash provides some basics about theta brainwaves and finding flow, and how certain mental states blur the line between dream and reality, perhaps to the degree that the mind cannot tell the difference.

Flow is vital to visualization. It is linked to mindset by Mike Cernovich at Danger and Play. Visualization is a major component  of Gorilla Mindset and is illustrated in MAGA Mindset, which used Donald Trumps campaign as another example of these principles in action.

These connections are summarised by Cernovich here:

Your imagination is your reality.

I imagined myself living off of a laptop. I imagined myself becoming an author. Gorilla Mindset has now sold so many copies that people accuse me of lying about it, as first-time independent authors never have my level of success.

My imagination manifests itself as will, which imposes itself on reality.

In Masaru Emoto’s The Healing Power of Water he references Robert Sheldrake’s concept of the morphogenetic field, the middle ground between genes and evolution. This may not just lend some weight to the concept of visualization, but also to epigenetics, reincarnation and mimetics. Part 2 of this blog series will explain  this connection more clearly. Later blogs will focus of Conor McGregor, Donald Trump and Mike Cernovich.

2016 was the Year of Visualization

2016 was the Year of Visualization

2016 was a year of creative inspiration, dominated by men who have the ability to shape the reality around them. Visualization, or the law of attraction, must be differentiated from ‘the Secret‘, which was  an attempt to make the law of attraction a product. It is not the creation of matter from nothing. It is a way to consciously create synchronicity between the conscious and unconscious mind.

We like to think that we know who we are. We like to think we are in control of our identity. We are definitely not the sum process of a bizarre combination of chemical reactions and learned behaviour. When you can’t sleep, when you can’t eat, and when you can’t bear to sit alone in an empty house, it is your unconscious that won’t let you rest. This is the bug. Socrates called it his daimon. It is the source…

When I was a younger I was fascinated that Marilyn Manson could crown himself the Antichrist Superstar before he’d released the album, and the world make it happen; that Kid Rock could announce to the world he was going platinum, and the world promptly complied. 

I saw it as some kind of mass-hypnosis, that no one wanted to be the one to point out that the emperor is naked, and this is not entirely removed from the truth. There is an element of hypnosis, but the actor is not just hypnotising the audience. The actor is hypnotising himself, and the delusion can be infectious.

Scott Adams picked Donald Trump to win the 2016 election based on his rhetorical abilities. Vox Day wrote about the rhetoric/logic dichotomy in SJWs Always Lie. Mike Cernovich makes self-talk a major part of Gorilla Mindset.

Whether this is all a form of active self-delusion or a way to re-programme your brain is irrelevant. We are talking about the space between the letters, where no regulation can reach.

There were conversations going on beneath the waves of every Trump speech. Beings more in touch with the subconscious are more in touch with the the zeitgeist, through the collective unconscious, and are thus more readily struck by the bolts of inspiration that float through it.

Donald Trump’s subconscious spoke through him to the subconscious of enough of his voters to make them recognise an existential threat as old as this epigenetic subconscious, the battle between genders and the r/K gene war it produces. The conscious is confused, fleeting and easily distracted or manipulated by emotional responses to programming at that level. The ancient unconscious brain, the soul if you will, is less easily fooled.

There will be more on Conor McGregor in an upcoming feature blog on visualization. There will be more on Trump and Mike Cernovich in my upcomings blog review of MAGA Mindset.
