YOU'LL SEE IT WHEN YOU BELIEVE IT
The following excerpt is from the self help
psychology book, Be Your Own Therapist.
The statement, "You'll see it when you believe it," is contrary
to much of what we have learned in this materialistic society.
Materialism is not just the gathering of goods to me but also
includes the belief that if I can't sense it with one or more of
my five senses, then it is suspect. The idea that one might
choose to believe something before actually sensing it is
considered daft. Nevertheless, such a so-called daft idea can
lead to much increased happiness and the possibility of
manifesting the impossible. Impossible cures, improbable events,
unexpected windfalls and happy surprises await those who believe
(or pretend or imagine) first. For more detailed information I
recommend an important book by Wayne Dyer and titled the same as
the above subheading, You'll See It When You Believe It.
|Our emotional responses are caused by our thinking about the situation, not the situation itself. Most of us erroneously believe otherwise.
Is it the belief in abundance that triggers the windfall? Is it
the belief in a cure for an incurable disease that triggers the
healing? Is it the belief in oneself that triggers a creative
leap? Is it the pretend-belief in thinness that triggers the
reduction in weight for an overweight person? One common
pattern seems to be that my unconscious often follows my
conscious wishes and my conscious visualizations, thus producing
so-called impossible cures and unexpected windfalls.
Unfortunately for my conscious ego, my lifeplan may interfere
with manifesting some of my conscious wishes. For example, if I
am learning the lessons of relationship this lifetime, then a
conscious wish on my part for years of isolation will not likely
My judgments as to the possibility or impossibility of a future
event can be as tyrannical as my other right/ wrong and good/
bad judgments discussed earlier in this chapter. If I judge that
event to be impossible, then it likely will be impossible for
me. Yet if I judged it as possible, it might be. If you believe
that you can cure your incurable cancer (there are people who
have gone before you who have done so), then it may be possible.
Dr. Carl Simonton has discovered important truths about
selfhealing by cancer patients by the selfuse of imagery. This
healing has confounded conventional medical wisdom.
Could my beliefs in a dangerous and unjust world be causing
added violence and injustice in my life? Do my cynicism and
pessimism draw dreadful experiences to me, instead of being the
result of such experiences? "You will see it when you believe
it" may initially seem a bit crazy, but if true, it implies that
we would serve ourselves best by cultivating our optimism and
our hopefulness. Pollyanna was obviously happy. Could it also be
true that she was much more intelligent and wise than her
