What is a ‘Mind-Movie’?
A mind movie is a personalized way for you to re-wire your brain in any way you wish. Later in this article I’ll give you a link to a free piece of software that will quickly allow you create your own.
Are you aware of the saying,”
“You must BE something before you can HAVE something“
It’s true. In order to be successful in any endeavor you must become like those who are already successful in that field. Let’s take the overweight person who wants a rock hard body and six pack abs.
So long as they still think of themselves as a fat person they will severely impede their progress. They’ll:
* Lose enthusiasm after a short while
* Be tempted to cheat on their diet (because that’s who they are)
* Be more likely to skip a workout when they don’t feel like doing it
* Rationalize failure because they say, “This is just the way I am“.
It is NOT just the way you are; it’s the way you’ve thought yourself to be and you can choose differently.
How Do I Become A Different Type of Person?
To become the type of person who already has what it is you want, you need to change how you see yourself at a subconscious level. One great way is to create a mind movie of how exactly you want your life to be.
As you watch your mind movie over and over again, your repeatedly suggest to the subconscious mind that this is your new present reality; new neural pathways will be made in your brain. When the overweight individual begins to identify more with the slim version of themselves than what he or she sees in the mirror, they’ll move towards their goal on autopilot without fear or doubt.
What Is A Mind Movie?
A mind movie is simply a slide show presentation of images with accompanying positive affirmations. You can also add motivating background music. It may sound simple but I promise it’s very powerful!
You select the pics you like from around the web, create some empowering statements and pick the music of your choice. From there all you have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the show. You will be programming yourself in new, exciting and empowering ways!
How To Create a Mind Movie?
Take a look at the goals you have for your body and think of images that might inspire you to achieve them. If you want six pack abs go to google image search and find some pics there that motivate the socks off you. Get all the pictures you love and save them onto your hard drive.
Open Photo Story, it will look like this:
Select ‘Begin a new story‘ and hit ‘Next‘
Click on ‘Import Pictures’ and select all the pictures you have saved on your hard drive that motivate you towards your goals.
After this click ‘Next‘ again and type in the powerful affirmations you want to overlay the pictures with. For example, ‘I Look Great!‘ when your ripped abs appear, or ‘I Feel Powerfully Confident With My New Body‘ when you see a picture of the more muscular body that you want. Please note that it is important to word these statements in the present tense as if they’ve already occurred. You are training yourself to see this as your present reality, not a future one – this is important.
After you have typed your affirmations hit ‘Next‘. You now have the option to narrate the slide show yourself. It may be useful to hear yourself state the affirmation as the movie plays but it isn’t necessary. Click ‘Next‘ again.
On this screen click ‘Select Music’ and select the motivational music of your preference from your hard drive. Hit ‘Next‘ when done.
Then just pick a location on your computer in which to save this preview of your new life! 🙂
When you hit ‘Next‘ at this stage the program will build your story and the following screen will give you the option of watching it. There you go, you’re all set!
I recommend that you watch your movie twice a day or more if you feel you have the time, but never to the extent that it becomes a chore. Prepare to be dazzled! I just love this little shot of excitement in the mornings and evenings.
