In my wanderings through the mists on the Internet, I came upon a site called MindMovies.com. It interested me for a bit; then I moved on.
But when I checked my email, I had received a message from someone who raved about these Mind Movies. Too much of a co-incidence for me! I downloaded their free movies, and have enjoyed watching them twice a day...on arising and just before bedtime.
The movies, six of them in all, are a series of photos set to music with affirmations, using the present tense. They are made with joy...one can tell easily...and so, it is a wonderful way to begin and end my day with these little mind movies.
I've been thinking about what I would want in my own personalized movie and have discovered it is not as easy as I thought it might be. When one has the option of being anywhere, anyhow, anyway one desires, when the floodgates of ideas open...well, suffice it to say, my personal movie will either be far too long, or it will need major editing...
Or perhaps, I will require two movies...one in which my only focus will be Mother Earth, and her people. Perhaps, if everyone played a Mind Movie twice a day regarding the health and well-being of the planet we live on, it might bring about desirable change that much more quickly.
One of my movies will be about our move back to the general area in which family resides. And if I'm going to dream, if I'm going to manifest, then I will manifest big...and hang the expense.
I'll show photos of homes by the sea. The favoured home will have a mature, settled feel about it, with fruit trees and vegetable gardens in place. Out of the curved front window, from the living room, one can see a long, green space running down to the cliff, where stairs enable one to reach the surf...
The home is older...it has the creaks and groans associated with aged wood and nails coming loose over time. It is a small home, with just enough room for the two of us, our dogs and the odd grandchild or two who stays the night.
But for all its cosy feel, or perhaps because of it, the home has wonderful detailed wood-working within it. There are built-in bookcases, wainscoting and mouldings everywhere. Candlelight glows on a ledge within a stone fireplace, blackened in places from previous owners who built fires under the mistaken assumption the damper was open.
And the bathrooms...oh!the bathrooms! There is tile everywhere...wonderful, glazed tile from some warm, Mediterranean place. The shower is an aficionado's delight...with inset places for all the accoutrement's one requires to take a proper shower. And with a wonderful, rainy showerhead, one which takes the day's hits and blows, allowing them to flow down the drain with the softest of ease.
It is a big room, this bathroom. Since we own all the land within eyesight (or perhaps we live next to a park?) privacy is not an issue. And so, one wall is glass, with doors which open to the Sea.
Taking a shower next to Ocean's backdrop feels purely right!
Our home has a Forest rimming it...a deep, dark Forest, one which both my grandchildren love. There are many trails running through it, each with its own delights, but all of them lead back to Nammy's house, and a warm hug.
The front of the home faces the Ocean. Our bedroom window also faces towards the breathing of the Sea...her heavy, angry, stormy breath and her soft, swishing, lapping kiss of the shore entwining themselves into the deepest part of me.
Throughout my movie, I will place pictures of people running, laughing and playing, exhibiting a joy for life. Those people are me...it's how I am and how I want to be, with reference to the running part.
My health will be perfect...I will no longer be required to take masses of pills. I will show smiling, happy faces...health shining out of every pore.
I could go on. It takes awhile to decide on how and what one wants to visualize and therefore manifest. One wants to be sure.
Visualization works well for me, in meditation, but it doesn't fall so easily into place for others. Being able to "see" a dream makes it so much more real.
MindMovies made me think about where I'm going and where I want to be, something not often thought about by this going-with-the-flow fish.
Not a bad thing, at all!
