We are always creating and recreating our lives. Our bodies store and then release energy in the form of thoughts, feelings, and actions. Energy always follows the path of least resistance, and that path of least resistance is determined by the preset images in your subconscious mind (see our article The Path of Least Resistance). To create something new, you must create new images. These new images must dominate your mind before they can manifest, and the best way to achieve this is to develop a compelling vision, one filled with passion.
You are the universe’s perfect creative machine. But how do you focus all of your available creative energy on your new vision? The first step is to develop a compelling vision filled with passion because passion is the emotional energy that binds your thoughts, feelings, and actions into one cohesive unit. It is a force of nature that has transformed the world.
Let’s look at how your preset images control your behavior. Later in the creative process, we will go into more detail about how to create a compelling, yet achievable, vision. Picture this: your spouse has been on a weeklong hectic business trip. She is due home Saturday but surprises you and comes home Friday. She was able to catch the redeye and is exhausted from her long journey. But upon her early arrival, she finds the house is not up to her preset internal image of cleanliness. Your spouse’s vision of tidiness does not match the environment that you have created in her absence; plainly stated, the house is a mess, and she is not happy. Despite her exhaustion, this environment creates a powerful internal tension for her to clean the house, to align the images. Your spouse releases a significant amount of energy as she vigorously cleans, and this energy release stops when the house’s appearance matches her internal image of how the house should look. Matching the images relieves the tension, and only then will she stop cleaning.
