Introduction xi

1 Control and Direct Your Personal Destiny 1
People visualize whether they know it or not. Visualization is creative. Visualizing for what you want. Getting all levels of yourself to cooperate. The Eastern mystic and the caveman: image, action, chant. A vivid imagination? Link it to reality. When to talk, when to be silent. How to make a start. Daydreams can help: think of what you want most in the world. "Seeing" a remembered image. Useful aids. You visualize with your mind, not with your eyes.

2 The Potent Circle 23
Tension is a natural prelude to action. Unresolved tension is the enemy, so cultivate relaxation for inner progress and bodily health. A yogi's secret. The Creative Plan of Relaxation. Your real self is pure joy. The Potent Circle: greater bodily awareness and relaxation. Rhythmic Breath, the necessary accompaniment to Creative Relaxation.

3 You Have a Great Future 43
Organizing your creative visualization practices. Getting maximum help from the subrational levels of the psyche but not letting them take control. The higher self, which should control and direct the rational mind. Our need to realize we are an integral part of the universe. Plan joyfully for your future, and sing about it.

4 The Life-Sustaining Flow 57
The true source of plenty needs to be understood for successful creative visualization. The four levels of human existence and of the external universe: divine, mental, astral, material. Interaction of the levels. Creating a channel for divine power. Transience of changes caused by astral means only. Do not inhibit your invocation of higher powers by hidden guilt feelings. Ethics of creative visualization. New Testament teachings. The meaning of money. The higher self. Bringing through power and charging yourself with it.

5 Spiritual Abundance 77
Work with your one spiritual source of supply, not with the many possible material ones. The objective you visualize is at once yours: astrally, mentally, spiritually. The material realization is to come. Why you are warned not to visualize a material source of supply. Other mistakes to avoid. Be frequently aware of the existence of your spiritual source of supply. Song dispels fear.

6 The Stairway of Success 95
"Nothing succeeds like success." Do not attempt to try to explain your secret: just manifest what it does for you. Other people"s imaginations will help you to further successes so long as those people can identify with you. The Charging Technique and the Master Method: their use in creative visualization to help yourself and others. Working "divination in reverse" with the Charging Technique.

7 Star Points and Multiplication 123
Minor techniques of creative visualization are less sure than the full Master Method because they are less complete, but they are still very powerful. Their special value while you still need practice in the Foundation Work. Benefits of the Star Technique include bringing opportunities. The Star Technique and how to use it. What happens if you already have some of what you need but it is in some way inadequate. The "secret" examined. The Multiplication Technique.

8 Dare to Be Powerful 141
Creative visualization for objectives you may not find simple to visualize. Build for outer assets and inner development in balanced measure to enjoy the best of both. Special values of Creative Relaxation. Program to break a habit: how to stop smoking as an example. Creative visualization for better memory: speeches, drama, facts. Memorizing words versus memorizing meanings. General absent-mindedness. What is a gizmo? Family birthdays"elementary astrology can turn "words" into "meanings."

Appendix A: Terminating a Creative Visualization Process 163
Usually when one objective in creative visualization has been sufficiently attained and the conscious mind resolves upon the next objective, the emotional-instinctual nature will follow its lead. Why this may not always be so. Technique to terminate effectively a creative visualization process if necessary. Use of this technique to stop the visualization of an image created involuntarily.

Appendix B: Helping Others See Your Vision 171
You need to be able to help other people see your vision and act on it. Teachers, preachers, politicians, attorneys, lecturers, and the many others to whom this ability is vital must begin by making themselves as positive and dynamic as possible with Creative Relaxation. Do not stand in the way of the picture you want to create. People close the doors of their rational mind; they cannot close the doors of their emotional-instinctual nature. The way to win a fair hearing. Ethics of persuasion. How nonethical persuasion breaks down. What to visualize and how to talk about it.

Appendix C: The Bright Lamp of Knowledge 183
Wisdom texts to aid your creative visualization learning and motivation.

Appendix D: Creative Visualization in Prayer and Worship 189
Creative visualization comes more easily to followers of a religion with established images. How to develop your personal prayer and worship rituals. The relationship between the image and the spirit. The building of your altar. Steps to development of a prayer ritual. Using an intermediary being. Maintaining your focus on a particular deity.

Appendix E: Maintaining Good Health 199
You can use creative visualization to help you maintain good health. Creative visualization and weight control. Creative visualization can help you achieve deep, restful sleep. The deep mind is a powerful instrument that needs to be controlled by the direct, rational mind. Breathing correctly is essential.

We all strive for more health, happiness, and hope in our lives. This enhanced well-being can be as simple as integrating any number of aroma-energetic practices into your life; these practices combine the powerful effects of aromatherapy and energy for a more powerful result.
