Screening My Way to Success
Of all the tools and techniques I’ve learned from PSI Seminars, Screen of the Mind has got to be my favorite. I’ve used this simple meditation to manifest everything from new living room furniture to a more fit physique to playing a sold-out show at the world-famous Whisky A Go-Go. Most recently, I used Screen of the Mind to land the career of my dreams and create a life of liberty and abundance.
Last year, my amazingly brave 9-year old brother was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a bone cancer that rapidly destroyed his leg. Living in California, 3,000 miles away from my family in New York, proved to be very challenging at that time. I decided to take six weeks off from work and go home to support my family. The experience was life-changing, and in ways one might not expect.
I returned to California certain of one thing: it was time for a change. I would have stayed longer in New York, except I had to get back to work; I had to pay the bills. I realized that I was a prisoner of my own making. I had structured my life with very limited liberty, and after seeing my baby brother’s life threatened, it became clear to me that there simply is no time to waste. If I was going to live a worthwhile life for however long I might be blessed with one, I had to do it NOW.
As I usually do, I turned to the PSI Seminars philosophies. I studied Thomas Willhite’s manuscripts, built a powerful support network, filled my home with positive triggers, attended my seventh Principia, and took massive action towards creating change. Since it had worked for me many times before, I committed to a Screen of the Mind meditation every day for as long as it took to make my life of liberty a reality.
It took nearly three months.
One afternoon I lied down and closed my eyes to begin my Screen of the Mind. I started seeing the “movie” I had been watching on repeat for months when I opened my eyes, gasped, and sat straight up: I had done it! I realized that I had to get a bigger vision, because I had manifested everything – and I mean everything, right down to new bedroom carpet – that I had been focusing on for almost three months.
While the changes began almost immediately after I started, it wasn’t until this one day that I realized the vision was complete. If I told you the details of how things happened, they might seem unbelievable, yet I’ve learned to expect the unexpected when placing my order with the Universe.
My dream job, for example, was not a position that I applied for or was even aware of! I was hosting a fundraiser to raise money for the 3rd Annual Giving Day to provide Christmas gifts for children living in a Los Angeles shelter, when the owner of the venue – a fellow PSI graduate – took notice of my public speaking skills and passion for being of service. We began a dialog that led to me being hired as an Associate Producer for Royer Studios. I knew it was the right position for me when I was told that the company is structured so that I can work from anywhere in the world!
Looking back on the movie I was “screening” sends shivers of excitement down my spine. What I saw for almost three months is now the life I live. I have an amazing career where I get to do what I love and make a positive difference in the lives of children; I have the liberty to go where I want when I want; and perhaps most important, my new career keeps me in a state of growth where I am both supported and challenged by a boss who sees my greatness and holds me to it. We use the PSI success principles in our business every day, and the results are phenomenal!
PSI Seminars’ Screen of the Mind is a valuable technique that anyone can use to create change in his or her life. It’s been nearly nine years since I first took the Basic Seminar, and I’ve shared the class with many people throughout that time. I tell them, “this is the secret to my success!” Screen of the Mind is a tool you want in your toolbox, and one you want to share with those you care about.
With all this talk of work, I’m thinking it’s time for some play…perhaps a trip to Indonesia. Time to make a new movie for my Screen of the Mind!
