If you are using visualization to tell the Universe what you want then you're using it as a step one tool, but the main benefit and the reason that visualization is so powerful is that it can be used as a step three process for allowing.
The kind of visualization that you do in step one which is asking, is not the same type of visualization that you do for allowing. In the visualization that you do for asking basically you put details in; you tell the universe exactly what you want and how you want it. This type of visualization should only ever be done once because you only need to ask the Universe once.
When you place an order for online delivery with Amazon on or any other online shipper, once the order is placed you know they've got it, you don't place the order again and again. In the same way you don't have to place the order again and again and again with the Universe you only ever ask the Universe once.
As long as you are asking you are not allowing. If you are in step one, you cannot simultaneously also be in step three, that would be like putting the car in first gear and fourth gear at the same time.
So how do you do that? How do you go into allowing? You do that by simply enjoying your visualization. If you keep going back to the thing that you've been asking for, you're creating massive attachment to the outcome which is going to push the results that you want further away from you. So, visualize things that make you happy, like going to the beach, or going for a hike - things that you enjoy doing that you can actually feel joy inside.
Abraham teaches us that we don’t need to work too hard. Manifesting is about feeling the feeling of joy. The Universe doesn’t care about the subject of your thought – it just responds to the vibration of your emotion. It doesn’t matter if you visualize the pile of money or relationship or health you want – you could visualize yourself riding a flying carpet and as long as you were visualizing to have fun and without the intention to “make” it happen then you would be allowing all sorts of wonderful things into your life.
Much love and appreciation,
