Positive visualization is one tool that is mentioned in New Age philosophy to gain what you desire. Another one is affirmations. I’ve tried both, and I’ve the question remains..if these really work, why am I still an poor, unknown artist? I think there are mental blocks which making positive visions and thoughts can’t erase. In other words, If you’re so smart, why ain’t you rich?
So I do my work simply to record what I find beautiful, now. Here’s one of my uncomplicated all time favorites, “Cloud Over Greenwich”. It’s from a vision I had while meditating in Greenwich, Connecticut apartment.
Here’s another sample of trying positive visualization through artwork. This example is mixed. In search of a significant other, I designed a drawing of the Perfect Masculine. Truth is, I did find someone (named Richard), but so much later, I don’t know if it could be considered cause and effect. Anyway, here’s the piece, note the masculine elements in it…the peacock feathers, the lion in the full moon. This is titled “Richard, Before I Knew Him”.
There has been much talk among New Age enthusiasts, and recently, even those in the mainstream about positive visualization as a method to getting what you want in life. I’m not so sure about the truth of this, I think perhaps one must be clear of all negative thoughts to get it to work.
I figured since art was a way of concentrating on an image, shouldn’t it possibly be a tool for positive visualization? I am posting some examples of my experiments, with notes on whether they worked or not.
