Don’t fear that the power of creative visualization can be used for harmful ends. Creative visualization is a means of unblocking or dissolving the barriers we ourselves have created to the naturally harmonious, abundant, and loving flow of the universe. It is only truly effective when it is used in alignment with our highest goals and purposes, for the highest good of all beings.
If someone should harmful or destructively selfish end, that person would only be demonstrating his or her ignorance of the law of karma. This is the same basic principle as the law of radiation and attraction, “As you sow, so shall you reap.” Whatever you try to create for another will always boomerang back to you. That includes both loving, helpful, or healing actions and negative, destructive ones. This means, of course, that the more you use creative visualization to love and serve others’ as well as your own highest ends, the more love, happiness, and success will just naturally find their way to you.
Just to make sure that you are aware of this, it’s a good idea to add the following phrase to any creative visualization process you do:
This, or something better,
Now manifests for me
In totally satisfying and harmonious ways,
For the highest good of all concerned.
As an example, if you are visualizing getting a job promotion, don’t envision the person above you being fired, but imagine him or her moving on to other, better things or a better, more fulfilling job, so that it works out for the good of all. You don’t need to understand or figure out how that will happen, or try to decide what is the best way it could work; simply assume that it is working out for the best, and let universal intelligence take care of the details.
