He was possessed by the devil!!!

Recently after one of my speaking events in Florida, an elderly couple came up to me and thanked me for being funny and inspirational! “Thank you,” I said. “I appreciate your kind words!”


During my talk I tell the TUT story of how we used visualization to get TUT off the ground. I remind the audience how important and powerful visualization can be. The catch phrase I use is, “If you can see it, you can be it!”


Then I lead the audience through a guided visualization to give them the experience.  The gray haired gentleman told me that he is not able to visualize his dreams. Holding his cane, speaking in a raspy tone of voice, he said,


“Andy, every time I close my eyes all I see is black. I am 72 years old and I can’t visualize anymore. Can you help me?”


I told the gentleman he was possessed by the devil!


“Sir, what you need is an exorcism!”  I said. (Just kidding. I would not tell anybody that, except my mother).


I told him that when I close my eyes I, too, see black and so does everyone else. He looked shocked!


Interesting how he had created a false belief that something was wrong with him due to his age.


I then opened up my hand, holding it out in front of him. He stared at the palm of my hand with a perplexed look! I told him, “With your eyes open, I want you to imagine a red delicious apple in the palm of my hand!”


The key word their was imagine. Had I used the word ‘visualize’ his limiting belief would have taken over. Frozen like a popsicle, he stared at my hand for 3 seconds!  He looked up at me and smiled,


“Yes, I can see it!”


His wife smiled, she was thrilled!


I asked him, “How did you do it?”


He said, “It was a miracle.”


“No, it was your imagination creating the picture following your intention/desire.”


I then asked him what type of car he drives?


“A Buick.”


“What color is it?”




“Can you see it in your mind right now?”




The look on his face was priceless.


“Now look back into the palm of my hand. Do you see the red apple?”




“Okay, now I want you to close your eyes and imagine the apple in the palm of my hand.”


He opened his eyes after 3 seconds and said, “It’s a miracle, I can see the apple.”


I told him not to worry about seeing black and to practice visualizing with his eyes open and closed.


He and his wife thanked me again and left with big smiles.


Nobody sees perfect pictures in their mind. Think of visualizing as creating an impressionistic painting. The more you do it the better you get and, most importantly, you MUST feel the positive emotions behind your mental pictures! The emotion is the vibration and the Law of Attraction is responding to your vibration. How you feel is how you attract!


Now let me ask you, what have you visualized yourself being, doing or having today! Right now, for 68 seconds visualize yourself being the person you want to be.
