Wondering how to get what you want? A mind movie is one of the easiest and most effective ways to do it. And it’s no secret, you don’t need the Mind Movie software to create a killer mind movie. (But you would need some mad skillz!)
I recently made a mind movie for myself, and I am fascinated by how the format has evolved. I used to have a TON of photos, now I am much more selective…my last mind movie was somewhere around 9 minutes – this one is just 2. My statements are more encompassing, and less result-specific. For example, a statement like “My coaching practice has a waiting list of two weeks” is now replaced with “My business is thriving.” Can you see how the latter opens it up so that ANY business I choose to pursue can flourish? I’ve also gotten laser specific on the images. It’s just way more efficient that way. If you know exactly how you want something to be, or look, don’t settle for an image that’s anything less. Draw it yourself if you have to. If you settle in your mind movie, you’re settling in your results.
Do cover every key aspect of life, such as love, happiness, money, family, personal hobbies or interests, creativity, spirituality, contribution, health, gratitude, relationship, accomplishments.
Always focus on what you want, not what you don’t want — all your mind movie statements should be positive.
I’ve got some (moderately) mad skillz, so I used iMovie to make my mind movie. If you’re a bit lacking in the technical department, you can always use something like PowerPoint — easy, simple, fast.
Here’s how I did it:
1. I spent some time thinking, meditating, exploring what I want, then I got clear about exactly what I want.
2. I wrote my script. I put statements in the order that felt yummiest to me.
3. I selected 1 image for each statement.
4. I imported the images into iMovie.
5. I added the statements from my script, as titles.
6. I created transitions.
7. I added an intro title slide that says “Relax and absorb these images into your subconscious mind.”
8. I added a closing title slide that says “Thank you for this or even better. And so it is.”
9. I added music (I chose Van Halen’s “Right Now”).
10. I watched the finished movie to make sure it all felt delicious. This is a key step — here, I realized there were a few wording tweaks required.
11. I made adjustments.
12. I repeated step #10.
13. I exported the finished product as a QuickTime video.
14. Play, enjoy, receive!
You can do it too. Go for it!
