My Morning Meditation and Visualization

Written by Max Goldberg on July 12, 2011. Follow Max on Twitter: @livingmaxwell.

I learned how to meditate in college when I took a Transcendental Meditation class and have maintained a very serious practice over the past 11 years.

For some reason, I don’t remember doing it that consistently in the 90s. Most likely, it was the hard-partying lifestyle that got in the way.

Anyhow, my meditation practice is something that I cannot live without. It calms me down, centers me and gets me more focused. Nothing makes me more relaxed or present.

So, when I get up in the morning I sit and meditate for 20 minutes. The meditation is Transcendental Meditation, which uses a mantra as a way to keep the mind from wandering.

And after I finish meditating, I do something called Creating My Day.

I learned about Creating My Day from the movie, What the Bleep Do We Know? In my opinion, it is one of the most important movies ever made because it explains how our thoughts impact our reality, from a scientific standpoint.

Furthermore, What the Bleep Do We Know? was one of the three things that helped me recover from nearly 11 years of Prozac. It had that powerful of an impact on me.

What is Creating My Day?

Creating My Day is exactly what it sounds like. In my mind, I create my day and visualize exactly what I want to happen — the people I want to see, the things that I want to happen, etc. I tend to focus on the few most important goals rather than everything I want.

Furthermore, I try to imagine what it would “feel” like to have these things happen. How would it feel if I met person X and shook his hand. I try to tap into the emotions as much as possible since those serve as powerful attractors.

Once I have visualized what I want to happen, I then repeat the following out loud:

I am taking this time to create my day and I am infecting the quantum field.

The positive energy that radiates from my body and soul will attract amazing adventure, interaction with remarkable individuals and tremendous amount of joy, bliss, laughter, happiness and wealth, for myself and others.

I cannot wait for this day to unfold because today is a very, very special day.

For me, meditation is essential part of my life and I have had absolutely incredible experiences with Creating My Day.

What I have noticed about Creating My Day is the following. If I do not truly believe that something will happen, even if I visualize it, it won’t happen.

The key is not to be worried or nervous it won’t happen. If you truly believe something is going to happen, you don’t worry about it. And worrying about it means that your focus is on something that you don’t want to happen.

Try Creating My Day (use mine or write your own) for 30 straight days and watch what happens. You’ll be pretty amazed.

  3. Hello,

    I am also a meditator (is there such a word? :) ).
    Actually I am a Buddhist who practices Theravada method of meditation. Are you interested in trying this out? I think you will be able to be much calmer and enlightened, too.
