Want It, See It, Get It” (Amacon), the newest book by Gini Graham Scott, Ph.D., often departs from the usual way most of us think. Gini believes the techniques she espouses work because they get you more in touch with your intuition, your inner voice – whatever you want to call this very powerful force within you. Unfortunately, in today’s society “This force isn’t given the attention it deserves.” Gini believes the reason is that “We emphasize solving problems and working out issues logically because of this emphasis on being rational.”
Gini doesn’t oppose rational, logical methods to handle problems, but she suggests we tap “Into our intuitive, non-rational side to gain insights and also understandings that – when combined with rational techniques or used alone – can help make even better decisions and choices. This inner sensing and intuitive part of ourselves is linked to our ability to use mental imagery or visualization [which] is something anyone can do. It’s just a question of learning the method.” After a time “You’re able to basically visualize something very clearly. It’s not only affirming and visualizing but also going through the steps to turn that visualization into reality.”
Gini wrote her book to share “The visualization techniques I’ve been using and living my life with for over twenty-five years. It seems like the time when people need this because of transformation in the economy and economic turmoil.” She revised some of her earlier works – like ‘Mind Power” and ‘The Empowered Mind: How to Harness the Creative Force within You” – and “merged and updated them” for this book.
Gini hopes readers integrate her ideas into their everyday lives to “make what they want happen and then use the principals to create their own techniques as well, so they can incorporate symbols or beliefs to work with any kind of religion [or] spiritual tradition.” Before readers tackle her book, she added, “They should know what they [want to change about] their lives, which is where this book could help. One of the techniques is to start off and ask yourself certain questions.”
In Chapter 10 she suggests creating “a mental script.” Then by “rehearsing what you want to learn in your mind….you re-enforce what you have learned through physical practice.” More, “…working with the skill you want to acquire in your mind…see yourself performing it perfectly….” Of course, it’s hard work and if you make mistakes “in your mental practice…you’ll make the same mistake in the real world” -because “the mind doesn’t distinguish between what you really do and what you do mentally.”
In sum, Gini’s latest book is practical and readable and, with easy-to-learn techniques, aims at making it possible for readers to access “and direct their intuitive power,” so that their goals are attainable. Her books – she’s written over fifty – are available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and numerous local and online bookstores.
