Opihi, the Menehune Fisher Boy
About 27 years ago, I was introduced to Shakti Gawain’s book “Creative Visualization”. Reading it drastically changed the way I live my life. Do we really have control over our destinies just by visualizing our dreams and thinking positive, affirming thoughts? Reflecting on my own life, my answer definitely is:” Yes, we do!” I have proven it to myself many times.
In the past, I manifested my dream of the “Home of My Heart” just by using visualization for the pleasure of it, without believing in anything. After this magical manifestation, I have made it a habit to meditate, visualize, affirm my beliefs, and think the right thought.
The results have been simply amazing, turning me into a true believer of the higher power and our oneness with the energies the Universe.
Listening to Mike Dooley’s audio program "Infinite Possibilities" has further strengthened my belief in “thoughts becoming the things and events of life” as well as inspired the creation of the Menehune boy Opihi.
Opihi gives the perfect example of how simple it is to create reality by using visualization combined with affirmative thoughts. Opihi imagines the things he would like to happen in detail.
Here is part of Opihi’s story:
Opihi loves to play. While he waits patiently for the right fish to come to his pole he visualizes what it will be like when his Menehune Kaukinis (cousins), Wiliwili, Mahimahi and Nalu, come down to the beach and they start playing together. Opihi imagines how they will swim in the ocean, build castles in the black sand, and play races with the black beach crabs. They will have a blast! Opihi knows that his thoughts are like seeds which grow into reality.
Sure enough: there come his Kaukinis, Wiliwili, Mahimahi, and Nalu and the fun begins!
Look at Opihi and let your thoughts too become the seeds of what you wish to harvest!
