Below is the Guided Visualization that ASPH Member David Harrod used at the April Meeting.




“It is based on the 1910 book, The Science of Getting Rich, by Wallace Wattles, from which I paraphrased freely.


The book is available free at

David Harrod, CH

All right, close your eyes and relax a moment, shake off the stresses of the day and allow yourself to sense more of what surrounds you than usual.  The space you occupy has temperature, texture, hardness and softness, sounds, silence, taste, and personality.  Sense them…NOW…as you let yourself…Go into a peaceful and relaxing state of mind.  Good.  You are doing just fine.

Now, take a deep, relaxing breath and hold it for a moment of tranquility before exhaling…slowly.  Feel the calm and inner peace this breath brings to you.  Feel the fullness and richness of this present moment as you… take another deep relaxing breath.  Exhale slowly as you…just let go.  Super.

Take another deep breath and hold it…one...two…three.  Exhale slowly, releasing those cares you may and let the problems of the day just slip away as you …just let them go.   They are now behind you and cannot exist again in this present moment without your assent and effort to maintain them.  Nod if you agree….to…just let them go for good.  You are now SO relaxed and going deeper relaxed with every breath you take and every word I say.  Nod if …you are very relaxed.  You are doing just fine.  

We live for our body, our mind, and our spirit.  Neither aspect of self is greater or holier than the other.  Therefore, we must have UNRESTRICTED access to EVERYTHING we need in order to reach our highest potentials of body, mind, and spirit, and attain our greatest fulfillment in life.   To do so means we must become abundant.  Allow the abundant universe to make it so in your life…NOW. 

I believe in a fantastic Creator who wants us all to have every good thing in life we seek in earnest. As children of the universe, the creator of all things wants us to have the very best life can offer.   For this reason I am not shy in asking for what I want because the intelligent universe, of which we are a part, ALREADY KNOWS our individual needs and is more than willing to answer them abundantly.  True too, our desire for abundance will be answered with no harm to anyone else.  The abundant universe has plenty for all.

Our conditioned views of what we “deserve” or are “entitled to” have no place here.   We are incapable of gauging what real abundance is and our conditioned views serve only to prevent us from receiving the abundance the Creator has in store for us.   Discard your preconceived notions of what you are entitled to…NOW… and remain open in the days ahead to what the universe is trying to send to you.  Wonderful.   

In a moment I’m going to count from one to four and on the count of four, you may open your eyes, feeling refreshed and abundant, free to enjoy all your present moments free of past problems and future worries.

One… The fulfillment of your desires is the goal of the intelligent universe.  Believe that what you ask for will be yours and it shall be

Two…The living and intelligent universe wants you to be abundant and have all aspects of your life unfold to their highest potential

Three… Be grateful daily for what you have and what YOU WILL RECEIVE.  Gratitude is the oil of abundance.

Four… Wide awake, feeling physically lighter and problem free, with a new understanding that abundance is both your destiny and the priority of the intelligent universe to fulfill.  How do you feel?
