Published 4/2015 English

Course Description

Have you been using vision boards, goal setting, and lots of mental effort to create more of what you want in life, with little to no results? 

Let me guess, you've got images on your phone you look at several times a day, mind movies on your desk top, and think about your dreams and aspirations constantly. You even feel guilty when you don't because you once heard an expert that if you don't hold your visions in your mind, nothing will happen.

So, what gives? Why can't you make your dreams turn into realities, faster?

Turning thoughts to things, specifically your visions into experiences, isn't about intellect fortitude. It's not about how creative you are in your thoughts or how disciplined in your mental habits. 

Visualization is an intellectual faculty, yes, but one that begins on a much more basic, simpler level. Visualization has been massively misunderstood for centuries. It's time to change that, clearing up misunderstandings, rumors, and myths.

In VM 201, you're learning how to use the innate tool of visualization, also known as imagination, to assist you in creating more of the good stuff in life. Using the 3 most effective learning tools of audio, video, and text, you'll discover what visualization truly is, how it works, and why visualization success is not about thinking harder or dreaming bigger. You'll learn why it's difficult to mentally envision the unforeseeable future, why attempting this slows your results, and what you can do to soften your angst.

VM 201 is for advanced, self-motivated students who thrive on taking their learning—what to do and when to do it, into their own hands. Because of the unique design of this class, the transformational activities are strategically interwoven directly into the text. This is not a step-by-step, or a do this and then that and you'll get XYZ result, class. It caters to the creative student who's an independent decision maker. Students are required to choose the right activities for them, independently integrate the ideas in real life, and SEEK GUIDANCE when they have questions or concerns about anything.

If after reading this description, watching the free preview videos, and doing your research (google is a fantastic tool), you're excited to enroll, I CAN'T WAIT TO HAVE YOU IN CLASS! For those who still have reservations after doing what I just suggested, keep in mind there's a 30 days money back guarantee. I encourage you to go through as much of the material as you can before that offer expires. It's not that I don't want you to stay in class, but this might not be the correct course level for you. I'm willing to help you learn the material and integrate it as best as I can, but truly ... only inspired students who are ready to do this mind-blowing, reality shifting work should enroll!

PLEASE NOTE: As of December 1, 2016, this course is under renovation. I'm in the process of creating new course goals, curriculum, and videos, as well as updated the PDF's.

What are the requirements?

  • A postive attitude and open mind are a must. We're on the leading edge of thought with this material so those who want to be ahead of the curve are encouraged to play.
  • This course has an incredible amount of rich content and written material. It's ideal for students who love reading and who are independently motivated to achieve. Students who enroll are expected to do the required work.
  • This is about understanding who you really are, a vibrational being having a physical experience. It's spiritual in tone and approach, more than anything else.
  • You won't find scientific proof, that thought become things, in this course. This class is not about convincing you this approach is valid. It's about deepening and enriching the understanding of those who already understand that everything in the universe begins as vibration.
  • This course goes way beyond conventional ideas about visualization such as vision boards, making your goals happen using mind movies, or forcing yourself see things in your mind so you can make them happen in reality. Instead, we dive deep into the more transmutable ideas of frequency, vibration, vibrational alignment as creative assistants.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Understand what visualization is (which is NOT vision boards and MAKING stuff happen using your imagination) and how to most effectively use this powerful tool to improve your personal and professional results.
  • Increase your concentration, focus, motivation, and inspiration on turning thoughts to things using visualization.
  • Develop powerful habits of thinking and feeling using a new, contemporary understanding of visualization which increases the individual's realization of new, improved results.
  • Take the vision, if you have one, of what you want to happen in life out of your head and into something you can taste, touch, see, hear and smell.

Who is the target audience?

  • A self starter, who doesn't need traditional fill in the blank learning. Students must be self-directed and motivated.
  • Someone who learns best through reading, with audio and video as additional support. This course has a lot of rich, text support.
  • This class is for spiritually minded students who have are excited about uncovering how visualization is evidence of the connection between the physical, and spiritual, self.
  • Students who see visions in their mind's eye, and are excited to make this special form of creativity translate to tangible experiences.

I love that you're so dedicated to getting your awesome results that you're willing to lay the proper foundation with this pre-work. Yeah, you! You're awesome.

This section describes how the lessons are strategically designed to help you get what you came for: more money, better relationships, better health, increased happiness and more tangible success. In each of the 5 main sections, we start with a realistic fiction story. However, please note that they only thing fictional about these stories is the main character: the scupltor. Every thing else about the stories is real, scientific based information. I've woven it in this way to entertain, keep you focused and not waste any of your time. Fiction is an incredible tool to help you visualize, or use your imagination. The rest of the section is all about giving your real life examples of successful people, and sharing how you can apply practices for yourself, today.

There are no "extra" fluff or filler information in these sections. Every, single word is intentional and focused on helping you get what you want.

Ah, success. It feels like it's there for some and not for others. The reality is that is that it's there for everyone of us. Most of us just don't know how to find it. In this section you're going to learn the strategies to creating any level of success—personal or professional—that you desire. We deep dive into this concept using incredibly simple language so that you know EXACTLY that to do. We explore incredible real life examples such as a 70 year-old who is jump starting her professional speaking career. You don't want to miss this one!

Success is a habit.
TA: Success has 4 steps.

Turning thoughts to things happens all day long. What most people mean when they refer to "turning a thought to a thing" is manifesting more of the stuff they want ... not more of the stuff they don't want.

In this impromptu video, I walk you through how a vision of mine—writing a children's book—started and where it is now. I show, step-by-step, you how this vision is expanding and why it's happening so fast.

The final time frame from the potent fertilization of my idea using intention ... to it's birth is estimated at around 2-3 months total.

As I say in this video, this is a vision evolving and coming into full manifested form right now. (March 2, 2016.)


This is how I've used visualization to personally get more comfortable public speaking.


Have you ever considered how your decision of success might be holding you back? Write out your definition. Be honest. Don't write what you think you should write, or what the correct answer is (there's isn't one), just write what you believe it is in the most honestly way you can.


This creation box activity will help you become more aware of how you feel. Emotional awareness is critical to the success of your turning thoughts to things. Be sure to do this activity and then take the muscle that your building in this activity and transfer it over to your visualizations.


Visualization is the best emotional stabilizer we have. Even better than a shot of vodka. When you hold the image of what you want on the screen of your mind, and you feel good about it's inevitable completion, you can move yourself out of frustration and into a state of ease about it not being complete ... anytime, anywhere, quickly. It is the ultimate replacement for any emotional crutch.

Ally Loprete's Voicemail
2 pages

I don't make it a habit of sharing my personal voicemails publicly. In fact, I don't do it at all. But after some consideration, Ally and I decided that this particular voicemail had brilliant content that might be helpful to you as you learn to be a more competent "visualizer". This recording is of a voicemail from my dear friend, Ally Loprete, left on my phone in March, 2015. It's incredible, inspiring and intimate; it's a private moment between two great friends.

So why am I sharing it with you?

Because I believe that if you're struggling with a similar issue as Ally was (at the time), that using her "pull back" visualization technique might help you. And understanding how to visualization is what this course is all about.

Ally Loprete is an extraordinary visionary, a coach, a teacher, a leader, a hero, a friend, a pioneer and so much more. She has a heart as big as the heavens and as pure as solid gold. She is leading a revolution in the television industry that will change how we not just feel and see ourselves, but how we act as moms, as women, and people in society. She is currently a popular radio personality with a show on iHeart radio and is producing and starring in a soon-to-be-released reality TV show helping entrepreneurial parents live better, more abundant lives.

PS. And yes ... I realized I misspelled "brilliance" when I saved the file on my computer. Thank you for overlooking that fact. My fingers are not the best translators of my thoughts, at times. Also, because I am sharing this and it is personal, I thank you in advance for allowing it to live here, in this program only, and be enjoyed by us as a family of "visioneers" and not download it or place it on the internet. Thank you so much.

Section 3: Bonus Section
30 pages

Would you believe that WHAT you believe is the foundation of your success in life? It is. As good, or as scary, as that sounds, it's true. In this lesson I walk you through how to change your limiting beliefs about yourself, how much money you can make, how much health you can have and what you're able to accomplish in life ... so that you can finally get it!

How do you feel about this?

There is a new theory developing about the mind. For 60 years we've been talking about the mind and how the subconscious portion contains limiting beliefs that are sabotaging our results. We've spent years trying to figure out how to "reprogram" it so it will behave. But what if we've been wrong this whole time? What is we don't actually have a subconscious mind? Find out more in this audio.

Here is a video I created to help explain this idea better. What you might discover is that while you have an unconscious mind and unconscious processes such as the sleep state and bodily functions that we don't consciously think about, it might serve you to begin questioning whether or not we have a subconscious mind and thoughts. It might be just the thing to set you free to get better and faster results.

In this lesson I teach you how to grow your awareness about how you feel, from a whisper to what I describe as a "super awareness".

This new super-awareness that your developing is you key to expansive and continual results getting. It's help me have smoother relationships with my kids, create best selling books for both myself and my 12 year-old daughter, start a (paid) public speaking career, earn as much as $5,000 in one day and much more.

Think of desire as the Tsunami of emotions.
