Ever wonder how our reality comes into being? It’s a question that’s been pondered for eons by everyone from scholars to the exasperated parents of inquisitive toddlers. But, for those who understand and appreciate the practice of “conscious creation” (also known as “the law of attraction”), the answer is clear – it all begins with us and our thoughts, beliefs and intents. And now the specifics of how that process unfolds, coupled with colorful illustrative examples, is the subject of a recently released book.
In the newly updated edition of his seminal work, Get the Picture?!: Conscious Creation Goes to the Movies (ISBN 978-1505570168, 2014, originally published in 2007), author, film analyst and VividLife contributor Brent Marchant shows how what we experience is a product of what we believe. By outlining the principles of conscious creation philosophy and illustrating them with examples from the world of film, Marchant provides a cinematic road map to understanding how the world around us arises from our personal worlds within.
In addition to shedding light on how we view our world and how it materializes, conscious creation teaches us valuable lessons about personal empowerment practices. At its core, the philosophy maintains that we “consciously,” rather than randomly, create our reality through our beliefs and intents. But being aware of those beliefs and intents is the key. With that kind of understanding, Marchant says, we can work wonders in the existence we materialize for ourselves.
One might ask what any of this has to do with movies. “Movies are much more significant than we give them credit for,” Marchant says. “Movies can serve as personal mirrors. When we witness a character’s triumphs (or mistakes) on screen and how they either learn (or don’t learn) from them, we have an opportunity to learn about ourselves. We can analyze how the character’s thoughts and actions influence the world they live in, and that, in turn, can provide us with insight into how our own worldviews create the world around us.”
In each of Get the Picture?!’s 11 chapters, Marchant introduces a particular conscious creation concept and then presents five movies that illustrate the concept in question. Drawing from a broad range of film genres, the author examines how their various story lines and characters can help us all become adept conscious creators. By doing so, the author thus provides readers with an approach to understanding the process that’s both enlightening and entertaining.
