dyakub - have you ever read "The Power of Positive Thinking" by Norman Vincent Peale? In that brief book there is a story about a woman whose marriage was failing. Every night for months she envisioned her estranged husband coming home and sitting in his favorite chair and being loving and caring. Night after night and week after week until one day there he was.
That is the short version.
But that story fits the concept of envisioning or using intention to create a relationship.
I recently needed to have contact with someone who was angry with me and refusing to respond to my e-mails about setting up a meeting so I could receive the work I had paid a significant amount of money for. I was frustrated and angry and every now and then the thought crossed my mind that I might have to take legal action. But I replaced those thoughts with a vision of her responding and coming to meet me with a pleasant continence. Within 10 days I received her e-mail and established a meeting which was conducted pleasantly and successfully.
I believe it works but I think that believing in it helps me be consistent and regular with it.
