Some of you will think I'm joking, but seriously I am not.
Sometimes I use metaphoric forms of LOA visualisation. What do I mean? Well I go to alpha and I think about my intention and then I keep my mind very still, and allow my subconscious to generate an image representing that intention. Then I start playing with that intention.
On one occasion, my intention was to be very outstanding at work. I kept my mind very still, and the image of Beowulf popped into my mind. For those who don't know, Beowulf is a mythical hero who goes around killing big monsters etc. He's big, strong, powerful etc and gets into huge fights with all kinds of evil dragons etc.
So I played around with the image of Beowulf and worked with the idea of a "corporate warrior". I guess you could say that I did a "deep trance identification" with Beowulf. This is my blog record of the mind session: Promotion & Bonus & Outstanding Work Performance « Constructions of the Mind
What happened? In the next few days, I was an extremely bad-tempered and aggressive person at work. Like a dragon-slaying warrior who's not going to put up with any ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ from anyone. This is really not my normal self - usually I am quite mild-mannered and pleasant.
In addition, I spontaneously developed a number of physical injuries (even though I hadn't done anything, like play sports or carry heavy things etc). My neck hurt, and my knee hurt so bad I could not walk, and my finger became swollen.
My suspicion was that the injuries had something to do with visualising myself as Beowulf. This is what happens when you visualise yourself as someone who goes around having violent fights with big monsters. You suffer the physical ill-effects of doing all that fighting.
