I wonder which of these resources is more effective, or ... should apply both?

You must have read about this from Illusions, the Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah, when Richard is trying to manifest the blue feather.

'To bring anything into your life, imagine that it's already there. "

"Like what? Like my lovely lady?"

"Anything. Not your lady. Something small, at first. "

"I'm supposed to practice now?"


"OK...A blue feather."

He looked at me blankly. "Richard? A blue feather?"

"You said anything not a lady something little."

He shrugged. "Fine. A blue feather. Imagine the feather. Visualize it, every line and edge of it, the tip, V-splits where it's torn, fluff around the quill. Just for a minute. Then let it go."

I closed my eyes for a minute and saw an image in my mind, five inches long, iridescent blue to silver at the edges. A bright clear feather floating there in the dark.

"Surround it in golden light, if you want. That's a healing thing, to help make it real but it works in magnetizing, too."

I surrounded my feather in gold glow. "OK."

"That's it. You can open your eyes now."

I opened my eyes. "Where's my feather?"

"If you had it clear in your thought, it is even this moment barreling down on you like a Mack truck."

"My feather? Like a Mack truck?"

"Figuratively, Richard."

All that afternoon I looked for the feather to appear, and it didn't. It was evening, dinnertime over a hot turkey sandwich, that I saw it. A picture and small print on the carton of milk. Packaged for Scott Dairies by Blue Feather Farms, Bryan, Ohio. "Don! My feather!"

He looked, and shrugged his shoulders. "I thought you wanted the actual feather."

"Well, any feather for openers, don't you think?"

"Did you see just the feather all alone, or were you holding the feather in your hand?"

"All alone."

"That explains it. If you want to be with what you're magnetizing, you have to put yourself in the picture, too. Sorry I didn't say that."

I think the technique, as outlined in the book, is a pretty good one. Certainly, I think it is helpful if you imagine yourself actually being with what you want to manifest. Also, as most people associate golden light with good things, that can't hurt either.

Vesuvius, you are wonderfully all-round!!! Thanks for this too.

In fact, that's one of my favorite books .... but the allegory of the golden light I have read many times ...it is from different books and sources. Hence the question. Thanks

I think whichever feels best between the two will help speed up the process - whichever image you can give the most clarity to. If you can visualize both clearly, then I don't see an advantage in using one over the other.Anything you can do to feel good about the desire, will help speed up the physical manifestation.
