The Invisible Counselors Visualization Exercise


Recommended Posts


in the book Hill claimed this was his ultimate technique for sourcing skills, ideas and inspiration.


This is how you do it…


Step 1:


Just before going to sleep at night, close your eyes, and see, in your imagination, a group of people seated with you around a Council Table. Remember, you can invite anyone you like to sit at the Council Table.


And when I say anyone, I mean anyone. They could be in another part of the world. They could be celebrities or famous politicians. They could even be alive or dead. Now, not only do you have the opportunity to sit among those you consider to be great, but you can actually dominate the group, by serving as the Chairman. This is what Hill did.


Step 2:


Have a DEFINITIVE PURPOSE for holding these nightly Council Meetings.


Hill explains his definitive purpose was “to rebuild my own character so it would represent a composite of the characters of my imaginary counselors.” Your Definitive Purpose can be ANYTHING you want to change about yourself or your life. Since all this is going on in your mind, your imagination is the only limit!


Step 3:


Call on the Council Members for the knowledge you wish each to contribute.


The idea here is to start a discussion with these people on any topic of your choice. So if you want to discuss leadership, you could invite

Abraham Lincoln…

If you want to discuss financial success, you could bring in Warren Buffet…

If you’re looking for enlightenment, you could always invite Gandhi…

If you’re looking for ideas to grow your business and make your mark on the world, go ahead and call on Richard Branson.

And if you need some advice on how to improve your life and relationships… maybe ask Oprah a thing or two.

Hill had originally meant for the Invisible Counselors to be an imaginary exercise. You imagine you’re talking to successful people, and you imagine them giving you advice. Nothing much to it right?


But here’s where it gets really interesting. After a few times of trying out the Imaginary Counselors exercise, Hill found it to be more profound, more REAL than he ever thought possible.


He reported that after a while, each of the characters he imagined actually took on a life of their own. For example, he mentions that Abraham Lincoln was always late and never smiled. Hill even recalled an occasion where two counselors in the boardroom actually got into an argument over a topic that left Hill mystified…


And on numerous occasions, the people he had invited would often give him advice and information that he could never have known by himself.

Haha, this is great. for those that watch Game of Thrones, I like to call this my "Small Council" for daily matters. Finances, Relationships, Health, Sports, Businesses, etc. whatever comes to your mind, put em forth, and let everyone have turns speaking. Eventually there will eb a solution that just feels right, and go with it.


ANd yes, over time, these personalities do get very real (schitzophrenia?). I don't know. It seems that your imagination is far far more important than the actual reality this world wants you to live in/presents you with. ANything you can imagine and visualize over time BECOMES. REAL. 


The way I look at it from a Spiritual perspective is the Astral Realms. All these entities do actually exist there, and we draw directly from their intelligences. At present my Small Council consists entirely of Dieties, Planetary Intelligences, and Elemental Spirits. I am curious to see what happens. 


Also, have a harmony and balance of the masculine and feminine. You need all perspectives and all sides of the issue. There will be dieties, entities, spirits, planets, mythical figures, etc. that you connect naturally with. Meditate upon it quickly and/or if your intuition is strong, decide on yourself, and it will guide you the right way.
