Forex Psychology with Saira Khalid
Use Imagination to create your desired result in your trading accounts!
In this month’s article I want to cover something I have been reading recently so much about and this particular book I have visited again and again in my life since 2001. I just happened to read it again and I would love all the traders to perhaps check it out if it appeals to you too otherwise keep an eye out for my articles and I will be writing a series based on this book.
The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity by Catherine Ponder.
There are so many laws discussed in this book and today I will cover 1 for you. “The Creative Law of Prosperity”. According to Ponder this law consists of 3 steps as below
- Have a plan – write out your desires concerning the plan and review
- Mental imagery needs to see that plan as fulfilled
- Constantly affirm its perfect fulfilment
First step is obviously most important because without it you cannot access the other 2 steps.
In your plan you need to state a strong desire and ensure yourself that you have the ability to fulfil that desire because the universe completely wants you to have what you want as long as you give a clear message. True desire carry in itself completion when fuelled by intensity and power.
Ponder has used a series of affirmations to help people achieve the desired results. The affirmations carry within themselves the magnetic power of creation and bringing the good you want directly to you effortlessly.
Affirmation 1: I desire the highest and the best in life, and I now draw the highest and the best to me.”
Affirmation 2: Everything and Everyone prospers me now.
Please take a moment to write down your desires. For example 5% increase in my Prop account for the month of March 2015 and I will bill K2a for the 60% of the profit. I will gift myself or treat my loved one with ——-.
This is how you have set a positive intention to bring about your desire to reality.
Another great idea presented by Ponder is to carry a little diary with you and write out the completion of an event in the exact manner you want it to happen and carry that with you so when you get a moment (in the train, between lunch break etc) just read through it, you don’t even have to say it out loud, simply read it through, take a moment, close your eyes and imagine. It is easier to imagine the same thing again and again if you have written it out. You must have all heard the phrase “Nothing succeeds like success” and the above technique will help you manifest.
Another suggestion that I have already tried out and tested is how much money you want to make for 1 hour of work. So it is important that you specify daily result and how many hours it took to produce that result then divide the amount gained by the hours, right? Now right this result in your little black book J and multiply it by 10. In the next step write out exactly how it is turning out to be in your favour and how you are enjoying the result for your benefit and others. One of the most important criterion is that the result needs to be ecological what it means is that it is good for you, it is good for others, it is good for the environment.
Sooner or later we end up realising that if it is not good for others than it is not good for us as at the core level we are all connected to everything. So you’d ask ‘this doesn’t make sense in trading because for me to win someone has to lose so how is it good for me and good for others simultaneously?” Well if you thought that then an awesome question because in your question is the answer. Here is how
- Market is a living breathing organism
- For the market to function it needs both buyers and sellers
- No one can sell if they are no buyers
- Think of market as an exchange when you buy you give someone the opportunity to sell at a set price to you which keeps the flow of nature moving along. So when you sell someone is always there to buy.
- There is no loss or gain there is only a ‘necessary’ transaction
- By you participating in the markets you have added value regardless of whether you were a buyer or seller or achieved positive or negative result
Goethe promised “What you can do or dream you can, begin it; boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”
So let us begin March with a diary that you carry with you (exactly typing it in your pc or ipad doesn’t work the same!!!) because when you handwrite your dreams your Kinaesthetic through your fingers send a signal to your heart and brain to activate the imagination that is required to bring about what you have written.

M for March, M for Money…
