Visualization is a manifestation tool that has been in use for centuries. Successful people use visualization techniques even today to achieve their goals. It’s not uncommon to hear athletes, actors, businessmen, and other uber-successful people credit visualization as a part of their journey to success. You too can use visualization to attract success into your life. You hold power in your hands, but the majority have no idea how to harness it. This is a practice that you should carry out daily and if you do so, you can speed up the likelihood that you will achieve your goals, dreams, and ambitions.
You won’t be spending your entire day thinking about your dreams and desires. If you allow yourself to become too caught up in your visualization, it will rob you of living in the present. The meditative visualization process takes less than ten minutes out of your day.
4 Benefits of Visualization
Before you learn how to complete this process, here are 4 reasons why you would want to incorporate visualization into your everyday self-care routine.
- Visualization activates the mind’s creative subconscious. This starts the process of generating creative ideas that will help you achieve your dreams and desires.
- Visualization programs your brain to subconsciously recognize and perceive opportunities and resources that will help you achieve your dreams and desires.
- Visualization activates the power of manifestation. The law of attraction draws positivity, opportunities, resources, and people you need to achieve your dreams and desires.
- Visualization helps you build the internal motivation that you need to take the action required to achieve your dreams and desires.
How to Use Visualization to Create an Amazing Life
Visualization is a fairly simple idea. The first thing you need to do is find a quiet place to practice the technique. You want to be as comfortable as possible so choose a position that makes you feel relaxed.
Once comfortable, close your eyes and imagine your life dreams and desires in vivid detail. Effectively, you’re going to visualize your year as though it has already happened. You’re going to imagine what your successes feel like and what they look like.
Create a detailed picture, of you at the end of the year, in your mind and connect to it emotionally. Start to imagine everything that happened in your year and all the joy that it brought.
It’s important that you feel the emotions and deeply connect to them. Cry tears of joy, laugh, feel deep gratitude, see yourself dancing excitedly at the good news, get as connected as you can.
Every goal that you possess should have a movie or picture in your head that it correlates to. This is a picture that you should be able to step into and fully interact with it in your mind.
Allow your senses to immerse you in this image. What’s going on around you? Who is with you, where are you, and what’s happening?
When you feel complete and at one with your visualization, you can bring yourself back to the present. Keep your eyes closed while you focus on the action steps required to move you toward your goals. Before you open your eyes, finish by taking a few deep breaths.
After you visualize your goals, you can revisit them for motivational purposes. However, it’s important that you let them go and focus on the present. Your actions and decisions in the present will make your visualization a reality.
Visualization techniques can help you achieve your dreams and desires, but it’s just as important that you invest your time and energy in the present to enjoy today.
If being present is something that you struggle with, here’s an easy way to do it. Find something in your current environment to focus on. Or you can focus on the sensations in your body. It’s difficult to be focused on an object or your body and be lost in the future or the past at the same moment.
Add further power to your visualization by using positive affirmations that support your desires, dreams, and goals. When you feel the need to boost your visualizations or connect to them on a deeper emotional level, repeat an affirmation that will support your visualization and help you manifest your dreams and desires.
