There are many tools available that help you live the life you aspire to. Yesterday we talked about affirmations. Opening your mind up to different techniques can help you make big shifts in how you approach your future and attain your goals. Many people use visualization to inspire and motivate themselves. More than just thinking about what you want, visualization is an effective tool that helps harnesses the power of your subconscious mind to help you achieve your dreams.
Your mind has an amazing ability to create your reality, and visualization is a way of creating the reality you desire. Your thoughts, like everything, are made up of energy, and that energy sends a certain vibration into the universe. Just like your mood or aura, what you send out, is likely what you will get back. As vibrations are sent out, they attract similar energetic vibrations and draw them to you. The more positive energy you put out, the more positive energy you will receive in turn.
How Do I Do Visualization?
1. Eliminate distractions. Make sure that you are in a quiet environment without distractions.
2. Close your eyes and breathe deeply. Breathe in slowly through your nose to a count of five, then exhale through your mouth to a count of five or more. As you breathe in, make sure that you are expanding your diaphragm, and as you exhale, you should be flattening. Take at least three to five breaths like this as it will slow your heart rate and calm your mind.
3. Picture a clear mental image of what it is you desire. Focus on the details. Notice the colors, textures, sounds and smells within your vision. See yourself touching the things in your vision and tasting the air. Let yourself feel the emotions connected to achieving your goal. Avoid any feelings of doubt or questioning. Visualize the outcome as though it has already happened. Do not rush through your visualization exercise. Allow yourself enough time to experience the vision fully. About ten minutes or so is usually sufficient.
- Let it play like a movie in your mind, with you as the director and, of course, the leading star.
- Picture yourself already doing or having the things you want to manifest.
- See yourself accomplishing your goals with ease.
4. Practice visualizing the thing at least twice a day. In order for visualization to work to its highest potential, you must be consistent with your new habit and use the practice every day. If you start to experience negative thoughts during your day, stop them in their tracks and replace them with your vision and the positive thoughts connected to it.
Visualization can be a very tool powerful in helping you clarify your desires. But it is important to remember that you may not always receive the answers you are in the way in which you expect. Remain open minded to different forms and manifestations of your desires. If you desire money, for example, you should not expect to win the lottery, especially if you are not buying any tickets, or to receive a huge check in the mail. Instead, you may be offered a different job, a promotion, or some other opportunity to earn some extra money.
You may find your desires answered immediately or they may unfold gradually. By keeping an open mind, you are much more likely to see opportunities in various forms that can bring your visualizations to fruition.
Visualization can lead you to greater peace of mind, serenity and contentment. Try using visualization techniques today to help you achieve your goals and desires, and reap the rewards!
I have long-used visualization to help guide my goals, dreams, and plans clearly in my mind. My first use was for high school graduation and an elementary school student. I have very few relatives who made it tho hight school, and never had the opportunity to graduate.
I use visualization to make my future plans perfect and complete. IT helps me figure out the next steps I need to take. to end up where I wish. By using visualization, I can see how I can achieve the goals I set for myself and the dreams that are in my heart.
