Creative Visualization

A simple and excellent technique to help you create your reality is creative visualization. With it, you make a conscious decision with a solid intent to manifest the deliberately created images in your mind.

This powerful technique has been used by top performers and athletes successfully worldwide. Sales people are trained to visualize themselves closing the sale, and marathon runners endure mental training in which they are taught to use imagery to see themselves crossing the finish line.

There is no reason why creative visualization wouldn’t work for you. The only thing you need is faith in your powerful mind and in what it can create, plus a bit of determination and patience. So get excited and let’s learn how to use this technique effectively.

“Whatever the Mind Can Conceive and Believe, It Can Achieve” 

~ Napoleon Hill,  Think and Grow Rich

Start by elaborating on one goal. It works better if you concentrate in achieving one goal at a time. Start by writing down a few specifics of the goal you want to achieve. Take the time to modify it and re-write it until it resonates with exactly what you want to see happen, details and all. Then, read it aloud every morning as you wake up and every night right before you retire. Do this for at least three days before you start visualizing. Make sure you are saying it with unwavering conviction and have faith that you will see it manifest.

On day four, prepare for your creative visualization. Set aside some time and plan to dedicate some time to your practice. Choose a quiet place and prepare to relax by sitting in a comfortable position and placing your hands facing up on your lap.

Take a few deep breaths by slowly breathing in through your nose, and slowly breathing out through your mouth, until you feel a slight tingling in your muscles which means you are relaxed.

Now focus on your goal and draw a detailed picture of it in your mind, just as you have written it and repeated it. Let’s say you want to experience swimming with dolphins.

Imagine this exact picture in your mind as vividly as possible: Visualize the dolphins and the blue ocean, hear their squeaks and whistles, smell the salty ocean, touch their soft, slippery skin when you rub their bellies, feel the cold water on your skin and look at the dolphins eyes to feel connected to them and the experience. Now, notice the happiness this experience is bringing to your senses.

Take the time to love every aspect of your experience as you imagine it. Bring it to life by FEELING every aspect of it and use as many of your senses as possible. Picture it exactly as if you were there!

One amazing added advantage about creative visualization is that you can feel and obtain the same benefits of the actual experience by just living it in your mind

Our subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between real or make-believe, so when you engage all of your senses in the “imaginary” experience, you’re actually making your mind “believe” it is happening right then and there. This practice will release the energy which will move the right elements to bring what you want into the physical plane.

Be patient and persistent. For some of us it may take longer to see results, but if you have faith and know in your heart it will happen, it just will.

You can apply the creative visualization technique to almost every aspect of life, from goal setting to memory improvement, from sports performance to weight loss, from self-healing to enhancing mood, from problem-solving to decision-making, and everything in between.

You can even use creative visualization to create abundance and prosperity!

Once you get a hold of it, you can visualize virtually anywhere and anytime. Just find a quiet place where you can be by yourself and not be disturbed for a few moments. I’ve heard some people get so good at it, they can do it while riding the train or sitting at the beach on a busy Sunday morning!

Remember… just relax and keep the focus on what you want to do, achieve or acquire. Add as many details as you can and engage your emotions. Simply keep replaying this inner film in your mind as if you were actually participating in it. And if you want to make your visualization more vivid and effective, you can create a vision board and/or state affirmations. These techniques will give life to your imagery.

Before you know it, you’ll be living it!
