Creative visualization is a mental technique that uses the imagination to make dreams come true, which in turn reduces or eliminates stress around the “not having”. Creative visualization can improve our life and attract success and prosperity. It is a power that can alter our environment and circumstances, cause events to happen, and attract money, possessions, work, people and love into our life.
The subconscious is incredibly powerful, representing five-sixths of our brain’s thinking and power. To achieve success consistently and effortlessly, you must align your subconscious mind with what you want to create in your life and let go of past programming. If your subconscious beliefs conflict with the outcomes you’re consciously affirming, you’re guaranteed to fail. The subconscious wins … every time. An ideal time to visualize is in the morning and before sleep, perhaps after meditating.
Visualize what you want. Your subconscious can’t tell the difference between a real and imagined event. When it “sees” what you want to achieve, it will find ways to make your dreams come true. The same works regarding stress. “Act as if” and visualizing “it” daily works wonders. For instance, if you are stressed that you are overweight and a goal is to lose 10 pounds, visualize your self at that weight- in those clothes. Act as if you are already losing the weight and do not go on the scale. Simply smile, exercise and eat well to “maintain” your lost weight.
Here’s another example: You know you need a vacation and can’t imagine taking the time off. Well, do exactly that in your mind, and in real time act as if you are going- soon! Perhaps you want to “mind map” the visualization and look at it throughout the day: Write the word vacation in a circle on a paper and draw lines of branches and paths that are the details of the vacation connecting to the circle. You may use colored pencils and markers- make it a fun activity. Mind mapping is a great tool to fast forward any visualization into reality.
