The Art Of Visualization
Visualization is the art of using your imagination to create a life situation you truly desire, by conjuring a clear image and focusing on it till it manifests.
Elite athletes use visualization in their training to boost performance. Russian scientists conducted a study comparing four groups of Olympic athletes. Group one did 100% physical training. Group two did 75% physical and 25% visualization. Group three was 50-50. Group four was 25% physical and 75% visualization. Who do you think performed the best? Group four!
But it doesn’t stop there! The uses of visualization are virtually limitless! We all use our imagination daily, but unfortunately most people use it their detriment, creating problems by conjuring worst-case scenarios they unknowingly project it into their future.
Fortunately, you can use it deliberately to create what you really want in life, including health, wealth, and love.
Every creation, from a sandwich to a musical masterpiece, begins as thought. An idea creates an image of the form, which draws physical energy to itself, allowing it to manifest into the physical plane.
To use this power to create your ideal life, follow these simple steps:
- Decide what you really want. This visualization is your blueprint, so feel into each aspect to ensure you’re creating what you truly want. Write it down, including lots of rich detail.
- Find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed for 5 – 10 minutes, then imagine your life as you’d like it be. Pretend whatever you want is now yours!
- Focus on your goal, using all of your senses to vividly imagine the situation unfolding just as you want it to – feel the feelings. Live it in the privacy of your mind with as much belief and gratitude as you can muster.
Then watch the magic as you see and hear evidence of these thoughts becoming things over the coming days.
The key to visualizing is to make it as realistic as if you’re living it now. Don’t worry about how it could come about, just focus on what you want as if you’ve already achieved or acquired it.
Thinking thoughts that fill you with passionate, positive emotions while visualizing will draw it quicker. The focused thought will cause the circumstances of your life to rearrange to produce more of that elated emotion in your life.
For best results visualize daily, perhaps closing by saying, “this, or something even better, manifests for my highest good,” leaving the Universe free to provide something even better than what your conscious mind can come up with.
You can amp up your belief factor by taking some actions to make these visions for your future feel real. Visit a show home, test drive that car, or make a vision board of things you’ll enjoy while living your dream life.
Visualize as vividly as you can — see it from the end. Imagine yourself already there and before long, you will be.
