You may have heard of creative visualization from interviews with athletes who have used this powerful technique to win more gold medals and titles than perhaps any other single training method. By actually sensing, feeling and being in a perfect race or competition within their own heads, professional and amateur athletes are able to use these mental images to help them prepare for the actual race. What you may not realize is that the technique is essentially the very same as the Law of Attraction as popularised in the film and book, The Secret.
In 1984, Dr. Denis Waitley began using his idea for visualization with Olympic athletes. In his very popular 1986 book, The Psychology of Winning, Waitley outlined how to form and really use visualization as a tool for success. The athletes he coached were so effective in Olympic competition; his books became a de facto standard that even high school athletes have since tried his method.
Of course, really feeling and being in your chosen future demands you spend some time and make an effort to help get the picture solid in your mind, no matter what your goal is. This means not only knowing what you want, but also giving some thought as to how your best future will come about. That doesn’t mean you’ll know how it will happen, but even just actively imagining yourself achieving your success will help make it happen.
Because it’s often easier to envision objects, asking for physical manifestations of your intentions is often a good place to start. The Law of Attraction doesn’t differentiate between large and small requests, but human minds do. You’ll feel far more convinced of your own abilities to encourage good fortune to come your way when you start small.
What makes visualization actually useful are the little details. One needs to actually see and feel and essentially “be” in your own future. The more detailed your image of the future you desire is; the more likely you are to make it come true. This may involve visiting the objects you desire, or even cutting a picture of what you want out of a catalogue.
For instance, if you want a car, decide what car that is, right down to every detail. Then go test drive one. If you have no idea how you’ll be able to afford it, don’t think about it – you don’t want to re-enforce any negative messages. Drive that car around, then go home, and clearly remember every little aspect of that test drive. Imagine yourself behind the wheel and how good it did and will feel. The more convincing the image, the more powerful it is.
Creative visualization is the use of ones imagination to create a mental picture of what it is you wish to manifest, thus influencing reality. Creating an idea or mental picture in your brain of exactly what it is you really want is to define the ability to imagine.
Repetition on a regular basis with strong emotions and intent gives the idea or mental picture you are trying to create positive energy until it becomes real.
Science is starting to reflect the ideas of metaphysical and spiritual leaders that our physical world constitutes energy and not matter something that has been known to such enlightened folks for centuries. The most basic ingredient of this energy is a force which is called prana.
Thus visualizing prana energy entering through your nose and circulating throughout your body will have a tremendous revitalizing effect on your whole body & general outlook on life. Visualization is not a new, strange or unusual concept for you are visualizing something practically every minute of the day.
The idea is to dwell on those thoughts you would like to become reality not as some future fantasy but as if they are real today and are part of your everyday life here and now.
Program your brain and re-wire it as if what you desire is real and already taking place. As if you are watching your own self made video, play the role as a real life actor would with all the emotions and movements making it as real as you possibly can. The mental picture needs to be as clear and vivid as you can possibly make it.
Through repetition you will learn and perfect the skill of creating the desired mental image and feel the experience as if it is already real and happening.
Visualization is pure magic of the highest order. It involves understanding and balancing oneself with the natural law that governs the inner most workings of the universe we are part of and learning to use such laws and principles in the most conscious and creative ways.
The message is to imprint the thought and image well into your brain and feed it continually on a regular basis ensuring your desired outcome becomes your reality.
The visualization technique is not to be used to control others or to press upon your will against theirs. As what goes round will certainly come round …
The purpose of the visualization process is to break and flush the inner obstacles to allow more natural flow and increase self realization to increase ones ability to manifest with positive energy.
