What Is Visualization?
Visualization or mental imagery is intrinsically linked to the Law of attraction.
In your brain, you generate visual pictures of things you want or don’t want.
It helps the unconscious mind to understand the direction you want to take.
However, if random thoughts were all it took to manifest our wants, we would have continuous deliveries of things coming to our homes.
An essential factor to consider is that our thinking is based upon negative and positive images in our minds.
If manifesting whatever you want was simply based upon your thoughts, you’d receive a lot of good as well as bad stuff.
Although people who focus more on the negative seem to manifest more negative things in their lives.
The conclusion is it requires more than mere thinking to make it happen.
Through visualization, you are helping your mind create clear and resourceful images of what you want to achieve.
Continually creating those images in your brain makes it easier for the world around you to pick up on what you want.
Strange as this concept may sound, it’s nothing new.
It’s been around for hundreds of years.
Visualization is not a magic trick to create and attract desired objects, actions, or circumstances.
Visualization is a tool that keeps us focused and motivated to take action.
The result of this creative process happens when our thoughts are focused and combined with strong emotions, belief, and action.
“Visualization – viewing the forthcoming attractions of your life.” – Mark Csabai
Future orientated thinking
Many successful people have used visualization as part of their success.
Many pro athletes use guided imagery to practice the event in their minds.
This helps them overcome fear and increase confidence in their abilities to achieve their goals.
Useful visualizations are rooted in reality and are future-orientated; they are not fantasies.
You may see visualization as a precursor to a forthcoming event in your life.
This powerful technique is based upon the fact that your mind cannot distinguish between what’s real and what’s fantasy.
When you imagine yourself closing a significant deal, or presenting a flawless presentation to your colleagues, your brain and body perceive it as being real.
Visualization is even recommended by professionals as a powerful technique for:
- Mastering a new skill
- Accomplishing difficult tasks
- Achieving goals big or small
- Relieving anxiety and stress
- Increasing self-worth and confidence
- Increasing optimism
- Improve overall health
Creative visualization itself doesn’t attract anything into our lives; it’s a fantastic tool that makes manifesting reality possible.
Having an image in your mind of how you would like to be or what you would like to achieve, will keep you motivated.
The continual focus on these images will enable your unconscious mind to do what it does best, and that is to guide you to your goal.
