Creative visualization is a valuable tool to create change in our lives… solve problems… and attract whatever we can imagine. Everything begins as a thought. Visualization adds energy and power to those thoughts, creating a mental mold of the results we wish to experience in our reality.
Are you curious about it? Read on. Enlisted below are several creative visualization techniques that you can follow and make that dream come true, as well! When thinking of something you want to have, be sure that it is a reachable goal. You will never reach it if it involves something really impossible, right? Impossible can mean things that do not really happen in real life, like being an individual with the superhuman strength of X-Men and aliens. Make specific goals that you know you can have in time.
But in order to get there, you have to willingly suspend all other thoughts and concerns. Nothing else exists during your visualization but you and the voice on the visualization CD. Establish the vision. To get what you want, you need to know what it is. Start by writing down all the things you think you want. Don’t edit yourself; just get it all down on paper. Keep writing. After a few minutes, you will have a complete list. Now choose one item from that list that’s more important right now. You can go for the others later.
Enter the theatre of your mind and look upon the stage of your imagination. Begin to see yourself living the desired result and then step into your vision as if you are literally there. Engage as many of the senses as possible. If it’s a new car you want imagine how you would look in it. How does the new leather smell? Feel the notches on the steering wheel. Do this for a few minutes, especially before you go to sleep at night. Once you get in the routine of doing this consistently you will begin to ACT in alignment with your vision and the manifestation will happen.
Rewrite and refine. Once you’ve got it down, it’s time to shape your description into something closer to exactly what it is you want. This creative visualization technique is like taking a rough idea of what you want to say in a letter-to-the-editor and then converting it into a polished piece that’s ready to mail. Refine your goal into a powerful paragraph that describes exactly what it is you want.
Let’s endeavor to answer all of these – albeit in a brief article! I’ll leave the issue of doing creative visualization “well” until the end because, of course, that’s a subjective judgment. The more important issue at this stage is whether you can do it at all. I’ve heard so many people say that they cannot visualise. I’m always struck by the slight irony of this, because in order to make such a statement the person has to imagine, (that is picture themselves), not visualizing! However, that is not to make light of the complaint because anyone saying such a thing genuinely feels that to be their truth.
The problem, I believe, is that there is a tendency to feel that there is a “proper” way to do creative visualization -as if there was some test to pass, or that it’s a kind of secret known only to a cult type brotherhood. Nothing, I’m delighted to tell you, could be further from the truth!
You couldn’t even make a cup of coffee without imagining the steps involved in heating the water, adding the coffee grounds to the cup and so on. Not only that, but you wouldn’t want the coffee in the first place unless you could imagine the taste and the feeling that seems, in that very moment, would be satisfied only by a cup of coffee! If thirst was the only problem, a glass of water would do much better!
