Why visualizations are so powerful
Seeing the goal as already complete in your mind’s eye is a core technique used by the world’s most successful people. Visualization is effective because it harnesses the power of our subconscious mind. The human brain is the most powerful tool you can possibly possess. It is faster and more powerful than any supercomputer. Your mind is so filled with endless possibilities and you are just in the beginning of learning how to access your power to create. By using your imagination you can create the things you desire and wish for. No matter what it is you want….money, perfect health, a car, a new job, love….anything you want is possible to have as long as you learn how to use your mind to shift focus from lack and negative beliefs to “abundance”.
The basic idea behind visualization is that in order to get what you want in life, you have to be able to picture that thing clearly and in as much detail as possible. Visualization techniques have been used by successful people to visualize their desired outcomes for ages. Elite athletes use it. The super rich use it. And peak performers in all fields now use it. You too have this awesome power, but most of us have never been taught to use it effectively.
Visualization is really quite simple.
Sit down in a comfortable position, close your eyes and make a mental picture of what it is you wish to have. See it before your eyes and imagine that you already are in position of whatever it is you want. When you’re thinking that it’s in your reality now you will attract it to you, but if you think of it as something that will come to you later it will never come. “Later” doesn’t exist. Only now exists and it is important that your visualizations are always in the present tense.
You can look at the image from the outside as if you were looking at a movie screen or as if you are actually in the movie. It doesn’t matter how you see yourself as long as you can feel the emotions of having whatever it is you want. The feelings are the most important part of visualizing and if you find it difficult to see an image it’s ok. Some people can’t see images, but they can imagine and feel the feelings anyway. Do it the way that feels best for you and as long as you can imagine yourself being in the situation you want to be in it’s working. Your feelings are what sends out the energy/the signal that will attract to you what you are focusing on. Research has revealed that images or scenes that are accompanied by intense emotion will stay locked in our memory forever. The more passion, excitement and energy we muster during visualization, the more powerful the results will be.
Make the image in your head as vivid as possible. Try to see the image in bright colors. See details and feel how good it feels to have what you are wishing for. Feel how happy you are and smile. Smiling gives you an even stronger feeling of happiness and your energy is elevated and you will be a super strong magnet to what you are focusing on. If you don’t feel positive feelings…don’t worry. It will come. Give it time. Just like any other skill, visualizing takes some practice. Just keep doing it and don’t get frustrated. You will get a hang of it soon and then you’ll love it.
Keep the image in your mind for as long as you like. I recommend about fifteen minutes a day. Preferably in the morning when you haven’t had the time to get up and think any negative thoughts yet. Do it as soon as you get up and let this be the perfect start to your day. You will feel more positive and you will raise your vibration to a level that will keep your thoughts and feelings elevated for a long time. With practice this exercise will keep your energy in a high frequency for longer and longer periods of time.
Use affirmations to support your visualization
Positive affirmations are powerful means of getting what you want by repeating a sentence over and over again until it creates a new thought in your subconscious. A thought that will deliver to you that which you desire. It helps to replace your “I cant’s” with “I cans,” and they can also create higher vibrations of happiness, joy, appreciation, and gratitude. Then, through the law of attraction, magnetize people, resources, and opportunities to come to you to help you achieve your goals.
How to create a positive affirmation:
- Start your affirmation by entering the present tense
Take the condition you desire and declare it to be already true.
- Create positive, self-empowering statements that uplift and inspire you
Create sentences that are positive and makes you feel happy. Let the sentence be the short version of what you really desire, not what you don’t desire. For instance…if your wish is to be happier you can say ” I am so happy and fulfilled now that I am…” instead of a sentence like this “I am not sad anymore. I am happy”. Our subconscious mind skips the word not. So, delete this word from your affirmations.
- Keep it short
Affirmations should be easy to memorize so keep it short.
- Include action
When you include an action word it will give your affirmation more power and the results will come faster.
- Powerful words with feeling
To include words that describes how you will feel once you reach your goal is a great way to give your affirmation more power. The more feelings you have when you say your affirmation out loud or silently in your head, the more you will attract to you the things you desire. Down below I have made a list of powerful, positive words that you can use when you are creating your daily affirmations.
Here’s a few examples of positive affirmations:
- I am so happy and grateful that I am now celebrating having achieved…
- I am enjoying my healthy, beautiful body
- I am so happy and grateful that my business is thriving
- I am thrilled to know that I am now my perfect body weight
- I am attracting all the money I will ever need and I feel so blessed
- I am blessed with an incredible family and wonderful friends.
- I am so happy and grateful that I am now earning $xxxxxxx a year
