Leveraging Positive Visualisation

Creative visualisation is instrumental in achieving your goals and accomplishing your tasks. When it comes to our internal mental creation, our brains aren’t capable of differentiating between the real and the imagined. The imagery that you create in your mind has a real and tangible effect on your body. When you place your personal belief in the process of imagination, you can attain your goals and live a purposeful life.

Building a Foundation

Just like any physical or mental process, visualisation requires a foundation upon which to rest. It is important that you understand the strongest sensory qualities that your mind perceives, whether visual or auditory.

If you bring to your memory, the thoughts that occupied your mind before past failed or successful events, you will discover that your thought pattern led you to act in a certain manner which attracted the corresponding events and circumstances. This proves that your thoughts can create great changes with the help of visualisation and imagery.

Creative Visualisation

Creative visualisation is a mental technique that uses the power of imagination and the mind to make changes in your life and drive you toward your purpose. With creative visualisation, you can shape your character, circumstances, and habits, as well as attracting the opportunities and the things that you most desire in your life.

The thoughts that are repeated most will affect your subconscious mind and make things happen. The subconscious controls your desires, habits, reactions, and actions. They also attract similar circumstances. Your imagination will create mental scenarios of certain events and incidences in your life through creative visualisation.

The more you feed your thoughts, the stronger they get. Your imagination is your most important and powerful tool of creative visualisation. Through the imagination, we develop the cars, computers, and building that you see today.

Integrating Creative Visualisation into Your Life

To live a purposeful, driven life, you need to bring in visualisation. Just like learning how to drive a car or play a musical instrument, visualisation will require patience and persistence. If you want to experience the full benefits of visualisation, you need to put in the discipline as well as the time and practice until you perfect the process.

The length of time that it will take for you to start seeing results will fully depend on the vividness of your imagination, as well as your own level of determination. Experts suggest that you practice for 15 to 20 minutes every day. As you start to master the skill and become more comfortable with the technique, you can reduce the time to just a few minutes a day.

Research indicates that for your visualisation to work, it is best done in conjunction with a relaxation technique. The studies showed that when your body is relaxed, your mind is also comfortable and not so much under conscious control, giving it the freedom to daydream.

There are many techniques that can be used in visualisation and imagery to call the desired feeling and provide you with a direction of purpose. One of the most common methods is known as guided visualisation, and it involves visualising a goal you want to achieve and then imagining yourself going through the process of achieving that goal.

Since thoughts, when combined with mental images and emotions, will lead to actions and results, creative visualisation can overcome the practical barriers to the attainment of your purpose. By repeating the same thoughts, every day, you will program your subconscious mind to bring the visualisation into reality.
