“We all possess more power and greater possibilities than we realize, and visualizing is one of the greatest of these powers.” – Genevieve Berhrend
Stop thinking for a second.
Forget about that background chatter that’s always listing off chores to complete or possibilities to be worried about and, instead, just take in the world.
Feel the chair you’re sitting in, smell the air of your home or office, taste the lingering coffee in your mouth. And see, fully see, the room around you: the rays of light coming into the window, the green of your plants on the mantle, the deep red of your curtains. Take it all in.
And now close your eyes and reproduce those sensations. Imagine the colors of the room, the tastes and smells, the feelings, and really focus on them. Recreate the scene as fully as you can inside your mind.
Congratulations! You have just engaged in visualization!
While you may have heard about the life changing effects of proper visualization and thought to yourself “that sounds too difficult for me”, the truth is it’s as easy as imagining the room around you. And that wasn’t too hard, was it?
It’s when you take this simple technique and apply it to your goals, your hopes, and your dreams, you begin to tap into the universal Law of Attraction and start to see the true magic of visualization.
It’s one of the most important skills in harnessing the power of the universe to fulfill your every desire in life and open the door to a heightened state of awareness.
What is Visualization?
Visualization is the practice of creating a specific situation inside the mind alone.
And while you may think, “that just sounds like daydreaming,” the key difference is in the intention behind the act and the level of detail.
Instead of letting your mind wander, free to add details whenever and wherever it chooses like with daydreaming, visualization requires active concentration on the specifics. YOU create the scenario, the minutiae, and the feelings that result, not your idle brain.
But how does it work?
When applied to your goals and your dreams, visualization serves as a way to put the energy of that specific situation out into the universe. That’s where the Law of Attraction comes in.
As you may know, the Law of Attraction depends on just how much energy is directed at a scenario; the more you dwell on the negativity of your life, the more negativity results. Same goes for positivity.
And when you combine detail-rich visualizations performed on a regular basis, the Law of Attraction makes those visualizations all the more likely to occur in reality.
You can see, then, how this powerful technique can be used to shape your life however you choose, whether it be financially, emotionally, socially, or by letting you simply be happy.
But, as Stephen King once said, “the truth is in the details.” The more fully you imagine a situation, the more energy it receives and, as such, the more likely it is to occur.
That means the more complete the picture in your mind is, including sensations like touch, smell, taste, hear, see and feel, the more powerful that goal becomes.
And this isn’t just a new age practice either; in fact, it’s been documented for thousands of years. The prophet Ezekiel was said to communicate with God through an inward journey alone, much like Buddha did around the same time.
Several well-known Catholic saints were also said to use the technique as well, including Ignatius of Loyola, Teresa of Avila, and Hildegarde of Bingen.
The Science Behind Visualization
While the idea of simply imagining the life we want and it being delivered to our feet may sound far too simple, the truth is visualization has a wealth of scientific evidence behind it.
For example, one study
involved comparing muscle mass between participants that actively went to the gym and those who simply IMAGINED
going to the gym in great detail.
The conductors of the experiment documented a 30% muscle increase in the gym goers and, to the surprise of everyone involved, measured almost half as much muscle growth by those who had simply imagined the experience!
Through simple visualization alone, these participants were able to physically alter their body!
And while the results may be astounding to you, professional athletes
have known about the power behind this technique for years.
One Russian study
found that in an experiment involving athletes with varying percentages of physical and mental training, the group that had 75% mental training and only 25% physical training outperformed every other test subject, even those that used 100% physical training!
How to Use Visualization
It’s obvious that there is an enormous power in our minds and visualization is one of the key techniques to access such power. By harnessing the power of the Law of Attraction, visualization can help you start living the life you deserve, today.
But in order to truly reap the benefits of this amazing ability, you need to make sure you are visualizing correctly.
After all, anything worth doing is worth doing right.
As such, here are a few tips to get you started:
- Find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed before you begin
- Focus on the details (most important!)
- Don’t worry if you get distracted, your skills will improve with time
- Leave no sense out. Include taste, smell, sight, hearing, and feeling
- Concentrate on what your life will be like having fulfilled your dreams
