But if you go when your stomach is full you think much more clearly and download only the food you need. Feeling better about yourself If you have feelings of low self-worth or depression, one of the first things you can do to help is remove negative thoughts that may be holding you back.
But by breaking the circle using creative visualization you can interrupt the downward spiral and leave room to start injecting some positivity or at least some constructiveness into your thoughts. Not only is feeling better about life a benefit in itself, it helps improve your interactions with other people and makes your whole outlook seem a lot more positive. You find you smile more and generally feel more sociable and the jobs you do will seem easier and the mundane tasks will even seem less boring.
Chapter 3: Reaping the Benefits of Creative Visualization When you start to feel the gentle wave of optimism — the general feeling of goodwill that runs through you as you visualize positive things — try to bring this feeling into all your visualizations. Eventually, you can consciously draw on this positive energy as you begin each visualization exercise. Even if before you start visualizing you feel too tired or that not enough time is available to become the person you want to be or to attain your ambitions, after you begin your visualization exercises your desire to succeed strengthens, bringing with it the motivation you need.
As you continue to visualize, you start to realise the things that are necessary to attain your goals and so you quite naturally want to do these things more and more. You may find that you start to get a little fidgety if you watch too much television, that you tend not to sleep in at the weekend, or that difficulties with your current projects at work or at home suddenly seem to disappear. This additional motivation is key to helping you achieve your goals, because you need to be proactive and take conscious steps towards achieving them.
In this scenario, when you begin visualizing around your financial goal, ideas start to come to mind about how to contact potential customers.
You may find that the increased confidence you begin to exude makes current customers want to give you more business, or recommend you to colleagues. Perhaps you see new opportunities that require a few extra hours work a week. You discover that you now have the necessary motivation to keep working at getting that extra business.
Introducing Creative Visualization With visualizing, all the things you need to achieve your goal become apparent, as does the drive and motivation to do so. Usually, this energy is sufficient to keep you going to achieve your desire, but often you notice that you also have extra energy to employ in other areas of your life. You may suddenly have the urge to go on walks or start cycling, or visiting a gym regularly.
You may find that listening to other people whom you previously found tedious is now a lot less boring and that the things they say are quite interesting. Much of the time this energy becomes infectious and you see other people picking up on it: When the energy starts to flow, do make sure that you employ it. Use the energy to help achieve your goals, to help other people, and to improve the quality of your life and the lives of your loved ones.
But if you draw on the energy, more comes from within you to replace it. Looking at the Unconscious Benefits When you begin to visualize, many changes take place within you, albeit unconsciously. You may not notice these changes at first, but when you look back at how you were before and compare that situation to how you are now, a great deal of difference becomes apparent.
Three main areas of unconscious benefits are as follows: Reaping the Benefits of Creative Visualization As you visualize more and more you begin to feel more strongly in control of your life and its direction. Things that normally worry or upset you have less of an adverse effect and you find the motivation and energy to deal with them. Reducing stress and anxiety Put simply, stress is unpleasant. Even in very small amounts it can make you psychologically and physically unwell.
Or if you are, you may often mistake it for motivation, which it most definitely is not. In fact, by reducing stress levels you can find that you deal more easily with such problems. Keep reading for some concrete ways to battle stress! The feeling of being out of control is one of the biggest causes of stress. The exercises in this book related to calmness, anxiety, and stress reduction check out Chapters 8 and 11 help you to start taking back control of your life.
Imagine sucking the stress right out of all parts of your body and concentrating it deep in your solar plexus in the centre of your chest, at the lowest part of your rib cage by breathing in deeply — as deep as you can — and breathing along with the visualization. Puff out as you fill the balloon with the air containing all your worries and problems. Soon it disappears over the horizon where both the stress and balloon simply evaporate away into nothing, taking your problems with them.
If you have any more troubles still in you, visualize puffing them into another balloon and let it follow the first one. Do this exercise a few times until you feel better. Creative visualization can be used as an effective method for reducing the symptoms of stress, as well as the causes.
Creative Visualization and Visualizing Creativity
When you know that you can lower your anxiety levels with creative visualization and have successfully done so a few times , you find that over time your body adopts the stress response less often, until eventually you rarely feel stressed out, if at all.
Overcoming stress through creative visualization helps you to maintain a more balanced outlook on life so that niggling little things such as someone taking a parking spot you were waiting for no longer bother you so much. As a result, you feel more at peace with the world. When you have this feeling of peace it frees you from the noise and chatter of your thoughts both good and bad.
Sometimes all we need is a little peace in order to get our thoughts in order. If you wish to attain this state of being or any other more quickly in the future, you may find the technique of anchoring often taught by NeuroLinguistic Programming practitioners and hypnotherapists to be useful.
With anchors you can quickly recall desired memories or change mental states using a variety of methods including physical gestures and verbal phrases.
Saying this phrase again in the future will help you to recall the feeling. Chapter 11 makes use of anchoring to help overcome fears and phobias by helping you to recall relaxed states of mind when approaching something that scares you. This entry serves as a baseline summary of who you are now.
The additional columns can then be used to detail your progress as you bring visualizing more into your way of life. Complete other columns in the chart from time to time at periods at least a week apart and prove to yourself just how well creative visualization is working for you.
The chart contains 12 columns and so you can use it to measure your progress during a week period, or a full year of 12 months. Or simply fill in a column as and when you remember or feel like it. This chart is a visualization reinforcement that as the scores slowly go up serves to increase your belief in how well the system works, and therefore leads to even greater effectiveness. As I describe in Chapter 1, your mind and body are part of an organic whole.
Improvements in your mind also have positive effects in your body, and vice versa. For example, shy people tend to keep their eyes averted and often adopt a slightly stooped posture which is bad for the spine and muscles around it. Your body and mind are closely intertwined with each other.
What you think reflects in what you do. And what you do changes how you feel. In fact this is an exercise that you can never fail to be impressed with. Becoming fitter When you visualize, you tend to become more physically active due to increased motivation, energy, and strength. Make sure that you harness this increased fitness level as positive feedback by enjoying and using it. Getting up and doing something strengthens your visualizations and enhances the mental and emotional changes you desire.
Being inactive physically results in less mental activity due to the mind-body connection, and your creative visualization results will therefore come more slowly than if you keep active Knowing that these physical improvements may occur when you visualize enables you to prepare for them. Once Chapter 3: By holding that feeling in your mind you find it easier to put off snacking until your next meal time. Consult your GP before embarking on any weight-loss programme.
Increasing your stamina Not only can you use visualization to help increase your energy and strength, you can use it to develop greater stamina too. Your body needs to get used to all this new strength and stamina, and so take things easy when you start to become more active. That way you can avoid overexerting yourself too much and too quickly.
Reducing your aches and pains As you become more confident and relaxed through creative visualization, you may become less prone to aches and pains because, due to the mind— body connection, the less stressed and happier you are the higher your pain threshold becomes. Inversely, the more depressed you are, the more you tend to feel minor aches and pains as being greater than they really are.
Other aches can occur as a result of under-using your muscles, so that they become weak.
But as you become more active another benefit of practising creative visualization , the muscles grow and the pains diminish. Introducing Creative Visualization If you suffer from frequent headaches, you may find that they start to occur less often, are less severe, and last a shorter time.
In turn this improvement does wonders for your thinking — which becomes clearer and less distracted by the headaches — and your emotional state, which becomes brighter and more positive. Again the reason for this is down to the mind—body connection. Stressed and depressed people are not only more susceptible to minor aches and pains, they also tend to catch colds more easily and often suffer from more headaches too. By using creative visualization to improve how you feel and become more relaxed, your immune system is boosted by this newfound positivity, your pain threshold rises, and you may suffer less from headaches.
Medical conditions such as migraine headaches which are being treated with medication should continue to be treated this way, but you may find that creative visualization helps reduce their intensity or frequency. You may also notice that if you have a skin condition such as eczema or another condition such as a pollen allergy, it also begins to improve.
I put this down to a generally elevated level of positivity in my outlook. Lowering your blood pressure Stress sometimes causes high blood pressure hypertension and so you may find that this problem begins to improve when you practise creative visualization. If you have a blood pressure monitor, keep a note of the readings in Table to verify any improvement. You can use audio or video sources as inspiration or guidance, and there are ones where a friend leads you through your visualization.
You can employ mental flash cards which are like a quick, five-second visualization you can call on when you need sudden inspiration, or to quickly summon the energy or motivation to do something.
These affirmations can also be written down and read out loud from time to time to increase their results. By understanding the different types of visualization techniques and how and when to use them, you can make more efficient use of your time, and the exercises you practise will achieve better results.
This chapter discusses all these techniques and explains how they work and how to use them. Understanding Unguided Visualization In Chapter 1, I talk about daydreaming as an example of a type of visualization that you probably practise without even realising it.
In fact, much of the visualization you already do is probably unguided: Sometimes you can have flashes of inspiration in which a picture comes suddenly into your mind.
For example, it could be raining and you may be pondering about how to quickly fix a leaky roof when you suddenly remember that you have some garden pond sealant that works under water, and therefore you ought to also be able to apply it to the roof even in the rain to make a quick temporary repair.
You probably carry out some form of unguided visualization every day. No surprise, therefore, that creative visualization works so well: In this section, I describe sleep dreaming and daydreaming and how you can turn both events to your advantage. Defining daydreaming Daydreaming is a partner to sleep dreaming. When you daydream you tend to un-focus your sight and gaze into the distance to remove distractions from your view, which serves a similar purpose to closing your eyes when sleeping.
Like me you probably recall being at school and sometimes staring out of the window, daydreaming instead of working on your maths problems. Chapter 4: This means you focus in more closely on things that have importance to you.
But then your thoughts hop all around those things, often leading off at wild tangents and then back again. The reason for it is to help you cope better with life by constantly analysing it in your daydreaming downtime, as also happens in real dreaming, but on a far deeper and more abstract level. Daydreaming is a natural mechanism that has worked well for human beings for thousands of years, although it can also work against you if you allow negative spirals of thoughts to enter your daydreams, which can potentially bring on depression.
But if you augment your daydreaming with creative visualization, you can avoid or reduce the occurrence of these negative spirals and, more than that, you can create positive feedback to change your emotions and many other aspects of your psyche and physique.
Positive feedback is the opposite of a negative spiral. In the latter, the worse you feel, the more depressed you get. I describe positive feedback in more detail in Chapter 1.
For example, falling dreams may serve to remind you to be careful when in a position in which you may fall physically or metaphorically. These sleep dreams arise due to your fears and help to guide the things you do in the same way that when you first touch something really hot, you very quickly learn not to do so again.
The important use of dreaming is to help make sense of your day and to lay down those memories that are important. I sometimes think people can over-analyse their dreams, although strong Freudians will disagree with me , and that simply experiencing them is all we need to do.
Studies have shown that about three quarters of dream content or emotions are negative, and because of this, dreams other than lucid ones are not a helpful means of creative visualization.
When you dream normally, and unlike in daydreams, you feel more like an active participant than merely an observer. But have you ever tried to change a sleep dream as it unfolds? Most people find this next to impossible, which is because dreams are controlled by your unconscious, not your conscious mind. You can turn around and look closely at objects. If you choose, you can float up into the air and effortlessly fly around. When you do so, you can see how all the objects around you appear realistically in three dimensions and that you and they move absolutely correctly with respect to each other, as they would in real life.
At the time the dream seemed like a hugely expensive digital animation. Try exploring the world you find yourself in. Touch and feel things. Breathe in and smell the air. So try flying over the landscape and feel the breeze rushing past you. Perform magic. Make rabbits appear out of thin air, or build a castle with a wave of your hand.
I find that about five or ten minutes is the standard length of a lucid dream or at least in dream time it feels like five or ten minutes , after which your unconscious takes over again, just as it does when you fall asleep. So after a minute or two of enjoying the lucid dream, you can really live your visualizations by incorporating them into your dream. Take a look at the following examples for ideas of how to use your lucid dreams to your advantage: Practise running a mile in five seconds, leaping over tall buildings and mountains, or bouncing up to the moon.
Therefore the results of visualizations within lucid dreams are among the most effective you can have. Many people have difficulty getting into a lucid state while dreaming. However, if you do find that you can go lucid while dreaming then it is a tool you can use to augment your creative visualization. Turning a dream into a lucid dream Lucid dreaming is most likely to occur after any long period without sleep.
In fact, middleof-the-day naps tend to be excellent for successful lucid dreaming. Be aware that lucid dreaming is a possibility in these cases, so that you recognise it when it happens and can take full advantage. You can also use creative visualization to help bring on lucid dreaming.
After a while, your unconscious realises that you want a lucid dream, and it may choose to relinquish control to your conscious mind in some dreams. To bring on lucid dreaming and to continue experiencing it, keep the concept at the forefront of your thoughts. In this section, I describe a couple of powerful visualization techniques that you can practise in a second or two.
Experiencing Reinforcing visualizations Reinforcing visualizations are ones in which you practise building on an existing situation or skill. For example, athletes who visualize may reinforce their feelings of strength and endurance, or people giving up an entrenched habit, such as smoking, carry out reinforcement visualizations that help to maintain their willpower.
Both negative and positive reinforcement visualizations Chapter 4: As an example, when trying to quit smoking, you can focus on not having all the nasty tar and pollutants coating your lungs. Whatever you visualize, your unconscious mind will focus on it.
Creative Visualization and Visualizing Creativity
So if you visualize a negative thing, even if only because you want it to stop, you actually tend to reinforce it unwittingly. Using Interrupt visualizations Interrupt visualizations are those in which you follow through a course of action that normally leads to an undesired ending, but then you interrupt it just before that ending, and make something else happen instead. At the last minute, however, imagine moving your hand away to a glass of water, which is then picked up and drunk in place of the cookie.
Performed enough times, an interrupt visualization helps to replace old unwanted patterns with new desired ones, and the old habit fades away. As you get more accustomed to visualizing throughout the day, ample opportunities present themselves for you to do a quick visualization. Try to take advantage of as many of them as possible, because each one helps to reinforce the others and is another step towards achieving your goals.
As part of my goal to make this book as interesting and useful to as many people as possible, whenever I take a break from writing I imagine briefly different types of readers 8 teenagers, athletes, retired people, entrepreneurs, and so on — reading the book and discovering something beneficial. This way I hope to ensure that I include as wide a range of examples and exercises as I can for use in a variety of typical situations.
Getting to Grips with Guided Visualization Guided visualization is where you consciously take control of your visualization and guide it on a course from start to end. You find out about the object from its setting and its function — if it has one — and the more information you take on board about the object, the better you remember it. In the same way, visualizing something in a structured manner helps you to discover or develop a new skill or ability.
Visualize yourself taking the swings and imagine how all your muscles feel as you do so. When someone smiles, for example, you feel the smile too. Likewise if a child falls and bangs its head you feel that bump too.
In the same way, by watching something happening and then imagining doing that thing yourself, you can already start to build the neural connections needed to learn a new skill. While unguided visualization can help you to make sense of your current life, this section introduces you to ways of using guided visualizations to shape your future. Following a visualization plan The most important thing about guided visualization is that you follow a plan. Exploring the Different Types of Visualization Using audio or video assistance Many CDs and websites are available that contain narrated, guided visualizations for you to use.
These guides typically focus on specific goals, such as relaxation, quitting smoking, or losing weight. If you have difficulty using your imagination, why not get a DVD or Internet video to help you. These types of guided visualizations are really best suited for helping you to get started with visualization.
Try recording yourself reading the visualizations onto a computer or smartphone and then visualize as you play back the recordings. Memorise one or two exercises as soon as you can so you can simply recall them as and when you need to do them.
In this way, you get started with your visualizations sooner rather than later. Discovering How to Visualize One of my mental flash card visualizations is to turn a picture of a biscuit or other snack food quickly into half an hour of brisk walking on a treadmill.
I force myself to consider two options: Throughout Parts III and IV of this book, I provide loads of examples of mental flash cards that you can use to accompany your own visualizing. Writing Down Your Visualizations To enhance your visualizations, or if you find using your imagination difficult when you first begin visualizing, try writing them down.
And, because when your goals are in writing they never change unless you rub them out and change them yourself , this method can be used to help precisely reinforce an objective. Written visualizations can be pinned to the wall or somewhere that you frequently see them. They can then act as a constant reminder, spurring you on to visualize your goals more frequently. Setting yourself goals is the main type of written visualization.
Simply take a blank piece of paper and a pen and write down half a dozen or so of your most important goals for the following couple of years. Figure shows an example. Flip back to Chapter 2 for tips on setting yourself achievable goals. When your goals are clearly chosen and written down, and with the piece of paper signed and dated, put it somewhere that you can see it regularly, such as on the wall, beside the bathroom mirror, and so on.
To keep those goals focused in your mind, read them out loud to yourself at least twice a day. I find that planning goals over a two-year period is useful, as is updating them each year. I keep the old sheets of paper which I laminate and stick the new ones over them. If you do this, each new two-year plan can overlap the previous one by a year, and so you can modify existing goals and continue on from or replace completed ones.
Chapter 2 contains other ways of re-affirming your goals. Figure If you also have life-long ambitions — goals that may take many years or even decades to achieve — you may also want to write these down on another sheet of paper. Long-term goals may be becoming company director of a major firm, obtaining a doctorate, bringing up a large family, becoming a head teacher, or anything that takes much of your lifetime to complete.
As a young man Hill met the steel magnate Andrew Carnegie who instilled in him several principles that Carnegie used to build his financial empire; the fundamental lesson was the importance of writing down your goals. In , Harvard followed up these students and found that the 13 per cent with unwritten goals were earning twice as much money as the 84 per cent with no goals, and that the three per cent with written goals were making ten times as much money as the other 97 per cent combined.
As the playwright George Bernard Shaw said: It also discusses the need for making room in your life for the change so that it fits in snugly, and how to prepare yourself for changes that in some cases may mean getting used to a different way of life, and even letting go of some cherished behaviours and assumptions. Wanting to Change Before you can bring about any improvements in your life, you need first to really want to change. Discovering How to Visualize From this desire springs motivation, and from that comes decision, which leads to energy and finally action.
But the change starts with a little seed: Knowing that you must truly want something to change Like many people, you may intuitively feel that you want different things from your life, and you may even understand and accept that you have to change in order to achieve those things. But this feeling is more of a detached realisation without any depth of conviction, and certainly the desire for change may not be very strong. But if you can imagine having already achieved your goals, how does that emotionally feel?
What scenes do you imagine as a result of this achievement? By visualizing having achieved your goal you begin to invoke sensory images which in turn induce unconscious behavioural and cognitive leaps. To help you with this, Figure uses the metaphor of life as a car journey that requires you to change a wheel when you want to change yourself. Wheel A represents the general pattern of going through life without thinking about change. But the time comes when these things begin to bother you much more and you want to make some changes.
Then, generally, you decide to swap your old wheel for wheel B, in which the typical change cycle is as follows: Three wheels representing different approaches to change. C Unthinking Unthinking Un 76 Chapter 5: Preparing Yourself for Change 1. Living with your initial frame of mind. Becoming aware of a need for change.
Deciding which change to make. Getting ready for the change psyching yourself up. Making the change in practice. Continuing the change. Using willpower to stay focused. Relapsing when willpower fails. This cycle explains the reason why people so often fail at making changes: Sadly, you often start to address problems in earnest only when they get in the way of what you want to do. You need to try to move your change to this wheel as soon as you reach the maintenance part of the wheel B cycle.
When you use wheel C, you maintain your change through creative visualization and feel satisfied as a result; therefore, you want to continue visualizing to maintain the pleasure. In wheel C, creative visualization takes the place of willpower in wheel B by removing the opportunity to relapse if your resolve weakens.
Making the change one of your main desires To achieve and maintain important and real improvements, you have to want them to happen, and so you may need to work on how much you desire a change before you set out on making it. Then decide whether you ought to work on any of these aspects.
If so, you can begin to visualize wanting the thing to change so your desire for this change grows. Discovering How to Visualize And wherever you can, make sure you visualize successful achievement of the desired goal and the impressions you feel about this achievement. This helps to bypass any mental roadblocks you have in place that have been preventing you from trying to achieve a goal.
Anticipating the change eagerly Instead of just making the desire to change one of your main goals, motivate yourself as fully as you can so you become excited about and eager for the change. You can accomplish this aim by using visualization to realise and concentrate on how much happiness, health, joy, wealth, and so on the change is going to bring.
In this type of change, which releases time back to you, you need to find other things to do with this time, and so you can concentrate on these new time fillers. For example: You may even write some songs or tunes, or join a band, local choir, or other musical group.
Picture the admiration from friends enjoying your cakes and then asking for the recipe. Imagine feeling far healthier, having more energy throughout the day, experiencing the sense of achievement, and all the other positive aspects of the new, fitter, healthier you. Chapter 5: This section covers some of the changes that may occur and helps you plan for them. But why does the dream of owning huge amounts of money turn into a nightmare for so many?
Many lottery winners are quickly thrust into the limelight and their previously private world is swiftly replaced with a whirlwind of people and huge changes taking place, almost daily. As well as all this unsettling new activity, winners also generally have no prior understanding of the complexities of managing a great deal of wealth, and some go on to lose every penny. The huge win is simply too much, too quickly for some people. Similar problems can arise with musicians and actors who become suddenly famous.
Because the change is too fast, they feel overwhelmed — in many cases leading to a downward spiral of alcohol and drug abuse.
In contrast, people who have a goal, who work hard towards it, and visualize and plan for it, manage their success quite naturally. Modifying your regular routines The first things to do when planning any life change are to modify your regular routines and create time and space in which you can progress your change effectively, as I describe in the following two sections.
Changing your patterns You can find that your daily routine is impeding your attempts to change and needs altering. To help do so, after a meal at home you may decide to do the washing up immediately.
Making time for the change You may find that creating the necessary time to visualize and pursue your goal is difficult, particularly when your desire is something time-consuming such as completing a degree via a correspondence course. In these cases, effective planning is essential. Whatever your goal, determine how much time you need to set aside and allocate at least that much as soon as you can, even before you start out. See yourself with a free, minute slot doing the thing you need to do, and fast forward through the full half-hour noticing how nothing and nobody interrupts you.
A person can have so many goals that listing them all is impossible. But whatever your ambitions, you need to create new routines to facilitate them as soon as you can. Humans are creatures of habit and the sooner you instil a new more positive habit in place of the previously undesired one, the quicker it becomes ingrained — and the faster any stress caused by the change dissipates.
People who successfully quit smoking often become very anti-smoking, whereas they simply disliked it before stopping.
The same goes for people who stop other habits such as Chapter 5: Preparing Yourself for Change excessive drinking. Try to remain aware of this change in attitude beforehand, because people who give up bad habits can often come across to other people as quite irritating in their new-found zeal.
But try to temper your enthusiasm a little.
This unfortunate reaction is human nature: They forget how they struggled through difficult patches themselves. Your assumptions also change in positive ways. For example, as your desired changes begin to manifest, you expect them to do so more frequently, as you become accustomed to the fact that creative visualization works. Your life is going to be different. But even so, seeing exactly what differences occur can still come as a surprise.
In addition, food tastes much better, and you may find that you start preparing and consuming food more, perhaps with dinner parties or dining out more frequently. An unexpected side effect of the latter change, however, is that your weight may come under pressure.
Whatever your desired change, things are going to be different and being aware of the possibilities can help you cope with them: If you practise any of the techniques in this book to bring changes into your life, you can be certain that when they happen, things are definitely going to be different — mostly in positive and pleasurable ways. Welcoming the Changes Your creative visualization improvement programme is going to bring changes with it, and you need to be ready to welcome them and strive to integrate everything new into your life as seamlessly as possible.
As a regular user of creative visualization, try to get into the mindset of always giving positive changes a good home, whatever they are and however they manifest. Unforeseen negative changes and reactions can also arise, however, often as side effects. Fortunately, these negative aspects tend to be minimal generally just annoyances really and you can easily handle them.
Read on to find out how. Preparing Yourself for Change Understanding that all changes are part of the overall plan As you accomplish your goals, things around you change and continue to do so as long as you set new goals and visualize attaining them. Therefore, your life is a constant supply of new events, new people to meet, new activities to get involved in, and so on. The life of a creative visualizer is one of constant changes, all of which are part of your overall life plan.
Seeking ways to accommodate the good and shun the bad As well as all the good that arises from positive thinking and creative visualization, other people may sometimes get jealous of your achievements and you may find that gossiping or even backstabbing can occur, particularly at work. Because the status quo is changing, with you as a rising star.
Of course, other people being negative towards you is unpleasant, so try to visualize positively for them to lessen their impact on your life as the following visualization describes. Spend some time thinking about how all people are individuals just like you, made up of trillions of atoms all connected in complicated and amazing ways to form a living, walking, and talking human being.
In other words they are amazing too. They have friends and family, and mothers and fathers who love them. How to use affirmations How to create and use vision boards.

Brings You Joy Even though the visualization may not be true right now, even the thought of it can spark joy in your life. This means that you can experience the joy and excitement you would feel if it were real, which only makes your visualizations stronger. Gives You Inspiration Just like with our confidence, visualizations can also give us a big dose of inspiration too.
When we visualize our goals and dreams, we become inspired to make them happen. This inspiration can spur us to actually take action towards our goals. If we can see our goals in a visualization then it inspires us to make sure we will see it in our reality as well.
Improved Relationships As creative visualization can help you with positivity, motivation, confidence, and inspiration, it can also help you with improved relationships.
This could be with friends or a partner. As you visualize you become more confident in yourself and your abilities. This can help to improve your social life and relationships as your overall wellbeing will be improved. Whatever your goal, be sure to try these basic steps to start using creative visualization to your advantage. We also recommend you get the corresponding Creative Visualization Hypnosis audio! It can help boost your meditative state and improve your manifestation technique.
Step One: Set The Mood It is vital to be in a relaxed and positive state of mind when you attempt creative visualization. For example, you might try taking a quiet walk in a peaceful area, soaking in a hot bath or listening to mellow instrumental music. Once you're feeling relaxed, find a place where you won't be disturbed and can be comfortable for the duration of the process. The longer you are able to spend working on your visualization, the more effective it is likely to be.
Step Two: Enter A Meditative State Creative visualization tends to be most intense and meaningful if you take the time to do a straightforward meditative exercise before you begin. For most people, all that is needed is a few minutes spent focusing on slow, steady breathing. Step Three: Visualize Your Goal Once your mind feels still and receptive, start crafting an image of the thing you want, taking as long as you like to build up all of the details.
For example, if you are working towards a major promotion at work, imagine yourself receiving the announcement and picture the positive reactions of people around you.
