How to Harness the Power of Visualization

Aug 17, 2007
We have all heard of the tremendous power of visualization - the process of creating a mental picture of what you want as a means of acquiring or achieving something you desire. While it may seem like a lot of metaphysical mumbo-jumbo, I would challenge you to reflect on the goals in your life that you have realized and conclude that visualization was not an important part of the process.

We've all done it in the past - think back to something good in your life that you worked for and achieved and you will undoubtedly recall having had a strong mental image of the outcome that served as inspiration and motivation.

Create mental images of the things you want to achieve or acquire and bring them to mind several times a day. As part of my personal development program, I have documented what my goals are. I have them stored on my computer, and have a program that causes it to pop up three times a day. At first, I was just reading them, but an odd thing started to happen after about a week. As I read them, I unconsciously brought up the visual image I had created. In my mind's eye, I actually see the ultimate outcome of goals I have set for myself.

Another method to use when visualizing is to put yourself in the picture. If the image is of your dream house, picture yourself relaxing in your living room, or swimming in your custom-built pool. Imagine yourself driving your dream car down the road as if you didn't have a care in the world. Apply action to your visions...they will take on a life of their own. Take a few minutes at least once a day to indulge yourself, and daydream using these mental videos. You will find that your subconscious will start to accept these daydreams as possibilities, then as probable outcomes, and finally as your destiny!

The three vital aspects that cannot be overlooked in order to make this process work are:

Visualize. Picture the result of having reached your goal, whether it is a tangible object or an intangible objective. View these pictures often.

Verbalize. Say it aloud, even if only to yourself. This will make the goal more real to both your conscious and subconscious mind.

Share. If your family and friends aren't particularly supportive, find people who are. The internet abounds with forums where you can find positive input from people who are of like mind - and they are quite often able to provide tips and advice to make the road a little easier to traverse.

Even if you are skeptical about this method being effective, you should give it a whirl - I guarantee you that nothing bad will come of it, and the potential for astounding things to happen is mind-boggling.
