How to Visualise
Can anyone do it?
I think so. Though many will say they can’t do it at all. If someone says draw a tree and there are none nearby, you draw from imagination. If you can imagine something then you can and are visualising.
Some can see pictures with great detail others not so much. As with everything though, practice can improve that skill a lot.
Does it work?
Sometimes this makes us feel as if we’ve already accomplished whatever it’s we’re beginning to materialise and it allows us to relax, no longer feeling the need to make an effort. I imagine this does depend upon the individual person.
But that’s not to say that visualisation is useless. It’s just a matter of understanding how to use it as a tool and how to not allow it to take over.
Is it daydreaming?
No. Sometimes people mix up the two. They begin visualising then drift off into a daydream. Daydreaming tends to be more vague and wishful thinking, wanting something you don’t have.
When you visualise, it’s important to put in the details of what you INTEND to have. Note it’s Intend not WANT. Why? Because want says you don’t have it. Intent states you are working towards it.
The why and how is left up to the universe. Trying to make it appear a certain way or by a particular method or by a set time, does not usually work. In other words give the How and When, some leeway. Flesh out what you want with details but add that’s what you want or something better.
This is what so many leave out. You can visualise all day and every day endlessly, without success, if you don’t add in the emotion of how it will make you feel.
You might say “I don’t know how I will feel”. That’s possible but you can imagine. Trust me, your subconscious does not know the difference between real and imagined.
Think about how it would feel to actually have what you are imagining/visualising. Happy, excited, ecstatic, grateful, thankful etc.
Visualisation does work. We are all capable of attracting an abundance of good things into our lives. The universe is full of abundance, there is more than enough for everyone and all of us are worthy of that abundance.
However, many of us do not grow up with that mindset.
So many people are damaged in childhood, sometimes intentionally but mostly not. Times do change and in the past adults around us did not understand the far reaching consequences of the things they said and did.
So many people have beliefs that limit them due to careless words.
An angry adult might have said: ‘You won’t amount to anything/you won’t get anywhere in life with that attitude. You are thick, useless, stupid etc.’
Any of those ring bells? There are of course many many more in a similar vein. The point is they go into our subconscious and hold us back from living our best life because we ‘Believe we aren’t enough.’
Another thing we hear a lot about nowadays but it is relevant to this topic. How many times have you tried the Law of Attraction methods, Affirmations, visualisations and other methods out there?
A lot, I bet. Probably spent a fortune too, with different courses, books and workshops. Then of course you give up believing it’s a load of rubbish. Or you continue on because something deep down tells you there is more.
What can you do?
With a bit of work you can remove limiting beliefs and move forwards. There are faster methods and slower methods. Marisa Peer, a world renowned Therapist says ‘I am not enough’ is the biggest thing holding people back and causing problems in their lives. SEE HERE
Not every method works for every person of course but you can reprogramme your subconscious. This will allow you to move forwards easily and become the person you know you can be, to live that better life.
Do research. Look on YouTube, there are some amazing people on there. Google it and check out what comes up. Try meditation. Go with what resonates with you.
Make those pictures in your head clear and detailed, feel the emotion and attach it to those pictures. Don’t insist on a specific timeline or how it’s delivered. You can always add or something better.
Don’t attach results to other people having to do certain things to reach your goal, they are an unknown variable. You may not get what you want if it hinges on another person.
Don’t allow yourself to think it won’t happen. Then let it go to the universe and wait. It might be a week, month, a year or longer before everything is aligned to produce what you want.
In reality, we are all like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. She had the power all along, just as you have the power within you to do and become whatever you want.
