“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.” – George Bernard Shaw
Visualization is basically the process of imagining yourself having achieved your ideal life, down to the smallest details. Visualization is the most effective way to achieve an abundant vibration.
John Assaraf, an expert in the science of visualization, tells a story of moving into his new beautiful dream home in California and as he was unpacking boxes he came across a vision board that he had created years before. To his amazement, on that vision board, was a picture of the home he had just moved into. Not a picture of a similar home, but a picture of the very home he had just purchased. These were pictures he had cut out of Dream Homes Magazine a few years before. He had never been to the home, he had just imagined himself owing the home one day. The power of his imagination actually manifested the exact same home in his life.
He has never said “I will one day live in that exact same home.” He just felt the excitement of imagining he would one day own a home just like that.
When I was first introduced to this concept I heard about the idea of making a vision board, then I later heard about the idea of mind movies. As I began practicing this principle, the first thing I did was go to Google and search for beautiful images that represented the things I wanted to manifest in my life. Next, I pasted them on a word document. Thirdly, I typed my affirmations under the pictures that matched up with that set of affirmations. Lastly, I found inspirational music that elicited deep emotional feeling as I visualized my new life.
We all run movies in our minds and our emotions are the result of the part we are playing in those movies. If you are worried, it’s because you are imagining the problems and failures you have created in your mental movie. To fully experience True Success you need to imagine yourself already living the life you want to lead. You need to feel the life as if it were true right now. Begin re-scripting your mental movies and create a better future!
To visualize effectively it is important that you are emotionally connected to your outcome. Without the emotional connection you just won’t get the same results. Emotion is one of the most powerful ways to change your thought patterns. Without emotions you’re not changing your vibrational signal.
You can’t be visualizing something vague that doesn’t stir up any emotion, that’s why you must be clear on what you want.
Like the autistic boy, you too, can create True Success in your imagination and it will play out in ways that fulfill your dreams and passions. Remember, the more crystal-clear your images and emotions are, the more powerful your results will be. Here are some steps that might help:
Create your own vision board or mind movies. Be sure to use pictures and music that cause a deep emotional response. Remember, emotion is the language the Universe understands and our subconscious minds don’t know the difference between something imagined and something real.
If you will visualize regularly and keep a look out for the people and opportunities to help you achieve your affirmations you will be shocked at how many things start falling into place for you all on your own. This is “the flow” of True Success.
Through the power of imagination you are planting in your subconscious the seeds of True Success. If you plant a carrot seed in the ground and nourish it with water and sunlight, it’s going to grow. It’s the same way with your mental movies. If you’ll plant the seed of imagination and nourish it with emotion, your mental movies will begin to resonate with your dreams and they will bring forth the reality you’ve imagined.
Practicing this principle will put you in a select group of people. The average individual is not writing his own movies, he is only an extra in the wrong movie.
Another thing about visualization is that you can use it to continually improve on the results you are currently getting.
But long as you can’t imagine what you want to create it’s not going to happen. If you can see it, it can come to pass. You have to envision good things happening before they ever will.
If you want to connect to all the blessings and favor of your Divine Purpose, you need to enlarge your vision. You must conceive it in your mind and heart before you will receive it. This will never happen if you’re entertaining negative, defeated and limiting thoughts. What you keep before your eyes will affect you. You will produce what you’re continually seeing in your mind. If you see victory, success, health, abundance, joy, peace and happiness, nothing can block those things from manifesting in your life.
Your Divine Purpose manifests in your life as you make room for abundance and increase in your thinking. Universal laws are designed to keep us increasing and reaching new heights. This universe operates by laws that are designed to support us in our desires to create and expand. Our agency is our power to choose the life we will create. The key word here is “create.” And all things are created spiritually (mentally) before they manifest physically. This is where the role of our creative imagination comes into play.
If you don’t think you can create an abundant life it is not because the universe lacks the resources. The barrier is in your mind.
Be a Visionary
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” –Albert Einstein
In the financial world, we see examples of successful people who were visionaries. Bill Gates was a visionary, Steve Jobs was a visionary, and Walt Disney was a visionary.
True success – your Divine Purpose is always created in the mind first, whether it is financial, social, marital, or in finding you source of happiness and meaning.
Two things happen when we visualize:
1. Inwardly we are opening up the creativity of the subconscious mind. That is why when we combine affirmations with visualization we are creating a very powerful tool. Closing our eyes and seeing it as if it has already happened.
2. Then by adding the power of emotion, we give a command to our subconscious mind to figure out how to make this image a reality.
“Visualization” affects your beliefs, thoughts and emotions in ways that create powerful resonance with your Divine Purpose. Remember, the subconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between something that is real and something that is imagined. Visualization puts you more powerfully in the feeling of what your mind is creating.
The whole idea behind visualization is how it affects your feelings. Just having an image in your mind will have no effect. Remember, it’s our feelings that create our frequency. Our visualization needs to create powerful feelings of excitement, inspiration and passion. We need to use visualization to emotionally experience what we will feel when the thing we are visualizing as if it has already manifested.
Visualization x Emotion x Repetition
“Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.” – Jonathan Swift
We are constantly shaping our own brain chemistry without even realizing it. When we visualize something repeatedly with strong emotion, the repetition of that emotion begins to create new neural pathways. The strong emotions we associate with the image actually in grains the image it into our brains. The repetition causes our brain cells or neurons to fire over and over again. That’s a scientific way of saying that the more we do something the easier it is for us to do. And the easier it is for us to do the more our brains will do it, because the brain becomes addicted to the emotion of the repetition. This is the reason why we are drawn in any direction, positive or negative.
The Universe that God has created is run by infinite intelligence! Our planet is moving around the sun, the sun is in its orbit around black holes. There are Protons, Electrons and Quarks all working in perfect order and harmony. The intelligence of the Universe responds, not to our thinking, not to our words, but to our emotions, so if I am feeling and acting as if my dreams and passions are already mine the Universe will match and mirror my emotions.
Everything we see manifested in our lives is a reflection of what’s happening in the brain. Our brains do a couple of major things, first, they keep us alive and secondly, they make sure our outside world is an absolute mirror image of our internal world.
