Meditation and Creative Visualisation
Creative visualization is a powerful tool for improving your confidence and bringing things towards you. It is very simple process and works on a very uncomplicated premise. Unfortunately the ‘secrets’ of creative visualization are often sold for unreasonable amounts of money, despite the actual process being within anyone’s grasp! It is possible to undertake creative visualization without any props or expensive tuition books, lessons or C.D.’s once you have understood the basic principles.
How Creative Visualization WorksCreative visualization works on a similar premise that meditation works. As one meditates the mind becomes used to relaxing and observing the moment in such a way that this attitude becomes permanently ingrained in the individual over time. In the same way it is possible to permanently affect the course of your thinking, and therefore of your life, through the positive creative visualization of the things that you wish for.
The mind works on the basis that all impressions and thoughts on a conscious level are stored on an unconscious level. Therefore, if you express negative thoughts regularly, you are merely going to reinforce these feelings and values and make them grow stronger. This can be counteracted by envisioning positive scenarios and thinking and saying positive things. Remember, you are essentially the sum of everything you believe yourself to be!
Positive AffirmationsThe way you think about things linguistically has a huge effect on your everyday experience of life. For example, you may have a career ambition and keep telling yourself that:
- ‘I’d love to be a ‘Your Chosen Career’, but I bet I’ll never make it’
- ‘I want to be a ‘Your Chosen Career’ but it’s going to be difficult for me to achieve that’,
Here is one example:
- ‘I am strong and loving and constantly manifest all of the things that I want around me.’
Note that the above affirmation is not over specific. You will gain little from merely reciting your desire to own a Ferrari! It is far better to merely assert your general feeling of wellbeing and your comfort ability with your surroundings.
