Creative Visualization: Harnessing the Power of Your Subconscious
Wouldn’t it be nice if you have a genie at your disposal? You know, that gigantic magical creature appearing from the opaque smoke of Aladdin’s lamp who can grant three out of this world wishes? Oh, how you’d love to give up a limb to purchase such an impressive product, right?
Fame, fortune, good health, loving relationships…all these would then be yours for the taking. It’s like staring at a catalog of the universe and pointing out the ones you want to be delivered at your doorstep.
Are those things are merely wishful thinking?
Well, not exactly only if you know the right way to harness the power of your subconscious mind. Here, you are just not wishing, you are indeed commanding the universe to bring you what you want. There is actually a secret kept hidden from men that can allow the realization of their deepest desires and aspirations and the secret is creative visualization. Yes, this is indeed the message that was trying to convey by the famous ‘The Secret’ of Rhonda Bynre. What you think about becomes your reality.
Basically, creative visualization harnesses the power of your subconscious mind by converting your abstract thoughts (ideas) into concrete reality. It is founded on the premise that whatever exists in the physical level must first take place in a higher plane, which is the mental level. Your mind must first be able to see thing that you truly want before itÂ canÂ make them physicallyÂ before you. Thoughts become things and your mental images are the blueprint that your subcoscious refers to.
Just take a look at the visual masterpieces of some of the greatest artists known to mankind like Michaelangelo, Vincent Van Gogh and Pablo Picasso. Before they have picked up their respective paintbrushes, mixed the paint in their palettes or set up their reliable easels, they already have a well-defined image in their mind of what they are about to paint, one that is bursting with different vibrant shades. They just didn’t go about splashing random colors on their canvass and prayed for the best. If that’s the case, everyone can be an artist.
Just like them, it would take serious effort and intense concentration to achieve your masterpiece. Here are some easy guidelines for a calming creative visualization.
First, seek out your comfort zone. Whether you prefer to meditate in silence at a church, a secluded oratory, a tranquil temple, in your disarranged cubicle or even in the comforts of your own bedroom, the most important thing you have to remember is that you have to be at ease. Noise should be reduced at a minimum so that you can shut out from your actual environment.
Second, decide on your goal. What is your pressing need for the moment? If it is good health, then focus on attaining a healthy body. Imagine your medical examinations with positive outcomes and laboratory results on a normal level. If you want abundance, imagine cash coming in your house. Conjure images of checks in your name arriving at your mailbox. Should you decide to heal a broken relationship, visualize yourself shaking hands with your partner. Just create a distinct mental image of what you really want and let it stay on your mind.
Third, give positive feelings to your mental image. Be optimistic. Suffuse yourself with pure, unadulterated joy during that moment. Feel exhilaration, excitement and peace. Strip yourself of all the negative vibrations. Let go of heartaches and heartbreaks.
Be consistent in performing this exercise. If possible, set aside a few minutes of your time every day, preferably upon waking up in the morning and before going to sleep at night. This will solidify your expectations and put you in the right mood as you go through the motions of your daily life. Believe that the best will happen to you and your dreams will be realized sooner than expected.
