Using the Power of the Art of Visualizing: to Manifest Your Dreams
“Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so you shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil.” –James Allen
It’s empowering to know that we can literally alter our lives and physiques by visualizing our desires often. I've used the Art of Visualizing for years, it always works in helping me achieve my goals and dreams.
Your mind is the key that unlocks the door to success or failure. What you believe about yourself is a self-prophesy. Think about a time when you just knew you could do something that might have seemed nearly impossible to someone else. As you believed in your ability to achieve, you moved forward diligently to accomplish your task at hand.
Everything you do begins with a thought first, even driving to the grocery store, you visualize the store you want to go to before you leave your home. Think about your life as it now and how it's a mirror of your inner thoughts and beliefs. To improve your quality of life and utilize the power of your mind, you must first change the way you think about yourself and the world around you, to that of being confident and optimistic.
Love & Believe in YOU
When you love and believe in yourself unconditionally, you're able to be in harmony with your inner power, and that's when utilizing the Art of Visualizing is most beneficial. The infinite power of your mind is your greatest tool of creation.
By having thoughts and feelings that are positive and uplifting, you’ll be in alignment with your higher self. And when you’re in alignment with who you really are, that’s when your dreams will begin to become your reality.
Your thoughts and emotions are like magnets, a simple thought will have a weak magnetic pull much like a small magnet does and a powerful thought tied to an intense emotion, such as feelings of joy, excitement, or fear will have a much greater magnetic pull, thus it will magnetize more of what you are feeling into your life.
Our thoughts are magnetic on every level, that is why “like always attracts like”, it’s a universal law—the Law of Attraction in action. Being mindful of your thoughts through the power of prayer, visualization, meditation, goal setting, and positive affirmations you will have more inner peace and steadfastness to stay focused on what you want to achieve to have great success.
Movies in Your Mind
The constant images that play over and over in your mind are like movie trailers to your upcoming life attractions. The movies you see in your mind indicates to your subconscious what people, places, and things to attract in your life.
The more intense your emotions are the stronger the rockets of desires you signal out to the universe. Highly energized thoughts or “movies” magnetize to you what you’re focused on most often, which will create more of what you are habitually thinking about regardless if it is for your highest good or not. That’s why it’s essential to think thoughts about what you want to achieve, the solutions to your problems, and to look for that which you want to see!
Visualizing is how our brains work, everything we do is based on memories in our subconscious, which bring up images and thoughts in our minds, which then bring about feelings and emotions. How we feel is based on our beliefs and what we think about and visualize.
Practice Visualizing Your Dreams
Practicing visualization daily can assist your ability to manifest with intention. Visualization is creating a mental picture of something that you want more of, such as having more love, joy, health, wellness, prosperity, and happiness.
Visualization is important because it makes the future become crystal clear in your mind’s eye, which ultimately reprograms your subconscious mind to align universal powers by the grace of God to bring your vision to fruition, in one form or another.
Seeing yourself as though you have already achieved your goals in your mind’s eye will create a new belief in your mind of that which is to be; therefore, the subconscious mind will begin to align that which is needed to manifest what you believe.
Focusing consistently on your goals by concentrating on them one at a time will help you accomplish your goals far sooner than if you didn't focus on them at all. Being mindful of your goals along with saying affirmations throughout the day will help you accomplish your goals in a shorter amount of time and with less effort.
If you find visualizing difficult, do this exercise daily until you can visualize easily:
· Look at a photo or an object and study it closely. Then close your eyes and visualize it in complete detail. If you see the picture clearly, you are visualizing! If this doesn't work or if you want to improve your visualization skills on a deeper level, then take the same picture or object and while looking at it, close your eyes and open your eyes several times for a few minutes. You will be able to see the picture more clearly in your mind each time you close your eyes.
· Then close your eyes and imagine it again, concentrate on the image in your mind for several minutes, try to visualize it longer each day with your eyes closed without interruption by drifting thoughts.
· Practice this technique daily for 10 minutes each day for a week, then do so for up to 20 minutes the following weeks. You can focus on anything that you find beautiful or blissful.
· Practice this simple exercise often until visualizing comes naturally.
