Visualization has been used by many to achieve success. but what is visualization exactly? How can it be used? With all of the talk about visualization out there it can seem perhaps a little overwhelming and confusing. Visualization is more than just daydreaming, it's different than meditation and it's not a religious belief. So what is it, here is a brief explanation of visualization and how it can be used.
What is Visualization?
Visualization involves seeing yourself in specific situations with the overall expectation that by practicing visualization techniques it will assist you in creating that scenario in your life. When you practice visualization, you focus on something that you want and you imagine yourself achieving it. Some say that by doing this you heighten your awareness of the people and things around you that pertain to your vision and will make it more likely that you will recognize opportunities that will help you achieve your goals.
As the Bible says, as a man thinketh, so is he. So by focusing on what you want and visualizing it you become more of what you focus on.
How Is Visualization Used?
You can use visualization techniques to accomplish virtually anteing that you like. However, it is usually applied to specific life situations and circumstances.
Business – Many successful business men and women attribute their success at least in part to the practice of visualization techniques. Visualizing business success has been credited with increased income, more clients and customers and a stronger sense of self-confidence.
Self-Image – Visualization can be used to help you to improve your self-image. By using visualization, you can imagine yourself as a more confident, competent, popular person. And by doing this consistently, with feeling these “dreams” then begin to play themselves out in your life, starting a cycle that continually boosts your self-esteem.
* Relationships – It is said that visualization can help relationships. Perhaps you could envision yourself in a successful marriage, or meeting your soul mate. Maybe you can visualize improving an existing relationship. Maybe you have dreams for your family relationships, and could use visualization to achieve a more harmonious home.
How Do You Do It?
When you practice visualization techniques, there's a bit more involved than just daydreaming. When you seriously visualize the hopes of creating life changes, you need to be specific in your goals and imaginings. Your visualizations are supposed to be targeted toward those specific goals. Visualization infuses more energy, focus and vividness into your dreams.
When you visualize reaching your goals and dreams, you are meant to imagine the very smells, sounds, and feelings that surround the scenario. The brain is said to blur the line between observing something in real life and something imagined, enhancing the possibility that the scenario will come true.
