What is Visualization and How Does it Work?
Visualization is using your imagination to picture what you want, vividly and with feeling, as if it is already happening.
It is based on the principles of the law of attraction., which states, what you focus on becomes reality. it is also related to the law of compensation, which states the energy you give will come back to you in equal measure.
How Visualisation for Manifestation Works
Creative visualization works by reprogramming your subconscious mind and using the universal energy to create what you want.
Your subconscious mind loves images…
The subconscious mind responds to images, emotion and symbols. When you repeat a visualisation consistently your subconscious responds because it does not distinguish between imagination and reality. It will start to attract people and situations to fulfil the image you have created.
The Universal energy will give you what you ask for…
As the Law of Divine Oneness states, everything is made of the same universal energy. Your imagination is made of the same thing as the screen you are looking at. They are vibrating at different frequencies so one seems more solid than the other.
When you visualize vividly with feeling you send out a vibration to the universe, the universe responds by meeting that vibration and changing it into a solid reality.
Why Learning How to Visualize for Manifestation is Important
Visualisation is important because it forms the basis of all other manifestation methods and is the key to manifesting your reality.
Without a clear and colourful image of what you want, you will not be able to feel as if it already exists.
And without the feeling you will not manifest your desire.
There are also other benefits of learning how to visualize for manifestation, it helps…
Clarify your desire. When you consistently visualize what you want, you will find out different things about your desire. It might go from a vague idea to something very specific.
Focus on what you want. We have tendency to focus on what we don’t have. This is a normal human trait. However, the law of attraction does not care what you focus on, it will give you it no matter what it is. If you focus on lack it will give you lack and if you focus on abundance it will give you abundance.
Boosts your mood. When you create a mental image of your dream life as if it already exists, it feels good. You will take these positive feelings with you into your life. This will attract the right people to your energy.
Increase your confidence. When you visualize you will start seeing a path to your desired outcome, the universe will respond by creating opportunities. This will increase your confidence and you will feel excited and motivated to take action.
Overcome Limiting beliefs. This maybe challenging at first, your limiting beliefs will say you cannot have what you want because you are not good enough or are unworthy of it. But if you continue with visualization you can overcome these beliefs with positive ones. Eventually you will rewire your belief system, so that you see possibility rather than barriers.
Gives power to overcome challenges. You will have challenges on your way to your dream. Some external and others internal. By practicing visualisation you will have the positive energy and momentum not give up when you meet obstacles.
Inspired action. When you feel your dream already exists, it will show in your actions. The way you talk and behave will be infused with a different energy. You will pass on that energy into everything you do.
Does Learning How to Visualize for Manifestation Really Work?
Yes! it works. I have used it to create a job that was perfect for me at the time, and a relationship with someone I had seen once, briefly.
I did not know I was using visualisation at the time, but later realised I was following it’s principles.
People through the ages have spoken of its’s powers, from mystics of all back grounds to positive thinkers like Normal Vincent Peale.
Later you will read about the successful people who have also used visualisation.
Step By Step Guide on How to Visualize for Manifestation
To use your imagination effectively for visualization, follow these steps:
You want to be in calm and positive state from the start. So take a few deep breaths and scan your body for any tension. Focus on the tension and breathe into it to release it. You can also use any relaxing technique that works for you.
Decide what you want to create in your life. Be clear on the outcome you desire. Be specific. If you want a relationship, state what kind of relationship you want and for what reason. Is it someone you want to date and do fun things with or someone you want to marry and start a family with?
Now close your eyes (you can also have them open if you prefer, it does not reduce the affect) and imagine your desire as if it has already happened, in much detail as possible. See the colours, feel the things around you. Visualise the smells.
Imagine the scene from your perspective as you would be if you were living it. Do not be an observer of the scene, live in it. Imagine what you would do and feel once you have your dream in reality. Breathe in the feeling to your whole being.
Go through this process as many times as you want. When you do it consistently it will reprogram your subconscious mind. Like anything, the more you practice the better you will get at it. You will visualise more vividly and with deeper emotions each time you do it.
Eventually it will become part of who you are and you will be able to visualise immediately without going through the process. You will be able to visualise while shopping, at the gym or at work.
The universe responds to a lightness of spirit. Have fun with it. When you are positive and are enjoying the process you will stick to it. You don’t want to turn visualisation into a chore.
Some Effective Visualization Techniques and Tricks to Make Your Visualization More Powerful
Anything you can do to make your visualisation vivid and real will enhance your manifesting. As will things you can do to make it part of your day to day life, so it is constantly working in the back ground.
Use these principles with your visualisation and manifest faster…
Affirmations are positive verbal statements repeated out loud or in your mind.
You can add these to your visualisation practice to help create the atmosphere and clarity for your imagination.
Say them in the present tense “I am married to the man of my dreams and we are walking on the beach” not “I will be married to the man of my dreams.”
The purpose of visualisation is to get to the emotion of having your dream. If you visualise it and it feels dry, you will not be able to manifest.
So go for the emotion of it.
Imagine when you get what what you want, what will you feel? Gratitude? peace? excitement?
When you do this, you will make visualisation a whole body experience, just like everyday life.
Use props to trigger your subconscious mind:
You can add objects around the home to enhance your visualization technique…
You can use a vision board, which is a collage of images, photo’s and symbols the represent your desire.
You can have ornaments and figures around the home that represent abundance to you.
You can use Feng Shui principles to have your home or office environment give of abundance positive energy and flow, this will help your visualisation no end. Your environment will then be a constant symbol of your desire to your subconscious mind.
Make use of the times of day to your advantage.
Visualize at night time, as you fall asleep. Overnight your subconscious mind will work on it. Just as you fall asleep is powerful because your conscious mind does not get in the way. So you are less likely to talk yourself out of what you want and block manifesting.
Another good time is to visualise as soon as you wake up, before getting out of bed. Again, at this time your subconscious is open and your conscious mind has not fully kicked in yet. It’s also a great way to start the day.
Your whole day will be infused with good feelings, which will open you up to seeing opportunities you might otherwise miss.
You can also visualise while exercising (if safe) and after exercise. At the those times your critical mind is out of the way, so you can drop your desire into your deeper self and let it ripple out into your life. Obviously, you do this with eyes open, like daydreaming.
Gratitude is a great amplifier energy.
List the things that you are grateful for that you already have. This could be big or small. From being grateful for your lovely home to having a comfy pillow to sleep on.
A way you can use gratitude is to list the things you are grateful for before you start your visualisation. It get’s you in the abundance mindset, which you will take with you when you imagine your dream.
This is one of my favourite visualization techniques because it gets rid of the major block for manifestation, negative energy. The law of correspondence tells us, what we think and feel is reflected in our circumstances.
Use the perfect day technique:
If you are finding it hard to visualise your desire, or you cannot choose what you want to manifest, use the perfect day technique.
This is where you imagine your perfect day in much details as possible. Imagine the colours, smells, taste and feelings.
It’s a powerful visualization technique
Go through your day from morning to night. Eventually you will focus on one area of your day that you want the most. If not, carry on with the perfect day visualisation.
Once You Have learned How to Visualize for Manifestation. How Often Should You Do it?
You want to use the visualization practice at least once a day. The more you do it the better you will get at it and the more powerful it becomes.
I recommend you do it everyday in the morning and night at a minimum. But you can add more if it feels right to you.
Commit to doing it for 30 days. After that it will become second nature to you.
Can You Use Visualisation for Anything You Want?
As long as you really want those things, and are not chasing them because other people are.
Remember, you must feel your wish is already here. In order to do that, you must have a deep desire for it.
