First let’s look at what visualization is and how it works. What we are doing when we visualize something is using our imagination to create a form which attracts the energy necessary to fulfill it. Therefore in doing so we are laying the foundation for creating a particular experience for ourselves.
Einstein said “imagination is more important the knowledge”. What we are doing when we are imagining or visualizing is working with laws of nature. And what we discover is that there are laws of nature of principles of life that governs how we each create our own experiences. If we understand these laws and live in harmony with them we can create whatever we chose.
To help you understand how visualization works, let’s look at some laws of nature that are involved in the process of visualization. First it is important to understand the first law of nature that we work with in the Unlimited Futures programs, which is that “Everything in existence is Love expressing intelligently through energy.” Everything in existence is energy on the physical or material level of life. The next principle that you need to understand is that consciousness or intelligence moves and forms energy. We state the second principle we work with this way “Thought directs energy”. Then to fully understand it you need to know that there is also a law of “Attraction and repulsion”. This law is always affecting us similar to gravity. It is always attracting to us the energy necessary to fulfill whatever we believe in, and focus our attention on.
When we understand these laws of nature of principles of life we can then see why imagination is so important. We are always visualizing even when we are not aware of it. Visualization is just images in our minds, but when we understand the laws of nature that governs how we create we can see how important it is to consciously visualize what we want to create for ourselves.
Visualization works best when we are quiet and peaceful. That is when our thoughts are the most powerful. We work with a process of stretching exercises, breathing exercises and meditation for releasing stress and strengthening the nervous system, which we recommend that people do on a daily basis. It is most valuable to visualize what you want to create when you have completed this process. Your greatest power actually lies in silence, and the closer you are to the silence when you visualize the more powerful your visualization will be.
Guided visualizations are helpful in letting you visualize from a very settled state. You can remain in a more settled state if you can simply follow someone’s voice into visualization, than if you need to create it for yourself. Guided visualization also helps you become comfortable with visualizing.
I have prepared a CD with 10 relaxation/visualizations on it to help you become quiet and settled and experience a very beneficial visualization. It is a place to start, but in time you also want to be able to create your own visualizations so you can create specifically what you want.
We work with a 7 step process for creating what you want. The first step is Clarity, you first need to get as clear as possible about what you want to create then you are ready for the second step which is visualization.
I have described this process in detail and provided diagrams and step-by-step guidelines in my book entitled Unlimited Futures: How to Understand the Life You Have and Create the Life You Want.
In addition to the relaxation/visualization CD, I have also created a workbook to help you get started working with the process.
We actually provide a full program for personal growth on all levels of life. Please check it out.
