Creative visualizationWhen it comes right down to it, your mind is what’s behind all of your successes in life. And as tough as this sounds, all your failures, too. There are a bunch of ways you can harness your mind’s power to create the life of your dreams, but maybe the most powerful one is creative visualization.

Creative visualization is a simple method of harnessing your imagination to create change. When you use it the right way, you’ll find your power to attract opportunities, prosperity and happiness increases dramatically.

Why Creative Visualization Works

As we know from Quantum Physics, everything is energy – including your thoughts. Combine this with the Law of Attraction, which states that “like attracts like”, and you can now put together the puzzle of this power.

Think of your thoughts as radio waves, continually projecting outward from your mind. Even though you can’t see them, radio waves fill the air. When you turn on a radio and set it to a station, we can only hear the sounds (music, news, commercials) that are riding the frequency you’re tuned to. What you can’t hear are all the many other frequencies flying around, vibrating at a different frequency.

Different thoughts have different frequencies too, so if you’re thinking (and therefore, vibrating), frequencies of doubt, fear or failure, guess what you’re going to get? Yep. Doubt, fear or failure.

What Creative Visualization Can Do For You

What creative visualization does is change the frequency of your thoughts. By taking time every day to imagine something you want, you’re basically changing the frequency of your particular radio station. Now keep in mind that if you’ve been tuned to NEGATIVE FM for the past 5 or 10 years, a single visit to the JOY station isn’t going to suddenly turn your life around.

BUT … If you start listening to JOY daily for a while (along with her sister stations SMILE and THANKS FM), guess what? Things are going start turning around for you!

How To Use Creative Visualization

Using creative visualizations isn’t exactly as easy as changing a radio dial – but it’s not rocket science either. There are a bunch of ways you can start, depending on what you like to do. Here are a few ways.

  • If you’re a linear thinker, you may want to start with a timeline of events. Let’s say you want a better job. You can start the way all creative visualization starts, by creating a private, quiet space to begin. Relax your mind, breath deep, and if you can, get into a meditative state. Then let a story unfold. Use as much detail as possible. Maybe you’re in your favorite coffee shop one morning when you run into a friend who introduces you to someone looking for a new employee with exactly your skills … Keep going with this story, a little bit every day for about 10 days, until you’ve pluncked yourself down (in your mind’s eye) at your new desk.
  • If you’re a visual person, you can start with some art supplies. Maybe you want to paint, draw or make a collage of the improvements you’re aiming for, then look at it every day before and after a quiet time of visualization.
  • If you’re more of a word person, you may want to start with writing down or speaking your goals out loud before each visualization period.
  • Our favorite way….Quantum Jumping – the very cool power to tap into your subconscious mind and step into a new reality! Interested to learn how? Sign up for a free six-part introductory course.

When you add creative visualization to your daily routine – even just for 10 minutes – it’s like tuning into your own personal empowerment station.

Try it – and let us know below how you tune your mind into your own success frequency!

    Hi, as I read through this article, I was wondering if I really knew what the article was talking about yet It seems that I have done this kind of visualisation in the past and still do. Only I was told it is called 'fantasising' And very often about things that were beyond my reach. But, hey is anything really beyond our reach? ( Thing is I cannot be a Doctor without going to med-school, no matter how much I visualise.)
    Things never go how I want them to though. It is most frustrating, how can I control the exterior forces which prevent me from getting the things I want? I can visualise how I think something is going to go, or how I would like it to go, and unexpected obstacles come along. However when I visualise, I do not place such objects….

    Amanda, you’re right about needing to go to med school to become a doctor but… think about this….what would being a doctor give you? How would it serve you? Do you seek the respect, status? The ability ti heal? Would it fill your desire to help people, maybe something else?
    Sit for a minute and discover what this means and then you have the deeper desire and can begin to visualize that, if it sits better with you. The wonderful thing about visualizing is that it’s your imagination experienced through all your senses. In other words you need to feel it. If you discount it as impossible before you start….well, it’s not going to happen!
    We learn negativity and we can un-learn it and begin to see what we DO want rather than sticking with seeing what we DON’T want.
    good luck’
