|Remember the saying ...
"A picture is worth a thousand words"
Then add to this ...
"What you think is your reality .... What you
think you are."
These two concepts help to explain the art of
Visualization and Guided Imagery.
Visualization and Guided Imagery is a
technique that assists you in creating whatever you want
in your life. Think of it as consciously sending a
picture or image to your subconscious mind and allowing
this mind to believe what it sees to be real. The
subconscious mind does not discriminate between real or
imagined images. It simply sees and processes what it is
given and then without even a question, your
subconscious mind begins creating what it sees "WHEN YOU
BELIEVE IT WITHOUT A DOUBT."
READ THESE WORDS AGAIN ...
"WHEN YOU BELIEVE IT WITHOUT A DOUBT"
THAT IS THE KEY TO VISUALIZATION AND GUIDED IMAGERY
As you imagine visualizing yourself as
thriving, healthy, focused and successful, this then is
the reality your subconscious mind creates. When done
properly for a thirty day period, your reality becomes
what you think.
Why "30" days?
Theory of The Mind teaches that when
you engage in any thought process and think it as for
real for 21-30 days, the thought is "slam dunked" into
your subconscious mind and becomes you. Many of our most
successful athletes, politicians, actresses/actors,
teachers, etc., understand and utilize the powers of
their mind to affect change and move towards that which
makes them the BEST they can be. They create a movie of
success in their minds before actually engaging in their
activity. They always see their success ahead of time.
They also know that any action or thought that is
engaged in for more than 21-30 days becomes automatic
IT IS THAT SIMPLE!
Do not doubt this theory. It is real. It is right. It
is timely to understand.
You cannot afford to pass on understanding this simple,
Theory of the Mind.
Remember your subconscious mind
receives a number of messages from you every second of
your day ... both awake and asleep. The subconscious
mind is always awake 24/7. Though your conscious mind
will sleep, your subconscious mind is your GATEKEEPER.
Use it wisely. It creates your reality based on the
messages you think, say and do.
Keep one thought in mind. In order to
get the most out of visualization, all your other
messages to your subconscious mind have to be in
agreement with what you visualize - otherwise you'll
never create the things that you visualize no matter how
hard you try. That can be easy to control in that, from
this point forward you will only think positive, loving,
affirming, supportive and respectful words to yourself
and others. You will only engage in those activities
that are healthy, productive, energizing and successful
for you and others. It is not just about visualization
... It is about a whole new way of BEING
A TEAM PLAYER WITH YOURSELF ... A TEAM PLAYER WITH
Think of it this way. You're in a row
competition and there are a number of people rowing this
boat with you. You tell one of them to row in a certain
way so that you go in a certain direction. But if all
the other people rowing with you are going in the
opposite direction - that one person rowing will have
little or no impact. The boat will never go the way you
want. In order to get the most out of visualization you
need make sure that all your thoughts and actions
support the direction you want to go. When you do, you
reach your destination sooner. See yourself cutting
through the waves and headed straight for what you want.
See yourself in the "WRITE FRAME OF MIND", setting your
intentions for your destination then watch what happens.
Why "Write" frame of mind you may wonder? Because you
can "write" your own life script. Write it ... Image it
... Believe it ... Be it! "Be what you want be ... Want
to be what you truly are."
Think about what Emile Coué, 19th century
French professor said.
"We possess within us a marvelous force of incalculable
which gives us mastery over ourselves. A person's free
will always yields to the imagination. This is an
absolute rule to which there is no exception."
Since the imagination resides in the subconscious mind,
and it is susceptible to visual and imaged suggestions,
you can see how planting carefully worded suggestions
strategically could greatly influence your will.
