IMPROVE HOW YOU MAY FEEL AND PERFORM THROUGH PROPER VISUAL IMAGERY TECHNIQUES
When you look around, there is nothing made by Humans that did not first exist as an image in someone’s mind. To create something without first imagining it, is impossible. Visual imagery has been used for a long time to enable clients to enhance skill-based activities, create desired emotional states, and achieve life goals. Being able to do something in your head, greatly increase your chances of being able to do it in real life.
Further, simulation can improve your motivation and increase your belief in your ability to achieve a goal.
Visualisation is therefore the practice of affecting the outside world by changing your thoughts and using imagination to experience new behaviours and new events. By creating detailed schemas of what you want, over and over again and by using all senses to recreate these, new patterns for a change in behaviours are laid down in the brain as templates.
Using the mind and your imagination, you can see the potential for new events and new behaviours in your life. Using positive thinking and these new learnings to see things and situations differently through creating a multi-sensory experience in your mind, these new, helpful and resourceful behaviours will become positive habits.
Using the Power of Creative Visualisation opens up opportunities to create positive outcomes. Picturing positive outcomes help you create this reality in your life.
To appreciate the power of your mind, imagine a plateful of lemons, cut one in half and then see what happens – you will probably be beginning to salivate. Similarly, imagine yourself running up a series of stairs and feel the effect that this has on your breathing and your heart-rate. The Power of Imagination!
Your Chosen Destination
If you don’t feel experienced in visualisation then look at what is familiar to you. Think about what you had for lunch? Think about the colour of your front door? Who was your favourite teacher? What was your first pet? Where did you go for your last holiday. Start in those familiar places and relive the experience. That is Visualisation!
In the film ‘South Pacific’ from 1958, there was a song called ‘Happy Talk’, and the lyrics ran:
Talk about things you'd like to do.
You got to have a dream,
If you don't have a dream,
How you gonna have a dream come true?
Unless you have a Dream, or a Destination, how will you find it and get there? Even worse, if you are unaware of what you want, and where you want to be, then you may well miss it entirely and carry on blithely unaware of your misfortune. How sad would that be?
To visualise is to form a picture in your mind. Whether it is in your unconsciousness, or your imagination, or maybe your deepest desires, to see your life unfold within your inner eye is the first step to your personal success and fulfilment.
“If my mind can conceive it and my heart can believe it – then I can achieve it” - Muhammad Ali
“Anything you can imagine, you can create.” - Oprah Winfrey
"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For while knowledge defines all we currently know and understand, imagination points to all we might yet discover and create" - Albert Einstein
And perhaps the most powerful affirmation ever uttered: 'I am the greatest.' - Muhammad Ali
Brain Scans and Monitoring
Brain studies reveal that thoughts produce the same mental instructions as actions. Mental imagery impacts many cognitive processes in the brain: motor control, attention, perception, planning, and memory. The brain is getting trained for actual performance during visualisation. Mental practices may enhance motivation, increase confidence and self-efficacy, improve motor performance, prime your brain for success, and increase states of flow—all relevant to achieving your best life!
Your Vision For YOUR Future
So work out what it you actually seek. A highly specific goal. What is it YOU want, or seek. Perhaps work related. Or relationship orientated. Or maybe even more Spiritual.
Visualisation is the practice of affecting the outside world by changing your thoughts and using imagination to experience new behaviours and new events. By creating detailed templates of what you want, over and over again and by using all senses to recreate these, new patterns for a change in behaviours are laid down in the brain and the mind.
