Why Celebrities Are Promoting Creative Visualization As The Next Big Thing
In the past decade or so, there has been much talk about something that is age-old and probably has been used by those in the knowing for thousands of years, but now has a name. That name is “creative visualization”.
You’ve probably heard the term “Creative Visualization” before in the news, or reading a magazine. Several celebrities – especially those into self-help – have touted creative visualization as the next great thing. But you don’t need to be a self-help guru to understand where the theory of creative visualization comes from.
To be clear, visualization isn’t really a technique at all. It’s a process one embarks on that is kind of like meditation in that there is the intent to focus on one thing, which lets the rest fall away. In meditation, the concentration (especially for those that are new to it) is usually on breathing, it’s actually on calming your mind, but the fact of focusing on your breathing has the effect of calming your mind…
Creative visualization centers the mind on a specific reality or outcome. Maybe it is a desired experience you want to have, or a material object you want to attain. Maybe it is a sense of calm, or wellness you’re trying to achieve. These are all common visualization topics.
What Creative Visualization is Not
Living a full, productive, satisfying life is something that we all hope for. If we are parents, we hope our children will attain this as they grow. If we are getting older, and we look back on our lives, it is what we hope to see.
As humans, so far as we know, we only get this one chance to live life the way we want, and experience all we intend by the time it’s over. This is why making the most of our day-to-day lives is so important.
The process of creative visualization can enable us to get so much more out of our days – if we know how to properly harness and utilize that power.
First, it helps to understand what creative visualization is NOT, as it often gets confused with more esoteric techniques.
Creative visualization has no rituals, chants, or magical ceremonies. It is not witchcraft or black magic, nor does it have anything to do with religious practice whatsoever. It is not anything supernatural or un-natural or other-worldly, and it doesn’t involve anything other than your own brain power.
While creative visualization can be considered spiritual, it’s just as likely not to be considered so. That depends on the individual.
Creative visualization is, at its very core, simply making an effort to focus your brain and your thinking on a goal to be achieved. You can think about it any way you want – sitting up, lying down, or any combination thereof. You can have music playing, or visualize in complete silence. Keep your eyes open, or close them. The choice is up to you.
Like meditation, it’s a personal decision how and where you do your visualizing. It’s also your personal decision on what you visualize for – what goal, experience, or physical object would you like to attain?
Creative visualization is nothing more than visualizing intent, really. You’re acknowledging that you intent to take a course of action in order to attain a goal. The visualization part of things often helps you figure out the exact ways to get what you want, and how to go about it.
The power of the mind has been said to be limitless, and utilizing visualization is just one process to use to harness that mind power to get what we want out of life on a day-to-day basis.
So, no matter what your religious beliefs, there is nothing to be wary of when it comes to performing creative visualization. It’s all-natural, and it works!
Using Creative Visualization To Achieve Success
Visualization is also not a new process. Since time immortal, thinking people have utilized visualization to attain that which they desired, but had not yet received or what they wanted to create.
Think, for a moment, about the artist. It doesn’t matter what media is used, the artist must first visualize the outcome – the final product – whether it is a painting, musical masterpiece, or dance choreography. In utilizing creative visualization, one is better able to control the outcome, because that outcome has been focused on to the exclusion of all else.
Creative visualization is a sensory process that involves all the senses together. For instance, if your goal was to learn to ride horses, you would imagine how it would feel to ride your horse at a lope confidently, how the wind would rush past you, and how it would feel to be one with the horse. You would imagine how the horse would smell, of hay and grain, and imagine how the trees and sky would look going past as you rode. You’d hear the thump of the horse’s hooves, and hear him breathing heavily.
It doesn’t matter what outcome you are looking for, by imagining the entire experience, you’re better able to focus on what actual action needs to be taken for that experience to occur.
Creative visualization can also be used to change habits, or help you to attain any goal at all.
- If you are a nail biter, imagine how having long, beautiful nails would look and feel, and how proud you would finally be of your hands.
- If you want to loose weight, visualize yourself having a body you’re happy with, wearing clothes you love, and feeling confident in your new body.
- If you want to make more money, visualize how you’re a valuable support to your company and co-workers so that you’re the obvious choice for everyone with the next promotion and see yourself as the chosen one for an amazing career.
- And if you are self-employed or running a business, see yourself creating more value for your customers so that you can increase your pricing and profit margins, or getting so much more sales and one of the fastest growing businesses in your region or niche…
These are the types of creative visualization that can change lives!
