We don’t necessarily get what we want in our life and as a result of this, we end up getting stressed. We need to understand that when we give our best to achieve what we desire that things really start to unfold in the direction we want them to.
How Visualization is Helpful
Most of the people have the habit of imagining what they want or the outcome they want to have happen. Oftentimes, this can be counterproductive when you focus on negative outcomes. For example, if we are having problems with our colleagues at work, and we focus on the negative outcome. By focusing your energy on the negative outcome you are always looking for the negative.
I believe the reverse to be true. If you spend your time focusing and visualizing on the positive, then you will affect a positive outcome in your life. In my seminars I have often said, “What you think about, you bring about.” Here are some strategies to help you with your positive visualizations.
How to Visualize:
First, make yourself comfortable. You don’t have to be in a dark room but it is good to find a space with little distractions. Take slow and deep breaths and you will find yourself relaxed soon. Just keep your eyes closed and start visualizing the event that is causing you stress.
Picture in your mind the possible outcomes for this stressful event. It is ok to spend some time thinking about many outcomes. Once you have settled in on the outcome that you truly desire, FOCUS ON THE RESULTS and leave out the details. Think about how you are going to feel when it comes to be. Engage all of your senses, and visualize what you want to experience for yourself: peace, balance, improved relationships, increased accomplishments, etc. Once you have a clear picture of the outcome you desire you should just take a few moments to relax and become present again to now.
Again, picture or imagine it, as if is already exist. The key is to practice experiencing a positive emotion surrounding the outcome of your intentions. Your emotions set forth your positive (or negative) intentions for what you desire or wish for.
