Many people who learn about the Law of Attraction are aware that visualizing can be very helpful in cultivating your dreams. That being said, people often get frustrated when their visualizations “don’t work.”
So with that being said, here are my top visualizing tips to help. And yes, I have titled them as brilliant-I am willing to toot my own horn on these suggestions. I hope you find them tremendously useful!
My 4 Favorite Visualizing Tips:
#1. Visualization should be fun. PERIOD.
Conscious creators often get themselves all tied up in a knot with a list of “manifestation to-dos.” Sometimes people drive themselves crazy trying to use all of the right processes in the right steps.
Here’s the thing-any process you use will only really be helpful to you if it is FUN. If it feels like work or a chore, please abandon the visualizing, at least for the time being.
Approach your visualizing as you would any kind of fun game or diversion. It should be entertaining and enjoyable, as this helps you to cultivate the appropriate vibration of the excitement of having what you want. If you’re frustrated or annoyed, the visualization isn’t helping.
#2. Experiment with your senses.
Everyone visualizes in a number of different ways. Some people visualize in pictures, others in colors, feelings or ideas. There is no one “correct” method of visualization, so if trying to force a mental picture isn’t working, try something else!
Here are a few suggestions:
- Focus on images. When you achieve your goal, imagine what it will look like. For instance, if you are wanting to win a race, try to imagine the finish line, the people running around you, the time clock, what the weather looks like.
- Focus on sounds. Another suggestion would be to focus on the sounds. So again, if you are wanting to win a a race, imagine the cheers from the crowd, the pounding of your feet on the pavement, and the beating of your heart in your chest.
- Try the other senses. Can you focus on taste, smell or your sense of touch as they relate to your goal?
To try out a “sense-based” visualization, check out this one I created below for some practice:
#3. Inspired daydreaming…
Again, sometimes people get very hung up on visualizing as if it is a chore. If visualizing has started to feel like a chore, I would highly recommend inspired daydreaming as you primary visualizing strategy.
In other words, instead of forcing yourself to visualize at a set time, wait for the right time to come to you!
Sometimes when I am driving, or doing something routine or easy, a thought about one of my dreams comes to me.
If I’m feeling good, I take that as a sign that it’s time to do some inspired daydreaming on my goal. Instead of directing my mind onto “more important matters” I let my mind linger on the dream and allow myself to visualize in a fun and freeing manner.
In that moment, I allow myself to engage in the visualization. The nice thing about “inspired daydreaming” is that it taps you into the right time and the right frame of mind to dream about what you want.
#4. Visualize BIGGER!
Another fun thing you can do in your visualization is to try to “top” your dream as you have thus far created it.
In other words, if you’ve been visualizing winning the race, why not top it with a personal record time? Or perhaps you’ve been dreaming about a promotion, why not top it with a better office too?
The nice thing about stretching your goals in your visualizing is it makes your original goal feel even more achievable.
Here’s why this can be helpful.
Let’s say that I am a long jumper, and it has been my goal to jump 7 feet. If I only visualize the 7 feet, that 7 feet can easily become my barrier. I will subconsciously start to see that 7 feet as the best I’ll ever do.
However, if I dream bigger and start visualizing a 9 foot jump, I will be subconsciously making the 7 foot jump much easier on myself. When it comes time to actually jump, my mind will work as if I am aiming for 9 instead of 7-making it much more likely I will hit my original goal.
