Those who are new to visualization will always ask, “Why do I need to visualize? It’s so hard!”

As much as I say that it may be difficult at first, especially if their minds are cluttered with conflicting thoughts, many give up in the end and dismiss visualization as an ineffective form of “hocus pocus” when they see their desires not being manifested into reality.

Visualization, however, is a very important step if you are to materialize into reality your most fervent desires. In fact, this is the primary tool or technique that I use for creating what I want.

Let us take a look at the reasons for visualizing your desire:

Visualization enables clarity of the mind

The most common problem that people have with visualization is that they are unable to clear their minds because of the clutter of their thoughts.

By visualizing your desire, you will be cutting through the cloud of all these unnecessary thoughts, leaving just a clear picture of what you want to bring into the Physical Plane.

Think of your mind as a TV set with dials to clear the picture. Imagine yourself turning those dials until you have your desire in crystal clarity.

Visualization hones the focus of your will power

With your desire clear inside your mind, visualization moves to sharpen the focus of your will power upon what you want to bring to reality.

To succeed in this, you need to have fixed and workable goals that you can imagine yourself accomplishing with little to no effort. This will help to focus your intent on achieving your desire.

Such a sharp focus will also keep your mind trained on your desire/goal. In doing so, you will not be easily distracted by what is happening in your surroundings.

Your brain does not distinguish between reality and the visualized

Research in neurology revealed that performing a particular act in reality AND imagining yourself doing this same action activates the same areas of the brain.

If you imagine yourself doing the same thing over and over, the brain exhibits neuroplasticity (wherein actual physical changes take place within the brain, including the formation of new neuronal connections between brain cells).

Basically speaking, the brain perceives what you visualize as reality, if you imagine what you desire frequently.

For example, if you visualize melting the excess weight from your body, you will achieve your desired weight.

Visualization provides health benefits

Poor health can be aggravated by a disturbed mental state, such as depression.

By using visualization to come up with images of good health and activity, it not only helps in dispelling the bad emotions that come with sickness and disease; it also promotes actual healing, the growth of new cells, and the detoxification of wastes and toxins from the body.

Visualization gives you a feeling of empowerment

When you visualize, you not only imagine your desired outcome; you also imagine the step that you will take to achieve your desire. This will give you a feeling of empowerment which you have not been experiencing in your daily life.

If you repeat this imagery frequently on a daily basis, it will allow you to think creatively so you can come up with the best solutions, give you the courage to try harder, and overall provide you with a positive outlook.

Believing in Visualization Allows for Better Results

The reason why visualization doesn’t produce results for most people is they don’t believe it does and will work.

Remember that visualization is a mental process that is a part of you. If you don’t believe that you can perform this process, you will not derive any benefits from it. In contrast, if you not only believe in visualization but also trust in its potential results, you will get the desired results and, because your power is amplified, you stand to receive more than what you want.

Don’t give up on visualization. While it may take constant practice and patience, once you have mastered this mind technique, you will be able to reap your desired rewards.
