What is creative visualization?

Personal Development blog

How many times you had a dream during a night sleep (or even a daydream) in which your life was perfect? Everything seems to be like you wanted, you felt relaxed, in control and powerful. It felt easy, in flow, how it supposed to be. It was only a dream, you would say… But it doesn’t need to be! What if you could harness the power of your mind and create this perfect life of your dreams?! This is what creative visualization is about. Using your imagination and involving all your senses, you can create in your mind a perfect image of whatever you desire and bring it to your life.

How does it work

Albert Einstein said “Everything is energy and that’s all there is. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”

Quantum Physics teaches us today that everything is energy. Different energies vibrate at different frequencies. Fear, doubt or other negative feelings will have other frequency than love, gratitude or joy. Think about it for a moment. You know the saying “like attracts like”. Knowing that we attract what we focus on, and understanding that our thoughts are energy, we should make sure that the energy we surround ourselves with is what we want to manifest in our life. If we think happy thought, focus on positives, imagine great outcomes from our goals- than we should attract it to us. The frequency of our vibration should attract emotions and physical manifestations of things that vibrate at the same frequency.

The best explanation I could find for it was from a great book by bestselling author and pioneer in personal development movement Shakti Gawain. The book is called “Creative Visualization: Use the Power of Your Imagination to Create What You Want in Your Life “ (check my review about the book here) and it is one of my very top personal growth books.

“The scientific world is beginning to discover what metaphysical and spiritual teachers have known for centuries. Our physical universe is not really composed of any “matter” at all; its basic component is kind of force or essence that we call energy.

Things appear to be solid and separate from one another on the level at which our physical senses normally perceive them. On finer level, however, atomic and subatomic levels, seemingly solid matter is seen as smaller and smaller particles within particles, which eventually turn out to be just pure energy.

Physically, we are all energy and everything within and around us is made up of energy. We are all part of one great energy field. Things that we perceive to be solid and separate are in reality just various forms of our essential energy, which is common to all. We are all one, even in literal, physical sense.

The energy is vibrating at different qualities, from finer to denser. Thought is a relatively fine, light form of energy and therefore very quick and easy to change. Matter is relatively dense, compact energy, and therefore slower to move and change. Within matter there is great variation as well. Living flesh is relatively fine, changes quickly, and is easily affected by many things. A rock is a much denser form, slower to change, and more difficult to affect. Yet even rock is eventually changed and affected by the fine, light energy of water, for example. All forms of energy are interrelated and can affect one another.

One law of energy is this: Energy of certain quality or vibration tends to attract energy of similar quality and vibration. Thoughts and feelings have their own magnetic energy that attracts energy of a similar nature.”

How to use creative visualization

Creative visualization is a great mental technique that can be utilized  in many  situations. You can use it during meditation and goals planning. Imagine it as a plan that architects draw before the real building is created. Everything is first created in our mind, and only then the mental picture can be transformed into the reality.

The trick of really good creative visualization session is to engage all your senses in the experience. The more detail you can imagine to see, hear, feel, smell, taste… in your mind, the more aligned you become with the vision and your energy become vibrating on the same level as the desired goal.

Here are some good tips from Vishen Lakhiani- author of “The Code of the Extraordinary Mind”, entrepreneur, speaker and founder of Mindvalley.
