Harness the power of visualisation and create your own reality

Before you can create your own reality and your own new life, you must first have a clear vision of what it is that you want to achieve. Remember, you cannot achieve the life you really want if you do not know what that life is. You need to give yourself permission to dream of and, visualise that life each and every day.  The clearer that vision becomes, the closer you come to creating your own reality.

If you are striving for success and you are feeling burned out and stressed; you need to take a step back and breathe. Return to the vision you have created for your life and visualise yourself as the person you will be once you have achieved all that you are setting out to achieve. Include all of the senses e.g. what you see, what you hear, what you feel etc.

Picture yourself experiencing all of the benefits you expect to experience once you have achieved all of your goals.

The only limit to visualisation is your own imagination.

Why create your own reality?

When you are trying to change your life and make major improvements, you will naturally experience some stress, tension and anxiety. This is due to the fact that you are taking a large step into the unknown. Your brain doesn’t know the difference between reality and imagination so, when you visualise your life as you want it to be; your mind thinks that you have now experienced all of these things so, the tension, stress and anxiety is reduced.

Because your brain cannot distinguish between visualisation and reality; visualisation helps you to build the belief required to pursue and achieve your dreams and goals; no matter how big they might be.

Visualisation is also a form of focus exercise. When you are visualising, you block out the outside world and focus on every small detail of the new reality you are creating. The more you do this, the better you become at focusing. When you return to work, you will find that you are more focused and less easily distracted.

Also, because you have to become more focused when you visualise; you are better able to differentiate between the things you need to do and the things you don’t need to do. You can also differentiate between the things you need to have and the things you don’t need at all. This helps you to declutter and streamline your life so that more of your energy goes into the things that really matter and less of your energy is wasted.

How to create your own reality

Follow these simple steps to create the life of your dreams.

1. Meditate

Meditate for five to fifteen minutes to expand your mind and open your imagination to endless possibilities.

2. Know what you want

What is that you want from your new life? You need to be as clear as possible. The clearer you are about what you want; the easier it becomes for you to make the right decisions, see and seize the right opportunites and develop the motivation to keep pursuing your goal.

3. Hold the vision in your mind

Visualise yourself living the life you want to live. Get all of the detail in there. Include yourself experiencing all of the benefits of the big changes you are making e.g. if you are wanting to lose weight, visualise yourself partaking in activities which require you to be healthy, lean and energetic.

4. Express your gratitude

Believe that it is now certain that you will create this new reality. Give thanks for your new life as if you are already living it. Begin with “I’m so pleased and grateful now that…” and complete the sentence (or paragraph) stating clearly what it is that you wish.

Compose it in the present tense as if you have it today. Each day till your wish comes true, shut your eyes and envisage your desire as if it’s materialising right now.

5. Feel it

Manifest the feelings you will experience when you are living this new life and enjoying it to its fullest. Act, talk and think as though you are already living that life. Summon up all of the positive feelings and hold onto them for as long as possible.

6. Be observant

When you have followed the steps above, you now just need to be alert to the opportunities that come into your life. Whether you believe it is the the Law of Attraction or you just believe that your subconscious mind will seek out opportunities to bridge the gap between the life you desire and the life you are living; opportunities will present themselves. You just need to be ready to act upon them when they come along.
