We all have the power to influence our lives. When we remember this ability, we can increase personal happiness and fulfillment. The following is an exercise that I have successfully used for many years. This mental exercise is designed to heighten your ability to construct the reality you want to live.
There is no one way to use creative visualization. Some techniques even involve various affirmations or mental scripts to narrate the imagery. The main idea is to tap into your creative capacity to make vivid images in your mind.
You do this all the time anyway. Every time you see, hear, touch, taste, or smell a part of your world, you are making an internal representation of what you believe it to be. You do it with the self-fulfilling prophesies conjured by your negative self-talk. Now, instead, start imagining things that actually want to have happen.
If you want to create something new in your life, you can direct your energies toward an experience that is in better alignment with your ideals. You may want to improve your performance in some areas of your life, or you might dream of experiencing something entirely new to you. Many people swear by the practice of creative visualization, so try it out. The ability to generate new realities mentally may ultimately be one of the most valuable skills you can learn.
