Active Visualization Can Change Your Life

Best Meditation Videos has page by the same name as this post, Active Visualization Can Change Your Life. This is not a coincidence. I found an article titled, “Active Visualization Can Dramatically Improve Your Future,” which is the subject of the article

I see very little semantic difference between these two titles, so we must be covering the same ground.

The Awakened OneThe author, Dennis Francis, begins his article with a quote from the Buddha.

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought.”

Another quote from the Buddha appears later on in the text:

“We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.”

You must know by now that I love the teachings of the Buddha!

Back to the article!

Active Visualization Can Change Your Life

Francis states something that I find quite similar to my way of thinking about Active Visualization. He says,

Real change requires that our self-image adapts to our new way of seeing an understanding our situation. This is why it is so important to involve our imagination when focusing on our goals. Being able to change your self-image or to change your beliefs is an important part of growing and developing as a human being. This is something we have done consciously or unconsciously from the time we were children. Concentration and visualization is the key reprogramming the subconscious, which leads to reprogramming our beliefs.

This statement is all about your mindset. If you want to change your life, you must change yourself. If you want to change yourself, change your thoughts.

The Active Visualization process is outlined towards the end of the article:

Here are the steps needed for active visualization: Find a comfortable chair to relax and read your prepared statement outlining your goal in the present tense. Then close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Begin to daydream about that moment where you have achieved your goal; build on the scene as if you were the director of the movie or the artist creating the work of art. Begin to involve your senses so that you can experience the event as fully as possible. If your mind wanders, just catch yourself and return to where you left off. Some people even have their own theme song or soundtrack that brings them to a place of excitement or confidence.

This process comes close to what you will find if your order Active Visualization. The method employed in the audio recording involves seven stages and take about 1/2 an hour. Each stage develops a deepening state of relaxation so that distractions are a minimum.

I actually like the idea of reading a prepared statement outlining your goals and I may add this to the instructions.

So What Do You Think About Active Visualization?
