Mike Dooley, mentioned in my previous article on detachment and surrender recommends visualising want you want for five minutes every day. He suggests that you stop after five minutes, even if you find that your mind has wandered. Abraham Hicks suggests that you can get what you want by visualising for just 68 seconds.
I have two techniques that I use to stop my mind wandering while visualising. The first is that I have written out my favourite visualisation and I read it out to myself. I have also recorded myself reading it and then I can just lie or sit down and listen to it while meditating. I believe that visualisation works because it helps our unconscious mind to focus on what it wants, it sends a message to the universe that this is what we want and it raises our vibration as mentioned in my previous articles.
When you visualise what you want it’s more powerful if you engage all your senses. One of the things I want is to live on the beach and when I visualise it, not only can I see the beach, in my minds eye, I can also hear the waves lapping on the shore and the seagulls crying in the sky above me. I feel my barefeet sinking into the warm sand and the wind blowing my hair. I can smell the seaweed and taste the salty air on my lips.
Visualise what you want for between one and five minutes daily. Remember to keep it positive and focused on what you want rather than what you don’t want. Be sure to enage all five senses to make it more real and powerful. To make it easier, write out your visualisation and/or record it.
