Power of Visualization The Imagination And Mental Imagery

by Howard Platt

on August 26, 2011

in Visualization - Law of Attraction

The Power of Visualization can change your life in ways you can only imagine and that is where is all begins, with your imagination.

People tend to associate the word imagination with children and they fail to see the possibilities and realities that can emerge from their own imagination.

Power of Visualization

Power of Visualization The Minds Eye!

The imagination is what fuels the power of visualization and having a child like imagination can open a whole new world of possibilities.

Visualization is the conscious creation of desired outcomes in your life.

The word conscious distinguishes the difference between dreams and visualizations.

Dreams only occur while you are sleeping where as visualizations occur while you are conscious.

I have personally been using the power of visualization to help myself recover from my disabilities.

I practice my visualizations every night before I fade off to sleep and then once again when I first wake up in the morning.

I lost my ability speak completely when my larynx collapsed damaging my vocal cords.

The doctors told my wife and I that I would never speak again but after 2 years of silence I have taught myself how to speak, it’s rather difficult but I can speak.

I used the power of visualization to overcome that disability as well as some others. If you work at it you will be able to put the power of visualization to work in your own life.

Power of Visualization You Have The Control

Visualization is sensing and seeing with your inner mental eye and although you may not realize it you have used your power of visualization throughout your life.

If you think for a moment that you do not hold the power to visualize I can prove you wrong with simple statement. Are you ready?

Okay now I don’t want you to think of a large Pink Elephant.

I would bet you anything that you are having a hard time trying not to think of or envision that large pink elephant.

I realize it may seem like a stupid exercise but I wanted to show you that you do have the capability to visualize.

Now what you want to do is harness your powers of visualization to keep your mind focused upon that which you want most out of life.

A thought pictured transferred into action is the basis of all visualizations. A visualization should include all five senses and this requires mental focus and imagery.

What ever your desired outcome may be you need to mentally focus upon the successful completion or attainment of your desire.

You need to see it, taste it, smell it, feel it and hear it. Now don’t get frustrated in thinking that you cannot visualize with such intensity and don’t you dare stop reading this article.

In order for you to tap into the power of visualization you need to draw upon your personal powers of self-discipline.

One trait that is common among all successful people is that of self-discipline.

Visualization will come natural to some while others must work at it a little harder but the only people that cannot visualize are those that lack the discipline to work at it.

Visualization did not come easy to me, I had to work at it everyday but because I believed in its immense power I never gave up.

If you are not familiar with my personal story and all the challenges I have had to overcome as well as the challenges I must deal with on a daily basis you should take a moment to watch the video on this page: How To Overcome Depression

If not for the power of visualization I would not be sitting here writing this article.

A successful person is one that can tap into the deeper regions of their mind allowing their subconscious mind to go to work on their goals.

Visualize how you want things to be in your life and then act on it. Do you want to be rich? Visualize it! Do you want to learn how to use the power of visualization to achieve your financial goals and dreams?

The Science of Getting Rich is the most powerful and effective program I have yet to review and I could not give this program a higher recommendation. If you really want to learn how to achieve every goal including and especially your financial goals this program is for you.

Power of Visualization

The Power of Visualization Saved My Life!

When I was diagnosed with a fatal brain tumor I was told that I had less than 12 months to live.

I refused to accept that and after pulling myself out of a two week state of depression I went to work on visualizing my recovery.

I spent my days focusing my mind on future events, I made plans that exceeded the 12 month deadline.

My wife and I booked a non-refundable vacation 14 months out and I used that in my visualizations.

I am here today because I believed, I had faith, my mind was not crowded with doubts and fears it was filled with faith and belief!

You have to believe, throw all your doubts out of your mind and replace them with your most desired dreams and aspirations. As a great man once said:

What The Mind Of Man Can Conceive And Believe, It Can Achieve

Napoleon Hill

What ever you believe with feeling becomes your reality. What ever you expect with confidence becomes your own self-fulfilling prophesy.

Ask yourself, what are your belief’s, if they are negative or destructive you must change your belief.

Take a moment to view this short video clip it has a lot to offer and despite its age the messages are universal truths that are responsible for everything you see in this world.

Watch This Short Video About The Power of Visualization

Your thoughts proceed both emotion and action so you must develop the skill to take control of your thoughts.

The quality of your thinking improves the quality of your life or better said is that your outer world becomes a mirror image of your inner world.

You can change the quality of your thoughts and your thoughts can change the quality of your life.

Through The Power of Visualization YOU Can Change Your Life!

As I stated earlier we all possess the power of visualization so if you are filling your mind with negative thoughts and visions you will attract those circumstances into your life.

The power of visualization has helped me to cheat death on a number of occasions throughout the past twelve years so if it can do that for me just think of what it can do for you.

I will expand upon this subject on another day soon but for now why don’t you begin to put the power of visualization to work in your life.

Hi Howard, I have only heard about the power of the mind yesterday in fact. Yesterday I would describe myself as a quite unlucky individual. However today after reading through various blogs and watching your video clip I am going to visualize daily!

Thank you so very much

Hi Howard, i am from Buenos Aires , Argentina . I AM seeing your website for the first time , and i AM willing to beginning with the training. BUT i ve got a problem with visualización , i can t see anything with my minds eye . Probably You know some technique that accelerate the process.Best Wishes , Jorge .

34 Howard Platt February 13, 2012

Hi Jorge,
Sometimes it can be difficult especially if you are just starting out. My best advice is to keep working at it and get used to sitting or laying down in a quiet room where you will not be disturbed and for the first times don’t try to visualize anything specific, just let your mind take you where it wants to go and get used to the process of visualizing what your mind leads you to.

After a while of letting your mind do the work you can then start to focus in on something more specific. I have used this example before but it always proves the point so here I go again. Just to reassure you that you absolutely do have the ability to visualize I want you to try to not picture a large pink elephant, try as hard as you can to not visualize that pink elephant.

OK I bet you could not help but to see that pink elephant in your mind’s eye so this should at least ease your worries about your inability to visualize because now you know that you can so the only thing you need to work on is controlling what you visualize within your mind and that will come with time.

I thank you for visiting my friend!
Best Wishes!
Howard

Dear Xenyth, Never lose faith my friend, think of ways that you can use your experience to help others because that in turn will help you as well. Send me an email directly and I will help you in any way that I can. my email: Howard @ howard-platt.com

Stay strong my friend and grasp onto the fact that you had/have the personal strength to overcome a powerful demon and if you can do that just think of how well you will do with less challenging obstacles.

Get in touch with me!

39 Roshni October 21, 2012

Hello Sir,
Recently I have started practising visualization. I started with small things to test the waters so to speak and over time I have zeroed in on one big goal I want to achieve over the next 6 months (all the small little things worked by the way!). To ensure that I stay on track, I read as many articles on the power of visualization I can(on a daily basis) to reinforce my faith over and over again so I don’t loose hope half way through. This is how I came across your article and was inspired by it.
I have however this question that does nag me from time to time. Does visualization work when the realization of the goal depends on someone else? For example, if I want to go on a vacation to a certain place, but it depends on my husband’s schedule and budget(he isn’t into the visualizing like I am) will my visualizing this goal for both of us work or will it hinder our ultimate goal?
I would very much appreciate it , if you could shed some light on this for me.
Thank you also for this wonderful inspiring article which I am sure has helped many more like me. I do wish you the best of everything life has to offer.

Dear Roshni,

What a terrific question. Unfortunately I cannot answer the question with 100% certainty because visualization is a very personal process although I do believe we all have the power to affect other people through our consciousness meaning our subconscious mind as well.

If you believe in what you desire and you take some positive actions based on your visualizations I would say that anything is possible.

I am so sorry it has taken me this long to reply, as I have mentioned to others I have been in the Albany Medical Center ICU for over 4 months and I am now just getting back to work.

I hope we get a chance to talk in the near future.

God Bless You!
Sincerely,
Howard
