in Visualization - Law of Attraction

Visualize the perfect outcome of every situation in life and you will truly become unstoppable achieving any and every goal you set for your life. Visualization is more than just theory, much more!

Everything we create in our lives is a direct result of the pictures that we visualize in our dreams and our imagination.

Learning to harness this power of visualization can bring us more success and happiness in life than anything else.

I would ask that you take the time to read through this entire article because I have answered or addressed any questions or doubts you may have concerning your ability to visualize and actualize your present and future life.

I had an eight-hour ride in an ambulance to record all my thoughts and feelings concerning this very important part of my life and I want nothing more than to share this with you because I feel it could be life changing for many of you. So let’s begin.

Visualize, Affirm, Actualize, Imagine, Believe And Achieve!

How To Visualize
When we visualize we bring our future goals, dreams and desires into the present and we can play them out vividly as though we have already accomplished them with great success or failed miserably.

The choice is ours!

If you visualize with belief and then you act with the confidence of knowing you cannot fail you will reach levels of success greater than you had first imagined.

By engaging your creative imagination with such conviction and belief you are activating the powers of the subconscious mind.

The subconscious mind absorbs and stores every bit of information you have collected throughout your life and it does not judge, it accepts it all as being the facts.

Your parents, teachers, friends and yourself have programmed your mind all throughout your life and you have conditioned your subconscious mind for good or for bad.

If you have continually put yourself down your confidence and self-esteem have paid the price over the years and this has determined your current levels of success.

Visualize Failure You Will Fail, Visualize Success, With Confidence, You Will Succeed!

You can use the power of visualization to clear out all the old debris removing all the subconscious obstacles that have been blocking the pathways to your goals.

The vision of our future resides within the realms of our dreams and imagination.

If we want to create a better future we must first create better visions of our future and this is achieved within our dreams and imagination.

It has been said that imagination is more important than education especially once you reach your adult years (when I return home I will find the quote : )

I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.

Albert Einstein

As children our imagination was always at work and it was positive and exciting.

As children we had great dreams fueled with excitement and belief. We were excited and adventurous, confident and curious.

We had wonderful imaginations and we would subconsciously visualize and act out our dreams. We wanted to be firemen, policemen, astronauts and more and we played the role with our friends or family.

Our imagination took us to places around the world, it took us to the moon it took us to Mars, nothing was out of reach. We could see it, believe it and visualize it as if it were so.

As children, with our vivid imagination we could do, have or be anything but sadly as we grew older our imagination our dreams and desires turned into worry, fears and self-doubt.

Our parents, teachers and other adults would say things to us like; “Grow up, act your age, quit playing those silly games,” and sure enough we lost our ability to imagine and visualize our childhood dreams.

If you have children don’t let this happen to them, encourage and nurture their imagination and dreams. If anything teach them how to visualize or allow them to teach you.

Don’t allow yourself or anyone else to negatively program their subconscious mind. Never inhibit their curiosity, nurture it.

When your child is constantly asking you questions like; What’s this Mom? Hey Dad why does the moon move across the sky? What’s this do? What’s that do? What’s this for? Why do we have two legs and not four? You get the idea!

Don’t let these questions become an irritant, instead you should encourage them and use everyone as a teaching moment in your child’s life.

You can learn a lot from your child’s imagination so don’t ever discourage it, use it for moments of bonding with your child or your nephew, niece or a child in the neighborhood.

Sit at the foot of their bed with them or crawl inside of a tent they made of their bed sheets, close your eyes and visualize being a child again.

Moments like this will encourage and expand your child’s curiosity, you are helping to program their subconscious mind with powerfully positive visualizations.

As your child’s imagination expands so does their ability to visualize.

Logic Will Get You From A To Z But Your Imagination Will Get You Everywhere.

Albert Einstein

As I said in the beginning of this article when we visualize we bring our future goals, dreams and desires into the present and we can play them out vividly as though we have already accomplished them with great success.

If you’re not a parent do this with a younger sister or brother or another child in the neighborhood this is the best thing you can do for a child and for yourself.

I apologize I went a little off track there for a moment I did not intend for this article to become a parenting lesson.

Visualize Use Your Creative Imagination Just As You Did As A Child!

You can use the power of visualization to ignite your childlike imagination and you can create fantastic and exciting dreams.

If you visualize these new dreams everyday with positive feelings of belief you can easily turn those dreams into your reality.

Practice bringing your future into your present. Fill your dreams with visions of you achieving your most desired goals.

Be child like with your imagination and visualize the things you want most out of life. See them in your mind’s eye as if they were so.

Believe that all things are possible and hold nothing back!

Go For The Gold!

If you want to be rich you can be rich, it is not as difficult as most believe actually it is only difficult because that is what they believe.

If you can visualize yourself as being rich then there is nothing that can stop you from becoming rich except for you.

Everything has a degree of science to it and visualization is the science course they fail to teach us in school but for those who learn this on their own open a whole new world of possibilities.

You allowed your imagination and all those dreams you use to visualize as a child to die off once, promise yourself that you will never allow that to happen again.

Reignite Your Childhood Imagination And Visualize Your Future As You Wish It To Be!

If you are having a bad day it is up to you to recognize this and to take the positive actions to turn it around.

You Can Do This, I Know You Can!

I’ve gone through brain surgeries time after time and the doctors ALWAYS try to bring me down with their pathetic negative attitudes.

I say the hell with them, they have a job to do and I have a job to do and if we both do our jobs I will always come out on top.

I’m not kidding you, I will not accept their negative attitudes and I tell them straight out that I don’t want to hear it.

It’s their job to perform the surgeries and it’s my job to visualize the outcome.

It’s my job to condition my mind for survival.

It’s my job to imagine my future and to believe in everything I believe in with 100% conviction.

I’m telling you right now, that you control your future and no one else.

You have to visualize exactly what you want out of life and then go after it like there is no possible chance of failure.

Everyday of your life should be treasured and not wasted in anger, worry, fear or self-doubt.

If you are healthy you should have no complaints.

If you waste your days with anger, fear, worry, doubt or self-pity of any type it is an insult to those that face real struggles on a daily basis.

You should visualize the perfect future everyday of your life and you should back those visualizations with positive affirmations all throughout the day.

If you take on this practice from this day forward I guarantee you will change everything about your life.

Even if you do happen to struggle with health issues you still should have no complaints because you still have the ability to improve your life.

You Must Visualize And Affirm What You Want For Your Life With Conviction And Belief!

Now I’m certainly not complaining so please don’t think that for a moment but I get dozens of emails every week from readers telling me that visualization does not work for them.

I am answering all of those emails, past, present and future Right Now, Right Here!

You have the ability to visualize, we all do and that is an indisputable fact.

I have proven this to you in past articles but I will do it again.

Right now at this moment I want you to continue to read this article but I do not want you to picture what a large Pink Elephant would look like standing in your kitchen!

Go on, keep reading but DO NOT get a mental image of that Pink Elephant.

Need I say anymore??

You know, right now that you can visualize what that Pink Elephant looks like and now you can use that as a starting point.

Visualization does take practice, for some it comes really easy but for others they may have to work at it a little harder and a little longer.

One of the most important elements to successfully visualize a desired outcome in your life is your belief.

If you don’t believe in your ability to visualize the achievement of your goals you will fail every time.

Please I don’t want any of my readers, especially those who have sent me emails to take this personally, I am only pointing this out so that you can clearly see where you might be going wrong.

When I read the questions in the emails telling me that you cannot visualize or that you have tried but it’s not working you are answering your own question.

You have to BELIEVE in the process at ALL times, if it’s taking longer than you expected then you have to work harder and you have to stick to it.

Every time you say to yourself that you just cannot visualize you are setting yourself up for failure and any progress you have made is being wasted.

If you are not seeing results that just means that you have to pick up the pace.

Keep a journal and use it everyday. At the end of the day you should record in your journal exactly how your day went.

Ask yourself these questions and answer them honestly because if you don’t you are only hurting yourself.

  • Did I visualize my goals throughout the day and if so, how much and how often?
  • Did I back my visualizations with positive affirmations and if so, how much and how often?
  • Did I visualize with excitement and did I visualize with belief and conviction and if so, how much and how often?
  • Did I ignite my creative imagination and if so, how much and how often?
  • Did I spend any part of my day stuck in a rut of negativity and if so, how much or how long?
  • Did I catch myself being caught up in worrisome thoughts and if so, did I pull myself out and immediately begin to visualize and affirm positive events?

As I said it does come harder to some than it does for others but the thing to remember is that if you give up before it takes hold you have lost all the hard work you have put in.

You cannot stop believing in the process.

If you keep a journal like I recommend and you ask and answer those very questions everyday of your life without fail I can guarantee that you will see positive changes in your life.

Answering those questions and keeping a journal helps you to become more aware of your thoughts and feelings throughout all the days of your life.

It’s hard to solve a problem that you cannot see or that you are not “aware” of.

You must begin to use your creative imagination to visualize your future bringing it to the present and seeing it as you have planned it with your goals and reinforce it all with positive affirmations.

That Right There Is A Recipe For Success And Happiness!

That is the answer to every question anyone could have about how to use the power of visualization.

People have been using visualization for thousands of years.

Think about that, there are records dating back thousands of years with the most successful people throughout history attributing their success to their ability to visualize.

Trust me the visualization came before the success.

Visualize, Positively Affirm, Believe With Conviction And You Cannot Fail!

My own family members disregard the power of visualization despite the fact that I have proven my doctors wrong for the past 14+ years.

I just made it through another serious complication 5 days ago.

As many of you know I was scheduled for a major brain surgery but as they began the procedure I had an AVM (arterial vascular malformation) rupture which caused a serious brain bleed, they had to abort the first procedure and work on repairing the artery.

I slipped into a coma for four days and they prepared my wife for the worst.

However my wife refused to accept the doctor’s negative diagnosis and after just four days, apparently with no positive signs that I would recover I woke up to my wife’s beautiful smile.

I’m not kidding you when I say that I prepare my mind everyday of my life.

I visualize waking up after every surgery and seeing my wife’s smiling face looking over me.

I never question or doubt the power of my visualizations or affirmations and neither should you.

Sorry to go off on a tangent again about my health issues. It’s just such a powerful testimonial to the effectiveness of visualization and affirmations.

I am here today writing this article because I visualize my future everyday of my life. I have no doubts in my mind about this and I want to share it with you because I believe it will help, it has to help.

I feel like this is my mission, I have no anger over my situation because I believe that I can help others to see that the challenges we face in life really can make us stronger.

I’m going to bring this to a close but before I do I just want to impress upon you how vital it is to believe in your own personal power.

To visualize your future to always believe and to never lose faith because this is a power that we ALL possess.

Everyday fire up that imagination, get excited just as you did when you were a child, visualize your dreams everyday all day, back those visualizations with positive affirmations and never stop believing because you can, have, be or do anything you want in this life.

Afterthoughts Added After Publishing The Article.

In a few days I will have a more appropriate eBook attached to this article for you to download for free. I have been working on a few short eBooks but with all the interruptions I have yet to finish those.

However I will concentrate on completing the eBook that goes into more detail about the power of visualization and methods to help you learn how to visualize your goals.

In my heart I believe that this article is the perfect guide for not just teaching you how to visualize but also showing you just how powerful the practice of visualization really is.

I believe that everything happens for a reason whether we think it is good or bad I still believe it all has a purpose.

My illness has opened this whole new avenue allowing me to reach out and share my story and my experiences so that I can help to inspire and motivate others into living a better life.

I cannot explain many of the things that happen to me and writing this particular article is one of those unexplainable events.

I had no intention to write this article and certainly not while I was being transported in an ambulance but as I stated earlier I had an overwhelming feeling sweep through me which compelled me to begin to speak into my hand recorder.

I do visualize all throughout my days and visualization has always played a huge role in my life so I have to believe there is a reason for why I felt so compelled to write this article at this point in my life.

I honestly feel that this is the most thorough article I could write for teaching one how to visualize as well as explaining just how important it is to practice this everyday of your life.

I sincerely hope that many of you find this be to helpful in one way or another and if you do Please Share it with your friends and family, Tweet it, post it to Facebook, Pin it (which I don’t even know much about yet : ) just share it in any way that you can. Thank You So Much!

Hi Joy,

What a perfect name!! If you are ever feeling a bit down all you have to do is repeat your own name a few times and I guarantee it will bring a smile to your face :)

Believing is always the key to success no matter what the situation. If you struggle with self-doubt and worry then you can always focus your affirmations on overcoming those two success killers. One of the biggest reasons people fail at anything is a lack of faith.

We live in a world where most people just expect everything to fall into place without having to put in any effort and then when things don’t turn out so well they are the first ones to say “I knew it wouldn’t work” or something to that degree.

It’s like the man who sits in front of the stove and says “Give me heat” before putting in any wood. If we want good things to happen to us we must first put in the wood. (I think it might have been Earl Nightingale that said that).

I am really happy that the article helped you to see what you were missing.

Best Wishes!

Howard G. Platt 111 13 June 13, 2012
