Creative Visualization: A simple technique to achieve goals

27 Sep

Creative Visualization

All things are created twice: first in our minds, and then in reality. Alexander Graham Bell creatively Visualized telephone before he created the masterpiece. Einstein gave the theory of relativity just by Visualizing himself in space and then mentally concluding the result.

Creative visualization is a powerful tool that allows you to communicate the things you desire to your subconscious mind. When would you see the results? I have no definite answer for you but most often, the ‘magic bullet’ to your desires will come least expected.

Imagination is more important than knowledge. If you truly believe on yourself then only you can achieve your dreams. Achieving goals by using Creative Visualization is a scientifically proven method for attaining goals in Life.

Visualization In Sports

Creative Visualization is commonly used today by elite athletes in all sports.

A well-known study on Creative Visualization in sports involved Russian scientists and coaches.  Prior to the 1980 Olympics, they compared four groups of Olympic athletes in terms of their training schedules:

  • Group 1 – 100% physical training;
  • Group 2 – 75% physical training with 25% mental training;
  • Group 3 – 50% physical training with 50% mental training;
  • Group 4 – 25% physical training with 75% mental training.

Group 4, with 75% of their time devoted to mental training, performed the best.  Group performance level fell right in order – as mental training increased, performance increased.  The Soviets had discovered that mental images can act as a prelude to muscular impulses.

There are three basic ingredients for Creative Visualization:

1) Burning desire

2) Faith

3) Certainty

1) Burning Desire

In order to successfully achieve results you must first require burning desire for what you really want. Remind yourself at least 200 times a day what you want to achieve. Write it down, read it aloud and keep clear picture of what you want.

2) Faith

Now this is the part where people confuse and lose hope. If you have faith in what you want then it becomes your reality. You know why some prayers are listened and others are not. It’s just because some people have faith and others don’t. Creative Visualization is also like prayer. It’s just in Visualization you thank GOD in advance for what you want. Have complete faith in what you are asking for and soon you’ll get it.

3) Certainty

Certainty can be defined as perfect knowledge that has total security from error, or; the mental state of being without doubt. Most of the people fail to achieve what they visualize just because they are not certain enough that they will get any results. But trust me if you want any kind of results from Creative Visualization then you must be certain that you will get them.

Creating mental picture

1. Find a comfortable place where you won’t be disturbed before you start. First, sit quietly and make yourself comfortable. Take a few deep breaths to calm yourself down.

2. Once you feel relaxed, close your eyes and picture a screen in your mind’s eye. Project a picture of what you want on the screen.

3. Imagine the picture with as many details as possible. Draw the five senses into your picture. The more senses involved the better. Stay relax throughout the exercise.

Additional Tips To Bear In Mind When Doing Your Creative Visualization Exercise

Tip #1

You have to picture yourself in that screen you project in your mind. Visualize everything in Present tense. Don’t imagine it in future; Visualize it as you have already achieved it.  Involve your 5 senses. What do you see, smell, hear, taste or touch. The more senses you involve, the more vivid message you send to your subconscious mind.

Tip #2

Don’t be shy, be bold when visualizing. What is it that you truly want? Ask for it boldly and let the subconscious mind work on it.

Tip #3

You have to do your visualization exercise on a consistent basis. Set a specific time everyday to engage yourself in this life-transforming exercise.

On the concluding note I just want to request one thing to all the Pakistani’s out there. I know things are not right in Pakistan. But you know what; we can make a difference bit by bit, day by day. Suggesting a simple way in which you can be part of this and change the current situation in Pakistan.

Every night fix a time; let’s say around 11:00 pm. Do some Creative Visualization (just for 10min’s) for Pakistan. Visualize peaceful environment with smiles on every single person. Visualize children in schools and people working happily in office. Creatively visualize how you want things in Pakistan and believe that this all is true.

I know this sounds a bit odd but trust me if you believe and Visualize daily then you’ll be surprised by the results yourself.

    Thanks for coming by my blog! =) This was quite informative really,I never knew how much importance our basic thoughts held.
    Though i agree that creative visualisation is important,what mustn’t be forgotten is the fact that practically carrying out the “said idea” is also extremely important. Nothing can be achieved by dreaming about it daily and not taking action to backup your plan.
    I like the bit you’ve added about Pakistan. While living there I came to realize how much patriotism and love people have for the country despite the failing situations and crap government. But the shame is that most young people are unwilling to do anything to change it,they just lay back and expect a miracle to happen

    As salamualaikum

    first of all I am also a Pakistani and I really like your post and especially what you said at the end. May Allah protect Pakistan from these corrupt leaders. Inshaallah.

    Back to your post: you talked about creative visualization which is a big part of law of attraction. I am sure you heard about it 🙂
    I found out about it just some months ago and it is amazing. You can achieve anything you want.
    Anyways, throughout the journey of knowing this amazing law, I also had many doubts and fears that it might be shirk. But I read many Muslim peoples pages where they proved that law of attraction is even in Islam and in the Quran. The difference is that the kuffar think it is the universe which gives but we should always keep in mind that it’s Allah subhanu wa ta’la who gives.

    I really don’t want to do any mistake, I don’t want Allah to be angry with me because I will use visualization and subliminals ( affirmations which give the subconscious specific suggestions). I hope everyone who says law of attraction is halal is right.

    May Allah bless us all and forgive us for our sins.

    Salam 🙂

      Walakum Asalam.. Law of Attraction is perfectly halaal in Islam… Law of Attraction is basically prayer… a silent prayer and with that prayer there is faith that good will happen… As a Muslim its our faith that Allah does good for us and in Law of Attraction we are just praying to Allah for something good…. having faith in prayer is a sunnah itself so how can it be haram… yes one thing we need to be careful is everything is from Allah subhan o tala so when our prayer gets answered we should thank Allah subhan o tala!
