THE POWER OF VISUALISATION
I began journaling what inspired me and went through many areas of my life: my health and fitness, my emotional well-being, my relationships with my family and friends, my creative life, my financial freedom, my life experiences… and I decided to stick all the sentences and these images of my ideal life on a vision board I could see when I would work at my desk.
Every day, I was diving into the emotional experience of achieving my ideal life. How would I feel when I have reached my purposes? What would my life look life? Who would I have become? What would I do, create, share and give?
Visualizing, or the regular practice of setting an intention and putting together a picture of your goals and purposes with a lot of emotions, has been proved to work by neuroscience.
Top athletes use the visualization technique, also called mental imagery, before a competition and this has helped many of them achieve victories. It helps them to perfectly rehearse and mentally map out their race or their match with winning images in mind.
Research has made tremendous progress in the past 10 years, moving from positive thinking to more advanced neuro-activities and brain-enhancement systems. With virtual reality and neuroscience monitoring brain-wave activities, we’re entering a new era with a huge potential in the field of health and well-being.
The human mind has the potential for designing almost anything it can imagine. If our thoughts are focused on the creation of life-enhancing images, we can witness real breakthroughs.
When Einstein said “Imagination is more important than knowledge”, he was right.
