Visualization does not work the same way for all of us.
Even though we all have five senses, there tend to be people who have a certain “connection” to one of them particularly.
For example, for some people “seeing” things is the way they remember past circumstances.
Images flow smoothly into the mind of this person and the events he/she is trying to remember will come in that form.
For others, the same thing happens with “feeling” things.
Instead of images, these people are accurately tuned into what they emotionally felt at certain moments in the past, re-experiencing those feelings as memories.
Even though I truly believe each person is entirely unique, there are three different “sensory types” of people, if we speak in a broad general style.
Again, depending on the individual, those can mix and take totally personal “forms”, but it is save to say that we can divide three different type of sensory receivers: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic.
These are different types of “channels” by which the human experience can take place and they take place in the form of separate types of perception and memory through its own predominant senses.
As their name imply, each type makes reference to the predominant sense in each person:
Visual – people who “see” things as a way of remembering and learning.
They can learn more through written language and are able to remember it more easily this way.
Everything that is visual (graphics, pictures, movies, illustrations, etc.) presents an easy way of experiencing the things in this world and memories also have this visual attribute.
Auditory – these are the ones who have a better experience and memory at the sound of things.
They tend to talk to themselves more often than the rest of us, sometimes even out loud.
Reading may not be difficult for them, but listening to an audiobook tends to be a better option for consuming and retaining the information learned.
Kinesthetic – the most unusual of all, these are the people more connected with the feelings of experiences, which can be in the majority of times in the form of emotions.
Everything that ignites emotion has a lasting impact on their minds and thus information and memories are linked to the emotions experienced at that moment.
Again, many of us use all three of them, depending on our own nature, but the important thing here is to know that, for example, if you are a person with difficulty in “visualizing” (or “seeing”) things, that doesn’t mean it is something you can’t do.
It may be very well mean that you will need to “visualize” using one of the senses that come more easily to you.
It may be that you can hear things better when imagining your desired results in life.
Or maybe you really connect with the emotions that are felt deep down in your heart.
The main point is to connect with the emotion and/or senses that allow you to make the art of creative visualization work at its best for you.
This is not about imagining every single detail… seeing everything… hearing everything… feeling everything… no, it is about using the tools that make the experience of visualizing as easy and as vivid as possible, something that is entirely different for each person depending on their very own nature.
I want you to do something…
Remember a fantastic experience you’ve had in your life.
A moment where something happened to you, that was absolutely phenomenal.
Try to remember that vividly…
How are you remembering it?
Which senses are you using most?
Maybe the images come easily to you, or maybe it’s more the feelings.
It can even happen that a mix of everything is used.
Or maybe you strongly recognize that one of the sense is the most predominant one.
Take note of that because it’s great feedback for you on how your mind actually works and how you can use the same method to make your visualization efforts be outstanding and with results.
Creative visualization is actually a stimulus which will reach your mind through the use of your own predominant senses and feelings.
It’s also a form of self-suggestion.
A form of communication between you and your subconscious mind to create lasting and impactful results that propel you to the reality you truly desire.
For that to happen, get that deep part of your brain and soul working for you.
Use your predominant senses and emotions, packing the visualization efforts with strong and vivid thoughts, and you are using the technique with immense power to your advantage.
The thing is, our mind is indeed like a fertile garden spot.
If you don’t take care of it, wild weeds and plants will grow all over, creating a massive and visually unpleasant garden that is no fun to be in.
Proactive and daily autosuggestion is the healthy habit of watering flowers, taking out weeds, cutting the grass, and planting beautiful trees, to create a beautiful picture of the garden of our minds.
If a person never took care of her garden, how can she complain about having a wild and ugly one?
It would be ridiculous that she complained, right?
The same happens in our lives.
If we don’t take care of feeding and nurturing the soil of our minds, how can we complain about the undesirable emotions and feelings that happen to us?
Make no mistake, we all carry, 24 hours a day, a little journey companion in our lives: our ego.
If we don’t make an effort of self-control with our minds than we can sure be ready to experience the negative emotions and wilderness that is the very nature of our own ego.
Every effort of applying the art of creative visualization is you talking directly to the Supreme Consciousness to communicate exactly how you want the garden of your life to be.
Do so daily with a spirit of absolute faith and the results are nothing below remarkable.
With the repetition of this effort and procedure, you voluntarily create the mental habits that bring the favorable results you want in your life!
And please don’t get discouraged if you feel you don’t succeed in your first efforts of visualization.
As with everything, time is key to have the results we want.
And so it happens also with visualizing and feeling things.
A dedicated daily effort will, gradually, bring you the ability to do it correctly.
There is no such thing as something for nothing.
We cannot cheat the rules of the Universe.
The price of the ability to influence your mind, and thus the results you experience in life, is a lifetime persistence in applying the efforts described here.
You just can’t develop this asset without putting in the time and daily effort.
You, and you alone are the one who decides if the reward of experiencing the greatest gifts this life has stored for you is worth the price paying for.
I think it’s very much worth it! What do you think?
Here’s a very cool fact: your own subconscious mind and the Universe takes any “orders” and visualization efforts that are done in a spirit of absolute faith.
Think about that…
Though these “orders” need to be presented again and again, daily, the consistent effort of doing so is what allows the Supreme Intelligence to interpret them, and help you with them.
Having in mind all this, let’s do a small exercise and do a little legitimate “trick” to your mind.
Think about one of the things you desire more.
You have it?
Now use the predominant senses that you used before to remember that incredible memory from your past and experience your dear desire with those same senses, and the same intensity and emotions.
Be sure to make every effort necessary to really feel and believe you already are experiencing that desire.
Honestly, stop for a few seconds to try this.
Don’t just read it.
Feel as if this desire is already awaiting your claim, and that the Universe will hand it to you at its due time because you engage, every day, not only in creative visualization efforts but also in doing every action that is necessary in order to go to bed with a deep inner feeling that you honestly gave your all that day.
THAT IS ALL YOU NEED TO DO DAILY TO GET THAT DESIRE.
Do so consistently and if you haven’t attained it or aren’t incredibly close to it, call me so we can arrange for me to eat 50 plates of those disgusting Thai dishes full of bugs, one after the other! 🙂
