Creative visualization is a simple, deeply relaxing and pleasurable
technique used to create or re-programme habits. Creative visualization
is a normal and natural process which everyone uses everyday. It is
simply a matter of using thoughts and images to access the sub-
conscious or the super-conscious aspect of the mind.
Creative visualization has been successfully used to:
Accelerate learning, improve memory and motivation
Increase relaxation, reduce or eliminate stress
Increase psychic sensing
Send or receive telepathically
Create or change habits
Build self-esteem and self-confidence
Lose weight and improve body image
Reduce or eliminate pain
Heal and increase energy
Eliminate depression, anxiety and phobias
Increase abundance and joy
Create or improve relationships
Manifest future events
Creative visualization has been compared to prayer, meditation, positive
thinking, hypnosis, faith healing, mind-control, magnetism, and on it
goes. It does not matter what you call it – as long as it works. Many
theories about creative visualization can be found and many explanations
are given. Personally, I like things kept simple. I want to know how to do it
and I want to decide for myself how successful it is.
I don’t want a Guru or any costly or time-consuming classes, gimmicky
products or academic tutorials. My purpose is not to explain the science
or philosophy of creative visualization, but to give people an opportunity
to learn how to use it.
Your results are the only proof you need to experience its effectiveness
It is a highly pleasurable process and completely safe. You have nothing
to lose, everything to gain. At the end of the day, your success will be
I know it works. I know that I am a happy, healthy, mentally stable person
who enjoys life, loves people and lives well. I want you to be able to say
the same about your time here on Earth.
If you can eliminate, or at least minimise, fear, worry, anger, pain or any
other harmful habit and replace it with vitality, joy, love, fun, success and
self-confidence, then call it what you want - but at least try it.
We all use creative visualization anyway. It's not some new toy. It's just
that we use it unconsciously and often in a destructive or conflicting way.
By learning to use these techniques, you are simply manipulating your
thinking habits and re-programming your mind to consciously decide
what thoughts you choose to be controlled by, or rather, how you choose
to control your life.
We think that we think in words. However, the brain actually interprets
words by reading them as images. The sub-conscious mind records
images and within the images there is an emotional interpretation and a
Thoughts create emotions - emotions create responses, and responses
Our belief system is created and maintained by this simple cycle. The
repetition of thought is how habits are formed and maintained.
The funny thing is, we all enter conflicting information and create
You may want to be healthy and happy, but you think about illness and
You want to be successful and prosperous, but you think about failure
You love your partner, but you mistrust him/her.
You may want to succeed, but you dislike or resent your work.
You want to lose weight, but you think about food as a reward or treat.
Well, what do you expect from your behaviour? You're wondering why
things get so crazy?
The mind is often compared to a computer. Your computer has
thousands of instructions running in the background. You don't need to
know what they are, what they do or how they work, but you know they
are essential and without them the computer crashes.
You are probably more concerned with the programmes that hold your
important files. The files you use everyday, which are prioritised and
sorted for easy access. When too much junk and useless information
backs up your computer slows down. Ultimately it will stop running. Your
computer will need to be defragmented. Defragragmenting your
computer will re-organize your data, clear out the dead spaces and
compress your data for easier access. Ultimately, you realize that you
need to delete the stuff that you don't need in order to free up the
accessibility of the important stuff.
Creative Visualization is like defragmenting your thoughts
Creative visualization is also like a computer’s virus protector. You can
scan your thoughts and weed out any potentially harmful codes. Negative
thoughts are like a mind virus. If you don't catch them and delete them as
soon as they appear, you'll begin to act erratically, and ultimately, you'll
When it comes to our minds, we try to run too many conflicting
programmes at the same time. We allow other people to enter data, but
we rarely check to see if it is necessary or correct. When you allow
conflicting thoughts to take up space, you will find that your valuable
programmes are sabotaged by opposing programmes.
You need to back up the important stuff and delete the junk.
Where you are today is the direct result of all the thoughts, emotions and
actions of your past.
We have habits of thinking, feeling and responding in particular ways.
Our thoughts, feelings and behaviours are predictable, because our
thoughts, feelings and behaviours are habits.
A habit is something repeated to such a degree that an automatic
Your brain has a conscious analytical part; it takes in information,
inspects it, argues it and compares it. The conscious mind is designed
for decision-making and logic. But for habit creation and emotional
responses you need to access the sub-conscious. Your sub-conscious
has no analytical power, it simply takes in information and records it.
Everything you have ever learned started out as a difficult task. It is only
through repetition that a habit can be formed. The things you now do that
are effortless and automatic were once large chunks of confusing bits of
instruction. You practiced (repeated) writing the alphabet, reading,
walking, talking and everything else. All these things are now so
programmed in and automatic that you never stop to think about how to
You can do things the hard way, that is, physically do something over
and over, or you can use the amazing capabilities of your sub-conscious
mind to believe that you are doing it over and over.
When you physically or consciously do things, your conscious mind may
interfere, argue, criticise and sabotage your efforts. If you by-pass this
process and go directly to the sub-conscious, you can visualize doing
things and the sub-conscious will record the information faster and more
effectively, without the conflict. Remember the sub-conscious does not
analyse, it doesn't care or judge if you can do something, it simply
programmes the information.
We consciously want great things to happen. We desire health, wealth
and happiness and then imagine failure, illness, debt and insecurity.
You can reinvent yourself.
