Meditation, Visualization and Change

One of the best ways to bring forth change in your life is to visualize. To (in your mind) see, hear, taste, touch and feel yourself living the life you want. This is how you use your creativity to bring forth abundance. Abundance is not always about material things--it is about living your best life, overflowing with love, peace, joy, good things and right opportunities.

There are several methods to aid us in visualizing the lives we want. One such method is meditation.  For the past couple of weeks, I have tried to begin every day in meditation. It spans anywhere from 5 – 20 minutes depending on how much time I have, but it helps me to zero in on my focus for the day and jumpstarts the flow of inspiration.  During these moments, I practice visualization. I create a mental picture of how my day will go. I conjure pictures of myself within my dream life: with my family, in my relationship, my career, my future home and even my future office. I imagine how I will feel surrounded by these things/people that I did the work to manifest. Then I work my way backward, asking God/Universe/Life to handle the specific details, but to provide me with guidance on how to work to create this life now.

There are no limits on which goals we can visualize to bring to pass. We can even visualize the smallest details of our lives. Two weeks ago I was inspired to change up the energy in my bedroom by moving around the furniture, reallocating space and storage and getting rid of things that I no longer need. I spent the past two weeks creating a vision of exactly how the space will look and feel when I'm finished and I've spent 2 days so far bringing it to pass. It is still a work in progress, but when complete, I'll have a new space to create in and be inspired by.

So how do you visualize? It’s kind of like “playing imagination” as you did when you were a child. Picture yourself doing what you love and revel in the feeling attached to it. Picture what you’ll wear or how you’ll do your hair. Get so excited about the prospect of having this thing in your life that you feel like you have it already. And when you come out of your meditation, take pictures of things you want and post them where you can see them; write about your dreams; jot down key words or phrases that make you feel the way you’ll want to feel when your dream comes to pass. The more you put out into the Universe what you desire, the more you will attract the necessary thoughts, ideas, perceptions, people, opportunities, etc. that will help you to achieve that goal.

Is meditation a part of your daily routine? Have you successfully brought something positive into your life using visualization—even if you didn’t recognize it as such when you did it?

This is very very very true. Visualizing change really is an important step in bringing about change because it offers an opportunity for you to actually put yourself in the situation and to see how you would act..very nice post!

I always say I want to get up and meditate, but my bed is never willing to let me go. I do walk to work every morning, and on that walk I tell myself what I have to do that day and I tell myself I have the skills to do it. I always end my walk with "Namaste" and Thank You. I'm thankful for my blessings and my talents.

Dee O., that so true--it's almost like a trial run to practice being in that abundance so you know how to handle it when it comes, right?

jessj, I am with you in the struggle to get out of bed in the morning. I try to begin self-talk the night before by reminding myself how important it is to prepare for the day and how much better I will feel if I just roll from under those covers and meditate or work out. But you have to do what works for you, and if you find that you're tapping into a peaceful day during that walk, then keep it up!
