What is visualization and why is it important to your life? Visualization is the practice in which a person intentionally focuses mental energy on a specific idea, image, or desired outcome for a prescribed amount of time. This is done for the purpose of sending the focused energy out into the quantum field where it can then synchronistically manifest into the life of the visualizer.
How does this work? First let’s start with the physics perspective of a thought. A thought is a frequency, a vibration. It is ultimately a form with structure. The only reason that the average person cannot ‘see’ a thought wave is because it is too fine of a frequency and our range of vision, the perceptual capability of our eyes cannot pick up on it. This does not mean it is not real. A thought is a thing. Pull up the image in your mind’s eye of a plastic sandwich bag. It is translucent, right? When it’s only one bag, you can easily see through it. Ok now in your mind stack a few more plastic bags on top of that one. Still see through? Yes, but getting a little more opaque. Ok now put 5 more,…10 more…100 bags. Is this stack of bags translucent anymore? No. Why? This is because although it is thin and translucent, it does have structure and eventually, when bound together, the density accumulates and forms something more massive. This is a simple way of explaining how thoughts work in our dimensional reality. So, if you are visualizing, and you spend, say, 15minutes really honing in on one thought or idea and you add emotions to it, pictures, sounds, stories, you are literally building density and next thing you know you have created a real thought structure- a blueprint construction in the template reality. Now this part of your visualization practice is complete and you let it go, you send it out in the universe and allow the quantum field to do its work through synchronicity, allowing it to manifest unto you.
Are there problems with this design? Well, no not technically. But practically, there are some issues for many of us. For me personally, to sit down every day and spend 15 minutes focusing my mind on just one thing can be extremely challenging. As many of us, I can at times really struggle with the monkey mind. The programmed incessant thought patterns, the distractions of the physical body, and so on. So the issue I am seeing is that we understand the value and importance of visualization, we desire to consciously steer our lives in the direction of our highest preference and joy, and we understand the mechanics of visualization, but in the reality of everyday life we may find it difficult to slow down, sit down, and tune in on one thing specifically for any amount of time.
I have been beating myself up about this for too long and I have realized that meditation practices are just like education. We are beginning to really understand that the major flaw of the public education system lies in its inability or refusal to cater to the individual needs and abilities of the students. Likewise, if each of us has a unique and different personality, life purpose, energy flow, etc., why would we all force ourselves to prescribe to the same type of meditation? When you think of meditation classically, you traditionally think of sitting in lotus silently and completely still with a blank mind. Yet this is only one type of meditation, it can take a very long time to master, and it may not work for everyone.
With these points in mind I have really been downloading some encouraging and empowering information about meditation and visualization practices that I think can really upgrade and revolutionize your spiritual practice in a way that feels lighter, more natural, more fun, more
spontaneous, and more powerful.
It is of the UTMOST importance that when you are intentionally sending a message or request into the universe, that you FEEL good. Your state of being is the NUMBER ONE ingredient. So if your current style of visualization feels forced, frustrating, or boring, then THAT feeling is the energy you are sending out the universe! Below are some creative suggestions that have appeared to me as options and tools to put in your toolkit. This is not to say that traditional meditation isn’t powerful or that there are not many more possible ways. I hope that these empower you, inspire you, and help you get in the right state of being to vibrate yourself into the most joyful reality.
