What is Visualization and how does it work?

If you need amazing results in your life you need the very powerful tool for achieving it. Visualization is the tool you need.  Many of the most successful people in the world use visualization to get what they want.  

Jim Carrey wrote himself a cheque for $20 million dollars.  Imagining getting paid this amount for movies he also used affirmations to reach his goal.

Eventually, everything he wanted fell in place and what he imagined came true. You see he also started small and grew into his goal. You’re no different; you can use this tool to get what you want out of life.


The word visualization means to “imagine” something. Lots of people don’t even realize how many times during a day they do visualize. It’s called day dreaming. Do you daydream?

Maybe you have sat and wondered about something in your dreams- an outcome of something or if something happened what you would do.

Maybe something like you did something wrong at work and you imagined how the boss “freaked” out at you. 

This is visualization, but just in another form.

The one you need to learn is one of deliberately imagining you already have achieved exactly what you (still) want to achieve.

Visualization burns mental pictures into your subconscious mind. With affirmations daily you help this along tremendously.

Once the picture is embedded in your subconscious mind it starts working and attracting things in your life to make this picture a reality for you.

You need to know that the sooner you get your subconscious mind to work with you, you will achieve your goal much easier.

Remember don’t think in the present reality, because this is where you will stay then.  You need to think about what you want as if it is yours already.

This is why so many people struggle to get the things going their way.

If you start focusing on what you want as if it is happening now – today your subconscious mind will start working with you and help you to get what you want.

Maybe now you’ll understand when Disney World was finished a reporter ask Walt Disney’s wife what she thinks he would have said if he saw it.  Her reply was easy:  She said he’s seen it many times before in his mind.

You need to make these images as vivid as possible.  Color them in.

See as much fine detail as you can.  

The more vivid you can see this the faster you will achieve what it is you want in your life.  – This is called the law of attraction.

When to Visualize?

In the mornings early – as soon as you wake up as well as the evening just before bed is the best time to do your visualization.

At night when you sleep your subconscious mind is working away at you goal all night long.

Remember to make it in the present.

If you keep it in the future it will stay in the future forever, because this is what you want.

Be very specific about what you want.  The law of attraction does not work with some vague goal. (For the simple reason- it won’t know what to deliver.)

Visualization can’t have enough detail.

If you use a lot of detail and very specific details with your visualizations you will achieve your goals much quicker. 

This helps your brain to know exactly what you need to achieve and that’s why you achieve it faster.  

You also use more of your emotions to get it and emotions are feelings and feelings are energy and everything in this world is made out of energy.

Now do you see why you need to visualize into the smallest details?

This is called the law of attraction.

Remember to try and use all your senses when you visualize.  Hear what it would sound like when you reached that goal, see it and how imagine how you will feel,  maybe you taste something and when you touch it how it feels.

A Very good starting point is to use your visualizations as well as affirmations daily. Affirmations helps your mind to stay focused.

Now my friend the only thing that is left is:  Take action!

With small efforts daily from your side you will achieve your goal much easier.  Remember Visualization is very important, but without you doing it daily it will never work.

You need to get into the habit of doing this daily, even if you are not sure how to do it properly just start my friend as the hardest part of everything in life is to start. 

If you started you can give yourself a pat on the back and just stick to it.

You can always adjust your visualization later if you start understanding what you are doing.

Remember you are now one step closer to your goal – and yes you are one step closer every day.

So you need to change your thoughts as soon as possible.

Famous Quotes: Visualization. 

“To dream by night is to escape your life. To dream by day is to make it happen.”
~Stephen Richards
"Create a vision of who you want to be, and then live into that picture as if it were already true." ~ Arnold Schwarzenegger

"In order to make a visualization a reality in the world of form, you must be willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen."~- Dr. Wayne Dyer

If you are visualizing all of the time and nothing is happening, it means that you are overriding your intention in some other powerful way that you are not aware of.

What are you thinking?

What words are you speaking?

What actions are you taking?

If you're not sure, ask the law of attraction to show you where you are overriding your intention, and it will be shown to you clearly.
