Visualization Tips:
Honing the Power of Visualization

Have you ever wished for visualization tips when visualization did not quite seem to work for you?


Have you wondered how you could make it even better?


Maybe you are even struggling to get started with visualization because you are not sure if you are getting it quite right.

Sometimes we just need that one or two things to course correct, to discover what missing ingredient will elevate our effectiveness

Here are a number of visualization tips I have used for myself as well as have given away to other people.  

1. Visualization Tips Begin with:
Believing You Can...

The first of the visualization tips:  Most important thing is to believe you can accomplish whatever you take on. 

“He who who says he can and he who says he can’t are both usually right” -Confucius

When I have taken on coaching someone or teaching them a new skill, I hold in my mind's eye, that person succeeding.

If I cannot do that or am not willing to do that, I will not work with that person because to do anything less is detrimental to that person's success. 

Usually that person succeeds.  Sometimes the person needs a little more time than what we thought it would take.  Other times the person produces a result that was just as good as if not better than what they were originally intending.

The times when the person does not succeed?  Those are the times when I have not effectively worked with the person to have them view the situation with power.  Even then, the person's level of effectiveness increases.

2. Create the Essence of What You Want...

The next of the visualization tips is to get present to the essence of what you want first.  The essence of what you want is most important.  The essence could be freedom, happiness, security, joy, passion, well-being.

There are no right answers here.  In fact, what you think you want may alter as you become more and more clear about the essence of what you want. 

Many of us have gone after something we wanted.  Only later do we discover that we got exactly what we said, but there is no fulfillment. 

When we can practice the essence of what we want, we can allow it to come in the highest and best form.

3. Practice Experiencing the Essence...

Practice experiencing the essence of what you want.  What does it feel like to have what you want?  Can you visualize the room you are in, the people that are in the room with you?  What sounds do you hear?  What are the smells?

Create the picture for yourself as vividly as possible. 

Can you ask for something better?  What would it be  like if the essence of what you want was even better than picture you created in your visualization?  What would you have, who would you be talking to?  How would you feel?  What experience would you be having?

Don't worry if you only have a vague sense of the picture.  Whatever you create is perfect.

4. Visualizaton Tips When You Can't Visualize

What if you cannot visualize and experience the essence of what you want?  You can always visualize a symbol that represents the essence of what you want

Sometimes I do this type of visualization when I want to make sure that I allow what I want to come to me in the best way possible.

Sometimes what I picture is limited, and I can allow for something greater to be possible with visualizing a symbol that represents the essence of what I want. 

Interestingly, when I have given up how something has to be, I get something way better than what I could have ever expected.

5. Begin with the End in Mind

Act as if what you intend to manifest is true.  This helps you wear what it would be like once you have manifested the result you intend to accomplish.

6. Release Your Intention

Release what you intend to manifest.  What does that look like?  As an example, when I am using healing techniques,

I set an intention for the healing technique to work.  I visualize the healing technique having already worked. 

Then, just before I am about to execute the technique, I let my mind go silent.  No thoughts.  I trust and allow whatever result is for the best to come.

7.  Ready, Set, Practice!

The final piece of the visualization tips? Practice, practice, practice.  Whatever way of visualization works for you, practice it multiple times a day.

This is something I do whenever I think about a goal I have.  I just take a minute or two to really experience the essence of what I want. 

However, as mentioned previously, you can fine tune this to really visualize the symbol of what  you want or to really create the visual of what you want.
