V is for Visualisation
“Visualisation is daydreaming with a purpose.” -Bo Bennett-
If you can visualize your future and hold that intention in your mind every day, there will come a time when you will meet that future vision in the present moment. You will know because it will feel familiar, like you’ve been there before, and feel right. As if you were expecting it.
The alternative is not visualizing your future and stumbling through life ‘hoping’ for things. In that case, there is a chance that you will get them, but there is a better chance that you will walk right past the future you want as it appears.
Something remarkable unfolds when we visualize the future we want and focus on daily. First, we start to notice events, people, and circumstances that align with our intention appear in our lives. Then, because we consistently focus on that future outcome, our brain (specifically the RAS or reticular activating system) finds and shows us how to do it.
Visualization, affirmations, intention, and a disciplined work ethic will lead you to the future you want, but you must also have faith, desire and belief.
When we combine faith, desire and belief, then sprinkle in a bit of visualization, we will manifest opportunities set up by the Universe so that we can take the path toward our dreams.
It may show up as a conversation we hear on a bus or a song on the radio delivering a message meant for us. The synchronicities spark ideas and become so apparent after a while that when it happens to me, I laugh a little, smile and say thank you.
In The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho said, “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you get it.” The way we let the Universe know how to help us get what we want is by Visualisation.
