I hope you had a fantastic Monday. 2020 is here and I am getting the goals right off my list. I am looking to be as productive as I can be this year. I am looking to hit milestones in inches. Today I want to introduce you to some visualization training. As always I look forward to your feedback!
Visualization Training for Self-Hypnosis
Visualization is a key component in many forms of self-hypnosis. When you use self-hypnosis, it can be harder to use ‘suggestions’ using a script as you will be talking to yourself rather than letting someone else guide you. Thus we need to find other ways to influence our unconscious minds and using visualization is one of the very best ways to do that.
In fact, if you are good at visualization and you try hard enough, you can actually fool your brain into responding as though what you were imagining were really there. So if you can visualize yourself as successful – while in a highly suggestible state – then your brain will believe it.
But what if you aren’t very good at visualizing things? What if your mind’s eye can’t conjure real-feeling imagery? Here are some tips that can help:
Don’t start out trying to visualize entire places but instead imagine smaller items that are situated in the real world with you. If you’re sitting at a desk right now, then imagine a mouse standing next to your keyboard waving at you. ‘Rendering’ something small and simple like this is often much easier.
When you do this, pay attention to the way it moves, the way it casts its shadows and what it looks like from different angles. Practice this often and you can start to build up to bigger things.
For places, important tips are to try drawing on memories (which will populate your visualizations anyway, with or without your say-so) and to focus on sensations other than your sight. Think about how you’re feeling, the temperature and the ambient sound and you’ll make your environment far more real and lifelike.
One type of ‘training’ you can use to improve your abilities in visualization and thus self-hypnosis is ‘visualization streaming’. Here you will visualize items or places and while you do you will speak them out loud. Perhaps this would mean saying ‘the sky is blue’ or ‘the grass is blowing slightly in the wind’. All this will help you to cement these aspects of your visualization as ‘real’.
Most importantly though, to get better at visualization you need to practice. While you might not be able to convince yourself your visualizations are real just yet, with time they will become more tangible and thus far more effective in helping you to create your reality.
I am here to help you soar to your success from zero to the top. It is your life live it by your design. May you have success in your day today!
