No wonder creative visualization technique is being prescribed by many personal development coaches: the benefits of clarifying and emotionally experiencing your dreams by virtually reliving them in your mind has been proven to lead to the greater success in the “execution phase”.
I remember how thrilled I was to discover visualization, since daydreaming naturally was (and remains) one of my favorite pastime activities. While lounging by a pool, jogging on a treadmill, or sipping the second Margarita in the local pub, I would ask myself “Where could I be now?”, “What could I be doing?” or “Wouldn’t it be nice , if…?” and drift off envisioning various delicious scenarios. That field of potentiality, mixed with improvised creativity, emotionally charged with excitement, joy and freedom, and sprinkled with goosebumps is oh-so-delicious treat with which I pamper myself daily.
I do believe in the power of visualization, but even if I didn’t, creating the alternative life in my mind (just like playing Sims, if you will), genuinely is a fun activity Plus it really magnifies and clarifies, what is it that presently matters to me. I also find it extremely satisfying to listen to people, when they’re tapped into this field of potentiality and possibility, talk about their dreams and goals and ambitions… Trough those sparkling eyes and trembling voice I feel the closest connection and purest affection to others.
