Now you’re ready to pull the whole thing together and create a visionboard so you can easily visualize your successful year.
This is the fun part. Our subconscious mind loves to get pictures and images of what we want, attached to feelings of excitement and gratitude for already having accomplished something. So I like to take all my personal and business goals and create a Vision Board. Because I’m all about creating a better world, I also like to add some visions of the perfect happy harmonious world here too. Why Not! Vision Boarding is a creative process.
John Assaraf of the movie ‘The Secret’ and Law of Attraction fame, put the Vision Board for goal setting on the map. Since that movie, vision board software came onto the market so you could not only set your goals but we visualize your goals and dreams as well.
Traditionally to create a Vision Board you would cut out pictures that represent the goals you want to reach and place it prominently so you can use the power of creative visualization to manifest those dreams. I know, to some of you blokes it might seem girly, but if it’s good enough for multi-billionaire John Assaraf, in fact if it’s part of his arsenal that helped him become a multi-billionaire, then I figure it’s good enough for you.
31st of December: Create a Visionboard
Fellow author in Ready Aim Captivate, and a personal friend of mine Natalie Ledwell – The Law of Attraction Guru, has a great software program called Mind Movies. I use Mind Movies to literally make movies of my ideal life, business and world.
So on the 31st of December I create my vision board using Mind Movies and add it to the desktop of my computer. I also take screenshots of the movies to put up in office wall.
How Creative Visualization Works
Visualization is the process of using your thoughts and emotions to imagine and then attract the people, circumstances and opportunities you most desire, into your life.
Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich, has been talking about creative visualization for nearly a hundred years and it has been regularly used for decades by people from all walks of life, to achieve their goals in a much faster and easier way.
Even professional athletes, including Olympic Gold medalists, have been using visualization for years to help increase performance. A Harvard Medical School study found that subjects who visualized themselves practicing the piano had the same structural changes in the brain as those who participated in the intense practical piano training sessions – proof that consistent visualization can help people learn new skills and reach goals faster!
The Brain Science Behind How and Why Visualization WORKS…
When thoughts pass through the neural pathways of your brain, they create electromagnetism. If a certain number of similar thoughts regularly pass through these pathways they create the magnetism to bring to you that which you think. At the base of your brain is a small and very powerful bundle of nerves called your Reticular Activating System (RAS). Its job is to filter through the 40 million bits of data your subconscious mind picks up each second from the outside world, and send just 40 bits of that (what it thinks is of the most importance to you), into your conscious thinking mind where you’ll actually become aware of them.
If you focus on the fact that money is scarce for example, by default you’ve programmed your RAS to think that this is of primary importance to you. Then, everywhere you look, you’ll find this view of reality reinforced. This is part of how and why what you focus on increases. Your Amygdulla, a gland in your brain, amplifies anything you tend to repeat as a visual image, thought or feeling. That’s why if you get all worked up, you get even more worked up. The Amygdulla is amplifying what you let yourself feel over and again.
If you take just a few minutes each day to visualize what you actually want, see yourself enjoying a life of abundance and prosperity, you reprogram your RAS to look for ways to make this reality come true. Your thoughts begin to grow toward magnetizing this very thing. You’ll notice people, conversations and golden opportunities to create more wealth and abundance in your life!
Visionboarding Is Your Secret Visualization Tool
The secret to effective creative visualization is two-fold. You must first create a clear mental picture of what you want, and you must then visualize yourself achieving these results with feeling and emotion. Tying emotion to your visualizations is the absolute key to reprogramming your RAS to bring into your reality everything you desire. However, being able to successfully visualize your goals in your mind with complete emotion, can feel impossible for some people.
This is what makes Mind Movies so powerful! It’s a vision baord software that is the ultimate shortcut. It ‘cheats’ the system so that you don’t have to spend hours doing visualization sessions everyday. By combining positive affirmations, inspiring images and motivating music, you’ll easily be able to visualize with inspired emotion, and it takes just 3 minutes a day! This will then inevitably reprogram your RAS with lightning speed and accuracy to make your dreams your reality. Mind Movies is without question the easiest, fastest and most powerful visualization tool available.
