Using visualization techniques in your daily life can help to make the Law of Attraction much more powerful for you. It can help you to create an image in your head of everything you want out of life. Plus, it tells the universe what it is you would like to attract in your life. For example, if you would like a promotion in your job, visualize yourself moving into a new office, with your name on the door, and receiving a big check. What visualization does is help you to find your goals, focus and manifest them. This will then help you in creating a positive and motivated mindset.
Visualization involves creating images (which could be mentally and physically) showing your goals and your future as a strong positive message. However, there are many different visualization tools that you can use to do this. First, let’s take a look at why visualization is important.
Why Is Visualization Important?
Visualization can help you to create your dream life and visualization techniques have been used by many successful people to achieve their goals.
There are various reasons why visualization is important and many benefits too:
- Strengthen your motivation. Visualization helps you to feel motivated and excited to create your dream life.
- Program your brain. Your visualization skills could help to program your brain into finding and recognizing how to manifest your dreams and goals. This can make it easier for you to start using the Law of Attraction.
- Feel more confident. The more that you are visualizing yourself achieving your goals and dreams, the more confident you can start to feel.
- Visualization can help with stress. When you are visualizing, you are normally in a calm state of mind. This can help you to clear your mind, eliminating any worries and stresses you may have.
Here are some of the most popular visualization techniques to use and how to use them whilst practicing the Law of Attraction to achieve your dream life.
Creating a dream board is an inexpensive and very creative way of connecting with your desires for the future. The dream boards can be made using everything from natural objects to drawings and magazine cutouts.
When you create a vision board, you will be identifying your vision and dreams in a physical way as well as reinforcing your daily affirmations, which will be covered below.
If you are looking for more inspiration on creating your own, you can explore more dream board examples and ideas. These vision boards need to be personal and unique to you; anything you find that motivates and inspires you should go on the board.
Your vision board is great to have in your office, or on the wall in your bedroom for example. You can have them there in the background keeping you motivated and within your subconscious. Our free Law of Attraction toolkit also has more information on this and will teach you more about how to create the ideal dream board.
An affirmation is a simple statement that reshapes your beliefs and helps you move towards your life goals. Obviously, for this to work in your favor, they need to be positive affirmations.
An affirmation is a repeated and spoken statement. However, you can also include visual affirmations too.
An example of a spoken, daily affirmation would be if you stand in front of your mirror and say to yourself ‘I love having a great job and being happy in my own skin’. You would use this affirmation if you are trying to find a better job and maybe if you have low self-confidence and your goal is to feel happy with yourself.
(Hint: Take a look at the mirror technique.)
The Law of Attraction works on the basis that your thoughts and energies are recognized by the universe, which is why if you can put positive affirmations and energy out into the world, the universe will respond to it. Repetition plays a big part in your daily affirmations. The more that we tell ourselves something, the more the message is accepted by our self-conscious and can be manifested in our lives.
The idea of a visual affirmation is that there is a physical concrete form of your affirmation.
Examples of these would be:
- Having your affirmations on signs and put up where you can always see them. It may also be a good idea to have your visual affirmation stuck near the area connected to your goals, such as a mirror if you are looking to improve your self-image and self-worth.
- Set up reminders on your phone, so that your affirmation regularly appears in front of you. This can also be set as an alarm so that you have daily reminders each morning or before you sleep.
- Repeatedly write out your affirmations at the beginning or end of the day. This can also connect with a gratitude journal, which is covered below.
Meditation is a great visualization technique as you are using visualization at a time that your mind is clear and present. When you meditate, you start to gain access to your inner self more than you probably ever have. As you will be fully present in that moment, you can truly focus on yourself and your goals and aspirations. You can use this time whilst meditating to visualize your goals, create a positive space and send out positive energy.
Meditating helps your brain release any negative energy. It also gives your brain the space to go wherever it wants, which is why this is very helpful when visualizing. You should be able to have strong visualizations though meditating as you are allowing your brain to do the work for you, whilst letting any negative energy go.
Check out some of our meditation tips to get started on this, as meditation is a great visualization tool that you can use daily once you have sorted out a time dedicated to it.
A gratitude journal is a great visualization tool that can help you to believe in your success and goals while also providing you with a positive mindset. A gratitude journal is where you write down everything that you are grateful for that day (if you are doing this daily – which we recommend!).
Each night before you sleep, write down 5-10 things that you were grateful for that day. Doing this keeps you in a positive mindset and makes you reflect on the good things in your life. By concentrating on creating a happy present experience, you also teach yourself to expect the most from your future. This will help you to visualize your future, in a positive and meaningful way.
You can also look back at what you have been grateful for and take as many useful lessons and positives messages from them as possible. Reflecting on the good things about yourself and your life from your gratitude journal enhances your belief that you can, and deserve to, reach your goals.
Another great visualization tool is to use what is called a Magic Check (also known as dream check). You can use this to attract wealth or financial freedom as well as much more.
The idea of this is to have a self-written check that is made out to you and clearly states what you want to achieve. This could be financial, but it could also be a goal such as landing a new job or finding your ideal partner.
A dream check is best put somewhere that you will constantly see it. This could be next to your bed or even in your purse. As mentioned, the dream check does not always have to be about finances if you don’t want it to. Whatever your goal, write it on the check and make sure you feel good about what you are trying to manifest.
Fuel your check with as much positivity as possible and pretend that you have already received this sum of money or goal that you want to achieve. You can get your very own dream check in our Law of Attraction toolkit, where you can download, print and use it today.
Get creative with your visualization! Even if you are not an artsy person, you will be surprised to find how impactful it is to create art that visually represents your dreams. You can do this by painting, drawing, writing or even creating graphics on your computer. Some people will find this visualization technique better, as they have a creative outlet for their goals and dreams.
Just like a vision board, you can hang your art somewhere you can always see it. In fact, creating the art yourself will only make it more personal and unique to you.
