BRING YOUR DREAM,
VISION OR THEME TO LIFE
by: Wendy Hearn
What do you do on a daily basis to you bring your dream, vision or theme* to
life? One way is to spend time visualizing it. This gives you the
opportunity to keep your dream, vision or theme alive; it allows you to be
in the moment with it and the next step to unfold naturally.
Visualizing is a simple process so start wherever you feel comfortable,
taking it one step at a time. To start the process, close your eyes if
possible, and begin to bring your dream, vision or theme to life. See
yourself as the person you want to be and to have what you truly want in
your life. Take notice of what's going on as you see this picture; who you
are being and what it looks and feels like. Note your feelings as you're
visualizing and it's the positive, forward moving and enthusiastic feelings
you need to associate with. These feelings will enable you to move forward
in a natural, inspiring way.
Pay attention to the colours, smells and who you're being in relation to
your visualization. Now add more colours to your visualization. Change the
size of some of it and play with the aspects you want to alter. You can play
it absolutely the way you want.
Visualizing is similar to creating a movie only this movie is created in
your mind. Once it's fixed mentally, you can play it over and over again, as
many times as you want. Remember, at any time the movie can be edited to
suit you better and you will play the movie out in real life at the pace
that feels right for you. At times your steps will be big; at other times
they will be small and occasionally you will take an outrageous stride
Ideally you need to visualize and see your movie as many times as possible
in a day. There are three key times when I would definitely encourage you to
visualize. First, is when you wake up in the morning. It's a great way to
start the day and will leave you feeling clearer about your intention,
direction and focus for the day ahead.
Second, is last thing at night just before you drift off to sleep. This
leaves an ideal image in your mind for your subconscious to work with while
you're sleeping. Be aware of what comes into your mind when you wake next
morning; you'll find some interesting and helpful clues.
Third, is when your belief in yourself is faltering, your inspiration needs
topping up or you're not sure what to do next. Visualizing is a great
antidote to self-doubt or being unsure. The more you tap into your
visualization, the more you will benefit from it. Visualizing is like many
things, practice makes perfect and I encourage you to commit to taking the
first step to visualize. Do as much or as little as suits you and
build on it.
What I want is for you to see yourself being the person who does or has what
you truly want in your life.
