Things to Know Before You Begin
Before you begin your creative visualization practice, there are a few things you need to first consider. While the process of creative visualization is organic in nature, it is also a very powerful process that will require you to work on your creativity.
The best way to ensure your success with this creative process is to make sure that what you want is completely in line with what you intend to receive from creative visualization. Use your creativity and think of it as some mental housecleaning that you do so that you can get the absolute best results from your creative practice.
The most important consideration is – what is it you truly want?
Think of it this way – you’re going on vacation, and you know what airport is the closest, so you’ll leave from that airport. Do you arrive at the airport to depart without a destination in mind, and just say “surprise me” at the ticket counter? You could throw caution to the wind, but you’re certainly not guaranteed to get anywhere you’d be happy going to.
In order to find the quickest way to your destination from where you’re at, you need to know where or what that destination is.
And it is the same when practicing creative visualization. You need to know exactly where you’re headed, from exactly where you’re at, in order to come up with those action steps that will take you to that destination in the most efficient and effective manner. And if you don’t, you could essentially be wasting time “traveling” in all the wrong directions for where it is you’d like to end up.
One creative technique to find your “destination” is to find your Big Why.
Your Big Why is the ultimate reason you want whatever change is to occur. Asking yourself, “Why do I need this change to occur in my life in order to be happier” or something similar will being you closer to the answer.
If your Big Why is to quit your job to work at home, then you know your destination involves finding creative work that you can do at home, and building up your income to a level equal to or greater than your current job income. Use creative visualization to foresee yourself working at home and enjoying that freedom, and then come up with the action steps to get to that destination.
So even though there are some things to hash out before the creative visualization practice begins, you’ll find that taking this extra time will ensure your success in getting to the goal!
