- Bring Your Dream, Vision or
Theme to Life
- by Wendy Hearn, Coach
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,
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 forward.
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.
