Do you focus on the problem at hand?
Do you search the internet to try and find out everything you can about the matter of concern?
Do you worry that the worse thing possible will happen and can only focus on an undesirable outcome?
Whichever approach, you usually try, I would like to provide you with information about an approach you may or may not all ready be using that can be a very good starting point to use, and that is Visualization.
Those with health concerns and body-image frustrations should not dismiss the Power of Visualization to help them achieve good health and a harmonious self-image.
One must first visualize being healthy, thin or beautiful before one can take steps to achieve that vision.
Visualization is always a key to success in any human endeavor, whether an artist creating a masterpiece, a corporate wizard executing a business plan, an Olympic athlete breaking a world record, or an everyday man or woman setting out to change something about their lives and achieve more humble goals, such as losing unwanted weight or finding solutions and remedies for their health and wellness concerns.
Many people dismiss visualization techniques as being hokey and faddish New Age practices, but visualization is not simply daydreaming about ones wants, needs or desires. The power of this technique to transform mundane daydreams into reality is more than merely the ability to immerse oneself in an imagined vision of a need or desire; it is a method of focusing mental energies to reinforce our conscious efforts. It is the practice of seeking to change the outer world through changing our internal thought processes.
Visualization should be an integral part of everyone’s health journey. Health and wellness is achieved and maintained through a mindset that at its core is founded upon a vision of being healthy and fit. The first step in any weight loss program or health and wellness regimen is changing your mind and correcting the thought processes that allowed the weight gain or poor health to develop in the first place.
The transformative qualities of visualization are in many ways akin to the sympathetic magic’s practiced by primitive peoples from time immemorial. The idea that a shaman wielding talismans and chanting incantations could heal the sick often would unlock the healing potential within the body of the patient who, through visualization, believed in the efficacy of the shaman’s conjuring. The power of ideas within the mind can have a profound physiological effect on the health of the body, as medical science has long acknowledged.
So too does visualization work according to those who swear by it. Imagery and meditation visualization techniques can relieve pain; promote the healing process, combat stress and anxiety and general tension and is an effective healing tool that has long been overlooked and downplayed by western medicine.
Visualization can be said to be the conscious creation of our own reality by training the sub-conscious mind to accept as reality the achievement of our conscious goals, and thus we attract the desired reality through our conscious and sub-conscious efforts. It is said to work for any goal from athletics to business success to romance, but most important is the well-attested effect of visualization upon health, wellness and feelings well-being.
Is there an area related to your health and wellness that you think visualization could be of benefit to you?
Then, my challenge to you is this. Start today and set aside three to five minutes three times a day that you will practice this visualization. Use all of your senses as part of this process and reinforce your belief that the desirable outcome will occur. Commit to maintaining this process for the next three to six months and watch what starts to happen in your life.
