Creative visualization provides you with a powerful range of techniques for dealing with real-life problems, and making the changes you want in your life. By harnessing the power of your unconscious mind and visualizing the type of person you want to be and the things you want to achieve, you’ll find yourself able to break through barriers that had previously been holding you back. You’ll become better at doing the things you enjoy.

Here are some key areas in your life where creative visualization can help:

  • Removing anxiety: By visualizing yourself as calm, using creative visualization techniques to relax, you can remove nagging anxiety, lower your blood pressure and overcome fears and phobias.

  • Diminishing pain: Using creative visualization you can focus on positive things and learn to ignore aches and pains. Creative visualization can also improve your muscle tone, overall health and self healing ability.

  • Enhancing creativity: The whole point of visualization is that it’s creative and therefore, by practicing the techniques it provides, you’ll become more creative in everything to which you apply yourself.

  • Strengthening belief: If you’re lacking in self belief and, for example, feel incapable of passing exams or overcoming obstacles in your life, you can call on creative visualization to strengthen your self image and your belief in yourself. As you grow, you’ll naturally achieve the things you previously thought were impossible.

  • Building confidence: Along with self-belief we all need enough confidence so that we can present ourselves well to other people and be effective communicators. With the creative visualization techniques, you can learn how to assume a realistic, positive and confident approach to life.

  • Setting goals: Setting goals and sticking to a commitment such as quitting smoking, or saving an amount of money is never easy. But by visualizing your goals and the results they will bring you, it’s possible to strengthen your willpower and determination to help you succeed.

  • Providing focus: Sometimes we find it hard to see clearly amid all the fuss and hubbub of modern life. By practicing creative visualization techniques you can help narrow in on the things that matter the most to you. When you use this new focus, obtaining your goals will become a clearer and easier process.

  • Improving body language: With creative visualization you can imagine yourself and how you come across to other people, and can actively evaluate and change your body language in order to convey exactly the impressions you want to about yourself.

  • Increasing energy: When you’re lacking in energy, drive or motivation it can sometimes be hard to get on with (or even get started on) a project. With creative cisualization you can bring the energy and motivation you need from deep within you to the surface, from where they can be harnessed and used to help you achieve your goals.

  • Providing fulfillment: Creative visualization can bring you a sense of joy and happiness – a contented feeling of fulfillment in your life, leading to a peaceful sense of oneness with the world, and the knowledge of the importance of your place within it.
