There are many techniques you can use to tap into the amazing power of your thoughts. I have here for you a simple visualization exercise which becomes extremely powerful when you master it.
Visualization basically means to sustain an idea or image in our mind of what we want to create for a few minutes every day. A good example can be that sportspersons today use visualization just before they compete. They envision themselves successful in whatever sport it is that they play. And the result is that their game improves drastically.
You should know that the subconscious mind can not distinguish between what is real and what is imagined! Take a few seconds right now and close your eyes. Imagine that you are drinking pure lemon juice for example. Then watch how you react.
The visualization should also be in a conscious and controlled manner and should be as real and vivid as possible. We should be able to feel the desired result taking place right in front of us and it is a skill that must be developed for most people, so some patience is needed.
Here is a simple technique to develop your visualization skills…
1. First relax yourself. The more relaxed you are, the more control you will have over your thoughts.
2. Use the 3-Finger technique. Let the tips of your thumb, index, and middle finger touch each other. It should be done on both your hands. This has been known to help your mind focus.
3. Take something simple – an outline of a triangle or square may be and make a firm resolve to focus only on this for the next 5 minutes or so.
4. Now while you are visualizing, you will notice that your mind keeps wavering about. Do not fight it, because that is counter-productive. Just accept it, and move back to the image you had chosen to visualize.
Regular practice of the above exercise will surely improve your visualization skills tremendously. So there you have it! A simple and effective mind power technique you can start using immediately.
