Last week we touched on visualising briefly. This a great tool to move past fear and to bring into being what you would like to have in your life.
You can do it with anything. It’s easy and only really takes a few minutes. You can do it before you go to sleep, first thing in the morning when you wake up or anytime you can stop for 5 minutes or so. Doing it just before you go to sleep is very effective as you are taking the positive thought into your subconscious mind allowing you to examine it whilst you drift off without your conscious mind coming into play and putting up all kinds of barriers. It helps to get rid of resistance. The same goes for first thing in the morning as you are coming out of your sleep state before the conscious mind becomes fully awake and once more starts to bring up all the negative thoughts. We have over 60,000 thoughts a day and if you take a good look you will find that most of them are negative!
But whatever time you choose to do it all you need to do is to get comfortable and close your eyes. Bring to mind the thing you would like to have in your life. That could be a new job, car or a better relationship with your partner, child or friend. Put it all up on a screen as if you are watching yourself in a movie and you are the director. Fill in all the details as you would like them to be.
If it’s a job imagine what it’s like to walk into the place you will work in, the people around you, the desk, the chair, put all of it into the picture you are creating. If it’s a better relationship look closely at the person. Are they as nasty as you think they are? Can you see yourself having a lovely conversation with them? Really feel what it would be like.
Then ask yourself does this feel better or worse? If fear was there before you began the exercise has this now subsided? What has replaced it? Explore these new feelings, (they will be different for everyone).
If the feelings are better it’s a good idea to focus on these better thoughts. When you do that, similar better feeling thoughts follow. The overall result is that you feel some relief or maybe even loads better. That negative thought be it fear, anger, resentment etc. subsides.
If you look at your emotions on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the best ones, then which ones do you choose to focus on?
You will probably need to do this a few times to get into the swing of it. And if your problem is really deep rooted or you still feel stuck in the negative then please do get in touch.
Think this is all mumbo jumbo? Athletes do this all the time. And guess what? The ones that perfect it win! Let us know how successful this exercise has been for you.
