Putting Feeling into visualizations – But what type?
You probably have heard that in order for you to have something, you must see it in your mind's eye first. And although this is helpful advice, it isn't the whole shebang.
Because your 'emotional state' is a far bigger indicator of whether you're on the right path or not.
Take money, for example. Ask someone if he can see himself doubling, tripling or 10x'ing the amount of money he earns. Maybe he can see doubling it. Maybe he can see tripling it. Maybe even 10x'ing it.
But even if he can see the improvement, ask what his FEELING is about having it. Very often you will find that even if the person can visualize having it - he cannot FEEL himself having it.
Or, even more common, he may see himself with it, then immediately feel pangs of guilt, fear or anxiety about having it.
When you find someone who simultaneously envisions what he wants ... AND has a strong, powerful and positive feeling about having it, you're looking at a person who is destined for success.
On the other hand, if you're looking at someone who sees what he wants - but his feeling about having it is one of discomfort, he won't get what he wants.
Seeing what you want is great. Speaking about what you want is helpful. But until the FEELING of having the goal matches the desire you picture and talk about, you'll always fall short.
Match the vision with the feeling - and you'll know what visualization is all about
