How to visualize?

Updated on September 28, 2012

“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.” ~ Albert Einstein

In my previous hub What is Visualization you learned about how and why visualization works. In this hub I will show you a simple exercise in visualization. This is basic technique. First of just think of something you would like to have or you would like to manifest. You can think about any object or event which you may like to happen with the power of your mind, or power of your imagination. Or think about something which you would like to improve in your life.

Relax and imagine

Sit or lie down in comfortable position of course in a quiet place and Relax your body completely. I have described a simple step by step relaxation technique in my hub Self Hypnosis is easy. You can use that or simply close your eyes and give suggestions to each part of your body (starting from from your toes and moving up to your scalp) to get relax. Just think of each muscle and feel that its getting relax. Then relax your breathing the same way. You will find that your breathing becoming deeper and slower.

Then roll your eyes in upward direction and count down slowly from 10 to 1, and feel that with each count you are getting deeper and deeper.


When you feel that you are deeply relaxed start to imagine the scene you want exactly as you would like to happen. Imagine vividly, see colorful rich images in 3 dimension if possible. Feel as if you are already their, in the scene and it will become a 3D movie. If it is an object, imagine yourself with the object as if it is already there. Imagine what people are saying, make it real. This experiment will take 5-10 minutes to imagine all this. But remember that you should not get tense. Don't force yourself. Just relax and focus. Keep the idea or image still in your mind and make a positive statement to yourself like, "this or something better is going to manifest for me in totally harmonious way ".

Why it is important to relax during visualization?

When your body and mind is relaxed your brain wave pattern changes and become slower. This is called Alpha state. When you are in a normal state it is called Beta state. Alpha is a very healthful state of consciousness. And this state is more effective to bring any changes in your body mind.

What next?

Now you know how to relax and visualize so you can use this simple technique to improve anything in your life. For example if you want to lose weight then relax and imagine yourself thin. Enjoy the feeling. See the image of yourself clearly as a thin person and your mind will believe that this can be achieved. And it will create a shortest possible way to this new outcome. You can improve your sports performance, you can imagine yourself a nonsmoker, you can imagine you relationship with your partner getting better and better. Visualization is the most effective problem solving tool. Just relax and focus on the solution.
