Many mindset experts advocate creative visualization and this type of mindfulness practice.
According to the law of attraction expert Jack Canfield, elite athletes, the super-rich, and all peak performers are now using this technique to become powerful magnets.
You, too, can become an attractive magnet and use the law of attraction to attract the people, circumstances, and resources you need to achieve your goals.
Creative Visualization is Defined As
It’s a cognitive method of generating clear mental pictures.
It’s the ability to see clearly in your mind what it is that you want to manifest in your life.
- This could be anything from more money and abundance, to a new car, house, or even a new relationship.
- To practice creative visualization, simply close your eyes and allow yourself to dream about what it is that you would like to manifest in your life.
- See it in your mind’s eye as if it has already happened.
- Feel the emotions of having already achieved your goal, and imagine what your life would be like if you had everything you ever wanted.
- Creative visualization is the process of making vivid mental images through your imagination.
You deliberately modify the pictures, which leads to feel about them changing. As you practice visualizing your preferred future, it becomes a reality.

The Evolution of Creative Visualization
The history of Creative Visualization can be traced back to the dawn.
Visualization was used in a variety of ways by early man.
- One example of how early man used Visualization is cave paintings.
- These paintings were more than just wall drawings; they served as a form of communication.
- Native Americans also used Visualization in their ceremonies and rituals. They would imagine the future they wanted, and it would come true.
- Pierre Janet, a French psychologist, pioneered modern-day creative Visualization in the early 1900s. Janet believed that all human behavior is based on the mental images we create.
The concept of the mind’s eye dates back centuries to the Roman statesman Cicero. The idea was later introduced in literature by The Canterbury Tales.
The mind’s eye is the portion of your mind that considers visual impressions.
Creative Visualization has grown in popularity recently as psychologists, physicians, and researchers have become more aware of its benefits. Shakti Gawain, a New Age author, published a book called “Creative Visualization” in 1977, outlining how to use it for personal development.
Unconsciously, we all engage in creative Visualization.
What Exactly Does It Mean To Visualize?
When you visualize, you create a mental image of something you want to happen. This can be as simple as picturing yourself winning a race or passing an exam. It can also be more complex, such as envisioning a successful career or happy relationship.
Many people find it helpful to write down their goals or desired outcome before they start visualizing. This helps to focus the mind and makes the visualization process more effective.
Once you have a clear goal, it’s time to start picturing it happening. Let your imagination run wild! Use as many senses as possible to make the image realistic.
For example, if you’re visualizing passing an exam, see yourself walking into the room and confidently sitting at the desk. Feel the pen in your hand and the paper under your fingers. Smell the musty scent of old books. Hear the sound of other students rustling in their seats.
The more realistic you can make the image, the more effective it will be.
It’s important to note that creative Visualization is not just about seeing things in your mind’s eye. It’s also about feeling the emotions of already achieving your goal. So, as you’re visualizing, focus on the positive feelings that come with success.
How to Do Creative Visualization
Here is a basic step-by-step procedure for performing effective Visualization and invoking the law of attraction today:
Step 1: Relax your whole body and mind
Start by lying down in a comfortable position or sitting in a relaxed position with your spine straight. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. As you exhale, let go of any tension in your body. Release all the negativity in your mind and imagine yourself feeling good.
You’re immobilizing your body and commanding your mind to enter a passive relaxing state before beginning any creative visualization if you put yourself in the correct frame of mind beforehand.
The more relaxed, cheerful, and “light” you are, the more positive energy you will create.
We frequently propose resting or sitting in your favorite location and posture. Begin this creative visualization practice with whatever puts you in a good mood and makes you feel safe and happy.
Make sure you have some uninterrupted time before beginning to give your full attention to the task at hand. The more time and effort you put in, the better your results will be.
Step 2: Enter a meditative or prayerful state.
The key to effective creative Visualization is getting yourself into a state where you are open to receiving messages from your higher power, the universe, or God.
For some people, this will be a naturally occurring state that comes easily. For others, it may take some time and practice to achieve.
You want to become so relaxed that you almost fall asleep, but not so tired that you lose control.
Creative visualization exercises will be more intense if you take the time to enter a sleepy, passive state or start with a silent meditation. You don’t have to make it complicated; focus on slow, steady breathing in the silence.
Step 3: Visualize your ultimate goal
Begin constructing and shaping a scene or picture depicting the intended result once your thoughts are calm, receptive, and open.
This is where most people make mistakes, so keep them in mind.
You will only waste time and energy by trying to control the manifestation of your desire.
Your ego will ruin everything, so it’s best to let go of that idea entirely.
To be successful, you must create a scene that makes it appear as though your desired outcome has ALREADY happened.
For example, select a scene that speaks to you and implies you already have a high-paying client if you want to attract your ideal clients and have a successful business.
Choose a scene that makes you feel genuinely happy, whether it’s a friend hugging you, congratulating you, or maybe even treating yourself to something special.
Close your eyes and imagine you’re in this scenario.
Put yourself in the background and attempt to make the setting as realistic as possible.
To immerse yourself in this creative process, connect your senses to the scene and stay there for as long as possible.
Step 4: Keep track of your Visualization’s thoughts, images, and emotions.
Returning from the mystical realm with feelings, images, and ideas you generate is equally critical in your creative process.
The goal you just set and the desire fueling it is a higher state of consciousness than your current physical reality. Until the state of consciousness you cultivated in meditation becomes your new physical state, try to hold on to everything you learned.
All sacred teachings contain different stories and ways of expressing the same fundamental truth. If you study the works of great mystics, saints, gurus and seers, you will see this truth yourself.
Remember the images, thoughts, and feelings from your Visualization vividly; by the law of attraction, that reality will manifest quicker than this one.
Instead of creating all-too-common conditions that allow you to establish, maintain, and sustain your desired state as quickly as possible, you must use affirmations, masterminding, and coaching in the right way to help you stay on track and keep your faith and confidence intact.
Step 5: Develop your image-making abilities and engage in creative Visualization regularly
Creative Visualization is a technique that people mostly use when things have gone awry, or they want something vital. This is the least opportune time to hone and test these skills. It would be like going to the gym with the hope of getting toned abs in the first week just because the doctor said your organs were at risk!
Is it realistic to desire toned abs? Is it possible to get it within the first week?
Many people believe detoxing is hard, but it doesn’t have to be!
The process becomes much easier when you know how important cleansing, renewal, rejuvenation, and growth are for your body.
If you’re looking to tone your muscles, the more you work out, the more results you’ll see. However, if you’ve been leading a healthy lifestyle for a while now, finding a good trainer and working out regularly should give you toned abs in no time.
This should become part of your daily routine to maintain a sharp mind and creative abilities.
Choose to establish and maintain a daily creative visualization ritual. Sometimes for your own specific goals, sometimes for your general well-being, and sometimes for someone else with whom you want to share more of the good life.
You’ll be a master of visualizing and attracting anything at any time in no time!
Making the law of attraction work requires creative Visualization. To make your dream life a reality, you must be able to see yourself in it. Fortunately, there are several approaches you can take!
Vision boards are one method. This entails making a vision board with images and words that represent your goals. This is an excellent way to keep your goals in mind and help them become a reality.
Meditation is another way to get creative with your visualization power. This can be accomplished by visualizing yourself in your desired situation or life and focusing on the positive feelings accompanying it. The more you meditate, the better you will become.
The law of attraction is a powerful tool for manifesting your ideal life. All it takes is concentration, dedication, and creative Visualization to work its magic!
