Tell your Inner Mind what you want to happen. Visualizations keep you motivated. Today we will discuss two types: Vision and Retreat. We say visualizations but we want to use as many senses as possible.
A Vision is a mental video of what we want to happen in the future, usually a goal. If you are a swimmer it could be winning a gold medal in the Olympics. Or it could be a vision of getting your Math exam back with an ‘A’ on it.
TO CREATE – Start daydreaming about your goal. Now let the colors and shapes get sharper. Perhaps feel the gold medal in your hand or feel the rush as you stand on the podium. Hear the crowd roar. Use as many senses as possible. Next see a white line from the present time you to the future you achieving this goal. Now see yourself going down this line to get there. You are connected to your future reaching your goal. Now add this up and create a mental video of your Vision. It would help to write your vision down. You can use it whenever you want as many times as you want.
TO USE IT
This is an escape from daily life for R&R. Perhaps it’s a hike along Mt Tam or sunning on a sandy beach in Maui. First decide on your place. Develop the colors and shapes. Hear the sounds. Touch and feel. Add your activity: skiing, snoozing, sex, snorkeling. Make a mental video. This is great for a break.
Create and write down your video for your Vision and Retreat. Use them often. Continue listening to the audio tracks and reading your Goalsheet every day.
