With any attempts at creative visualization you take, one of the most important things to remember is an end goal. Why are you visualizing?
It’s safe to say that the average answer would be to improve a state of mind, perception of an event, or approach to daily life. When visualizing, what you’re really doing is attempting to re-program your subconscious, or reaching an alpha level meditation. Visualization can create very powerful emotions and requires the participant to confront their fears, challenges, and obstacles.
The Problem with Attraction
One of the most fundamental issues with visualization is the process of attraction. We all attract thoughts that are present in the entire universe. This quickly becomes very difficult to deal with, because negative beliefs are attracted along with the positive ones.
Even if your conscious mind is committed to doing something, your negative mind could be committed to something else. Unfortunately, when attracting beliefs, it’s tough to filter out these ideas in advance.
Instead, what needs to be done is to explore these harmful thoughts, and defeat them. These thoughts are also referred to as “limiting thoughts”, because they limit you from succeeding at reaching clarity on whatever it is you’re visualizing.
Overcoming Limiting Beliefs
The best way to overcome these limiting beliefs is to recognize that beliefs are not fact. Beliefs are rather based on only our experiences. When confronting these experiences, it is ideal to ditch the tinted lens. It is imperative to determine the particular limitation to each belief you’re looking at, since you’re analyzing these thoughts at the core.
Some limitations are:
- Safety of confronting these thoughts
- Willingness to heal these problems
- Ability to heal
- Desire to remedy these thoughts
There are many more types of limitations in play, so your main goal should be to detect what is holding you back from alleviating these thoughts.
In the end, it comes down to drive. If you have enough of a drive to kick these limiting thoughts out of your mind, you won’t be defined by them. Remember that emotions play a major role in your conscious interpretation of thoughts, and if you’re able to approach these limits unemotionally and specifically, you’ll have a better chance of rendering them useless.
