“I’ve discovered that numerous peak performers use the skill of mental rehearsal of visualization. They mentally run through important events before they happen.”- Charles A. Garfield (Author “Peak Performance” trilogy)


If you are reading this post then I presume that you are already familiar with the power of imagination or power of creative visualization. If you have not heard about it, then the next one liner might be helpful in explaing the limetless possiblities of imagination.

Through imagination one can trigger the cosmic forces to bring about any beneficial change in life, be it getting a new car, getting your dream job, achieving perfect health or abundance… whatever is your desire!

There are techniques to refine this wonderful ability that can be learned through specialized courses like ‘Silva method of mind control’ or through specialized books like ‘Creative Visualization’ by Shakti Gwain. Both options are reliable, Silva method has been tested by over a million individuals during the last five decades where as the book Creative Visualization has sold around 6 million copies in last three decades. These figures imply that a lot of people are getting results with imagination and a lot of people are familiar with this potential.

Imagination is not something new, all of us use this intrinsic power of imagination to some degree and get results; people who have trained themselves are able to mobilize universal resources better than others. I always knew from within that imagination works! but why it works was a question mark to me until I realized the wonderful co-relation that exists between the creator of this universe and man. The fact that creative visualization if rightly practiced is able to produce results is a live testimony of the following verse of genesis.

‘God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him’

Being image of god, we all have the same caliber and capabilities that god has, hence our imagination acts as an engine to change the material world as per our desire. This fact becomes clearer after understanding origin of universe as described in my previous post. The way god is able to bring any change to this cosmos just at his will, we too can bring about the same, provided we realize ourselves completely as a part of the creator. Almost all holy books like Bible, Ramayan or Guru Granth Sahib give account of miraculous events where men of realization were able to bring about an instantaneous change into the material world through their will, be it separation of sea or be it manifesting water fountain in a desert.

It is worth making imagination part of your daily routine, imagine you are getting things that you always desired or events are happening in your life as you always wanted them to happen. Twenty minutes a day in two sittings would be great to start with. Start with something small like, giving a good lecture or speech, or preparing an awesome presentation for your employer etc. Once these initial and simple goals are achieved step forward to next more complex goals.

    Yes, i agree, before important lectures or client presentations, whenever i visualize positive outcome, most often i get. Now it has so happened that whenever i am unable to visualize due to time constrains i do not feel fully confident.
