Life's Preview

A hypnotist quite often will use a future view of ourselves being successful to aid us in firming up our commitment to making a desired change. The stage is set by going through a relaxation stage where we cut off the everyday concerns and our constant mind chatter and start to focus on a relaxed state of mind and body. Then the hypnotist takes us on a voyage to our future making sure to include as many senses as possible. For example; if we want to lose weight, we may be asked to imagine ourselves standing in front of a mirror wearing our new clothes and hearing the compliments and feeling the pride of accomplishment. The more successful the hypnotist is in generating that vision then the more likely it will cause us to take action to make it our reality.

For those of us that can't visualize easily then we have to put it into a form we can use such as a vision board. If for example we want a new car then we find a picture of the car we want and post on our board. Find out what it costs and cut out numbers and post it on our board. Go out and buy a spray can of new car smell and spray it on our vision board. Find anything you can to put on the board that reminds you of your goal. Take a picture of your vision board and carry it in your wallet and when ever you think of it; pull the picture out and look at it. Finally put the vision board in a place that will be the first thing you see in the morning and the last thing you will see at night. Ideas do and can create our future.

I leave you with this quote from Albert Einstein.

"Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions."

Exactly. Life is what we dream it to be. The train that can or something like that. We are only held back by our own boundries and imaginations. Great post Peter.
