Here are the top 7 life-changing benefits of visualization…
Note: By “Life Changing” I mean that they have the power to transform your life if you’re willing to try the modality for yourself.
1: It Sparks Inspiration
If you’ve ever felt blocked or stuck, then taking a few minutes to sit in silence, with your eyes closed. In your mind, envision your future and see yourself manifesting and creating experiences that bring you joy and meaning.
Hint: The more you do this exercise on a daily basis, the more you will spark inspiration to take inspired action. So often we don’t know where to start and the momentum is built by first seeing a path forward in your mind’s eye.
2: It Gets Rid of Stress
There are a gazillion health benefits to meditation and visualization. Apparently it lowers cortisol levels (the stress chemical) and also cholesterol. It can help to alleviate anxiety and makes it easier to get to sleep at night.
Hint: Try your visualizations right before you go to sleep at night. Your mind is in a prime state to absorb your imagery and lock it into your subconscious mind.
3: It Opens Your Mind to All Possibilities
When you can visualize your desired outcome in your mind, then you can see that anything and everything becomes possible.
Hint: The key to manifestation is to open your heart and your mind to all possibilities. There are no limits to your imagination, which is why it’s so important to spend time pushing the edges of creative possibility.
4: It Brings Meaning To Your Journey
When you visualize, it’s important to weave in your feelings and emotions. Ask yourself (as you are spending time in your visualization) how you feel. How are other impacted by your mission and your manifestation? When you become aware of the emotions that are rising up within you during your visualizations they become magnetized and you can attract the manifestation of them a lot faster.
5: It Optimizes Your Performance
There are many professional athletes that swear by the power of visualization and know that their performance will be better if they can rehearse it in their mind’s eye first. Runners, swimmers, professional poker players all love to visualize success before it unfolds in their current reality. If you can see it, you can achieve it.

6: It Speaks to The Universe Directly
When you take the delicious time for yourself to visualize your goals, dreams, wishes and desires then you are speaking the love language of The Universe. The Universe adores it when you allow yourself to get swept up in the magic of your imagination. Simply calling in a better life is a love letter to the cosmos and a sweet high-five for your existence.
Hint: If you’d like to create a more direct connection to The Universe (the Divine within) then make sure you get a copy of my book called Dear Universe: 200 Mini-Meditations for Instant Manifestations. The idea is to invite you to embrace your feelings and change your life.
7: It Creates Clarity and Intention
Sometimes you might not know what you want until you can picture it. Let’s take the idea of buying a new dress for example. You see that it looks great on the hanger or on the photo of it in the online store. You might buy it before trying it on, only to discover that it doesn’t quite fit right when you wear it. The same is for your goals and intentions.
Hint: You must project yourself into your future intentions and try on your dreams. Do they feel you? How do they feel?
