How to Visualize and Affirm Your Deepest Desires
It's been a long time since I played basketball. But I have
a passion for it. I frequently daydream about the game. I
picture myself making jump shots from every angle of the court.
I imagine myself winning the championship, the highest scorer
in the game. I'd love to play regularly again, but I'm just
too busy with my job and other interests.
Recently I had the opportunity to play with a few friends
after work. I hadn't been practicing, but guess what? I made
more accurate shots than those who play the sport regularly.
Why the difference?
Well, that's the power of imagination and visualization. If
you want to be a lawyer, visualize yourself as one. Act like
one. Think of the suit you're wearing, the judge you're convincing,
the case you're handling, and the courtroom you're showcasing.
Visualize the evidence. Smell the victory. Make everything
You must also affirm. Believe that you are what you visualize.
You want to be a lawyer? Tell yourself, "I'm the best lawyer
in the world." Don't say, "I will be the best lawyer in the
Affirm strongly. Say "I am," not "I will," because "I will"
suggests something that will occur only in the future. You
have to experience it NOW, not in the future.
Sink into your subconscious your deepest desire. The subconscious
mind can do what the conscious mind cannot.
Here's an exercise.
1. Find a comfortable and quiet place to rest.
2. Relax your whole body. Command every part of your body
to relax, from your feet on up to your head.
3. Count back slowly from 20 to 1. Each count will find you
becoming increasingly relaxed. Upon reaching 1, you are completely
and totally in a state of relaxation.
4. Now affirm your deepest desire. If you want to be a lawyer,
say," I am the greatest lawyer in the world." As you say that,
picture yourself as the best lawyer ever, winning every case
you've come across. You may say "I am now explaining to the
jury my winning proposition", anything that will affirm what
you conceive in your mind as being of the moment.
5. After about 10 to 20 minutes of continuous confirmation
and visualization, count slowly from 1 to 20. Upon counting,
slowly become aware of your surroundings. Feel refreshed and
invigorated after doing this exercise.
6. Repeat this exercise everyday.
What you have just learned is a very powerful technique to
greatly enhance the power of visualization and affirmation
by imbedding it into the subconscious. What once you thought
near impossible to achieve will becomes easier to reach.
