Today we will read about the book written by Shweta Gawain and the name of that book is Creative Visualization. This book teaches us how to use our imagination to create what we want. Creative visualization is successfully used in business, education, health etc.
This book has been explained in 6 ways, which we read one by one in detail.
The Basics of Creative Visualization
What is Creative Visualization?
Creative visualization uses imagination. Using this, we can do whatever we want in our life. This is our natural imagination. Energy that we are always using, whether we are aware of it or not.
How can we use natural creative imagination in a conscious way? Using creative visualization, we will learn how to enter into natural goodness and an abundant life.Imagination, through which we can create ideas, feel something. We can create clear images with the help of imagination, quote and express the specific. Then you think about it and feel it, picture it in your mind everyday.. In this way, you give that thing positive electricity, a real reality.
For example, you are not at all satisfied with your current job right now. If you feel that doing the job is right for you, there are some factors which need to be improved; So imagine those improvements. If this does not work or you feel that you should get a new job, then focus and imagine the future employment situation that you desire.
You remain in a deep relaxed, calm, meditative state. Imagine that you are working in your perfect job situation. Imagine the same thing twice a day or whenever you think about it. If you are clear about what you want and what is acceptable you are ready for change. And change a lot to find the item you want.
How does creative visualization work?
If you want to understand, you need to understand these useful principles:
Our physical universe is energy.
If understood well, our physical universe is not made of any ‘matter’; Its basic component is a kind of force, or we can call it energy. Physically, we are all energy, and everything that is inside us or around us is made of energy only. All types of energy are interlinked with each other and they affect each other.
Energy is magnetic.
There is a law of energy: energy or vibration of a certain quality attracts energy and vibration of a similar kind. Thoughts and feelings, both of them have their own magnetic energy, which helps to attract their similar nature.
Form follows idea.
Thought is a faster, lighter, smaller form of energy. Thoughts appear immediately, as compared to any concrete form, such as matter. When we create something, first of all, we make it in the form of thought.
law of radiation and attraction
The principle is that if you give something to the universe the universe will give it back. “As you sow, so shall you reap”. When we are negative and fearful, insecure or anxious, we tend to attract experiences, situations and people that we should avoid.
A Simple Exercise in Creative Visualization
Understand the basic technique of creative visualization: First, think of something that you love. For this exercise, you want to choose something simple that you can easily imagine. It could be an object that you want, or an event that you want to manifest, a situation that you want to see yourself in, or something that you want to achieve in your life. I want to improve.
You sit in a comfortable position. In such a quiet place, where no one disturbs you. Now relax your body completely. Take a deep breath and exhale slowly. Count slowly, from ten to one. As you reduce the count one by one, in the same way you have to feel yourself deeply.
When you feel deeply relaxed, then you have to imagine those things which you absolutely need in your life. If it is an object, imagine yourself with that object, using it, enjoying it, showing it to your friends.
Take this process for as long as you enjoy it. It could be 5 minutes or half an hour. Repeat this exercise daily, until you can do it.
rest is important
When you start learning Creative Visualization, it is important that you remain deeply relaxed. When your body and mind are deeply relaxed, your brain wave patterns actually change and slow down. The deeper, slower level is called the “alpha level”, while your always-busy consciousness is called the “beta level”.
Alpha level is said to be a very healthy state of consciousness, because from this state, both mind and body become deeply relaxed. In particular, creative visualization is best done at night before going to sleep and immediately after waking up in the morning. Because at this time, both mind and body are at their peak level, relaxed and highly receptive.
How to imagine
Many people don’t understand what “visualize” really means. Some people get upset because when they close their eyes and visualize, then they cannot see any mental picture or image. Some people think that nothing happens when they try to view the installation for the first time. Don’t sit with the word visualize. It is not necessary at all that you must see the mental image.
Close your eyes and feel deeply relaxed. Think of things you know, like your bedroom or living room. Imagine yourself sitting comfortably in a chair, or sleeping on a bed. Try to remember that experience, and enjoy those comfortable experiences. And whatever you just did, to bring images in your mind, that method is called “visualization”.
4 steps for effective creative visualization:
Step 1.Set yourself a goal you want to work for or create. Be it on any level, be it a job, home, relationship, or any change in yourself, a happy mind, healthy body, beauty, solving family problems or whatever. Choose such goals, which are a little easier, on which you can easily believe. You think that you can easily complete that work in the least amount of time.
Step 2. Create a clear idea, or feeling, of an object or situation, exactly as you need it. You have to think of him in the present tense, as if he is present in your life right now.
Step 3. Now focus on your idea or mental picture. Focus on both the things during the meditation period. And casually whenever you have in your mind you can think about it. And in the same way, it will become a part of your life, it will become a reality for you in a way, and you will be able to project it very well in life.
Step 4. Now give it positive energy. Now when you focus on your goal, think positively about it, in an encouraging way. Make a strong positive statement to yourself: My goal exists, it is coming to me or it will come soon. See yourself having it, or achieving it. And keep doing this work until you achieve your goal.
Using Creative Visualization
Basic creative visualization techniques are not difficult at all. The important thing is that you should know how to use it correctly, which works for you. And this thing will help in bringing positive changes in your life.
The most important thing to remember is that you have to do creative visualization on a regular basis. You must have a meditation period of 15 minutes for regular creative visualization.After waking up in the morning and before going to bed at night. And if it is manageable, do it once in the afternoon as well. your meditation period; Should start with deep relaxation, after that you can do any visualization or affirmation, of your own will.
In the process of my growth with creative visualization, I have felt two things to be most important.
Read inspiring and supportive books daily. And these books will help you to stay in touch with your mentors.
You should have such a friend or a friends community, in which everyone, being more conscious, learns new things. And only such friends will help you move forward in life and will give you efforts to move forward with you.
Creative Visualization Summary
We can understand our life in three aspects, and we can call those aspects as being, doing, and having. ‘Being’ is the most basic experience of being alive and being aware. This experience comes to us when we are fully focusing on the present moment. An experience in which we feel fully ourselves.
‘Doing’ means to do some movement or activity. Creative energy is the roots of nature, which is flowing in every living thing. It is the source of a strong and active energy. ‘Having’ is a condition in which every human being is in a relationship with another human being. It is the ability to allow and accept anything.And all the people we have in our lives; They can live comfortably in this same place.
three essential elements
We humans have 3 elements that determine how successfully creative visualization will work for us in any given situation:
Desire – You must have a true desire, or you can choose to visualize whatever you want. Ask yourself. Do you want me to do this from the bottom of my heart?
Belief – The more you believe in your goal, the more sure you will be in doing it. Ask yourself. Do you want me to do this from the bottom of my heart? “and”Do I believe I can make it a reality or achieve it.”
Acceptance – You should always be willing to accept and go for what you are looking for.
If these 3 elements are mixed together, then we can call it “intention”. When we have a strong desire to achieve something at the same time we can feel this desire from the bottom of the heart.. And you desire the most to get what you desire.
The most effective way to use creative visualization is in the spirit of the way of Tao, which means “going with the flow.” Wherever you are going, you don’t have to put in any extra effort; You have to keep it clear in a simple mind that where you have to go, and till you go, you have to follow the flow of the river with patience. Going with the flow means holding your goals lightly, even if they seem necessary. And be ready to change it.
If you have too many heavy emotions, then instead of achieving that goal, you will start working against yourself. In your fear, you will not understand at all what you need, you are actually giving energy to the idea that you do not want at all.
A very important part of the creative visualization process is developing a sense of richness. This means, you must understand or consciously graph a point of view, which is – “the universe is abundant.” Everything you really need, or want to ask for; So you just need to believe, and accept it.
One of the biggest reasons we fail is not getting what we want – “scarcity programming” is an attitude, or set of beliefs, about life. It is based on some misunderstanding of how the universe works, or some metaphysical principles. The truth about this earth is that it is a wonderful, beautiful, and wholesome place.
Meditation and Affirmation
Sit comfortably with your back straight, either cross-legged on a chair or on the floor. Close your eyes, take a deep breath and count slowly from ten to one. As you count, you will feel more deeply relaxed. With this meditation, you will strike a fine balance between cosmic energy, fantasy and imagination.
With this meditation, you can purify and heal your body, which will keep your energy flowing. Imagine, right above your head, a huge golden sphere shining. Take a deep breath and exhale slowly. You have to do this 5 times and your focus should be on the spherical light.. Feel that the golden sphere is radiating light from your head itself.
Inside you have to create a sanctuary, which means a natural sanctuary, where you can go whenever you want. A creative imagination can create nature reserves.. In that reserve, you can go anywhere. Imagine yourself in some beautiful natural place.
It could be the top of a mountain or a forest near the sea. It could be somewhere in the ocean or on another planet. You just have to feel comfortable, calm and good. Now imagine all that, so that you feel at home and comfortable there.
An absolute source of knowledge and wisdom is hidden within everyone.. It comes to us from our subconscious mind, which is always connected with universal intelligence. Your inner guide is the highest embodiment of our present. And it can come in any form, but usually it comes only in the form of a human being or a wise friend.
A creative visualization notebook:
Keeping a daily diary is a great idea to use your creative imagination. You can check anything you want in this notebook.. Similarly, you have other ways, by which you can make your notebook even more useful.
Like writing down your dreams, goals and fantasies, maintaining your own journal, pasting inspirational thoughts, ideas, quotes in that notebook. You can also choose songs that relate to your goals, that will keep you motivated to reach that goal, and more.
# There are some tips, so that you can write notebook well:
Affirmations – You can write down your favorite affirmations in a notebook. You can make a list by writing it well one by one on a page.
Outflow list – Make a list of such things, so that the energy of your body goes out of the universe and reaches other people. You send these energies to the outer world only with a particular goal.
Achievement List: Make a list of the things you have accomplished or excelled in your life..
Appreciation list – List the things you are grateful for, and the things you feel most grateful for in your life.

If you want to learn how to do creative visualization, then you have to understand and be in touch with your inner blockages, and these blocks hold you back, preventing you from reaching your highest good potential. “Block” is a place where energy stops, neither it moves nor it flows.
Blocks are usually always caused by negative emotions, such as fear, sadness, guilt, self-criticism and anger. And this leads to increased pressure on a person, which has a negative effect spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically. If you want to remove the block, it is important to know a few things:
1 – Whatever you are feeling, you have to accept it mentally and emotionally.
2 – Keep a clear overview, so that you can understand the root of each problem. And it can be, that it is limiting attitude and belief.
This trick will help you love and accept yourself at the same time. You will have a constant belief that limited destruction and all lies are emanating from you.
The hardest part of finding what you need is identifying what exactly you want! The sooner we are clear about what we want, the sooner we can focus our strong intention on that specific thing. And it will appear immediately, with very little effort. Writers always experience such “phenomena” when they are in a state of consciousness. When they suddenly have a very strong feeling of what they want, they get back an equally strong feeling that they gave to the outside world.
We can find what we want in life through the process of goal setting. By doing some exercises with pen and paper, it helps us a lot. When you work on any goal setting, there is something that you have to pay attention to.
Remember, goal setting does not mean at all that you should stop with only those goals. You can even change them when you feel it is necessary. Remember, goal setting does not mean that you can achieve it only by trying or only by struggling. It does not even mean that you become emotionally addicted to achieving that goal.
Creative visualization can also take the form of a mental image of what you will speak or write, or a physical image of what you will see. Anything that helps create a clear outline highlights the space. And this exercise will help you to make a clear picture of whatever you have written.
By going through this process, what you need will become more clear to you. And this will help you in making reality. We can use it to achieve all our important goals. You put your ideal position and image in your notebook, on a desk or by the bed, then hang it on the wall.
“Treasure map” technique is a very powerful technique. Treasure map is a physical picture in reality, which is related to your wish. This is valuable because it gives you a clear, sharp energy that you can see to reach your goals. You can also make a treasure map, whether you draw or paint it, or even a collection of many pictures, enhances the power of the treasure map.
For a single goal, create a treasure map.
You can make the treasure map in any size that suits you.
Remember, you must be in the picture. For a realistic effect, use your own photograph.
Show the Situation in such a way that it already exists in its complete form.
Use as many colors as possible. This will increase even more power and energy impact in treasure maps.
creative visualization in relationships
One of the best ways to use creative visualization is to improve our relationships. In every relationship, or any relationship at all, we get exactly what we believe, or expect. We get what we ask from our deep level. The person who is in a relationship with us is like a mirror.
They influence our beliefs, and in the same way, we reflect the beliefs of those around us. Having a relationship with another person is the most powerful tool for your growth. If we look at our relationships, we will really observe how much we have made of it.
Nicely and honestly, look at your beliefs and attitude. You are making what you want.
Use visualization to help you repair your difficult relationship.
Now be calm and feel the deep relaxation state of mind. Imagine two people having honest, open and effective communication. Imagine yourself, that you are talking with a person, and clearing things between you. Imagine, that person is listening to you and after that, he is talking whatever he wants to talk to.
Creative visualization is not just a technique; It is a state of heightened awareness. It is a state of consciousness where we deeply understand that we are the creators of our universe. And we take responsibility for every single moment.
There is no separation between us and God; We can bring into existence the divine powers of the Lord. There is nothing here; We cannot conquer or attain; We have the ability to do anything within us. Manifestation through creative visualization is a process in which we realize that we, with our divine power, can bring opportunities into this physical world.
The author says, I consider myself an artist and my life is a work of art at its finest. Every moment is the creation of a moment and in the creation of every moment lies infinite possibilities. I can do things the same way I always do. I try something new, which is different and very rewarding. Every moment, gives us new opportunities and with it, we have to make new decisions.
Thanks friends, I hope you like this summary. I hope that by adopting all the lessons of this book in your life, you will be able to live your life even better.
