Being able to visualize or “see” yourself “thin” is an essential element of permanent fat removal.
Whether we are aware of it or not, we visualize every day. As we process our thoughts, we project them as pictures onto the screens of our mind. Daydreaming, fantasizing, and mental rehearsals are examples of visualizations.
Many of us dream of having a new job, going on a hike in the woods, swimming in the warm waters of the Caribbean – all pleasant thoughts and images.
There are times, however, that we get caught in the negative web of mentally reviewing and rehearsing our fears. Have you ever had a mental fight? Or imagined the unimaginable – gaining back the ten pounds that you just lost? (Such dark thoughts! Oh My!)
Many of us don\’t realize the power of our minds. If you imagine the negative, you will create negativity in your life.
Visualization helps us realize our dreams. When an idea becomes “fixed” in our subconscious, we automatically make decisions that help us move toward it. Athletes are known to utilize visualization to reach their goals. They see themselves performing the perfect dive off the high board, scoring a 10!
According to the book The Einstein Factor by Win Wenger and Richard Poe, visualization helps to increase our intelligence. It helps to build the connectors between the neurons in our brains. It\’s like building a mental muscle. Albert Einstein conducted most of his experiments in his brain – by visualizing them.
Our outside world – what we consider reality – manifests from our mental world. First comes the thought; and from the thought comes the action. We create our reality.
For those of us who want to remove excess weight permanently, it is key that we spend a period of time, daily, consciously seeing and creating our new selves.
How will you create your today?
