VISUALIZATION: THE OLDEST MIND GAME IN THE BOOK
The act of visualization helps reprogram the rhetoric and memories that our brain has accumulated - and proceeds to regurgitate to us - throughout our lifetime. Whether you want to break a bad habit or start a new business, visualizing your future will absolutely help you get there faster.
1. BUILD SELF-CONFIDENCE
Studies show that the brain can't distinguish between real memories and a visualized one. So if the idea of you hosting retreats in the woods to help people learn tarot reading both excites and scares you, visualizing it will help the brain become comfortable with the concept because it will begin to believe the visuals you've provided are REAL. This not only eliminates fear, but also builds self-confidence.
2. LEARN FASTER
Studies show that mental visualization is just as effective as actual practice of an activity. I can personally attest to this. At the age of thirteen, without knowing how to do it and only seeing it done once that morning, I spent a night visualizing how to cinch a western saddle, and the very next morning I showed up to work and saddled ten horses without any help. Visualization f@#!$ing works, , use it!
3. REPROGRAM A FAULTY RAS NETWORK
The Reticular Activating System (or RAS) of the brain is responsible for perceiving our reality. It filters information for our safety and survival, which includes anything that falls under our current belief system. Which can be a problem if you have a poor belief about yourself. For example: if you believe you're unworthy of happiness, then your RAS will recognize all the moments throughout the day that prove this belief to be true and use those moments to reinforce this belief.
4. OVERRIDE YOUR LIMITED BELIEFS & HABITS
With the right level of relaxation and focus, you can completely rewire your brain with a personal hypnosis practice. When your brain relaxes, it reaches into Beta and Theta brain waves, or suggestible brain waves. In those states, you can reprogram habits and beliefs on a subconscious level that will then influence your actions on a conscious level.
