One of the essential practices for improving imagination and concentration are visualization exercises. The exercises tend to effectively communicate the wants to the subconscious mind resulting in emotion followed by action. These visualization tools improve our concentration and imagination skills.
The primary visualization exercises teach us to choose, manifest so that it can be imagined to be attained. It could be an object, an event, or a situation. Thus creating visualization is to be practiced to achieve the result. It is common to see someone crying while watching a sad movie, although he/she knows it is not real; it is due to the real impressions the brain receiving makes one cry.
Using our mind in creating an image of what we want will always create a stronger impression on the brain, which naturally tends to improve the performance with higher results. An excellent example of this could be the athletes imagining winning a competition. This kind of inside experience makes one confident and be successful.
Visualization exercises make one achieve results in the present. Though many believe that they cannot visualize, it is the practice and patience that make you master the technique. Learning visualization is made easy with the learning of visualization exercises. Once the visualization technique is mastered, you can embark on advanced visualization exercises in which the viewings are more vivid and compelling.
Visualization exercises are also based on symbolic images. Each image allows you to enter a new level of consciousness, which elicits psychological change. In this technique, one has to concentrate on the object chosen to achieve the goal. During the process of inner development and meditation, the symbols appear different from these symbols. One can intervene in the process and exploit the possibilities. These exercises help one to create his world for himself. The dormant qualities are awakened to a new concept and consciousness.
Apart from the positive mood created will help one to unravel the intuitive and imaginative powers. During the visualization exercises, there is a possibility that archetypal symbols and humanmade symbols could be given to energize you for transformation. While the archetypal symbols are universal, the human-made symbols are from personal experiences. By holding the symbolic image in our mind, it radiates awareness due to its energy.
It is your choice to begin the visualization exercise with a trained mediator who can assist in reducing the level of stress you have by his guided visualization. There are also downloadable audio which walk you through the exercises. All that is required is a private area where you can be sitting or lying. Closing the eyes take deep breaths in and out for a few minutes. Then comes the relaxation of your body and imagine being in a place of your choice and hearing the sounds around you. You can bring back yourself slowly to the present state and open eyes. The practice of this exercise will bring peace to you.
