I was reading a report from Esther Hicks. If you don’t know who she is, Esther in my opinion, is one of the greatest speakers and authors about manifesting our goals and desires.
The report was about the power of visualization to convince the subconscious mind that our desire can become reality. I’ve been visualizing for years, and it’s truly a great experience. However, many people don’t take the time to do this. I have even gone long periods where I fail to practice visualization.
The question is…if visualization is so powerful and effective, who don’t people do it all the time? There are several reasons, but I believe the main one is that people think they have to spend a huge amount of time doing it…time that they don’t have much of.
If that’s you, I have some good news. According to Esther Hicks, you can make effective changes by visualizing for only 68 seconds at a time. That’s right. Only a minute or so. I don’t know where she came up with 68 seconds. However, I do know that she has helped me and thousands of others reach their goals. I’ll listen to whatever suggestions she provides. I also decided to try this and see if this was enough time. Sure enough, I found that visualizing for even this short amount of time was a big help.
I find this to be excellent news. Like many, I don’t have as much time as I would like to visualize the success I crave. However, 68 seconds can be spent anywhere, such as a grocery line, waiting at a traffic light, in between tasks, you name it. Obviously, the more time you can spend visualizing, the better. However, even just a minute or two is better than not at all. In addtion, it is enough time to improve your frame of mind and provide the necessary confidence to take the steps to accomplishing your goals.
I suggest you try this exercise. Next time you get even the shortest break, spend just over a minute visualizing the successful completion of your goal and feel the corresponding positive emotions. I guarantee you will bring yourself closer to its reality. Enjoy the blessings : )
