The future belongs to those who see possibilities before they can become obvious. -John Scully
If you’ve ever felt stuck and unsure what to do to improve your life, you’re familiar with the challenge of being short on possibilities! Most often when this happens you’re not really short on possibilities, but rather your mind isn’t open to seeing the possibilities that exist all around you.
Creative visualization is one helpful technique that can stimulate your mind and increase your awareness of a whole new realm of possibilities to enhance any aspect of your life.
Before you begin, first take a few minutes to quiet your mind and relax your body so you can focus better. You might take a few slow, deep breaths and concentrate on relaxing each muscle in your body until you feel completely relaxed, and then:
Close your eyes and imagine that you’re standing inside of a big map. Unlike most maps, this one does not portray geographical locations but rather your life experiences. Behind you, you can see all of the experiences and events you’ve had in the past; and before you the map is blank, representing your ability to choose the types of experiences you want to have in the future.
Once you’ve got a clear picture of this map in your mind, imagine shifting your perspective so that you rise above it and look down at yourself standing within it.
Notice that from this new perspective the front part of the map isn’t blank at all, but filled with limitless possibilities that you can choose for your life. See each possibility as a pathway leading off from where you are currently standing, and affirm that they are all open to you.
Look closer at these pathways and open your awareness to what they are. Do any of them pertain to your current situation? See if you can zoom in even closer and open your mind to your current situation and the possibilities available to you.
If any insights or ideas occur to you, be sure to jot them down right away and explore them in more detail later. If you don’t realize any new possibilities the first time you do this visualization, be sure to do it again as soon as you can (daily is best). Several sessions may be needed before you’ll be able to fully relax and open your mind. However, with practice comes deeper insight and eventually you’ll be able to see truly unlimited possibilities for improving any and all areas of your life!
This same visualization process can be used in situations when you feel confused about your next move or decisions you need to make. Simply see yourself standing in a map with pathways leading off from where you are and imagine what those pathways may represent as far as opportunities and possibilities. Most often you’ll notice that one pathway seems to stand out more sharply than the others, or you’ll get a stronger feeling about one and know intuitively that it’s the best choice.
The most important thing is to have patience and take your time with the process. The more relaxed and focused you can be, the better you’ll be able to tune into your inner guidance and make the most beneficial choices.
