It is a technique in which we use our imagination to create what we desire in life. William Blake called the human imagination the “Bosom of God”. Creative visualization is a very dramatic tool, given to us by God. There is nothing new or weird about it. We already use it on a regular and daily basis, whether we are aware of it or not. Everything in life starts as an idea in somebody's mind, a visual image which is then translated into reality. Albert Einstein said “imagination is more important than knowledge”.
We are able to re-arrange our whole world with our thoughts, our perceptions, and our images. Visualization is based on the subconscious mind's inability to distinguish between reality and daydreaming. In his famous equation e=mc², Einstein proved that energy and mass are equal and interchangeable. In dealing with the subconscious mind, thought is the energy and the outcome of that thought is the mass.
We are all energy, and everything around us is energy, energy that vibrates at different rates. The density of mass determines this rate at which it vibrates. For instance, a thought is a very light form of energy and can therefore change very quickly and easily, whereas a rock is a very dense form of energy that does not change easily. And yet, the fine, light energy of water eventually changes a rock.
We are all one with everything else in the entire universe, but at the same time, we are not one with everything else – the great paradox of life. God created us as very unique individuals and there have never been anyone else like the authentic-you, and there will never be anyone else like the authentic-you, but we are also energy like everything else around us, and therefore at the same time that we exist on our unique levels, we are also one with it all, one with the universe that serves us and feeds us.
Dr Deepak Chopra explains the above with his analogy of two candles. Imagine two candles standing in front of you on a table. It is night-time and you light them. To you they appear separate and independent, but the light they cast fills the whole room with photons. The space between them, is bridged by light and therefore there is no real separation between them.
Now carry one candle outside and hold it up against the night sky, the background of stars, billions of light years away from you. On the quantum level each star is connected to your candle because the vast space between them contains waves of energy that bind them. And as you look at the candle and the far-away stars, photons of light from both the stars and the candle land on your retina where they trigger flashes of electro-chemical discharge. It belongs to a different vibratory frequency from light, YET they are part of the same electro-magnetic field. You are thus another candle or star whose concentration of matter and energy is just an outcropping of the infinite field that surrounds and supports you.
We should not be afraid to dream. We need to believe in our dreams. The visualization of a project is done as though it has already happened, and the rest is left to the subconscious mind to do what it does best, to transform thoughts into reality.
