The Power Of Visualization By Mel Robbins

If you expect to achieve your goals, if you expect to reach your potential, if you expect to have your dreams come true, what I’m about to explain to you is mission-critical. You must become a master at visualization. For those of you that are like, “What the heck is she talking about?” I did not sign up for some meditation woo woo, spiritual thing here. Don’t worry. This is Mel Robbins. There’s always science and research involved in everything that I talk about. Visualization is a extraordinarily powerful skill. You may have heard of the Law of Attraction. You may have heard of the word visualization. You may have heard of the word manifesting. I call it seeing signs. Your brain has a system in it. Here’s the technical term, it’s called the Reticular Activating System. It is a network of neurons. And what is the job of the Reticular Activating System?

 

neurons

 

It is a filter system. It’s basically a system that allows certain information in your brain and it blocks out other information and guess who programmed that filter? You did and so did the people from your past. So if you constantly feel like you’re unlovable, guess what? Your Reticular Activating system is going through the day and it is going to point out every single piece of evidence that confirms that negative belief that you have. If you think that people don’t like you at work, the Reticular Activating System, the filter, is literally going to be looking for evidence to confirm that belief all day long.

Why do we have a Reticular Activating System?

There’s a really important reason why you have this. The reason why is if your brain let in everything, have you ever looked at a Facebook page? Have you noticed how many words are on a standard Facebook page? The ad over here and the ad over here. You see the stuff up here and the all of this over here. If your brain took in everything in equal value, your head would literally explode off shoulders. Your brain would melt down. And so the Reticular Activating System protects your brain by filtering information and only letting in stuff that it agrees with. So, that’s the scientific reason and mandate for why you got to get busy reprogramming that thing. Now we’re going to talk about how you use visualization in order to start to reprogram the Reticular Activating System in your brain so that your brain starts to spot opportunity.Your brain starts to spot evidence that things are working out. Your brain starts to spot coincidences so you can build momentum and it begins with visualization.

 

Increase Your Productivity X10

 

Simple Two Step Process

So as you take your goals, right, so you’ve written down all these goals, right? I want you to go to each one and I want you to do a visualization exercise. And here’s how you’re going to do it based on science because there’s a particular way you have to do this based on science, okay? It’s a two-step method. If your goal is to improve your self-worth, I want you to visualize what your life looks like and how you’re going to feel about yourself when your self-worth has improved. There’s two things that you have to do when it comes to visualization. You have to close your eyes. Truly! I know it sounds stupid, but I want you to close your eyes and I want you to in your mind, have a specific picture of what it looks like in your life when your self-worth has improved.

You’re going to see yourself speaking up at work. You’re going to see yourself talking more about your business. You’re going to see yourself leaving bad relationships. You’re going to see yourself defining boundaries, you’re going to see yourself going to the gym, you’re going to see yourself taking care of yourself. And when you start to visualize the image of that, here is step two, I want you to consciously think of the positive emotions that you’re going to feel. I’m going to feel happy. I’m going to feel proud. I’m going to stand taller. I’m going to be so grateful that I made this change. Mirroring the specific picture, there I am. I’m at work and I’m raising my hand. Amazing. I’m sharing my idea. There I am, I’m getting a promotion. There I am asking for a raise. There I am, I’ve just signed up another customer to my business. There I am, I’ve gone back to school. I feel so good about myself.

The Science Behind It All

Here’s what’s actually happening in your brain. This is the cool science part. You are training your brain to have a totally different filter. You see your brain, my brain, it doesn’t know the difference between something that actually happened to you, like the F you got in your test in 10th grade and the things you imagine that are happening to you. Let me say that again! Your brain doesn’t know the difference between the bad things that actually happen to you, the real memories that you have and an imagined memory that you’re creating. Your brain will experience you visualizing going to the gym, you visualizing how happy you feel when you do, you visualizing asking for that raise and getting it and how proud you’re going to feel. Your brain when you visualize in the way that I’m teaching you to, it encodes it as a real memory and that’s important because when you encode it as a real memory, it changes the filter system, that Reticular Activating System.

 

How To Re-wire Your Brain For Success

 

And here’s what we know based on research. The more you visualize things, number one, the greater your confidence is going to be, the greater security you’re going to have about it. And here’s the really cool thing. The more you do this with your goals, you wake up every day and you just visualize for, it takes 30 freaking seconds for crying out loud. You visualize having a great day at school, you visualize killing your panic and how proud you’re going to be. What studies suggest and have proven is that simply visualizing yourself doing things actually develops the skill and helps you improve the skills, just as if you were actually doing it. And so there’s proof based on research that visualization helps you build skills. And then finally, the other thing that’s really important about this is that the more that you do this, what we know based on research is that the reason why you start to believe what you think is because you are reprogramming your brain.

 

8 Simple Tips To Boost Your Mood

30 Day Challenge

You are changing the network of neurons that act as a filter. And so, the more that you actually believe in yourself and you start thinking and visualizing yourself speaking up, the more confident you’re going to become, the more skills that you’re building and you’re actually going to do it. And then instead of looking for all the reasons when you’re sitting in a meeting to not speak up, you’re going to just speak up because you’re going to have changed the filter. You’re going to look for opportunities. This is how it works, this is why this is so incredibly important. And so, day one, I want you to go through all the goals that you set and I want you every single day throughout the next 30 days, you’re going to spend 30 seconds. Your dreams deserve 30 seconds, don’t you think. You’re going to close your eyes and you’re going to visualize what is it look like in your life when you have achieved your monetary goals this year?

How does it feel to go to the bank and see that balance? How does it feel to be able to write that check and take your kids to Disney World on money that you made? How does it feel to be able to rent your own place or put down a down payment for the house you’ve always dreamt up? How does it feel to be able to have saved enough money so you can quit the job that you hate and launched the business because you have achieved your goals? It feels darn good. That’s how it feels, and I want you to just savor that because what you’re doing when you visualize is you’re reprogramming your Reticular Activating System, that system of neurons, that network that acts like a filter in your brain, so that it’s spotting opportunity so that it is helping you see evidence that you are confident, that you are capable, that you can do this instead of all the garbage you think right now.

The Practice of Ho’oponopono Can Clear Stress and Negativity from Your Life

Published

on

Ho’oponopono

One method of reducing stress that you may not have heard of before is the Hawaiian practice of Ho’oponopono. Many of us deal with some level of stress on a regular basis. While it is almost impossible to get rid of stress completely from your life, there are many effective ways to reduce it. Too much stress can cause a variety of negative health issues, these include:

  • Heart disease
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Diabetes

Ho’oponopono originated in Hawaii, and translates directly into English as “correction” or “to make right”. The practice focuses on reconciliation and forgiveness by using an affirmation to clear the mind of any negative thoughts and stress.

The benefits to someone who practices Ho’oponopono regularly are:

  • Reduction of stress
  • Improvement in physical and mental health
  • Improved relationships with others
  • Control over emotions
  • A happier/more positive life

How Does Ho’oponopono Work?

Ho’ponopono does not require much teaching or practice, yet it is powerful for getting rid of bad memories or feelings. Ho’oponopono is a simple practice that allows you to release negativity that is being held within you. It also sends out the desire for reconciliation into the universe. This is achieved by using just four easy steps. The steps of H’oponopono are:

1. I’m Sorry: In life, it can be very easy to feel like the victim. We are often quick to blame other people or other circumstances for our own negative thoughts. In reality, you are in control of your thoughts. You are responsible for the negative feelings that have manifested inside. It is not always easy to admit that you have allowed your consciousness to introduce those negative thoughts – and that you have believed them. By saying sorry, you are recognizing that you are responsible for the negative thoughts or emotions that you might have. Apologizing to yourself has a powerful healing power and will help you to move on with your life.

2. Forgive Me: Once you have said that you are sorry, forgiveness is the next natural step. Don’t think so much about who you’re asking to forgive you. Instead, focus on the feeling of genuine remorse as you ask for that forgiveness.

3. Thank You: Gratitude has the power to completely change your outlook in life. Thank a friend, thank yourself, thank the universe or God or whoever you want to. The more that you are grateful, the more things you will have to be grateful for. Get into the habit of being more grateful every day.

4. I Love You: There is perhaps nothing more powerful in the world than the power of love. It doesn’t matter who the words are spoken to as long as the feeling behind them is genuine. Love yourself, your body, the air that you breathe, the world around you and all of the people in it. The power of love has the power to heal and banish any negative thoughts and stress from our lives.

Ho’oponopono

Why is Ho’oponopono So Powerful?

I’m sorry. Forgive me. Thank you. I love you.

So, what makes these simple affirmations so powerful?

You will probably agree that the four healing affirmations of Ho’oponopono are all positive things. When you can don’t have to convince yourself of that, and you just naturally “know” it, it is easier to push away negative thoughts and block out stress by filling yourself with love and gratitude.

Making Ho’oponopono a Habit

Because the affirmations of Ho’oponopono are universally accepted, anyone can put them into practice and allow them to change the way that they think and feel. Whether you use the affirmations as a daily reminder to yourself, or you focus on each of the four areas individually in order to rid yourself of negativity, they can make a big difference in your life. Stress will always be there and ignoring it will only make things worse. By recognizing that no other person or situation has control over your thoughts, you can feel more confident in getting rid of any negativity and stress that might be affecting you.

Start by realizing the importance of self, and how your negative connotations toward others or toward external factors could be controlling you more than you think. Once you start looking inward instead of outward, you can start to re-gain control over which thoughts you choose to listen to and which thoughts you choose to ignore. Always remember, the power to clear away stress and negativity starts from within.
