Visualisation Meditation for the busy mind and 5 benefits of including it in your practice.
I use visualisation meditation myself and with my clients, with huge success. I use journeys and take clients on very visual beautiful journeys and while they are following me, the body starts to relax, the mind is busy keeping up so stressful thoughts melt away.
Visualisation meditation combines the practice of meditation and the technique of visualisation. Meditation allows you to focus on controlled breathing to bring calmness. Visualisation allows you to experience the feelings associated with goal setting or releasing what patterns no longer serve you.
5 benefits of Visualisation Meditation.
1. A digital fast.
This can be said of all types of meditation, time away for devices creates mental focus, boosts concentration, and extends attention span.
2. Good for your overall wellbeing.
Visualisation meditation is known to impact us on all levels-mental, physical, and emotional. It can alter your life by helping you tune in to a deeper connection within, to your higher self, to your intuition and helps you make a deep connection to the universe bringing overall state of wellbeing.
3. It may enhance creativity.
The whole point of visualisation meditation is to let your imagination run wild, so it makes sense that it would help to get your creative juices flowing. It encourages your imagination to create desired outcomes in your reality raising your vibration and your consciousness.
4. It can help you achieve your goals.
To envision yourself achieving your goals supports a more intentional way of living, increasing the chances of achieving those goals. Through visualisation meditation you can slow and focus your mind enough to picture yourself, going through the process step by step, visualising the setting up of the goal, putting it into practice, being grateful and enjoying it. Also, you can visualise the result and work through the steps back to the beginning. At the end of the meditation, your goal will feel more within reach, and you will have a plan in place to get started.
5. It may help to relieve stress and anxiety.
Visualisation meditation comes with all the benefits of traditional meditation, including stress and anxiety relief. So, if you need a calming space, just drop into the body and visualise yourself in a relaxing situation.
There is no one right way to practice visualisation meditation. That’s the beauty of it, you can allow your imagination to take over and you can sit back and enjoy. Remember, that’s it safe to go with flow and make it your own or try different styles until you find what works best.
