Did you know you can use your imagination to quickly achieve your goals?
Whether you want to stop smoking, lose weight, be more relaxed or enjoy better sleep, you can use your imagination to quickly achieve these goals.
This article explains how you can use your imagination to create compelling and vivid images in your mind to help you quickly achieve your desired goals.
How to quickly achieve your goals
Your imagination helps you quickly achieve your goals because it:
- activates the creative parts of your unconscious mind.
- activates the part of your brain called the ‘Reticular Activating System’ (RAS) which alerts you when helpful resources become available.
- accelerates the Law of Attraction which attracts people, resources and opportunities to you that help you achieve your goals more quickly.
When you perform any task in real life your brain uses the same nerve pathways it would use if you were only using your imagination.
You can use this amazing phenomenon to your advantage to help you quickly achieve your goals because using your imagination is like having a virtual trial run. The best part of this virtual trial run is you are in complete control of the outcome.
When you imagine achieving your goals each and every day it creates a tension in your unconscious mind between what you are imagining and what your current level of achievement is. Your unconscious mind then tries to resolve this tension by turning your reality into the new preferred imagined vision.
When you amplify this tension over time through repeated imagination, it results in three changes:
- Your brain starts to rewire as your RAS accepts anything that will help you achieve your goals.
- Your RAS activates your unconscious mind to find solutions to quickly achieve your goals.
- It increases your motivation to achieve your goals.
You start to notice that you are doing things that move you towards the achievement of your goals. Suddenly you find yourself doing things you didn’t normally do and start taking educated risks.
You start each morning with fresh new ideas. You find new ideas pop into your head when you’re doing other activities like gardening, walking the dog, in the bath or going to work.
How your RAS works
Amazingly your brain processes about 10 million pieces of information every second of every day. Most of this information does not require your attention. Like the background noise in the room or the touch of the clothes on your skin. This information is still being sent to your brain but your RAS filters out the unimportant information and only lets into your consciousness the information that is important. Like the scalding water when you put your foot in the bath or the pain in your finger when you cut yourself.
How does your RAS know what is important?
Not only does your RAS let you know about life-threatening information, but it also lets you know about anything that will help you achieve the goals that you have imagined.
It lets you know about anything that matches your beliefs about yourself and other people.
Your unconscious mind does not think in words but in pictures. Your RAS is a powerful tool but it can only look for ways to achieve the pictures you give it. When you imagine a specific picture your brain will seek out and capture all the information necessary to make that picture a reality.
How to speed up achieving your goals
The process of speeding up the achievement of your goals is really simple. All you have to do is close your eyes and see your goals in the completed form. If one of your goals is to lose weight, then close your eyes and see yourself as the new slimmer you.
Make sure you fill in all the details.
- do you look like?
- clothes are you wearing?
- activities are you doing?
- people are you with?
Make the pictures in your mind as clear and bright as possible. The same applies to any goal you set yourself. Make sure you write down your goals and review them, affirm them and imagine them completed every day. Visualise each goal as it is completed and fulfilled. You can even do this as part of your 10-minute self hypnosis routine every day. Do this at Step 5 instead of the Positive Suggestion.
When you imagine achieving your goals you can increase the power of the process by adding sound, smells, tastes and feelings to your pictures.
- sounds can you hear?
- smells do you notice?
- emotions do you have when you imagine achieving your goals?
Intense emotions accelerate the achievement of your goals because they stimulate the growth of new neural connections that lock in the imagined memory even more intensely.
Don’t worry if you don’t see anything when you imagine achieving your goals. Many people don’t ‘see’ when they imagine but instead use one or more of their other senses to help them imagine their completed goals. What is most important is that you spend time thinking about your completed goals.
How hypnosis can help you speed up achieving your goals
Make sure you put time aside each and every day to imagine all of your goals already completed. This is one of the most important things you can do to quickly achieve your goals. Your imagination is one of the most powerful tools in your happiness toolkit so make sure you use it.
Spend just 10 minutes every day imagining your goals completed is enough. Incorporate your imagination exercises into your self-hypnosis routine and you will soon find your desired happiness on your horizon.
