Mental imagination is a amazingly powerful technique well known to top performing sports persons. It is an ancient art of meditation. However, there are some problems in visualization. Many scientific studies have shown both positive as well as negative aspects of imagination.
Many people tried to apply visualization as a meditation technique for higher satisfaction as well as a method to solve problems. It improves the daily performance in sports, memory power and self-healing. You need to know the exact art, otherwise it may work in opposite direction.
I remember, my teacher use to say don’t waste time on day dreaming. Visualization and day dreaming are not the same thing. If you want the benefits of visualization it should be full with positive thoughts, love and prayer. Happy imagination are also vital for visualization.
I feel visualization and radiation of positive vibration should be done together. Beyond Visualization means beyond imagination, it should be full with love. Visualization without heart is useless. I learnt the art of graceful visualization with love from my spiritual master Sri Amit Ray. His teachings helped me a lot.
Prayer and visualization must go together. Prayer will help you to reach the deeper layers of your being and the visualization establishes your destinations and values in deeper levels.
