Future Self Visualization
What is the Future Self Visualization?
The Future Self Visualization is a short 15 minute closed eye guided visualization narrated by me.
All you have to do is sit comfortably, close your eyes, listen, and let your mind do whatever it does.
I put this Future Self Visualization process together using an effective combination of exercises I’ve learned and used in my Co-active Coaching and Neuro Linguistic Programming certifications.
The purpose of the Future Self Visualization is to introduce you to a powerful resource within your unconscious mind, you in the future, your most positive “Future Self”.
Your Future Self is a resource that you can connect with at any time to serve you in any area of your life to gain insight and inspiration.
For instance, when you have to make decisions, connecting with your Future Self will give you insights into making those decisions with more clarity and certainty.
What is a Visualization?
Quite simply, a visualization is a process to form mental images or “movie clips” in your unconscious mind.
Your unconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between what is real and what is imagined, and it always says “yes” to whatever you say to it. You can therefore, create beliefs, associations, thoughts, images or movies in your unconscious mind that empower you to move forward towards what you want to be, do, or achieve before it actually happens!
Everything that happens in your outside world must first be imagined in your inside world, or in other words, in your mind.
Can we all visualize?
Yes! We can all visualize, even those of you that say you can’t.
Here is proof.
Please close your eyes now for a few seconds and imagine a pink elephant.
What did you see?
My guess is that you imagined a pink elephant!
Still not convinced? Close your eyes for a few seconds and think of the last time you saw a tree. Describe the tree. If you describe the last tree you saw, you can visualize!
How does your Mind work?
Quite simply, your unconscious mind constantly stores images or “movie clips” of your past and present experiences, OR that are created through visualizations.
Your mind doesn’t know the difference between what is real and what is imagined, it always says “yes” to whatever you tell it!
Neuroscience has shown the process of visualizing creates the same feelings and biochemical reactions in your brain/mind as if you were to actually already have experienced that visualization.
How do You do this Future Self Visualization?
To do the Future Self Visualization, make sure that you are in a place that is quiet and you won’t be interrupted for the next 30 minutes. That includes shutting off your cell phone, TV, or any other electrical device that makes any form of noise!
It is very important for you to go through this Future Self Visualization process uninterrupted in order to get the most out of it.
In order to get the most out of the Future Self Visualization, after the process, you will need some paper and a pen to make some notes about your experience.
With your download, you will get two files, one – the audio file, the second – a word document that you can either print (recommended) or edit on your computer.
Once again, before you begin the Future Self Visualization, please ensure you won’t be interrupted, and either print the attached worksheet or get some paper and a pen for making notes afterward.
Please ensure that you are in a relaxed state of mind before doing this process. You can simply take a few deep breaths to begin relaxing.
And lastly, Have Fun!
Let your mind go wherever it goes.
Allow yourself to fully experience whatever it is that you experience during and after the process.
There is no right or wrong experience, there is only what is.
Your Future Self is an energy resource for you to tap in to, as you move forward towards what you want to be, do, or achieve in your life.
I encourage you to use your imagination and create your Future Self that inspires and pulls you forward.
