The Importance of Visualisation

by Elly Hurley on 4 April, 2012

Day 9: I love that 10 or 15 minutes just as you’re waking up in the morning, when your senses begin to take in what’s going on around you – the birds chirping, the dull hum of the traffic in the distance, a dogs bark. And then there are your thoughts, your first thoughts of the day and these have the potential of shaping the rest of your day. They do mine, so I make sure I use this time wisely.

Now I’d like to share a little secret with you. If any of you used to play Pacman you’ll get this next bit, if you didn’t I’ve added a photo to help you out. Part of my morning routine is to visualise Pacman running through my body eating up all the excess fat. Perhaps it’s my unconscious speeding up my metabolism, all I know is everything I’m doing is working right now and I know it all began with my thinking.

Our thoughts are so powerful, if you’ve been following me from the start I mentioned this on Day 4, essentially what you think about you act on. It’s that simple. Think / Act / Achieve. Sure there will be other steps in there from time to time, because you didn’t get it quite right the first time so instead of taking the direct route you took the scenic route. But isn’t that what shapes us?

There’s another vision I’m using, it’s me on a beach in June in a beautiful white bikini. I’ve got a holiday booked on a tropical Island and I can see myself strolling along the beautiful white sand, feeling it crunching beneath my feet, listening to the waves as they lap the shore and I’m laughing with my friends and I’m wearing a white bikini.

But that’s another story……night all, sweet dreams and remember to keep you thoughts on what you want when you wake up tomorrow xx

  • You’ve got me thinking. I need to be more specific with my visualisation pictures. Thank you.

  • Elly, you are so true. Not only do we have to think it, we have to believe it. By believing it, we will act on it and then achieve. You got me with this one. Thank you.
