The mind is a powerful thing. While its calculating properties are in themselves impressive, the true magnificence of the mind lies in the imagination. I often think about things like this. For example, if theories of quantum physics are correct and every possible reality exists simultaneously with our very own, then every possible reality (laws of physics remaining constant) that we can imagine does in fact exist. So do pigs fly? Yes, somewhere on some plane. Is there a version of you out there who is a rapist and a murderer?

Assuming the theories to be correct, then yes. Which also means that there is a version of you out there that is wealthy and successful beyond belief. There is a version of you out there that is extraordinarily happy. Now, imagine if it were only possible to jump between these realities. Imagine that you could go from living in the realm that you are currently living in and hopping over to a better, happier, healthier and more successful life. Now ask yourself why you can’t.

“Everything you can imagine is real.” – Pablo Picasso

The way reality works remains a mystery. There are more than a handful of theories that explain how the world could work — but without proof there is no way to determine which of these theories are correct. Nevertheless, Quantum Theory is becoming widely accepted as the correct version — especially after the discovery of the Higgs Boson, a.k.a. The God Particle.

Whatever your belief, one thing that is clear is the power that our imagination holds. Personally, my theory is that each parallel reality is connected to every other reality and that we ourselves decide in large part which reality we are to exist in. The key is to visualize. The skill of visualization has been endorsed by most of the greats as an essential tool for turning your dreams into your reality.

I am sure that many of you have either read “The Secret” or watched the short film. Whether or not visualizing creates a sort of magnetic energy that attracts what you visualize is true, or whether or not my own theory is closer to the mark is of no importance. It would be great to know exactly why it is that visualization is as powerful a tool as it is — but what is more important is understanding that it is of benefit.

I mean, who really needs an explanation of how it works as long as it works, right? Even if only looking at it from a psychological standpoint, it is clear why the process of visualization has as profound an effect as it does.

“I’ve discovered that numerous peak performers use the skill of mental rehearsal of visualization. They mentally run through important events before they happen.”- Charles A. Garfield

Visualizing is a powerful tool because it creates for us a reality that is as real as it can be before becoming manifested in physical form. The mind is an extremely powerful machine; it is what creates our understanding of the world outside of us. We receive input from our senses, which in turn affect our psyche by stimulating reactions of different emotions and triggering memories, always drawing links from our past.

The world that we know truly only exists in our minds. The physical world only exists to us as far as we can experience it. This is why visualization is so important. By visualizing, we experience events without them occurring anywhere other than in our minds. If we are able to focus on one single event that we wish for ourselves and we focus on it intensely, we begin to experience the emotions and begin to feel what we would feel if the event were to actually transpire. In a way, we are living that moment without it yet being a reality.

Like I said before, whether or not this somehow draws destiny to better align with your wants is up for debate. However, one thing that is for sure is that being able to visualize an alternate reality clearly gives you a taste of that reality’s actual flavor. If you are able to visualize details, all the way down to the smallest of them, and are able to imagine how it would feel to be living in that moment, you will get a somewhat accurate experience.

This will work to your benefit in two major ways. Firstly, you may come to realize — if you picture the alternate reality in a plausible form—that the life that you thought that you wanted for yourself won’t make you as happy as you first imagined. A realization of such is extremely important; sometimes figuring out what you don’t want is more important than figuring out what you do want. Secondly, if your visualization produces positive emotions then — if the emotions are pleasant and intense enough — you may find yourself becoming obsessed with that possible reality.

If you are true to yourself and visualize the future that is best for you, that future itself will ignite a drive within you that, if fed properly, will continue to burn until that dream is manifested. If you continue to go back to this state of almost trance visualizing your goal and placing yourself in your future shoes, you will begin to want nothing more than to turn that reality into physical reality.

You will have to learn as much information as possible about the details and circumstance of your dream in order to create the best visual approximation and in order to mentally live the experience more fully. But once you create a full version of this reality in your mind, you will be living your dream before you even achieve it.

With this reality being your only focus, you will almost automatically move towards that dream. You will begin living the life you want to live before living the life you want to live. There is no need to wait to reap the benefits of success. Sit down, close your eyes and visualize it. Do this often enough for long enough and one day you will open your eyes and come to realize that you are already living your dream.
