THE VALUE OF VISUALISATION
You will find the Benefits of HPT expressed in many ways in essays on Meditation.
Let´s look at the Value of Visualisation.
Some of us are visual people and some are audio. I am visual as colour is important to me and also since music is important, not continuously, but in its place also, but being a creative sort of chap I need to have a picture in my mind, which I usually transfer to paper in the form of a technical drawing or sketch, using colour for emphasis, before I start a particular project. And certainly, as I may have said before, it’s 95% thought and 5% doing that seems to work for me. That is apart from my occasional dabble into watercolour painting.
Another visual aid: There are ways of overcoming negative emotion by splashing paint onto paper and you don’t have to be an artist to achieve success!
Now, most of us end up working long hours to make a buck and provide for ourselves and family and we could work 8, 10 or 15 hours a day whether we are a doctor, a coal miner or self employed, and some work a lot more than that for very little. But the thing is that we will be far more productive if we could spend 10 to 15 minutes a day in visualisation.
You see, work can become a drudge, and drag us down especially for little cash or reward. So we tend to relax with a drink and drown our sorrows and frustrations in front of the telly or down at the pub. But if we could spend just 10 or 15 minutes visualising the happiest circumstance that comes to mind, when we were truly fulfilled and happy, we would see a remarkable change in our perception of work and life in general, becoming far more productive in the process.
This is a process that goes hand in glove with HPT which involves visualisation from the start in our concentration exercise followed by contemplation.
It is in those few moments of remembrance, of great times and feelings, that attract the same vibrations to us in huge quantities that energises us and alters our conscious mind to a feeling of worthiness, of healthiness and happiness.
So no matter what kind of meditation you engineer or follow if you only spent those few minutes of HPT in remembrance of good feelings you would accrue great benefit.
You know when we talk of Visualisation many will say immediately they have no imagination and therefore cannot visualise. But you see this process is not about conjuring something out of nothing it’s about remembering. We should all be able to remember good times, or if that is not possible think of something we like or would like to do. When we do that, instead of dwelling on the drudgery of life, we will begin to benefit. Try it. You’ll see!
Let’s face it, we all visualise or imagine. When you want to get up out of your seat and cross the room you have to visualise/imagine it first. So visualisation is not something new or magical it’s just natural and HPT will allow you to bring it into your awakened conscious mind.
