Visualization - creating a picture of something in the imagination - is one of the most important powers of the human mind- it helps to convey the message to the unconscious that a particular goal is possible, which prompts the unconscious to "mobilize" the latent abilities necessary to achieve it. In this inspiring and practical book, David Fontana shows how visualization can become even more powerful when practised as a form of meditation. All meditation practices give the mind a stimulus, and when a visualized image is used as that stimulus, it adds considerable force to the meditation. Meditation itself helps develop the power of concentration so that the mind can hold visualized images more clearly and consistently - and the better the concentration, the more likely it is that these images will bring results. Practising visualization within meditation has proved to be highly successful in enhancing human performance in a wide range of endeavours, such as healing one's own body, achieving athletic success, stimulating creativity, promoting career advancement and even inspiring confidence in social situations.
