Recently I read the classic mind-body book, “Creative Visualization” by Shakti Gawain. Her book is amazing resource for those wishing to better understand how to use visualization, meditation, and affirmations to improve your life and achieve your desired goals. She provides simple exercises and examples of how to tap in to your mind-body power to create health, happiness, success, and any other goal you wish to manifest.
Here is one of my favorite meditations from her book:
The Pink Bubble Technique by Shakti Gawain
Sit or lie down comfortably, close your eyes and breathe deeply, slowly, and naturally. Gradually relax deeper and deeper.
Imagine something that you would like to manifest. Imagine that it has already happened. Picture it as clearly as possible in your mind.
Now in your mind’s eye surround your fantasy with a pink bubble; put your goal inside the bubble. Pink is the color associated with the heart, and if this color vibration surrounds whatever you visualize, it will bring to you only that which is in perfect affinity with your being.
The third step is to let go of the bubble and imagine it floating off into the universe, still containing your vision. This symbolizes that you are emotionally “letting go” of it. Now it is free to float around in the universe, attracting and gathering energy for its manifestation.
Isn’t that a wonderful meditation!
After completing the pink bubble technique with my desired goal, I decided to increase the power of the meditation and the mind-body message I wanted to send the universe by drawing a visual picture of my desired imagine and writing affirmations to claim my imagined desire as already being true for me. By adding some affirmations and a visual picture for my conscious mind to focus on I created more neural pathways for my mind and body to help me manifest my desired goal into reality.
You can use these three techniques to help you achieve your desired goals and dreams into reality.
