Creative Visualization is the process of using clear mental images in order to achieve positive transformation in your life.
The process is one that combines developing a sense of inner clarity with positive affirmations and training your mind to see yourself as already in possession of your desired state of being.
This process can be applied to many different areas of your life, whether you’re looking to achieve success with a business or develop your relationships or improve your health and recover from a chronic disorder.
The book is comprised of both an explanation of how creative visualization can work for you in your life, along with a series of different practices and techniques that walk you step by step through the process of applying this incredibly powerful practice.
The key, above all else, is to take the time to feel into the energy of your desired state consistently. Create a daily habit and routine around the practices suggested in the book, and Gawain’s work will have a transformative role in your life.
One of my favorite quotes from Gawain has to do with the importance of following your own inner guide, and using your energy to guide you towards right action in your life. She writes:
Every time you don’t follow your inner guidance, you feel a loss of energy, a loss of power, a sense of spiritual deadness.
By contrast, then, when you do follow your energy, you learn what it means to be fully alive and vibrant, pulsing forward with creative power, on your way to anything you could ever dream or want.
Shakti Gawain has become one of the world’s leading spiritual teachers, with a spiritual approach to how to use visualization and the law of attraction to manifest anything you choose. Creative Visualization is her seminal work, and has been a best-seller in many countries around the globe.
You can also hear an excerpt of Gawain in the following video, in which she outlines some of the basic principles of the book and gives a few suggestions for applying those principles.
