Imagery and DecisionMaking Process

January 8th, 2010 // 5:26 pm @

Decisions, decisions – sometimes it can be really hard to decide between different options when we have make and are not sure what would be the best one for you. An easy way to help you make up your mind is to use your imagination (Einstein said imagination was more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited while our imagination is limitless!). Here are some simple steps to help you find the solution to your problem. Let’s say you are thinking of three different career choices.

1. First find about 5 to 10 minutes for yourself without interruptions. Now close your eyes and imagine, pretend or make believe you are doing one of the careers. Notice how you feel as you imagine yourself working in this career. How do you feel working with the people, the responsibilities of this job, the social interaction or lack thereof, emotional satisfaction, monetary compensation etc. Notice how you feel physically within your body. Certain situations may make you feel light, open or perhaps you may notice shoulder tightening up or stomach pulling in while you are visualizing yourself going through your scenario. Now notice how you feel emotionally – are you content, happy, feel good about yourself or do feelings of frustration, annoyance, lack of challenge perhaps creep in more than you like. The final test is to see how it affects you spiritually (forget if you have any religious beliefs or not – this is all about your social consciousness or humanitarian values. How does this choice affect your spirit or soul in the larger scheme of things.
2. Write down your observations to keep track. You can do your second choice either the same time or save it and do it within a few days again repeating all the steps. Repeat doing your third.
3. After you have imagined yourself in all the different situations, you should have a clear idea of which is the best choice for you to pursue. You are checking your conscious ideas in with your subconscious or unconscious mind and getting a clear reality check on what will best make you happy. Try it when you have some choices to make. You will find that the answers to your questions are waiting for you right there in the magic of your mind!
