You see, your unconscious mind is designed to seek and recognize patterns. So when the mind perceives or senses something that feels familiar, it will gravitate towards that situation or choice. Even when our conscious mind wants to choose otherwise.
When our unconscious perceives the choice or situation that will allow it to remain in its default pattern or comfort zone, it will "perceive" that option as safe (To the unconscious mind, on the most basic level, "safe" means alive.). And so we continue in patterns we don't like.
One of the most powerful--and easy!--ways to shift the unconscious mind's perception is through the power of visualization. When we practice visualizations, two things happen:
- We become connected to a vision of what we want and our mind begins to perceive that as a potential reality. In this way, it becomes easier for our mind to recognize/perceive it in our waking lives, making your unconscious ready to make the shifts you've been waiting for.
- We harness the power of our intuition. We live in a world where we're so much in our heads that we've lost touch with our hearts and our intuitions. Visualization is a great way to tap into this immense power we have inside of us. The poet, Rumi, said "Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." By accessing your intuition through visualization, you can tap into your deep knowing and uncover beliefs about love that are keeping you stuck.
In my private sessions with my clients, I often take them through a visualization; they are consistently surprised by what comes up. Your unconscious mind is powerful and ready to be your partner in this journey. By adding visualizations into your daily routine, you will support your desire to have a different love experience.
