A wonderful calming exercise is to create a meditation visualization to use as an anchor for later recall whenever you wish. Simply enjoy a beautiful moment, be it lazing on the beach, sitting among nature, watching a sunset, observing animals or anything that brings you deep and peaceful relaxation. Once you have remembered your meditation visualization in all its incredible beauty and detail think about how you can deepen and enrich every single one of your present moments. Below is an example of a meditation visualization I use with the recollections I have of the moment; often the recall is only brief, yet it is enough as a reminder to help feel instant calm. A warm day, sunlight and shadows, light pouring through tall trees yet still a cool shade and slight breeze.
You can visualize the experience as a silent movie or you can recall events with an internal commentary.
The questions can continue in order for you to drink in your surroundings in full and vivid detail. When you experiment with seeing each moment of your life as mini meditation visualizations; noticing within and without, you’ll enjoy greater moment by moment calm and presence.

Visualization meditation is the best way to refocus your mind to gain the benefits of meditation. Unlike object focused meditation, visualization meditation is a subjective visual meditation.
In our new age, mediation and visualization are increasingly becoming a part of our daily lives.
If you have never meditated or specifically visualized yourself in a better state than you are in now, then you may be wondering why you need to practice this mental exercise.
It has been discovered by several notable university studies, that visualization can physically impact your body.
If you need more information to help motivate you to begin meditating and visualization then consider the follow three keys and benefits of these two ancient mindful techniques.
Choose to give your mind and body what it so badly needs and indulge yourself in an activity that is free of charge for everyone.
Creative Visualization Meditation (free!)Posted by Andrea on November 15, 2012 to Making Dreams Real. You can’t simply bulldoze over your fears with positive thinking to get to where you want to be. But often what happens is that trying to shift into alignment with your dream only makes you very, very aware of where you are actually NOT in alignment with it.

It points the way to what needs to be healed and transformed before you can have what you want. So pay attention to what thoughts and feelings come up in response to creative visualization and make note of them, this is what you need to clean up before you can take your next step towards your dream. I believe that your dream lives at the intersection of your authenticity, creativity and purpose. What if you could gracefully navigate the path to your dream using your intuition and inner gifts, instead of working your ass off, copying what you see other people doing or taking big (scary!) risks? These resources and the daily practice of connecting with my creativity has changed my life!
It has impacted my relationships and my outlook in such a positive profound way in such a short period of time that there is no way I would ever stop playing in the Creative Dream Circle.
You can do this by raising your awareness of the moment, fully involving all your senses and reducing your thinking as you go about your day. Rustling leaves; the loudest sound, insects airborne and on the ground, birds busy and squirrels curious, coming and going, feeding at scraps on a picnic table.
The moment of calm; your meditation visualization, is a relaxation snapshot – a moment in time you can revisit often.
With practice, you’ll start seeing the richness of every moment and notice the silence that exists beneath all events. Get regular access to valuable information on meditation that you can use to improve the quality of your health and life. As it involves a high degree of 'active' involvement from the practitioner, it is often stated to be one of the most powerful tools available to effect personal change.
Just like the physical body, the spiritual mind and soul needs attention to perform at peak levels.
However, new research is proving that there are tremendous benefits to meditation, and not all of them are related to the mind.
The body responds to the commands the mind gives it, and when you practice visualization on a regular basis you train your body to believe whatever it is you would like to change.

And that bringing your dream to life is an act of healing – both for you and for the world around you.
If you fully immerse yourself in the experience you will be able to close your eyes and transport yourself back to that beautiful moment whenever you wish.
Consider your thoughts, your body and your surroundings – that is; enquire what is happening on the inside and on the outside. An alternative is to visualize one specific part of your meditation visualization such as the light through the trees or the squirrels making eye contact; a quick visual cue to return you to calm.
Surprisingly, meditation coupled with visualization can actually help heal the physical body.

For example, if you have chronic pain or suffer from depression and anxiety you can dramatically change your mental state by practicing meditation with visualization.
Meditation is a quieting of the mind, a healing of the soul, and an in-depth process that reveals your mental strengths and weaknesses. In addition to the senses, note colours, textures and oddities and explore the 5W 1H of reasons that the moment is special to you. Predominant textures wood, both hard and soft, earth and fallen leaves and a backdrop of light blue sky with variety of fascinating shapes of ever-changing clouds. If you have ever wondered how meditation and visualization can help you get clearer about what you want or how they can help your physical health, then consider the following information on these two internal health techniques. It turns out that our minds require a certain type of stimulation in order to stay focused and mentally sharp. Visualizing yourself in a calm, peaceful state causes the body to believe that you are in fact calm. As the sound of the rustling leaves on the trees fades, silence washes over my body; the birds and squirrels dance lightly in the stillness. And if you’d like to experience a guided meditation yourself you can download our free audio program right here (worth $97). Day dreaming can be considered a form of meditation wherein your mind wanders on its own with no direction from you. Soft bread sandwiches, rich aroma of coffee, mind quiet, world of nature shifting before my eyes without the need of words.
This is because meditation releases different hormones and chemicals in the brain that help it relax. However, the type of meditation we are referring to involves specific conscience effort on your part. You would agree that whatever is around us was first a thought in somebody's mind - a house, an electric appliance, a piece of intricate art, or a simple cotton garment. In the very beginning, all of them existed as an idea, as a notion, with no material reality.It took physical effort to transform the energy of the mental plane into an object in the real world. Without the confidence in your ability to achieve the desired reality, you simply will not succeed. I am not saying one should dream small, but to visualize financial independence when you are flat out broke and sinking in debt probably wouldn't get you far. Instead it would be far better to first visualize and take concrete steps toward reducing debt.
Once that is achieved, the next stage toward financial independence can then be worked upon.
