VAK to the Future: Manifest Your Heart’s Desire with a Visioning Exercise

September 14 article pic

Beautiful, is there something that your heart is calling for that you haven’t yet achieved or experienced?

Visualization is a powerful tool you can use daily to bring yourself into the vibration of that which you desire. The key is to clearly picture in your mind’s eye the experience you want with SPECIFIC details (here’s a tip for you doll – imagine you are taking a snapshot of your desired thingie -what would be in the pic? Think colors, clothing, environment, body language, ANYTHING that you would see visually that would indicate this desire has manifested).

Many of you know visualization is important but you may not have a full understanding of WHY it’s important – basically because the brain thinks in pictures AND the subconscious is sensory based.

Even knowing that though, have you ever had the experience of visualizing, thinking you are doing everything right, only to be disappointed that your heart’s desire has not yet manifested? I certainly have.

Then I came across the key to manifestation and I want to share it with you because I know how frustrating it can be not to get the results you expected. Thoughts like, “This stuff doesn’t work” or, “Why isn’t this working for me?” flooding your mind.

Fortunately there is a formula to get lift off on your desire. It’s simple. There is a way to rocket charge what you crave – bringing it the magic momentum necessary to bring it into existence, pronto!!

I take my clients through a POWERFUL 3-step process called “VAK to the Future” that helps them hook into the vision on a deep level.

VAK= Vision, Auditory, Kinesthetic. Remember we talked about the subconscious being sensory based? Well research has shown these are the top three senses to combine to fuel your desire into manifestation. The idea is to create an internal picture and experience that puts you in the place of already having what you want, and the results have been brilliant.

One client told me she wanted to meet someone, so we went through the process…

We started with her concisely stating her desire.

        After that was in place the first step was for her to create three clear pictures in her mind down to the very details:

a. A picture of a cozy night in she would spend with her new love, making dinner and drinking wine sitting across from him at the dinner table.

b. A picture of holding hands with him on an evening walk.

c. And a picture of them both embracing each other lovingly.

Next, she described what she heard other people saying about her new relationship. Her friends said things like, “Wow, Rachel is so in love – I’m so happy she found such a perfect partner!”

Finally she connected with how she would feel if this were true.

Putting all the pieces together, I walked her through a guided visualization and told her to reimagine all these images every day.

I wasn’t surprised when in a short time she told me she had met someone special!

When you can imagine yourself inside the heady experience of already having the wonderful things you would love, they will come into your life quickly. What are you dreaming of that hasn’t come into fruition just yet? It’s time to start visioning sparkle sister!

    Thank you Sherri for a great article and reminder to visualize. I sometimes struggle with staying focused on my “dream journey” or visualizations….I have shiny light syndrom. ;0)

      I can relate to the “shiny light syndrome,” as you put it so well! We all get distracted from our goals from time to time, which is why it’s so important to set boundaries with ourselves!

    This was a very good article…I guess I need to develop patience and trust in the process…I have the clarity of what I would like in my next relationship…I have images of what I want it to be like…but connecting auditory and feelings is something I would not have thought to do
