What do you think? Should you Visualize in the 1st or 3rd person? Both methods are valuable and helpful for different reasons – but if you use the wrong method at the wrong time, you’ll be well into your next lifetime before you manifest what you want.
Before I go there, let me explain what I mean by the 1st and 3rd person.
1st person would be through your own eyes, or in an associated state. In this case you are in fact the dreamer doing the visualization.
3rd person would be from outside your body, or in a disassociated state. In this case you’re the observer – or ghost – watching the dreamer.
Visualizing as the dreamer triggers the emotional or subconscious mind to develop feelings for the things you want. This feeling triggers a change in vibration. Attraction is preceded by vibration. Get into the right vibration and you will attract the things you want.
How do you change your vibration?
By changing your feelings. Here is a quick test to do exactly that.
Just be the observer at this point. Imagine that you’re on the beach somewhere hot, maybe the Caribbean. Now picture yourself sitting on the beach, lying in the sand staring up into the sky. Notice how you feel.
This time become the dreamer. Actually step inside your body and look through your own eyes. Feel the heat radiating from the sunshine and the sand beneath your feet. Hear the waves crashing upon the shore line and the breeze whispering in your ear. See the beautiful colors in the sky and the brightness of the sun. How did you feel this time?
Remember that being in the dreamer state is the way to develop powerful feelings. Being the observer helps you distant yourself – or move away from experiencing your feelings.
If you don’t trigger feelings during your visualization, you won’t attract the things you want. You see, your subconscious mind “speaks” in emotions. It doesn’t understand much of anything else. The more often you create powerful feelings, the more frequent you are speaking to your subconscious mind. That’s how you change your vibration.
Be mindful that your feelings are representative of your vibration. A stronger feelings indicates a higher vibration. And when you vibrate at a higher frequency you become a magnet for things to come to you.
3rd Person Visualization
Visualizing as the observer has it’s benefits too. Here are a few to consider:
- As the observer you can see yourself in a new light when dealt with challenges; a new perspective is sometimes all you need to tackle tough obstacles.
- Being the observer allows you to distance yourself from negative feelings. In some situations this can provide more clarity and calmness of mind. And with calmness of mind comes better thinking power.
Remember, as emotions fall, intelligence rises;
- You can uncover blind spots by being the observer. Think of it this way. When you see the faults in others it’s very obvious to you. You can’t understand why others don’t see this in themselves. Being the observer allows you to see how others see you. It might be all you need to uncover those areas that are unknown.
- When you’re the observer you can add more clarity to your clear mental image. Maybe there are details you hadn’t considered when looking through the eyes of the dreamer. Be the observer to notice the things you haven’t yet noticed.
Regardless of which method you use, both are important. Learn how to use them both. Become masterful at visualizing as the observer and the dreamer and dream big dreams. Interested in more tips on visualization? Subscribe to my blog updates here.
