Visualization is one aspect of the Law of Attraction. In simple terms, it is as the name implies. You create a visual image in your brain. It is used to help the universal mind, discover what you want. But, if random thoughts were all it took to get what we want out of the Law of Attraction, we’d have deliveries of stuff coming to our houses on a daily basis.
Another factor to consider is that we think in terms of positive and negative imagery. If it were as simple as getting whatever your thoughts show, you would get a lot of bad things as well as good. And it is true that people who focus primarily on the negative tend to have more negative aspects of their lives occur. The conclusion is it takes more than just random thoughts to make it work.
Visualization techniques help set your mind to create clear images of what you are looking for. As you continue to create those images, it is easier for them to be picked up by the Universe. While this sounds like a strange concept, it is not new. It has been around since the late 19th century, and some believe even earlier than that.
If you are skeptical about this concept, think back to a time when someone who you haven’t seen in a while pops into your head. You see their mental picture quite clearly. Then, a short time later, you receive a communication from them, either in the form of an email or a call. Often, they have some big news to tell you (hopefully good).
The question you have to ask is, did you come up with the image of that person or did they do so and transmit their need to contact you? It’s likely you had this experience several times in your life. If you haven’t, there are plenty of others who can attest to it and may even be able to tell you the people it happened with.
Something else that happens to people is when someone they know well dies. They seem to know the moment it happens. They visualize the person in their head and know something is not right and then when they find out the person died, they make the connection. It is an odd sensation, but it gives some credibility to the Law of Attraction in general, and visualization specifically.
