Is Imagination Really Necessary for Achieving Your Goals?
I’ve always found imagination to be a success both personally and professionally, but now it has been scientifically proven!
Scientists at Harvard Medical School have actually discovered that the power of imagination genuinely alters the functionality and physical structure of our brains.
A relatively small study took place in the lab at the Harvard Medical School. Volunteers, under the watchful observation of neuroscientist Alvaro Pascual-Leone, took part in a rather remarkable little experiment.
The volunteers were each instructed to practise five-finger piano exercises, playing them fluidly for two hours a day for five days. The volunteers were observed and tested throughout this time to see what happens to the cortex of the brain.
After the five days, the volunteers were split into two groups. The first group carried on as normal, practising their piano exercises, able to see the piano and hear the music they were creating. The second group had to use their imaginations. The latter group needed to play their simple piece of music in their heads, focusing on imagining the sounds, the sight of the piano and the movement their hands would make.
The results were quite astounding. The same effect was observed on the brain’s motor cortex throughout the process for those who really and physically played and for those who had simply imagined it.
I get the best results when I combine coaching with guided visualisation. These sessions are so powerful and transformational. The client is generally left with a deep sense of empowerment and wonderment. I use guided visualisation techniques that connect to the Quantum field. This technique emphasises the power of the client’s imagination and the powerful bond that exists between energy and imagination.
Visualisation practises are so important in forging new neural pathways through our brains. Neuroscience has proven that, the more your mind imagines and the more your mind visualises, neural pathways grow stronger, allowing for permanent changes in your life.
The statement “Anything can happen if you put your mind to it” is true enough in this case. The more you imagine and believe something, the more real it becomes in your brain. You form a new way of being. As the neural pathways grow stronger, it weakens the old pattern of behaviour and makes the new positive behaviour stronger, until it actually becomes your natural default setting.
If you imagine yourself at peace, or in complete happiness, your brain will eventually believe it. If you imagine peace in your heart, after a while, you will really feel it. It actually happens. Your imagination with its strong link to energy, will direct itself to that part of your body and it will activate the once dormant inner peace. The more you practise this in your daily life, the easier and more effective your transformation will be.
