Creative Visualization is the art of using mental imagery and affirmation to produce positive changes in your life. It is being successfully used in the fields of health, education, business, athletics, and the creative arts. With more than 3 million copies sold in the U.S., and translated into twenty-five languages, this pioneering bestseller and perennial favorite helped launch a new movement in the personal growth field when it was first published twenty years ago. Completely revised and updated, Creative Visualization contains meditations, exercises, and techniques that can become part of your everyday routine to increase your personal mastery of life.
When it comes to creating the life you want, Shakti Gawain literally wrote the book. Now considered a classic, Creative Visualization teaches readers how to use their imaginations to manifest their deepest desires. In a straight-talking narrative, Gawain uses the first part to cover the basics, with chapters such as “How to Visualize,” “Affirmations,” and “Creative Visualization Only Works for the Good.” Once she shows readers how visualization actually works, Gawain moves on to loftier discussions, such as “Contacting Your Higher Self,” “Meeting Your Guide,” “Setting Goals,” and “Treasure Maps.”
Fear not; this isn’t a spiritual-lightweight book for people with a severe case of the “gimmes.” Gawain has her priorities in the right place, and she cautions readers that creative visualization will not serve greed or shallow-minded thinking. For example, she discourages the cycle of trying to have more money, so you can do what you want in life, so you will be happier. “The way it actually works is the reverse,” she explains. “You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.” Yet she also writes an excellent chapter on letting go of the misguided guilt that inhibits readers from becoming truly prosperous. –Gail Hudson
