Mind Power: Research Confirms Power of Visualization

I have written before about my own and others' strongly held belief in the power of visualization (for instance here and here ). Well, stop the presses. A post in Smart Economy Entitled Mind's Eye Influences Visual Perception details scientific research that has found that, to quote Smart Economy "what we see with the mind's eye directly impacts our visual perception" Smart Economy again: This is the first research to definitively show that imagining something changes vision both while you are imagining it and later on (italics mine).

There is also evidence, apparently, that the longer you visualize, the more your perception is influenced. This research may end up verifying what a lot of people thought was kind of "spooky": all the claims that repeated visualizations, guided imagery, even goal-setting, "treasure mapping", etc. do have at least some basis in scientific research.

"You'll see it when you believe it" May be truer than any of us can have imagined.
Please read the entire post.
