Visualisation vs Meditation - A Subtle Difference We Could All Appreciate

Read time: 1 min

What is visualisation?

Visualisation is an active mental practice, which stimulates different areas of the brain to meditation. It's a bit like how weightlifting, versus running/walking/swimming will impact your body differently. This also applies to your brain. 

What is meditation?

Meditation on the other hand is a bit like a slow walk on the beach - but for your mind. It can balance your mind, calm your nervous system, and re-ground your energy. Visualisation however can reprogramme your mind and the way you approach your life. 

A subtle but interesting difference, right?

Visualisation works by getting your mind and body ready for what you want to happen – and, just like exercise, the more you do it, the stronger it becomes.

So, how can we all practise visualisation? 

  • Create images, environments, and feelings in your mind before they have happened 

  • Write or draw exactly what you want in detail, engaging all senses 

  • Imagine the emotional outcome 

  • Take action everyday toward your desired outcome 

  • Consider your visualisation and give it time and space to develop

So this week, alongside treating your mind and body well - think about slowly including visualisation, and see what happens.

I bet the results will surprise you!
