There are times that no matter how hard we try to correct something about our appearance, it seems that nothing works. Whether we are trying to lose a bit of weight, gain a bit of weight, find the right hairdo, or simply do something about our entire persona, we struggle to no effect. Perhaps it’s time to try a bit of visualisation to accomplish what nothing has ever achieved.
What Exactly Is Visualisation?
Over the past several decades, there have been many paths to visualisation. It really all stems from the concept that how you see yourself impacts how you relate to the world around you. It’s a way of reprogramming the mind, if you will so that you can become the person you want to be. It’s often a series of meditations or daily affirmations you focus on that affirm who you are, who you want to be, and ways to get where you want to be. Sometimes called ‘creative visualisation,’ it’s all about affirming the beautiful person you really are.
Enter Technology for Visualisation
In recent years there has come an advancement in technology through which you can literally visualise yourself in a new look. Perhaps it’s how you look with different hair colour and maybe it’s how you would look if you didn’t have that underbite or misaligned front teeth. One UK website, Straight My Teeth, offers a 3-D rendition of how your teeth would look if aligned, for instance. Check out their Smile Studio to see how you would look with the corrections you need. Just visit their dentist for a 3-D scan and then after viewing the rendition you can get custom made aligners delivered to you. It’s amazing what technology can do to help you get that smile you deserve.

Back to the Beginning
Even with all that said and done, the first thing you need to do is an honest introspection so that you have a realistic awareness of what you actually feel. You need to be ready to face any truths you have been unable to face in order to combat them through visualisation. Think of it as a recipe. You know, for example, that you want to bake a cake but, after baking it, you are not happy with the results. What don’t you like? What ingredients could you have added to enhance the flavor or texture? That’s an honest assessment of anything you would like to change and it’s the beginning of any successful visualisation. You can visualise the cake as it should have tasted, now, what can you do about it?
You really can lose that weight or firm up that bust if you visualise the end result. It doesn’t mean that you don’t need to do anything to alter it, but it does mean that visualisation is the recipe for success. In the words of the famed 19th century British philosophical writer, James Allen, “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” With the heart-mind connection, you can achieve the look you are after.
