Why Visualization Is So Powerful

18 Jun 2009

I read that neuroscientists did research that proves visualization to be so powerful.  In the experiment they showed objects to people.  At the same time they measured which parts of the brain were activated.  The people in the study were then asked to close their eyes and picture the objects themselves.  Did you guess?  Yes, the same areas of the brain were activated as before.  The researchers concluded that our brains donít distinguish between real and imagined objects. 

Reflect on the times you have visualized something and how that came about in your life.
