My friend recently sent me a tape of of Shakti Gawain's great book Creative Visualisation.  It took me a few listens to really get into it and every so often the chapters pop up on the random shuffle play on my iPhone.  One of the exercises is about creating your future and imagining what it will be like.  I used a similar exercise with groups over the last two days and it reminded me just how powerful it is for people to step into the future and imagine it as if it is happening now.

Because our imagination does not distinguish between real or imagined situations, once you have imagined the future, the subconscious then begins to work on making it a reality.  So think about what you want in your future – what you are seeing, hearing and feeling when it is happening.  Then when it becomes a reality you are not surprised because you have been there before….in your mind.
