The power of visualization has been instrumental in turning dreams into reality for not only folks like Jim Carrey, singers, songwriters, and performers but for virtually anyone who uses this method.
Replaying the mental vision and image of where or who you would like to be is the key catalyst in swinging your vision from a mere day-dream into reality!
Science has also demonstrated that your brain cannot tell the difference between a visualized image and reality.
A Harvard study taught two groups a simple 5-fingered piano melody; one group physically practiced the melody for 2 hours a day over 5 days. The other group merely visualized playing the melody. As you can probably guess, the new neurological wiring that took place were almost identical between the two groups.
To start you may or may not want to go into an Alpha state. To do that is easy! Simply close your eyes and slightly roll them up as if you're looking at the center of your forehead. Concentrate on your breathing, listening as you breathe in and out about 5 times. You brain begins to transmit alpha brain waves that enhance your visualizations. Everything is energy. You and your thoughts are energy as well.
Here are so scriptures and quotes to help you understand why it is important to visualize what you want in life.
(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
The eye is the lamp of the body. If your vision is clear, your whole body will be full of light.
Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
For Money is NOT the Root of all Evil... It is the LOVE OF MONEY which is the root of all evil. For we all need money to survive in this world.
A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things.
1 Chronicles 4:9
And Jabez was more Honorable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow.
1 Chronicles 4:10
And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.
The meaning of the Prayer of Jabez
Jabez is asking God to bless him greatly, exceedingly, or abundantly. God can provide beyond all that you can ask or imagine. He is leaving it up to God as the to the means of the blessings. This blessing is similar to "Thy Will be done" in the Lord's Prayer.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Commit your works to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established.

Meditate and Visualize.
5 Categories of Brain Waves is why Meditation and Visualization Work so Effectively. You are energy. Your thoughts are energy which is why the Bible tells you that as a man thinks, he becomes.
1. Gamma State: (30 — 100Hz) This is the state of hyperactivity and active learning. Gamma state is the most opportune time to retain information. This is why educators often have audiences jumping up and down or dancing around — to increase the likelihood of permanent assimilation of information. If over stimulated, it can lead to anxiety.
2. Beta State: (13 — 30Hz) Where we function for most of the day, Beta State is associated with the alert mind state of the prefrontal cortex. This is a state of the “working” or "thinking mind": analytical, planning, assessing and categorizing.
3. Alpha State: (9 — 13Hz) Brain waves start to slow down out of thinking mind. We feel more calm, peaceful and grounded. We often find ourselves in an “alpha state” after a yoga class, a walk in the woods, a pleasurable sexual encounter or during any activity that helps relax the body and mind. We are lucid, reflective, have a slightly diffused awareness. The hemispheres of the brain are more balanced (neural integration).
4. Theta State: (4 — 8Hz) We're able to begin meditation. This is the point where the verbal/thinking mind transitions to the meditative/visual mind. We begin to move from the planning mind to a deeper state of awareness (often felt as drowsy), with stronger intuition, more capacity for wholeness and complicated problem solving. The Theta state is associated with visualization.
5. Delta State: (1—3 Hz) Tibetan monks who have been meditating for decades can reach this in an alert, wakened phase, but most of us reach this final state during deep, dreamless sleep.
Using Visualization for Manifestation
Visualization is an integral part of the manifesting process, the one that you use to focus the creative power within to attract the things you desire. A successful visualization is able to make our brain believe that what we’re imaging is actually happening or has happened– because it stimulates the same physiological processes as the real action.
When you visualize, do it always in the present tense, pretending that something has already happened or is happening now. Use all of our senses to enhance the feeling that what you’re imagining is real, so our mind believes that it is real. Remember: You brain cannot tell the difference between what is real and what you're visualizing.
Is it really true, the Brain tell the difference between what you're visualizing and real?
No! It's all considered experience. Whether it really happened or you imagined it, (visualized it) it is experience the brain remembers when done correctly as if you lived it or are living it in that present moment because your brain remembers all the sights, smells, colors, emotions and everyone and everything around you. The touch of the grass, the feeling you had when that person smiled, or the smell of fresh baked pie, or how the pen felt in your hand when you held it in and pressed down while signing something. Remember when you visualize USE ALL YOUR SENSES as if its happening that very moment. Then replay it in your mind and your brain doesn't know the difference and so, the universe goes out of its way to make the world around you line up to what's in your mind.
Think about it, when you think of negative things... isn't that what usually happens? It's because the energy your sending out is what the universe perceives and returns to you. Make sure to make your intent clear. What do I mean by that? Simple... let's say you want a new car. Don't worry about how the universe will deliver it, don't worry about the money you need. Just focus on your goal, the Car, as if you already have it. Feel the tires on the road as you sit with your hands on the wheel driving the road and listening to the music coming out of your new stereo system. Feel the warm wind blowing on your face, feel the sun on your arm. Check out the seats, are they leather, plush. What color are they and how does it feel to the touch? Hear the car door open and shut and hear the sound the motor. Remember all the little details and hold them in your mind.
