When you are imagining/visualizing your goals, most people make the mistake of seeing an image as if it were on a movie screen, so you are looking at it.
While that’s great for fantasy type stuff and it can perhaps be an intermediate step in adding in new resources, I believe it is most powerful when a person is fully associated into an experience. You should imagine it as if you are in the picture now.
When you are looking at it as if it were a movie, you have “gone meta” to the experience. Basically you are dissociated.
One of the keys is that we want to drive people back to the primary experiences. We want them to have real life experience, not to analyze real life inside of their own heads. The thought process is great for problem solving and analysis but it’s better to be able to shut it off.
