Creative visualization is a mental technique that uses the imagination to make dreams come true, which in turn reduces or eliminates stress around the "not having". Creative visualization can improve our life and attract success and prosperity. It is a power that can alter our environment and circumstances, cause events to happen, and attract money, possessions, work, people and love into our life.
The subconscious is incredibly powerful, representing five-sixths of our brain's thinking and power. To achieve success consistently and effortlessly, you must align your subconscious mind with what you want to create in your life and let go of past programming. If your subconscious beliefs conflict with the outcomes you're consciously affirming, you're guaranteed to fail. The subconscious wins ... every time. An ideal time to visualize is in the morning and before sleep, perhaps after meditating.
Visualize what you want. Your subconscious can't tell the difference between a real and imagined event. When it "sees" what you want to achieve, it will find ways to make your dreams come true. The same works regarding stress. "Act as if" and visualizing "it" daily works wonders. For instance, if you are stressed that you are overweight and a goal is to lose 10 pounds, visualize your self at that weight- in those clothes. Act as if you are already losing the weight and do not go on the scale. Simply smile, exercise and eat well to "maintain" your lost weight.
Here's another example: You know you need a
vacation and can't imagine taking the time off. Well, do exactly
that in your mind, and in real time act as if you are going-
Try making a "mind map" and view it throughout the day:
Write the word vacation in a circle on a paper and draw lines of branches and paths that are the details of the vacation connecting to the circle. You may use colored pencils and markers- make it a fun activity. Mindmapping is a great tool to fast forward any visualization into reality.

Interview with Melissa Zollo, Author of Discover the Power of
Imagination: Part 1
Melissa Zollo is an imagist, speaker, self-motivation specialist, and author of various CD audio programs: Discover the Power of Imagination, The Art of Intentional Creation, and How to Unleash the Power Within and Attract Money. In this interview, she talks about why people often lock their minds to success and the common reasons why this happens. She also talks about her programs and techniques.
I'm intrigued by your website's tagline, "Unlocking Minds to Create New Realities". How do we unlock our minds and why do they become locked in the first place?
The entire Universe lives in our deeper mind but many of us are just beginning to realize who we are and what we are capable of creating. Our lives are shaped and influenced by the quality of our thoughts and mental images yet many suffer from the impairment of the imaginative process. They are imprisoned in thought patterns and unwanted habits that they learned or acquired. "Unlocking Minds to Create New Realities" refers to discovering the process of manifestation and the unfailing laws that determine our failure or success in life. The greatest treasure in life is locked within the depths of our consciousness. The Treasure House I am speaking of exists in the realm of ideas. To free ourselves from anything that blocks our path to wealth, happiness, success, and health demands that we take charge of our thoughts and control our thinking.
In order to eradicate a negative message that was programmed into our minds, we must have a desire for something greater, look within ourselves and take action by re-programming ourselves until we build a new belief. Once we know how to harness the power of our imagination, we can learn how to free ourselves from limiting habits and attract the fulfillment of our dreams. Your mental images, thoughts, and feelings are controlling your destiny so it is vital to take complete control over mental blueprints and emotional moods. Once we know how to bring the incredible power of our conscious and subconscious mind under our direction and how to formulate the mental equivalent of our dreams and goals we become master of destiny rather than a victim of circumstances and the past.
We were unconscious or unaware of the power of the mental over the physical. At an early age, each one of us was impressed by suggestions from others. Since we did not have the tools or the awareness to protect ourselves from the endless stream of negative messages, we accepted many ideas that hindered our growth and imprisoned our potential to create, laugh, enjoy, and live a full, rich, and rewarding life. But that was then and this is now. Now we each have the power to examine the origin of our beliefs and see if they play a significant part in bringing about health, happiness, success, and peace of mind. We can accept or reject suggestions. Negative suggestions from the media, organizations, newspapers, and other people will no longer hold you captive and have power over you unless you accept the suggestion.

Imaginative Woman Soars to Greatness
By Theresa Sweeney
(Published in the Happy Herald Newspaper)
“Are you ready to soar?” asks Melissa Zollo, one of the world’s most listened to authors on personal and professional success and self-empowerment. Melissa knows that we all have a personal money, health, success, and relationship blueprint ingrained in our subconscious mind and it is this image that influences our success in life.
Melissa’s work in imagery evolved from her struggle to overcome childhood trauma. The rejection, pain, loss, and abuse she suffered caused her to fear life and to back away from her dreams. “Most of my early life I surrendered to other people’s beliefs about who I was. I had beautiful dreams, but was surrounded by harshness that wounded my creative heart and crippled my self confidence,” she says. By the age of 21, though, Melissa was determined to regain her life. “I no longer wanted to be smothered by my inner conflicts or by people with no vision,” she says.
Melissa discovered the power of the subconscious mind; the power of suggestion and the Universal Law of Attraction, Polarity, and Vibration. She became aware that imagination created reality. “Soon I believed it was possible to rebuild myself from within,” she says. “I realized that belief is the law of life and images, feelings and thoughts create (be they desirable or undesirable thoughts.) I learned that fear is a ‘desertion of trust’ in the Healer Within and that most of us are suffering from ‘amnesia of the soul’.”
These discoveries helped Melissa release her self-doubt and gain confidence in who she was. When she connected with her innate intelligence and imagined the results she wanted to experience she soared. She says that the process taught her that nothing happens to us by chance, or some outside power; that there is an art to personal fulfillment and an art to intentionally realizing our dreams; and that the process for restoring and healing our memory and unleashing the power of our deeper mind is not only possible, it is our spiritual birthright.
“For thirty years, I focused on ‘cracking the mystery’ behind miracles of healing, be they financial, personal, or related to health,’ she says. “Upheavals came to test my grit, but I became emboldened by these challenges. I learned that all of y dreams had the potential to be realized and that all things are possible to achieve, in spite of opposition and obstacles, if only I persisted to believe in myself and the Power Within”.
Melissa now embraces her journey of awakening and encourages others to feel their joy, awaken their potential, and connect to the Healer Within. She created a company, Present Memory LLC, because she wanted to share the ‘code to change” with others. “My goal is to help others pursue their dreams with passion, purpose and inner conviction to succeed,” says Melissa. Her client base includes CEO’s and professionals from the fields of Finance, Health, Publishing, Entertainment, and the Arts. Melissa regularly receives testimonials from people saying how her ideas have helped them heal from an illness, overcome debt, increase their income, or simply live more passionate joyful lives. Deborah Corbin, a physical therapist in Massachusetts, is one such success story.
When she was diagnosed with Autoimmune Hepatitis her doctor believed she had an incurable disorder and told her that Autoimmune Hepatitis doesn’t just go away. After hearing Melissa speak and sharing the admonition that there are no incurable diseases, only people with incurable ideas, Deborah decided to develop a health blueprint (something she learned how to do at Melissa’s seminars) and reverse the effects of her negative thinking. Using Melissa’s Discover the Power of Imagination audio program every day, Deborah imaged a health scenario in her imagination. “Then it happened exactly as I had imagined it,” she says. “My liver tests went from twice the normal numbers to normal. My doctor had no way to justify what had happened. I cured myself.” Melissa hears storied like this a lot and it further convinces her that we all have untapped healing ability within.
Melissa has been a featured guest on “Integrative Wellness” WPKN 89.5 FM. She has also a featured guest on Wealth4U in Spirit and is often heard on other nationally broadcast shows.
“Learn to Image First and you will start attracting, producing, and increasing your success results,” she says. “Never close a door on a dream – your dreams are calling you!”
