A house of our dreams is different for each of us, and even if, by chance, we happen to want the same house, we would probably have different ideas on what makes that house so perfect. Your dream house doesn’t even need to be a different house to the one you are living in right now – it might be the house you’d like your current home to be, with different colors and furniture, maybe one more window…
Visualizing a dream house is a perfect way to learn exactly what you want it to look like if you’re not sure yet – if the visualization isn’t inspiring a strong emotion in you, or if it slips into something undesirable (the thought of flood, for example), then probably the house you’re visualizing isn’t the right one for you after all.
If you haven’t done so yet, we recommend that before you start with this visualization, you read our article How to visualize and other articles listed in the core section about visualization and law of attraction to get a better idea on why these steps are important for successful visualizing.
The goal of this exercise is for you to visualize the house of your dreams, and to feel what it would be like living in it.
- Specify your goal: think about what kind of house would make you feel like you’re home: a huge, luxurious villa or a cottage, near the sea or on the mountain, in the city or in the wildness.
- Choose at least one image to keep in your mind before you start visualizing: what exactly in that house would symbolize the feeling of home to you. Picture some situation of yourself in that house that makes you feel relaxed. For this exercise, let’s say that your dream home is a huge house near the ocean side, with pool and seven bedrooms. The scene that we’ll visualize is the one of you preparing a lemonade in the kitchen and walking out to the pool where your children are playing.
- Set a schedule and find a quiet place for your visualization. Find a comfortable place where nobody will disturb you for 20-30 minutes, and try to stick to the schedule every day.
Steps to visualizing your dream house
- Relax. Clear your mind. Sit in a relaxed position, close your eyes, take deep breaths, and focus on your breathing. Slowly count to ten.
- Break visualization down into senses. You should start to slowly picture the details in your new house. What is the color on the walls, how many windows are there in the living room, are they big? In the kitchen, what does the sink look like? Do you have a dishwasher? Picture the cup that you’re taking to prepare the lemonade for your family. Now listen – do you hear the air conditioner, the sound of your kids laughing from the outside? Introduce the touch: what does the cup in your hand feels? Feel the marble on the kitchen counter. The lemonade that you’ve prepared, taste it – is it sweet enough? Can you smell the flowers through the open kitchen window?
- Third person view. Now imagine yourself taking the lemonade, pouring it into glasses, taking it out to the poolside. Look around you – what the door to the yard look like? You’re approaching your children and putting the lemonade on the small table – they can drink it when they get out of the pool. You look around you. It’s a beautiful day.
- First person view. You feel calm because you’re feeling completely relaxed and comfortable in your home; it’s your home, and you’re grateful for it. Let all of your senses feel the joy of this beautiful day, in your house, with your kids.
- Wrap it up. You can let the image fade now, slowly.
