Visualization is a method used to help people achieve their desired outcomes. The purpose is to obtain something in the future by imagining that you already have it now. Before anything is created it’s a simple thought first. By visualizing your desires you’re one step closer to achieving them.
Returning to your past is part of the Reunite with You journey, so when you utilize a visualization you aren’t just envisioning the future. The goal is to remember your genuine sense of self and bring it into the present moment. From there, picture or feel how you can integrate your identity so that it follows you into the future.
Before you start this visualization, find a coin and hold it in your hand. Then choose a comfortable seat somewhere you won’t be too disturbed. Finally, sit back, relax, and get ready to understand and unite both halves of the whole.

Begin by breathing deeply and find a calming pattern in your breaths. The goal is to quiet the mind and slow down your heart rate in order to better focus on the moment. Do your best to put your troubles and to-do list aside. Allow yourself to fully give in to the one thing that matters most -what you are doing right now.
Once you have found a relaxing breathing pattern and a serene state of mind, focus your attention on the coin in your hand. Take 30 seconds to 1 minute and use your senses to examine this coin. Feel the texture between your fingers. Notice any bumps on the surface or grooves on the edges. Pay attention to the metallic smell and how hot or cold it is from sitting in your hand.
Now, look at the contrasting visuals on either side of the coin. Note the different designs, but how underneath it all it’s still the same coin. If you couldn’t feel or see the differences, would you know which side was which? Keep this intriguing thought in your mind as you close your hand and turn your attention back towards your breath.
Focus on returning to your deep, calming breathing pattern and begin to contemplate the concept of an energetic coin.
Visualize an opposing force, such as light and dark, up and down, or fire and water. Choose a pairing that has some significance to you and is easy to imagine. Then in your mind’s eye, envision these two forces as separate entities sitting on a see-saw. Picture the natural rhythm of their mutual give and take as the forces constantly exchange power. As one goes up, the other must go down -and vice versa. Continue to visualize these opposing forces caught in a cycle of capturing the spotlight for another 3-5 breaths.
Now, envision the see-saw being turned upright until it stands straight towards the sky. So instead of the opposing forces being on either end, they are now side by side. The only separation is a single, thin line. They’ve become two sides of the same coin. Imagine what happens as the forces continue to swap power. Does the coin start to flip? Or does their shared energy pull them closer together? Either way, they are stuck together -united. What happens to one side causes a reaction to the other.
Think back to the experience of observing your coin. Remember all of the shared qualities on both sides, with the only difference being the design. So from here on out, apply this same mindset to any and all opposition in your life. Start to see differences as a part of unity instead of duality. While opposites may seem to oppose, consider that they’re really on the same team -they just have different strengths.
