Guided Imagery for Self Healing
Guided Imagery for Self Healing: I'm a daydream believer, and I hope you are, too! So often, we're all too good at imagining bad stuff. We worry about money, health, relationships, etc. This worry wreaks all kinds of havoc in our bodies. Sometimes we get headaches, stomach aches, back aches....all because of the fearful world we've created in our minds.
Have you ever woken up from a bad dream with your heart racing and some shortness of breath? That bad dream seemed so real. That's because to your brain it was. All the senses that were engaged during that bad dream made your brain believe that the dream was really happening.
Guided Imagery for Self Healing:
So how can we use our powers for good?
The good news is that we can use this powerful imagination to tell the brain that good things are happening! When we become relaxed and slow down our brainwaves, we can engage our senses into creating wonderfully relaxing states, healing states.
Leave the nightmares behind and start daydreaming using guided imagery.
Guided Imagery for Self Healing: How does it work?
With guided imagery, you are guided by listening to someone describe a scene. Maybe this scene is of you walking in the beautiful countryside or splashing around in the ocean. The guide is prompting you to imagine a scene while using all your senses. The more senses to can imagine using, the more readily your brain will believe that the scene is real.
Guided Imagery for Self Healing: What's the point?
When you get into a more relaxed state, your brainwaves slow down. We slow our brainwaves down when we take deep breaths, meditate, and do hypnosis. By turning inward and slowing down our brainwaves, we calm down the limbic system - the flight or fight fear system in the brain. In turn, we also strengthen the prefrontal cortex - the part of the brain where we focus and make decisions.
So, you can understand why engaging regularly in activities such as guided imagery, hypnosis, and meditation are desirable for the brain: Essentially, we're calming down fear and boosting focus and good decisions. Guided imagery, hypnosis, meditation, and brain entrainment are all close friends - these are powerful tools for brain change!
Guided imagery can be extremely beneficial for relieving stress, improving brain function and
providing a better sense of well-being. It's easy to do, and doesn't take long. I love shortcuts to self-improvement like this!
