This free guided imagery mp3 is a mind-body intervention aimed at easing stress. It promoted a sense of peace and tranquility at a stressful or difficult time in someone’s life. It is a process of incorporating the “power of the mind” to assist the body to heal, maintain health and vitality or relax by way of an inner communication involving all senses, (i.e. visual, touch, smell, sight, sound). It forms a balance between the mind, body and spirit. It has been shown that when the mind is still, it is clear and more open to suggestions. It is then able to cooperate in positive images and suggestions that may enhance physical and emotional healing. Therefore, imagery is most successful when the mind and body are quiet and still. Imagery induces an “altered state” that enables messages to travel more easily from our minds to our bodies.
How to use guided imagery
The primary intention of this free guided imagery mp3 download is to gently and safely guide the person to a state where their mind is calm, silent and still. A common guided imagery technique begins with a general relaxation. During the process I ask the person to gently close their eyes and focus on their breathing. I encouraged to relax, clear their mind of any distractions, and surround themselves in images that are peaceful and calm.

How can imagery assist you with healthcare concerns?
Guided Imagery has had a remarkable affect on individual’s heart rate, blood pressure, respiratory rate, oxygen consumption, brain waves, body temperature, intestinal motility, sexual arousal and hormonal balances. Certain symptoms and illnesses seem to be more receptive to imagery than others. Conditions caused or aggravated by stress often respond well to imagery suggestions, (i.e., angina, blood pressure, blood sugar, cardiac symptoms, headaches, pain, gastrointestinal disorders, respiratory conditions, etc.).
“Guided imagery can be used,” writes Katherine Brown-Saltzman, “to reacquaint patients with their healthy side, give them back a measure of control, enhance their immunologic response to stress, reduce side effects of treatment and diminish anxiety and fear. For persons with cancer, guided imagery has been found to reduce or arrest the side effects of nausea and vomiting, create a relaxation response, affect the immune system, and assist in the management of anxiety, pain and terminal illness.”
Research suggests that the physiological impact of relaxation may be the result of its effects on cortisol, a hormone released by the body in response to stress. Although the release of cortisol is helpful during the “fight or flight” response, its continual, prolonged release in response to daily stresses can inhibit the immune system and slow tissue repair.

Alternative Therapies (Health and Medicine)
The belief that the power of imagination can help people heal has ancient roots. Traditional folk healers known as shamans used guided imagery to treat ailments. In Eastern medicine, envisioning well-being has always been an important part of the therapeutic process. In Tibetan medicine in particular, creating a mental image of the healing god would improve the patient’s chances for recovery. The ancient Greeks, including Aristotle and Hippocrates (“father of modern medicine”) also had their patients use forms of imagery to help them heal.
