Guided imagery is a technique, which has been used for centuries. It is being used in personal, professional and healthcare settings as a powerful tool for rapid healing, stress reduction, freedom from addictions, to simply coping with life. Relaxation is essential for imagery to be successful. Why? It allows the mind to be open and receptive to new information. Not only does it reduces muscle tension, but also enhances the production of images and triggers the unconscious, which stimulates the emotions.
Guided imagery 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 guided imagery 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 are the CD’s and Audiotapes Designed?
When using guided imagery by way of a CD or an audiotape, you incorporate someone to gently guide you. You have soothing music and/or tranquil sounds of nature. I encouraged people to focus on the “present moment”. You want to be in the here and now and to make this time of healing a priority. If possible, it is important to tune out any thoughts and ideas that may be racing around through your mind. Just focus on your breathing and relax. You can have a personal CD designed specifically for you by having a Personal Process.
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.
