The Imagery Part of Power-Imagery

The power of mental imagery is unparalleled and unrivaled in our world.  Imagery is a mental process that shows us new ways to approach life and life’s problems, establish meaningful relationships, change destructive habits, open up avenues of creative power, access inner resources of power reserves as a life force for our and others’ good.  It is a unique process in that it is independent of any external influence or intervention and at the same instant is naturally integrated with our physical functioning as a biological-mental unity, a wholeness that is naturally healing for us, bringing together the five most significant facets of our life: Physical, emotional, mental, social, moral.  All of this happens by going inward to ourselves through this inherently available power of imagery. 

The power of mental imagery is unparalleled and unrivaled in our world.  Imagery is a mental process that shows us new ways to approach life and life’s problems, establish meaningful relationships, change destructive habits, open up avenues of creative power, access inner resources of power reserves as a life force for ourselves and for others’ good.  It’s a unique process in that it’s independent of any external influence or intervention.  This means that imagery isn’t affected by anything going on outside of us.  Imagery happens by going inward to ourselves and accessing this inherently available power.  The images directly impact our physical functioning, as we are a biological-mental unity.  This mind-body wholeness is naturally healing for us, bringing together the five most significant facets of our life: physical, emotional, mental, social, moral.

Here’s an imagery exercise for you to try:  Close your eyes.  Breathe out with a long exhalation through the mouth and then normal (not deep) inhalation through your nose.  Do this 3 times.  See yourself opening a blue sky umbrella.  Hold it above you.  Know it is protecting and shielding you from whatever is distressing or disturbing you.  Get the feeling this gives and any accompanying sensations.  Breathe out and open your eyes.  Use this exercise anytime and anywhere you need it.
