Creative visualization is all about using the energy of the mind through the internal functioning of sense organs to achieve our objective. It is particularly beneficial in the context of both physical and psychological healing. In creative visualization, sense organ leads the function and is the most important organ. Other sense organs support the eye in this function. Apart from healing, creative visualization is used for achieving wealth, happiness, prosperity or any other desire.
There are two types of creative visualization
- Symbolic visualization is based on symbols which a person can relate to
Where you are today is the direct result of all the thoughts, emotions and actions of your past.
Creative Visualization is a powerful tool to assist with creating and maintaining a state of good health. We can separate our physical bodies from our mind and our mind is constantly sending messages to our body about the environment in which we live in. We are now realizing that our state of mind can affect our physical bodies.
When you use Creative Visualization things happen that are simply unexplainable.
Your instincts or gut feelings become stronger and more accurate. Everyday you notice incredible co-incidences. You feel compelled to try new, creative endeavors. You feel a sense of serenity and a detachment from petty problems. Many people find that their eyes look a little different, clearer or lighter. You begin to have days when you wake up feeling really excited about something and then you realize, â€˜You have Joy – for no reason at all.
What are the steps involved in creative visualization?
- Decide what you want. Get clear on all the details and write them down.
- Make a list of negative or opposing thoughts that you know you have.
- Relax your body and mind.
- Imagine a place, situation or a person that brings a positive emotion.
- Imagine your main goal in as much detail as you can.
- Channelise the energy from atmosphere to your goal.
- Continue the exercise for few minutes every day.
How does this help in curing diseases?
In this method the individual is made to understand the incidence or problem he/she is having in his/her body or mind, the emotion faced by the individual at the time of incident. We frame positive learning from the incident and that is made to visualize in the mind in the subconscious level. This process helps to remove the suffering/negative energy out of the individuals inner self and so cures the disease.
If we are suffering physically, often it is a way for our bodies to say you need to examine this in more detail. So for many Creative Visualization can assist them to heal their own bodies.
With the pressures and stresses of modern society, we are increasingly finding it difficult to slow down the mental activity of our conscious mind. It is the practice of Visualization which can assist us to divert our conscious mind and begin to focus on the sub conscious. Our conscious mind often holds on to range of preconceived ideas and conditioning that we have received throughout our lives and this can prove to be limiting.
We are aware of the fact that the sense organs help us perceive the external world. But not many of us know that their functions extend beyond this. We learn either instinctively or are taught, how to use these faculties. But we don’t know how to use them to tap divine energy or perceive things in the more subtle sense. For instance our skin can help us perceive touch or feeling. Feeling need not be restricted to hot or cold it may also be higher feelings like feeling good or feeling bad.
