5 Ways to Visualize Yourself to Better Health

5 Ways to Visualize Yourself to Better Health
Visualization is a very powerful tool, and you can use it to help your body and mind heal in a variety of ways. Also known as “guided imagery” or “creative visualization,” it essentially requires you to use your imagination!

However some adults have lost the ability to use their imagination, or at least dismiss their imagination as no longer important now that the hum drum of life and paying bills has taken up more space in their minds. This needs to be remedied straightaway!

Using your imagination is easier than you might think. Children naturally use their imagination every day, but as adults, we typically lose this ability over time. You use your imagination every time you daydream or get lost in thought.

Every time you dream of a better future before dismissing it as impossible to reach. But by learning to take control of your imagination and by expanding it, you will feel much more calm and carefree, and you can even visualize your way to better health and prosperity.

Researchers over the years have long since found out that physical thoughts affect our health. Many ancient civilizations used mind-body techniques to harness the power of the imagination. Guided imagery is actually used in more than 3,000 hospitals nationwide in the US, and it is a growing trend. 

Guided imagery can help you feel better, feel more confident, alleviate pain, help you cope with the side effects of medication and even help someone overcome debilitating diseases. It is a very powerful tool! Here are 5 different visualizations that you can practice for better health:

1) Self-Healing Visualization

There are many techniques one can use to heal the mind and body. One way is to imagine your body self-healing:

 • You can begin with a simple progressive relaxation method, where you tighten and release each muscle of the body starting at the feet and working your way upward.

• Once this relaxed state is achieved, you can picture your pain or disease as dark spots in your body and visualize them being washed away by a peaceful, calming light.

• Imagine a blue or soft green light coming down through your body, swirling and touching the edges of the dark problem areas, removing toxins, waste and even unhealthy cells from your body.

2) Deep-Breathing Visualization

Breathing is remarkably healing, in fact it is one of the most powerful things we can do to take control of our thoughts and ground us again, especially if we’re feeling anxious or negative. But you can also do it to imagine your body being cleansed from toxins or illness:

Simply take two-three very deep breaths. • Imagine the breath moving through your body, gathering up damaged cells.

• As you inhale, imagine your breath is cleaning your body.

• As you exhale, imagine the breath is carrying away toxins and disease.

• You can even imagine your exhaled breath as a dark gray color and your inhaled breath as a beautiful white color.

• Repeat until you feel your breath has cleansed your body.

3) Beach Visualization

A great visualization for relaxation as well:

Take yourself to a very relaxing place and allow your body to let go and release strain and tension.

• See yourself on a beautiful beach, walking along in the warm, white sand.

• Feel the sea air and the warm sun.

• Imagine the light of the sun is healing your body.

• See the sun’s powerful rays moving over your body, purging and relaxing you to better health.

4) Pain Visualization

If you are in pain, be it physical or mental:

Take yourself to that same relaxing place and use your imagination to dial down your pain.

• Imagine you have access to a large volume knob and see yourself dialing down your pain. If your pain is a 10, see yourself lowering your pain to a more manageable number, like a two or a three.

• You can also imagine your pain is being locked away in a steel box. See yourself gathering up your pain and locking it away and burying it.

• You can also send your pain up into a hot air balloon and watch it drift away.

5) Serious Illness Visualization

First and foremost, if you are seriously ill I recommend you seeking out modern medical treatments by qualified doctors and other health staff. Nonetheless practicing this visualization can help your recovery:

Imagine your illness is like an army of invaders in your body.

• See yourself sending an army of soldiers into your body.

• You can visualize this army gobbling away your illness and restoring you to perfect health.

The Power of the Mind

The mind is a very powerful tool, and you can use it to help your body heal. Simply take a few deep breaths, close your eyes and use your imagination however you like.
