Shut your eyes, think of the total number of doors in your house or where you live.How did you arrive at that number?if you were not that sure, you must have used mental imagery and imagined each door. Most of us use mental imagery, to solve problems small or big in our lives.Mental imagery it’s not just visualisation, we can use imagery to create feelings and emotions. In fact, we use imagery with àll our senses, smell, taste hearing, and seeing, all our five senses, most of the time while we’re thinking.
Mental imagery has been well researched with a variety of positive and negative issues, mental and physically. The positive side being effective in our bodies, pain relief, reducing nausea, or reduction in asthma, and hot flushes, rheumatism and much much more. Help with depression, anxiety, motivation and confidence, neurosis. Many famous sports people will tell you how they use mental imagery in the positive, to be champions their particular fields.
Mental imagery is a state of self hypnosis, or mindfulness. When you listen to an e-book or you are reading a book, our minds create pictures and sounds, feelings, smells and tastes of what we’re taking in; this is multisensory. We see things in graphic detail, in nicam sound, HD that’s high-definition, 3-D and with feelings. Positive or negative these images can become real.
So what you think, is how you feel, how you feel is how you behave. Think about what you want, and you will get it; think about what you don’t want, and you’ll get that too!!!!!!!
Try these Self Hypnosis steps, to help with positive mental imagery:
