Practicing “Visualization” Techniques

Visualization is a self-guided therapeutic technique that can be done alone or with the help of a trained professional. Today we want to share a few basic guidelines in order to effectively practice visualization. Before that, lets discuss what this therapeutic technique can help with…
Visualization can help with:
  • Combatting nausea.
  • Anxiety. 
  • Getting through a procedure.
  • Self Healing.
  • Coping with Trauma.
  • Distancing yourself from negative feelings, memories, or people.
Basic steps to take while practicing visualization:

  • Utilize all of your sense. This is extremely important and will help with your mental images. 
  • Be present. Make sure to not take the back seat during your visualization journey. Be the driver. 
  • Keep a Journal of your experiences. Log your experiences: what worked? What did not? This would be the perfect type of thing to put in your journal we discussed last tuesday!
  • Practice! This type of self guided therapeutic technique may take some time to master, or cater to your needs.
