The Power of Visualization in Healing

by Dr. Bobbie Stevens on August 8, 2011

Few people understand the power of visualization.  Professional athletes have discovered how powerful it is to visualize themselves practicing and winning their games, and they use this technique on a regular basis.

If we understand how visualization works, we too can use it to help us create whatever we chose in our lives, but today we want to explore how it works to help heal our bodies.  Visualizing is simply imagining something.  Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge”.

When we are visualizing something we are experiencing that vision, and the body takes orders from the mind, so when we see ourselves doing something in our minds our body respond.  When athletes cannot practice they visualize themselves practicing and studies show that it is almost as effective as actually practicing.

Our entire bodies respond to our thoughts, and when we are living something in our imagination the body believes it is real and reacts accordingly.  Therefore, it is very powerful to use our imagination for visualizing optimal health for ourselves.  To help a particular area of your body heal itself it is most valuable to spend some time each day seeing that area functioning perfectly.

If your problem prevents you from doing things you want to do, see yourself doing what you want to do.  Feel what it feels like to be able to move in a certain way or feel certain sensations or whatever is appropriate for you.  Just let your mind wonder and really enjoy what you are creating.

When we understand that everything on the physical or material level of life is energy, it gets easier to understand how visualization works.  It is actually our thoughts, beliefs, expectations and where we focus our attention that directs and forms energy.  Everything in existence is simply energy being expressed in different forms.

Therefore, when we create a vision in our minds the law of attraction attracts the necessary energy to fulfill that vision.  This is indeed how we create our experiences and if we can understand how it works we can be in charge of creating what we want rather than just accepting, as inevitable, whatever happens to us.

The power to create our experiences is all within us.  That doesn’t mean that things do not happen in our lives that we never anticipated, but it does mean that we can do things to make changes in our bodies and our experiences.

Our true nature is perfect health, and our minds and bodies are always trying to create or maintain that perfection.  The body will heal itself given the opportunity, and there are many things we can do to help provide that opportunity.

Many years ago I discovered a process that releases the stress that gets built up in our bodies and damages our nervous systems and our immune systems.  This is a healing, strengthening process, and when practiced daily over time helps the body to heal itself and strengthen itself.

I created a program that we now call our Core Course which helps people heal the damage that stress causes in our entire mind/body systems, and also strengthen the nervous system which will in time move one into a much more advanced level of functioning.

I have described this process in detail and provided diagrams and step-by-step guidelines for using it in my book entitled Unlimited Futures: How to Understand the Life You Have and Create the Life You Want. In this book you will discover how to use visualization as a part of a process for creating whatever you chose.  We call it the 7 steps in the creative process.

I have also created a CD, DVD and a Companion Workbook to help you get started working with the process.  We now also have our Core Course on DVDs so you can do the course in the comfort of your own home.  You may download a free introductory session of this course by simply clicking in the box on the side of this page requesting it.

Once you start experiencing this healing and strengthening you will want to accelerate the process, so we also provide courses that you can attend to accelerate this natural evolutionary process.
