How Guided Imagery Can Help You
Have you ever had a dream so real that you wake up in a daze, not knowing whether it really happened or if it was merely a dream? Your dream might have been about finally reaching that goal you’ve been working towards, solving a puzzle that has been plaguing you, or just finding a quiet moment all to yourself without the rush of everyday life poking at you. This imagery can also be accomplished without the aid of sleep. The power of your mind to help you imagine your goals even while awake is guided imagery.
Guided imagery takes advantage of the unconscious and subconscious mind to help you pinpoint your conscious goals. The gentle, focused technique can be used for a wide variety of reasons depending on what you need help with in your life. Guided imagery can be as quick as a 5-minute session before the big game or as long as you need to solve that riddle you’ve been working on for weeks. In fact, guided imagery can help boost your self-confidence in a few key areas if you train with the technique.
Boost Emotional Intelligence
Many people find that expressing their emotions or pinpointing their exact feelings is a difficult skill to master. The inability to understand your emotions can lead to anger, depression or frustration in some people. With guided imagery, it is easier to name your emotions. Visualizing emotional obstacles can better prepare you for being able to express your feelings in a clear and concise manner, making it easier for you to communicate with those around you.
One of the most important branches in guided imagery is learning to visualize yourself solving a problem in your life. No matter how big the problem might seem, there’s more than likely a way to solve it. While the problems in your life can lead to self-doubt and a loss of confidence, using guided imagery can help you take back what you’ve lost by giving you the tools to solve your problem. Picturing your goal, using all your senses to imagine yourself overcoming obstacles, is one of the most vital ways of using guided imagery.
There often comes a time in life when we all could use a little happiness booster of sorts. With guided imagery, we can learn to refocus our happiness. Taking time during the day to visualize what makes us happiest can lead to powerful results. Happiness is an ever-changing emotion, one which has been the source of books, classes, and techniques to help humans find the right balance. Using guided imagery can help us get closer to maintaining a healthy level of happiness in our lives.
