"Most people live, whether physically, intellectually or morally,
in a very restricted circle of their potential being. They make
use of a very small portion of their possible consciousness,
and of their soul's resources in general."
-- William James
Expert Los Angeles Therapeutic Imagery Facilitator
Whatever we give our attention to, we attract.
"Where thoughts go, energy flows". Therefore, the more deliberate we are in choosing our thoughts, the more we are able to focus our experiences in desired directions. Like attracts like, form follows idea and what preoccupies our thoughts tends to become our reality. Goal-oriented Therapeutic Imagery is a way of focusing ones mind to get what one wants out of life, be it health, happiness or prosperity.
The essence of guided imagery for therapeutic purposes
is to consciously focus one's imagination on an objective, with the intention of achieving that objective. Therapeutic Imagery can clear up confusion about a decision you need to make or help you find out what is holding you back and blocking you and causing sabotage to your life.
Enhancing awareness of the client’s existing subconscious imagery, and providing positive images meaningful to the client,
the facilitator teaches clients to utilize this imagery on their own behalf. The desire for self-direction is honored and expanded by accepting the client's own personal imagery and clients are both empowered and motivated, bringing about profound change.
Therapeutic Imagery often begins with deep relaxation that is facilitated by attention to breath and visual or other sensory experiences. Imagery is encouraged and directed by the facilitator and answers and insights come from the client's own subconscious. Clients are both empowered and motivated, bringing about profound change.
