Healing with Visualization
“Visualization has the power to become your tool for releasing whatever stands in your way, and then reclaiming your God-given abilities. If you hold any negative feelings and beliefs, you see them reflected in your internal imaging. By shifting from negative to positive images, you are set free. You will notice the difference each time you do this.” The Guides
This month of May brings more sunshine, flowers, and the ripening of early fruits… just as your own great efforts can bring you the fruits of well-being, abundance, and joy. Last month we talked about healing with breathwork, or conscious breathing. Another very effective method of healing uses “visualization”– or imagery as a powerful component for shifting mind and body into a balanced and healthy state.
Each of us has a capability of imagining. When we were children, our imagination was a fertile playground of make-believe for our amusement and comfort. As adults, we still hold images of ourselves, other people, situations, events, which we find believable. Our vision or internal images are so persuasive that they become real to our subconscious mind. That part of our mind holds a great deal of power over our thoughts and actions in the world. If it turns out that some of these visions are actually distortions of the truth, how do we change them?
Answer: we purposefully create new visions that are positive, uplifting, and move us forward in our lives.
A Visual Meditation – The River of Your Life
This is a meditation which allows you to witness the River of Your Life, and gently dissolve any blocks within that river…melting them into the Sacred Light. When the blocks are gone, you can flow effortlessly to your destination, goal, or outcome.
Become very comfortable. Close your eyes; breathe quietly and rest. You are going into your beautiful inner world. Breathing and resting, you feel happy and calm. Now imagine yourself on a river, tranquil … smoothly flowing. If you love to be in water, let yourself float effortlessly in the river itself. If you would prefer… be on the river, in a raft or boat. Either way, you are safe, gently flowing downstream. Shimmering water… beautiful riverbank… You pass gently along and notice your surroundings: Lovely trees, birds, and sweet smelling breezes.
This is the river of your life. This is the flow of your experiences; a flow that is natural for you. Behold your own magnificent life river. It has been abundant with blessings and gifts from the beginning of your life… the headwaters of your birth. It is your own energy stream this lifetime, blessed by Spirit, flowing at the right speed and direction for you. It is yours. Feel the brightness, the joy, the relaxation within you when you allow yourself to simply flow in your river.
As you float along in your own river, imagine that you have a goal or intention up ahead. Your goal, your outcome… calls to you… beckons to you. You can almost touch it. Look at it … you are almost there… you are traveling at the perfect rate towards it.
Can you get there? Does it feel easy? Or is something in your way? If you see nothing which would prevent your smooth progress, then simply flow to your destination and rejoice… see yourself arrive and be greeted by Divine Spirit Light and any friends or loved ones who celebrate with you.
But if you do find that you are blocked by something in the river, or that the river stops flowing or slows down as you approach your destination, look to see why. What is in your way? What does it look like? Do you recognize it? It may just look like a sort of obstacle in the river. That is OK. You do not need to know its content.
Breathe and relax as you look at this object or thing in front of you, blocking your passage to the destination.
Now imagine Sacred Light begins to stream from the Heavens. See that Light begin to permeate and dissolve the block in your flowing river. Melting… disappearing… evaporating. Watch as the block just… disappears. Now you only see the Light of Spirit, reflected and shining on the surface of your glorious river of life.
Repeat this Sacred Melting process if any other blocks appear on your river. You are in charge. This is your life river. You have Spirit working with you. Nothing can stop you. Anything that gets in your way is gently melted and dissolved into the Light.
Feel your flow pick up speed again… still gentle, but now steady and unobstructed… You flow freely to your luminous destination. You now have the freedom to move… freedom to have what you desire. You arrive, you rejoice… loved ones are with you… angels are with you… you are loved … and you are so deserving of all that you receive.
You have released any blocks that were preventing your progress, and you have reclaimed your natural ability to move through life as you were meant to – steady and with confidence.
The Highest is done… you give thanks.
