Visualization is a very powerful tool for healing and may be used in acquiring positive energy. It is used in many forms of meditation. Allow yourself to know that your visualization is your reality and you will soon begin to see yourself benefitting from your visualization. It may be used in many ways. Remember, your intention becomes your reality. Establish a clear intent and then visualize it as reality. This easy technique may be used in any situation. If you are challenged by an upcoming event, sit quietly for a moment with your eyes closed, establish your intent (the positive outcome of the challenge) and then envision it with your mind’s eye. Once you have practiced visualization, you will realize how easy it is to use and that you have probably been doing it for some time in various situations.
Envisioning White Light
One way I use visualization is to draw upon the Universe’s energy by envisioning pure white light radiating throughout my body. I begin by closing my eyes and envisioning the whitest, purest healing light entering from the top of my head and coming straight down through the center of my body and out from my core base. To enhance the energy, I breathe in the white light and exhale any negativity from within. Anytime I feel the need for increased energy, I find this an effective means of rejuvenation. I even use it when I am ascending a particularly challenging climb or for increased energy during an aerobic exercise. Once you have practiced with it, you will find that it will enable you to enhance the positive energy of any experience. White light is a pure healing light. This is one of the techniques I consistently use for my healing. I find it effective in relieving aches, pains, headaches, etc. It is the method I relied upon most heavily when I was healing my major illness.
Relaxation through Visualization
Visualization may be used for relaxation in the spur of the moment. A moment or two of your envisioning yourself in a relaxed favorite location (like on a beautiful white sand beach basking in the glow of a beautiful sun with a gentle breeze), will serve to calm you within the moment you are currently engaged.
Visualization for Chakra Balancing and Cleansing
Visualization is also used in the balancing and cleansing of your chakras (please see the section on the chakras).
