The power of the creative imagination
needs to be taken seriously by the novice as a healing tool.
It may not even be fully explored by those who use it in their
daily lives. There are many kinds of guided meditation. We’re
going to focus on self-guided meditation for the beginner.
For those who have never used or experienced
guided imagery, they can consider it a form of controlled
fantasy. This is fantasizing with intention or a goal––something
the individual wants to achieve. Yet it does have a trance-like
relaxation element, and even pleasure that fantasies often
have. The object of a relaxed state is that the individual
enters into an alpha or theta state, whereby they can utilize
their psychic abilities. Novice’s can begin to develop
these abilities. The individual exercises and familiarizes
themselves with the third eye, also known as the Eye of Shiva.
In this staging area of our imaginative faculties, we can
create or recreate our personal reality. The creative intelligent
power of Soul at this level of consciousness, and in this
area of it’s being (the sixth or brow chakra or third
eye), truly becomes a conscious creator of its own reality.
This is also known as “the Creative Seat of Soul.”
The possibilities of what we can create for
ourselves are as endless as our imagination. We can “reimage”
our life according to our liking, as well as what’s
possible when there are no internal blockages in these areas.
Whether the focus is health, finances, relationships or our
life purpose, guided imagery helps to align our “selves,”
focus our energies, and create and establish the road before
A simple technique for beginners is to sit
quietly where they won’t be disturbed, giving themselves
a comfortable block of time whereby the practitioner begins
to relax by simply breathing in and out, placing their attention
on their breathing process. This will slow down thoughts and
still the chattering of the mind. At some point they’ll
find themselves observers of their thoughts, and at this moment
their mind’s eye (the mental screen) can be used as
an area to formulate through imaging, the desired manifestation.
With imagination and intention, Soul puts into motion cause
and effect. By molding its divine energy, it manifests in
the intended result. Simply put, it’s “getting
what we wish for.”
Our manifestations can come quickly and clearly
when we image them with no subconscious interference and external
obstacles. When we’re in alignment within ourselves
and outside ourselves, and in the flow of our life force,
these manifestations can be surprising. And, at some times,
they’re considered miraculous. As a healing technique,
whether it’s healing ones health, finances or relationships,
it also brings confidence and empowers the practitioner. By
experimenting with this on a daily basis, these abilities
develop and help us to advance spiritually and more tangibly
in life itself.
