COURSE OBJECTIVES

Visualization is the formation of mental visual images. It is an excellent way to prepare your mind before a presentation. 

 

There are several types of visualization:

RECEPTIVE VISUALIZATION.
Relax, clear your mind, sketch a vague scene, ask a question, and wait for a response. You might imagine you are on the beach, hearing and smelling the sea. You might ask, “Why can’t I relax?”, and the answer may flow into your consciousness.
 

PROGRAMMED VISUALIZATION. 
Create an image, giving it sight, taste, sound, and smell.  Imagine a goal you want to reach, or a healing you wish to accelerate. Jane used visualization when she took up running, feeling the push of running the hills, the sweat, and the press to the finish line.

 

GUIDED VISUALIZATION.
Visualize again a scene in detail, but this time leave out important elements.  Wait for your subconscious to supply missing pieces to your puzzle. Your scene could be something pleasant from the past.
