Recently, I woke up startled and upset from an unpleasant dream. I felt immediately guided to imagine myself in a crystal cave of healing. I had never done that before, but it sounded lovely! I expectantly imagined myself in a cave lined with amethyst crystals, each glistening and emanating a healing vibration. It was so beautiful and calming. After a while, I felt complete with that image, and was left peaceful, inspired, and ready to start my day.
I believe that every aspect of creation has its own energy and many forms of creation can be healing. Some examples are certain minerals, crystals, plants, trees, the earth, animals, tones, music, angels, and more. What is really astounding is how even just imagining these things can be healing. Our imaginative faculties are extremely powerful!
What can you connect with in your imagination that would be helpful for you? We all can engage our imaginations in a positive and fruitful way.
I used to be a hypnotherapist who specialized in “Hypnobirthing”, a way to help pregnant couples prepare for and give birth using hypnosis and self-hypnosis. After giving birth, the moms would report that using these methods, which included visualizing and believing in their desired result (a peaceful and uncomplicated labor) helped them to stay calm and often, avoid the use of pharmaceuticals. It was amazing!
One of these clients imagined angel Gabriel (which means “strength of God”) by her side during the delivery, and it brought her much comfort. In essence, she connected the effects of a lowered brain wave (from self-hypnosis) with imagination (of a peaceful labor), and a spiritual connection (angel Gabriel). These are magic ingredients! When we combine these things, we are using visualization or imagination to its utmost potential to help us.
These are some of the ingredients I use in my private sessions and meditation circles today, amongst other things. For example, we connect with Source energy (aka God) and, through a ThetaHealing meditation, lower our brain waves to a Theta wave (like in deep meditation, hypnosis, or light sleep). Believing in our positive unfolding is another key.
Are you looking for a greater sense of peace no matter what storms rage around you? An ability to discover and change belief systems that are limiting you? A blooming of dreams that you have lovingly kept in your heart till now?
My wish for you is that you engage your imagination in a positive and fruitful way- focusing on and believing in what is helpful and meaningful to you, and brings you joy. May you move forward towards what you need and want. It's worth the effort, and so are you!
