MENTAL IMAGERY EXERCISE
Intention: To gain clarity in relationship
Sit up straight in a chair, legs and arms uncrossed and close your eyes. Breathe evenly and regularly– long slow exhalations through the mouth and brief, normal inhalations through the nose. After several of these full respiratory cycles:
Imagine yourself at the age of 75 or so, sitting on your porch, veranda or on your couch. Look around to see who is next to you. Pay attention to the image, it holds a basket-full of information.
Breathe out and open your eyes.
Write down your experience.
Here’s an activity.
Write a love letter to your beloved and pour you heart out to him or her. You don’t have to mail it. Keep it next to your heart for three days then put it away.
Don’t spend more than a minute or two on the exercise. These exercises are not meant to be done for more than one or two minutes. By doing them, you receive small doses of light on a daily basis and you breathe life into your intention and strengthen your voluntary will.
It’s just like in homeopathy, the principle of which is that small doses accelerate the healing and transformational process, whereas extended stimuli suppress it.
The above imagery exercise has been given by Dr. Jerry Epstein. Please give due credit if you use it in your workshops or sessions.
