Ease into au­tumn with vi­su­al­i­sa­tion

Spirit and Destiny - - Feel Good -

AF­TER A SUM­MER of sunny days and lazy evenings, the ar­rival of au­tumn can leave many of us feel­ing lack­lus­tre.

Why not try some creative vi­su­al­i­sa­tion to help you hang onto that sum­mer feel­ing?

Creative vi­su­al­i­sa­tion, whose fans in­clude Oprah Win­frey and ac­tor Jim Car­rey, is a tech­nique that uses the imag­i­na­tion to change our emo­tional state.

By cre­at­ing a men­tal pic­ture of some­thing and fo­cus­ing on this im­age, sce­nario or feel­ing for a pe­riod of time each day, we can make it a re­al­ity be­cause our thoughts start to change the en­ergy around us.

So, if you’re in need of a pick me up as the clocks go back, here’s what you can do to think your­self full of beans:

Find some­where peace­ful to sit and, in your mind’s eye, pic­ture a ball of golden light hov­er­ing above you.

Slow your breath­ing, clear your mind and watch the ball float to­wards your chest and into your body.

As the light grows in­side you feel it’s ra­di­ant en­ergy vi­brate through you, spread­ing a sunny warmth.

Prac­tise this vi­su­al­i­sa­tion daily through­out the au­tumn to keep your spir­its high.
