I was asked by a long-time reader of my blog to explain the relationship of visualization to the physical healing process. Healing encompasses not only physical ailments, which the reader was interested in, but you can also heal a relationship or a scarce financial situation, or anything that needs to be mended. Visualization has long been a tool of metaphysicians; however, it is barely recognized by the everyday community, even though it is a part of our daily thought-routine, knowingly or not. Let me explain.
If you want something new, (let’s start with a ‘thing’) for instance a new dress, you will have a certain picture in mind immediately. Maybe not an exact outline, but a certain type of dress that relates to your sub-conscious likes or dislikes buried deep within. There is nothing mysterious about it, it just pops up and your desire to possess this dress becomes stronger. You start to visualize the color, design, length and how it will look on your body. You are not certain in what store you will find it, but you start thinking of the stores you frequent and you imagine it hanging there. This is all done automatically; it is a basic function of the mind. You check your pocket book and decide to buy it. You now will go on your hunt and the picture will become clearer during your shopping spree, all the while holding this image of the desired dress in your mind. You are visualizing.
This process works for all things the same way, and the more you visualize having a certain item, possessing it, touching it, loving it and so on, the surer you will find the perfect article immediately, or at least in a reasonable amount of time. You will also always find a way to pay for it, as this is the law of abundance. Have you ever noticed people that supposedly can’t afford anything, but always find a way to generate money to get that manicure or hair-do?
So in order to use visualization in a metaphysical or powerful way, you have to become aware of its proper function and purpose. Visualization is extremely potent. It is part of the universal creation process.
The application operates as follows: When you see your specific desire with your mental eye, continue to visualize it in every detail. Feel it, touch it, or mentally taste it. See yourself wearing the dress (or whatever you want to do with the object of your desire) and imagine showing it off to friends. Think about the wonderful experience you will have and know that it already exists. You can do this easily with your imagination. Imagination is so wonderful; it encompasses all and allows you to travel to uncharted places or obtain anything. Go beyond your wildest dreams, imagine the highest ideal you can possibly think of and see what happens. Dreams will come true!
The secret to manifest your desires is the knowledge that ‘all things’ already exist in the mental. They do not have to be ‘made’. They are ready for the taking, waiting for you to find them. They are within your reach. Not only will you find them, but the money necessary to purchase the item will also appear, once you are convinced that ‘it’ is already yours.
The above are easier examples, but now let’s examine the more advanced healing method through visualization. Healing a decayed tooth or a broken bone, for example, takes time and patience. Visualization of a perfectly healed bone will help to speed up the healing process. The basic principle of all healings is the same. Healing a pocket book, healing a need of or lack of, healing a broken heart or healing a mental illness, or physical illness all adhere to the same universal law; the law of perfection. In the realm of mind all is perfect and good. We, not knowing this fact, have not lived according to the law. We have violated the law and therefore must face the consequences. We are punished for our mistakes. The law of cause and effect works at all times, so changing our behaviors and thought patterns to conform to the law will automatically change our experience and wipe away our woes.
Visualization is a tool, a powerful tool in this process of healing. It affirms that all is perfect, by seeing yourself as perfect. When you display an illness, using a cold for example, you will put your mind into a peaceful state by allowing it to rest and see yourself in your mind’s eye that you are well and perfectly happy. You will not dwell on your cold, or listen to the squawkers that say you probably caught the cold that everyone has right now. You know that this is only a belief, an error. You know that you’d rather be healthy and therefore you visualize yourself exactly as that.
All physical afflictions can be aided with visualization, some seem more difficult than others, but the principle is the same. The knowledge that you are a perfect being, made in the image and likeness of the all-power, shall give you the faith needed, it shall make you free – and the good intentions to be the best you can be will be your help-mate in all undertakings, including the healing of your physical ailments. Be happy, be good, be yourself!
