GUIDED IMAGERY is the assisted re-creation of perceptual experience across sensory perception of sights, sounds, tastes, smells, movements, and images associated with touch, texture, temperature, and pressure use to help people replacing unwanted associations.
Guided Imagery (also known as Guided Affective Imagery) is a mind-body intervention by which a trained practitioner helps a participant/client to evoke and generate mental images.  Images that simulate or re-create the sensory perception of sights, sounds, tastes, smells, movements, as well as images associated with touch, texture, temperature, and pressure. This also consists of imaginative or mental content that the participant or patient experiences as defying conventional sensory categories. The Guided Imagery technique may precipitate strong emotions or feelings in the absence of the stimuli/situation to which correlating sensory receptors are receptive.

The facilitator guides the participant/client who may follow the guidance provided by a sound recording, video, or audiovisual media comprising a spoken instruction that may be accompanied by music or sound.

The use of Guided Imagery is based on the premise that everyone participates in both the voluntary and involuntary spontaneous generation of visual, auditory and other mental images. This is a necessary part of the way in which a person solves problems, recollects the past, predicts and plans the future. It also formulates their self-perception, self-image, or the way they 'view' and perceive themselves.

Your perceived self-image can be altered and self-regulated with the aid of mind-body interventions including the technique of Guided Imagery. This technique can assist an individual to change the way he or she visualizes, imagines, and perceives themselves generally, and their physical condition, body image, and mental state specifically.

Your life is the reflection of your thoughts, and by aligning your thoughts and your actions you can change your life.
