The practitioner may facilitate this process to an individual or a group. Alternatively, the participant/client 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 following premise. 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.
