Here’s a reminder for using Audio Imagery:
Find yourself a quiet place where you’re not likely to be interrupted. Sit in a chair where your back is straight, your feet touching the floor. Place your hands on your lap or on the arms of the chair, whichever is more comfortable.
“To help direct our attention inward and induce a light relaxation, we start by breathing out a long, slow exhalation through the mouth, and follow it with a normal inhalation through the nose, i.e. don’t exaggerate the inbreath. Typically you’ll be instructed to do this 3 times – an exhalation followed by an inhalation, an exhalation followed by an inhalation, an exhalation followed by an inhalation. Once you complete the number of breaths recommended, your breathing can resume its natural pattern.
“As you become familiar by doing this, your attention will focus on the images and your breathing will take care of itself.” noted Dr. Gerald (Jerry) Epstein, founder of the American Institute for Mental Imagery in New York City, where he introduced Imagery as a major part of the Institute’s curricula.You’ll find more on this in The Encyclopedia of Mental Imagery – Colette Aboulker Muscat’s 2100 Visualization Exercises for Personal Development, Healing and Self-Knowledge co-edited by the now late Jerry Epstein and Barbarah Fedoroff (available through Amazon.com)
