What is guided imagery?

Guided imagery (or guided meditation, as it is also called) is a way of taking the listener on an inner journey for a particular purpose, such as healing or to reduce stress. Start on your own path to health and well being with our guided meditation MP3s and CDs.

Today, many people are asking what is guided imagery, although it's been in common use for decades. Medical doctors specializing in pain control and certain cancer treatments use guided visualization methods to train the body to heal itself, curing disease by stimulating the immune system. Athletic coaches use guided imagery as a relaxation method to help their clients prepare for a difficult match. Similarly, parents use guided meditation to encourage relaxation for children.

In some cases the brain has the same response to a physical experience, or imagining having that experience. For instance, watching a scary movie can produce an adrenaline response, similar to being in a life threatening situation.

When asking what is guided imagery and what does it offer, consider that guided imagery meditation can bring about deep relaxation and positive focus, which can help stimulate healing. It can be used as a way to spark the imagination, and help bridge the conscious experience of the listener with their intuition. It can help stimulate a sense of spiritual connection. And it can be used to help a person connect with unresolved emotions in order to bring about clearing.
