Do You Have a Vision Board or a “Vision Bored”?

By on November 3, 2016

Has Your Pain Created a Boring Life for You?

We know that pain creates a stress reaction in the body.

This reaction generates negative emotions embodied in physical sensations and can amplify the experience of pain.

For example:

  • Anger and resentment form in the neck and shoulders
  • Sadness forms in the area around our heart
  • Fear and worry become felt as real in the stomach area

In our coaching, we use trained unconscious processes to quickly eliminate these emotions so that they don’t have a chance to amplify pain.

By stopping worried thinking or holding a pleasant mental image, you can unhook thoughts from feelings and create this response.

We recommend that you visualize and image of a peaceful place, such as a lake or ocean, or perhaps a place that had special meaning to you.

You can choose a word or phrase that puts you in a place of contentment—like love or I am relaxing—to focus on.

Use your imagination! You will find that the relaxation response is very useful in healing several stress-related ailments, including anxiety.

Try these simple steps:

  1. Sit quietly in a comfortable position.
  2. Close your eyes.
  3. Now with each breath, slowly repeat your chosen word, phrase, sound and image gazing at your chosen place.
  4. Just notice what you’re experiencing. When other thoughts come to mind, gently return to the thought-stopping repetition of your chosen focus.
  5. Be patient and continue for ten to twenty minutes.
  6. Repeat several times a day.

The results will add up with practice.
