In other articles on this website, we have discussed how to control stress with self hypnosis, breathing techniques, positive thinking, physical exercise and a host of other strategies. This page is focused on one of my favorite mind power techniques for self-healing and changing internal states, namely, "Creative Visualization."
Creative Visualization is simply the process of using mental imagery and other internal senses to create what you want in your life.
Mind visualization is an essential ingredient in most mind power techniques.
When it comes to learning how to control stress, the goal of the practice, is simply to feel more peaceful, relaxed and in control. When you consciously apply your mind power to that end, you may be surprised at just how easy it is, to reach your goal.
Creative visualization uses memory and imagination to shift your personal energy AND FOCUS to help you get more of what you want.
This is probably the simplest technique for learning how to control stress because it helps you relax the mind.
Most stress control techniques focus on on physical relaxation but unless your mind is calm and at peace, the effect is marginal. So, no matter what relaxation technique you are using, make sure that you employ mind visualization to help relax your mind.
This mind visualization technique makes use of light. It works especially well for people like me who aren't very visual but who can FEEL the light.
This is similar to the first exercise where we practiced how to control stress by REMEMBERING a tranquil or passive scene. You will imagine yourself in a beautiful, tranquil place and immerse your inner senses.
But this exercise requires a little more mind power because you will create a place you have not actually visited before (though you may have pictures in magazines or movies that are similar.)
For this exercise you will use more of your imagination. Your memory will still serve as points of reference but you can create a space in your mind that is totally unique and used exclusively by you.
Which of these three mind power techniques is the best one for learning how to control stress? Whichever one you most enjoy,using and applying.
I find that just five minutes a day works wonders for my clients who are learning how to control stress.
