Have you ever wondered if visualisation actually works?
Research tells us that it does! The brain actually doesn’t see a difference between what is real and what is imaginary.
This is because when you visualise something, physical changes occur in the human brain based on what you are visualising!
The most obvious human example of this is in how the human body responds to danger. We have the same stress response to actual danger as we do to perceived danger.
It has also been found that the primary benefits of visualisation come through repetition. Meanwhile, the brain circuits cause neuroplasticity. It allows changes and transformations that start in the mind.
Visualisation in action
Studies of sports performers and stroke survivors show that when a person merely imagines moving their muscles it causes great improvement in the muscles.
Even to people who have visualized their immune system. They become stronger and have experienced literal physical improvements in their immune system function.
Our energetic centre for visualisation
Our personal intuition is also connected to visualisation.
Each of us has a Third Eye chakra (also called our 6th chakra). That is our inner and outer visual center.
Renowned intuitive Cyndi Dale tells us that through the chakra, we obtain, record, and send pictures, symbols, colours, and images that represent reality.
So those of us who work energetically with our chakras can picture our visualisations through this visual centre.
