If we did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves (Thomas Edison)
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us (Oliver Wendell Holmes)
Sometimes we find in ourselves in situations where we might not choose to be; where we question why?! Or we might impose conditions on ourselves which push our physical selves beyond the limit. In these situations, our mind has to take over. I think we cannot even begin to comprehend what our minds are capable of.

In healing, repetitive use of positive visualization allows access to the mind-body connection. This lets the mind and body work together to foster the healing process of the body on a physical level.
Positive thought is essential to producing positive results. Negative thoughts and emotions lower the immune system, while positive thought and emotions actually boost the immune system. To maximize success of visualization as a support to the healing process, the following suggestions are offered:
Define Your Specific Intention
Get Mentally Relaxed
If you have difficulty you may want to try one or more of these methods:
- Use creative imagery like seeing the cells in your body healing you; your immune system fighting off invaders; your pain being taken away by healing mud
- Imagine yourself in a very beautiful place whole, healthy and happy
- Try reading scripts from a visualization or self-hypnosis book
- Try making your own tape in your own voice
Visualization does work to help boost your body back to health. Don't just work on the body; add the mind to maximize your healing process with visualization.
