We usually experience our world through our left brain, analysing, observing, and making rational decisions. However, there is another important part of us, often ignored and undervalued. Our right brain tells of our subconscious, our intuition, our body sensations, our images, and our dreams. The two always co-exist but we are trained to focus only on the ‘rational’ side.
What if you could dive into the right side or your brain, the subconscious, and see what is there, and how it influences our perceptions of the world and who you are? What if we could change it and therefore clean up old subconscious beliefs and thinking patterns, allowing new images, beliefs and futures to emerge? Through the use of imagery and dream work we can do just that.
There is considerable research that concludes that images influence our immune, cardiovascular, and nervous systems. Imagery work is extensively and successfully used by athletes when preparing for a top performance.
In guided imagery, short exercises are conducted by the healer. You are invited to consider the images that come up in response to the exercises and to consider the message or challenges that may come out of them. Through correcting or creating your own inner landscape, you are able to journey on your own road of transformation.
Waking dreams occur while the dreamer is fully conscious and alert. A question or situation may be presented and then explored through moving in the world of dreams and images that lie hidden.
Dream Opening is when a night dream has been written down and is shared with the healer. The healer “opens” up the dream by looking at the story, the patterns and the messages the dream may have. This is done through the healers own responses and associations. You are then invited to comment on the opening and consider the implications.
In an imagery session, all of the above techniques can be used depending on the issue at stake. In addition, imagery practices may be proposed for homework. A session takes about one hour and can be done in person or through Skype.
