Guided Imagery Scripts

It is a form of guided meditation where a person is gently led into what can simply be described as a very vivid daydream. During a typical session a person will be lying down or sit comfortably with their eyes closed.

The guide will tell a story and you will, by way of your imagination, follow along and picture yourself in that situation.

How does guided imagery meditation work?

When you are in a profoundly relaxed state, your mind is not able to differentiate between what is real and what is imaginary.

Research with elite athletes has shown their muscles produce micro-movements in response to visualizing shooting a free throw in basketball. Some studies have shown that visualizing doing this is as effective as actually practicing it!

During guided meditation, the pictures painted in your imagination became very vivid and your mind experiences it as real. If the guided imagery scripts used are relaxing, healing and positive, your mind and body will experience relaxation, healing and positivity.

The deep relaxation created by a guided meditation script can lower your breathing and pulse rate, lower blood pressure and trigger the release of the feel good endorphins which can stimulate your own natural healing powers.

If you imagine yourself enjoying a pampering spa bath with the water soothing away the stresses of your day, your muscles will relax as if it was really happening and the benefits you will experience will be real and measurable.

Why would you use a guided imagery script?

Using a guide in the form of a person, cd and mp3 allows you to lay back and just follow along and reap the benefits. It is easy to use and requires nothing from you. Many people prefer this type of meditation instead of using regular meditation techniques that requires concentration and discipline.

Some of the benefits of meditation:

 

Relaxation and stress reduction can easily be achieved by stepping away from our daily stress filled lives for 15 minutes of meditation to ensure a calm mind.

Spiritual development and growth takes place in moments of silence, inner peace, centeredness and reflection.

Mastering of the self can be achieved if we learn to control our minds and our emotions. Meditation is the perfect vehicle for this.

Effortless detachment from daily irritations will become easier over time and help you to keep things in perspective and to keep things insignificant inconsequential.

Find the source of happiness by realizing through meditation that inner peace is the true source of well being and that outer circumstance is of little consequence. This knowledge can lead to profound emotional and physical healing.

Health benefits are numerous since stress reduction can alleviate many aches and pains. You can literally train yourself to turn down the volume of pain signals from your body.

Psychological problems can be reduced and controlled. Healthier thought management can lead to increased inner strength, balance, clarity and personal empowerment.
