|Title:||The Power of Visualization|
|Author:||Lee Pulos, PhD|
|Type/Format:||Audio Programme (6 CD set)|
There are many books that refer to the power of visualization but have you ever wondered just how you were supposed to mentally create images? Perhaps you don't find it easy to see things in your mind's eye and are more comfortable with your feelings. Perhaps you get frustrated because your pictures lack clarity and focus. Maybe your pictures are clear but you don't know how to incorporate your feelings and other senses. If so, this book is for you. It shows you, step-by-step, how to develop or improve your ability to create mental images.
This is a 6 CD audio book:
Dr Pulos's expertise, experience and knowledge is apparent throughout the book, which has numerous references to the literature and to research studies. His teachings are supported by frequent examples and I found the exercises in relaxation and imagery particularly useful. He gives you many imaging techniques and, at first, I was a little overwhelmed. However, with time, I soon discovered the techniques that worked best for me.
My favourite topics are those on image streaming, to develop my imaging abilities, and those on goal setting. He not only stresses the importance of using all your senses in your imagery but takes you through relaxation exercises that gradually awaken those senses and give clarity to your dreams.
The book is a wealth of information including the way visualization and dreaming were used in ancient times.
The printable action guide is very useful in that the techniques are readily accessible, but I did find its organisation a little unstructured.
This is one of the most helpful books that I have come across in my quest for self-improvement. I enjoy listening to it and go back to it over and over again. I recommend it to anyone keen on learning about and using the power of visualization and, in particular, to those who want to develop the ability to visualize.
