What is Imagery?

Imagery is one of the most powerful tools that I use while working with clients. As the saying goes a picture is worth a thousand words. Many people try and think their way through things, rather than creating a picture of what they want. Imagery is able to help clarify within your own mind what you want and how you want it to look.

Imagery is not just about creating pictures in your mind. Many people believe that in order to do imagery or have success with it you have to be able to create these very detailed images. However, imagery is more than just pictures, it is about involving all of your senses, taste, touch, smell, feeling, sight and noises. Each person will have senses, much like attention skills, that are more developed, and these are the senses you want to incorporate more.

Some people when I put them through imagery do not pick up much in terms of  what they see, but can feel themselves going through the motions, or can hear the sounds, or the smells of the location they are in. It is important when doing imagery to make it so that it works for you and caters to your strengths. No two people will see things the same way, so just because you don’t see pictures doesn’t mean you are not capable of using imagery and benefiting from it.
