Visualisation is a meditation tool which is accessible to anyone and can be used anywhere. Visualisation meditation, involves imagining a scene where you feel at peace and free to let go of all tension and anxiety. This can be done following a guided visualisation or on your own:

If you’re trying visualisation on your own, incorporating your senses can heighten your experience of relaxation:

For example, imagine you are sitting on a pier looking out at the sea:

  • See the sun setting over the water
  • Hear the waves as they hit the edge
  • Smell the sea air
  • Feel the cool water on your feet
  • Taste the salt water

Benefits of Visualisation:

Increased Positivity

Visualisation meditation can help you to develop a more positive outlook on life, through learning to let go of negative self-talk that may have been holding you back for years.

Emotional Preparation

Allowing yourself time to meditate will allow you to have a clearer outlook on life, and your feelings too. Preparing you for the challenges you may face and allowing you too truly feel the pleasant feelings once you are through that challenge.

Safe Space

Having a space where we feel safe and at home is a key element in Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and crucial to leading a positive lifestyle. Visualisation can help us to create a safe space in our mind, even if we can’t be there physically.

Digital Detox

Spending time meditating, means you are spending time away from your screen. Within this time away from your screen you are boosting your concentration, creating mental focus and extending your attention span too.
