The subconscious mind thinks in pictures, sounds and movements, which helps explain why imagery is such a powerful way to achieve higher levels of awareness and understanding. Interactive guided imagery (IGI) allows you to direct the imagery, usually beginning with a "safe place" where you can relax and quiet your mind. No medications or hypnosis are involved. The therapist simply guides you to whatever awareness and insight you choose. The visualization can be in thoughts, pictures, and/or feelings. It's an excellent way to facilitate the healing process, as well as to prepare for surgery, improve sleep, increase immune function, and manage acute or chronic pain.
