In addition to healing, you can use visualization for connecting to your inner core and cultivating such qualities as love, forgiveness, patience, inner peace, compassion and wisdom. Alternatively, you can simply use this technique for stress reduction and inner relaxation. To use visualization for stress release, create images in your mind that will make you feel calm and peaceful. For instance, visualize a secret place in the mind; a place where you can be happy and at ease. It could be a place you have been to before or just something you create in the mind. Spend some time working on all the details of the place. You can also create a sacred space such as a temple or a sanctuary within your heart where you can go to during prayer and meditation or anytime you need to have some inner peace and serenity.
