"As living beings, we all wish for happiness and seek to avoid suffering. One of the major factors here is our mental attitude. Physical health is closely related to our state of mind. Scientific experiments have shown that if the mind is stable and calm, basic physical functions like digestion and sleep improve. On the other hand, when someone is mentally distressed, even the presence of friends, comfort and wealth will not make them happy."
Healing Images: The Role of Imagination in Health details the function and capacity of imagination in health. This work consists of 22 chapters and discusses theory, research, and clinical applications. Presented is a brief history of the use of imagery for healing in both Eastern and Western traditions, a review of research that deals with the physiological consequences of imagery and related approaches, and an explanation of how images lead to such bodily changes. Healing Images covers the latest theory and research on the relationship between imagery, cerebral laterality, and healing. An attempt is also made to integrate modern systems theory with concepts of information and energy, which disclose the role of imagery and love in health. Imagery and music in health are also discussed.
Healing Images examines how and why mental images help in connecting with our inner wisdom and covers in detail applications of imagery in pain management, smoking cessation, weight management, sex therapy, and the treatment of phobic disorders, eating disorders, cardiovascular disorders, depression, trauma, and cancer. This volume also explores imagery in intuition and spiritual development and includes a discussion of transpersonal and death images along with their implications for health and growth.
