Explains the principles behind these techniques for realizing your life goals

All the great cultures and traditions of the world have recognized that human beings can transform the circumstances and conditions of their lives by visualizing powerful images. After centuries dominated by objective science that has given the material world precedence over the spiritual, many of us have forgotten how to use this innate ability. Now researchers are rediscovering the effects of visualization on one's emotions, mental state, physical body, behavior, and even on the future.

Creative Visualization is a guide to recovering and improving your powers of imagination and using them for positive change in your life. By means of deep relaxation and visualization techniques, Ronald Shone shows you how to succeed in business, excel in sports, improve your memory, achieve goals, raise energy levels, overcome shyness, relieve pain, and improve your health.

With today's resurgent interest in expanded states of consciousness, creative visualization is being used in fields as diverse as medicine, sports, psychology, and the creative arts. Use this book to understand the principles behind this process and how it can help you realize your life goals.
