Target: Self-love and Compassion | 30 min by Alexandra Kafka, Mindfulness Coach & Founder of Urban Yoga Lab
Mentalisation/visualisation, unlike meditation, is not to stop your thoughts, in fact, its purpose is to utilise thinking to create new archetypes in the subliminal mind to influence the physical body positively. Using visualisation triggers hormones and synapses making it easier for us to tackle daunting tasks. There is a lot of research that shows how mental practice boosts confidence, enhances mood, helps the healing process and has a positive effect on the performance of cognitive and physical tasks.
