Module 4 | Lesson 4.3
Visualisation for sleep

Visualisation and the brain ~ 8 mins

In his book, The Brain’s Way of Healing, Norman Doidge gives examples of the brain’s capacity to form new connections within the brain (neuroplasticity), bringing about surprising and unexpected healing for chronic pain.

He shows how it is possible to use different forms of energy – light, sound, vibration, motion, images – to modify the patterns of the brain’s electrical signals.

Different forms of energy can be used for healing and different health conditions respond to specific techniques.

This practice invites unlearning and rewiring your brain so that new pathways are formed. The chronic pain pathways can be unlearned, creating more ease, and therefore restful sleep.
