This book assists the reader in learning about the powers of vision and it's influence over your decision making process. How to identify and respond to images obtained by the physical eye and how to manipulate positive images, produced by the intuitive imaging process of the brain. An excellent book for those who want to be the best they can be. You are what you think you are!

Format: Paperback
The human mind is a slide projector with an infinite number of slides in its library, an instant retrieval system and an endlessly cross-referenced subject catalog. The inner image we show ourselves form our lives, whether as memories, fantasies, dreams or visions. Inner images supply the creative force in art, spirituality, psychology, healing, parapsychology and daily life, but they have never been studied comprehensively. This book opens the mind's eye to the inner world, the most significant, richly illustrated such exploration ever published.

There are two important 20th century concepts...visualization and meditation. Meditation clears and concentrates the mind; visualization puts an image in it which can profoundly affect the life. What is seeing in the mind's eye? It is only recently that this powerful, often fearful, question is beginning to be answered.

Visualization is the way we think. Before words, images were. It is the heart of the bio-computer. The human brain programs and self-programs through its images. It is the ultimate consciousness tool.

Ever since being introduced to this book in the mid-80's, I have had a copy on my shelf. Actually I have had a number of copies on my shelf over the years as I keep giving the book away and having to order another. Hard to believe that it was originally published in 1978 - over 30 years ago. It has been out of print for a while - after 9th printing in 1983 bringing total printed and sold to over 100,000.

At any rate this oversized paperback is exactly what its sub-title promises "The History, Techniques, and Uses of Visualization". It is also far more than that - comprehensive and far-reaching, with many beautiful black and white illustrations as well as color plates of some of the world's great art from different cultures and different periods of history. Definitely in the "must have" category of classic reference books. Anyone interested in, or practicing guided imagery, creative visualization, self-hypnosis, shamanic journeying, etc. would be well served by reading "Seeing With The Mind's Eye".

I teach a class related to mental health and wellness using art as a tool for mental wellness. I gained insight and good ideas that were thought provoking and helpful to use in the class
