The definition of visualization according to Web Definitions is a “visual image: a mental image that is similar to a visual perception”. Visualization requires the use of imagination. You can visualize an image that is either stationary or moving. The brightness, color, and clarity of the image add to the effectiveness of the visualization. Charging it with positive emotional energy makes the image really come alive. This can be accomplished by envisioning white light descending from the universe and filling the image with positive emotional energy.
The summer of 1988 was hot, dry and sunny. I have always enjoyed this type of weather and the amount of Vitamin D I absorbed while basking in the sun’s warmth. Hot summers are also a time for deliciously cold ice cream and soda pop, which I consumed, in copious amounts.
As the season wore on I experienced twinges of pain in my abdomen. After several weeks these pains became more intense. In early August I visited my doctor to check out this pain. I was diagnosed with a kidney stone the size of a large marble. My doctor installed a tube in my urinary track to hold the stone in place. The general plan was that I would undergo a lithotripsy procedure. This treatment uses intense vibrations to breakup the stone into pieces so small that they would pass naturally.
The plan of action seemed like a good one except for one problem - I would have wait in line to receive this treatment as there were many other people on the waiting list before me. After the tube was installed the stone did not bother me excessively. I was scheduled for the lithotripsy treatment in early January of the following year.
I decided to be proactive and use energetic visualization to reduce the size of the stone. Problems such as kidney stones are actually blessings in disguise because they warn you of serious imbalance in your system. In my case the imbalance was caused by my diet, namely the ice cream and soda pop. I abstained from both for the remainder of the summer.
I meditated on an image of how I “saw” the stone. I visualized a tan colored lump of sandstone about the size of my thumb. Turning up the brightness and contrast to make my image as clear as possible, I filled the stone full of positive white emotional energy. I meditated on this piece of sandstone, imagining grains of sand falling away from the stone. After an hour of energetic focus, the image of the stone had visibly reduced in size with a small pile of loose sand surrounding it. I finished my meditation with a request to my unconscious mind to continue peeling away grains of sand from the stone. Then I put the stone out of my mind and carried on with my life. Each time I became aware of my condition, I imagined the stone shrinking and became smaller in size.
The months passed and finally my turn came for the lithotripsy treatment. Before the procedure, my doctor did another x-ray of that area to see the size and location of the kidney stone. Upon examining the x-ray, my doctor was amazed to find no trace of the marble size stone that had existed just months before. Since there was no visual evidence of the kidney stone he removed the tube from my urinary track (with more than a small amount of discomfort I will add!)
That evening I experienced the worst pain of my life. I needed to urinate but my urinary track was somehow plugged. After what seemed like an eternity (about 1 hour) I felt something let go and start moving inside me. I urinated into a cup and finally I passed a small black colored stone less than 1/8” in diameter. I was relieved to say the least!
I took the stone to my next appointment and showed the doctor what had been inside my kidney. He examined the stone, which was too small to appear on the x-ray. He said this type of stone was actually so hard that the lithotripsy treatment would have been ineffective in breaking up the stone.
I certainly believe my visualization had been effective enough to reduce the stone to a manageable size. I did experience a short period of pain and discomfort. I think the pain was a reminder to watch my diet during the hot weather. Had the stone remained its original size the alternative would have been far worse, as I would have required surgery. It has been twenty-five years since that summer and I have been free of kidney stones ever since.
Energetic visualization, applied in a positive manner can be a powerful aid to eliminating many diseases, both physical and emotional. If you don’t like the picture, simply replace it with one you do like!
