Shrinking Box Visualization


Shrinking Box Visualization

Healing Lesson of the Day

<previous> 11/13 <next>

This is a simple, yet effective, visualization you can use to help combat those overwhelming stresses and pesky problems that are eating away at you. Imagine a plain cardboard carton. Open the box with your mind and picture yourself putting all your stresses and problems inside. Close the carton and seal it with duct tape. Now imagine the box literally shrinking in size. As it gets smaller and smaller you are helping to put your problems in perspective. Continue to mentally shrink down the box until "poof" the box has disappeared. Repeat this exercise everyday until you get the message that your problems are only as big as you picture them.
