Seven Benefits of Visualization and Affirmations
Just in case you may not have heard it yet…stress is a worldwide epidemic, according to the World Health Organization. In the U.S. alone, about 80 % of individuals are “afflicted by stress,” stated Gallup.
And while some stress is essential to our functioning and survival, it is the chronic type of stress we are referring to that is detrimental to your health in the long run. Chronic stress affects a huge number of adults as well as adolescents and children. “It is a top health concern for U.S. teens between 9th and 12th grade. Psychologists say that if the youngsters don’t learn healthy ways to manage that stress now, it could have serious long-term health implications,” per the American Psychological Association.
Individuals around the world are fighting the stress epidemic by deliberately becoming more mindful and balanced through visualizations and affirmations.
Why Visualization and Affirmation?
Visualization and affirmation are tools that can powerfully raise your consciousness and result in decreased stress because they help you to access your subconscious mind. The part of your brain that “runs the show”, whether you know it or not. These practices can help you:
Deeply relax, feel refreshed and recharged
Enhance immunity and tissue repair
Improve your relationships and reach your goals
Access your subconscious to make lasting behavioral changes, essential in creating a new personal reality
Maintain a consistently positive mood
Become more emotionally balanced, resilient, confident, and grateful
In the early ‘80s the late Louise L. Hay wrote the classic “You can Heal your Life” based on her own needs for consistent and empowering affirmations. The book has sold over 40 million copies worldwide…Aside from written affirmations, video and audio are two learning mediums that help individuals engage daily in affirmation and visualization and reap the rewards of their regular practice of changing neural pathways.
How Video Affirmations Can Effectively Reduce Stress
Most people prefer video-based learning. If given the choice to watch a video tutorial or read a book or blog post for example, the average learner will choose video. After all the human brain processes images 60,000 times faster than words…
While it is personal preference, one of the reasons why video is effective is because “Of all the information transmitted to the brain, 90 percent is visual,” stated eLearning Industry. “As opposed to text, visuals are processed thousands times faster.” Since movies are “motion pictures”, video improves learning results, according to the Huffington Post.
Video-based mindfulness guides are growing in popularity and can quickly raise your consciousness by helping you overcome limiting beliefs and break through inner emotional blockages. Another great benefit is that they can be accessed anywhere at any time, kind of like your personal life-coach, mentor or therapist. The free Delamora video guides impart the following priceless skills, as well as many others:
Overcoming fear and anxiety

The Purpose of Raising Your Consciousness
