You are more productive by doing fifteen minutes of visualization than from sixteen hours of hard labor.
~ Abraham Hicks
It is common knowledge that professional athletes and dancers train not only their body, but their mind as well. Seeing each move as if watching their own movie set, in their mind is paramount for their success. They literally change their neurological networks by imagining and sensing themselves in their activity as if it were real. And to the brain and body it is real.
The brain does not know the difference to what is real or imagined. So, the ‘imagined’ signals are broadcast out into the infinite universal quantum field, and the body of the dancer/athlete remembers (from their mental practice) every move, and performs just as they imagined.
This audio was created for the dancer in mind, whether a student or professional. Similarly, creative movement teachers and performers will find it powerful as well!
There are four parts of the meditation. Jenny begins with an introduction about meditation and creative visualisation for dancers and performers using empowering and colourful words, easing into the practice with the sounds of the Tibetan bowls in the background that continue throughout. This is intentional, and the sounds and vibrations induce a relaxed, trance-like state to help quieten your mind.
In this relaxed state invoked by Jenny’s soothing voice, you will be guided to breathe mindfully and deeply, becoming aware of your body, deepening your relaxed state. Your attention will continue to go inward as the external distractions fade away. (This breath part of the meditation is useful to be listened to separately whenever you feel a need to stop and pause in your day.)
In the creative visualisation part of the meditation (track 3), Jenny uses key, precise words and phrases that are creative, dynamic and movement-based that will guide you to embody your dance practice – in your mind, sensing your body, ‘seeing’ yourself dancing specific moves or a specific way. You will mentally, emotionally and creatively see and sense your body dancing/moving through your imagination, your mind’s eye.
This embeds the images in your body (your body is your subconscious mind..) It’s a gorgeous creative visualisation practice with mindful meditation, creating a powerful practice for you to listen to and embody.
Furthermore, this guided meditation is wonderful for the performer/dancer who has been injured, or for some reason taking a rest – to dance in their mind first! A mental-dance-training while their body is recovering. So, when they return to their dance/activity, the body has been primed for the already-practiced-future Self.
I know you will love it.
Best meditating practice:
Staying conscious with a relaxed body is the optimal state, to be able to slip into the alpha brain wave state and beyond. This is the state for creating…
For best listening and meditation, here are some tips:
⊹Please wear headphones or use stereo sound speakers (great for yoga/meditation class!)
⊹An eye mask might be appropriate to block out any other sensory stimulation.
⊹Find a comfortable position –
⊹Sit upright in a chair with good back support and feet touching the floor, or
⊹A seated meditation position with legs crossed in front of you, or
⊹A Japanese style seated position with a cushion under your bottom, and hands resting on your lap.
⊹Alternatively, you may lie down, however you may fall asleep! I recommend that if you do lay down, lie in a semi-supine position: legs/feet resting on a chair at 90 degrees to the floor)
⊹Feel the feelings of having/being/doing that which you desire. Get emotional!
⊹Finally, give thanks at the end of the meditation for your new state of Being and new life. Give thanks as if your prayers have been answered.
