When this happens, it as if you have become that image and it is now part of your very being.
To change that mantra and that imbedded image, you have to create a new substitution image of who you are. Sure, at first it may not seem real, but over time it will. This is one of the recommended procedures to place yourself on that path of wellness. You need to visualize, feel, see, breathe, smell, and taste a different and revitalized image of who you really are.
When you set up regular Qigong treatments with a Qigong therapist, he/she can help you create that image of a healthy you and show you ways to visualize this image and take you to that place so it becomes you new automatic ticker tape of who you really are.
The path to health and wellness is often a multi-step process. It can include Qigong treatments, exercises, dietary changes, meditation, and visualization. The goal is to help a person get to, and continue to be at their desired state of feeling well.
