The word imagination means imagination. It is based on a relaxed state of consciousness. When we imagine, we release the flow of our imagination as we experience inner images. The source of the images imagined in this way is the unconscious.
Imaginations are relatively independent of conscious thinking and our will, so they are created freely, so imagination can flow freely and display images and events that are full of emotions. These images can then present the events, persons, traumas that are important to the client, present or past, that are important to the client. Many times, a single imaginary exercise is enough to end a year-long nightmare series. It can give you very important insights about yourself. In the therapeutic situation, imagination takes place in a special way, in a modified state of consciousness (trans). The therapist helps to achieve this state of consciousness, and after the client has reached this state of consciousness, the therapist helps the client with certain words. With these words, the experience of conflict and problem in the deeper areas of the unconscious becomes available to the client. Then, during the therapeutic process, it becomes more manageable, easier to bear, and then to be processed, which means alleviation of symptoms, ie, healing.
The client is not alone in the process, the therapist accompanies you throughout the process, so the client is safe. Accompanying also means that the therapist is present but not in control, the client is free to control the process. After each imagination, a deep psychological conversation is used to rework the experiences of the imagination, to discuss and clarify the feelings and thoughts that have arisen in relation to them. In this way, the experiences become conscious.
