Visualization is an important part of hypnosis. You "see" yourself in your mind's eye doing something the way you want to do it. This can apply to performing a sports skill, playing a difficult piece on the piano, or giving a speech at a meeting. If you are afraid of flying, you can visualize yourself looking forward to your flight and boarding happily. You can see yourself as if you were someone else looking on, or feel the emotions you would have and see yourself from the inside. When a hypnotherapist or facilitator guides you through the visualization, it is called guided imagery.
