“Visualization meditation is the method of picturing positive images, ideas, symbols, or using affirmations and mantras to help calm the mind while the body is in a relaxed state,” says Ariel Van Alstyne, a reiki practitioner and meditation guide for online health and wellness platform Vivaya. This is an all-purpose style of meditation—the only limit is what you can conjure up in your mind. “You can do a visualization meditation to help ease pain, send love to people near and far, or help you manifest your goals,” says reiki master, chef, and nutritionist Serena Poon. “Athletes also often use visualization as a performance-enhancing technique. And energy healers often use this in their practice to send distal energy.”
