Here is an excerpt from my book, Seven Steps to Inner Power:
“Visualization is the process of forming a mental image, and the process of forming images in our mind is called imagining (something most of us do with relative ease).
The word “image” comes from the same Latin root as the word “imitate.” This means that when we form an image, we are imitating or creating a likeness of something else. That something else is an idea. All images, whether those you see outside you or those you see in your mind’s eye, are visible duplications of some idea.”
