In brief: Imagery technique
Guided imagery involves the use of selective awareness to carefully choose your thoughts, emotions, and the images they give rise to.
Imagery is the language your mind speaks and is ideal for communicating with your mind and discovering what it is telling you. By wisely guiding your imagination gradually towards an accepting, focused state of awareness, you change your mind and change your life.
