Imagery is the oldest form of language known to mankind. It is an innate ability of everyone, also the language that our bodies understand. For example, when we think of a lemon, our mouth starts to salivate. Imagine we are rubbing ice cubes along our arms, and goosebumps appear. Our bodies respond to our imagination.
For the same reason, images have a powerful impact on our minds. Our memories are often triggered by something outside; be they an image, a scent, a sound/voice, a taste or a touch, or a meeting with someone. When we recall a memory, we relive the emotions we have experienced with the memory. As long as the image stays the same in our minds, we will trigger the same emotional responses.
Once we repair a negative image using our imagination, we allow a new situation to happen. Our physical body, mind, and emotions will find a new way to work together. What we need to do to heal ourselves is to respond to the necessity of the image. We are at the service of the image that appears.
Imagery is also the language that our subconscious uses to communicate with us, such as through night dreams. Dreams are messengers from the subconscious. Like undercurrent waves, they rise to the surface carrying messages from our subconscious long before our conscious mind is even aware that something is happening. Pay attention to your dreams; they are your evening news bulletin. Free of charge, they inform you, showing you in images and words how your body and your emotions are faring.
Meditation is removing yourself from attachment, through disengaging your bodies.
Our way (Imagery) is to engage all of our bodies (both energetic and physical), to walk through the forest and face our beasts, live the journey and repair it along the way. It takes courage to do so. The goal is to reach the truest self in light.
The teachings of SAPHIRE® imagery are based on the Kabbalah of Light, an ancient mystic Jewish study that dates back to Isaac the Blind of Provence, France, and Jacob Ben Sheshet of Gerona, Spain in the 13th century. The last lineage holder of this knowledge was Madame Colette Aboulker-Muscat, a revered kabbalist in Jerusalem. Colette passed the lineage to Dr. Catherine Shainberg, who has studied and worked with her for 30 years. Dr. Shainberg found The School of Images in New York City in 1982, to teach students around the world about the modern usage of imagery and dream works.
