Mental imagery triggers emotions and how to shift the triggers using Logosynthesis

How emotions are triggered by mental imagery & how to shift them.

What triggers our emotions?

Our emotions play a powerful role in how we experience the world around us. They can motivate us, inspire us, and bring us joy, but they can also hold us back and cause us pain. Understanding how our emotions are triggered and learning to manage them is an essential part of personal growth and well-being.

One way that our emotions are triggered is through mental imagery. When we imagine a situation or experience in our minds, it can trigger automatic reactions in the form of thoughts, emotions and physical sensations. It’s as if we are actually experiencing it in real life. For example, if you imagine a past traumatic event, it can trigger the same fear and anxiety that you felt at the time. Some imagery you can control. Others are intrusive and can occur automatically.

This process can be problematic when we have negative or limiting mental images that are holding us back. These images can keep us stuck in patterns of fear, anxiety, or self-doubt, preventing us from living our best lives. However, by learning to work with these images, we can begin to shift our emotions and create positive change.

How can we shift mental imagery?

This is where Logosynthesis comes in. Logosynthesis is a powerful model that guides you to release energy frozen in distressing mental images. When resolve, the thoughts emotions and body sensations also fall away. Using a simple, repeatable technique, you are guided to identify the specific images, sounds and other sensory perceptions that trigger distress. You then use three specific sentences to shift the energy frozen in the perception for immediate and sustained relief.

For example, if you have a mental image of failing at delivering a presentation, you can experience anxiety. You can use the Logosynthesis Basic Procedure to shift this energy. Examples of what people notice after applying the technique can include:

  • the image and the emotions disappears
  • the image shifts to something that is no longer distressing, such as a successful presentation
  • it may bring to mind an older memory of failing at a presentation, which can then be resolved with a cycle of Logosynthesis

If older, distressing memories are activated, you can use a second cycle of the sentences to shift that image. For deeper issues and more complex traumas, it is highly recommended to get the support of a trained professional.
