I can testify to the impact of working with images. Having spent literally years in the throes of a tough career choice, finally in 2012 I left behind the labyrinth of decision-making and the quicksand of fear. This happened when I took up Michele Martin on her offer to provide Career Clarity Image Center Sessions. Between the insights I gained as I developed open-ended questions and created collages to explore them, and Michele’s guidance in exploring their meaning more deeply, I got a grip. I identified my strengths and resources, focused on what I truly wanted, faced down some giant-sized fears and got moving. I reached an island of calmness and certainty and from there, was able to put in place my plan for transitioning to self-employment.
The “left-brainers” among us are very used to words. Writing them, thinking in them, reading them; we are taught this and rewarded for it in school. We might be skeptical about image-based ways of knowing. Words are without a doubt powerful. Take a look at these powerful environmental quotes to bring that point home. The most powerful words derive their impact from the images they create. Imagery provides an important way of activating our brain’s capacity for integrating thoughts, feelings, experiences, information, hopes, plans, and goals.
