Visualization Exercises for Bunions

Picture yourself having beautiful feet

I'm very much used to the sight of my own feet, with a bunion on each one. And I guess the same holds true for you. Maybe we don't even know anymore what beautiful feet look like, let alone feel like! That's were these visualization exercises come in.

Before you start doing one of the visualization exercises below, you have to do a little preparation. This is what I do. First, I make myself comfortable in my hammock (or sometimes in my favorite chair or on the couch). It doesn't matter where, as long as you're in a comfortable position and won't be distracted or disturbed for a while.

Next, I close my eyes and try to relax. This isn't always easy. Usually I start by taking some slow, deep breaths. Then I try to clear my mind by picturing a big black 0 (zero) on a white piece of paper. When I'm in a relaxed state of mind, I let the 0 fade out and start visualizing.

exercises for bunions - sand Visualization 1

I'm lying on a beautiful beach. The sky is deep blue and I feel the sun warming my body. I smell the sea and become aware of the faint taste of salt on my lips. This is why I love the sea. It reminds me of our family holidays long ago. I hear children playing and feel the soft touch of sand against my feet, between my toes. I look at them and admire their shape. They're beautiful.
exercises for bunions - water Visualization 2

I'm sitting on the edge of a swim­ming pool. I just had a fruit shake and its taste still lingers in my mouth. I feel the sun on my skin and smell the sun spray I've used to protect myself. Behind me I hear people chat­ting with each other. I love sitting on the edge of the pool like this, my feet – nails polished red – splashing about in the blue water. I enjoy the sight of my beautiful, well cared for feet.
exercises for bunions - grass Visualization 3

I'm sitting in a garden chair, my legs stretched out in front of me. The grass is green, and daisies are everywhere. It's early afternoon and I've made myself comfortable with a book and a cup of my favorite tea. As I'm sipping my tea, enjoying its aroma and taste, I become aware of a bird singing nearby. I gently move my bare feet. The grass underneath them feels soft and cool. I'm so happy when I look at my beautiful and healthy feet.

If you use your own visualizations, make sure they include all of your senses: add colors, sounds, aromas, tastes, and touch. And don't forget to add an emotion too. That way your visualization becomes more 'real'. It'll help your mind 'experience' what beautiful and healthy feet look and feel like.
