A kinesthetic (tactile) visualization process will enhance inert-gas therapy.

Some of the visualization exercises indicated below have been described in Robert Bruce’s book “Astral Dynamics” (Part 2).  Basically, these exercises increase the etheric body’s capacity to absorb inert-gas-associated subtle energies.

When you stimulate by a variety of visualizations the sensation of tingling, tapping, warmth, or cool (i.e., the typical inert-gas sensations) in various body points, you usually will be able to transfer the same sort of energy into the spinal cord injury area.

A helpful visualization couples the breathing sensation with the sensation of some pressure, tingling, or brushing on the skin taken more deeply into the body. For example, on inhalation, sense the feet being brushed by a paintbrush and, in turn, that sensation coming up the legs, up through the trunk, moving up through the shoulder and head region, and then back down, ending up in the area just below the naval. When exhaling, visualize the reverse with the energy moving back up into the head and shoulder and down and out the feet.

Once there is a tingling sensation, try to extend it, imagining what it would feel like if it is a brushing, tingling, tapping, warmth, coolness, or if it was extended further into areas of numbness, to move through the border regions, to play with the idea of the sensation of the energy itself, and then once you are more familiar with this sensation, to put it into the spinal cord injury area. Increase the sensation by visualizing the energy from the inert-gas device pouring through you, enhancing the movement of these subtle energies.

Again, this is a kinesthetic visualization, in which the sensation is provoked, sometimes by means unique to you, e.g., tapping with a feather, brushing with a paintbrush, tapping lightly with the fingers, and a very gentle, almost imperceptible squeezing action by the fingers as in an extremely gentle brushing massage. There are many possibilities. Sometimes, the process is best activated by actually providing the paintbrush, feather, squeezing sensations by fingers, etc. But as soon as possible, any physical action should be stopped so that these processes can be immediately coupled into the sense of kinesthetic visualization.

If you are visually predisposed, combine color visualizations with the kinesthetic stimulation. It could be a white light pouring through the body to purify and cleanse, a blue light to purify and calm the mind, a yellow light in the heart to awaken and strengthen, and in the spine, various other healing colors. (To determine if you are if you are visually predisposed, someone can ask you to visualize a room, providing a basic outline of what is in the room, and then ask you deeper questions about it. If you can respond with details that are clearly visually related, i.e., color, shape, form, size, etc., then include visual elements.)

This kinesthetic and visual coupling is often helpful. For example, on exhaling, visualize the skin pores opening adjacent to the spinal cord injury area. What is released is allowed. Thus, one recognizes the color. It may be brown or black as if a toxic smoke is being released. On inhalation, as the skin pores open in the injury area, other colors are recognized. For example, a healing blue, emerald energy, or clearing, strengthening, fusing yellow light may be perceived as entering the pores. Allow the colors to change as necessary.

Similarly, if you have an auditory predisposition, imagine various sounds, even intoning pitches that seem to resonate internally with the affected body area. For example, you may intone a particular chakra-associated syllable or word. 

To jumpstart the process, use recordings of sounds or, in the case of the visually predisposed, light as used in light therapy. Later, however, continue the visualization processes without such aids.

Albeit more difficult, smell or taste sensations also can be used. For example, imagine the taste of foods that seem inherently strengthening to you. Smell, such as with aromatherapy, also can be a powerful modality.
