dc.description.abstractThe focus of Investigation for this study was imagery specifically related to three events from my past having to deal with anxiety. The qualitative, heuristic research design utilizes the phases outlined in Moustakas (1990) as follows: initial engagement, immersion, incubation, illumination, explication, and creative synthesis. The methodology employed consisted of asking and answering pertinent questions directly relating to experience to find meaning and essences of the imagery. The outcome revealed the history of the image and its relationship to anxiety through exposure of contributing circumstances. Conclusions support the view that imagery effectively limited debilitating effects of anxiety. Through processes of illumination, incubation, and clarification, the heuristic process successfully facilitated integration of the image.en_US
