FAQ for Users


  • How and why does visualization work?

    • There are many scientific studies supporting the power of visualization.  Mental practice (rehearsing a skill in your mind) can actually improve physical performance.

    • Brain imagery studies show that when people imagine a movement, the same areas of their brains are activated as when they perform that movement.

    • By repeatedly activating the motor networks for a movement without actually doing the movement, the communication between the neurons associated with that movement is strengthened.

    • Simply put, neuro-pathways are reinforced by imagining actions.

  • What are the benefits of listening to prompts to form mental images?

    • Audio prompts help a listener focus on the mental exercises.  Guided imagery facilitates the listener’s practice by providing appropriate time for the listener to create detailed pictures in his/her mind.

    • Although many people believe in the power of visualization, they do not have the tools to develop a focused mental imagery practice on their own.  Everyone’s mind wanders during mental imagery practice—it is natural.

    • Now there is a revolutionary resource, ODIBODI, that helps minimize distractions and keeps users on track with guided visualization.  ODIBODI’s ever-expanding library of exercises provides critical support for developing a consistent mental imagery practice. 

  • How many times do I have to listen to recordings to see a benefit?

    • As the saying goes…practice makes perfect.  The more you listen to recordings, the more effective the exercises become.

  • How can I make my own exercises and submit to the ODIBODI library?

    • You can record your own Odi under "My Odis" in the app, and email the file to

    • Alternatively, you can submit a typed outline for an Odi under "Submit your Odi" in the app, and we will convert it into an audio file.

    • Feel free to follow the guidelines for making an ODIBODI recording:
