Hi everyone, this is Dr. Lynn and welcome to Vision Beyond Sight!
Today is another special show. Many of you who listen regularly to the podcast hear so many of the speakers discuss how they utilize visualization – starting at a very young age to adults. Today, I continue to speak about the Power of Visualization. This podcast is Part 2 that tackles the utilization of visualization for academic success. (Refer to Part 1 here!) Over the next several months, there will be additional Visualization topics to include visualization for sports, stress/anxiety, and more.
Just a little bit about my story of how and why I started into visualization. As the founder and Co-owner of Hellerstein & Brenner Vision Center, I’ve been a developmental optometrist for more than 45 years. My emphasis has always been in the area of vision therapy.
I’ve had the opportunity to help thousands of people transform their lives through their vision training and visualization. People with learning and reading problems, special needs, double vision, crossed eyes, lazy eyes, ADHD, dyslexia, and/or brain injury have greatly benefited from this vision work, as have athletes, musicians and exceptional performers.
Now, my passion has shifted from treating patients individually with traditional vision problems to empowering people to utilize their inner vision through visualization. The transformation started in 2002, when I had significant health issues and found my health and mental healing through functional medicine physicians and psychologist Dr. Deb Sandella who created the RIM program (Releasing Inner Memories). Dr. Deb’s work was about utilizing visualization which was part of our vision therapy program to a much deeper level. She involved a much more multi-sensory approach, which has influenced my work with myself and others.
My mission is: to inspire and empower millions of people through their vision and visualization skills so that they may see and experience their world through the lens of clarity, courage and confidence.

Do It! process, you get the ‘ta-da!’ the transformation in your life and the step forward.” – Dr. Lynn Hellerstein
