Visualization ... You Can Do It!
Almost on a daily basis, we inform others how powerful
"visualization" is. And perhaps, because you are reading this,
you also might say what we hear from many clients ... I have
tried to visualize and for some reason, I'm not able to see
that which I want in my mind's eye ... I find it tremendously
difficult to visualize different things in my mind.
Well, it may be because you're trying too hard. You know you can visualize images because you do it
very realistically each time you dream. But that is in a
hyper-relaxed state, which is necessary for the brain
waves that enable such a "solid" dream world. During the
day, it is still best to be relaxed in order to visualize,
but the nature of what you create is more of the nature
of imagination. Think of a pink elephant. There, you did,
but you may not have seen it before your eyes, just got
the concept and a sort of wishy-washy image in a parallel
space. That's visualization, and all the creative
exercises requiring visualization will work on that level.
So just let go of your verbal thinking and dream away ...
imagine and don't "try to visualize" ... and you'll do fine.
With practice, you'll find you get better at accessing
the right-brain's processing of imagery and intuition,
and further abilities that some people seem to have and
others not ... like sensing subtle energies ... will also begin
to appear. Practice is the key, and confidence that you
ARE doing it well enough already.
