Developing The Art Of Imagination-To Create
How To Visualize
For those who have developed their skills of Visualization, it may be hard to believe that someone has a hard time visualizing, but I am sure that thousands of people do.
Before anything was created, someone saw it first in their imagination, and than took the steps needed to bring it into reality.
The Most Vivid Images Are Life Size
See the result of what you desire in front of you, see yourself accepting a check for your lottery winnings, or see yourself accepting your degree at college graduation. Close your eyes and picture it. See real life size pictures, and don’t try to cram a small picture of it in your mind.
Words In Visualization
Pictures work great, but adding words works better, and the two together work wonders. If you want wealth, see yourself wealthy, and happy, lounging around in your beautiful new home, say to yourself, "I have great wealth, and I have all the money I have ever dreamt of. I am becoming more and more wealthy each day, and it feels great."
Make It Real
If you are playing baseball in your imagination, tell yourself, "I hit it so hard that I knock it out of the park" at the same time, hear, and feel your bat hit the ball, and see yourself running from base to base, to home base. Feel the wind as you run, feel the ground under your feet, and hear the roar of the crowd as you make a home run
It does no good feeling silly, and it won't get you the results you're looking for. See it through your eyes, participate in it, and believe it.
Developing Your Skills
In your visualizations, you are not watching it as though it’s on a television screen, but as you would if it was really happening.
In your imagination you can be, have, and do what you want to. So be the star of your visions. Don't picture it as a movie -- your visualizations should be from your own point of view, and through your eyes.
This can actually be quite difficult; sometimes our brains like to live in 2D because it’s a lot easier, but anything good takes some effort.
Exercise to strengthen your power of visualization
You are by a pool, and there is a red ball lying beside it. It is a hot day, see the Sun sparkle on the water. Feel the heat on your face as you pick up the red ball. Feel the heat on the ball, feel the texture, how full of air it is. Is it wet? Does it need more air? Take it and throw it against the concrete, Hear it hit, does it bounce? Bounce it again, and again
Add other sounds and feelings
