So, visualization in a nutshell, is the ability to see things through our mind's eye. Visualization is a very important skill in Magick, so we need to know how to visualize something vividly. I've received mails from quite a few people really saying.. ." oh no I cannot visualize" , " my imagination is weak, I've lost this ability", "I'm grown up, I cannot visualize".
No, no, no, no, no. Don't get discouraged! There's a solution for everything. Okay? There are lots of exercises you can do to improve/strengthen (you name it) your visualization. So, let's see some exercises you can do very easily. These exercises are great for beginners. So try them out.
Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Now visualize a triangle. Focus on the triangle. Make it look real. Hold this image for 1 minute straight. After that, give a color to the triangle. Let's say yellow. Visualize a yellow triangle. Hold this image for 1 minute. Now visualize a circle, right next to the yellow triangle. Hold this image for 1 minute straight. Make sure you're in a quiet place... and there are not any distractions. Focus on this image for a while. Try to visualize the circle and the triangle as vividly as possible. Now give the circle a color. Let's say... red for example. You have 1 yellow triangle and 1 red circle. See them. Twist them around. Make them move. Hold this image for a while. That's it. It wasn't difficult at all, was it?:)
Take a pen and place it right in front of you. Take a few deep breaths, and relax a tad bit. Take the pen and place it onto your hands. Touch it. Look at it, look at its details... do this for about a minute or so. "Study" it. After you're done, place the pen on your desk. Close your eyes. Relax. Take a few deep breaths and try to visualize the pen on your desk. With your eyes closed of course. See the desk. Feel its texture. See the pen. Feel its texture. Visualize it as vividly as possible. Know that the pen is there. Hold this image for a few seconds to minutes (it's up to you). Remain concentrated. Now visualize that your hand touching the pen. Feel it. Visualize a blank piece of paper, and write with the pen. Write whatever you want, it's up to you. Write your name. Visualize writing your name with the pen. Hold this image for a minute. After you've done that, write, 1,2,3,4...10. See the numbers See the pen. See the paper. Know they're there. Make them look as if they're really there.That's it. Simple as that.:)
Sit in a comfortable position, and close your eyes. Breathe deeply. Now, visualize:
Hold these images... for 1 minute to several minutes.
Now let's make this exercise more difficult, or should I say, more "tricky"?
Take a few deep breaths, sit in a comfortable position and make sure there are no distractions.
Alright, these were 4 very simple exercises for everyone, yes for everyone. Try these exercises several times. Add stuff on them. It's your mind. It's your imagination. Visualize everything as vividly as possible. As if it's really there...
Now someone might ask... why do I have to learn how to visualize things? This skill is very important in Magick. You can use it in
It's an important skill that we all have to work on.
Hope this helps. :
