A problem with Visualizat
Post # 1
I have a problem with Visualization . No matter how hard I try I cant see any thing. I know that visualization is involved in most if not all spells. Is there a way that it could be fixed?

"....we visualise it. So, the meditation and visualisation go hand in hand. You are painting your canvas. Visualisation encompasses all the senses. What can you see? What can you hear? What can you smell, taste and feel? The more sensory angles you use, the more powerful your visualisation. We practice this skill so that we an create whatever we like in our minds, for intrinsic purposes, or for the purpose of spell craft."

Hello, if I may humbly suggest;
Are you trying to learn meditation for spell work? If so, one of the ways to do this is a combination of visualization and meditation, and it is an exercise to train your mind to hold a single thought that we want. If you wish, may I humbly suggest how to do this?
The whole purpose of meditation is to train your mind to focus, to control your mind from the "chattering monkey"(your brain with many thoughts) so, you clear your mind then, you can think of just your breathing and hum "AUM" for awhile. This is kind of boring so, as an ALTERNATIVE;
One can choose to train their mind in a variation of meditation, yes, clear your mind but much more in that you can hold only the one thought that you want, which is your desire, your intent, that you can charge up with your emotional energy, your wish, your spell. Then, when you think that you have enough of a "clear focused thought" from fully involving your mind as much as you possibly can(from mental training with visualization/meditation) then, you are ready to hold a thought with much emotional energy then, cast it out into the "universal supply."
What do I mean by a "clear focused thought?"
This means clearing your mind and having the intent or one thought that you want to charge up with your five senses and your emotional energy as well. You totally involve your mind in just one thought. In this exercise you will learn a combination of visualization and meditation to accomplish this state of focused mind control.

This basic exercise is holding "one serene scene" in your mind. For example; a placid lake scene, a waterfall scene, a riverside scene, a poolside scene, a beach scene. You can think of others later on, you seem to be a bright person. From any of these peaceful scenes, involve as many of your five(see, feel, hear, smell, taste) senses as is plausible in your "one serene scene."
Try to think of this one scene only for one minute, then two minutes, then three minutes up to five minutes if you want, and longer if you like. Again, this exercise is to train your mind to control your thoughts for another purpose. Or, just meditation in itself is rewarding enough to relieve stress.
Before you relax to meditate; know that you will always have full clarity of mind, you may be totally relaxed but, you will be fully aware of your environment. If a telephone rang, you would be able to quickly come out of your reverie and answer the phone or any minor circumstance that arises then, return to your meditation session. So, try to do this when you think that you will not be disturbed for about a half hour at the most. Do not become irritable if someone comes and disturbs your meditation session! This tends to change your mind from doing this anymore. So, let it be. Be kind.

Here is an example of one scene. A beach scene;
Sit in a comfortable chair or, lye down on your bed or elsewhere or sit in a lotus position, as in yoga style. Whatever. Just choose a position that relaxes you but, does not puts you to sleep.

Now relax, close your eyes and try to quiet your mind and clear your mind by this manner. So, focus on your breathing only and try to slow it down a little bit. If a thought comes into your mind, gently put it aside and state softly in your mind; "I'll get to you later, give me a break." After a few moments of this, then in a relaxed slow fashion, breathe in through your nose and breathe out through your mouth. After a few moments of this to get used to this different kind of breathing, then;
IMAGINE - VISUALIZE in your mind, that you are at a secluded beach, you are sitting down in a chaise-lounge chair under the shade of palm trees gently swaying from a cooling sea breeze. Feel the sea breeze, smell the salty air, feel your self in total comfort enjoying this peaceful beach scene. Look at the light blue sky with some white cumulus clouds and some sea gulls swaying in the wind, dancing in the air and, swooping down to catch their fish to eat. Hear the sea gulls chattering far away, and you welcome these sounds as part of this peaceful beach scene. Now, look at the waves from the azure blue sea gently rolling in, undulating, coming in and out and wetting the sand. Hear these calming waves synchronize with the sea gull sounds like the sound of a beach orchestra, nature's opus. By your side there is a table and you have a cold drink and you take a sip. Be careful not to get "brain freeze!"
You see how many senses are involved in this one serene scene? And, you were totally safe from harm, with no excitement to get your mind off-track. You fully controlled your mind to only focus on what you wanted, just one thought. And, nothing else mattered momentarily. This is true visualization/meditation. This is when you know you are good at it. You don't need to be a master at meditation, unless you want to be a Tibetan Monk or something like that along those lines. All you want is to control your mind to only have one focused thought with as much involvement of your mind as possible. Later on, try a single thought and inject as much emotional energy as you possibly can and also involve as many of your senses as you possibly can as well. What kind of thought to inject emotional energy? Use your imagination. Your spell-work will need this. OK, something easy, try thinking of a $100.00 bill that you clearly have in your hand, close your eyes and imagine you have a $100.00 bill in your hand and you are able to attract them or, they are coming to you or, imagine a car, etc...,
I hope this helps. Blessed Be.

The above was posted to help another out with meditation. But this alternative method will work as a lesson, as it is a combination of visualization and meditation.
Hope this works.
Blessed Be, a paradise for you now, here on this good earth.

This combination of visualization and meditation has been out for about 20 years but, people still can't get the idea that one can combine the two. I have run across this criticism here as I have presented this method before. The criticism goes something like this; Meditation and visualization are not the same! Of course not, here is the difference;
Meditation in a simple definition, is to learn how to clear one's mind, so as to gain peace from stress and also gain insight in a higher consciousness by breathing in a different way and or, humming a certain kind of word or phrase over and over and over again.
Visualization in a simple definition; is simply an image or scene one thinks of in one's mind. For example day dreaming or, imagining an apple to eat or, imagining a car that you see and is very appealing to you that you want to own or, imagining a goal of acquiring a career that you have set your mind upon. But, it is still just an image and has not been taken advantage of in the pretext of mind control for a purpose.
So, in comes a combination of visualization AND meditation! A perfect marriage of the two. I DID NOT COME UP WITH THIS METHOD, AS I HAVE STATED, THIS COMBINATION HAS BEEN AROUND FOR AT LEAST 20 YEARS OR POSSIBLY MORE. People just either think of just visualization or just meditation. But, there is a wonderful world within the two.
Blessed Be.

Yes, please do. Hardly anyone gives me any constructive feedback. Normally it is just criticism out of left field, away from the subject I worked so hard to present.

Try to close your eyes meditate a little and then just feel not with your eyes but with your heart let your sences free what is that sound. For example a dog barking... thin about it visualize it don't see just an image... hear smell.... Think... If that doesn't work try to practise with a photo look at it... look in detail then cose your eyes and make all the details in your head

I tried the methods listed here but they don`t work on me. There is just this pitch darkness. I don`t know maybe I just can`t do it maybe visualization is just not for me or my mind is sealed.

Do you ever daydream? I mean you are reading in class and, you start thinking of something else so much, that your mind shuts out the other noise in the class. That, is visualization.
Have you ever imagined that you want to be somebody, like a professional of some sort? That, is visualization.
Have you ever wanted to go somewhere, like a roadtrip, after seeing the travel channel? That, is visualization.
Start simple. Close your eyes. Think of a red apple. See the stem. turn it around with your imaginary hand. Look at the bottom of it. Look closely at the skin of the apple. The skin is not completely red in some places. Get an imaginary knife. Cut the apple in two. Step by step. This is how this is done. Step by easy step. Easy does it. Nothing hard here. Take it easy.
