Comments on: How to Develop Your Visualization Skill Exploring ways to use our minds efficiently. Mon, 16 Dec 2013 07:19:11 +0000 hourly 1 By: Daniel Mon, 11 Apr 2011 13:14:09 +0000 My mind works in a similar way to yours, but i am trying to improve my visualization skills so that i can use the Memory palace technique to my most potential..
In my mind When i read My visualization comes in naturally as i am not trying to control it and i have a very vivid picture of whats being described but to do a simple task of trying to visualize an object like a pen is very difficult for me to do on command, i have tried all sorts from trying to describe the pen (object) in all its detail to just relaxing my mind knowing what i want to see too walking into my memory palace and picking it up off the table.

The best results i have had so far are outlines of the pen but no colour and a silhouette of the pen.

Can anyone describe their step by step way of training their non visual mind into being able vividly see a scene or whatever object in thier minds eye if you had previously struggled with this task but can now do it easilly.

I want to know if you describe the scene or object with your minds voice to summon the visual or whatever the process is that you go through to mentally create the picture clearly in your mind with no cloudyness or looming darkness with bright flashing azura clouds and what not.

Thank you for your insights.

Except I don’t hear anything in my head but my own voice. It’s kind of bothering me, the most I can do is see color as in I close my eyes and see green or red instead of black and even this I can’t do consistently.
I can visualize pretty well however if I’m stoned and hallucinogenics also give me strong visual hallucinations.
I function normally as a human being with above average iq and quite good spatial relations skills oddly enough but I’d love to be able to visualize without any drugs.

I have never thought that way about reading fiction! I’ve always seen ‘increasing storytelling/writing abilities’ and ‘relaxation’ as the only two major benefits.

Thanks for the insight!

By: Hayk Wed, 14 Apr 2010 17:08:08 +0000 I think important is also part of visualization is to read fiction, especially sci-fi and fantasy for obvious reasons.

I developed visualization by reading Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time. Any book that gives details about places, clothes, events etc and is also an engaging read will help develop this skill!

Thanks for sharing your perspective. I’m a highly visual-oriented person, so it’s always nice to know how more kinesthetic people like you see — I mean, feel — the world. 🙂

TO: All and Starfire from Mindfulness and Wonderment

Yes, I too am weak in the visualizing arena.
I am excellent in the kinesthetic realm.
(When asked to visualize a single candle burning, I see the flame being blown out – poof – dark!)

When asked how I feel about something, often I am a vessel through which love and support come through to others.

I think it is very helpful to listen to many teachers AND especially the teacher within you.
Yes, practice will in time build skills (I DID make myself stronger by practicing what gym and psychology coaches taught me.)
AND … I love the strength U was born with and I leverage that strength for my own happiness and success and the happiness and success of others.

When I really “listen deeply to how I FEEL”, I almost always make the right decision and feel better in whatever I do. Before attending an important business meeting I did NOT try to visualize myself there connecting with people and so on.

I stood quietly deciding whether or not to wear a somewhat outrageous t-shirt of an old man (ever see it?) “Growing old is not for Sissies” – with great photo of confident 68 year old man with hand weights – really inspiring photo realism on my chest.

Yes, this DOES feel right – ok ON goes the shirt and BOOM within minutes at the meeting I made a great connection with a woman at the conference who loved the t shirt (she is an athlete). Our conversation was peppered with smiles and laughs and before I knew it she invited me to share my business ideas with her at her place of business the following week. (I learned that she was an influential executive at a company I have “always wanted to visit”!)

Long story short – yes practice a variety of improvements and lean into and lean upon your strengths – they are your gifts to share with the world.

Is this helpful?

Love and friendship and respect to all,

good job! Developing visualisation was a part of my PhD research. In fact,visualisation helped many EFL students to read and understand literary texts.
