VISUALIZATION EXERCISES

Other Author

The key to all magickal operations is a strong ability to visualize. Everyone can visualize, but some need to strengthen their visualization abilities in order to gain the effects they are working for. The following technique has proved highly effective in intensifying one’s visualizations.

Exercising Your Inner Eye

(Taken from Experiences in Visual Thinking by Robert McKim)

Taking your time, translate each of the following descriptions into a mental image. Go back and do it again in a few weeks and then a few weeks later, and notice the difference. Notice the difference, also in the way you see things–inner as well as outer– after you’ve done these exercises.

Now sense (see, touch, hear, taste, smell) with your mind’s eye:

  • a familiar face
  • a galloping horse
  • a rosebud
  • your bedroom
  • a changing stoplight
  • a newspaper headline
  • the sound of rain on the roof
  • the voice of a friend
  • children laughing at play
  • the feel of soft fur
  • an itch
  • a gentle breeze on your face
  • the muscular feeling of running
  • of kicking a can
  • of drawing a circle on paper
  • the taste of a lemon
  • of toothpaste
  • of a potato chip
  • the smell of bacon frying
  • of a gardenia
  • of perspiration
  • the feeling of hunger
  • of a cough
  • of coming awake

A stone dropped into a quiet pond with concentric ripples forming and expanding outward

These words flying away, high into the blue sky, finally disappearing.

Your shoe coming apart in slow motion and each piece drifting away into space

An orange being cut into five equal pieces and the pieces being arranged into equal patterns
