Rapid Visualization Writing I

Here are the steps for Rapid Visualization Writing I:

1. Gently pinch your right nostril shut and breathe through your left nostril only for 12 deep and full inhalations and exhalations. When you've concluded the breaths, remove your hand and resume regular breathing. Ask yourself the following questions and feel the responses in your body. Take your time.

Which is more relaxed, your right arm or your left arm? Just note the difference and move to the next question.
Which is more relaxed your right leg or your left leg?
Which is more relaxed the top half of your body or the bottom half? Proceed to step (2)


(2) Roll your eyes clockwise, then counter clockwise (Just once). Close your eyes for the remainder of the exercise. Hum whatever appeals to you. Let the humming do the humming. There is no concern about musicality here. Just hum for a minute or so allowing your unconscious to make up any tune it prefers. Then to engage the rest of your senses briefly: Picture a door, taste a sour lemon, feel what you'd feel if you stroked a cat or dog's fur, and smell perfume. Each of these senses is only engaged for a few seconds each and imperfectly. It's just to activate the brain's various sense centers prior to writing.

(3) Choose any object, scene, or event you would like to visualize. Picture, feel, hear, taste, and smell what you intend to visualize.

(4) Rapidly and without censor write out all the details of what you're visualizing. Write out more and more detail. Just go over and over rapidly writing out all the details of your objects and events. Before long you'll have some very sharply detailed objects and events. Rapid and uncensored writing, which comes from our deeper intuitive side, helps us create visual images with greater detail, clarity, and believability.
