Visualizations are directly associated with an unusual energy emitted by the mind.
This energy can affect people and things depending upon its amplitude.
Increasing your directional amplitude depends upon the clarity and duration of your visualization along with the purity of your belief structure; thus results vary from one person to another.
With considerable practice, clear visualizations coupled with a firm belief system can coordinate this energy through you so you might perform feats of psychokinesis, telepathy, levitation and more.
For example, an aikido master's thought process is so clear that he actually begins to toss an aggressor a split second before the moment that physical contact is made.
When a karate grandmaster breaks a board, slow motion photography has shown that the board begins to break a split second before actual contact is made.
This is the power of focused, clear thought in action.
Most people visualize better than they believe they do.
Sexual fantasies are a good example.
You also visualize when you read a novel or listen to a story being told.
Before the advent of TV, people relied heavily on radio stories and novels for their entertainment.
They used their powers of visualization to see the story details in their mind's eye.
TV eliminated the necessity of visualizing.
Without practice in visualization, unused brain cells can deteriorate at an accelerated rate.
To test your clarity and duration during visualization, sit still in a chair with your eyes closed and count from 1 to 100 while projecting onto your inner mental blackboard each numeral as you count.
Stop counting when a stray thought intrudes and note the number.
As with all skills though, practice can allow you to improve your visualization skills.
Now visualize a cube consisting of 27 equal but smaller cubes (3 X 3 X 3).
If the large cube is painted green on the outside, how many of the small cubes are painted on 3 sides?
on 2 sides?
on 1 side?
How many cubes are unpainted?
If you're having trouble with this, make the large cube the size of a house.
Be an observer floating in the air around the house, counting the cubes.
As an exercise in visualization improvement, imagine you have 3 apples in front of you in a row -- the one on the left is red, the one in the center is yellow and the one on the right is green.
Now in your mind's eye, move the one on the right to the center.
Now move the one on the left to the position on the far right.
Now again move the one that now is on the left to the position on the far right.
Now move the one in the center to the far left.
Do you have their correct order in mind?
What color is the apple on the right, in the center, and on the left?
If you're having trouble with this, shift your mental perspective so you are looking down on the apples or maybe even from the side.
Practice on your own moving the apples around until it becomes easy for you.
Practice and perfect your visualization skills.
While listening to people talk, form mental images of the situations that are being described, and constantly strive to improve the clarity and duration of your mental imagery.
