Visualization - a term that has become well known thanks to Jung, to undertake comprehensive studies of the human mind and psyche. But even before the term of Jung and the concept existed in the older and less well-known science, which laid the foundations of Buddhism and meditation.
However, not only in Buddhism, and there are meditation techniques, not only in meditation begins and ends with visualization.
Visualization - the property of the human mind that can reproduce the visible and invisible visual images (visual) of the series in my mind. In fact - images that our mind perceives as a visual image, or a sense of the visual image.
According to the description is similar to the images that we see in dreams, but to sleep and the state of complete mental relaxation that is hidden behind visualization, has no direct relationship.
First, the visual images that arise in the mind of man can be divided into two categories - visual images of a number of visual sensations and images of the series.
Images of a number of visual - pictures, symbols, symbols that occur in human consciousness in the waking state. This is something that can "see" the brain, bypassing the well-known visual receptors.
The images of the visual sensation of a number - the same images and symbols, themes that arise in our consciousness as a sense of vision, but the main aspect in the form of the visual image is missing. That is why the concept and is called "a sense of visual range," indicating that a person only feels, but does not see the picture image.
And this is just the first thing to describe, before we move on to the next part of our conversation, which consists of questions:
Why do we need visualization?
What does the visualization?
What side effects when working with visual images?
Types of visualizations.
A. The visual imagination.
The ability to manipulate people (to perceive the world around us), images, stories, parts of the present or the future of the process.
Skill is manifested in the form of a direct reflection using visual range, and with a more simple categories, such as the drawing of patterns, lines, during the deliberation. This process is comparable to making music or writing a picture when the image appears as if by itself.
The positive features of the visual imagination - easy adaptation of new information, the ability of higher quality and easier to operate with incoming information.
Negative traits - conservative or stereotypical perceptions based on a comparative basis of the available rights. That is, people can "see" in the category that "familiar" to him on the basis of his personal perception. And, as a consequence of these manifestations of this database possible breakthrough fears, concerns, worries over the visual range.
Two. Visual thinking.
In contrast to the visual imagination, visual thinking is directed to systematize and organize the information and those stories that occur in human life.
A person with visual thinking, capable of forming a picture of present and future events, and processes, which, of course, very often simplifies the analysis of what is happening, because the "see" or "see" the shortcomings of a lot easier than in the ordinary verbal thought.
Positive traits - the ability to build from visual art to see the flaws of the plot or plan, as well as the ability to implement it, actually seeing the changes that take place in it. This improves process control and quality of implementation.
Negative features - similar to the negative aspects of visual imagination and lies in the fact that a person be restricted to within their perception of the base. The second characteristic feature of the negative - the loss of touch with reality, as the "visible" plan and a realistic plan may differ somewhat due to the presence in the latter the human factor. And it often displays the project's state of mind.
Three. The visual perception.
The perception of the world and the processes occurring in it, due to embedded visual habits - images, stereotypes, categories that are understandable and familiar to man.
The sky is blue, clear water, etc. - All categories of the series, which are embedded in a person from birth until the present day.
The person with the skills of visual perception as it captures the whole story completely, and then, if necessary, its details, or arranges, which gives him the opportunity to operate as an information-based impressions from what he saw, and on the basis of understanding what he saw.
Positive traits - an easy assimilation of information relating to the humanities. These people feel perfectly around the world feel all the nuances and all of its subtleties. The rich picture of the perception of the world and the ability to obtain information and experience from several sources.
Negative traits - limited perception of their own visual database, which, though growing, but is faltering, going on an extremely negative connotations, or misinterpretations. Often there is a conflict between the sensuous and the logical components of human perception.
4. Visual Planning.
The concept, which is closely related to visual thinking, and talking to us about that man builds his life, deeds and plans of their own with the help of visual images. He imagines pictures and images that are close to reality, they form their own aspirations.
It uses a visual planning techniques such as sigilizatsiya - the materialization of the plan, desire, desire.
Positive traits - voluminous and detailed plan of the plot is much easier to implement. All the more so by the visual image is the growing influence of such a plot on the human psyche, and as a consequence, his thoughts and actions.
Negative traits - the complexity of the transmission of visual images to other people who do not possess such skills or have a visual basis. As a result, possible conflicts in the perception and understanding.
Areas of intersection with clairvoyance.
All categories are closely related to the visualization of such a concept as a vision that has the prefix "clear." In fact, clairvoyance, yasnooschuschenie, clairgnosis are manifestations of visualization - the ability of man to adapt the information received by him in the form and the form which is customary for him.
Of course, the habit (and sometimes a gift) can develop and strengthen. But this is not about what is the phenomena that we talked about, and how they relate to the ability to perceive information.
Therefore, you should understand that the image that is seen or felt - the ability of the human brain to transmit information to the visual range. It is no accident that see less ornate and unusual present the information about what they saw. It is simply the language spoken by their inner world.
Visualization is the intentional and unintentional.
Intentional visualization - the desire or the desire of man, caused by the application of mental effort in the formation of the desired image. In fact, the person "wants" and the story paints a picture or some content.
Such visualization is common in meditation, the techniques associated with the achievement of the desired, when the picture is the image of the model, which seek to vizualist.
Involuntary visualization - an image that occurs in humans spontaneously, without effort or desire. Perhaps as a response to a question, and perhaps as part of a plot, linked to real events.
It is the visualization of involuntary clairvoyance and everything that has the prefix "clear", that is, obtaining information without the use of his will, and therefore with minimal distortion and maximum possible quality.
And after we gave a brief, but hopefully, it is sufficient definition visualization, you can go to the answers to these questions:
Why do we need visualization?
Visualization - a property of human consciousness that can provide another tool to work with reality. That is, with what the world can be perceived more vividly, and the means to see and understand a bit more.
What does the visualization?
Part of this question we answered earlier, but if you go to the specifics that make technology work with visual images, it is primarily the achievement of planned, which is not a wish-phrases, enclosing a human "want", and a more realistic image.
What side effects when working with visual images?
For each of the manifestations of these imaging techniques are described side effects, but if we talk about the main thing, then of course it is a substitution of notions. The images it is easy to build castles, it is easy to destroy. But back to the reality of this ease is replaced by the real laws of the physical world, which imposes its own requirements. And the conflict that can occur in man, seriously complicates his life.
And finally I would like you to think about ideas. Think of how imaging manifestations include the terms: dream, fantasy, illusion, dream, fantasy ...
Speaking of visualization, we can not ignore what, where and how, and most importantly, for what reason it is used in magical visualization techniques, techniques of self-improvement and self-development techniques.
And the first thing you should start this meditation technique in which imaging plays an important, if not the most important place.
If we talk about meditation in general, this technology, built on the principle of assistance in setting certain conditions, especially the internal state of the man himself. And setting it occurs due to an internal rhythm, and by fixing the attention on the visual image, which is set initially or formed during the exercise.
Visualization of the fixed image
This method is based on the fact that most of the picture-images, which sees a man, have some influence on him. The reason for this effect is quite simple - each person has its own set of perceptions and stereotypes of the set, which causes him or another reaction. It is the expectation of such a reaction, and calculated the majority of meditation techniques.
However, looking at a figure in meditation does not work, since it impedes the natural external stimuli that distract from the internal state of a person. Moreover, the picture as the image and perception of the picture should be in, in the man himself.
With this purpose in meditation there is a description of the area, and other figurative characteristics that a person plays in your mind, bringing not only the look but also the feel of this image.
It is also a huge plus in the creation of this image lies in the fact that man creates his own, adapted, or the stereotypical image that is acceptable to him personally.
Visualization of variable images
In contrast to the fixed image, variable image is formed gradually changing - supplemented, corrected, depending on the purpose of a person or meditation.
In this case, freedom of expression, as well as the freedom of setting is much higher, because change is possible according to the will of man himself.
This meditation, visualization, not only captures the inner rhythm of man, but also can customize it, send in the right direction and in the right direction.
Visualization of experience
This is one of the most complex meditations, as visualized by feelings of man. Be the release of his subconscious and his perception of the world of images.
The key word of this meditation may be: "I feel, I see."
Of course, some analogies suggest themselves to sleep, but in this case, the level of awareness and control of a person are much higher.
Visualization of sound
In contrast, visualization of sensations, sounds, visualization primarily aims to reproduce in an image, moving or static pictures, sounds that people hear in meditation or exercise.
This reproduction of mantras or prayers, music. At least - spells and charms that resonate in the form of an image.
This is an extremely delicate operation scheme, because people like to shifts in their perception of the world at the level of unconscious or reflex responses. And in this case, the most he learns a lot about his principles of philosophy.
This visualization, which has featured several visualizations, and can not be classified as one thing. In fact it is a mixture of techniques and the mix of approaches, which have resorted to those for whom such an accessible level.
Direct visualization of the rite
Direct visualization of the rite used in those techniques, when the magnetic field (operator) to create images and designs of the astral plane (energy). And then the imaging technique allows for more quality work through issues of power of influence, or to create better design, than if it was done without visualization.
For this kind of visualization is the creation of a phantom - a person or object with which the magician carries out all kinds of magical manipulation - treats, renders and other corrective manipulation. After a phantom man (and in fact it shaped and Energy a copy) has undergone all the changes necessary to magician, he is sent to the owner, to changes in the phantom were changes to the host.
To the category of visual phantoms are phantoms, and those are the images that arise in the form of human figures, or flashes of different energies that belong to the people as a manifestation of their thoughts and emotions.
With these phantoms is almost impossible to work because they are secondary with respect to communication with the person.
Visualization rite back
This kind of visualization is a category of vision, as the magician (operator) does not see those actions, which he will perform, as if to help himself in the form of visual images, and those actions and display them in a more subtle planes, which he has committed or is committing.
This high level of magic, because not only does the magician, but really to see what is happening with regard to its effects. Provided, of course, if he sees, and can not imagine what he wants.
