At FinerMinds and MindValley we do everything to try and connect with our readers and customers. We’re always wondering what’s on your minds and how we can better help you, so we begin creating a series of videos to help answer your biggest questions.

At our sister sites, such as the American Monk, Silva Life System, and Quantum Jumping, one of the biggest questions we get asked is, “How can I improve my creative visualization?” It makes sense that this question comes up since most personal growth techniques and courses advocate creative visualization.

So to help answer the question (you’re probably thinking it too), check out the video below. I teach a technique called Image Streaming that will help you improve your ability to visualize.

Go here to watch this creative visualization video on YouTube

If you guys have any other big burning personal growth or spirituality questions, please drop a comment and share. I’ll try to answer the most asked ones.

    Great!!! It had not occured to me!

    Jeanne Houston, in a January 2011 teleconference, too the idea of using the senses in visualization to a new level – for me! The idea was to visualize or get in touch with one's purpose in life. And Jeanne said to use all the senses to make the idea more tangible. This is what many meditation leaders say — and it is too fast to actually get in touch with any of the senses.

    The new and different part was when Jeanne Houston said, "remember what an orange smells like. remember what a pine forest smells like. remember what fresh-mown grass smells like. Now smell your purpose / project." She repeated this for each of the senses. Once tangible, real-life memories of smell, taste, sight, touch and hearing were stimulated, it was much easier to also "smell, taste, see, touch, and hear" my project — even when one would ordinarily only "see" and "think about".

    This has greatly enhanced my ability to use my physical senses in creative visualization!

    Loved this. Wish somebody would have suggested this years ago. I was always trying to see a big picture with me in it. Trying to do this always made me feel like I was having one of those dreams that I could not move or barely see in. Thanks,

    Hi,

    You have over 450,000 subscribers! That is an awesome responsibility. Have you thought about the example of Creative Visualization/Image Streaming that was given out, being only material one? All of these people that are visiting your site are opening their hearts and minds and learning from you! How about an example of healing for the Mother Earth, or peace, physical / emotional / spiritual healing, or connectedness to All as an example, since what you are giving is so powerful? I know it was just an example, but, all that energy and focus can be placed on something that will benefit all of us. Just a thought…

    I can see my life improving almost daily. Nothing is impossible. Miracles seem to be happening all around me.

    Vishen, do you believe that you just have to mail your letter only once? I mean, you make a list with the things you want and of course those things will only bring more value to the world, but in order to get them you just have to visualize the end result while at the same time release your need to have them? Detach yourself from the outcome in order to get it, because if you don't, you are in fact resisting and you are sabotaging yourself? What do you think?
    You think that you need to have the list ready, see yourself as already having achieved your goals and then surrender, leave it all to the Universe?

  • I tried this technique yesterday and I must admit that the technique did help me visualise better. Incorporating all of the senses into the description makes the picture even more vivid. It also alerted me to the fact that some of this I've been doing most of my life! Making a little bit more sense as to how things started happening when I really put my heart and mind into the things that I've wanted.

    This is incorrect instruction for Imagestreaming…..it is supposed to be totally spontaneous.

    Great visualisation Video, and will help me with my writings – by the way your looking great in the vid Vishen :)

  • Avatar Regina Moreira says:

    Vishen,
    The visualization in the alpha level can manifest, but sometimes takes too long to materialize. We must learn serendipity. Do you know about it? Can you help us to practice it?
