Art of Visualization and Meditation

What is the art of Visualization and Meditation?

How can you use Visualisation for meditation? There are many types of meditation, and many people realize the importance of meditation in their lives. Even medical practitioners now accept meditation as a way to deal with health issues like depression.

Meditation is considered an artwork in itself. It takes a lot of practice to master it. If you are really into meditation, then you will get better with the art of visualization.

Almost every individual uses visualization. But this is extra evident amongst kids; as people grow older, they use this method much less. Children are full of wild imaginations. Although you are unaware of it, you are using visualization in a way or another. What you must do, is to know that you are doing it and be more conscious of yourself.

Mediation makes use of visualization very often. Most of the meditation exercises that people are familiar with are all-inclusive of visualization. Before concentrating on complicated meditation exercises, you must first master this art.

Some people may imagine that visualization is easily mastered, that may be true. However, other people struggle with it. Visualization will be more potent if you keep practicing, and you must always be prepared and concentrate on letting all your imagination go.

Do this Exercise to master Visualization

If you want to master visualization, you can do this easy exercise. Pick a particular object in your home, clear your table, and leave nothing but the thing. Have a look at your chosen object and try to absorb all the details. You can try looking hard at the size, color, shape, and shade. Then, memorize all the details if possible.

The next step is to close your eyes and try to picture your chosen object inside your mind. Ask yourself if you remember all the details or forgot a few of them. While doing this, think about your feelings and about the exercise. Ask yourself again if you feel uncomfortable about the exercise or if it interests you.

Now, clear the object inside your mind—picture one other object inside your home. Observe and pay attention to the details. After, open your eyes and search for that particular object. Was the object identic to that pictured inside your mind? Did you miss out on specific details? If that is the case, which ones? Once again, you have to ask yourself what you feel while doing the exercise.

Now, it’s essential to return to the table and keep the past object in mind. Pay close attention to all the details. After this, try to put the object in its correct surroundings.

As you go about the exercise, you may notice that there are specific gaps in your imagination. So, can you now tell which of the object parts are real and which ones are not? Or which part came from your memory?

You were also asked to consider your feelings. When you are a newbie, visualization is stressful but don’t worry, this is normal. Soon, the stressful emotions will disappear, and you can do visualization exercises with ease. So don’t stop now just because you are having difficulties. Just keep on with your practice.

Learn visualization and meditation for your serenity.
