    is simply the language of soul speaking with words Let it be open and easy whatever you want to say just in a form more spontaneous than prose It may seem unnecessary to do all four but it s usually the activity you resist which will have the most new information for you This doesn t need to be done all at once And of course you can do whatever part s of it you wish you re in charge of your spiritual path But the joys of relationship with the Goddess Within are so great I encourage you to give yourself and the Goddess the gift of coming to know Her to the best of your ability Experiencing The Goddess Within Here is a quick but effective way to contact the Goddess within you Take some time to ground yourself and come to a place of open relaxation Gently notice your hand Keep your gaze soft Become aware of the contours the hard bone and soft flesh that make up your physical hand Now imagine looking very closely and seeing the cells that make up the bone and flesh and everything else in your hand Tiny pulsing living sacks filled with watery fluid and protein molecules joined to each other with silky almost transparent connective tissue Now imagine looking even more closely and seeing the atoms that make up the cells Infinitesimal whirling flashes of energy that are only half there Electron pulses that flit instantly from place to place with no distance being traveled between sharing information with all the other electrons in your body and the universe instantaneously Imagine looking deep into the galaxy scale distances between these particles and seeing beyond them to the black void of empty perfection This is the quantum field that gives rise to those pulses of energy that give form to everything in existence including your atoms and cells and flesh and bone This is the field of pure Consciousness and it is the essence of the Great Goddess Breathe out into this field and notice your breath being inhaled by the Goddess Breathe in and know that you are breathing in the exhalations of the Goddess Maintain this connection through your breath for as long as you like When you are ready come back into ordinary consciousness keeping your awareness of the Great Goddess within you Where Lives The Womb Of Creation What you have just experienced is the Womb of all creation Whatever Consciousness calls forth from this Void comes into being in the world This is the essence of you This is not merely what you are made from it is what you are You are the Great Goddess She is within you now and evermore This visualization makes it clear on a visceral level that nothing can separate you from the Divine no more than a drop of the ocean can be imagined as not being water Allow this knowing to settle into all levels of your

    use all your senses to make it as real to yourself as possible Tactile Touch Feel the texture of whatever you are visualizing If you re visualizing wealth or success you may want to feel the buttery quality of the fine leather coat or couch you have and the feel of delicate crystal against your lips as you drink your freshly squeezed organic orange juice for breakfast Feel the weight of it the hardness or softness of it Is it cool or warm How does it sit in your hand Kinesthetic Movement Feel your body taking the actions If you are giving a successful book tour feel your feet on the floor and the muscles in your legs move you toward the podium for your reading Feel the book in your hand and the slightly rough quality of the paper as you turn the pages Notice your posture Is your forehead furrowed your eyes squinting your mouth pulled wide in a smile Feel your breathing and feel your voice vibrating in your chest as you speak Somatic Sensation Feel within your body the sensations associated with this reality In the above example you may feel the giddy butterflies of anticipation before you speak the satisfaction of seeing the audience enraptured by your story the goosebumps as a breeze wafts through the room And this is perhaps the most important piece of all Allow yourself to notice the feeling of success Let it suffuse your entire body Feel the feeling of accomplishment satisfaction pride joy freedom Revel in this sensation and enjoy it as long as you like The more power you give to this sensation the more potency your visualization will have to manifest in reality Hearing Listen to the sounds that surround you in this created reality the noises of your actions the voices of those who congratulate you the quiet splash of the kayak paddles and the call of a loon the sounds of success What sounds accompany the achievement of your desire What sounds are nearby What sounds are in the distance Scent What fragrances attend the scene of your creative visualization Smell the roses or apples that sit on the table the odour of fresh ink under your pen as you write the fresh grass scent coming in through the window the new car smell Taste It may seem trickier to imagine what tastes are there but you do taste things all the time Taste the air is it sweet or salty or acrid with car exhaust What flavours would you be likely to experience in this new reality Ripe tart sun sweet strawberries fresh out of your garden The finest dish in your favourite restaurant Imagine the texture of these foods as well Vision This is usually the easiest to think of though not the most powerful sense for creative visualization If you were visualizing a new home see yourself in your mind s eye holding the key in your hand putting it in the

  • What Is Visualization? * Wicca-Spirituality.com
    if we don t do those things we must not be very imaginative In fact imagination is actually how you do many ordinary things Did you know that it is your imagination that let s you remember things let s you anticipate happy things in the future gives you the ability to worry inspires solutions to problems that arise gives you ideas like a new spice to add to an old recipe or how to do something more efficiently allows you to tell other people about things that have happened to you and makes you see things visually Your eyes don t actually picture anything it is your mind s imagination that puts together electrical impulses to create an image of what you re looking at But I Can t Visualize Can I Wanna Bet As I said everyone can do this And everyone includes you The funny thing about it is that everyone does it all the time Some people are just better at noticing it Even with visuals I d bet you 10 you can call up pictures on the screen of your mind at least sometimes Want to try it Close your eyes Take a deep relaxing breath Think of where you keep your keys Think of the person you love most Think about what s in your refrigerator Aha Caught you That my friend is visualizing Not so mysterious or impossible after all is it And with a little practice you can learn greatly increase your skill Here s how to visualize for those who think they can t Your potential is infinite What Visualization Looks Like We all envision things unconsciously that is when we aren t trying You just don t normally notice these mental pictures because they go by so quickly And because you don t stress about how perfect or imperfect it is This is information that is critical to your success but often overlooked When you call it visualize it s easy to expect too much But images in your head just aren t going to be as clear as looking at something with your eyes Not for the vast majority of people That s okay That s normal They might look like a fleeting image a snapshot a full colour motion picture But it s still visualizing And if vision isn t your primary sensory mode it s likely to start out at the first and grow towards the last That is your visualizations may be weak in the visual sense at first because they re stronger in other senses like feelings or sounds So you can do it you always have been able to Even though you don t realize you re doing it With practice you can successfully envision whatever and whenever you choose If I could learn to do it I know you can See this article to learn more With Bright Blessings Next Article So You Think You Cannot Visualize If you liked this article please
