In order to see what you want to get through your visualization you need to think about the thing that you want to see. Creativity is the most important tool for this purpose. Either you can let your past memories lead your imagination or create an entire new scenario using your creativity, it all depends upon what you want to visualize. Let your mind synthesis the information required to get the desired result. You can do that by closing your eyes and letting yourself relax so that you can use your imagination effectively. You can improve your creativity by letting your mind wander upon those things that you haven’t thought of before. This would help you realize those things that were left unnoticed at first.
Use your imagination to create a picture out in the real world. Whatever you would be imagining would be a creation of your own mind that lasts only in your imagination. However, you can use some of that imagination and implement in real life. For example, if you were wondering about listening to your particular favourite song while driving on the highway thinking about random things, it could be done in reality. The moment when you undergo that experience you’ll have a feeling of DeJa Vu, as if everything that you once experienced is coming to life once more.
Visualization only tends to work when you are calm and relaxed. If you’re being hyper or tensed, that you would not be able to image as you wanted to. Make sure that your mind is free of external thoughts.
Focusing is an important part of visualization. You cannot have a proper image of the things you want to see if you’re not focusing properly. Music or any other irrelevant sound nearby would cause you to disturb, affecting your visualization. It’s important that you sit in a calm and peaceful place, without any foreign disturbance, so that you can focus on what you’re trying to visualize. Moreover, add all senses to your experience. Try to hear, feel and smell the visualization that you would be trying to create by focusing all your sense upon it.
Details always tend to create the element of reality in something. The more detailed it is, the more real it looks. Try to focus on all the other details apart from the main subject in order to create a more realistic feel of that.
