One of the blocks to getting into visualization work is not knowing where to start. After closing our eyes, what do we do next?
You’ll always know what to do next if you pick a favorite image, an object, or a location you know well and always start there. Every session, start with your custom image. No-fuss, no delay in getting started, no wondering about what to do next. Watch this short but complete video on the specifics of starting with target images.
Anyone interested in imagination and visualization training will find The Queen’s Gambit, a short tv-series now on Netflix, an important watch. In episode one we see the main character, Beth, travel the hero’s journey. This is the journey we must follow to get into our unconscious, not just once, but every time we practice imagination and visualization work.
The Queen’s Gambit starts off with the main character, Beth Harmon, being sent to an orphanage after the sudden death of her mother. We see Beth struggling to understand her new life. One day, much like any other day for Beth, she is sent on an errand that will change her life by unlocking her great skill at a game she has never even seen before.
