Swirling Movements: A doorway to deeper imagination

I think I have found a pattern of imagery that is a doorway to deeper imagination. This pattern naturally comes up when I’m falling asleep. It’s not always there but when it is, I know if I pay gentle attention to it, soon it will disappear and much more complex and magical content reveals itself.

In this short video, I show the pattern and cover how to work with it when it comes up for you.

The Queen’s Gambit: Our journey to the imagination

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.

Guidebook: Build A Comfortable Place Imagery Set [Visualize:Guidebook][Imagine:Guidebook]

This guidebook is the transcript of the Armchair Dreamer video on how-to-build A Comfortable Place visualization. But it includes more. I changed the text a bit by expanding it and I have included a chart or two. If you have time, see both.

If you want the basics, head over to the video at YouTube. If you want a bit more explanation and a checklist of the steps, download the pdf above.

Imagery Techniques

Build Your Imagery Library

Cultivating your own set of go-to imagery gives you a clear place to start your visualization-imagination work. Whenever and wherever you are, you can go to your bookcase and pull off the imagery you want for the moment. Practicing each of your library holdings and keeping them fresh and powerful.

How to Start Your Library

I will give you some starter imagery in a series of upcoming posts. You will get a mix of imagery that:

  • promotes rest and relaxation;
  • activates your curiosity and creativity; or other in-built skills
  • helps you in uncomfortable situations (hassles), emergencies, and during the challenges of living life.

I will give you the basic framework of what you want to do in each imagery set. You will need to fill in that structure with your own memories, experiences, poetic ideas, favorite images, and more. You will not be getting some highly canned guided imagery. Instead, you will customize everything and that process will make the imagery that much more powerful.

Start off slowly and work with one imagery structure.

You will need several sessions to collect and fully round out what you want to appear in your imagery.

After that you will need several more sessions to get comfortable with what you have.

This needs to be followed by more sessions so you can develop deep mastery of what you have developed so it will appear easily and rapidly.

Lastly, you will need to set up a system where you will remember you have these imagery in your library. The most common problem with any inner work techniques is that we forget to use them! Make a list, make a drawing, make something for each set you develop that reminds you, on a regular basis, that you have your imagery library. Better yet, practice each one at least once a week to keep it in your short-term memory.
