LaWanda is blind, and wants to learn magick:
I am blind and am trying to learn how to direct my magic and really all of my psychic power. I get so irritated when people tell me to visualize–that just isn’t doable for me! Is there an alternative way to do this?
I’ve never thought about this before. Most sighted people probably haven’t — that’s why we keep saying “visualize,” even when it’s obviously the wrong answer. So in this post, I’m going to explore the question.
First, the point of visualization is to communicate your intent to your unconscious mental muscles. (Those are the parts of your mind that actually make the magick happen.) Really, anything that communicates your intent ought to work.
Let me ask you this: If you’re planning out what you’ll do today, how do you think about it? If you try to imagine the act of doing something, like making a sandwich, what goes through your mind as you imagine that experience — what your hands would feel, how they would move, or something else?
Here’s what I’m thinking: Whatever you normally do to imagine doing something, that should be our starting point for how to signal your intent to your unconscious mental muscles. We’ll probably need to adapt it, but I can help you with that.
Anyone else got an idea? Please leave a comment.
Also, let me ask: Is there anything I could do to make this site easier for blind or otherwise disabled users? Thanks!If you liked this post, consider visiting my current blog at mikesententia.com.
