How We Know For Sure We Can Vividly Imagine

April 22, 2010

Rene Descartes – a famous philosopher once said “(1) I think therefore (2) I am”. He was referring to what he knew was true. Fortunately or unfortunately he could not prove any further than that. It was quite a challenge.

I’ve been faced with my own dilemma. How can I Vividly Imagine (visualise) something?I’m auditory by nature and pictures seemingly don’t come easy in my mind. Even after weeks and months of practice.

Then the answer came to me in a flash of blinding ecstasy. I’m already visualising! Quite well too. I just needed to be reminded.  Erotic fantasy. It’s a rather delicate subject but one worth raising. It’s worth raising because almost all of us have had a fantasy at some stage in our lives.Remember back to the last fantasy you may have had. How vivid was it? Did you achieve the outcome you planned by using this visualisation?

What does this tell us? We’re capable of visualising if we know we’ve already done it. So, next time you’re asked to visualise, and you don’t think you can, think of a time you have.
