    Welcome to Genius Sparks by Paul R. Scheele

    Visualization is a powerful tool for self-improvement.
    Sharp visualization abilities can greatly improve the
    results you get from many of our programs including
    PhotoReading, Spring Forest Qigong, Abundance for Life,
    and Effortless Success.

    For years it was cited as a scientific fact that one American
    in three was unable to visualize. Even Genius Code author
    Win Wenger was one of those who absolutely could not until
    he used the following methods to get pictures in his mind for
    himself. Since then, out of thousands he has taught, every
    person has succeeded and thus enjoyed the benefits of visual
    thinking or visualization.

    Try the following exercises. If you do not have a partner to be
    the listener, use a recording device.

    1. Afterimage Technique

    “Afterimages” are leftover prints of light on the retina at the
    back of the eye. For 30 seconds, stare at a light, window, or
    part of the room that has a strong contrast. Do not use the sun
    or anything else very bright-20 to 40 watts of light is more
    than bright enough. When you look away from the light or
    close your eyes, you will see momentary afterimages. You may
    see a floating blob of light or color or perhaps a line. Describe
    what you see in detail and continue describing as it changes
    color and shape.

    Unreinforced afterimages last only a few seconds. Reinforced
    by attention and description, your afterimage can last minutes.
    If yours fades after a few moments, recharge on the light and
    resume describing.

    At some point while examining and describing your
    afterimages, you may notice other kinds of images, such as
    trace impressions or a momentary eye, face, landscape, vase,
    etc. Notice when you get one and switch to describing it.
    Describe in the present tense, as if you still see it, even if you
    caught only a momentary glimpse. With your attentive detailed
    sustained flow of description, more images will come.

    If 10 to 20 minutes sustained effort with afterimages does not
    lead you to more interesting perceptions, smile, breath, and
    try this next technique.

    2. Phosphenes

    “Phosphenes” are luminous impressions that result from
    changing pressure on the retina. Gently rub your own closed
    eyes like a sleepy child and describe the light and color
    variations you see. Continue describing what develops.

    3. Music

    Close your eyes and listen to richly textured music, preferably
    classical, French impressionist, or progressive jazz. Choose
    complex music that attracts and involves your more sensitive
    faculties. When the music inspires an image or sensation, delve
    deep into description. If you have seen Walt Disney’s film
    Fantasia, you may remember the intense connection between
    the classical music score and the animated action and dance
    that sprang from it.

    4. Home Blindfolded

    Make your way around your apartment or house blindfolded,
    feeling various objects and describing them at length. For an
    alternative experience, have your partner create a grab bag of
    many highly diverse objects for you to feel. Regardless of
    whether you successfully identify the item, describe it fully.

    This exercise is also a creative problem-solving technique. If
    you have been working to solve a problem and have not yet
    gotten you’re a-ha!, you can turn to perception by asking
    yourself, “How would I experience this if I could not see? How
    would I “see” it differently from how I am seeing it now?” Or if
    I could not hear? Or if I were very short or very tall? Do
    anything to change the way you are approaching the problem
    to shift you from your stuck “knowledge”.

    5. Eat Blindfolded

    Describe in detail what you are eating. Include taste, smell,
    sound, texture, and appearance.

    6. Afterimage Room

    Stand in a dark room looking toward where the light will be,
    turn on the lights, and immediately close your eyes. You should
    find elaborate afterimages or even an entire scene. Vary the
    exercise by quickly flicking the lights on and off several times
    with eyes open and leaving them on or off after you close your
    eyes. Compare afterimages with lights left on or off. Describe
    everything in your awareness.

    These techniques and more can be found in the
    Genius Code course.
