Effective Visualization - Lesson 6
See Yourself As You Wish to BE
Using All of Your Senses!
When you visualize, it is important that use all of your senses, as well as your visional sense.
See it and feel it.
The inner visional sense is the leader of all of the other inner
But when you visualize, you must appeal to all of your senses.
Appeal to the sense of sight, the sense of touch, the sense of taste, the sense of hearing, the sense of smell, because the five senses all have their inner counterparts.
The five senses are both esoteric(inner) and exoteric(outer); they are both inner and outer.
When we’ve often talked of the five senses, for the most part we have thought of them only as exoteric; sight through the eyes, or the outer touch, or the physical taste, or the physical hearing, or the physical smelling.
But from this moment on you must learn to appreciate the inner counterparts of the five senses and to use them.
By inner, I mean you must experience the
senses in your imagination!
And I repeat, the visional (seeing) sense is the leader of all of the other esoteric senses.
Now I’m dealing with a couple of words. First of all let’s start with “exoteric,” since most people are out there, meaning “outer;external.” And then “esoteric” meaning “inner; internal.”
So when you visualize, see what you want and use all of your internal senses to experience that thing.
You’re going to have fun now aren’t you!
You are constantly using your exoteric (outer) senses. Now, you must become just as expert as using your esoteric or your inner spiritual senses. Let’s stay in the commentary for a moment, and let’s do a run down of these senses.
Let’s take up now the sense of sight.
When you are visualizing something, see what you
visualize and connect yourself with it.
Don’t just see money. Yes, see money, but be careful to see
yourself with that money. Don’t be like my custodian who saw the beautiful new Rolls Royce I had and exclaimed, “Oh, Rev. Ike, I just saw that in my visualization last week.”
See yourself with it, with whatever it is you desire.
Say it with me now, say it out loud with feeling:
“I see myself with it; I see myself being it; I see myself doing it; I see myself having it in the nowness of consciousness. In the theater of my mind upon the stage of my imagination I see it.”
Apply this technique to whatever it is you want to be, to do, and to have. You have to be definite and positive.
Again, I’ll quote Rev. Ike:
"You have to be definite with the infinite."
That’s why these prayers about, “Lord you know what I need, now give me what I need,” that kind of prayer is no good.
And yes, that is correct, the Bible says the Father knows what you need even before you ask him. But the Father makes a big point out of telling you, “ask and it shall be given.”
People are going around just praying these unspecific prayers and wonder “Why the Lord doesn't answer my prayers. Lord, help me,” and then they mess it up by adding, “if you will; if it’s according to your will, help me.”
You are not being specific, because again, the infinite God tells the individual, “Command you me.”
Oh my goodness, the power you have!
You have the power of commanding God!
Visualization is really the strongest way of commanding the infinite. Visualization gives us a definite command to the infinite. It gives a specific command, a detailed command to the infinite.
When you are visualizing something, see what you
visualize. When you do this you are appealing to the sense of sight.
If you are visualizing yourself somewhere, you can appeal to your sense of sight by seeing yourself where you want to be, doing what you want to do, and having what you want to have.
If you want to be in London, as I’ve taught you long ago, go to the travel agent, or wherever it is you want to be, and get
brochures. We’ve had people who did this, people who’d never been here before, and they were just mystified because it worked!. They would write me from the most exotic places and hotels.
One lady said, “Rev. Ike I am sitting out here on the balcony of the Grand Hotel.” She said, I had no idea that we would be here, but I came to your church for the first time and you led a visualization prayer treatment, and we visualized being here, and here we are.
Jesus, in St. John, represents the power of your imagination, where he says,
“I go and prepare a place for you; and if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself, that where I am there you may be also.”
The Christians are still looking for Jesus. They say the Jews
missed him the first time and the Christians missed him the
I’ll tell you that Jesus is something else; he’s alright, but he’s so much more than the average Christian has any idea.
And you have to know, and you have to understand what Jesus represents when Jesus speaks. Interpreting this symbolically:
"If you want to go somewhere,
send your imagination there"
If you want to be something, go to that place in your
imagination where you are already that which you want to be.
There is that place in you, the secret place of the most high,
where you can go and shut the door, and you can already be what you want to be in that place.
You can already do what you want to do in that place.
You can already have what you want to have in that place.
This is why you have to spend time with meditation in quietness, systematically on a daily basis. And you stay in that “room with the Lord” until the Lord, the law of mind, makes you and molds you in the image of your vision of yourself.
If you can SEE it, you can BE it!
Send your imagination often to look upon your ideal self, to look upon your divine self, to look upon your perfect self, to look upon your whole self, your healthy self, your God self, your good self. Move in the room with the Lord often. Look up from the place where you are, shut out the senses, the external senses that say that you’re poor, that say you don’t have what you want, that say you’re not what you wish to be, and go to that place where you are where you wish to be.
And you keep sending your imagination there, and it will prepare that place for you, and it will come and lead you over a bridged incident to the expression of that vision; that, as Jesus said, "where I am you may be also". Use your inner sight, your inner visional faculty.
