Learning how to visualize goes mutually together with learning to focus, building self-discipline, and meditation, developing and controlling an active mind, astral projection and dream working – which are all important aspects to the development of magickal ability. Visualization is the foundation of a form or image within the mind and the holding of this pattern or picture while projecting it as a visual knowledge.By learning to visualize, you will find that your rituals are more enhanced, focused and consequently more successful. For instance, in a healing ritual you can create more energy by visualizing the unhealthy area as healthy and vital by directing energy usually to the area. This holds true for all types of rituals. Visualization of the goal achieved, combining with the path of the magickal energy, will channel more energy.
