On the​ other hand,​ there are also individuals who struggle with it. ​
Visualization grows stronger only if ​ you​ keep on​ practicing; and​ you​ must always be prepared and​ concentrated to​ let all your imaginations go.
If you​ want to​ master visualization,​ you​ can try this simple exercise. ​
Pick a​ certain object in​ your home and​ clear your table and​ leave nothing but the​ object. ​
Look at ​ your chosen object and​ try to​ absorb all the​ specific details. ​
You can try looking hard on​ the​ size,​ color,​ shape,​ and​ the​ lights shade on​ it. ​
Then,​ memorize all details if ​ possible. ​

The next step is​ to​ shut your eyes and​ try to​ picture your chosen object inside your mind. ​
Ask yourself if ​ you​ remembered all the​ details,​ or​ if ​ you​ forgot some of​ them. ​
While doing this,​ think about your feelings about the​ exercise. ​
Again,​ ask yourself if ​ you​ feel stressed about the​ exercise or​ if ​ youre interested. ​

Now,​ clear the​ object inside your mind. ​
Picture another object found inside your home. ​
Observe and​ pay close attention to​ the​ details. ​
After that,​ open up your eyes and​ search the​ house for that particular object. ​
Was the​ object the​ same to​ that pictured inside your mind? Did you​ miss out certain details,​ if ​ so,​ which one/s? you​ have to​ once again ask yourself what youre feeling while doing the​ exercise.
Now,​ you​ have to​ go back to​ the​ table and​ remember a​ certain object from your past. ​
Pay close attention to​ all the​ details. ​
After doing so,​ try to​ put the​ object in​ its proper surroundings. ​

As you​ go about the​ exercise,​ you​ might have noticed that there are certain gaps filled in​ by your imagination. ​
So,​ can you​ now tell which of​ the​ objects part are real and​ which ones are not? or​ which part came from just your memory?
You were also asked to​ think about your feelings. ​
if ​ youre a​ beginner,​ visualization is​ quite stressful but don’t worry because this is​ but normal. ​
Soon enough,​ the​ stressful feelings will disappear and​ you​ can do visualization exercises with more ease than before. ​
So don’t stop now just because youre having difficulties,​ just keep on​ practicing. ​
