According to shamanism, the key to a successful visualization is to add another dimension to it through integrating nature and using all of the senses. The spirit of all of nature to them is the true source of power. Natural beings and nature itself is 3 – dimensional which is why shamans re – create their visions in a 3 – dimensional way by incorporation the senses of sound, sight, smell, touch, and even taste.

As an example, say you’re to re – create or imagine an apple, what you need to do to “see it” in your mind is to imagine feeling the apple in your hands, imagine how it smells, and hear the crunch as you bite and taste it.

Another important thing to keep in mind is to use your natural surroundings to further enhance your visualization. Say for example, you’re imaging yourself relaxing on a beach in a soft surface; you may want to sit on or lie down on something that’s really soft or cushiony because it will aid your ability to really picture whatever’s in your mind. According to shamans, natural objects like grass, climate or soil have more power than synthetic materials so try to incorporate it when you’re doing visualization.
