Effective Visualization - Lesson 1

“How to Use your God-given Power of Visualization to BE, to DO, and to HAVE What you Want.”

This seven-part introductory series in Practical Mind Science has for its subject, “How to use your God-given power of visualization to be, to do, and to have what you want.”

We’re talking about visualization, so first of all let’s deal with definition. I’m going to talk about the definition in parts.

Visualization” is:

seeing and feeling yourself in your own mind already being, doing, and having the good that you desire.”

Visualization” is:

“deliberate, positive, creative dreaming (imagining) of things into expression or existence.”

Whenever I use the term “magic” I usually qualify it, and I’m going to use the term “magic” here. Visualization actually works like magic. It will skip you over a lot of difficulties in reaching your goal.

We’ve had people who have used it for the first time when they learned it here and got dramatic, seemingly miraculous results.

The first part of the definition of visualization talks about "having the good that you desire".

Notice the word "desire". Can you see that there is something that needs to happen before you even visualize.

What is it? What is the first thing you must do?

You have to decide what you desire. You have to decide
exactly what it is that you want.

Decide and Be Definite!

I can never emphasize too often or too much the importance of using your power of decision.

And I am always surprised at the people in life who have never really decided exactly what they want.

So decide exactly what you want to be;

decide exactly what you want to do;

decide exactly what you want to have...

...and then see and feel yourself in your own mind already being, doing, and having that good which you desire.

What Does the Bible Say About Visualization?

Perhaps some of us who are from a Bible background are already asking, “Well, Rev. Ike, what has this mind science business and this visualization business got to do with the Bible?”


There are may scriptures in the Bible that deal with visualization.  One of these visualization scriptures says,

“Where there is no vision the people perish”.

Let’s quote together again the scripture, “Where there is no vision the people perish.” What does that mean?

It simply means that if you cannot see yourself being what you want to be, you will perish without ever being it.

If you cannot see and feel yourself having what you want to have, you will perish without ever having it.

If you cannot see and feel yourself accomplishing the good that you desire to accomplish, you will perish without accomplishing it.

Where there is no vision the people perish. The word “visualization” could be substituted:

“Where there is no visualization the people perish.”

See Yourself As You Wish to Be!

“Visualization,” or “vision” in this particular verse of scripture, also indicates that if you cannot see yourself out of your poverty, you will die in poverty.

If you cannot see yourself well, you will perish in your sickness.

Therefore, see yourself healthy in your own mind.

See yourself happy in your own mind. Have a vision of yourself as a happy person.

See yourself loving and being loved in your own mind.

See yourself as a successful prosperous person in your own mind.

See yourself with plenty of money in your own mind. For if you do not see yourself with plenty of money you are likely to die without having any money.

“You mean, Rev. Ike, if I am broke, and it’s a fact that I don’t have any money, I am still to imagine I’ve got it?” Yes! That’s exactly what it means.

You must see yourself as you wish to be!
