Vision Boards For The Blind; Seeing Pictures Differently: Subjectively: One Blind Guy’s Effective Sensory Projections.

Around the beginning of June 2017; I had purchased, “Silva Ultramind’s Remote Viewing And Remote Influencing,” which was put out in 2003 by Dennis Higgins and John La Tourrette, Ph.D. Having already been working with the Silva Method on and off for well over a decade I found this 10 CD audio production to be quite helpful in expanding upon what I already knew. In fact; it was while working through this variation of what some would call the, “Silva Ultramind ESP System,” that I realized, even as a blind person, there was a way for me to create a vision board of sorts; thus, enhancing my visualizations/meditations.

The Silva System, along with many other meditation methods out there, have always put a heavy emphasis on forming clear mental pictures in one’s mind. Many in the Self-Help arena ferociously support this viewpoint, particularly when it comes to Goal Setting and Goal Achievement.

However, while many blind people find being told that they must “visualize” to be a bit irksome for some strange reason; I personally don’t give up that easily. I had long felt that there was a way around this mental picture business and discovered it at last.

It involves using the tools at our disposal.

  • The internet.
  • Audacity or other audio editing software.
  • A simple digital recorder.
  • A brain that’s creative and smart enough to use this stuff.

“True!” As a blind person; I can’t really “see” the goals I want. However, I know what they should sound like. I know what they should feel like, smell like, taste like and how I will feel when I finally get what I’m after.

Therefore, to keep my focus on goals, I can use sound files to keep my attention where it ought to be; just as a sighted person might review their Vision board just before, or perhaps even during, their meditation sessions. Between the internet and our ability to digitally record some of our own life experiences for later reference, our version of a Vision Board would take the form of a directory on our computer hard drive; loaded with those sound bites which represent that which we wish to achieve.

There are any number of ways a blind person could incorporate audio files into meditation and goal setting plans in general. “And,” while mp3 and other types of audio files may not bring the other sensations of goal achievement through the door for us… Well… How many times have you had your imagination and other emotions triggered just by listening to a song on the radio, “Even if you are a sighted person reading this?”

if you are a blind person who’s ready to give this a go; the key thing to remember here is that you will want to be sure to pick the sounds that best represent the goals you wish to achieve, as if they’re already attained. You might have to sit down and really think hard about what your achievement will sound like. Once you know what you should be hearing; you shouldn’t have any trouble at all finding the matching sound bites, especially with so many people posting nearly every aspect of life on line for the world to see.
