i want to bee able to close my eyes and visualize a scene at will. is it possible to do this?

i want to bee able to close my eyes and visualize a scene at will. is it possible to do this? can i train myself to do it by force, like by meditating and trying to get it to happen naturally? i don't necessarily want to control the visuals so much as I would like to see something other than darkness when i close my eyes.

    You might be suffering from a disease called aphantasia. It’s essentially a psychological condition where you can’t visualise concepts. Like an apple turning on an axis. Sorry I can’t be of more help anon.

      i'm an artist and i don't really think i have problems visualizing at all. but my goal is to be able to close my eyes and see a scene as clearly (or almost as clearly) as i see things in real life with my eyes. i don't think what I'm trying to accomplish is something the average person can do.

        I'll try to help just because I used to be able to. I'm not good at teaching though so idk.

        >How to train yourself to visualize with your eyes closed.

        - Sit in the middle of a room with lots of stuff near the wall, better yet if they're rectangular like shelves or desks to help with the perspective.
        - Relax, keep your eyes open. Take in as much visual information as you can. Now slowly turn your head left/right, panning your view just like taking a panorama photo with your phone.
        - Turn your head to the other direction, repeat until you feel like the entire room (the visible half) is ingrained in your memory.
        - Close your eyes without stopping your head movement. Continue turning left and right with the same pace as before.
        - At this point you should be able to "see through your eyelids", that is, visualize with your eyes closed. If not, stop right here and restart. I don't know and I don't care how long it's gonna take, just do it.

        Now choose:
        >the path of increasing your spatial awareness (in the dark, I'm assuming you really mean you can't do *anything* with your eyes closed?)
        or
        >the rushed shortcut to visualization

          (part 2/n) The natural continuation:

          - With your eyes still closed, and visualization.exe still running, stop turning your head. Return it to it's normal position. (gotta be inclusive towards people with asymmetrical skull lel)
          - Now turn your entire body 180° degrees. (look backwards, not just your head, while still sitting) (steady eye height is key) (forgot to mention that you're supposed to do all the turning slowly, both the first one and this)
          - You'll probably fail to continue visualizing at this point, and that's normal. (or not? idk)
          - Repeat this entire thing from the start of (unmarked) part 1, but facing the other half of the room.
          - The goal up to this point is that you can visualize your entire room (with closed eyes) without moving an inch of your body. (Once you reach this goal your eyeball may instinctively follow your visualization, that's normal)

          U hav aphantasia m8, my condolences don cri

          (part 2/n) The natural continuation:

          - With your eyes still closed, and visualization.exe still running, stop turning your head. Return it to it's normal position. (gotta be inclusive towards people with asymmetrical skull lel)

          (part 3/n) The fake OBE of Body Experience (OBE) step. If you really don't have aphantasia this should be easy.

          - Move to your bed, or couch, or futon, whatever you can lie down and relax on.
          - Oh wait wrong order you're supposed to be walking around the room first. (that has the bed in it)
          - Take a look at everything, absorb every visual information as detailed as you can.
          - This time you also need to change your eye height. Walk around and crouch like a video game character, jump to look at higher places, crawl a little to look under things, etc.
          - Regularly stop and move *one* specific thing to a new place that's not too far away. Continue the room exploration, then stop and return the thing to its previous position. Repeat with the same item. (Ideally there is a door leading *into* the room that you can keep opening and closing while walking around. If there isn't, just anything will suffice)
          - Memorize the easiest route you can take from the bed to the movable item (and its destination, if you displaced it way too far)
          - Now go to the bed and lie down. Relax, and with your eyes open start visualizing.
          - All in first person view, imagine standing up, getting out of the bed, walking towards the target item, turning your head to look at things, then moving the target item, walking backwards a little bit, then walking forward to the item, returning it to the original state, then walking *backwards* to your bed.
          - Now close your eyes and visualize again, with your eyes closed for the entire time. Repeat all of part 3 until you succeed.

      What exactly do people mean? Like you can't see it forming behind your eyelids like it's in front of you or do yall mean I can't think of a scene in my head?

          When I heard your parents were going around telling people that they aborted the wrong child, I didn't think they were actually right. But today you proved me wrong.

    Yeah, it is possible.Visualizing a scene at will is a skill that can be developed and refined through practice and various techniques. By engaging your senses, maintaining focus, and regularly practicing visualization exercises, you can enhance your ability to create vivid mental images and even use them effectively in various aspects of life. That is to say you don't have to even think as much about visualizing over time.One interesting thing to note is that this type of visualization can change your behavior and how your concepts relate to each other. Creative Visualization" by Shakti Gawain offers practical exercises and techniques for harnessing the power of visualization. The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy explores how visualization can influence your thoughts and behaviors.

    Some interesting examples of highly complex visualizations include things like the Contemplation Sutra in Buddhism, where Pure Land Buddhists can slowly envision a very complex scene with multiple meanings built in and enter a state of meditation of Amida Buddha. The stations of the cross can involve complex mediations in Catholicism as well.

      Yeah just don't believe in the new age bullshit in that book by Shakti Gawain. "Visualization can be only used for good" is the most laughable shit I've ever heard. Serial killers visualize their future victims all the time.

    I used to assume that every one can visualize.
    I remember that I was listening to a video with my eyes shut, and I was visualizing the room around me so well, that I was wondering if I was seeing right through my eyelids.
    I opened my eyes just a little to check, and it was then that I saw, I was sitting in a chair in a different room than the one I thought I was in.
    I set up speakers in all the rooms that I want to, so I couldn't tell by the sound which room I was in.
    You need melatonin to visualize, so if you can't do it, your pineal gland might be calcified. That happens if you drink city water that has fluorite or fluorine, or other such chemicals added to it.
    Bottled water is better, but not the purified water, because the chemicals are still in it.
