First, it is important to be able to visualize things so clearly in your mind, that it is is almost as real as in the physical world. Well developed visualization can help yield better results, in regards to attracting certain people and situations in your life, for example. Start out simply, and then progress on to harder challenges. Try picturing in your mind’s eye, a small ball in one color, or a specific shape. Hold the image in your mind for 30 seconds, or as long as you can. The most important thing is not to lose the image, not to be distracted by outside noises, thoughts, or think of another image. It is a tough challenge, but with enough practice and patience, it can be achieved!

Another task to develop your mind, is to meditate. Try to meditate daily anywhere from 20 minutes up to a couple of hours a day. Meditation, like visualization help to rid the mind of clutter,and negative outside influences. Start out by focusing on a simple mantra, or on the movements of your breath. It is critical that you do not let your mind wander, and stay focused on the task at hand.

You can also play psychic games with yourself. Try to guess what someone else is thinking, predict things before it happens, or try to influence others with your thoughts. You might surprise yourself, that certain psychic phenomenon may develop, in accordance with the strength of your will, and how often you successfully practice visualization and meditation.

Working successful magic, practicing paganism, and other esoteric practices rest on one foundation, the power of the mind. It is important to develop your mind to be focused, aware of what is within and about you, and strong. Practicing visualization and meditating regularly will help sharpen your mind, and sharpen your abilities.
