Creative Growth – “Seeing With the Mind’s Eye” by Michael and Nancy Samuels

I am working my way through Seeing With the Mind’s Eye again, something I haven’t done since my first year of grad school.  While it’s dated (from a much freer time, actually, when it was almost socially acceptable to experiment with hallucinogenics and sex in certain circles – but our return to Puritanism is a whole other topic), the exercises and explanations are extremely helpful for opening yourself up.

For the past week, I’ve been practicing changing the color of a 3D sphere in my mind, coupled with deep breathing.  Last night, after doing a combination of relaxation techniques from this book and the Cayce method (which I learned last year from this site), I was able to “travel” for the first time during a meditation in almost eight years.  It was a memory journey, bringing me to the coast of Oregon.  Wonderfully vivid and relaxing.

I highly recommend this book for those searching to delve deeper into their creative selves and tap the inner workings of their mind.  Especially when you can get used copies really inexpensively.
