Default  [Visualization] Teryakywind's Guide to Making the Imagined Real
So I've seen a lot of people complaining that when they enter into their wonderland things don't look or feel clear. I have decided to share what I do when visualizing things in my wonderland, when I'm not being fantastically lazy.

This method involves cycling through all 5 of your senses while in wonderland, one at a time, slowly building up until you have all 5 going at once.

Before you start, make sure that you are in a comfortable position, be it sitting or laying down. don't worry about falling asleep, as dozing a little can be helpful here.

Close your eyes, and imagine yourself to be in your wonderland body. Your eyes, both in the physical world and in your wonderland, should be closed, so at first you will not see anything. Be patient with me, I'm getting to that point. Just keep your wonderland eyes closed until the end.

For the sake of example, let's pretend you're sitting in a field next to a burbling stream and a forest. Overhead, the sky is clear, and the sun has reached its highest point before it once more begins its journey towards the horizon.

First, reach down and feel the dirt underneath you. Pick up a handfull, and feel how it crumbles between your fingers. Feel the temperature, be it hot or cold. Keep the dirt in one hand, and reach out with the other, and feel the tall, dry blades of grass that surround you. Feel the sun over your head. Feel its heat reflecting off of the ground and the grass around you. Feel the breeze as it ruffles your hair and brushes your skin.

Now, hear the breeze as it rustles the leaves on the tress and the grass around you. There are birds chriping, singing sweetly among the trees of the forest. There is a cricket somewhere in the field. Turn your head (remember, keep your eyes shut!) and try to figure out which direction the cricket is in relation to you. is it behind you? Off to the side? In front of you?

Next, take the handfull of dirt, lift it to your face, and smell it. Smell the crumbled moutnains, the richness that gives the grass and plants around you life. Smell the breeze, wafting past and bringing you the smell of pine trees from the forest.

Reach out, keeping your eyes closed, and pick off a blade of the rich grass. Put the end of it in your mouth, and taste the sharpness of the sap that carries nutrients to the plant. Take a little bit of the dirt in your hand, toucch it to the tip of your tongue. Taste its grittiness, taste the nutrients.

NOW, tilt your head down in wonderland so that you are looking at your lap, and open your eyes. Look at the spot you are sitting. Notice the texture of the grass that is flattened where you are sitting, the soil it grows from. Look up a little further, and see the long blades of grass swaying slightly with the breeze. Look up a little further, and see the trees in the distance as they too sway with the wind. Look up a little further, up to the sky. Notice the sun shining brightly in the sky above, the clouds floating gently along on their eternal journey across the face of the Earth.

As you go through this, keep the senses you went through before each step as you move on to the next one. Feel, then hear and feel, then feel and hear and smell, and so on.

Apply this to your own wonderland, adapting it to your wonderland's environment.

As you get better and better at visualizing in wonderland this routine will take less and less time until eventually you will be able to run through everything in a matter of moments.

Good luck, and happy tulpaforcing!

Pretty similar to my imposition method. Involving as many senses as possible always seems to help; I definitely approve.

The above post does not contain facts.

First or third person? Although it might not even matter.

First person. You can't really keep your wonderland eyes shut in third person.

Somebody should convert this to an audio guide to make this possible to follow.

Eh, it's not so hard to memorize, and you really should adapt it to your own wonderland.

My audio editing skills and rsources are limited for the time being. it's a good idea though! Maybe add some peaceful music in the background, pauses in between steps...

Sounds very much like the one with the sandy beach, and the lemon one that Phi wrote. (All time favourite)

Your eye turns red in pain, and you drop the lemon on your foot. This causes you to lose your balance, and you hit your head on the nearby counter, and lose consciousness. The lemon miraculously falls on your nose, and you begin to inhale the juices. The juices drip into your lungs, and the acidity slowly corrodes your insides until you finally die.









You were probably imaging all that as you were reading it. That's your mind's eye.

I think it was intended as a joke, but it might help anyway.
