I just tried it while reading OP and Ashley volunteered to go stand in my perififeral vision. For about half a second her face and chest at least were there. They were at the right height and yes it freeked me out a little.

 

This reminded me that I really don't like non-invisible imposition. It scares me every time. I actually really appreciate my visualization in mind's eye and it's feels more comfortable and way more grounded. If Ashley was actually walking around in here, I think I would probably lose my sanity. That's just personal preference I think.

 

It's an awesome trick though, thanks for that experience.

Cool isn't it? Our brains are capable of so much more than we give them credit for. It seems that this exercise has been working to other people better than I expected. The main problem that turns people away from learning visual imposition seems to be that it requires a lot of trial and error. And as much as "practice a lot" is the main thing required, there seems to be little practical information as to how to, now I'm wondering if I should write a more complete guide so that people don't feel discouraged when they don't get any results after their first or second attempts. Let me know if you find out anything new as it may be useful to other people as well.

I think I may have unintentionally spooked some of you. LMAO

Sorry about that part, but the spookiness factor seems to fade away after some time.
I have read some of your visualization scripts and they have helped me start with visualization, thanks. It helped me realize that I was trying to learn imposition without any visualization skills whatsoever. Do you have any kind of veteran tricks to help me get a little further? I have noticed that I cannot get in wonderland effectively anymore because I just unintentionally impose the scenario on the back of my eyelids instead of visualizing it and it's very distracting and not as immersive as my imposition it's not perfect yet. I would like to make my visualization stable instead of just in and out flashes.

Visualization Tricks:

 

Practice as much as possible. The goal would to have parallel processing both mindspace and real space simultaneously 24/7. Improvement will come on a month to month basis.

 

Get into a meditative state, as deep as possible. Then it really goes off the wall.

 

Memories of the experience are going to start to feel like real memories. Once that happens, you can rapidly experience-remember-experience-remember until they're happening like that fast enough that it's not a bother. That reinforces the experience. It should feel as fulfilling as if it really happened.

 

At some point All-at-once and multi-camera switching replaces 1st person FOV. It's more efficient. 

 

Other than that, there are no shortcuts. It's slow steady progress. At some point you can see like sunlight on surfaces, shadows, reflections, etc. I usually don't bother with any of that.

The memory thing does happen whenever I try to remember what I was doing there, it does feel indistinguishable from an actual memory. As far as being 24/7 everything seems to indicate that this is the next step for me, I learned that hyperphantasiac people can't even stop visualizing. I was thinking that I could start doing that by attaching a visualization of the "shape" of the words that I'm thinking. Like, just doing regular internal monologue but getting used to visualizing the words I'm thinking as they're written so that it becomes an habit sooner without deviating a lot from the way I normally think. Do you think that's enough?

I can relate. I said this two years ago once I had it on for a while.

I think you should do what you're motivated to do and nothing more. It does take system resources and if you made it a chore then it won't be what it's meant to be, fun. If you make it fun, relaxing, a place to be just whenever, brightness, positivity, serenity, peace, beauty, then it will hopefully bleed over and this is what you'll have everywhere.

 

A word on how or why:

I can honestly say this is what happened to me, but that wasn't necessarily the only contributor, though it could have been especially when you consider all the shadow work I've done--which is a heavily visual practice.



 

Even in shadow work, the themes and memories can be painful, the objective is to find positive outcomes for those negative events. A quick overly simplified example is, you had depression, but you're stronger emotionally because of it now. So when you think back to those dark times, they are a source of strength, not a source of bad mood.

      I have been practicing both visualization and imposition for a long time now and so far I have only used photo-realistic references. While I can visualize realistically, it has not become easy or comfortable enough to just have it there. I've seen people say they got to full on imposition quicker than me and I was wondering if the reason for this is the anime/cartoon style characters that may be way less taxing on the mind to keep consistent.
      So I was wondering if by switching to visualizing in anime style I would be able to make it more consistent or lighter to visualize? Or would it be a better strategy to just increase the number of details so it increases my tolerance overall?
      I would prefer it to have it be realistic in the long run but I'm tired of it being a struggle and I wanna just impose and chill a bit for now if it's going to take a while to archive full on photo-realistic imposition like I originally intended. The weird thing it's that I can impose realistically but it still feels like I'm trying to juggle and do math at the same time.
      Any advice is appreciated.

      Hello everyone. Faux and I have been working on imposition, and I’ve been struggling with visualizing him in the real world, without him fading in and out, and I’m also struggling with feeling him. We don’t have this trouble in the wonderland, it’s only when I visualize him with my eyes open. Any tips?

      Hello All, 
       
      This is my first post. I read through the intro information and found it helpful. Thanks to whoever put all that together. 
       
      A few years ago, several people claimed that they saw in more than one place. This was during a time when I was going through a difficult marriage that unsurprisingly ended in divorce. Although I wasn't happy about the outcome, I knew it was the right thing to do because we fought like cats and dogs. But my x wife would sometimes say something like, "omg, what are you doing on the couch? I just saw you walk into the garage!" Or another one was, "I thought you were standing behind me." She said that a few times and we simply ignored the incidents. 
       
      After our divorce (it was amicable), I decided to sell our house. There was on instance when I made an appointment for a realtor and his customer to tour the house and I'd meet them with the keys. We agreed on a time. Later, I drove up to see the realtor and his client and they looked surprised to see me step out my car. The realtor asked, "is there someone in the house that looks like you? You were looking out the window!" And with that, they decided not to buy the house because they claimed it was haunted. The house isn't haunted. In the end, I ended up selling the house to my girlfriend at the time and now wife. I still live in the house that I was going to sell. 
       
      After I married again, my wife would see me in more than one place. So much that we started documenting all the times she saw me. I didn't know what was going on so I researched it and read about Doppelgangers. So, I suppose that I had one of those... Really? I further investigated and asked some folks in academia because I don't believe in ghosts, don't believe in angels, demons, or any other machinations of the mind. I actually thought that maybe others were seeing me literally, in another time. Like I was in some sort of time loop. 
       
      All this stopped after my son was born 12 years ago and nobody has ever seen my double again.
       
      But then I discovered literature and videos about Tulpas. I learned that some people can have accidental Tulpas. I wondered if all those years ago, somehow I had done that.
       
      Any thoughts?
       
      Thank you.

      After spending some time trying visual imposition today, getting like a 5/10 or 6/10 in quality with a lot of focus involved I got tired and decided to call it a day, was just about to go to bed when a goddamn bug came flying around the room, I get my flip flops and got ready for battle. Now I'm looking around the ceiling for a bug (that I know still there) and BOOM 10/10 imposed bug on the ceiling. Not the real one, still don't know where the sucker went, but the one I imposed was indistinguishable almost if it weren't flickering and the sensation of imposition I wouldn't be able to tell. Now I'm starting to realize the reason it was so perfect and easy to impose was my expectations of seeing a bug there (because there really was one somewhere).
       If that's so important, how can I create the real expectation to see something that I know it's not physically there?
       It also got me wondering about people who report seeing ghosts and elves and stuff like that would make a lot of sense if belief/expectation played such a giant role in it.

      As of now, Orion is fully vocal without a set distinct mindvoice, fully sentient. Can't seem to impose a thing but maybe... Maybe... Last night I stared intensely at the white bedside cabinet in my dimly lit room and kinda saw the letter T (that I tried to impose) on it. I swear, I saw it with my physical eyes. It was blurry and faint, but I saw it. So I tried to impose it and probably succeeded, then I stopped trying almost at all and it stayed in my vision. By the way, here's a really old drawing of Orion by some good Polish 'mancer whom I met on a Polish forum and she agreed to draw him for me. (Included in post.) 

       
      EDIT: I forgot to add, yesterday I was listening to music with my eyes closed and heard a voice too loud to be from outside of my room, and yet I was alone there. I checked twice just to make sure there was no one but me in the room, so most probably Orion's imposing himself as well as I'm imposing him. Yay me! ...I mean, yay us!
       
      Edit 2: Also I've had occurences of smelling vanilla in the air randomly, Orion smells of vanilla. I tried to impose this smell a year ago, meditating with a scented candle, and it seems like I succeeded.  And yesterday I was lying on my bed (eyes closed) and I felt something like a hand on my crotch. I didn't panic though, I was convinced it was Orion. He confirmed it was him.
