This is the most basic and yet advanced technique called for in magic and Wicca . The art of using our brains to “see” what is not physically present is a powerful magical tool used in many Wiccan rituals. Nearly all of us possess this ability. It may not be fine tuned, but practice makes perfect. Can you picture your house in your mind or your mother’s face. That’s visualization. Visualization is the act of seeing with the mind, not the eyes? [Book: Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner]
Nearly all magic spells contain a step known as visualization (also known as "positive thinking," "positive imagery," "dynamic imaging," "creating imaging," "imaging"). This is the use of mental imagery in order to utilize your own energy and power to obtain a desired objective.
There are two types of visualization:
- Normal Visualization
- Creative Visualization
Visualization that we do in normal life is normal visualization. e.g. visualizing your wedding day, how to present a speech, how to talk to a client etc.
Creative Visualization, this technique of guided imagery or guided visualization occurs when someone is leading a person or group through steps of visualization with suggestions or directions on what the person(s) should be visualizing. In simple words your spiritual healer is telling you to make a picture in your mind and is guiding you what pictures to make and what to do with those pictures (almost like a TV screen in your mind).
Creative visualization, hereafter abbreviated as C.V., is based on the occultic principle that what exists in thought can be manifested in reality. This is actually a form of sorcery. As said by ritual magician Donald Tyson, "The underlying premise of a magical ritual is that if you represent a circumstance, or act out an event in your mind, it will come to pass in the world."
This belief is found in the New Age idea of creating your own reality, as well as in witchcraft and occultic magic.This technique is as old as the occult, and is the basis of positive thinking techniques, which differ from a positive outlook.
Magical visualization is seeing something that is presently nonexistent. It may be a magic circle or simply healing yourself. In magic the client is told to visualize a desire e.g. visualize that a client is getting healed or visualize that you are setting a spirit on fire. The aim of this is to direct energy to empower this visualization-to bring it into manifestation.
This is magic! Again, this is not Islam. Healers have mixed portions of Sunnah and portion of magic rituals to fool the society. Muslims please wake up, look around before it is too late.
Instead of creating a physical image, the client creates pictures in his head. According to wiccans harnessing the awesome power of the imagination is key to working magic.
In this article (← click) Christians are being warned not to adopt such techniques.Unfortunately Muslims have gone far astray and have easily fallen into the trap of these occult/magic techniques due to our own ignorance and our blind love for our scholars/teachers who are just humans and can make mistakes in judging these techniques.
“The Day that their faces will be turned upside down in the Fire, they will say: Woe to us! Would that we had obeyed Allah and obeyed the Messenger. And they would say: "Our Lord! We obeyed our chiefs and our great ones, and they misled us as to the (right) Path. Our Lord! Give them double Penalty and curse them with a very great Curse!" [33:66-68]
