When we were small children our senses were inundated with novelty. Throughout the process of growing up we get familiar with sights, sounds, and smells, etc., we experience generation loss. The flavour of an orange becomes ordinary to the brain. ‘Crazy ideas’ is a way of restoring all-new ideas which can stimulate the brain and body in a similar way after a child. I have provided a crazy idea (see the film) of a rotating silver skull wearing the feathered hat together with tarot cards. If you are able to sit silently with your eyes closed and generate the picture of the scull behind the closed eyes, and remain with the picture for a few minutes, soon after you will get the infusion of childish energy. See whether you can come up with some crazy ideas. For example, a tiptoeing mermaid on a dance floor. Once you have your crazy idea sit down with your eyes shut and think about this for at least five minutes. I’m confident that you will shortly feel the benefits from practising with the crazy idea.
How often have you thought along these lines? I don’t have time to amble through dense forest, or climb mountains to look out far and wide from their snowy-tipped peaks, let alone saunter along the tracks of a babbling alpine stream and stargaze at the bejewelled twinkling night sky. To be quite frank, I barely have the time in the morning to finish my coffee before I rush off to get to work on time.
In this day and age we are in a constant rush, and it is true to say, we don’t have much time to go exploring nature. Many of us are committed to a job that requires our presence for five to six days of the week. And when most people do have a holiday they can’t exactly say, okay guys, we are going trekking up the mountain path of Kilimanjaro. The children want to play on the beach and swim in the sea and go on the fairground rides. So a fair question is: how on earth are we expected to find the time to go out and appreciation all of God’s splendour?
The answer is visualisation.
Nobody is professing, visualising yourself walking beside the flowing river with the sun on your back, birds singing, and fresh air pouring into your lungs is equal to the physically experience of an early morning stroll beside the river. But what I am stating, is you can cultivate the art of strongly visualising yourself on the nature walk; it is the next best thing. God gave us the wonderful gift of an imagination. From the confines of your office you can strongly visualise ‘you’ on the beach with rolling white surfs, sunshine, gull flying overhead, and receive the physical pluses you’d experience attending the beach in person. Your parasympathetic nervous and sympathetic nervous system responds to conscious or unconscious thoughts in equal measure. Conscious visualisation is the most underrated human faculty; every invention from the comb to the microchip originated in the imagination of an inventor/forward thinker. However busy your life might seem, I can assure you that if you can find the time to use your gift of imagination/visualisation you will improve your mental/physical health, and reverse the ageing process.
Take a few minutes to sit down, close your eyes, and breathe smoothly and evenly. When you feel relaxed, imagine a dense fir forest, a snow-tipped mountain, or image sauntering along the tracks of a babbling alpine stream. If you find when you look behind closed eyes you see everything but your desired subject, fear not, I can give you some tips that may help with your endeavour.
(1) We unconsciously visualise everything we do before we do it, but we are not used to consciously visualising. Conscious visualisation requires a lot of practise to master. So don’t except to see TV-like images before your closed eyes from the word go. Practise diligently. I guarantee you; it will be well worth the effort.
(2) Find pictures of your chosen subject on line or in a book, and study the pictures to that you can retrieve them behind closed eyes.
(3) Some people find listening to gentle music while they visualise helps with their concentration. Try it and see if this method suit you.
To make the most of visualization we need to open our mind and allow our imagination to wander through the garden of possibility. Do not differentiate between logic and illogical because in visualization we by-pass the nuts and bolts of the mechanical brain which allows us to enter that huge vast space of untapped intelligence. We are going to suspend time that creates the whole concept of ageing, and rediscover the childlike quality that keeps us young.
We are entering the magical world of visualization where all things are possible.
You wake up in the bedroom you slept in as a child. It is a school morning. Sit up in bed and stretch. Can you spot any of your toys, books, or dolls? Perhaps the wallpaper pattern, wall posters, or your bedspread is recognisable. Get out of bed… Put on your dressing gown and slippers. Walk over to the window and draw back the curtains. Rub a porthole in the condensation on the windowpane and peep through it to see outside… You gasp in wonder at the sight of large fluffy snowflakes… and the snowflakes are orange! The rooftops with and smoking chimneys, gardens, coalbunkers and doorsteps lie hidden under twinkling, orange snow. You are extremely excited by this incredible orange wintry landscape. Wash and get dressed into your school uniform. Go to the breakfast room. Think back to this age and how the world around you looked huge. What you enjoyed to eat and drink for breakfast? Perhaps Scott’s porridge oats or hot milk with a sprinkling of sugar on crunchy cornflakes and a cup of tea… Spend a few moments reliving breakfast time as a child…
It is time to go to school. Dress in your winter coat, scarf, mittens, balaclava or bobble hat, and pull on your boots… don’t forget your satchel. Say goodbye to everyone and open the front door…a gust of wind blows fluffy orange snowflakes into the hall. Leave the house. Hear the crunching sound of your boots as they make footprints in the freshly fallen snow; the citrus smell of oranges is everywhere. Walk to school in this silent fairy-tale world. On your way you recognise orange snowy shapes of abandoned cars, post boxes, pavements, and at the school gates, you view the school building as a massive orange ice sculpture. The sound of schoolchildren’s laughter fills the air as they build snowmen and throw orange snowballs through the air. The playground is a colourful mêlée of mittens, hats and scarves as the girls and boys play. Enjoy this amazing sight.
The school whistle blows. You march in single file into the school Assembly hall. Colourful chunks of ice slide from children’s footwear onto the hall floor. The smell of orange mingles with the aroma of lavender floor polish. As you go through the school day, attending lessons, school dinner and playtimes, observe teachers and fellow pupils’ faces. Visualise the blackboard, chalk, wooden desks, and messy inkwells.
On your journey home enjoy splashing through orange slush. The inky-blue sky glitters with stars, and once again the orange snowflakes melt as they land on your dark coat.
You arrive home to a warm coal fire. Complete your homework and then play or watch television. The smell of dinner cooking on the stove teases your appetite. Maybe there is homemade soup, a stew, or bangers and mash…
At bedtime, undress and put on your pyjamas or nightie. Take a last look out of the window at the orange winter wonderland… close the curtains. Perhaps your mum or dad, or a guardian told you bedtime stories and tucked you up in bed with a hot water bottle?
Drift off to sleep.
It is time to return to full waking consciousness. Take a deep breath and become aware of your physical body. When you feel ready open your eyes and gently stretch.
This sounds bizarre, but I even took items out of my freezer and held them to get a physical feeling of iciness, and then I tried to recreate that numbing feeling of iciness during my ‘Orange Snow’ visualisation.
Why not getaway from all of your worldly trials and tribulations and enter your inner universe. Follow this little uplifting visualization to find healing and comfort.
I walk down a path lined with pine trees. Birds sing. Early morning mist seeps through the trees, giving sections of the scented path light and shade. I come to an iron gate, wet with morning dew. It creaks as I open it. I walk through a yellow wheat field with dancing feathery stalks of corn. I come to a lush green meadow. I remove my sandals and walk barefoot on the damp grass. I admire clover, daisies, and buttercups as I walk to the top of the meadow hill, and view the beyond. I walk on…
I come to a golden waterfall. Angels bathe in a turquoise pool bubbling at the foot of the waterfall. The sound of water and the feel of spray on my face greets me as I approach the golden waterfall. Steps lead down to the pool. I take them slowly, with two angels holding my hands. The water is warm. My body feels weightless and tingles all over. Angles play in the water, diving, splashing, and swimming below the surface. Two celestial beings fly me to the top of the waterfall. I admire the amazing view. The spiritual females hold my hands, and with open wings slowly glide me down the face of the falling water.
On my way, I see deceased loved ones smiling at me from behind the veil of gold. The angels return me to the turquoise pool. They tell me the pool has healing properties and swimming in the gifted water will heal me on all levels: spiritually, mehttps://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07WDVCX9Qntally, and physically. I enjoy some time in the pool. I say goodbye to the angels. I leave the pool and the waterfall and retrace the steps of my journey over the meadow, through the wheat field and back up the path lined with pine trees. In my own time, I return to the material plane.
With childlike wonder, you are entering a magical journey through the rainbow of life. You begin your journey strolling over the sand dunes beside the sea. The scent of seaweed rides upon the gentle breeze. From the far horizon you see a rainbow arching across the sky, this brings mermaids out to play. Watch them splashing and diving like friendly dolphins…
Colourful raindrops begin to fall: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, and brilliant-white. The red and orange raindrops fill you with power and energy. The yellow raindrops light up your curiosity and wonder. The green raindrops bring you into harmony with Nature. The blue and violet raindrops heal and fill your soul with joy and the brilliant-white raindrops free your spirit…
In this timeless world All is ‘ONE’ in the playground of eternity where anything is possible. You feel playful and adventurous. Spend a few moments embracing this colourful freedom….
The colours of your spirit emanate across the universe attracting angels caught in the flare of your rainbow beams. The angel reflecting the colour of your needs will come to you, and you will immediately feel safe and protected. Ask your angel to help you on your life’s path and to give you guidance to help achieve your mission on earth. Spend some time with your angel…
Now thank the angels for their assistance and know that they are always there when you need them. Make your way back through the rainbow of life energies.
As you do, become more aware of your physical form. You stand in your renewed body, by the sea once again. The beautiful rainbow begins to fade into the far distance as the mermaids swim out to sea and disappear beneath the twinkling surf. All around is tranquil and peaceful…
It is time to return to wakeful consciousness. Take a deep breath, and become aware of your physical body once again. In your own time open your eyes and gently stretch.
Follow this visualization to find inner peace and harmony. Leave the external world for 10 minutes or so….
Is this visualization, I stand in a perfumed garden admiring flowers and plants that radiate every color of the rainbow. I follow the flight of two bright orange butterflies, walking on glistening grass through a beautiful pink and violet-flowered archway. Through the archway, I continue to stroll, with a blue river flowing beside me…
The butterflies bring me to a heavenly place where the blue river cascades into a large blue pool. Stepping stoned descend from the river bank to the pool. I gracefully float down over the stepping stones to the water’s edge. I emerge my body in the blue healing pool. A white swan glides on the water and a white dove flies overhead and tall pink flowers populate the banks. The overreaching branches of a River Birch shade the pool…
In the next vision I sit crossed-legged, with my eyes gentle shut, hovering a few inches above the surface of the majestic pool. Here in this celestial world, where I am safe and joyful, I enjoy the sound of the cascading water and the tranquility that surrounds me…
REVITALISE YOUR BRAIN THROUGH ABSURDITY THERAPY

What have you seen, heard, or touched today, that you have never encountered in your life before? You will be hard-pressed to come up with an answer. This is because the well of new things to see and do gradually runs dry as we get older. A ‘first’ (a virginal sight of sound, etc.) is like a rare butterfly sighting. But this can all be changed, for we have an amazing power-tool called the imagination. By using the imagination we can invent, create, even lie to ourselves and discover ‘firsts’ (novel sensory inputs).
Why should I want to invent or create?
The brain is jogged by a major event – something new and/or absurd. Children live in a world of absurdity, they have yet to see and know it all; for them, there still exists skeletons in cupboards, fairies at the bottom of the garden, and Santa Claus in Lapland! This newness, ‘firsts’, is unlike normal brain energy; general run-of-the-mill brain stuff doesn’t require extra attention, but absurdity does. An unidentifiable idea enters the brain and has no friends (matching data); it is an absurd/new concept. Your eyes can hardly keep up with children playing in a playground because they are full to the brim with biological energy. Children, because all is new/absurd to them, ceaselessly convert virginal sensory input into energy. The more energy the child expends the more the body reproduces. The child perpetually sees new, and burns energy to leave room for more newness.
RAW COSMIC ENERGY
If you create a song, poem, or picture, you are using raw cosmic energy. A planet, man, animal, or plant, all came into being through the manipulation of raw cosmic energy. Raw cosmic energy is latent substance, which when manipulated in a certain way creates life, objects, or whatever. 1,000 years ago there was no such thing as an aeroplane. Since then many people have manipulated raw cosmic energy (in the form of mental energy) and converted it into physical reality. A little child is channelling raw cosmic energy incessantly, because all is new and unknown. Try this little mind exercise so that you can get a taste of this novel stimulus.
NATURAL BORN CREATOR
Do you know that you are a natural born creator? As a child you had no trouble bringing a toy soldier to life and sending it off to war, or believing that your doll was real and needed motherly love. Let yourself go and allow your childlike imagination to take the reins. Think the most illogical things that you can, then incessantly repeat these illogical ideas within the brain. The brain will electrify with pure cosmic energy. It is what the brain yearns for but rarely gets. That is why the brain becomes sluggish; it likes new stuff, not the old and dull that occupies every minute of the day. No wonder the brain reacts to absurdity by filling your heart with gladness and your veins with childlike energy, for the brain is reborn, consciously reborn by you, the higher self.
YOU HAVE CREATED AN ABSURDITY – HERE’S HOW TO SQUEEZE THE LEMON
Prepare for meditation in the careful way you always do and bring your absurdity to the foreground of your mind, for instance: ‘An octopus playing basketball’.
See the weird creature juggling the ball between eight sinewy tentacles; imagine the super speed that he could bounce the ball using each of his slippery arms. In your mind’s eye create a game for ten minutes using the octopus dribbling and spinning the ball amongst the other tall lanky basketball players helplessly trying to get back the ball. Give the eight-armed star a face and a name; he must become real to your senses. Perhaps you brushed past him in your attempts to recapture the ball; imagine how wet and slippery he must feel. He would smell of the sea and fish, and on the rare occasion you hold the ball it has all these sea elements on its surface.
Absurdities rekindle childlike patterns throughout the brain and body; in terms of sense datum the practitioner’s biological clock immediately rewinds. In the next example it is possible to activate and witness sensorimotor activation: ‘Imagine that you have two invisible limbs, such as two extra arms’.
Imagine that you have two long tentacles alongside your arms. Starting at the shoulder blades the phantom limbs stretch a hand’s length further that your real arms. The next time you’re in the kitchen, imagine reaching out for things in cupboards and drawers with your new additions. Persevere and you’ll get a shock by the fact that you’ll actually begin to feel the phantom limbs!
Continue in this way to deeply impress upon your brain the ideas of your new absurdities. See if you can come up with at least one bizarre or illogical concept a day. Remember that absurdities lie in books, television, and in real life.
Pure essence of mind, or ‘first’, creates biological energy: fusion occurs in the sun between hydrogen atoms to make helium. Chemistry is spontaneous interaction, especially between atomic and molecular systems. A pure thought (latent energy) fuses with physical matter and is converted into biological energy. This biological energy I refer to as ‘zing capsules’. Absurdities induce fleets of these ‘zing capsules’ (atoms filled with biological energy) which zoom around the body distributing childlike energy at various destinations. As an absurdity in itself why not visualise these billions of ‘zing capsules’ charged with energy speeding around the body and brain. Below is some more food for thought.
