What To Try When You Just Can’t ‘See’ Anything In A Visualization

Do you struggle to see any pictures in your mind at all when trying to create a visualisation? If so you are not alone. Many people find it hard to see clear images of memories in their mind’s eye and just get a fuzzy impression, but for some it’s as if their minds are completely ‘blind’ and all they see is ‘whiteness’ or ‘blackness’ on their internal movie screen. This is a condition called Aphantasia and it may run in families and affect an estimated 2 – 5% of the population.
