The Art of Seeing, What are you Seeing ?

The Art of Vision, What are you Seeing ?

Foresight and Now Presence is Critical to being able to see clearly all of your surroundings, options, outcomes as is being able to see and find beauty in any and all given situations.  As you get more in tune with self, your surroundings and your partner, you will start to develop a keen sense of sight.  This skill if nourished and developed will serve immensely in business, personal and all relationships. When entering any room take the time to scan it, the entire room, look at EVERYTHING and take everything in, make this a habit.  Being able to retain information on what you saw can be a crucial piece of information needed to seal a relationship or business deal, you never know.

People love it when you comment on something they were wearing at a party you saw them at, it shows them you remembered them and were paying enough attention to remember that detail about them.  When meeting someone that you like or at a networking event or business venue practice this skill, take the time to truly SEE them, soak in their details, make it a fun exercise. Test yourself a day later and see what you remembered, some even take notes about the People they find of interest, especially nowadays with the invention of  the new intuitive Smart phones, it is easy to enter a note about that person in your contact info, a great business tool.

Sight is crucial to being a detailed oriented person and being a Master at Creating.  Sight  also comes into play with organization, you can’t live this life without having superior organizational skills as you are juggling and wearing multiple hats at once. Learn how to manage your time and organize everything in your life, it will make your Journey much easier and you won't be wasting yours and others valuable precious time looking for things.

Questions to ask yourself:
*Do you have good vision ?
*Are you a visionary ?
*Do you dream in color ?
*Do you remember details ?
*Are you detailed oriented person ?
*Are you organized ?
*When you are looking at something are you truly looking at it or immediately in the place of judging it ?

*When you look at yourself in the Mirror do you truly LOOK at yourself ?
*Are you a person that avoid’s eye contact ?
*When you look at others are you taking the time to make eye contact ?
*Can you stare into someone’s eyes for at least 30 seconds ?
*Does having someone look at you make you feel uncomfortable ?
*Can you be fully vulnerable and present before another ?

EXERCISES Take turns:

*Give your partner an object at that means something to you and have them tell you what they see. Take turns go through this 3x.

How detailed were they ? 
Were the details linear, visual, feeling oriented, in depth or did they just rush through it ? 
Did they go blank ?
What was the primary Sensory wording used to describe the object ?

*Show your Partner a picture, have them Look at the picture for 1 minute - TIME THIS; and then turn the picture over.  Take turns go through this 3X.

Then have partner describe as in much detail as possible what they saw.  How much did they remember ?  
Was it hard for them to remember ?  
Did they go to a place of panic and freeze, go blank ? 
Was the description Experiential ?
Did the description paint a picture ?
What was the primary Sensory wording used to describe the picture ?

  1. Well done Carly Alyssa :o) As one truly "sees,' it is then that we can be here in the now.

    Using the four top input sensors; Audio, Visual, Kinesthetic and Olfactory, it is often fun to sharpen each sense, at first, one at the time (remember 5 things you saw, 5 things you can hear, feel), until all senses are laser points and floodlight as well. Keep stretching the mind, keep pushing to find the 5 for 3 unique rounds (See 5, Hear 5, etc x 3.

    1. Thanks Pete.. I Love the senses and they teach us sooo much if we are in tune with them...
