People often talk about "visualising" things. I have always been interested in this alleged phenomenon, but all my life, have never managed to actually "see" something in my mind. I don't know if it is because of a head injury I had when I was very young or because I am just not "doing it right" :-)
When I close my eyes, I see nothing. Absolutely NOTHING. However I try, I cannot bring up an image of anything. This is most frustrating as people often say "Oh just imagine that person and surround them with light" or "picture yourself in a green field" or "imagine yourself in that house you want".
I try and try and try and all I can "see" is just darkness...
I see heaps of stuff in my dreams though, and often have VERY lucid dreams and sometimes even see VERY realistic scenes when I am in a half-awake state... it is as if I am staring THROUGH my eyelids at the scene before me, but when I am awake, no go.
Am I the only one that has this problem ?
