Joseph Phillips has been a keen correspondent for a number of months and has made remarkable progress with his own image-streaming experiments.

Joseph used his newly unleashed genius to come up with an image-streaming technique all of his own, and has kindly agreed to share it with you here...

It's over to you, Joseph!



The Mirror Mirror Technique of Image Streaming

By Joseph Phillips

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest one of all?" Was a question, one of many, asked by the queen in the fairy tale "Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs." The magical, omnipotent mirror was held by the queen and can be asked any question the queen dare wishes.
Every person has an unconscious, subconscious mind which is omnipotent. The trick is to create a gateway to your subconscious mind. Your subconscious mind should act as a consultant which ever image it may take in your own magical mirror. This advanced technique is a complex form of image-streaming. Image-streaming will be listed below.

How to Image-Stream

What you need is an external focus to describe your images to. A tape recorder with blank tape, or a simple Dictaphone like every office used to have, provides you a potential listener for that all-essential focus. Call in a friend, or phone to call up a friend and keep him or her on the line, and you have, even better, a live listener to serve as that external focus.

Of that half of you who did get an image, some found a strong, clear, definite image or set of images, while others just got a glimpse, a faint impression which you might think was hardly worth describing, or weren't certain whether you were just making up the idea rather than seeing an image —

— Yet whatever you got, the key is to examine and describe it aloud, in as rich detail as possible even if you feel at first as if you are "forcing" it and "making up" some of it to fill your description to your external focus listener. More, though, and more, will come as you describe — be alert to this happening, and describe the new impressions when they come. Your images will become rich and vivid and even their meanings — as Image-Stream contents are often symbolic or metaphoric — will start to become apparent.

That is Image-Streaming. Each full-flow Image-Streaming session should run from 10 to 30 minutes. Examine whatever images happen to be playing in your mind's eye at the time, while describing them in rich detail to a live or potential listener (person or tape recorder). Even minimum, trivial-seeming impressions or whatever: describe them in such richly textured detail as to force anyone listening to experience and see what you are describing. 10 to 20 minutes at a time, practice several hours of Image-Streaming and you will have mastered the basic skills needed to make other forms of visual thinking work for you. — And you will also have experienced some of the other benefits of Image-Streaming as well, including improved intellectual performance and creativity.

Even if your imagery is already clear and vivid, you will be astonished at how much more so it quickly becomes when you describe it in this way, while continuing to examine it. This improvement is even stronger if —

You describe in as sensory-textured detail as possible. The major part of your brain that we want to bring on line, works with sensory images even in profoundly intellectual matters. Explanation takes you away from that sensory immediacy. Instead of saying, "I'm at the beach" or "This is Virginia Beach," detail instead the warmth of sand under your toes, the sound of surf, the smell of salt, the wheeling of the gulls above you in the almost-white sky, black and white of the gulls on that paler white far above you ....

Describe as rapidly as you can, to get more and more detail in. Describe faster than you can stop to judge whether or not something is worth mentioning, just go ahead and flow it through (and see what comes with it). This is a kind of "brainstorm" only with description instead of ideas or answers, and has a similar rule to brainstorming's "if it occurs to you, express it!" Really rapid-flow describing exerts almost a Venturi force or suction pulling other perceptions into focus.

All this is done most easily with eyes shut, so that your inner visual circuits aren't distracted away from these initially subtler signals, and so they can operate at full sensitivity. In other words, please keep eyes closed during such processing, in order to see more freely.

Now that you are familiar with image-streaming, I will explain how to do my Mirror-Mirror On The Wall technique.


1. Get into a comfortable and quiet place where you will not be disturbed for at least 15 to 30 minutes. Make sure you have a tape recorder or something or someone who will record your descriptions. (Tape recorder works well because it can record all your details.) (Make sure no mirror is present in the room.)
2. Close your eyes and imagine a mirror. Describe everything about your mirror. While talking out loud. Include all 5 senses about your mirror. Describe until you can perfectly see your mirror in your head. Describe for about 5 to 10 minutes.
3. Now look into your mirror and wait for your mirror image to appear or whatever image takes its place in your mirror image.(You must not edit or judge this image. The image that forms in your mirror is your sub-conscious consultant. You must not JUDGE!) Describe out loud what you see.
4. Now ask your question. Begin your question with "Mirror,mirror on the wall," then state question. (You should say "Mirror,mirror on the wall," with your question so that your brain knows your are directing the question to him. Since it knows no mirror is present in the room.)
5. Describe outloud all images that appear in the mirror or come out the mirror. All images are some how relevant to the answer of your question.
6. If you can not figure out the relationship of all these images. Simply ask your mirror "Mirror,mirror on the wall, how are all these images related?"  

Now you know my technique, you are ready for any problem that awaits. Remember the three rules of my technique.
1. Begin every question with "Mirror,mirror on the wall..."
2. No mirror should be present in your room.
3. Describe all descriptions out loud.
