Hi! 

Nice to read about other who also have this "function" with the eyes. 

I am trying to keep my image,, wehen it appears,, as long as I can. It dissappearance and it cones back. Until today, it's almost every time in the night 

My picture with the sky ant trees, I have now only one time this picture in the day time!!! It's like I was behind a bush or in a forest, looking between the leaves, it was a sunny day, no people, just nature. 

This function, everyone has. Dreams. 

If you want advice on how to keep your image, let me know.

But it’s just dreams, normal sleep related phenomena.

I'm like you lightly... been having vivid dreams my entire life.  Lucidity and control of dreamscapes started as a child for me and continue to this day.  Dreams are as vivid and often far more vivid than waking life.

But... Some people (quite a few actually) cannot form mental images at all.  Complete blank.  It is called Aphantasia.  It's the inability to picture things in one's imagination.

I discovered my wife of 32 years is Aphantasiac fairly recently while I was trying to get her to describe a house she was in.  I build for a living and am collecting ideas for our retirement house, so as I kept pressing her for details about this house in her dream she finally, rather exasperatedly stated "Well, it's not like I see the house in my dream.  It's just a feeling.  you know?  I feel it, not see it." 

So I searched the interwebs and voila'!  Aphantasia affects a surprisingly large number of people (i forget the %).

My Partner does not form mental images in dreams or in day dreaming.  For her... she feels a scene, there's just a knowingness about the dream's landscape and settings.  And for her, the setting of a dream (the house, beach, amusement park, whatever the setting is) is not the focus, it's the relationship of herself to what is occuring that is primary.

 

As for the OP and seeing scenes unfolding with eyes closed.  This is action in the Third Eye and can be a combination of seeing actual events, or like a dream, can be the mind's manufacturing just like dreams, pure fiction based on impulses and feelings in the moment. 

Taoism and Buddhism make extensive use of this skill for higher meditation practices.  Druidic and European Shamanism, Native American, Australian Aborigines (Dream Time) all talk extensively about this natural process for humans.  Those particularly gifted were revered and often trained by another who was versed in it.

Several years ago, my vision abilities began to play out with eyes open.  I play Qi Gong every day in the evenings while staring at a blank wall in my home.  Several years ago, in the midst of doing my forms, static images would present themselves on the wall.  Always in monochrome, like a blue filtered black and white film image.  High detail, photo-realistic.  Eventually they began to unfold into full moving scenes, like a film.

While it was interesting, it was quite unwelcome, unsought and a distraction to the process I was engaging in.  For when working with Qi, the quality of emotions, affects the tone of the energy.  So having these scenes play out was rather exciting and at times, unnerving, which is not conducive to the tone of energy I was cultivating.  Over time I diminished them through intent and changing up the times I practiced.

There are myriad avenues to explore and boost this natural ability out there.  If you're interested, start searching and the right doors will undoubtedly open for you.

 

Cheers and happy hunting.

wow I  just discovered this post I am also am Aphantasic but mine was self  created when, as a kid, i trained my mind not to  be able to see any images  because i kept seeing snakes 

The condition varies For me it seems to have been associated with MORE vivid and real dreams, although for over 60 years i could not create the simplest visual image while conscious  And like yours my dreams are so real that i had to develop reality checkers to establish when i was dreaming.

Now i never dream without knowing it is a dream, but tha t is  due to training  and practice 

Its actually a small percentage of people who have the condition (about 1-3%) It was recognised about a hundred years ago but never investigated or named until this century

Wow I’m glad to know I’m not the only one. But mine is not when I’m sleeping. Try this technique but be careful I don’t know just how safe it is. Ball up you’re fist and place them as if you were rubbing eyes but gently push towards you’re closed eye lids and don’t push so hard it hurts stop just before this point and wait. Clear you’re mind and relax wipe everything that’s bothering you from you’re mind in that moment and tell yourself you get this one moment to relax and be yourself. Then while still holding this position focus on what you are really seeing. Some people I’ve come across see nothing others see things like I’ve seen. I’ve seen faces, very intricate designs that were more like crop circle designs. Almost mathematically drawn out that there is no way I could have come up with I suck at math. 
I figured this out back in the 70’s when I was a kid. I never have completely understood what it is. The faces I seen while doing this I never recognized. Many of the designs I have used in art work I draw and paint. And it’s always black and white the white part is always very dim unless I push my fist harder then it gets brighter but hurts my eyes. I have turned these designs into tribal designs on motorcycles, automobiles and some tattoos. It’s always black and white that’s the only two colors I use and I’m not color blind. I’m sure the best explanation for this is related to the pain you’re eyes suffer from while doing it. I think it causes them to fire images to the brain based on the pain. But who knows.
Hope this helps.

If you read through the whole conversation, including my first comment, you will understand what it's about. This Thimoty knows exactly what he is talking about and defenitly gave me the most intelligent answer, that is why I wanted to give him a compliment!

I have never heard anybody tell me that answer! Super génial, ce mec!!!

Timothy,

I know exactly what you mean when it cones out.  I also see leaves waving as I'm looking up into the sky.  I have also seen with my eyes shut the sky with the stars aligned exactly as they were that night.  I walked outside and it was a very clear night.  I saw the sky exactly the same as I saw with my eyes closed.  It was amazing, but did not last long. When I went back inside to try it again, it was gone.  There is a phenomena.  I'm very anxious to speak to other with the same experiences.

Think a lot of people see these psychedelic patterns when rubbing your eyes, they are called phospenes.  Looks like there's a few caused for them, but the pressure phosphene (rubbing your eyes) I think is the most common  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phosphene

Hi there just two days ago from today's date October 13th 2020. I was laying down in my bed thinking how can I turn this picture back on that I be seeing with my eyes closed. May I remind you that these pictures are different there in color they move. Object Like Houses trees blowing in the wind people walking down the street buildings. I wondered how can I turn this on and off of course this was impossible to do. Laying down in my bed relaxing I seen a picture it was all red but in the picture they were people outline in red couldn't figure that one out except for fire in the area.

The same day I have a numerous of pictures like five these time I close my eyes the second one somebody's yard with a fence around the house wooden fence I seen stairsteps to the interests of to the door down the street I seem trees and cars parked on the street. I like you to know are there any other people that has the same experience. Does it have anything to do with the universe other dimensions or am I seeing the future I would like to know thank you.

Thanks for posting this 

I to have experienced this it’s important to point out this is not like seeing a picture in your head or mind it’s as if a movie was playing on your eyes

over a 20 year . This has happened to me 100 times although in the last five years maybe once or twice my favorite was  when living in Seattle I saw people

I knew from work talking directly to a camera that my Eyes saw explaining to me what they had done to me and that they would never do it again because they knew it was wrong it always people I recognize
