Way back when, I used to be a competitive swimmer. As part of our training, we used to go through visualization exercises. The big one that I found to help my races was "The Winning Edge in Sports" series. It involved relaxing your physical and mental self to prepare you for competition.
Of course when I stopped swimming, I thought I had no more use for the exercises. However, one day I decided to do it just for the heck of it, and I found it to be relaxing. The next time I did it, I decided to modify it so instead of competing athletically, I was doing something else. It turned out to work just as well. So as time went on, I continued to tweak and work on this for personal use.
One day around the beginning of my first year of college, I hung out with this group of girls. It was just a random spur of the moment thing. There was one problem, however: they were all tired. They were very unresponsive and non-engaging. That's when I remembered "Hey, my visualization exercises could probably wake them up". So I run the whole group through the 15 minutes of it, and all of a sudden they are no longer tired. Not only that, they are super happy and they keep saying "We should do that again!"
What I did know at the time was that my visualization exercises could be applied to things outside of swimming, and that it had a social use.
What I DIDN'T know at the time was that I had just big time picked up those girls. To this day, they are still very good friends with me.
The reason I had never thought about it as a trick before was because I had never been introduced to the power of games before. After reading some of Derek Rake's stuff and reading about visualization, I had discovered:
"Hey, I know how to do this!"
When I started really looking into pickup games, that's when I discovered:
"Hey, I could use this to pick up women!"
So thus, I went about tweaking my visualization exercise from a self improvement thing into a full-fledged pickup weapon. I redesigned this to work the way I want it to, and I tested it on myself, but not on anybody else. I do know, however, that visualization is extremely effective. The completed product is based on the Winning Edge in Sports Series with a twist on catching her interest and feelings and raising rapport.
I now give you the process of how to go about with this visualization technique. It should take somewhere between 13 and 20 minutes, depending on how you run it. The best time to do it is when she is talking about how tired, exhausted or stressed out she is. I do believe though that this can work at any other time.

The first thing you should do is have her lie down on a comfortable surface in a place where the two of you will not be disturbed for at least twenty minutes.
When she has found a position, have her position her arms at her side and have her lay at her back.
From here on out, I will begin going through what I say verbally, including pauses as I do so, so then no one gets confused and rushes through things. Remember, go through this slowly and don't rush.
"Now, I want you to focus on a spot on the ceiling directly above you. Do not take your focus off of this spot."
"Now, I want you to begin breathing very slowly. As you breath, imagine each breath as ripples spreading out through your body. As each ripple spreads through your body, you feel yourself beginning to relax."
"Now, to establish some rhythm to your breathing, I want you to count your next six exhalations, making sure to breath in deeply and exhale deeply."
[brief pause] (NOTE: You don't have to let her get to six)
"Now I am going to count to five, and when I get to five your eyes are going to be completely closed and you will be in a relaxed state. We're going to start now with:"
"One. You're continuing to stare at that spot on the ceiling, focusing in deeply on it."
"Two. You're still focusing in on that spot on the ceiling."
"Three. You are beginning to feel your eyelids get heavy and feel them beginning to drop down. You don't fight it because you want to get relaxed and you want to feel good."
"Four. Your eyelids are getting heavier and heavier and you feel them coming down more and more and:"
"Five. Your eyelids are completely down now, and you are beginning to feel relaxed."
"Now, we are going to relax you physically, by tensing up and relaxing all of the muscles in your body. We will start at the forehead and work all the way down to the toes."
"Now, begin by flexing the muscles in your forehead. Feel your forehead become tight as you hold it [very short pause], feel it [very short pause], and now with a deep exhale, relax the muscles in your forehead, feeling that tight tense feeling becoming replaced with that warm, relaxed feeling."
(Run this through the rest of the body in this order: jaw, neck and shoulders, arms, abs, thighs, calfs, feet)
"Now your whole body should be warm, and heavy, and relaxed."
"Now, we are going to focus on relaxing yourself mentally. Picture yourself on a tropical island beach somewhere in the South Pacific. You are standing on this beach, the ocean with it's rolling waves on one side of you and the tropical forest with it's tropical greens and sounds of wildlife to the other side. Above you is a bright blue sky with some white fluffy clouds lazily rolling by. You feel a cool breeze blowing across your face lightly and you take a deep inhale, smelling that pleasant salt breeze as you do so. You begin to walk down this beach, feeling the warm sand in between your toes. As you walk, you can feel the sun shine on you and warm your whole body."
"Now I am going to let you stay on this beach for a while, and allow yourself to soak in all of these warm, relaxing, happy feelings of this place. I will come and get you when it is time to move on"
[Pause for about 30 seconds]
"Now, it is time for you to move on. You look next to you and you see a giant golden door. You approach this door, knowing that behind this door is one of the happiest, most relaxing places you have ever been to. It can be somewhere far, far away, a memory or somewhere very special to you, or right back here on this beach. You reach out to the door knob and grasp the handle, turning it and opening the door. You walk through the door and step into the happiest, most relaxing, most positive place you have ever been in."
"I will leave you in this place, allowing you to soak up all the warm, happy, positive feelings of this place. I will come get you when it is time for us to leave."
[pause for about 30 seconds]
"Now it is time for us to leave. You finish whatever you are doing right now, and then you head back to the golden door that you first came through. You approach this door, knowing that when you leave, all of the positive, motivating feelings you have gathered here will follow you. You reach out to grab the door knob and you open the door, taking with you all of the positive, happy, motivating feelings you have gathered."
"You step through through the door and find yourself on the beach where we first started. I will count from five down to one, and when I get to one you will be wide awake, more positive, more rested, more blissful than you were before."
"Five. You are still on the beach, enjoying the sites and sounds of everything around you."
"Four. You are beginning to become conscious of your breathing with each exhale that you take."
"Three. You are getting ready to wake up, feeling all the positive energy in you flowing through your body."
"Two. You are almost ready to wake up. You know that when you wake up you will feel more positive, more energized, more relaxed than you were when you started."
"And One, you open your eyes now, feeling more positive, more awake, more energized than you were before."

This visualization exercise does many good things that will help you really hook the girl.
The first thing this does is create a severe sense of relaxation and comfort in her. By relaxing all of the muscles in her body and being able to focus herself in a happy place, she has now released all of the stress in her body. She will also associate this with you, as you were responsible for freeing her from the stress she had been experiencing.
The second thing she will associate with you is a sense of happiness and bliss. It does not matter if you were in that special place or not, and it does not matter what it was. The most important thing is that she will associate that happy memory or experience with YOU because YOU guided her and allowed her to experience it.
The third thing she will associate with you is a sense of depravity. There is a reason she was only allowed to stay in these positive places for a short time. She won't want to leave, and when she does she will feel an emptiness that she will directly associate with you being able to fill it up.
The fourth thing is that it will shoot up rapport. Because you relaxed her in a way that she did not think about, she will see you as understanding her better than anyone else. Because you were actively involved in all of her experiences, she will feel a link with you.
The reason I know she will associate it with you? As you were going through the mental part of it, you said "we". You said that you were going to get her from the beach. You said that you were going to get her from her happy place. You incorporated yourself into her visualization, thus you are involved with her experiences.
Visualization is some deep and powerful stuff. The reason I'm good at it is because I've been working at it for five years. I offer this technique, with 100% field success, to the community to use. I recommend practicing it on yourself first before anyone else, just so you can get the gist of how to do it.
