No. If you're going to treat it sephirothically, "matrix of subconscious mind" is Yesod.

How can this visualization technique be further empowered?

By further steps, taught (usually under obligation) in some esoteric schools.

Is there anything you can say, or point us to what to read about visualizing better that is available to the public?

Thank you.

Wow, you're making me think back three years and try to figure out what in the world I had in mind at the time :D

On brief reflection, the following comes to mind: There are various books on visualization techniques in the usual New Age section (and some things scattered through the Business section, but harder to find). I don't have a recommendation on one of these over another - they all cover some basics.

Another thing that fortifies it enormously is stuff basic to meditation: Physical relaxation, using breath to level out the mind and general energies, and focused attention. Practicing these basic drills (as taught in numerous places) helps significantly.

A third thing (and this might touch on the stuff I was thinking about) is to find some way to energize it - to bring psychological, emotional (while still) energy into the visualizations. I'm not at liberty to mention certain specific things (Artisans and Adorers of T.'.O.'.T.'. will know the training I'm talking about, probably), but you can find your own way to let all of your psychological force, plus an openness to force flowing in from outside of you, flow into the images.

Does that help?
