In your approach, do you visualise the written words as a photographic memory?
I don't visualize the 'words', as such, I attempt to visualize the 'referents', or the meaning, or what is being referred to. One way to describe it might be to ask: What would your visual symbols be for each idea you wanted to 'get across' if you couldn't speak or write?
First, I had to go through the prayer and relearn appropriate meanings for the words that I had normally associated with organized religion - divine, creation, etc. My original idea was just to be satisfied I didn't have any 'leftover' religious programming associated with the Prayer.
I wanted to make sure that I had visual representations for each word of the Prayer so that I could see each one in my mind's eye...for example, the way I did 'Divine' here.
Then I went further. I decided if I could do that for every word, I might have a more powerful technique for communication, since visual symbols can pack a much greater quantity of information in a smaller 'space' and with more feeling than a 'word train' can.
The only real trouble I had was trying to decide whether the word 'of' should be represented as 'coming from' or 'belonging to'. I finally decided since we are not really 'standalone' entities, but that we seek to join Cosmic Mind in co-linear, objective conscious awareness, then our parts really belong to a greater whole and, therefore, 'belonging to' seemed most appropriate.
So, with that all done, I could follow along with the Prayer recital, with an uninterrupted flow of visual symbols flowing into each other.
Individual's visualizations should probably be personal (I don't know), but if you can imagine what it would be like to feel a deep down spiritual ache or urge to 'reach out' and direct (breath) your inner vision to try and energetically connect with the light of objective consciousness/knowledge/love emanating from the deep field of energy frequencies embedded and permeating and dynamically flowing through 'all space everywhere', then you have a good idea of what I mean by visualizing/experiencing the phrase "Divine Cosmic Mind".
Hope that wasn't too confusing. It's a lot different to describe the process than it is to just do it. :)
