Mary, when someone has been closed off for so long, it takes time. Even a little bit is progress. It has to be something he desires so much (and not what someone else wants for him) that he will practice until he can do it. In some situations, there are blockages that can be dealt with through inner healing, DNA cleansing, and a variety of other things that involve people dealing with stuff in their lives that have "held them hostage." As we begin to take care of the junk in our lives, our "seeing" opens up. If I were in your shoes, I'd start releasing the Love of God over your husband. Ask God what else He may want you to release over him, too. This is a starting point.Sure, he cannot see with his minds eye. He does not have dreams or visions of any kind. If you say picture an apple, well... he can't.
He went to an ayahuasca and peyote retreat in Ecuador, because others had been cured by those experiences. He can see when under those but barely and it doesn't open his minds eye permanently. He has tried new age and secular methods with no good results. He was an atheist up until just over a year ago. A progress that is a result of me praying for him again. God has told me that my husband will find him when he is ready. He has unbelief because he is completely in the physical, here and now. He has memories, but they are just data. I believe if he could begin to see with his minds eye, and visualize, my husband would be able to open up to belief.
