|Dancing in Imagination|
Watercolour by Beverly Blanchard
Your imagination is working 24/7 and for most people it is filled with negative inner dialogue. According to the Law of Reflection and the Law of Projection, the people and situations you don’t like are usually arriving in your life as a result of the mental conversations you have with yourself every day. What you are thinking at any point of time is creating your future, and it is this unconscious inner dialogue that is writing the script of your life. Don’t like what is happening in your life then you must become aware of your internal conversations.
For sake of simplicity let me give you an analogy to assist you in understanding how your imagination works. In this analogy, there are two beings. There is the outer you and the inner you. The outer you is based on your physical senses and defines itself by the so-called facts of reality. I have only this much money in my bank account. I weigh this amount. I have this illness. I see that tree. I live in this house. I have this problem person in my life.
The inner you is based on spiritual sensation or feelings, and is your imagination. It is not defined or confined by the facts. It can transcend time and space. It has the ways and means to achieve the desired result. It does not distinguish between good or bad. It takes its direction by what you are mentally feeding it.
Your moods are the energy that drives your imagination. Within your imagination there are various states of being. For you to become or achieve what you desire you must occupy the desired state within your mind. To find the feelings associated with the end-result you can start by asking yourself these questions: What would the feeling be like if this idea was true? What would I feel like if I was the person I want to be? What would I see, hear, feel and sense? You have to catch the feeling because the mood determines your success. If you can imagine it within your mind it will materialize in the physical but you have to walk in the assumption of the wish fulfilled.
Do not ask how it is going to be done. Do not ask when it is going to be done. Your inner being looks after that. You must make a radical change in your state of mind and direct your inner dialogues to what you want to hear, feel and see. As Einstein said, “Your imagination is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”
In the next posts, I will show you ways of working with your imagination. In the meantime, enjoy a clip from Pixar's movie "The Incredibles".
