Our imagination isn't a frivolous thing reserved only for children. We are the only creatures able to use our imagination to visualise and analyse a future or a past event so it must have a much deeper purpose than just ‘play’.
We often take this ability for granted, not realising that our imagination is potentially a portal to our future; the entry point to an alternate reality and our access to 'the field' where all things are possible.
Napoleon Hill described the imagination as the most '...miraculous, inconceivably powerful force that the world's ever known.'
Einstein said 'Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world.' 🙌🏽✨
We predominantly use our imagination to stress about the future or worry about the past, completely ignoring its profound potential to manifest. If you take a moment to look around your room, everything you see was initially created by someone using their imagination. Everything started out as a thought.
Our imagination is a powerful tool. By utilising it in the right way we can accomplish the most incredible feats - We can not only heal our bodies but we can transport ourselves to the near or distant future, we can connect to other dimensions, other worlds, have conversations with our future self, our past self or seek wisdom from spiritual teachers. Everything is possible.
YOUR IMAGINATION WORKSHOP
One hugely beneficial way to use our imagination is to treat it like a 'workshop'. When we sit to visualise our desired future but then that fearful or doubtful thought creeps in, rather than becoming disillusioned, we can work with that thought and turn it around. This is your playground, so it's a completely safe place to create and explore more favourable possibilities.
If a doubting thought comes up whilst visualising, like 'I can't do this.' or 'People will judge me if I do that.' Then continue to use your imagination to soothe yourself with words like '..but what if I can do this? What would life look like?' or 'What if everyone was really supportive and happy for me?’, ‘What expressions would l see on their faces? ‘What would they be saying to me?’, ‘How would I feel?'
You might need to repeat the process for a few days to keep soothing the doubts but this is exactly what needs to happen in order to 'workshop' the fears and iron out the bugs in your vision until you can just enjoy what you see.
If you are unable to visualise, it's a skill that can be practised and learned but you can try connecting to the feeling of your future instead of trying to visualise it.
A great way to commit to using your imagination in this more empowering way is to make visualising your future part of your daily meditation practice. You can even set your alarm for any time during the day as a reminder to stop what you're doing and visualise for 5 minutes.
Five minutes may sound short but the impact is exponentially more powerful than a whole day of worrying and will soon start to make you feel more optimistic about life and your future. It begins as a crack of light amongst the darkness that will keep expanding and growing until your whole world is a brighter place to be.
Visualising my desired future has been a key part of my meditation practice every day for the last 7 years. My life has changed because of it. It’s also the most enjoyable aspect and always leaves me feeling uplifted.
By doing this daily, you are CREATING the future you want to see, regardless of what's going on in your life currently. Everything is temporary and in time, you will be living your vision in this 3D reality.
As the saying goes, what we experience today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, so our thoughts of today are creating our tomorrow.
