THE PAST ABUSE OF YOUR IMAGINATIONMany of us ignore the power we have within ourselves. We ignore the power behind choosing a new choice. We ignore the power of ideas. We ignore that fact that using our imagination is something so marvelous it changes our lives. Ignoring isn't just what we do. We forget to use our imaginations because we have entertainment instead. We abuse our imaginations because we tend to use it for entertainment purposes only. Watch a TV show or a movie is helping you get new ideas into your head BUT; The abuse happens because we are passive about it. We don't think. Meaning we have visual images going through our mind but we don't think about them or even change them in our imaginations consciously. We rarely stretch our mind enough with a new idea to play with it internally.
If we had a child that we ignored mostly day in and day out we'd be brought up on charges of emotional neglect, child abuse, wouldn't we? Even if we didn't know any better. Ignorance is no excuse under the law. Our imagination needs more than just some activity going through its halls.
Your imagination wants to be played with. To be probed. To be alive with more than impressions from the outside world of what is. It wants to be come live within you with new worlds. It wants to contribute to you. It wants to become your warrior of purpose and passion. It may not tell you that because it has no tongue and even though it doesn't have a tongue it has this capabilities you can tap into easily.
AVATARThis movie represents almost a lifetime of thinking about a certain subject by James Cameron. At this time the Avatar the movie is the biggest grossing movie ever beating out his last blockbuster Titanic by almost 1 billion dollars. Now I personal have seen it 3 times total on the 3D Screen (2 times of those was also in 3D and on an IMAX screen). James created this world with stunning results. Invented a new way to do 3D and brought the colors out amazingly so in a theater experience you may not have had ever previously. He added value to us with his vision, his story, his ability to invent new ways to let us see a new world. The story had combined elements from other stories and it created a compelling new never before seen story and movie. That is using his imagination.
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO NOURISH YOUR IMAGINATION LATELY?Your imagination is your servant. It does your bidding. If you have a servant but never instruct them to clean, cook, or drive for you it is the same as not having a servant. How have you used your imagination lately? Have you just watched and read something to be entertained or have you created something new out of those ideas? Have you found a better ideal to live in? Have you imagined a life without the safety net of not knowing exactly what it would be like? Have you given your self some rich intentions to fulfill and went for it - even though you weren't that sure about it? Have you created a new primary aim and through all your imaginations power and then started moving towards having that specific aim?
Have you taken the thing you desire and combined them with other things you desire to create a new vivid picture you can frame within your minds eye? Do you realize that everyday when you see, feel, and hear with only your physical senses you are starving your imagination?
What have you seen, heard, or felt that wasn't there before and then you practiced creating it through faith into your existence? You being a selector and creator of your reality you can take it further than ever before? You have the same capacity as an Einstein, Mozart, or Leonardo da Vinci. The spiritual gifts you develop here on this physical Earth are helping you become more as you become consciously aware that you really can be more and have more. And yet you can assume a state without any spiritual gifts and that state becomes real.
Have you become fascinated with something? Researched every aspect of it? Do you feel curiosity on a regular basis? Do you learn so you can constantly bring new ideas to expand your life? Do you combined those ideas to make a more efficient home? A more productive business? Happier people around you because you tweaked a new way to live? What big thing have you imagined lately and put it into the play of your life?
WHAT ARE YOU IMAGINING?So what exactly have you visualized, heard, or felt as true for yourself or someone else lately? A great practice is to let go of your senses at least once a day and create a wonderful scene you'd want to live in your head and act it out within. Take in new magazines you wouldn't normally read. Go play hopscotch after school when the kids are gone or better still take your kids with you if you have any and then play on the swing set. Skip in the rain safely. Play in the snow. Make a snow angel. Get playful and experiment with the life you desire on the inside. Maybe go get tea at the most expensive Hotel in towns dinning room. Take your life to the next level by imagining something you have never imagined before. Go to the biggest toy store in your city and find something that makes you feel like a kid again. Buy it. Play with it for a full afternoon on a weekend. Invite friends.Play dough is fun. Crayons are a hoot too. Draw. Doodle. Ignite your imagination.
Invent something-anything that has never existed-even if it is just in your thoughts. As people are more into and using social networking more they are finding alternative ways to live, generate an income, love, connect, and add value. I watch Alice in Wonderland recently and I loved one lines from it.
The text is from Through the Looking Glass
"Alice laughed. "There's no use trying," she said: "one can't believe impossible things."
"I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
So what six impossible things have you ever imagined as possible? What if you did this like the Queen for one week? Could you find answers you never knew you had? Could you invent a new way of being? Of singing? Of working? Of shopping? Of traveling? Of generating income?
Practice. What if you believed 1 impossible thing about yourself today? Just take one thing that would be a blast to believe about yourself even though it might be impossible. What would you believe? Suspend the critical part of your brain and just imagine one impossible thing for yourself! What would it be? What if once you found that one impossible thing for you that then you let that thinking loose on your friends, family, neighborhood, state, country, and world. Wouldn't that be fun? What one thing would you like to imagine as possible that you once believed was impossible? Now what if you imagined 6 just today?
I M POSSIBLEHave you notice the answer lies in the word impossible. It also spells I M possible. Which is the answer to everything that seems impossible. You go to the I on the inside of you and meditate upon it and let the Universe answer because it knows the answer.
Believe that all things are possible to you and that you are what you want to be. Persist in that assumption and it will harden into fact. Having assumed the life you now live, no one can take it from you but yourself! You have the power to lay it down by no longer being conscious of it, and the power to pick it up again through consciousness.So what if you accomplish one impossible thing a month in your life? Imagine that would drastically change your life? Giving the impossible things a possibility creates the space to have it hatched out of the Universe into your life. As much as you believe that things look as though they comes from the visible they actually come out of the unseen, the invisible, behind the scenes quantum field.
FACE REALITYMost people will tell you to face reality. From parents, siblings, teachers, friends, and well meaning strangers they want you to be happy with your cards. Be happy with what your lot is in life. Conform. Don't go against the tide! Be like us.
You want to hear a death rattle? Do it like someone else. Conform to their opinion of you. Don't invent from your view point. Don't add value to the world. Did you notice that when you read this that you almost get defensive. Writing it and reading it puts the sting back into what most people are doing unconsciously.
You are one in zillion! How about if you act like it now if you aren't already? You imagining the best world for yourself. The desires you have are yours alone. No one will express them exactly the same way as you do ever. You are a finger print of God. You have so much to add to all of our worlds just by being here. Just by attempting and possibly succeeding to believe 1 impossible thing today. And yet your much more than any action or doing you do. Your power lies in your creative choices. What you decide to be. What makes you passionate and excited about living your life! If you were a painter and had a blank canvas what would you paint in your life today?
YOU'RE BORN TO CREATE YOUR REALITYYou are an unique finger print of God. What can you do with you? What can you be that is to be revealed to you? Do you have an inkling? Do you feel the stirrings within that begin to hatch into that incredible master of your destiny that you are? Each day of your life you choose to be something. You choose to do something. You choose to feel something. Each day you exercise a choice you create your next new reality. Each time you choose this way instead of that way you move toward a different reality. Each time you make a choice you shape the path of your reality towards another destination. Is it where you want to go? Is towards your hearts desire? If it is not then it's just another choice. Its easy to know where to go you just feel it and your insides tell you which way to go. No magic involved just your inner guidance system providing you with maps of desires to head towards. You are a creative being that believes thing into existence. Just feel it as true. Know it as true.
The most creative thing in us is to believe a thing into objective existence. Can you believe that something is already objective to you, even though your mortal eyes cannot see it? Can you walk, drenched in the feeling that it is an objective fact, until it becomes so?These next few days start to notice when you nourish your imagination. Begin to find the ways to think a new reality into existence for yourself. You are a spiritual being having a human - physical experience. Your power doesn't lie within your physical world it lies within. The outside life is but a shadow of what you continue to imagine as true for you and your world. A reflection of your past history if you will. Dare yourself to change it and challenge your comfort zones so you can ultimately have more and more of what you want. It is in your very capable hands. Just begin with a small thing that you desire and move it up further and further so the bigger things are included in your imaginings! It will be fantastic to hear your stories. Let me know here if your willing to share. Thanks!
May you imagine better than the best you know and have an incredible life!
