Imagination is the unreal, real state of mind, where all things are experienced as real. Imagination is powerful and is an intermediate step between thought and word. Thoughts are experienced in the imagination before they are manifested into physical reality.
As important as this step is in the process of creating, it is the least explored on a conscious level. It is the easiest step to move from our conscious state and can be accessed at will. Just close your eyes and start imagining. From our earliness awareness, our parents both encourage and discourage us from being in this creative condition, because they know how powerful it is. Powerful imaginations can be intoxicating.
We are often told that we are imagining things. This statement is so close to the absolute truth. What we create, all the circumstances of our life, is being imagined. There is nothing else that we could be doing.
All that we seek to be, or have, will first be developed in our imagination. Mankind does not yet fully understand the value of the imagination. Yet those that have an awareness of it's function, us it successfully. There have never been truer statements than, "you're only limited by your imagination," "imagine it," let your imagination run wild. It truly is the creative state.
Sometimes distinctions between what are real and what is imagination is blurred, because imagination is so close to our conscious reality. All things in imagination are experienced in the state as real. The imagination can also be manipulated from the conscious state. It is more like a waking dream, that that is fully interactive.
Imagination is a safe zone, a holodeck, which we enter for all kinds of reasons, it's practical and recreational. It is a tool that works on demand and has unlimited resources. It's a perfect testing ground were problems can be worked out and we can create anything that we can imagine. We build models in our imagination in preparation for creation into the physical realm. All of our thoughts can be explored and examined. Working through imagination is the best way to experience having or doing a thing before it is made manifest.
The fastest way to get what you desire is to know that you already have it. Imagination facilitates, that knowingness, because you actually experience it in this dream like state, and adjustments can be made to customize the results.
Try this. Picture a brand new car in your mind. What ever color it is now, change the color. Change the car from 4 doors to 2. Imagine it with different wheels, four shiny chrome wheels. Notice how easily it is to change the image. Now imagine sitting in the driver's seat. Notice the dash and all the instrumentation, and then become aware of your friends in the car and who they are.
These are powerful images, and they are experienced as reality at the time. The more you dwell on them, the more likely you will manifest your vision into actuality.
You can experience your imagination, without restriction from old belief systems, guilt, morality, punishment, conviction, justification or anything else. It's your safe haven, where no one can enter. It is truly the only place that you can be alone with your thoughts. Imagine that! You are free from physical bonds or limitations. You can fly for as long and as high as you want. You can crash, burn, barn storm, or land safely, without fear.
The imagination is real and very compelling, it can be addicting, but always it is a safe place to be. We often choose only to experience very private matters in our imagination and choose not to make them fully manifest. Moving into the realm of the imagination is not to be scared, but anticipated with awe and wild abandonment. Fear not the power you possess. Develop your imagination, exercise it, and use it effectively to manifest the physical things that you desire in your life. Imagine the life that your really want and begin to live it.
In your spare moments each day, take some time to visit your imagination and envision what you desire that day and the next. Repeat those visions and they will become your new reality.
