Take a moment if you would, to IMAGINE your greatest greatness; the grandest version of yourself that your mind can conjure. Imagine what that would look like and feel like to you. The sense of pride and accomplishment you’d have. The joy and peace you’d exude… What would be different? What would be the same? Close your eyes and BE for just a moment that ultimate version of you. Where would you be? What would you do? Imagine in the most intricate detail every aspect of this amazing ideal. What do you see, smell, hear, and feel? Immerse yourself in this little mind game until you are so overcome with the realness of the feeling that you realize this imagined person actually is you.
Imagination is the most infinitely powerful untapped resource on the planet. Look at what it has created! EVERYTHING. Every life altering invention was once only an idea in someone’s imagination; and someone had to have the power to dream it into existence. This is the power behind the age old clichés “never give up on your dreams”, and “dare to dream”, etc... Dreams, and beliefs are incredibly powerful, they influence our reality in a way we haven’t even begun to comprehend.
Holding to a belief will literally create one’s experience. Sometimes a realm of endless possibilities is created and other times holding to a belief can limit the believer’s scope of possibility. Belief about something solidifies it and makes it what it is. If we believe that things just are the way they are and cannot be changed, that is the experience we will have. If however, we see life as a series of endless opportunities and believe in the prospect of change, the possibilities are infinite.
Imagine the world how you’d like it to be. Fill your thoughts with feelings that make you glad to be alive. Feed that energy with more and more feelings of gratitude and ideas of grandeur. Practice the art of make believe until you have brought these wondrous ideas about yourself and our world into existence. If nothing else this will give you something beautiful and amazing to ponder, and maybe even bring a smile to your face. J The mind can’t tell the difference between a real emotion and an imagined one. So imagine yourself happy, imagine yourself joyful, exuberant, lighthearted, and free!
