The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless.
Many of us have been directed away from consciously using our imagination. We have been told that imagination is nothing more than fantasy and has no place in our real world. We have been taught that imagination is only for those in the creative fields or children. Yet, your imagination is always operating. You are utilizing the faculty of imagination on a continual basis to explore and create situations and experiences. Within your imagination everything is possible, and there are no limits.
If you employ your imagination consciously it can become your greatest collaborator. It can allow you to move the mind from ‘what is’ so that you can create ‘what is wanted’. Taking conscious control of your imagination involves shifting your focus from reality, and allowing your mind to live within the creative power of the dream. In other words, you occupy the dream as if it was already fulfilled.
Imagination is not wishful thinking. Wishful thinking is a function of the mind in which you are thinking about something but not in it. Recalling past memories is not imagination; although you can use past memories to embody the imaginative senses in your dream.
In order for your dream to become reality in your life, it must first be created within in your imagination. To do this, you begin by removing your awareness from your current reality and place yourself in the reality of what you want. In the mind’s eye, you begin picture the experience as you want it to be. You hear it what you what to hear. You add all the senses to what you are imagining and you step into the movie. The more you occupy the mind’s movie in its totality, the more likely you are to manifest it on the physical plane.
