The Power of Your Imagination

Do you ever spend any time just imagining?  How often do you close your eyes and see your life as you wish it would be?  The answer is probably never.  Or rarely.  Do you know how powerful your imagination really is?

Your imagination is a gift and it is there for a reason.  The reason is to create.  Think about it this way.  Writers use their imagination to come up with stories.  Artists use theirs to create paintings and sculptures.  All forms of art are created through the use of imagination.  It is the imagination which then brings forth the creation or manifestation of the thing imagined.

So, if artists and writers can create this way, why can't you?  Your imagination isn't there just to create art, it exists to create your life!

Think of yourself as the artist of your life and imagine into being what you want to see, hear, feel and experience.  You are a creator and your life is a canvas.  Your imagination is the best tool you have to create the life you want.

Spend some time imagining what you want.  See the picture of it, and place yourself there.  Don't see yourself there, rather be in the picture not an observer looking at the picture.

Before you go to sleep at night, take a few minutes to imagine what you really want.  Me?  I picture myself signing copies of my book as hundreds of people wait in line, and to each person who approaches me, I say "Thank you for buying my book."  It feels great.  In fact it physically moves me!  I feel my head start to gently  nod and a huge smile appears on my face.  This is my sign that it's working.

Let your imagination create your physical reality.  We as humans have so much more power than we think we do.  Try this every day, and imagine the possibilities!
