Most people underestimate the power of the imagination. The problem lies with the word. Imagine-ation. Imagine equals ‘not real’! Day dreaming is another word with a poor reputation. Oh – I was ONLY daydreaming. It also contains the word ‘dreaming’ which describes things not real that can only be ‘dreamed about’ – the insubstantial and unattainable.
That is, until you look at life from the quantum point of view. The fact that we are a vibrating mass of particles. Particle Physicists agree that what we think of as the Universe is 99.9999999% empty space.
This puts things in a different light. If we’re not solid and our bodies are not solid, then that sheds a different light on what our thoughts are made of. Presumably the same material – and the same goes for our dreams.
You know you can easily obtain a ‘material’ thing, such as a tin of beans from a shop. But if you realise the tin of beans is not a material object but a non-material one, that puts it on the same plane as a dream home, a dream job, a dream anything. Now you’ve levelled the playing field a bit!
In terms of ‘how’ you go about attaining those things, the Law of Attraction goes a long way to explaining what to do. If you want to read more about it, I recommend ‘Ask and it is Given’ by Esther and Jerry Hicks, or if you haven’t got time to read a whole book right now, try ‘Manifest your Desires’ by the same authors which serves up the formula to you in illustrated bite size chunks that you can dip in and out of, or just read through, a few pages a day.
Your imagination isn’t just about the power to visualise it is also about flexibility; the ability to imagine or conceive new ideas, new routes forward, new ways of being.
So it’s okay to daydream. It doesn’t have to be ‘wasted time’, it can be productive! Your mind has so much more power than you think.
Mind over matter is a real thing, and it matters how you use it, so start focusing your mind on the things you want, rather than the things you don’t – and see what happens!
