Imagining a Beautiful Life. Learning how to use imagination is the “key”. When you imagine a beautiful life, what does it look like?
How have you set your intention to get there? How will you overcome both the internal and external obstacles in the way? Who can help you get there? In other words, what are your resources?
Imagining a Beautiful Life
“The imagination is where we create ideas. Intention gives ideas direction and force. Determination brings ideas created into manifestation.” ― Guru Tua
Engaging the power of your imagination is the key. It’s the shaping force of your world. After all, every invention of our modern is the result of someone using imagination to create something new. When we add determination (intent) to imagination the results are life changing. We are motivated to positive actions that support our goal. And, as a bonus, we also receive support in unexpected ways from unexpected sources. Our intent is the second key. Our intent is the ingredient that provides the energy for the picture of your beautiful life.
“Intent is not a thought, or an object, or a wish. Intent is what can make a man succeed when his thoughts tell him that he is defeated. It operates in spite of the warrior’s indulgence. Intent is what makes him invulnerable. Intent is what sends a shaman through a wall, through space, to infinity.” ― Carlos Castaneda
Using Imagination to Create
1) Start with the Goal
Above all, start with the main object of your intent, imagine Life is beautiful. Let your heart, your imagination give you a picture of what a beautiful life means to you.
2) Assess the Gap
Next, assess where you are now. What is the difference between the picture of your beautiful life and where you are now?
3) Plan the road to the Goal
Determine the steps to get from where you are now, to the place where you “imagine Life is beautiful”.
4) Set Your Intention
Set your intent with affirmations and reminders to bring the picture of your beautiful life into your awareness.
5) Do what you can. Allow the Universe to Guide
Send out positive vibrations and thank the Universe or your Higher Power for each manifestation of your dream. Be watchful. The universe will send opportunities and steps in ways you may not expect.
6) Work the plan
Repeat the above steps until you reach the goal. Using imagination gives your intent a purpose.
If the picture of your beautiful changes, that’s okay. You haven’t wasted any time or energy. Using this process exercises the power of your intent and imagination. They both gain strength just like any muscle. The other thing you need to be aware of is the interference of negative self-talk. We highly recommend the use of The Enneagram of Personality to identify these issues.
Using imagination is essential to creating a better future. Stay with it. Use persistence and patience. The results are on the way.
