Many great sages and teachers tell us we can make a beautiful life. They say it’s a matter of learning how to use our imagination correctly. Here’s how to do it.
When you imagine a beautiful life, how do you picture it? 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? What are your resources?
Make Your Life Beautiful
“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 results from someone using imagination to create. When we add determination and intent, the results are life-changing.
We are motivated by positive actions that support our goals. 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 making life beautiful.
“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
Start with the primary object of your intent. Imagine Life is beautiful. Get your heart and imagination involved. Create a picture of what you want your life to be. Fill this image with sounds and smells. Make it as vivid as possible.
Keeping the goal in your awareness on a day-to-day basis is preferred. The way you do this is to write it down where you will see it. It’s helpful to write down the details of this word picture. Creating a vision board is also highly recommended. Some people like to use the desktop of their computer, and others use a bulletin board to paste pictures of their goal.
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? Break your ultimate goal into smaller steps.
3) Plan the road to the Goal
Determine the steps to get from where you are now to the place where you “imagine your Life beautiful.”
Don’t get discouraged if the path to your goal takes you on a detour. The route to your destination is often not a straight line. You may need to take a step backward to move forward.
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, then 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 Your Plan
Repeat the above steps until you reach the goal. Using imagination gives your intent a purpose. Use the law of attraction thought scripts to solidify your plan.
If the picture of your beautiful changes, that’s okay. You have wasted no time or energy. Using this process exercises the power of your intent and imagination. They both gain strength, just like any muscle. Be aware of is the interference of any negative self-talk. We highly recommend using The Enneagram of Personality to identify these issues.
Using imagination is essential to creating a better future. To make life beautiful, you need to be persistent and patient. The results are on the way.
