The Human Imagination
“All things exist in the human imagination. Everything you see as an objective reality, was produced by imagining. “
We use creative visualisation to make our dreams a reality. Visualisation is the process of creating a scene on the screen of your mind through use of your creative imagination. It is defined as to form a mental picture or images to persuade the mind.
This process can be used to successfully reach your goals whether it is to pass a test, receive money or to learn a specific skill. In creative visualisation, you direct your brain to focus on what matters the most to you. And to engage in a process called selective attention.
How do we put this into practice?
1. Have an Objective (GOAL)
What you focus on and take deliberate steps toward are more likely to become a reality. If you don’t know what you want, you cannot direct your brain to focus on what matters the most for you and consequently you are unable to select your attention.
The important fact here is that, when you do not consciously direct your brain to focus on what matters for you, the creative process does not simply stop – the creative process continues all the time – and it will produce random results. Earli Nightingale says that success is a two-edged sword:
“You see, the very law that gives us success is a two-edged sword. We must control our thinking. The same rule that can lead a man to a life of success, wealth, happiness, and all the things he ever dreamed of for himself and his family, that very same law can lead him into the gutter. It’s all in how he uses it, for good or for bad. That is The Strangest Secret in The World .“
Setting your life goals is one of the most life-changing thing you can do. During the process of goal setting you have to come clear to answer one of the most profound question: what do I want from my life?
Many are still underestimating the positive effect that goal setting can have. The simple reason for this is more often than not that they haven’t experienced first hand how it feels to define clearly what really drives them.
If done right, goal setting can easily motivate you to take massive action and to grow as a human being.
A goal is a future achievement with a timely deadline you can work towards to. We can also define a goal as a thought with commitment to make it real.
A compelling goal is something that has a deeper meaning to you. It is the kind of goal that excites you, that lets you grow and the achievement is fulfilling and rewarding.
Questions you can ask are:
– Are my goals based in loving, life-enriching intentions?
– Will my goals help to improve my life and others?
– Do my goals match my life purpose?
Our inner state of being creates our reality in this world, and therefore lays the foundation for a life in which we thrive. In order to achieve a goal you need a clear and strong intention, focused on your goal.
The first hours of the day, when you first wake up affect your mindset and productivity, hence setting the tone for the rest of the day. If you would like to start each day in the best way possible, consider implementing some of these proven morning routines into your morning schedule.
Neville says “All that you behold though it appears without, it is within your imagination of which this world of mortality, is but a shadow”.
The world of imagination is infinite and eternal, whether the world of generation is finite and temporary. Everything lives within you.
Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich (1937), said:
“Anything the mind of man can conceive and believe it can be achieved.”
“Any definite chief aim that is deliberately fixed in the mind and held there, with the determination to realize it, finally saturates the entire subconscious mind until it automatically influences the physical action of the body toward the attainment of that purpose”.
Without purpose, Hill believes people often spread their thoughts and energies in so many different directions that “lead not to power, but to indecision and weakness.”
2. Leave it alone and it will come to pass
Neville says that “Whatever You Believe In And Persist In Will Come To Pass“, which means that we do not have to worry about how it will happen, we do not have to be concerned about the mechanics of how the Universe will bring forward what we have been focusing our attention on.
Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality. “Do not concern yourself too much with how you are going to achieve your goal – leave that completely to a Power greater than yourself. All you have to do is knowing where you are going. The answers will come to you on their own accord.” – Earl Nightingale
3. Go to the End
Go to the end and feel the end, even though senses deny it and reason deny it. You walk as if things were as you wanted them to be. Living in that assumption slowly hardens into fact, even if at the moment of the assumption was denied by reason.
How do you do it?
1. Assume the feeling of the wish fulfilled: before taking any action, know that you do already have what you imagined.
2. Rest in the state ‘It Is Done‘.
When you assume the feeling of a wish fulfilled, you are imagining the feeling of how it would feel if you already had the things that you desire. You can do this simply by asking yourself the question, “how would I feel if I already had it?”
Once you have a clear visualisation of what you are striving for, you can then bring all of your attention towards envisioning that for yourself; focusing only on your highest expectations instead of the “how” it will happen, thus allowing the process of manifestation to unfold on its own.
