Lining up Imagination with your Desire – Step 2

Dancing in Imagination
Watercolour by Beverly Blanchard
You have decided what it is you want.  You have put it in the affirmative, and you believe that whatever it is you can be or have it.  It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks, all that matters is what you think.  If you want to consciously create your life, your belief in the wish fulfilled is a necessary factor.  In this post, I will provide you with the starting point in gaining control over your imagination because unless you control your imaginal activities, your imagination is going to control you.

Your imagination is working 24/7 and for most people it is filled with negative inner dialogue.  According to the Law of Reflection and the Law of Projection, the people and situations you don’t like are usually arriving in your life as a result of the mental conversations you have with yourself every day.  What you are thinking at any point of time is creating your future, and it is this unconscious inner dialogue that is writing the script of your life.  Don’t like what is happening in your life then you must become aware of your internal conversations.

For sake of simplicity let me give you an analogy to assist you in understanding how your imagination works.  In this analogy, there are two beings.  There is the outer you and the inner you.  The outer you is based on your physical senses and defines itself by the so-called facts of reality.  I have only this much money in my bank account.  I weigh this amount.  I have this illness.  I see that tree.  I live in this house. I have this problem person in my life.

The inner you is based on spiritual sensation or feelings, and is your imagination.   It is not defined or confined by the facts.  It can transcend time and space.  It has the ways and means to achieve the desired result.  It does not distinguish between good or bad.  It takes its direction by what you are mentally feeding it. 

Your moods are the energy that drives your imagination.  Within your imagination there are various states of being.  For you to become or achieve what you desire you must occupy the desired state within your mind.  To find the feelings associated with the end-result you can start by asking yourself these questions:  What would the feeling be like if this idea was true?  What would I feel like if I was the person I want to be?  What would I see, hear, feel and sense?  You have to catch the feeling because the mood determines your success.  If you can imagine it within your mind it will materialize in the physical but you have to walk in the assumption of the wish fulfilled.

Do not ask how it is going to be done.  Do not ask when it is going to be done. Your inner being looks after that.  You must make a radical change in your state of mind and direct your inner dialogues to what you want to hear, feel and see.  As Einstein said, “Your imagination is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”

In the next posts, I will show you ways of working with your imagination.  In the meantime, enjoy a clip from Pixar's movie "The Incredibles".

Lining up Imagination with your Desire – Step One

Watercolour by Beverly Blanchard
What is it you want? Do you want more money? Do you want a better feeling body? Do you want a new job?  Do you want a relationship?  Do you want more customers for your business?  Whatever it is you want, you can have it.  There are no limits.  There are no judgments.  You do not have to plead a needy case.  You can be or do or have anything you want.  All you have to do is ask and then step into the state of being aligned with your request.

All states of being exist and are part of creation.  It is like a spider web or matrix.  Throughout your lifetime you either consciously or inadvertently fall into these states.  When we enter into these states we are compelled to act in accordance with these states.  Our thoughts and beliefs become congruent with the state of being.  To move yourself out of the state of being you are in (what is) and into a desired state (what you want) you must use your imagination.  
Now here is where most people give up because your mind will give you thousands of reasons as to why you can’t have what you want.  If you stay within the confines of the rational mind’s reasoning, your desire will remain only an idea.  You have to tune your vibrational frequency to the vibrational frequency of your desire. 
In the subsequent posts, I will give you information and techniques which can assist you in appropriating the desired state of being to match your desire.  The first step in aligning your imagination to your desire is defining what it is you want in your life.   
Step One – Define What You Want
What do you want? It is a very simple question but there are a lot of people who just can’t seem to answer it.  There are those who are intent on complaining about reality and have never given it thought as to what they want in place of what they are complaining about.  There are others who are very good at framing their answer in terms of what they don’t want... ‘I don’t want to be sick anymore.’  ‘I don’t want to be unemployed.’ ‘I don’t want to worry about money anymore.’  The more you focus on what you don’t want, the more you get of it.  It is the way Universe works.  To get what you want you have to be forward thinking and your request must be in the affirmative because the words you use matter.
It is also necessary to stop focusing on the reality of what currently is happening in your life.  You cannot focus on what is and expect to change your life.  You have to turn in the direction of what it is your want.  All change starts with your desire.  So what is that you want in your life?

The Dreamer is within You

Dreaming in Paradise
Watercolour by Beverly Blanchard
Man is all Imagination and God is Man and exists in us and we in him. The eternal body of Man is the Imagination and that is God Himself.”-- William Blake (1757-1827)

Throughout the course of history, there have been many prophets, seers and enlightened beings who have told us in various ways that the source of our power is within.  Yet, for some reason we have continually accepted stories which places Spirit/God outside ourselves. 

When you came into this world, you knew who you were.  Unfortunately you didn’t have the experience and wisdom to articulate it.  As time went on you forgot and began accepting what the authorities in your life told you to believe.  It is these beliefs that have taken you away from your true infinite power.  Many of these beliefs have locked you into a pattern or state of being that is not in your highest interest.
As explained in the Law of One, there is no separation.  Spirit resides within you and is entombed within your skull.  Spirit dreams within you and it is waiting for you to awaken to the realization that you and God are one.  The dream is within you.  You do not need an intermediary to connect to the divine presence.  We are all spiritual beings manifested in human form operating from the same Source Energy.  We are each a fragment of Source Energy.

It was Shakespeare who said, “All the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances…and each man in his time plays many parts.”  The man playing many parts is Spirit.  God is the dreamer, dreaming all parts into existence.  You are the author of the story.  Through your thoughts, perceptions, beliefs and feelings you are continually writing the screenplay.  Everyone who appears in your world comes to you through your invitation and is Spirit in human form playing that part you created.
Your life is really like a movie.  You are the author and main actor.  Spirit is the producer who looks after all phases of the movie. He makes it happen.  The nagging mind is the director who is continually telling you that you haven’t mastered the role.  The people and experiences coming into your life are the cast and crew.  All brought together because of the story you wrote.

If you are dissatisfied with the play, it is up to you to rewrite the script to make it conform to your idea of what the play should be. You cannot demand that the actors in your play change their role in your life.  You can however with Spirit’s assistance change your movie because all changes must take place in the mind of the author.  Everything is an outsourcing of your mind’s imagination and it is only through our consensus that we are dreaming in concert.
To change your script you have to know: What Story Are You Telling?  Spirit makes no judgment on whatever story you create.  We are in the world of duality or some say the land of the shadows.  Spirit just lines up the vibrations to match the story you are writing and telling.  All the good, the bad and the ugly experiences in your life, are matched perfectly to the dominant theme in your script.

Next post I will show you how to line up with Source to access your inherent power because Spirit is your imagination.  In the meantime, here is a short clip from philosopher Alan Watts.
