My Thoughts about “Imagination”
I know, I know, it’s been a while since I put up a blog post. Shame on me. However, right now I would like to share my thoughts on “Imagination”. What is the “Imagination”? According to dictionary.com the definition is:
“The faculty of imagining, or of forming mental images or concepts of what is not actually present to the senses.”
Now I don’t know about you, but doesn’t this sound like the definition of being “open”? Understand, when I say “Open”, I mean open to Spirit Divine. Please before I lose you, allow me to explain.
When we were children, or any child for that matter, people say “Oh, they have such an imagination.” You see kids having “imaginary friends”, they could see shadows, etc., who is to say that it’s their imagination? I believe that children do not have an Imagination. I believe that they are more open to spirit than adults. When they pass the age to be held accountable for their actions and puberty starts, the ego starts to take hold. This is when we start to close off to spirit. We enter into young adulthood and often times the individual closes off to spirit. Hint: why people say they lost their “Imagination”. When in my opinion they did not lose their imagination. They instead closed off their connection to Spirit, whether on purpose or not. We are Spiritual beings, here for our souls to learn lessons while in a human body. With the human body comes the ego and emotions. We have to learn how to navigate our human experience with the emotions and ego intact.
Now how does one reconnect to Spirit after being so closed off and navigate the ego? Well with practice and changing your way of thinking or prospective, you can open back up to Spirit and find that connection again. In order to do so, one would have to find out how to become mindful. One will have to learn how to push the ego aside, learning to trust one’s self and the information they are getting or experiencing.
This can happen in numerous ways such as clairvoyance, clairaudience and clairsentience (just to name a few.) When getting information as crazy as it may seem to you (and you might feel like you’re making it up in your “imagination”) it just might make total sense to someone around you and be just what they need to hear. One of my teachers always says “First thought is Spirit, second thought is ego.” This means that since we are spiritual beings, our first thought is us connecting to spirit or what some may call our “Imagination”. Then as we think about the thought more, we start to analyze the thought or feeling being our ego trying to figure it out and how it makes sense, leading to us brushing or wiping the thought from our mind completely.
Another way one could open up to spirit and be mindful is to meditate. There are plenty of free apps you can download for mediation. I know YouTube has some nice guided meditations but ultimately you have to choose what resonates with you. It could be just mediation music, a sound track of a stream gently flowing, or maybe you need help and like to be guided through meditations.
The key is to trust yourself. Yes, you might feel like it’s your “Imagination” running wild, but is it? Or are you starting to realize that imagination doesn’t exist, it is just a matter of being open to Spirit.
