Abraham suggests that when we imagine something we imagine it as if it were real, in front of us. We also have a Gradius & Ragon session (can’t find the exact one so I’ll paraphrase) with an exercise that suggests you look at something right in front of you, say, a pencil on your desk. Get a feel for that pencil and it being solid, right there in front of you. “Real” Then apply that concrete, already existing, right in front of you feeling to whatever it is you want to create when you are imagining it.
If you’re trying to create something you have NOT yet experienced in your reality, imagine it first. Right. Ok. But if it’s something we haven’t experienced before, and can’t reach into your left-brain/rational memories for that feeling tone or vibe, the feeling tone or vibe must come from your imagination instead.And if it’s something that seems more than a few steps away from your usual vibe you may need to work at it a little more too.
Meaning, the imagining itself might actually take a little practice. Practice at getting the ‘feel’ right, which will be different from what we’re used to creating or even expecting, and also different for each of us. From my own experience, I’ve definitely had preconceived notions about how some desire would feel to me when I’d experience/create it finally, and I think the preconceived notions often got in the way of me connecting with the ‘true’ vibe or feeling tone of the desired creation itself when doing this imagining. Connecting with the ‘reality’ of it, as it were – LOL.
Here’s a sort of funny example that occurs to me. You know how EXCITED people are when they win, say, something like concert tickets on the radio? Most of the time they scream with joy and go nuts. Or at least, those are the only ones they play, so we might start assuming that’s how anyone would react. But what if you’re the type that would just say, “That’s wonderful – thank you so much!”. When you’d try to imagine yourself winning those concert tickets and screaming in joy it wouldn’t feel ‘right’ to you. You’d have to connect with how the experience would truly feel to YOU and ignore the expectation set by your past experiences/memories with listening to other people win on the radio.
And beyond just memory, there have certanly been times when I’ve felt my left-brain processes have interfered with my attempts to imagine. That is, when I had a belief that I couldn’t have something I wanted, the ‘can’t have’ thoughts would prevent me from connecting energetically with the feel/vibe of the desired creation. They would even prevent me from being able to spend much time with my imagination at all. Which, now that I’m thinking of it so specifically, makes perfect sense. Because I’d be holding onto the vibe of “CAN’T” so much that I couldn’t touch “YES” hardly at all. Even in my imagination. I can see where saying, “yes, that’s what you think, but I’m going to imagine it ANYWAY” would be one way around that block once you become aware of it.
So, having said all that, I’m off to spend some time in Imagination Practice! This should be fun – heh.
