Imagination, Our Gift From and To the Infinite
“Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.” ~Jamie Paolinetti
- You Are a Beautiful Being of Love!
Do you know that you are a beautiful being of love? There are a growing number of beautiful souls that are constantly reminding us of this extraordinary truth. The beauty that we recognize in another is a reflection of the beauty within us.
It was no accident when Albert Einstein, one of the brightest minds of the 20th century, stated that “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” The reason why this is so, is because knowledge is limited to what we currently know. However, when we utilize our imagination we open the doorways to the Infinite. We are no longer limited to what we have learned from school and society.
Our imagination allows us to tap into Universal Knowledge.
The great psychologist, Carl Jung, from the 20th century spoke of a Collective Consciousness. It is no accident that people come up with ideas at the same time across the globe. There have been countless inventions and discoveries made at the same time. In David Wilcock’s book “The Source Field Investigations,” he makes several references to this phenomenon (68-70, 84). As a writer of poetry and songs, I have come across words and phrases in other people’s songs that were worded similar, if not exactly, to what I wrote years earlier. Now, that you are aware of the fact that imagination is more important than knowledge. I would now like to share how it’s a gift from God.
We are told in many spiritual traditions that we were created in the image of God. This is true. We are also told that God is a Creator. This also is true.
But are you aware of the fact that we are all Creators as well?
Our every thought is creating our reality. Our emotion is what gives the thought its power. If you have been doing your “spiritual homework,” you will remember that many spiritual teachers will often tell you to guard your thoughts and emotions; for you will draw to you what you predominantly think about. Over time, negative thoughts will not only attract negative people and circumstances into your life, but they will also have a negative effect on your body.
Negative thoughts are low in vibration and will cause damage to your body over time. Certain emotions target certain organs in the body. For example, anger is harmful to the liver. This is a very important organ for detoxification. On the other hand, positive thoughts and emotions are good for the body. They also attract positive people and circumstances into our life. And with the power of our imagination, we can transcend our circumstances and bring about personal healing, as well as worldwide healing. Check out John Lennon’s words:
“Imagine all the people living life in peace.”
In hypnotherapy, the client is encouraged to use their imagination to accomplish their goals. In the film “The Secret,” Denis Waitley discussed “Visual Motor Rehearsal” in which athletes used their mind to imagine performing certain acts, such as running a race in their minds. What they discovered is that the same neurons fired in the brain whether the athletes were pretending or actually performing the act. This is living proof that our imaginations can make quantum jumps. Quantum physics is the science of possibilities in which our consciousness is the engine that is driving our reality.
“Energy flows where our attention goes.”
In the last part of this article, I would like to share some song lyrics that invite us to use our imaginations. Check out the inspiring lyrics to Jack Johnson’s song “Upside Down” that was featured in the film “Curious George”:
"Upside Down" - Jack Johnson
“Who’s to say what’s impossible
Well they forgot…
And as my mind begins to spread its wings
There’s no stopping curiosity
I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I’ll find the things they say just can’t be found
I’ll share this love I find with everyone
We’ll sing and dance to Mother Nature’s songs
I don’t want this feeling to go away”
Now, check out these powerful lyrics from the song “Pure Imagination” that was featured in the film “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”:
"Pure Imagination" Sung by Gene Wilder
“Traveling in the world of my creation
What we’ll see will defy explanation
If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Want to change the world?
There is nothing to it
There is no life I know
to compare with Pure Imagination
Living there you’ll be free,
if you truly wish to be"
Now, let’s take a ride on the “Dream Weaver” train:
"Dream Weaver" - Gary Wright
“I’ve closed my eyes again
Climbed aboard the dream weaver train
Driver take away my worries of today
And leave tomorrow behind
Oh, dream weaver
I believe you can get me through the night
Oh, dream weaver
I believe we can reach the morning light
Fly me high through the starry skies
Maybe to an astral plain
Cross the highways of fantasy
Help me to forget today’s pain”
I would now like to share “Dream Operator.” These are song lyrics by the group Talking Heads:
"Dream Operator" - Talking Heads
“Every dream has a name
And names tell your story
This song is your dream
You’re the dream operator...
And every dream tells it all
And this dream is your story
You dreamed me a heart
You’re the dream operator...
And, you, dreamed it all
And, this, is your story
Do you know who you are?
You’re the dream operator”
In closing, I would like to leave you with some song lyrics I wrote:
"Intutition" - Terry Fatland
'Cause I’m lost in your eyes
'Cause I'm lost in your eyes”
There’s stars in your eyes
And there’s dreams in your mind
Your heart is your guide to what is true
And should you want to know
We don’t want to know
We can see the love in your eyes”
I now invite you to create the world of your dreams. You are the Dream Maker.
Peace, Love, and Light
