Channeling Your Imagination

Thought for today:

Imagination is a wonderful tool. When channeled properly, it can inspire great innovation, spark the discovery of solutions to vexing problems, and improve life.

Imagination can also deconstruct, destroy what has been built, and cause troubles.  Just watch the news.  So it’s logical to say that imagination is not good or bad, it just is. It is only a tool.

A member shares:

“When I was debting, I would love to see the credit card advertisements and imagine I was driving that car or living in that villa.  I never imagined how to pay for it (I was a chronic under earner after all) but the credit card company had the answer – easy credit!

“Soon I was in debt beyond imagination, and the creditors turned off the money faucet.  All I was left with was dreams and bills.

“I began to feel terrified to open my mail or answer the phone because I had learned to expect a creditor’s nasty letter or a summons to appear in court to pay a debt.  So I stopped answering the mail and the phone.  So they started serving me papers at my front door.

“Out of desperation, I started working with the Twelve Steps and Twelve Tools of DA.  I looked forward to attending meetings because I could relate with everyone.  At one point they had a Vision Mapping meeting, and I put together pictures of a vacation in a beautiful climate.

“Later, when I took that vacation, I realized how my imagination was helping me transform my life.  The Visions I had dreamed up earlier were starting to come true!

“Today I know that my imagination can work for me or against me if I let it.  I choose the former!”

What we can imagine, we can become:

Imagination is a tool that exists at our pleasure.  Most of the things we fear will happen never do happen.  When we reinforce positive imagination (Visions), they are much more likely to come true.

We are in charge of our imagination, and it is powerful!


Have I gotten over my fear of what I imagine will happen in the future?  Am I willing to launch something awesome today?

Meditation for today:

Inspiration is the Higher Power’s way of fulfilling a deep need in us to create.  It takes courage to risk creation, but as we do, we express our best selves.

Everyone is given the power to create parts of the world around them.  Some turn away from that power, and others embrace it.  Enjoy using imagination for good purpose.
