Hold on to your hat, you are about to take an incredible ride!!
If used properly, imagination is one of the greatest tools that
you can use. In your imagination, anything is possible and there
is absolutely nothing that cannot be imagined. The fantasy book
authors, who have spent hours in fantasy places, creating every
detail and every aspect, have imagined some of the greatest and
wildest places in fiction.
All kinds of characters, people, and creatures have been created
to inhabit these fictional places. Whole kingdoms and whole planets
have been invented for you to explore. Movies, plays, books, television
shows, media events, stage shows, theme parks, dvds, audio cassettes,
board games, electronic games, puzzles, toys, and sometimes a combination
of several of these have all been vividly imagined and created in
every detail. When you enter into these kingdoms through the authorï¿½s
guidance, you also explore them through your imagination, so that
no two experiences are exactly alike.
You can use your imagination for great adventures, great encounters,
fantastic stories, love stories, poetry, building a special house
or special property, designing or inventing something that has never
been done before, or making something that already exists even better.
From the tiniest piece of intricate machinery, to the most colossal
awesome machine, it was first imagined in someoneï¿½s mind. She or
he believed in that vision enough to figure out how to make it a
reality and then she or he worked diligently until her or his imagination
was taking place in the earthly realm.
Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, and electricity. Alexander
Graham Bell invented the telephone. Charles Drew found a way to
preserve and store blood, and he created the worldï¿½s first blood
bank. Frederick McKinley Jones invented a way to add sound to movies,
which revolutionized the movie industry; he also created cooling
units for trucks and trains to keep food cool in transportation.
All through their own imagination and work that went on before them.
They imagined something in their minds first and they worked
diligently to bring that imagination into the physical realm. They
were not deterred because it didnï¿½t work the first or second or
even third time; the whole process, or the end product, was pictured
very clearly in their minds. Harry Potter was a character invented
and nurtured in one womanï¿½s mind, now she has written several books
about him and there have been several movies created about that
one character and all his adventures.
Imagination lets you fly above the trees and soar out over the
water. It allows you to go further than is possible or ever dreamed
of before. You can talk with kings and queens, you can go into the
past or the future, you can speak in foreign languages, or you can
invent a language. You can create brand new colors, you can go to
another planet, or down under the water. Your imagination can be
bright, big, dark or foreboding. Where there is light there is dark,
where there is up there is down, male and female, good and evil.
Everything has a dimension and substance in your imagination.
Try it yourself and see where it takes you. Allow yourself a
rich and active imagination. But donï¿½t get stuck in the fearsome
side of your imagination; if you created it in your mind you can
un-create it too, and you can create good and positive protectors
in your mind to take care of you. You can create a new picture in
your mind to replace a piece of imagination that may have scared
you. You can change the focus and change the outcome all with a
thought. You donï¿½t have to settle for the same thing in your mind
all the time; you can change your thoughts at any time. You can
create the life that you imagine, right now, with your thoughts
and actions. Every new thought can progress you towards your dreams.
The world is wide open for you. Just imagine what you can do,
where you can go, who you can meet, and then enjoy the journey.
