Your Imagination is Powerful… Use It Wisely!

Your Imagination is Powerful… Use It Wisely!

Several years ago, I was training employees at a healthcare facility when one nurse asked to see me during lunch. “I don’t know why I feel so strongly about showing these photos to you but I feel you need to see these. They are photos of my trip to Claude Monet’s home and my visit to Paris, France. She described each photo in detail and told me what to enjoy while I was visiting there. One day you’ll be in Europe and you’ll want to do all these things while you’re there.”

Shortly after my encounter with the nurse, I purchased a poster for my home of the path at Claude Monet’s home in Giverny, France. The beauty of the flowers, the vast countryside and the feeling of peace would touch me each time I would pass by the poster. In May of 2000, I was at Monet’s Garden walking on the same path and all of a sudden I felt the memory of the many times I had passed the poster which had become reality. I also recalled the conversations with the nurse and remembered so many of the photos she showed me of Paris. My vision had become reality. The positive imagery and the consistent affirmations had brought me to the real experience. As we say in Unity, “Thoughts held in mind produce their own kind.”

As stated by Stretton Smith, “One aspect of the ignition switch that converts the God energy within you into whatever it is that you desire is imagination.”

When you see it, it is. When you see it changed, it is changed. This is your faith faculty at work. Imagination is one of the most important mind powers that you can use to construct the world in which you want to live. The more vivid your imagination, the easier it is for you to believe.

You determine the form and the content of this kind of imagination. You can deliberately will a new idea out of your own conscious mind. Alice in Lewis Carroll’s book, Alice in Wonderland, told the Queen,” One can’t believe impossible things.” But the Queen responded, “I dare say you haven’t had much practice. Why sometimes, I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

A New Place of Deeper Living

As long as we believe the cross is rugged, we will never outgrow the splinters that come with it. We will never learn to go with the “natural grain” of life—a cross of empowerment rather than a cross of deep, wounded rejection and disconnection. Dolly Parton was once quoted as saying, “Get down off the…
