“Everything you can imagine is real.”
– Pablo Picasso
When I read this quote I am reminded how true this is for me. Whatever you imagine, be it something marvelous or disastrous… is real to your mind.
IDEA: To strengthen your creative muscle, see what want for a few moments every day. Your goals, dreams. Do this for 15-30 seconds. This simple action begins to build muscle memory in the mind. What the mind sees believes it is real.
Better than the picture, really feel yourself there. Any smells? What colors are there? Is anyone else there? Is there any sounds? Can you feel the air move, the ground beneath your feet? This is more than a simple visualization. When we give it dimension and sensory, it takes on a whole new level of success! Try this practice for a month, 15-30 seconds a day. Notice as people and coincidences come into your life…You are learning to create a path for the law of attraction to enter!
As you practice this in short moments as often as you can during the next month, pay some attention to how it is working. (If you would like, drop me a line or two of what is going on!)
Practice training your mind in the art of focused imagination.
Create a completely new world of infinite possibilities for yourself and others!
Again, little steps.
For myself personally, I am in the final weeks of becoming certified in a unique form of creativity coaching. I love the idea that everyone has creativity flowing through his or her systems. It is not always in the form of writing, artwork or music. We can all get overwhelmed, procrastinate and shutdown for different reasons (more later).
Through many of the assignments, I have re-discovered many writers, speakers and practices that I either have utilized before or are new and exciting to me now.
One of the tools that has become a more constant companion is the mind sculpting I mention earlier. Once again, I see how powerful and significant honing this skill plays in creating my life. Just remember to pay attention to where your attention is!
Try it! Again or anew for you, mind sculpting is a great tool to bring into your life!
“Winners, I am convinced, imagine their dreams first. They want it with all their heart and expect it to come true. There is, I believe, no other way to live.”
