Wealth- it begins in the imagination

Imagination is more important than knowledge”  Albert Einstein.

I had dropped in to visit a friend one Saturday afternoon and as we were talking about the usual things like our families, work, and so  had asked him if he had remembered to play the 15 million lottery for that evening as I knew he’d never miss out on doing. 

He answered “No, are you kidding?  What on earth would I do with 15 million dollars? I just couldn’t imagine having that much money”.  He opted not to play the lottery that evening because the pool prize of 15 million dollars was more than he could imagine having.  It was just simply unthinkable!

It was at that precise moment I had an epiphany about wealth, our imagination and the law of attraction!

What exactly is imagination?  Imagination is the ability to form mental images or visualise what has clearly not arrived in the physical plane yet!   Our imagination ( using visualisation) is integral in attracting what we want into our lives. 

We attract that which we can mentally accept.  This is why practical goal setting is so important for beginners.  Starting with realistic goals – ones that we can mentally accept is very important.  It would be futile to start off with goals that we could not imagine possible or would not seem achievable – to you.

For example:

It would be far easier to accept that in 12 months time you could be earning twice the income you are earning now.  This to the mind seems a far more realistic  goal than imagining you will be an instant millionaire  overnight.  That is more wishful thinking and given that we usually back wishful thinking with negative emotions such as disbelief, this would not be possible.

However this does not mean it is not possible.  But if you can’t imagine it so, then it will not be so!

Creation began in the imagination.  It was first conceived in the mind.  And as with anything in our lives that we create it all begins in our minds, in our imaginations before it manifests in our 3D world.

We only needs to look at our inventors,or read their life stories to discover that they all had a common denominator – and that is that they concieved their inventions in their imagination first!  They had seen in their minds eye, the very object of their desire, even before they could crystallize it into a real tangible object!

If something existed in one’s imagination, in ones mind then it was just a matter of time before it became real.  For the universal law of creation works like this:  all you need to do is hold the mental image  in your mind for long enough  until it becomes your reality.

Without the imaginations of our inventors  who held in their minds the pictures or ideas of what they wanted to create, as well as their burning desire to succeed and not accept defeat, no matter how many times they seemed to ‘fail’,we would not have the commodities, conveniences, comforts, technology and lifestyle we have today.

In our imagination resides the seeds of our wildest dreams, hopes and aspirations.  the seeds of our future reality.  We draw unto us that which we hold in our minds – the law of attraction.  We mould our reality based on our thoughts.  Our outer experiences are always created in our imagination first!

As children we used our imagination to conjure up anything we wanted.  And didn’t seem so easy then?  As children we did not see the barriers – not that there are any, but as we grew we were conditioned to believe otherwise.

Our imagination is by far the most valuable tool that we have at our disposal.  It is by this process we create our reality – that which we want to see realized in our lives.

  1. Law of Attraction.. fascinates me and you write so beautifully about it..

    Quite unrelated to your article, but closely related.. I’m going to quote something here that someone wrote recently.. and for me it is very symbolic.. would love to see your thoughts on it – perhaps in another article? This is a quote and I am quoting verbatim.. to respect the privacy of the person who wrote it I am not going to publish his name.. it can be viewed on his website however.

    “”I was sitting at my desk today thinking, as I often do, about passion. What is passion? How do you define it? Rationalize it? What does it really mean? I wondered what causes passion and desire. How can just the mere sight of words, electronically transmitted by someone who you may very well never meet f2f, create a stirring deep within the heart and mind that’s a sensation so strong that the bonds of friendship you’ve nurtured over time seem to pale by way of comparison?””
