Oscar plonks himself down in front of the telly, or right next to me if I'm painting and just stares... and stares... and stares. I swear I can feel his gaze burning into the back of my head. He has the focus of an elite athlete and I swear once hes decided he will NOT budge until I take him out for his walk. To be honest I don't mind ( most of the time ). My wanders with Oscar are a great time for me to catch up on my day dreaming. It's the same as when I do cardio. I put my head phones in and off I go into a little dream world. Sometimes if I'm walking through the parks I like a listen to the trees but mainly I am “off planet” or as my mum says “in my bubble “. Imagination is one of the most powerful gifts we have as spirits inhabiting bodies. It is a direct link to the potential of your being. Ok so I know that most of the stuff that us day dreamers actually day dream about will never really happen but the energetic equivalent of them can. Yes, we all know that what we focus on we draw to us. Sometimes that works in a very literal sense and sometimes we attract what's on a level with that. It depends on how you use it really. To it's equivalent or better, that's how it's always worked for me.
Sometimes the imagination is used for escape, to visualise or to explore the parts of our mind that we somehow feel are off limits to our physical lives. I encourage you to use it for whatever you feel you need it for at the time but I also encourage you to be aware of it too. If you are spending hour after hour running over the shoulda, coulda, woulda's with your ex then you are calling out for their energy or something similar to it. I'm not saying if you spend half an hour thinking about them then expect a call but what I am saying is that we live in an attraction based Universe and that which is like unto itself is drawn. One of the many things I love about day dreaming and the imagination is that it's such a perfect platform for the intuition and also spirits to connect with you. Creativity and psychic energy are bedfellows. I personally don't think you can engage one without the other. When I used to run classes one of the tools I use to help people connect with their intuition was creativity and I wanted to offer that out to you today. If you don't have one already, get a sketchbook and make a habit of doing some drawing in it. You dont have to be a good artist, or even a good drawer, the point is to engage with your creativity and not only see where it takes you but to also see what new literacy it offers you about your life.
I also think that the more you engage with your imagination the better you will get at visualisation which is, basically imagining on purpose. The benefits of visualisation are well documented, it actively opens doors to helping you create and call for the things you want. The good thing about all of this is that imagination is something we all have, it's something we are all born with and the more we use it the more it can benefit our lives. I have never understood people who fear imagination. If you can't play within the boundaries of your own mind how are you ever going to find and create joy as an adult? I've learned that a big part of being a grown up is learning which parts of you to intentionally keep child-like. Imagination is the open door to your connection with joy, the spirits around you and your intuition, what's to fear about that? Now, go play!
