What a day this will be, great bounties I can already see in my mind all possibility.
Imagination governs the human race according to Napoleon. The use of visualization allows you to imagine and see your miracle. You already use imagination a lot every day, but to make it a Monday Miracle exercise, let’s amplify its use. For a test answer the following questions:
- What is the color of your bedspread?
- Does the bedspread have flowers?
How did you do? I am sure you were 100% accurate because you used the strong power of your imagination to vividly recall the answers. You can do this for anything. Test it out. You can “see” or imagine yourself doing anything in the future or you can use your imagination to capture photographic memories of the past. When you imagine happy things, you create happy memories along with similar feelings to go along with them. When you think of past pain, the same is true – you can recreate those solemn feelings too. But, the useful difference is that with imagination you can choose to picture these feelings any way that you want.
The mind cannot tell the difference
between a real or a vividly imagined experience.
So with each happy imagination you can make each one a miracle when the image is BOLD, BRIGHT, VIVID, COLORFUL and filled with feelings of emotional intensity. For the somber imaginings you can minimize their emotional effect by doing the exact opposite. Make somber, sad imaginations DRAB, GRAY, SMALL and no longer add feelings when you see this drab past. Each time you think with sadness, do not deny the feeling, rather de-color it in your mind and move it far away from present memory far into the distance and fade it out as a gray grainy picture of the past.
Make vivid what brings you joy. Imagine peaceful happiness today, make that your miracle.
