Hi, I’m Carlos Marin author of USF and founder of USA and welcome to another episode of Your Unlimited Life… the show dedicated to teaching the mindset and strategies that will empower you to be, do and have anything you want in life.
Today we have a very exciting show called “How to Instantly Dominate the Game and Win!” This is a very compelling topic and one that most of the people in this world have no clue about. Knowing and applying this principle in your life will give you a tremendous advantage to win the game of life.
This week we will finish our training on the most powerful tool you and I have, to produce the life we really want to live instead of the one we were programmed to live. This is the faculty of Mind that can set us free from any and every limitation whether learned or self-imposed. I’m talking about Awakened Creative Imagination. And don’t be fooled, this is a very real area of skill; I’m not talking about wishing and hoping or idle daydreaming or fantasizing. I’m talking about the very power that Infinite Intelligence used to create the entire Universe and continues to use to this day to hold the cosmos in place and maintain perfect order in over 400 million billion solar systems. This is a power that only the most successful and wealthy ever master so if you want to join the company of the privileged few in this world you must take it seriously and do it too.
Okay, so we’ve already determined that thoughts are things. And if you’ve been paying attention you know they are the most powerful things in the world.
What if you could create anything you wanted to, right now? If you’re watching or listening to this on an airplane or stuck in rush hour traffic or somewhere else you’d rather not be, how quickly can you transport yourself somewhere else? In an instant, right? You may be saying, “Carlos, I’m at the dentist’s office and I’ve been sitting here for 20 minutes. There is no sign of that changing any time soon.” Come on, think about it. When you’re working out and you want to stop, what do you do to keep going? You picture yourself looking fine, strutting along the beach, right? Crossing the finish line at your first marathon. Or anywhere that is better than where you are in this moment. Whenever you are somewhere you consider unpleasant, while you may not be able to physically change your location, you can be anywhere in space and time – even the past and the future – with the use of the most incredible resource. No, not your iPad. I’m talking about your IMAGINATION.
Imagination is the creative power of Infinite Intelligence within us. It is always turned on and when directed purposely, is a driving force not to be reckoned with. I will encourage you to use your imagination countless times throughout this series, especially when I want you to abandon your standard way of thinking and really put yourself out there.
In the 1980s, Dr. Maxwell Maltz, author of the enlightening book, Psycho-Cybernetics, found that the mind couldn’t tell the difference between a vividly imagined experience and an actual one. This is because it is the job of the imagination to create experience. Imagination is able to create anything we can think or ask, subject to the consistency of our focused attention. If we direct this power consciously by thinking from the mindset of our dreams accomplished, we will act accordingly and achieve our desires. However, if we think from a state of mind of fear, doubt and worry, we unconsciously direct this power to bring negative, unpleasant results into our lives.
You and I, in the process we call thinking, are continually having mental conversations with ourselves or others and constructing scenarios by creating mental images and circumstances and manipulating them in our minds. All of this is the function of our imagination and our imagination is functioning all of the time.
Even in our conscious mind, what we call the reasoning process, as we compare data, facts, possibilities and different points of view, we are using our imaging power in order to examine the data, view things from different angles and create scenarios while having internal dialogue. This too is imagining!
In our subconscious mind, when we remember things from our past, whether pleasant or unpleasant, the faculty we are using to recall the images, sound, and feelings stored in our memory is our imagination. When you have doubt or worry about something or when you fear something, you are using your imagination to envision or have feelings about future occurrences, conditions or circumstances. Obviously everything we envision in our future when we look at our dreams, set goals and make plans is all imagination.
The ancient teachers taught that the imagination is God in action!
Visions of beauty and splendor,
Forms of a long-lost race,
Sounds and faces and voices,
From the fourth dimension of space-
And on through the universe boundless,
Our thoughts go lightning shod-
Some call it imagination,
And others call it God.
-Dr. George W. Carey
The philosopher and poet, William Blake, said, “The imagination is not a state; it is the human existence itself. The eternal body of man is the imagination; that is the divine body.” Blake saw imagination as nothing less than God as he operates in the human soul, as the forming or plastic spirit that works in God and in the human mind.
Albert Einstein, who is regarded as the father of modern physics, expressed his belief in the unlimited power of imagination many times stating such things as: “Logic will get you from A – Z; imagination will get you everywhere.” “Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”
Einstein said that in formulating his world-changing Theory of Relativity, he imagined himself traveling through space on a beam of light. How is that for the power of imagination to change your world? Certainly by now you can see how your imagination is used in every moment in time to hold your current view of reality in place or to use on purpose to create a new reality of your own choosing.
So it is the fusion of our imagination and our mindset that shapes our world. It is the mindset from which we think that determines the objective world in which we live. In order to wisely and consciously create the circumstances you desire, the future must become the present in your imagination. Through the power of imagination, you must convert your desire into already being it and acting as if it is so. Your imagination must be centered in the state of mind of the person who has already attained your desire and view the world from that state. Our desires arise in order to be fulfilled in the activity of our imagination and what we fervently believe to be true is what will be our reality.
The key then is to develop the ability to use our imagination on purpose to create the life we really want. This as in all developed abilities requires discipline and practice. Remember repetition is the mother of skill. To become a master at using your imagination creatively instead of destructively you must become aware of what you’re thinking throughout your day because it’s just a small jump from thinking about something to creating mental images, holding mental conversations and having feelings about what it would feel like if something “came true”. The difference in just thinking about something to imagining it is the feeling you have behind it. Imagining is not just about making metal images, that’s is visualization. It is about the feeling of certainty behind the image. Just like having mental conversations, it’s not the words you hear in your head it’s the feelings that are generated by those mental conversations. It makes no difference whether these imaginings are good (something you really would love to have in your life) or bad (something you don’t want to have and are afraid of happening), the intensity of the feeling behind it is the power you are investing into the thing you’re imagining.
An important exercise to do in order to practice this process is to get really clear about what you want your life to be like in the next 3 years. What would you absolutely love your life to be like in your financial and business area, your physical body, health and wellbeing, your relationships and your emotional and spiritual life? Just consider and answer this question on paper… If we were having this conversation 3 years from now and you were looking back on those 3 years what has to have happened in your financial, physical body, relationships and emotional life in order for you to feel happy with the results? Answer this question and get clarity on the life you’d love to live and write a couple of paragraphs about it.
Then every morning when you wake up read your Ideal Life statement and take 10 minutes to imagine that it has already happened. See in your mind what your life would be like. Hear in your mind the conversations you would have with the important people in your life including what you would say to yourself. Feel what it would feel like to already have that life. Let yourself go and really enjoy the experience! Repeat the same exercise, reading your Ideal Life Statement and imagining it has already happened at night right before going to bed. Do this every morning and every night before going to sleep for 10 minutes each. The more you do this, the more you are exercising your Imagination muscles and the better you will get at it. Eventually, it will become so real to you that you will start acting like that person you want to be, having that life you want to have and then it will manifest in your physical world.
So remember always My job is to help you believe in yourself and apply the principles that will guarantee your success and empower you to shape your world. I believe in YOU. I know that you can BE, DO and HAVE everything that your heart desires and I’m committed to showing you how to do just that. That’s my purpose.
