IMAGINE: Using Mental Imagery to Reach Your Full Potential
Your imagination is one of the most powerful inner mental resources for self development. It is especially effective for facilitating and accelerating change – whether adapting to change, or changing patterns of how you think, act (and react), and feel.
Best to take creative control of your images, lest they get the best of you.
Much of how we are and what we do is dictated by images of our mind. We tend to think, feel and behave consistently with whatever self-image is dominant at the time. We tend to re-create outer conditions to match our inner conditions. This explains how most lotto winners are in worse debt than ever within one year of their big win.
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
~ Albert Einstein
The advantage of practicing mental imagery is that it affords us the opportunity to practice that which we have little experience with, but upon which our success and wellbeing may depend. If you would prefer to be more in control over your destiny and less victim to history, then you need to take better control over the images of your mind.
Everything you can imagine is real.
~ Pablo Picasso
Neuroscience has demonstrated that mental imagery is a far more powerful tool than standard cognitive behavioural techniques (CBT) that involve self-talk and affirmations. The reach of mental imagery far exceeds words, and is the major portal of your brain for transformation and quantum leaping. Technically, according the science, applying mental imagery is virtually applied neuroplasticity.
