As someone who has been a huge Beatles fan, John Lennon’s song, Imagine, continues to be one of my favourites. Just yesterday, I heard my husband playing his guitar in the garden and I smiled when I heard him playing ‘Imagine”. I often wonder how many thousands and thousands of people have been touched by this song.
Imagine has affected and touched me in many ways. But most profoundly is the message of how important imagining, visualizing and knowing that we can transform our world through our creative imaging is. Wow…my thoughts, feelings, emotions have so much power!
I know creative visualization works as I have seen the manifestation of so many of my thoughts, dreams and desires. Everyday I keep visualizing how I want my life to be. I do this everyday because we can have so many outside influences that can shift our thoughts if we allow them to affect us.
I often write or draw or cut out pictures for material things I’d like to have, but most of the time I visualize a peaceful, loving life. Then I know that everything else will fall in place. It usually does, but I have had lots of times in my life where I struggled and was unhappy and not holding the energy of positive light. It is difficult to “imagine” when we are down and feeling badly but this is the time, of course, that we need it the most.
I realized long ago the power of creative visualization and it is so powerful. Never doubt that it works, but once you have your vision…let it go. Byletting go, I mean simply feel that it is going to happen sometime, but do not be anxious about the outcome. Who knows something even better may come to you if you are open and willing to go with the flow.
This doesn’t mean sitting around waiting for all the abundance to come to you without any action. If you are imagining a peaceful life and you are living in turmoil then you need to start making changes to clear up your personal space. Words, thoughts and actions work together. I see so many people throwing out negative words in their daily language. They don’t seem to realize that what they give out will come back to them.
So as I imagine what I would like in my life, I also check to see if my behaviour and actions are positive and clear so that I am open to receive. It’s easy to sabotage your dreams by self doubt. I can tend to be critical about myself and that’s a sure way to stop positive energy. But I’m learning to move into a more non-competitive space that allows me just to be me and not trying to compete with others. Competition is part of our economic world and it is hard for most people to imagine any other way of living or doing business. When you imagine your dream(s) and start living it, everything just falls into place. It’s not about me being better than the next person, it is just about me imagining me being the best I can be.
So here’s what I’m imaging today -‘I am joyous because hundreds and hundreds of people are coming to my blog everyday. I am reaching people who are willing to make a change in our world by simply opening their hearts. I am providing programs and services to assist them on their journey.”
This is my vision and dream…what is yours? Perhaps, you will assist me by sharing my blog with others.

Imagine, it’s easy if you try! Dream BIG!
Here’s an e-mail message today from I received from Neale Donald Walsch. Thanks Neale.
On this day of your life, Jane Rosalea, I believe God wants you to know…
…that imagination is your greatest gift. Do not be afraid
to use it.
Imagine yourself as being okay right now. Totally okay.
Imagine yourself as Whole, Complete, and Perfect. With
nothing to change, nothing to “improve.”
Imagine your heart as being open again, your life as if it
were starting over in the most important ways.
Can you imagine this?
Then you have just created Tomorrow.
Let’s walk the peaceful path together,
