The second of your 6 mental faculties
Our six mental faculties are gifts that were given to us so we can create rich, fulfilling lives that we love.
“Imagination is the most marvelous, miraculous, inconceivable, powerful force that the world has ever known.” — Napoleon Hill
Imagination is our second mental faculty. Your Imagination is possibly the most potent faculty you possess because without this gift, nothing is possible; with it, anything is possible. Most people know about their Imagination, but they completely underestimate its power to transform their life.
You are a creative being. You can create the world you want to live in because you’ve been given the creative tools to do so.
Every single thing you can see has been created twice: first it was a thought, then it became a thing. It started in someone’s imagination.
Did you know that there are two kinds of imagination?
There is the synthetic Imagination which is your ability to arrange old concepts, ideas or plans into new combinations.
The creative Imagination is your ability to receive new thoughts, ideas and insights from the infinite intelligence—thoughts, ideas, and insights that have never been perceived before.
Napoleon Hill said, “The creative Imagination is the faculty through which hunches and inspiration come.”
Most of us use our imagination to terrorize ourselves. We imagine the worst outcomes. If our child is late and we can’t reach them, we imagine a car accident or something else equally scary. We want to start to harness our imagination to support us in creating a life we would love.
The first step in doing this is to ask, “What would I love?”
Thomas Edison would sit in a rocking chair with a rock in his hand held over a tin bucket—he was learning to get quiet and ask questions about the inventions he wanted to make. He held the rock so if he fell asleep it would fall into the tin bucket and wake him up. When he would sit quietly and ask his questions, he said he was accessing the land of the solution. If you go to the Smithsonian Institute and you see the Edison exhibit, you’ll see his journal where he wrote a statement that said, “I shall discover and deliver for the world a system of illumination to completely eliminate our current requirement on oil lamp illumination.”
At the time, he had no idea how to do that, but he had an idea of what he wanted to do.
He learned how to use the faculties of the mind to discover the answer.
The question isn’t what do you think you can create. The question is: What would I love to create in my life? The next question is: What steps can I take to accomplish this? You can access the land of the solution too.
What does the life that you would love to create look like?
How can you start to use your imagination for your good?
For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” — Albert Einstein
