All of us on the true awakening path know that all the old energy duality-based tools
become obsolete once we begin the journey into the New Energy.
As we say on the Home page… Absolutely nothing is the same now as it used to be,
and nothing works like it used to work.
And that includes all those old energy affirmations, structured visualizations,
mind control/programming techniques and all the rest of duality’s so-called ‘secrets’.
So after all that, what do you IMAGINE we have now to ensure that all our future needs will be taken care of…
and who knows, to even reap a few wonderful surprises into the bargain?
To find out, let’s take a little trip back… a long way back
In the beginning… God/Spirit/Source/All That Is. There was no other… at least no other that God/Spirit/Source was aware of. It was aware however that something else, another Primary Consciousness or Primary Energy Gestalt, another God/Spirit/Source existed before it that it must have evolved and developed from. But it was so very, very long ago… in some indescribably distant past.
Our God/Spirit/Source (or our Mother/Father God if you like) became progressively more curious: dreaming, contemplating, imagining. Ever multiplying dreams and imaginings. Eventually developing within its massive imagination the entire creative pattern from which all realities would manifest together with their infinite possibilities. And it grew to evermore love what it saw, but which was not yet separate from itself.
Then the desire to burst forth to freedom. The urge to experience. The primal urge to create, to know itself and to express itself. Divine subjectivity with the overwhelming urge to manifest physical reality; to release and actualize individual consciousness.
In an inconceivable flash of creation, individualized Divine immortal consciousness, ever cherished and protected, is released with the primal creator’s love and creatorship inherent in each.
We are created in the image of God (and not the other way around). We are God also. The “glory” referred to in all sacred teachings and holy books is nothing less that the unveiling of God… in us, as us. “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” 1. Corinthians 3:16
Man is all imagination.
God is Man and exists in us and we in Him…
The Eternal Body of Man is the Imagination,
that is, God, Himself.
~ William Blake
The first power that meets us at the threshold of the soul’s domain
is the power of imagination.
~ Dr. Franz Hartmamm
The imagination is never governed, it is always the ruling and divine power.
~ John Ruskin
So then, if all creation originated in the imagination of God, and we are also God or individualized divine immortal consciousness, then clearly we can form and change our reality using the very same divine creative attribute – imagination.
So what’s new… aren’t all those books on creative visualization and positive thinking about exactly that?
No, in actual fact they’re not. This divine and infinitely powerful creative imagination is not what we’ve been led to believe it is by all those duality-based theoreticians, authorities, authors and experts. It’s difficult to explain, but imagination doesn’t come from the same place as visualizing and has nothing whatsoever to do with the old energy concepts of mind control, affirmations, mental discipline or positive/structured thinking. Although visualizing with the mind can and does work on rare occasions, especially when combined with the feeling of the wish fulfilled, it has left most of us, especially those of us on the true awakening path, feeling frustrated, cynical, dispirited and altogether hopeless. The “secret”, along with all of its grabby offshoots and spin-offs, just doesn’t work for us no matter how hard we try.
And why not?
Mind control or mind visualizations are inevitably structured, disciplined and detailed; they’re always specific… and specifics are now very much old energy. We visualize in our head a specific house that we want or a specific sum of money that we want or the perfect partner that we want. It’s always a concocted mental picture of exactly what we want or think we want, but which in fact – and this is of the utmost importance – may be very limited due to old beliefs we still hold about our self-worth etc, and may not always be in our best and highest soul/spirit interest.
Yes, but what if it does happen to be a house that we want? Don’t we do a little evening ritual and picture this particular house over and over in our head? Isn’t that the way it’s done?
Not now in the New Energy it isn’t. All of that is structured, controlled, and ultimately very limited thinking… and very tired old energy. What we do now in the New Energy is to set our imagination free; we allow it to soar – unbounded. Without any controlling or forcing or specifics or boundaries, we simply daydream or imagine that everything is already there for us, that all our material needs are already taken care of. We now have everything we need… a perfect dwelling, a vehicle to get around, the dog, the cat, the garden, friends, opportunities, resources, everything… including perfect health and plenty of money.
Phew! F E E L it. What a relief!!! No force, no controls, no disciplines, no hocus-pocus rituals, no agendas, no struggle, no petty details… and NO limits. And when we are not specific or structured or limited, we are then always co-creating what in fact is in our very best and highest interest, or soul/spirit interest.
The only thing that we need to be aware of is having our imagination and feelings slip into old default settings of unworthiness. If this should happen, just remind your petty little mind that regardless of what it may choose to believe to the contrary, it is actually impossible for you to be unworthy. God can NOT be unworthy – Full Stop!
The only other possible thing that we need to guard against is getting all cerebral and linear with the ‘how’ and ‘when’. Exactly how and when things manifest is always outside our control – which is exactly where it should be. How and when are just part of the details that we never need to concern ourselves with because the timing is always perfect anyway. As we’ve always said… All is in Perfect Divine Order.
Lastly, although it could appear to be the case, nothing on this page actually contradicts or conflicts with any other of the Points of Power writings. It stands alone… ever ready to use when one feels the time is right.
So there we are. All our needs are now taken care of. And who knows, with even a few unexpected and wonderful surprises on the side. But there is something far grander we should be aware of. As a great metaphysician once said…Imagination seeks from us something much deeper and more fundamental than [just] creating things: nothing less indeed than the recognition of its own oneness with God; that what it does is, in reality, God himself doing it in and through Man who is All Imagination.
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
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
[Notice he said imagination and not visualization. Very New Energy.]
Without this playing with fantasy no creative work has ever yet come to birth.
The debt we owe to the play of the imagination is incalculable.
~ Carl Jung
Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.
~ Albert Einstein
Remember, all this began with me daydreaming about a mouse.
~ Walt Disney
Questions & Answers
Q. Thank God for that! At last somebody who agrees that all that mind control stuff is [deleted]. I was beginning to think there was something wrong with me. So how do I start using the REAL imagination?
A. Stop thinking and start feeling.
Q. If imagination doesn’t come from the same place as visualization, i.e. the mind or head, then where else could it come from?
A. The heart… but not as in cardiac.
Q. I agree with everything you say about the power of imagination, but I don’t see it fully effective unless we’re in a very peaceful place and feeling totally and utterly safe.
A. And the New Energy is the safest place that exists.
Q. I can’t see any difference between visualizing and imagining. And the more I think about it the more I’m sure there isn’t.
A. You’ll begin to see the difference when you stop thinking about it. Thought and visualization are human; imagination is divine.
Q. I love your article on imagination, but there really isn’t any technical detail.
Q. I’ve always felt that the imagination is a far grander tool than just something to create our basic needs with. I personally believe we (including Einstein) haven’t even scratched the surface of where the imagination can take us. Agree?
Q. I’m confused now. You’ve always said that in the New Energy our life becomes “synchronistic”, meaning that all our needs are automatically taken care of as they arise. So why would we need to ‘imagine’ anything if all our needs are going to be met anyway?
A. Ultimately we don’t. In the New Energy our life does become synchronistic (see the Human Creation vs. Divine Creation page). But isn’t it both comforting and empowering to know that on the way we have at our disposal the gift of the gods – New Energy Imagination. Just Imagine… no limits.
Q. You’ve said on your Hints for Transition page that while we’re in transition we shouldn’t try to make things happen or try to create our heart’s desires. You say we shouldn’t set goals or attempt to control anything, just let go, release, allow and trust the process. So how will I know when the time is right to start playing with my imagination?
A. Ah, you used exactly the right word – ‘playing’. So how will you know when the time is right? You will just know… just like you know when you’ve fallen in love. Remember, however, that when you do begin playing with the imagination, the same transitional formula applies – letting go, allowing and trusting. No force, no struggle, no old energy mind control, and no limits. Just let it go and let it flow… into creation.
