Imagination is to the the mind what water is to the body. It keeps the mind supple and alive.

We all fall short of the mark when it comes to realising the power and potential of the imagination. I have known this since I was 12 years old and read Michael Ende’s ‘The Neverending Story‘ for the first time. I then read it again… and again. It’s the only book other than the Bible and Women Who Run with the Wolves that I have bothered re-reading.
I was reminded again when I was watching Benebell Wen’s brilliant talk about being a six figure mystic, where she reveals the process she uses which includes combining intuition (a reading for the year ahead) and the imagination (imagining how much she wants to earn and how), with rational left-brain planning and scheduling.
Daydreaming about being rich or published… or both… is not going to make it so, of course. But if you can’t even imagine any of it happening, none of it will. It all begins with visualising our desires and then fleshing them out in the imagination.
If we never pause to dream, we become automatons – perpetually stuck in a rut, lamenting our ‘fate’ rather than co-creating our destiny. The imagination is what moves us forward, both as individuals and on an larger evolutionary scale. The imagination is what makes our minds truly divine.
The Moon is in practical Capricorn today, so if we take into account that today’s Tarot card, 8 of Wands, speaks about communicating in a focused manner and the message from the Oracle of the Unicorns is about the power of the Imagination, we have a perfect recipe for getting stuff done.
What do you see yourself doing a year from now? How much do you imagine yourself earning? Do you believe it is possible?
Get your planner out and set yourself a goal. It doesn’t matter how big or small… as long as it’s a goal that makes your heart sing.
