Found this in a local metaphysical publication, Aquarius.  Was especially attracted to this sentence "The key to Intentional Creation is to know that everything is first created in your own imagination from an idea.".........   

"Imagination is Power!"

By Melissa Zollo

"John Lennon entitled a song Imagine. Thoreau once said: Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined. Neville once said: Imagination is the very gateway of reality.

Are you waking up to a new way of being? Can you feel something rumbling deep within you, calling out to live more creatively, successfully, joyfully? The fragmented ways of your old thinking cannot bridge the divide between mind and matter, body and soul, challenges and dreams. What if you build your finances, your business, your health, your relationships and your life around imagination and use your mental images, thoughts and feelings to attract the fulfillment of your dreams? By intentionally shifting into new states of consciousness you can change your blueprints of reality and affect your world. Imagination is power and you have it! Imagination creates reality.

Life Is a Banquet

Life is a banquet, so why are so many starving to death with unfulfilled desires? Laziness, complacency, no time, fear of the unknown you name it and the excuses line up. It's up to you to impress your subconscious mind with beneficial images of success. Doing this allows you to shift from undesirable patterns of being disempowered into habits that empower you.

Everything begins with a dream, a purpose or a goal. Being able to focus and concentrate in the midst of chaos gives you the winner's advantage. You are a focuser of energy. Focus plus uplifted emotional moods are the keys to your success. Whatever you do, never lose focus!

Everybody Wants a Better Life

Everybody wants a better life, but if you do the same old things in the same old way you will get the same old results. If a farmer plants corn seeds, he gets corn; he doesn't get tomatoes. If you focus on failure, poverty, or violent ideas how will you harvest (attract) success, wealth, or peace. If you want to change the results you are getting, you must change your images, because thought is creative. How to begin? First you must have a desire that is far greater than what you are currently experiencing.

The World

The world is a series of pictures, frames in a piece of film, or states of consciousness. What you are conscious of is real to you because you think and feel it is real. Your world is your very own personal mirror, forever mirroring your thoughts. It is your dream or your nightmare. What would you dare to dream if you knew you could not fail? What would be different in your life and how would you feel if you realized your dream?

Intentional Creation

The key to Intentional Creation is to know that everything is first created in your own imagination from an idea. It is then projected out into the world as experience. If your experiences aren't fulfilling, or what you had hoped for, then perhaps it is time to shift into a new state of awareness!

Just Imagine

Images or mental pictures are your prayers. Your inner blueprints (images) determine your behavior and the results you attract in life. They set the boundaries for what you can and cannot accept. Living your life without a proper success image is like building a house without a blueprint.

" Do you know how to design a success blueprint?
" Is your dream worthy of your talents and time?
" Would having it enable you to help those you love?
" What will becoming a conscious imagist do for you?

Here are 8 Keys to Fulfilling Your Dream and Achieving Your Goal:

1. Design a mind-compelling blueprint for success that has deep meaning for you to complete.
2. Propel yourself into action. Never despair over the time it takes for your dream to become a living reality.
3. Focus! Concentrate on your goal, not the challenge and you will burn a hole in anything that stands in the way of your success.
4. Expand your thoughts as you modify your habits and behavior.
5. Be patient. Recycle feelings of anger and fear into joy and gratitude.
6. Be receptive and responsive to inner guidance and outer assistance.
7. Success in any endeavor is measured by your belief in your deeper self.
8.  Walk in the awareness of answered prayer.

What kind of mental image do you hold of yourself? Everything you attract is an expression of your beliefs. Every person, your job, income, kinds of friends all correspond to your inner blueprints. Nothing is impossible to Imagination not poverty, stress, and not even adversity. Riches are within your reach. Anything you dream of- a healthy body, gainful employment, loyal friends, or a greater understanding of the Source of Supply can be summoned, once you consistently apply the Laws of Attraction to yourself. Imagine what you will attract once you know how to consciously use the Power of Imagination on your own behalf. Your ability to succeed is unlimited. Never close a door on a dream your dreams are calling you!  "

    Enjoyed the article!  I can't figure out, though, why sometimes my imagination works really well and things manifest like magic, and other times I can wear myself out with trying to image and create and visualize, only to have it either a) not happen at all or b) happen when I no longer want it to happen! 

    One example.  About 10 years ago I wanted to become a professional dog show handler.  I was already involved deeply in dogs, showing, handling and winning with my own .... but couldn't seem to snag a paying client.  Finally gave it up.  2 years ago, tried again when showing my own dog who was/is one of the top winning of his breed, which gave me an edge on snagging paying clients (which I only wanted in order to further fund my own dog's show career.)  NO CLIENTS, AGAIN!!! 

    But....... fast forward to 2 months ago .... voila, when I no longer wanted it, suddenly I had a handling client with a working breed similar to mine which would've been perfect 2 or 10 years ago!  But NOT NOW!  I am not presently showing!!  And this lady calls all the time BEGGING me to handle for her!! Offering money! And she has a dog that would win easily which would/could begin to build my handling career .......IF I STILL WANTED ONE, WHICH I DON'T!   Very frustrating ... I'm like where were you  10 years ago?!?

    I try to be patient with "Divine Order" but sometimes the timing of the order really STINKS!  :)

    So....is this just me needing to get better at creating ... or is it a hiccup in the manifesting process, or what?

                Thought about it overnight and it seems to be simply "be careful of what you wish for put visualization energy into because you're going to get it" .... but in a time frame to be decided by the universe!!      Give thanks for being answered and start putting energy into whatever is next. 

                Good luck to everyone!

                    Thanks Konane...good info. 

                    LuckyF.T, indeed that sounds like a hiccup in the time frame.  That happened to me before.  I had a goal of a complete, certified Morgan silver dollar coin collection, almost all of them in uncirculated condition.

                    I accumulated that collection within a few years.  While I was accumulating it I was buying when the coin market was high.  The coin market sank and at a time when I needed money I had to cash it in for thousands of dollars at loss. 

                    I achieved my goal but it did not benefit me.  Perhaps because my goal was for my benefit alone?  I don't know.  (But I do know that I'll never invest in collectibles again.)

                    My best advice to anyone thinking about investing after a lottery win is to protect your principal at all costs.  A U.S. treasury note paying only 1% guaranteed annual interest is better than ANY loss of principal.  And I'll trust Uncle Sam to guarantee that principal more than the state, my bank or stockbroker would.

                                        Agree completely about Fed notes being the safest overall.

                      My opinion about collectibles is that they're only valuable/high-priced when you're buying, so have a similar opinion as yours. 

                      Your mindset may have been directed toward accumulating a collection and NOT oriented toward making money if or when you sold them because you were not wanting to sell them at the time.  Gotta be careful about what kind of thoughts we put out there because we will usually get what was on our minds.

                      Good luck to everyone!

                        RickG, You sound like my dad; he's all about fed insured bonds for investing purposes!  :)  Maybe you and I have both had these experiences because we ARE "destined" to win a big ol lump sum soon, and we needed those experiences to prepare us for the BIG WIN!!! 

                        I'm ready for big changes of all sorts, how about ya'll?
