Imagination is the Voice of Daring

Imagination is the voice of daring. If there is anything Godlike about God it is that. God dared to imagine everything.”  Henry Miller

Imagination is the voice of daring”….

When we were young, we spent our days imagining, dreaming, living a wonder-filled life of “what if”s.  We imagined ourselves to be anything.  Remember?

My imagination came to life through Barbie.  Yes, I was hooked on Barbie, Ken, Skipper – the whole gang.  Life was good at the Barbie and Ken house!  I was very shy when I was young, so Barbie really helped me to live out my adventures. What are some of your vivid imaginings?

Now we are older.  How are the imagination adventures going these days?  Do we still use it everyday or has it been put away with the childhood toys?

It’s time to “Come to the Edge Today” and open up the “imagination box”!  There are oodles of dreams and imaginings in there.  Even though our adult conscious mind may not have allowed them, the dreamer part of us would not be kept at bay, so it lovingly tucked all of them away for a time when we would be ready to receive.  Our dreams  have exponentially multiplied!  As a matter of fact, there are new dreams you placed there just today!  The box is overflowing!  Can you feel them prodding you to open the lid? 

Here’s the daring part.  Begin to listen to them.  They want to manifest in our life!   Begin to allow them back into your mind and into your heart.  Begin to use that wonderful gift of dreaming and imagining again!

Imagination and dreaming are loving tools we have been given; we shape and form the life we truly desire with them.  We also have the gift of choosing whether or not to allow them into our day to day lives.

Dare to imagine!  Dare to Dream!  What comes after daring?…..Your life adventure yet to be unfolded! (I promise that your dreams and imaginings will be the content of the adventure!)

Today’s “leaping” exercise:

Allow yourself 15 minutes to an hour (or as long as you desire).  With paper and pen, begin writing (or voice record) dreams you used to dream with your imagination.  Begin when you were small, then recall dreams as you grew older.  Re-mind yourself of recent dreams, wants and desires – even as recent as today.

Allow yourself to open the box and explore its contents.

When you feel you are complete, read the list slowly.  Acknowledge that these are yours…You created them.  Notice how full and rich they are.  Gently remind yourself that opening and acknowledging is enough for now.

For the next 30 days, read the list each day.  Dare to imagine them coming true – use all of your senses and savor the experience!  Try not to determine “how” they may manifest in your life – just imagine!  If you’d like, make a vision board with dreams on the list that have a special “pull” for you.  Keep it in a visible spot.

Be patient.  Be open.  Life unfolds for you perfectly.  Know that you are supported by a Creator who dares to imagine everything!

Imagination is the voice of daring…”  You are ready………Joan Kappes
