― C.G. Jung
Have you ever had a really big decision in your life that you were contemplating; perhaps moving, getting married, changing careers, having children, retiring, etc? At these pivotal points in our lives, we could have a propensity to flee our imagination which can be a joyful companion in the co-creation of our lives.
In the psychology world, we might refer to this tendency to limit as Cognitive Inhibition. Simply put cognitive inhibition keeps us in our comfort zones. At times we may have trouble filtering the valuable information that offers creative opportunities and solutions. It is in the co-creation with our imagination that we are able to see worlds and possibilities that we never even dreamed of. We are antenna's of energy sending out and picking up energy all the time, so as we filter internal and external information it becomes imperative to know what energy is ours and what energy is another's.
One of my favorite powerful questions is, "What is your dream for this lifetime?" As I lean into this question in my own life I find 'fault lines' surrounding the perimeter of my dreams. Fault lines in the mind are the way that we have organized imagined scenarios. It's like we already know what is going to happen, so we don't deviate from the map of the mind. I like to think of these lines as the box that we have perhaps placed around our potential. If we always stay within these lines, we will struggle to envision an alternate dream and future for this lifetime. As you peer into your own life, how can you expand past your own lines with the knowledge that success is guaranteed to you? There is no way that you will not make your mark. The whole of the Universe is conspiring for your greatest good, your highest level of expansion.
Our imagination is a muscle that we must work with and engage on a daily basis. One of the questions that can help us to nurture our imaginations is to ask, "What is missing?" The very act of identifying and tapping into your imagination allows you to envision additional information.
So my friends, may you continue to expand past the fault lines of your mind, exercising your imagination and asking yourself, "What is missing?" I can feel the dream of your lifetime coming awake within you. Honor it. Nourish your imaginings. Live your life. Know that you are so supported and loved!
