Intention gets talked about a lot in spiritual and self-help circles. It is believed that our intention holds energetic power that can make things happen. Intention alone is not a very clear concept, but nothing lights your intention on fire like the imagination. In fact, your intention is contained and carried forward like a passenger on the imagination. So your imagination is like a giant signal boost for your intention. Why wouldn’t you use it? It’s freely available to you all the time, any time, and you don’t have to be a master in self-discipline because this method is literally child’s play. It’s simple and fun.
The imagination is a direct sense of potential, as I’ve explained in previous posts. When we imagine a potential outcome we wish to achieve, we are co-creating the possibility for it to happen. this idea bears some similarities to the law of attraction, but I don’t believe that that law is valid as it has been described by others. I don’t believe that like simply attracts like, but that we must imagine things in order for them to be possible, or to increase their potential. We, as instances, are co-creators with the infinite.
So I would advocate that we work our imagination into our spellwork, our meditations, our prayers, our journeys, every part of life. You can bless your food and medicine before consuming it by imagining that it is healing to your body. When praying, imagine the outcomes you desire and especially imagine the emotions that you will feel when you do achieve those outcomes. When creating a spell or charging a power object, simply imagine that you are giving power to what you’re doing. This provides a clear picture that expresses your intentions, so they can better manifest.
The more confident you are in your imagination, the clearer and stronger your intention will be. Your imagination is the source of your magic, not mere fantasy! When you work with the imagination rather than against it, you will access the kinds of powers we think only a Shaolin monk could master, like healing one’s own body.
