Your mind is a powerful instrument

Your mind is a powerful tool or instrument and like any other tools if it is used properly it can produce great results but if misused, it can breakdown or destroy. As I lay awake in bed the other night, I started to think about the power of the mind sometimes I let it run away with me and it moves into a state of worry and fear. For example, I saw a dark colored mark on my arm and my first thought was it must be skin cancer. I worried and fretted and I tried to put those thoughts out of my head but nonetheless, they were there front and center. That evening after I showered, I looked again at the mark and I realized that it was a scab from a bruise like a rug burn. I don't remember when I got it or how I got it but none-the-less, it was there and healing.

My point is that I was totally upset by what I first saw and imagined to be reality. My mind played tricks on me and lead me in the wrong direction. If I continued on that path, I would have been completely upset and panicking. So my message to you is do you see what happens when your mind goes unchecked? Our minds are complex and therefore must be guarded and watched so as not to run usa muckand destroy that which we are trying to perfect.

When we nurture and cultivate our minds to perform clearly and with precision we set ourselves up to fulfill our material desires. Our minds have an unlimited capacity to hold and store information and it is only limited by our limiting beliefs. In today's world, we are able to access a wealth of information at a moments notice - itisn'tin the accumulation of information that is the focus here but rather how we use the information to satisfy our heart's desires. We can dream and collect data but once we have brought an idea to the foreground, it is what we do with it that makes all the difference in the world. We cultivate and strengthen our imagination by using our mind, our brain to step out of the box and take a risk. Visualization is just one valuable tool that is used by our minds to bring something into the present. Through visualization we have the ability to create an entire scene or movie of what we want to see realized. Many athletes and business professionals have discussed how their lives have dramatically improved with the power of creative visualization. Creative visualization uses the power of the mind to bring about what you are seeking. An easy exercise is to simply sit in a chair or lie down and see the scenario that you are hoping to materialize in your minds eye. Be specific, create a precise and clear scene, use color, tonality, make it bright and vivid, add movement and speak a tag line or statement of what you want to create and bring into your reality and when you want to accomplish it give an exact time line. By visualizing a specific situation or plan you are actually attracting it into your life. The magic that is evolving is through the power of your mind. Albert Einstein used creative visualization all of his life. He said: " Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere."

"Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will." George Bernard Shaw

"Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning." Gloria Steinem
