The BFF You Never Even Knew You Had!
Dishes, laundry, emails, accounting-- do you ever feel like you just get so wrapped up in the daily hustle and "tasks" that you don't ever get to "play" or be creative anymore?
Believe it or not, one of the most game changing things you can do (professionally and personally) is tapping into your creativity & using your imagination!
Infact, Albert Einstein was once thought to have said, “Imagination will take you everywhere... It is the preview of life's coming attractions.” While logic will keep you focused in the here and now or guide you based on your past experiences, imagination will take you to new heights-- to the dreams placed in your heart!
I know that it isn't always that easy to tap into your creativity & bring your imagination to life!
Think of it like a muscle, if you don't use it-- you can loose it! Start tapping into it every day!
Make it your new BFF!
Here are some of my favorite ways to reignite your creative fire🔥
& flex your imagination muscle! 💪🏼
Creative visualization is using your imagination to visualize everything you want in the mind in order to deliver results in your present and in your future. There are a few pointers you need to know about creative visualization before you try it out first.
➕Get in a comfortable position. When you are preparing to take on creative visualization, you need to feel comfortable and relaxed.😌
➕Tap into your senses. Feel free to imagine hearing the sounds of the waves in the background. Listen for the swish of air as you ride the hot air balloon for the first time. Feel the feeling in your stomach as you take your first flying lesson. Taste the way that your congratulations cake tastes at the opening of your new restaurant. Smell the scent of the ocean as it drifts by you. Use all of your senses to tap into your imagination. Before you know it, you will be in Italy tasting that wine or smiling away as you sign your new bestselling book.🍷🐚
➕Chill out. You need to be in a relaxed state both in body and mind. You need to start out with your body before you can attempt to relax your mind.📿
The Power to Choose💁🏻💕
When you come to realize that you have the power to choose what thoughts you wish to think and what thoughts you wish to focus on, it's really something powerful.
When you use your imagination to your benefit or the benefit of others, your life becomes vibrant and alive.
You can choose negative imaginary images or you can choose positive imaginary images. The choice is really yours.
Whatever you focus on will come to life.
