Use Imagination Wisely to Become a Better Person

Use Imagination Wisely to Become a Better Person

You have the gift of imagination. Imagination serves a spiritual function which allows you to be guided by your Inner Spirit–that spiritual guide in your inner life which connects you to the source of unselfish love and wisdom.

Don’t let the extraordinary ability of imagination go to waste.

Visualization is used by sports professionals and other skilled experts to mentally prepare themselves to succeed in their fields. These people practice imagining vividly, in great detail, the actions and attitudes needed to succeed. This method has repeatedly proven quite effective in developing skills.

Imagine Yourself Being the Person You Want to Be

You can use this special form of imagining to help you become the person you want to be. The process centers on enriching your ideal values–those qualities and standards you want to develop. Imagining yourself becoming a better person is not simply wishing. It is much more than affirmations. It is more than simply visualizing a scene. This powerful process involves imagining the thoughts, feelings, and actions you would experience when you express an ideal value in your everyday life. 

Imagining works. 
Imagine yourself becoming a better person.

We invite you to learn how to use this special way of imagining. We call it cultivating values. The video below will lead you tofocus your attention vividly on an ideal value you want to strengthen in your life. Begin by choosing a value.

Look at the List of Ideal Values and Choose One to Focus On

Look over the list below and notice which value appeals to you today to use in imagining. Or, feel free to choose an ideal value that occurs to you but is not on this list.

Values to Consider:

  1. Fairness
  2. Kindness
  3. Helpfulness
  4. Listening
  5. Appreciation
  6. Patience
  7. Generousness
  8. Encouragement
  9. Compassion
  10. Loyalty

Prepare to Cultivate an Ideal Value

Once you have chosen an ideal value to focus on, choose a special person in your life whom you trust and love and who loves you. Or if you prefer, imagine a beloved pet who gives you affection.

In the video you will begin with a process for relaxing. Next you will encourage yourself to feel gratitude by thinking of the person or pet that you selected. Gratitude is a powerful tool which prepares your mind to get the most from your imagination.

Then you will use three steps to help you explore and activate your chosen value. Even though you may not notice it, your Inner Spirit will help you use your imagination throughout this exercise to cultivate values.

  1. Relax and explore the ideal value to understand it better.
  2. Feel yourself breathing in the value with each breath of air.
  3. Imagine, in detail, how you will live the value.

Watch for Results

Once you learn the process, cultivate the same value spread over several days. Then watch for the results. Over time you will see changes evolving in yourself. When you use imagination to help you become a better person, you and everyone around you will benefit.

The ideal values that you practice in your imagination will grow in your life. 
Watch for the results!
