Chapter 6–Talking to Spiders and Stretching Our IMAGINATION

Anyone who has been in the presence of a three -year-old has witnessed Creative Imagination.  At my former pre-school, a little boy was placed in time out because of his misbehavior. His chair was near a white, blank wall. Within seconds he started weaving an imaginative story about a spider that was crawling up the wall. Soon, all the teachers were staring at the wall to see this mysterious creature with 8 legs. It was of course invisible to all but the little boy.

But three-year-olds grow up and that power of Creative Imagination is replaced by being influenced by the negative thinking that permeates our culture. However, the good news is that by immersing ourselves with positive thought, our Creative Imagination can be revived.

When our intention is clear as to what we want, our thought impulses (ideas) increase their vibration. The laws of the universe begin drawing that to us as long as we fuel our passion.  A mentor of mine, Janet Henze, says, “Whatever you want, wants you.” That’s true!

The chapter concludes with:   “Ideas are intangible forces, but they have more power than the physical brains that give birth to them. They have the power to live on, after the brain that creates them has returned to dust.”

Consider the magnitude of those words!  What we are thinking about today…our passions and our creative thoughts…do not die when our physical bodies are laid to rest. They will continue to be lived out.

What right do I have to THINK small or to LIVE from a place of scarcity?

In Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill discusses the importance of training our mind to believe in limitless possibilities. Perhaps it would serve us well to talk to a few spiders today just for practice.
