The wonderful, immortal words of John Lennon……Imagine…….
Well, it’s official – 2022 is well and truly here and there’s no imagining that!
The brain really can’t tell the difference between real and imaginary. Neuroscience studies show that when our brains make a particular movement compared to imagining a movement, the neurological changes are almost identical. Imagining lifting heavy weights does almost as much in terms of improving strength as actually lifting them ……and this same principle extends to all areas of our lives.
The brain can’t tell the difference between how you feel and how you imagine yourself to feel, nor between how your life is and how you imagine it to be, or even between who you are and who you imagine yourself to be. In a sense, your brain offers you a blank canvas to imagine whatever you want.
The secret to transforming any aspect of your life, is to spend a few moments every day imagining yourself in this new set of circumstances, while working with the energy centres of your body and deeply breathing these intentions into the very cells of your being. This requires your undivided attention, with no thought being given to the contrary. No reminding yourself of how things are or not knowing how any of this is going to happen……for these few moments, to simply pretend and then forget about it. Just get on with your day, then do the same the next day, and the next, until you find you don’t need to anymore.
A few things start to happen. As the brain processes what you imagine as real, natural resources are mobilised to deliver it. You’ll find yourself feeling a little differently at first, knowing what to say at the right time. You’ll also find yourself in the right place at the right time. All because your brain thinks that what you imagine is real, it makes everything do the necessary to bring all this about.
Focus on the key areas of your life, such as your health, relationships, finances, work, purpose, family, home etc ……simply imagine feeling the feelings of all these, just as you want them to be and see where 2022 takes you!
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!
