There is a part of the brain called the reticular activating system. It works like a filter between your conscious mind and subconscious mind. When we think about something we want, we start to notice it everywhere. If you are interested in buying a red Toyota Highlander, suddenly you will see red Toyota Highlanders wherever you go.
What is fascinating is that the reticular activating system of the brain does not know the difference between what is imagined and what is real! The effect of our doubtful imagination stirs our emotions, pumps up the adrenaline and gets the heart racing: at which point we are in full-fledged stress mode.
Imagining what we want is infinitely more beneficial to us than focusing on the fear about what we don’t want. Imagining the possibilities of a life of harmony, peace and prosperity changes our mood, outlook and energy. More importantly, we have the power to imagine what we want.
Each one of us has the power to transform doubt into faith. Wisdom from Albert Einstein, “Imagination…is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” Opening to imagination opens us to the limitless expression of Spirit.
