Good Morning Brilliant and Excellent People,

Creativity is the generation of ideas that are both original and reliable and imagination is a creative process. This means that the minutest creative processes employ imagination.
What is imagination? It is the ability to create an image, experience or event in the mind without employing our physical senses.
An incredible story is told of a young girl who had speech impediments. Her greatest prayer was to be able to deliver a perfect speech before her friends, family and class mates in school one day. Over the course of three years, as the doctors battled with one surgery after another to correct the impediment, she spent a considerable amount of time imagining that she not only was able to speak but that she also delivered the best speech in the history of the school.
She imagined the rounds of applause, the standing ovation, and the commendations from her teachers. She also imagined the doctor saying to her parents, ‘her fast recovery is very amazing and unexpected.’ When the surgery was over, within a week, she gave the best speech ever heard in the school. She went on to become a national debater and the best public speaker ever.
The key to turning imaginations to reality is to first believe it strongly, then act like it’s true in the present. The body will often move in the direction the mind follows, so if you believe it strongly and think on it from time to time, it becomes your reality. This doesn’t mean that by just sitting in your house and imagining a million dollars, it actually appears at your doorstep. No! This means that, believing it will move you to take necessary actions in making that state your reality.
Think about something or a situation in your life that you can experiment with, a habit you want to change or a lifestyle you want to inculcate. Whatever it is, take a note and write it down. Afterwards, take one hour a day, make it a time you feel relaxed, preferably in the early hours of the day. Sit back, close your eyes and imagine the ideal you, the ideal situation, or the ideal lifestyle. Whatever it is you wrote down, now is the time to really imagine how you want it to be.
Don’t begin to worry about how it’s going to happen, and don’t cloud your mind with doubt that it will happen. Instead focus on getting your mind and your body to agree. As it is said, whatever you can believe, you can become.
Once you have set in motion the power of imagination, creative things actually begin to occur.
IMAGINATION AND MEMORY
Memories are the building blocks of imagination. To imagine yourself, for example, married with children and a stable career, the brain needs to first have a stored representation of children, of the union between man and woman, of having a job and so forth. Imagination is made possible by memories because the brain has a foundation from which it builds on to create new ideas and events. Memory is born out of experience, imagination builds on the experience to create something new.
Thinking about events and experiences in the present will have no effect whatsoever on your past, but it can have an effect on your future. Thinking about things in the past can have great benefits because it allows you to learn and apply lessons learnt to future experiences. That being said, imagination is the future.
People prefer remembering to imagining. Memory deals with familiar things while
We should use our imagination more than we use our memory. We should never stop at familiar things alone, imagination requires launching out into the unknown, and rightly so, because we are able to experience situations we have not experienced in the present. According to Amos Bronson Alcott, Memory marks the horizon of our consciousness, imagination its zenith.
IMAGINATION AND CREATIVITY
“The epitome of using visualization to create and invent was Nikola Tesla. At an early age Tesla trained his powers of visualization. In his autobiography “My Inventions”, he describes,
“Every night (and sometimes during the day), when alone, I would start out on my journeys – see new places, cities and countries – live there, meet people and make friendships and acquaintances and, however unbelievable, it is a fact that they were just as dear to me as those in actual life and not a bit less intense in their manifestations. “This I did constantly until I was about seventeen when my thoughts turned seriously to invention. Then I observed to my delight that I could visualize with the greatest facility. I needed no models, drawings or experiments. I could picture them all as real in my mind.”
Tesla was a prolific and unparalleled genius, giving us AC electricity, the electric car as well as many other devices, some which have not seen the light of day because they would revolutionize man’s approach to energy.” The Power of Imagination – Enchanted Mind
