- On the one side, imagination is often misunderstood, downplayed, misused and even ignored.
- A life without imagination however, is a life without vitality, wonder, awe or impetus; it becomes, stale, withered, dull and boring.
- Dreams and visions die on the vine and we are left bereft, disappointed, hardened and stuck.
- Personal effectiveness is diminished, relationships are affected, career growth can be impeded
- We lose hope, focus and can succumb to a sticky, heavy energy field that feels impossible to break out of.
On the same side, we can can also experience over-active, uncontrolled negative imagination where:
- The terror of worst case possibilities pummels our self-identity and self esteem
- We feel traumatized in a seemingly endless cycle of paralysis and self-sabotage.
- We become immobilized, unable to access our personal power and take action to create healthy change
Fortunately, the positive side of the imagination coin provides:
- Immediate relief, relaxation, wonder, awe, enjoyment so the “good vibes” of what we are imagining is really happening right now.
- Access to the high vibration frequency of ease and well-being that all top achievers in their field use
- A new paradigm free from threat: It’s called many names; being in the zone, peak experiences, the larger “field of intelligence” that is our true nature, etc..
- A guaranteed path to freedom from self doubt and worry
- Discernment with integration of both sides of the brain resulting in more clarity, easier decision making and more accurate access to intuition
Put your positive imagination to work moment by moment!
- You will experience a greater presence; the ability to stay present and be open to what arises without judgment or threat
- Do this enough times and you establish an internal training routine that transforms reactive stress triggers to high performance breakthroughs
- As Walt Disney said, “it’s fun to do the impossible,” so remember – DREAM BIG!
TAKE YOUR STAND- Lead from your Imagination to tap into a more joyful, intelligent, connected state of awareness!
- Use “what if” – questions to direct you where you want to go, for example, what if I got today’s tasks done quickly and easily?
- How would it feel to be super confident? Ask the question, notice the images and feel the feelings
- Go back into a great memory and relive it – take that inspiration and energy into how you do things
- Be a kid again in your mind and have an adventure – where would you go, what would you do, who would you be? Apply what you discover.
- Recall amazing night time dreams that you’ve had – what did it feel like to do the impossible?
- Visualize yourself as a favorite super hero – who would you be? Have a conversation! What would they tell you about your life?
- See if there are periods of history or geographical locations that you’d love to visit – imagine what they’d be like – soak up the great vibes
- Imagine releasing pain from your body – what’s the first image you see? Use it frequently – trust its affects
- When you breathe, imagine every cell in your body vitalized to the max for optimum performance
- Pay attention to signs, symbols and synchronicity that will begin to emerge as you use your imagination more frequently
- KEEP PRACTICING! Use the ABCs of Intuition to counterbalance the affects of uncontrolled, negative imagination to stay present even when it’s uncomfortable or unpleasant.
“What if “thinking is an instant bridge to your imagination – the BRIDGE from the sub-conscious to the conscious…. when we cross this bridge enough times, we are more aware of our innate goodness and strengths. We break the bonds of past limiting beliefs. We are working in the quantum field, re-wiring the brain and creating healthier habits to bring us results we could have never accessed through logic. The mind has learned from the past. Imagination is infinite wisdom beyond what the mind can access. When we make the mind the servant and not the master, we have the winning combination of structure, brain power and vision.
The healing power of imagination works – you’ve proven it to yourself in the past and it’s time to prove it again. It’s an endless renewable resource that is available 24/7 – Imagination is POWER! All that is required is your willingness to engage it, to apply its wisdom and be the super-power that you really are.

The changes that have occurred in my life as a result of Cheryl’s Intuitive Mentor Program have been phenomenal. Perhaps the most meaningful change is that I now see how I create opportunity, instead of wishing it would show up. I have the power, I always had the power. But now I see it, feel it, eat, sleep and breathe it. And–I’m finally free of the life-long patterns that caused the uncertainty, stress and lack in my life.
