Very often wishful thinking is considered as negative, as an escape from “rock-bed-reality”, as an illusion which will never realize and if it does, it is the blind hazard, the exception from the rule. However – this world works on the basis of intentions and desires, generated by an individual and if these intentions and desires are strong enough and fit with the active convictions and more – are in alignement with the emotional vibrations – they become real.
So the act of wishful thinking has to be expanded a little bit to work. Instead of thinking use imagination and feed these images with your most beautiful emotions. Then – nothing can stop the fulfillment!
→ Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand. Albert Einstein
→ You have been taught that imagination is not real. It is what you term ‘pretend.’ This is incorrect, for in your consciousness, that part of which you are not aware, all of your reality originates in imagination. What you perceive consciously as imagination or pretending is a mirror image of your essence and its thoughts, this being the most creative part of your essence. Imagination is incorporated in all physical developmental focuses. It is incorporated in all dimensions and is incorporated in all non-physical focuses. It is a wonderfully glorious tool! All of your plans, all of your desires, all of your motivation comes from imagination. Elias
