The imagination of a child can be so beautifully innocent, wonderous and amazing. While playing, the imagination allowed to run free creating fantasy and awe-inspiring visions with such magnificent detail. The time shared in this make-believe world could last for hours; losing all sense of time with no thoughts of when one last ate or drank anything. When time or a beckoning parent separates this shared creativity, all agree to return as it was. Should you have participated in this kind of play or have been privy to overhearing such magic; you may have encountered set up prompts such as “What if…” and then the others would build and weave more deliciously fun tidbits.
Then one day someone says “Grow up! That’s child’s play.”. Although there is struggle at first, the pressure of so-called “real life” begins looming. Friends with main parts begin to move. Relationships shift and change as conditioning inputs take shape. Separate lives; separate your life. Loved ones past on, school, responsibilities, marriage, home loans, bills, politics, and religion. Allowing other influences from tapping into Divine creativity. Trading outside in nature time, to long hours in front of the television time. Sync and sunk into the latest greatest devices. They say, “This is Real Life”.
But, what if….
What if there was a remembrance of how powerful the imagination REALLY is? That instead of listening or allowing worst-case scenarios to replay that there is a tuning in to creating all the best-case scenarios. This life holds many possibilities and from this space of going within we can observe and listen to the stories that may be looping on auto replay. Asking from our heart space the questions that need to be asked. Is this true? What if I used my gifts to the maximum of my greatest potential? What if today I decided to give my best? What if every action came from LOVE? What if there was a declaration of greatness for your life? What if you trusted your God-given powers to heal? To shift from worries, doubt and shame; to wisdom, trust and claim. Claiming the wisdom that we are all a part of this beautiful, creative process. Each with a role and purpose beautifully significant as the other. Yes, this is life. Let’s play!
