If your imagination is what creates the images of your dreams through the pen of your minds-eye… the “ink-well” is the reason we have something to SEE in our imagination. Without it, we would be BLIND to the images our imagination is portraying.
I’ve always been told I have a wild, vivid imagination. From when I grew up, I could literally see the images in my mind’s eye so clearly, that at times I could not tell if they were in this physical reality, or in some “other virtual reality”. In fact, this component [the wild/vividness of my imagination] has been most useful in accessing my creative “genie-us” [my creative genius] to guide me on the internal process of discovering my vision and life direction of purpose.
I believe I had this amazing imagination because of how happy and filled with pleasure I was. It was literally like, the amount of ink [and varieties of color I had available in my inkwell] had to do with the vast array of emotions I experienced as a young child. I experienced many emotions and many tones to the emotions which gave me an endless supply of ink to create with my imagination. However, when I began to get stuck, later in life, with the emotions I carried… my creative genius eventually became blocked, because my ink-well dried up as I stopped experiencing the array of emotions available for me in the Present Moment of my life.
And sometimes our Creative Genius seems blocked, and does get blocked. It’s like our imagination power has been blocked. As a result, we feel our life contains degrees of hopelessness, because a huge component of our super-power is kept from us. One of the most amazing things I have discovered through working with many hundreds of people as they become aware of their individual understanding of their own body’s intelligence is:
You cannot access imagination power without “understanding the intel” of emotional data which is being processed through your body. In understanding this [at that specific of a level], you begin to understand yourself via your own motivations. And in the pursuit of doing this on a physical-reality-level, one must access the data processing center of emotional intel, which is processed in a few places of the human body; primarily the low belly of the sacral chakra.
If you are new to chakras, I’d suggest you’d start here to gain more intel/information on this subject. From the depth of my understanding of the charkas, they are the processing centers within the most amazing computer system in all the world… the Human Body. Our Soul is the “User” of the computer, and is FREE to experience all the amazing, wonderful things of this Reality. Through which, we discover the truth of who we are and the phenomenal creations we may realize, as well as our purpose for being present in this physical-reality.
When the Soul is not FREE to experience it’s birthright and divine design in this physical-reality, the mind which is in charge of the physical body can become lost in a virtual-reality of a world that is is an illusion, and a life that is not what is Real. The illusions have replaced the User’s Vision and what is taught [the illusion] is what is affirmed to be so! At this form of “reality” the focus denies, completely forgetting the computer-user of “who we are” [The Soul]… which has no form, no body, and is created in the image of The Creator GOD [All power, all presence, all knowing]. And at this point of living, there is no authority [connection to Source] from which to live an empowered life, for life just happens to someone. Napoleon Hill calls the person who embodies this reality, A “Drifter”. [And if you want to identify more about the difference between the realities of the Drifter and the Non-Drifter… I’d highly, HIGHLY suggest this book here called Outwitting The Devil. It’s not what you may think it is. And it’s completely LIBERATING for the Soul!]
Today’s Inspired Action: is just the simple function of helping us to connect with our “ink well” of imagination. If, per se, the function of our imagination was to draw images, words, phrases or scenes which share with us how our true desires relate to what our PURPOSE is in this physical world… then we may have the “pen” of our minds-eye… but without access to the “ink well”… there is limited chance to connect with the images, ideas or concepts held within the vision of our Soul. As we begin to strengthen our imaginations connection to our “ink-well” of emotional intelligence… we begin to inspire our imagination with amazing insights.
Now, some people have closed off the “ink-well” to the pen of their imagination because of F.E.A.R. [False Evidence Appearing Real]. When people begin to “Imagine The Worst”… is when people fear their imagination. However, sometimes we hold ideas which are undone or incomplete. In this case, we may act out in fear and not realize that it is because we believe some negative outcome is going to happen. While in actuality, we have an incomplete idea to process that on a core level, we believe we deserve to experience a negative outcome for some reason we have not yet finished processing or coming to peace with. If this is the case for you, there is a process of surrender to the goodness of who you are at the level of Soul.
This force, in which you were created, is a kind, loving and gentle presence. Now, I call It: God, It, Source, Creator, Divine, Love, Father, Mother… and none of these names are the epitome of what It is. But I guarantee with my own life on the line, the liberation of allowing your imagination to be used by the Source of who you are [which is good in every way], and allowing the imagination to access your emotions [the ink-well for the pen of the minds-eye] will cause you to be inspired to take action with strength and purpose.
If your inkwell has been disconnected from the pen of your minds-eye, so that your imagination has seemingly “dried up”… here’s what you can do to ignite your ink-well-connections [your sacral chakra center] to be used by the phenomenal goodness of your True Nature. Surround yourself with what genuinely brings you a high amount of Pleasure. If you choose something that includes both pleasure and pain… it’s not what I am talking about. For example, it cannot be Pleasure at the expense of another area of your life! Some suggestions include:
- Take a walk in your free time, enjoy the scenery – making it be the focal point rather than the back-drop.
- Watch a sunrise or sunset.
- Appreciate someone you love with a heart-felt gesture.
- Bathe in a relaxing ritual of sea-salts, epsom salt or baking soda. Nourish your skin with a few dollops of olive oil or hemp oil.
- Bring in some greenery or flowering beauty into your home.
- Enjoy restful sleep by turning off your computers, electronics and lights [except for candlelight] for one night of the week. Or take it a step further and enjoy the relaxing experience of Shabbat, a Jewish custom of honoring the Sabbath [the day of rest].
