Imagination

If you fetched this card, it means it’s time to go back to the playpen of your mind and get up off your haunches to get a new view of things, a bigger picture of all your possibilities. You could be feeling hounded by the past, and as a result, too stuck in the frame you’ve been living in for some time, with little motion forward or very little change in scenery. It may have been a while since you last pictured in vivid detail what you truly desire in your life now.

Having an imagination is one thing, a great thing. Using it makes all the difference. Allow yourself the time to go within and shepherd thoughts of what your ideal life could look like. Infuse these thoughts with the excitement of hope, and you’re on your way to training your mind to lead in the direction of your dreams—rather than simply repeating old patterns, disappointments, or disillusionment. Instead of disillusionment, you can mentally create positive illusions that feel good and inspire you to learn new tricks and act in more productive ways, ultimately bringing that reality ever closer.

Don’t fall prey to the fear that if you imagine the best, you’ll be setting yourself up for failure. Unless you’re more invested in experiencing worry, anxiety, or being right than having your best life, picturing worst-case scenarios—though sometimes handy for problem-solving—is dangerous when that’s all you dwell upon. Picturing best-case scenarios doesn’t mean everything will turn out as expected; it just means you’re priming the pump and filling the water bowl instead of draining it.

From its signature product The Divine Dog Wisdom Cards, Enlighten Up LLC features here just one card of 62 with its theme, phrase and some excerpted words for reflection from the deck’s wise and wonderful guidebook by Randy Crutcher and Barb Horn.

Here’s just one nugget from the Divine Dog Wisdom Guidebook. Each of the 62 cards in the deck has a reading and this is the one for the Imagination card. See what it could mean for you!

Divine Dog Imagination

Another Bone to Chew On

Are you visual? Make a vision board collage of what you want more of in your life. Are you verbal? Write about sharing what you’re grateful for on your birthday . . . five years from now. What happened that made you so happy and fulfilled and grateful? Get into the feeling of what it would be like to already experience having it, doing it, and being it, as though it has already arrived in your life.

That is what makes the ever-present, always operating Law of Attraction work in your favor. Put your attention on the future as if it has arrived, rather than on the absence of something past or present in your life, which you already know does not bring you more happiness. What if it all turned out better than you expected?

Imagine that!
