The Imagination is much more powerful than we think it is

Every invention was hatched in the imagination. Every scientific discovery, every marriage, every book, every act of kindness or meanness was first conceived in the mind.

Today scientists tell us that they can hook up sophisticated electronic equipment to a person’s head and as he talks the equipment can sense where in the brain the electrical firing takes place. A noun fires in a different place in the brain than a verb. One language fires in a different place than another language, if a person is bilingual.

Every thought creates electrical impulses which send electromagnetic waves out from the brain. Some scientists believe that these waves can travel a long distance. All of us think constantly and send these waves out to mix with the waves of other people.

Carl Jung, a famous psychologist, said there is a Collective Unconscious and that all of us can tap into it. I learned that in college and I thought it sounded ridiculous. Later as I read chapter 17 of the book of John I notices Jesus said the same thing. He said that all Christians are united as one and that the fabric of the Holy Spirit is woven together with the fabric of our souls like two different colors of thread being woven together. Well, he used different words, but that is my take on it.

Isaac Newton, who many consider to be the greatest scientist that ever lived, and Albert Einstein both talked about the power of intuition.

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant.” - Albert Einstein

“All human knowledge thus begins with intuitions, proceeds thence to concepts, and ends with ideas.” - Immanuel Kant-Philosopher

“It is through science that we prove, but through intuition that we discover.” - Henri Poincare (A great mathematician, physicist and engineer)

“Trust your hunches. They’re usually based on facts filed away
just below the conscious level.” - Dr. Joyce Brothers

“Follow your instincts. That’s where true wisdom manifests itself.” - Oprah Winfrey

Many people say that daydreaming about their wedding day was actually more fun and exciting than actually living it. Some say the invisible world of love, hate, angels and demons is more real than the world that we can see and touch.

Two thousand years ago Jesus said that if you think about committing adultery with a person it is committing adultery. He didn’t say it was almost like, or similar to committing adultery. That was a radical new concept, because in the Jewish religion people believed that God looked at the actions, not the heart/mind.

Have you ever had dreams that seem more intense and real than the world you see every day? I sure have. Some say our spirit never sleeps and is active when our body is asleep. 2 Kings 5:26 says that Elisha could send his spirit out of his body to go snooping around other places. Wow!

Whatever you believe, I’m sure you would agree that our thoughts are incredibly powerful. What do you think? Leave a comment.

    Thanks, I now know to wire some components off the board. How does smonoee solder with an unplated perfboard? Connections and wires go in the holes and are held in place with solder? I want to use an outlet for a step down transformer. How do I know how much current will be drawn? I have a 120V to 12.6V 3 wire 3 amp transformer that I want to turn into an AC supply. This video helped me realize I do not need a perfboard at all, just a mount for the transformer and the fuse and the switch.Thanks.

      Hey B -I just read Bella’s story and I was so moved, and also a bit angry at your doctors. I want to shout at them. Maybe they are worn down by the nembur of cases they see, but they should remember that they are in the business of healing PEOPLE, actual PEOPLE. And words can cut just as deep as wounds. News this difficult should never be delivered so coldly. I’m sorry you had to go through that.You are such a strong person Beryl and I admire your willingness to share and inspire. I’m happy to know you.-M

    It’s amazing how our thoughts can make or break our day. I try to stay positive as well because I know my son can sense when I get overwhelmed by negative thoughts. Thanks for the post.

    i totally agree also :) it’s funny i wrote a post about emile coué…this french thérapist wrote in 1922 “It is not the will is the faculty of the first man, but Imagination” Emile Coué (1857-1926)…einstein said the same…the thing is that emile coué was forgotten in France.. he was really more welcome in United States…

        Posted on I didn’t think we had to pick the director based on their abiilty to direct a compelling film. But you’re absolutely right about Marie Antoinette I definitely wanted to see someone anyone get beheaded at the end.As for the shelf issue, I don’t mind. I’m very civic-minded and will gladly distribute Cheez-its for everyone. Except for people with shifty eyes.

      Ariana Posted on I can’t believe how many pepole root for Peeta. I mean, sure, he’s kind, sweet, caring, selfless and all that other stuff but personally, I don’t think Collins has done enough justice with Gale. He’s HARDLY in both books and I feel as if she’s leaving us with the guy Katniss doesn’t want to be with on purpose as opposed to the guy she wants (but who is hardly ever around). Although, in the end, even though it’d piss me off A LOT she’d probably be on her own. But think about it, she’s still a teenager. How can she decide on this stuff when she’s a teenager?

      Emily Posted on Ughh . Peeta. Seriously, why is it that all the boys like Gale, i think they like how he’s all macho. Peeta’s by far the better psreon. He’s sweet, romantic, and completely selfless . Way better relationship material, I don’t care what connection Katniss and Gale have.
