Role of Imagination – Is What True?

Role of Imagination – Is What True?

Every myth is true one way or another. It is true when understood metaphorically. But when it gets stuck in its own metaphors, interpreting them as facts, then you are in trouble.”

Joseph Campbell

The human mind is very powerful. Imagination plays an extremely important role in creating the narrative. This is also significant when we use our imagination to perceive a future. We are the only species that are able to imagine what is not there, (take religion, for example), or give meaning to symbols, words and images. Each person has their own unique perception of universal symbols that mean something very special only to them. We often downplay the use of vivid imagination as being childish, but we behold successful innovators as being “visionaries.”  This is a direct contradiction and only serves to discourage those who if given the encouragement could make viable contributions into the world.

The primary language of our subconscious mind is in metaphors, symbols and pictures, whereas the conscious mind’s properties are in the spoken language, numbers and words. Sometimes conscious judgment leaks through, and the thought comes: “Is it  true? Am I making this up?”

If you are making this up, why not make up something you want? Why not create an experience where you can keep focus, experience joy, satisfaction and love?

Set the judgment aside, and continue the process. Experience yourself inside the journey of your life and enjoy the experience. Allow the imagination to create a world of possibilities regardless of whether it makes sense or not. There is plenty of time to prune back the ideas once you begin to take action.

"At the conference two things stood out for me. The first was your passion and knowledge about gamma, the second was the way that I felt during and after your presentation. It was a great experience for me: my body became very energized, like a power surge. I also experienced clarity about current situation in my life. I can just imagine what results I can have in private sessions with you! So I am drawn to learning more." Brad, 55, Psychiatrist, Vermont

"First of all, I was surprised at your organization, the size and breadth of the scope of work you did with me in the sessions. All my questions were answered. I was amazed how we went through the questions as sort of a blueprint of my life, and did all of it in one sitting. Very good, accomplished feeling! The most valuable revelation is that I am in charge of my life and it is doable, and can be effortless!" Jason, 57, Technical Director, Vancouver

"For a few weeks after our private work, I had not seen the connection between our work and the results in my life. I started to write every day, with interest and my novel is moving along. Recently, upon re-reading the transcripts from our sessions and evaluating my daily work, I realized, that what is now happening in my life is a direct result of our work together, my own revelations, and the personal intention I created for myself! Morrin thank you for making my life effortless! I didn't realize that I had acquired such a commitment to my writing and the actions I needed to be taking is so I can complete the book by my deadline." Teresa, 47, Author, Seattle, WA

"Thank you for your work with me. I feel so connected with inner quiet stillness and serendipity, a sensation of excitement and effortlessness. I feel very powerful in my own life experience, and exactly the way I want to be." Shirri, 38, Consultant, Israel

"Morrin, these amazing results must be attributed to our recent conversations. I don't k now how you do it. The result is that I am excited about my life, feel fully engaged in life, which is effortless and free." Lorraine R., 48, Banker

"As a mentor, you probably heard it before, but I will say it again. Now, after I started working with you, it is easier for me to do what I have to do at work. I manage a number of people and tasks, this coordination used to be tedious for me, and I used to get angry and impatient. Now I have a totally different awareness, and I had great experience learning through Gamma Hypnosis." Tim Daniel, 48, Sr. Manager, New York
