For weeks, I've heard the term 'reimagining' on a car commercial and it's been driving me insane! I thought...why weren't they saying the car was redesigned instead? Then I read that the Looney Toones have been 'reimagined' and again that WORD was there, haunting me. It seemed like a politically correct way of steering people to interpret what they wanted them too instead of saying plainly what they were doing - reinventing, redesigning etc. The more the word haunted me, the more insane it was making me.
That was all up until last night when guidance wanted me to 'reimagine' myself. I'm sure other beings in throughout the universe probably heard my internal scream at the mere mention of the word again from light years away. But after that initial irksome response to the word itself, I asked them what they meant. Had I even imagined myself to begin with? Seemed to me that in order to reimagine I would've had to imagine myself first.
Energy follows thought, they reminded me. Any thoughts I have at all about myself are followed by the energy to bring that into a reality of a kind. Not really news to me. It's something people have been saying for years in self development circles. As you think, so you are... you manifest your reality etc. It's a practice I've worked personally with for a long time. But in my mind, imagination is something very different from the purposeful deliberation of creating your reality, so I had no idea where they were going with this. I really don't spend much time daydreaming, having that drummed out of me at a very young age by the school system that didn't know what to do with a girl who spent most of her time in her imagination with the butterflies outside. Closest I come to daydreaming is when I work on fictional stories and even then, it's more like I'm seeing them in movie form, not imagining.
I was told to reflect on my thoughts about myself physically, mentally and emotionally and ask myself what I'd created through those energies. Well, for me, it's been a tough few weeks of personal integration so I've been up and down until finally, I stopped settling on ANY thoughts of myself other than what was going on in the moment. So, they told me to let go of all my thoughts of self and set my imagination to work. How would I create myself if I had a magic wand? In effect, this put me deep into an interesting meditative state as they guided me through the process that they called reimagining myself. I sculpted myself as I would a staff, wove myself as I would a dreamcatcher and drew myself as I would a picture. The sensations and feeling that went with this are difficult to describe but I will say, I woke this morning feeling VERY different, about myself and everything else. I highly recommend this for anyone interested. I tend to enter meditative states easily now so I didn't need the process but I'll put it in one here for anyone interested in engaging this themselves. You'll need to have decent contact with guidance so they can help you through it. What it does - I can't qualify or explain. I can only point you to the experience so you can see for yourself.
1) Get comfortable in a place you know you won't be disturbed.
2) Begin drifting your attachments. What I mean by that is, any thoughts, concerns, distractions of the day etc... just let them drift like snowflakes, not really settling or sticking any where. Non-attachment seems to be a key to entering this process. You can't even be attached to not being attached LOL. This is probably the hardest state to enter too so don't be disappointed if it takes you awhile to achieve this step. This is where you can allow your guides to enter your space and help you. Mine just pointed to where I still had attachments so I could 'unstick' them.
3) By now with all the drifting, your breathing should be slow and steady and you should feel in a receptive state. This is when my guides had me begin to reimagine myself from the ground up. At this point, your guidance can take you all the way through it and bring you back out again. It really is a combined effort, at least the way I did it.
So, give it a try if this resonates with you!
