Two Forms of Imagination

An excerpt from the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

The imaginative faculty functions in two forms. One is known as “synthetic imagination,” and the other as “creative imagination.”

Synthetic Imagination:- Through this faculty, one may arrange old concepts, ideas, or plans into new combinations. This faculty creates nothing. It merely works with the material of experience, education, and observation with which it is fed. It is the faculty used most by the inventor, with the exception of the who draws upon the creative imagination, when he cannot solve his problem through synthetic imagination.

Creative Imagination:-Through the faculty of creative imagination, the finite mind of man has direct communication with Infinite Intelligence. It is the faculty through which “hunches” and “inspirations” are received. It is by this faculty that all basic, or new ideas are handed over to man.

It is through this faculty that thought vibrations from the minds of others are received. It is through this faculty that one individual may “tune in,” or communicate with the subconscious minds of other men.

The creative imagination works automatically, in the manner described in subsequent pages. This faculty functions ONLY when the conscious mind is vibrating at an exceedingly rapid rate, as for example, when the conscious mind is stimulated through the emotion of a strong desire.

The creative faculty becomes more alert, more receptive to vibrations from the sources mentioned, in proportion to its development through USE. This statement is significant! Ponder over it before passing on.

Visualize and Achieve – Guide to Creative Visualization

By Remez Sasson

Creative VisualizationVisualize and Achieve is not a book about how to build and manage your business, how to manage your time, or how to invest your money.

This is a book about the essential ingredients of success – attitude, thinking, visualization, the subconscious mind, and other mental and emotional ingredients. It is a book about creative visualization – how to use visualization to create and attract success.

This is a book that explains some mental rules and teaches how to use them. It is a book that speaks about planting the seeds of success in your mind, watering them and growing them. It is a book about the powers within you that can repel or attract success, depending on the way you think. It teaches you about the powers of your mind, about visualization and about positive thinking.

Without a clear goal you cannot create anything of value. Success, any success, big or small, requires a clear mental image, strong desire, motivation, perseverance, faith, concentration, and a right attitude. This is a winning mentality, and this is what this book is about.

To visualize is to see what is not there, what is not real – a dream. To visualize is, in fact, to make visual lies. Visual lies, however, have a way of coming true.
– Peter McWilliams –

I have also included in this book exercises to sharpen the power of concentration and develop the imagination, so that you can visualize clearer mental images. Both concentration and imagination are essential tools for achieving success in every area, work, business, sports, writing, studying, school, the arts, relationships and everything else.

The book has been written in a clear, easy to understand and down to earth manner, which takes this subject out of the fogs of mystery and the supernatural, into practical and solid reality.

Your Thoughts Create Your Reality

The thoughts you think most often create your reality.

For every external effect there is an inner cause: Your thoughts. In other words, the conditions and circumstances of your life are as a result of your thoughts and beliefs. How can you utilize this law of nature? By being conscious of your thoughts, avoiding the negative and pursuing the positive, and also by using the laws of creative visualization, or using today’s term for this not new technique, the law of attraction.

Creative visualization is a mental technique that uses the powers of the mind and the imagination to create what we want in our life. With the help of this technique we can shape our life, character and circumstances, and attract opportunities, people and the things we desire.

This technique is similar to daydreaming. In both of them we create imaginary mental scenarios of events and situations, just like a movie, but with the difference that with creative visualization we use certain rules and techniques that enable us to create these mental scenarios and events as reality in our life. Through this techniques your thoughts can create your reality.

The thoughts we most often think create the circumstances and events of our life. When you become familiar with the mental laws of success, and learn how to visualize what you really want, you will then be able to improve your life and create success. You become the conscious creator of your life.
