Imagination’s Power

The Prayer of I Am moves deeper into our awareness as we place our I Am Identity in the center of our creative consciousness, our imagination.

Imagination isn’t just child’s play, it’s a faculty of mind we use every day, all day. It’s the part of our mind that pictures our reality within, which in turn projects it without. It’s used to create outwardly what we believe is true inwardly.

What we imagine to be true is what we believe. What we believe in this present moment is what our mind projects outward giving form to our reflective reality. For example, we take what we’ve learned or experienced in the past and imagine a future. We imagine a future we want, and one we don’t. We imagine all kinds of things, images of our selves, and situations. Our mind is full of conflicting images and corresponding inner talk. The result is a chaotic reality of these vain imaginings fused together, much like a night dream. Our reality isn’t a static form, it consists of dynamic energy that changes according to our thought life.

With a lack of awareness of our true Self, we imagined a false image of our self. We imagined we were spiritually naked and lacked the divine attributes. Because we believed our vain imaginings, we created a reality of lack. In desperation, we created idols, which we then trusted to provide for all we believed we lacked; peace, comfort, joy, purpose, and love. Although we initially believed otherwise, idols can’t clothe us with spiritual attributes. Therefore idols leave us naked and subject to fearful imaginings that project a reality of lack. Instead of reflecting our true expressions, we reflected their opposites.

As the Spirit melds our mind into the Divine Mind, we are instructed in the truth of who we are. Where we once filled our imagination with lies and manifested a false image of our self, we now willingly choose to fill it with the spiritual attributes of our true Self, as an immortal fractal of the divine Mind. Comprehending our true Likeness as one made in the likeness of God, we are given a choice to see something different within, therefore the ability to manifest a different reality without. It gives us the ability to manifest a reality of peace instead of fear.

Through the faculty of imagination, we engage the attributes of the Prayer of I Am as our own, in the present moment. The Prayer of I Am brings all the images we’ve made about ourself to the Truth. By imagining we are the divine attributes, the mind resurrects the words of Truth giving life to our inner talk (cause), which then reflects truth and life into our experiential reality (effect). Because we don’t know how our present moment will express the spiritual attributes, we don’t concern ourselves with how these attributes will translate into our reality. We rest in divine emergence and imagine ourselves in the present moment as an expression of the divine attributes.

Our true Self is expressed as we let the Prayer of I Am settle into our powerful imagination. In this way, we become as a child and through our mind find entrance into the Kingdom of Peace. Imagination gives us the ability to rewrite the story of our life according Truth, and thus change reality as we’ve always known it. It’s a significant creative step within our mind that enables us to take the Light we perceive within and shine it outward.


 

“Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.” ~ Mark 10:15

“Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.” ~ Ephesians 5:1

My passion is cultivating a deep relationship with God and helping others to do the same. I LOVE sharing with others insights that God has taught me and hearing what God has taught them... thus my blog, Stirring the Deep. My focus is on a relationship, not a religion. Life is in the relationship. I believe in a balance and unity of body, mind and spirit. I feel it's important to nurture all three for they all affect each other. I try to live in the present, where the Holy Spirit is. And I try to do all with the motive of love. I've come to believe life is a journey and not a destination. It isn't about perfection, is it about growth.

  1. The Lord has called people to be softened to His love, when He has spoken the truth in love, and when He has shown mercy on the souls of this time, who hide their sins, or hide their selves from the face of the Lord. then, whenever we take the responsibility of our souls upon ourselves, to think or to imagine that “we” are the beginning and end of our existence, the Lord will allow the enemy of God, to buffet your life, if He loves you He will allow falseness to bring an awakening to reality in our lives. Whatever you believed, will pale in comparison, to knowing the Savior of Mankind, Jesus, the Light of the World.
    Jesus said, Our Father, which art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name, Thy Kingdom come Thy will Be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. So this is the prayer He asked us to pray. He said, Lead Us Not into temptation, but deliver us From Evil. Only God Himself can set you free from evil. Don’t wait for an awakening that comes from evil, to bring you to Him. When we go aside from Him, if He loves us He removes His hand of protection, until, we can find Him again. Choose Him First, If He Loves you.

  2. For inquiring minds …

    The “Prayer of I Am” is the prayer that Jesus spoke in Matthew 6:13 when its underlying meaning is reveal by the Spirit of Truth:

    “Our Father in heaven,
    Hallowed be Your name” (I Am + divine attributes)

    “Your kingdom come.
    Your will be done
    On earth as it is in heaven.” (Proclaims one will uniting God’s will, our will and our will for others .. “I Am” is spoken as one for God, us and others. It signifies one will, God’s will moving through us all in harmony beginning with God. It’s the prayer of oneness)

    “Give us this day our daily bread.” (Our daily instruction in Truth that is centered around the name “I Am” and its meaning, the divine attributes because this understanding is connected to all Truth)

    “And forgive us our debts,
    As we forgive our debtors.” (This expresses a desire for Oneness with all, which is the result of forgiveness, as spoken in the Prayer of I Am – no separation between us and God or us and others)

    “And do not lead us into temptation,
    But deliver us from the evil one. (Deliver us from the temptation of attaching attributes not of God thus not of our true Self or others to this name. Deliver us from believing we are the false images (evil one) we imagined that reflect attributes opposite of the divine attributes.)
    For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen” (This is the power of I Am and giving power to I Am)

    Thank you Mishai for prompting this. When we are instructed by the Spirit of Truth, our understanding grows progressively deeper. This deepening understanding enables us to see Truth from a myriad of perspectives and in a plethora of symbols (including words) because we go far beyond any symbol, image, story, or exterior representation.

    • I think a good question to ask would be about the word Love. When you have spoken the word love, Rachel do you want people to then ‘try to assign a meaning to that’? About what you mean when you say love? Do people have to have a mystical mindset to understand what you are meaning by the word?
      So are ‘you’ attaching meanings to it that you need to be delivered of?
      I think the simpler path is to stay out of romanticizing or using imagery to create a world, and just simply use the imagery to describe what’s real. I think that’s what Jesus was doing. I think He was describing reality, and not creating a mystical sphere. If I am correct, if I have the true essence of it, then I think I Am becoming one with love, and not loving the imagery of the mystical I Am.
      Let me know if you think it is deep enough? I’ll let you be the judge of how deep it is. If I’m understanding it. When you say love, or write about it, is every one going to get it, or do you have to assign to them or to this person or to that person that they understand you?
      Can I understand you, or Am I ‘just to low, and basic to get it’?
      What imagery are you assigning to me? I think that’s a good question? Do I have a reality that’s good enough for you, or do I have to find you in some mystical sense, to know you?

  3. For meditation and enhancement studies in etymology.
    It is important to meditate and study into a phrase such a “False Images”.
    Without the substantive nature of words carrying direct and inherent meaning, one would only be left with “false images”. Every word spoken would be a false image.
    If one assigns false images to the words of the Lord, calling the words doubles, this is saying that Jesus believed Himself to be a mystic, and that his pronouncements about evil are indeterminable.
    These are the very things that Jesus fought against. He fought against evil, no an imagination of evil, or an imaginary evil. This is what makes His sayings “deep”, because his discourses discover the deepness of reality, not the deepness of an imaginary world of imagery.
    Said in the vernacular, Jesus always said what he meant and meant what He said.
    This is what makes Him a deeper revolutionary because He was not inclined to opine through mysticism, nor afraid to state the Truth.
    The word of the Lord are what people tie the images of mysticism to, but not Jesus.
    Jesus life and teaching are the exact polar opposite. The concrete reality of the spirit world.
    When people have fanaticized about spirituality by using false imagery, Jesus used the concrete imagery that describes the truth about the demonic, and Angelic world. This subject can never be described by mystics because there is no reality to imagery. An image is a phantom. Hence the truth is reversed by the Lord, He uses imagery to describe reality, rather than recreating the definitions of imagery by mysticism.
    Jesus way is much deeper.

  4. Jesus spoke to people on the level in which God had them open to…or closed off from and on their level that they could understand or “should” understand. Jesus spoke many truths that the disciples couldn’t understand “until” after Pentecost when the spirit of truth was given to them so that they then could move from the carnal to the spiritual mind. Jesus spoke in many mysteries and parables so that the masses “ could not” understand because it was not their time of revelation to the truth for we each are given truth in our order. We each understand as the spirit gives us revelation from the spoken word to Christ, the spirit Word. Love is not confined to ones own definition of it, we grow to it as we are obedient to the “ways” of God, and not merely to what we think it means by a “written” definition. We will only understand love as we become the nature of it. God gives us a knowledge or a shadow of the true in order to seek it…until we become it. We first see as through a glass darkly..and then we will be seen as we are seen (our face to God’s face) for we will move from the knowledge of the thing unto the very thing itself. Love is the character and fullness of who God is. We pursue love as we are given the desire to “know Him.” “Know” in the biblical since is a word which includes participation in it. In the 60 fold realm it is an exterior knowledge, a thing to know about, however as we move into the 100 fold realm of understanding, we move into the participation and the being of the word. We move from knowing to being. In reality, many words have a duality of meaning and the meaning of them depends on one’s maturity level between their growth from their carnal mind to their spiritual mind…
    So, what is love? God is love and we will know Him when we become as He is. We must keep our desires simple and uncomplicated. Pray and desire to love as God loves for this is the substance of the kingdom of God. First seek the kingdom (love) of God and all else will be added to you. Love is not about what is good for me, it what is good for you, for if everyone has matured to giving, everyone will receive. It is only in the giving do ones receive for God was the first to give…so the pattern is giving…as we have received.

  5. Love is the nature and eternal essence of God. No man can explain it to another, but a man can give as he has received.

    • When one develops his great God-given faculty of love he will have the power to create and bring forth whatsoever his purified, spiritual vision of love beholds. He will produce the divine harmonies his spiritually exalted ears of love are trained to hear as those dynamic tones of creation are released right within his own heart. He will then fulfill and accomplish whatsoever his love-inspired lips may speak under the inspiration of his more exalted vision……..AMEN….

  6. So, Jesus Christ is the King of the Kingdom of Love. He is the Lord of the nature of love. He is the embodiment and the possessor of it. And He is One with His Word. And one with Light.
    When one accepts Him into His heart their is a miracle of heart referred to as ‘being Born Again’.
    Out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water, and his name is written in the Book of Life in Heaven.
    Heaven is where the Throne of the Father is. The Eternal God, and Jesus at His right hand who will grant
    passage into Heaven to those who receive Love. He is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End.
    When you receive this Miracle, you will never be the same. You will be a New Creation.

    • MISHAI…….. ALL THAT WAS GENERIC BIBLE SCRIPTURE…. NOW TELL ME WHATS DOES MEAN IN I AM TERMS…..THAT IS WHERE THE INSPIRATION COMES FULL FORCE….

      • I Am not a follower of the principle I Am. I Am not being smart, in reference to your question, I Am just being honest. I Am was mentioned by God to Moses in a message to unbelievers, Egyptians, it wasn’t meant to be a principle that I Am aware of personally “to live by”. If it was, that would be Generic too. But, I Am a follower of the Father God. Inspiration can come in any format or relationship where someone is sharing from their heart. All the sayings of God are from the Heart of Jesus so the story is a living principle that I was sharing, it is information about how to be saved which is the most living principle of all principles. His word is sharper than any two edged sword, as you can imagine any word from God would be. Hope this is an answer to your statement.

  7. MISHAI…..AGAIN WHAT YOU JUST SAID COULD NEVER EVER BE CALLED INSPIRATION…DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE I AM MEANS FROM GODS SPIRITUAL REVELATION INSPIRATION…..
