While in meditation or prayer, you will get flashes of insight that allow you to make better decisions. Psychologists call this epiphany ability. The ability to generate epiphanies is something you can absolutely master in your life. Your goal is to begin connecting with the highest and best version of yourself that you can presently imagine.
Albert Einstein has said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
Research on visualization has found that mentally rehearsing something is not enough to reliably create that experience in the future. You need mental imagination and emotional stimulation in order for visualization to be reliable and predictable.
So today, close your eyes and imagine living your best self. What time do you get up in the morning? What do you do to start your day? Visualize yourself doing something that is meaningful to you throughout the day. Then how do you end your day. Close out the visualization with a prayer of gratitude.
How do you feel?
