Imagination in Meditation.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


Hi Deepak, What I’d like to know is: what do I do about my active imagination while I meditate? Often I have visualized many different things, from flowers unfolding to drops of water on leaves… they are mostly beautiful images but they keep blossoming up. I understand that I am supposed to let go of them and return to the mantra & my breath but why do they haunt me so? I fear if I avoid them during my meditations that I will not have time to embrace them throughout the rest of the day? I believe that they are often the source of abundant creativity… am I wrong??


These vivid images are the by-product of the deepening process of your mind settling down during meditation. They occur as you mind comes out of silence back into conscious thought, so they merely indicate that it is time to come back to your meditation practice and dive down to the depths of silence again. It’s okay to let go of these imaginations and return to your breath. You won’t lose any creative opportunities afterward. In fact, by letting them go, you are allowing yourself to re-experience the direct source of creativity in your higher self, and that is what will truly help you creatively the rest of the day.
