Sharing some profound thoughts from @ranacreek
There is something elusive about the creative process. Our inspirations lead us to access creativity through unique ways. As designers, you never know when the next inspiration will arise, whether it be a beautiful color palette from a sunset or an image of a lone cactus in the desert. The magic in this, is everyday life can be a creative treasure hunt. Wishing you a creative weekend filled with inspiration! cre•ate (kriˈeɪt)
v. -at•ed, -at•ing,
1. to cause to come into being, as something unique.
2. to evolve from one's imagination, as a work of art or an invention.

Lets start with this..#powerofimagination
.. visualize your dream eventually you will make it happen.
Ps: Pls ignore my grumpy tutor's hand..hehe
You use your imagination each day, even if you think you don’t. No matter how big or small your accomplishments are, it all began in your imagination.
You can use it as much or as little as you want, but it’s the starting point for everything that happens in your life, from what you eat, to what you wear, to what you do. It all begins as pictures in your mind.
Be sure to harness the full power of your imagination to dream up bigger and better things for yourself. It’s the part of you that taps into the infiniteness of the universe, so don’t neglect it.

One of the first things I do with my clients is walk through their dream future.
Dreaming was such a normal thing for us as kids, using our imaginations to turn a cardboard box into a pirate ship, but then we grow up and become super unimaginative— trying to hide it under the guise of being realistic or practical.
People look at their resume instead of their interests and innate passion and potential to define their future. That’s not practical. It’s stupid. And in the process we close off opportunities and start living so far below what we’re capable of.
When people start to dream, their brain immediately tries to figure out the HOW. And guess what happens when we ask our brains how to do something we’ve never done before? It freaks the f*** out. Of course you don’t immediately know how— if you already knew how to create your big ambitious dream you’d be living it.
To get to where you want to go requires A LOT of thinking, a lot of problem solving and growth, but the first step? The dream?
Stop trying to think so much. Just imagine. Just DREAM.
We are not limited by our environment, current situation, our past, or who we think we are today. ⠀⠀⠀
💆The power that we have been blessed with that we may not be aware of is the power of imagination. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀🗯️Imagination is an intentional and creative process of drawing mental images of the kind of person we wish to become or kind of life we wish to have. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🙅No one can take that from you .. we are free to choose our thoughts and mental images at any given moment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀🎆And the beautiful thing is that, what we imagine and think about all day will eventually become our reality. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🤷So..How are you utelizing this mental power?
The power to think, imagine and wonder is a huge asset that humans have been gifted with. We can introspect, retrospect, analyse, categorise and what not with our ability to think. It’s the reason we are the species on top of the chain today.
Here’s the catch though- we only ever think about the troubles and struggles that life has laid out for us. We continue drawing our minds back to the problems we are facing, all the time cursing our most unfortunate luck and questioning fate like, “Why is it always me?” Our troubles consume us so much that we end up stuck, begging for a solution instead of looking for it ourselves. But here’s the thing, if every solution, every answer came to us on a silver platter, our brains would become vestigial. Our power to imagine will start fading. Our ability to think, analyse, choose- one of our most valuable abilities- won’t be put to use and thus cease to exist someday. Imagine a world with a pre-existing answer to every question ever! It would be so monotonous! It wouldn’t be new. And it wouldn’t be ours too; we didn’t build it out of our imagination.
Tonight, sit back, shut the world and give yourself some time. Give a thought to everything you are doing or going through and how you want to make it better. Think about where you want to be and what you want to do and how you want to achieve it. THINK! Use your brain. Find YOUR solutions. Find YOUR NEW ways. Think about every question life has put to you and find YOUR answers! Find your calling.
When you do, trust it enough to pursue it. - - - - - - - - -
Here’s food for thought. Food for your brain. Something to open a new perspective. After all, who needs Monday for motivation?? ;)
Wishing you all peace, positivity and power!

"The source and center of all man's creative power... is his power of making images, or the power of imagination." ~ Robert Collier
Is it winks and smiles or gets angry and grinds his teeth?
Reb Nosson recorded that after #rebbenachman
taught lesson 25, he said "now we need to call the Evil One by a new name. It's time to call it the כּחַ הַמְדַמֶּה (the power of imagination)". Rav Avraham Chazan explains from the Talmud that the Yetzer Hara (the evil inclination) has seven names. These seven attributes of the Evil One contend with the seven attributes of of the seven shepherds. Until the birth of Rebbe Nachman, there were only these seven attributes. But with the revelation of Rebbe Nachman there is now an eighth attribute called Binah Ila'ah (higher understanding), so the opposing force has to fight back with a new name, the כּחַ הַמְדַמֶּה.
Everything the Rebbe taught can be summarized in two words - simple faith. He foresaw the atheism that was starting to spread and he taught like no other to believe in ones self, believe in the tzaddikim and believe in Hashem.
By renaming the yetzer hara Rebbe Nachman taught us something amazingly unique about faith. We must use our imagination to believe. We have to paint pictures in our minds and hearts and dream with certainty. Believing in Moshiach, in world peace, and in our personal salvation seems impossible. And you know what? With mere cerebral faith it is. It's incumbent upon us to see past what we can understand and believe in our imagination as if it is reality. Because once we do, it will be the reality.
Chanukah is all about miracles. Why did the maccabees go out and fight with the Greeks? Are they nuts? Why were they relying on a miracle? They must have imagined they could win. They weren't relying on miracles, they were living in a different reality, the eighth reality, the eight candles, the higher understanding of the Rebbe.
Why did Rebbe Nachman appear on the scene now? Because we all feel so stuck. We're stuck in our jobs, in our bad behaviors, in our unhealthy relationships and in our poverty. But we're really only stuck in our limited minds. We're so pessimistic. We need to imagine and believe things can change. That’s Chanukah and that’s how miracles happen! Happy Chanukah 🕎 #chanukah #breslov #believeinmiracles #powerofimagination
I think my car and this dream house look nice together 😁 I will leave it here for visualization, even if I like modern and minimalism. But still this house and sunset light create unbelievable atmosphere 💫💫💫
‘Capricindy’ - This is a personal piece which I’m doing (it’s almost done) for a very special friend who is the most beautiful Capricorn I’ve met. She’s my alma gemela, my spiritual sister, my soulmate, my bestie, my partner in crime. We met in Egypt in 1999 and we connected on a higher level right there in the Sinaï desert, and we never parted. This is a gift from me to her, it’s a little tribute to our friendship. It’s a token of my love for her and appreciation of her love to me. -
I share this as an example, you can do this too for your bestie, your partner, your child, mother, sister, yourself. I can do a personalized portrait of your favorite human. -
Send me a PM if you are interested!
