imagination

A Quote by Gabrielle Roth on brown eyes, choices, courage, ears, granddaughter, grandmother, headaches, imagination, medicine, natural medicine, and shape

I've also used my imagination to help others heal themselves.  I once went to visit a Hopi rattke maker in Arizona.  It took all of my intuitive powers to find her house up high in the mountains, having to make choices of which way to go every hundred feet or so.  When I arrived, her granddaughter was crying in pain, holding her ears.  She had had a terrible earache for twenty-four hours.  Instinctively, I approached the five-year-old and told her, "I'm going to put my hand on your ear and take away the pain.  I want you to see the pain.  What does it look like?  What shape is it?  What color?  What does it sound like?  Does it smell?  How would you feel if you touched it?  Now I want you to imagine it leaving your ear and entering my hand."  She looked up at me with huge brown eyes full of trust.  I put my hand on her ear, held it there a few minutes, and then ran to the door and blew the pain out of my hand and closed the door.  Within seconds the pain was gone.  Her grandmother, the rattle maker, stood there grinning from ear to ear.  "That's what my grandfather would have done," she said, "He was a shaman."

In a few minutes, the room seemed to fill with people.  Someone placed a chair in the middle of the room and people took turns sitting in it, asking for a healing.  Headaches, sores, back pains, and so on.  In each case I trusted myself to do what came naturally.  It's a day I'll never forget, as I discovered the range of my healing powers as they were drawn out by people for whom healing power was natural medicine.

Imagination is powerful.  Imagination is healing.  All you need is the courage to visualize what should be, and then give yourself to its creation.  The result may not be what you expected, but it will be right.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on women, imagination, creativity, witchcraft, hysteria, wisdom, and wise women

Our imagination is larger than the world around us; we go beyond our limits.  This used to be called 'witchcraft,' but fortunately things have changed, otherwise we would both already have been burned at the stake.  When they stopped burning women, science found an explanation for our behavior, normally referred to as 'female hysteria.'  We don't get burned anymore, but it does cause problems, especially in the workplace.  But don't worry, eventually they'll call it 'wisdom.'

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on stars, imagination, and wonder

Forget everything you've ever learned about the stars and they'll once more be transformed into angels, or into children, or into whatever you want to believe at that moment.  It won't make you more stupid – after all, it's only a game – but it could enrich your life.

A Quote by Oscar Fingall O'Flahertie Wills Wilde on love, imagination, wisdom, loneliness, alone, and life

Love is fed by the imagination, by which we become wiser than we know, better than we feel, nobler than we are: by which we can see Life as a whole: by which, and by which alone, we can understand others in their real as in their ideal relations.

Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900)

A Quote by Robert Grudin on imagination, elegance, grace, beauty, pleasure, love, and work

What liberates the imagination is the sense that work in its theory and practice holds aesthetic possibilities, that jobs can be elegantly conceived and gracefully done. This sense of beauty unlocks feelings of pleasure and love and breaks down the barrier between worker and work and commit to work not merely the "thinking" consciousness but the full resources of mind.
