Training the Imagination

By Harold Klemp

Your imagination is like a muscle. You’re going to have to train it day after day. What you are actually doing is learning how to become aware and observant of yourself in a different state of consciousness.

One way is to go to different places in your imagination. Maybe you’ll want to re-create a plane ride: I’m sitting in the airplane seat. What do I see? What do the people look like? What happens when I walk down the aisle? What is on the food tray?

As you go through the day, you’ll find yourself looking at objects and making mental notes, because that physical information about the dresser or the clothes in your closet will be helpful when you sit down in your chair and try to visualize it for Soul Travel.
