Week 17 – Imagination

This week my virtue in the Franklin Make Over is Imagination. At first, I thought this would be easy, I have a 4-year-old daughter with a vivid imagination, she plays games, she has an imaginary pet dog, cat, and every other animal

possible. I have seen so much imagination in her just while she is playing that I have lost count.

It has taken me until today to think about how I can see imagination in Adults. As children we have vivid imaginations, we play, we have imaginary pets & friends and we use it constantly, but as we grow our imagination is put to the side, we do not use it as much or if we do, we keep it to ourselves.

Which then got me thinking how do we as adults use or see imagination? And while I was driving home it hit me. We daydream, our daydreams are our imagination at play. So now that I was aware of this, I can count the times I find myself daydreaming as imagination.

And then when I sat down to write this blog, I did a quick google search to find the Dictionary meaning of imagination. Hold on to your hats people this is where it gets interesting. For the last 17 weeks we have been told by Mark and the MKE team to look up the words we are reading in the dictionary to find out their true meaning. And for the first time in 17 weeks, I did that, and my mind is BLOWN!!!!

Imagination – ‘the faculty or action of forming new ideas, or images or concepts of external objects not present to the senses.’

And now my mind is completely BLOWN!!!! And it all makes sense! I was questioning why the MKE team would want us to focus on Imagination for an entire week, but I am one to trust the process and that is exactly what I was doing UNTIL I read the above meaning for Imagination and I went ‘Holy crap that is exactly what this course is about’ I could not have written a better description of the MKE course if I tried.

The MKE is all about forming new ideas, images, or concepts of external objects not present. Our DMP is literally that! Forming images of external objects not yet present, that is imagining our future as if it is happening right now! When we are writing our DMP we are to write it in the present tense because our subby knows no different, so if we are reading it in the present tense it is as if we are living it now. We are reading it and using our imagination!

I told you it was Mind Blowing!!!

  1. Awesome post. I would have never looked up imagination in the dictionary b/c I thought I knew what it meant. You have blown my mind, and educated me all at the same time. Thank you.

  2. Good Morning Melanie,

    I’m a fellow “MKEer” who’s just realized he’s neglected the Blog Rolls for a while, so I thought I’d drop in and take a look around.

    First time seeing your blog, and the first thing I loved seeing was the picture of you, your hubby, and baby… Absolutely ADORABLE!! ♥️

    Second thing that caught my imagination was where you live… I’d never heard of Fyansford, and – being my inquisitive self – I had to look it up… Come to find out, it’s just after 6am tomorrow where you are, and it just passed 11am here. I looked up flights time (don’t worry, I’m not inviting myself over 🤣) and the quickest flight I see is 26 hours, 4 mins… at a cost of $13,988 round trip. (Yep, I probably DO have too much time on my hands, but these are the things I enjoy discovering.

    And, lastly; I must say I really enjoyed reading your blog, or I wouldn’t have wasted so much of your time with my musings on Fyansford. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being part of the Master Key Experience, and it seems the further I get into it, the quicker revelations come to mind. I’m so happy you have found this to be true in your life as well, and wish you all the best!
