Your Desired Image: How to Redefine Yourself Through Imagination

Have you ever wanted to change something about yourself? Maybe you have a vision of being a bit different, more in line with your deepest aspirations. Bentinho shares an insightful approach to this. He suggests that we all have an image or a vision of what we want to be, even if it’s just a slight improvement.

This vision might be very spiritual, like achieving a state of peaceful mind, or more material, like having a certain lifestyle. But regardless of its nature, it’s something you’re moving towards. Even if you think changing is not important, that thought itself is a change, a vision.

Now, let’s do something interesting. Forget your current history for a moment. What if you had a different past? What did this desired version of you do yesterday? A year ago? This exercise isn’t just about daydreaming. It’s about tuning into a different frequency, a parallel version of yourself. Your imagination is like a radio, tuning into various versions of your reality.

Knowing this, you can start to reimagine your past. What if the things you want in the future were already experiences in your past? This process of ‘fake it till you make it’ can be powerful. By changing your past in your mind, you start to change your present effortlessly. You don’t have to fight against a history of doubts or feel like a hypocrite because this new version of you has already lived those experiences.

This practice isn’t about denying reality, but about expanding it. It’s about accessing a different aspect of your existence that’s just as real as your current one. When you start remembering your desired experiences as if they’ve already happened, you’ll find a shift in your current awareness. This shift brings peace, trust, confidence, and a deeper connection with yourself.

Try this in your daily life. Whenever you’re stressed or doubting your worth, just imagine a different past. It might feel strange at first, but with time, you’ll start to feel its reality. And when someone asks about your history, you might just smile and say, “Which one?”

Spiritual Reference:

This concept is reminiscent of a Biblical verse, Romans 4:17: “As it is written: ‘I have made you a father of many nations.’ He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not.”
