How my Grandkids learned creative visualization and trained their imagination.
We created the Dandelion Story.
When my grandkids were little, we always went for a walk in summer in the meadow and around the pond. They liked the flowers and butterflies and noticed the bees and the frog.
Creative visualization and imagination are essential skills.
In winter, I often told them this story to bring them to sleep. Sometimes it took longer because they remembered and asked
questions and could very well visualize. I had to hold their hands and tell them the story always in the German language.
Now, here it is The Dandelion Story.
In the morning, we go into the meadow; there are many colorful flowers in summer blue, white, yellow, and these tiny little pink ones. We see the butterflies around them drinking the nectar, white, yellow, orange, and these beautiful tiny blue ones. The sun is shining, and the air is buzzing with all the bees, flies, and butterflies, and birds are here as well, sitting on the trees and
Near the pond, the mother frog comes and says: “Good morning, come and look; all my babies are now out of the water jumping around.” Congratulation, dear frog, they are all soooo cute” Near the pond is a lot of Dandelions; they like it moist, and we see ladybugs and bees crawling around them.
When the sun is shining, they open the flowers wide, greet the sun, and the bees and butterflies get drunk from the nectar. Some of the dandelions are older and already have white Blowballs. The kids like to blow them away, and tiny little parachutes fly away.
The wind comes and takes the high in the sky. They fly over the woods and the lake and meet other seeds up there and birds.
“Where do you go”? one of the birds asks one of the seeds. “I go as far as the wind blows me and find me a new place to come down.” It looks down on the meadows, trees, houses, and boats until it finds a beautiful place where it would like to grow.
It asks the wind to slow down, and the little parachute brings it down to a beautiful meadow. Here it starts after the next rain to grow tiny little roots into the soil, grow leaves and flower buds, find friends with the bees and beetles and butterflies again, and the circle of Life starts over.
The dandelion story is the story of the dandelion circle of Life.
Is it not the same as in our Life?
I hope you liked the Dandelion Story. It is not the only story we have to tell and imagine but the one we like most.
All there is was always here.
“That which is above is the same as that which is below the macro cosmos is the same as microcosmos,” comes from the Emerald Tablet and embraces the entire system of traditional and modern magic, the tablet by Hermes Trismegistus.
The universe is the same as God; God is the same as man, man is the same as the cell, the cell is the same as the atom, the atom is the same as…and so on, ad infinitum.” This phrase is believed to hold the key to all mysteries. In Sanskrit, Yatha pinde thata brahmande, meaning that the Macrocosm and microcosm are the same; man is created in the image of God. So to know God,
one has to know oneself.
It is the circle of Life; all there is was always here. In this universe, everything is energy that can not be created or destroyed, only transformed.
Many people these days have difficulties imagining things.
What about you? Can you easily imagine and visualize things?
Everything is energy that can not be created or destroyed, only transformed.
What has that to do with visualization and Imagination? We can use this energy to create what we want through visualization, imagination, and emotion, like love or ambition. The Law of Perpetual Transmutation decrees that energy always moves into physical form.
It explains why thoughts we hold in our minds with emotion must move into their physical counterpart. It is a creative process we can learn to use.

Skills Through Creative Visualization And Imagination?
Why are creative visualization and imagination essential skills?
We are often amazed by children’s ability to enjoy every little thing. A child with a rich imagination becomes highly creative. Developing creative thinking also means developing social, emotional, physical, linguistic, and problem-solving skills and the ability to find innovative solutions to everyday problems. Problem-solving skills are one of essential things in life.
Imagination and visualization transform into creativity.
Creativity is a superpower for adults and children alike. Creative people can deal better with times and situations of uncertainty. Therefore, they can adapt to the unexpected and think of solutions in unfamiliar situations. Creative people know how things work and learn easier technical skills, like math and engineering.
Creativity is also crucial for social development. Creative people, young and old alike, are more curious about their world, leading them to engage in social situations independently.
Albert Einstein said: “Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited, imagination encompasses the world, stimulating progress and giving birth to evolution.”
Imagination and creativity can transform into the ability to innovate and create remarkable things that do not yet exist.
Maybe a better world?
Envision and imagine what you want, and Ideas will flow to you.
