Your imagination changes your state.
Try this practice: Be a flower, notice how you feel. Feel your beauty, your love, your nurturing. Then be a lion. Feel the strength, the power, your soft and majestical paws. Then be a mouse, look around you. Notice how you feel. You are small and fast and curious. You are quick.
We have choice to change our feeling state. We can either log into higher dimensions to do so, or we use our imagination. Imagination unlocks the higher energies to take us exactly where we want to go or be. This is real.
