As a child, I was always a dreamer. I made up stories, people, words, and anything my mind would let me do. There are benefits of imagination for children, but what about for adults? If we can envision how we want our future, the chances increase that we will obtain it. Isn’t this imagination? I think it is.
3 Benefits of Imagination for Children
- Increase creativity
- Increase in language usage
- Increase in the ability to express positive and negative feelings and understand them better
3 Benefits of Imagination for Adults
- Visualize a better future
- Help you direct your subconscious in achieving a goal
- Can decrease pain and anxiety
Benefits of Imagination for Children and Adults
Why are children not as scared as adults to try new things or to learn a new language? They haven’t had the time to build the negative thoughts in their heads that remind them that they can’t do something. Adults have had years to build positive and negative information in our heads. Our subconscious minds use imagination and feeling to communicate. We can practice in our minds without actually completing an action. This is a positive experience for our minds.
The conscious mind is logical and is influenced by our beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors that are programmed. We can program positive beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors in our subconscious thoughts to help our conscious mind achieve our goals. Reprogramming our subconscious minds through imagination or visualization of where we see ourselves helps us to go beyond our limitations.
“Reprogramming old beliefs eliminates negative patterns. Although you still remember the negative event, the emotional response changes; the attachment you once had is essentially eliminated. When you change your belief you change your response to life and what you believe you can achieve.”
Imagine / Visualize
Who are you at the core? Are you that person today? If you don’t feel like you are, imagine who you want to be and never forget it. You will get there.
Have a wonderful day!

I took my three younger children to the Lied Discovery Museum. They all used their imaginations, but my youngest daughter (4 years old), Kayzle, had the wildest imagination like always.
