    This is an intriguing topic. Visualizing, imagining, creating images and ideas of how to work with our fears – or what we want to accomplish in life – can be a powerful strategy for achievement and growth, according to many writers, coaches and artists.

    “Fairy tales were created not only to entertain, but they addressed spiritual subjects for me. Not to any canon or religion, just what it is to be human. They made manifest troubles that happen inside the soul of the human being.”

    That is from the post Guillermo del Toro on the power of fairytales. More in my post: Visualization, protective dragons and higher achievement.
