Real constraints and imaginary constraints

The real constraints and imaginary constraints are particularly recognizable in mediation when someone mentions what blocks or prevents him from being or doing.

[edit] Details

To give sense to this concept, we should wonder:

"What prevents me from doing or being what I say I want to do or be?"

When it concerns things in us - that is often the case - then it is imaginary constraints.

And in this case we can realize that the Platonic thought stating that the world of ideas is more real than the sensible world is very accurate.

Thus, it is possible to list imaginary constraints:

  • Beliefs;
  • Convictions;
  • Certainties;
  • Interpretation of the others' intentions;
  • Assumptions, prejudices, fears...

Real constraints are actually very rare... exceptional... even unlikely.

The mediator must succeed to overcome this perception of reality overcome. In the dynamic of the unimaginable discussion, the mediator brings down the stereotypes and imaginary constraints.
