Imagination

Naturally we are visual beings. We were created by God with the ability to “see” things mentally. There is nothing you can do without imagination. Imagination is what aids our memory. For example when someone asks you to direct them to your home, you have a mental picture so you can direct them using the image in your mind. Albert Einstein said “your imagination is your preview of life’s coming attractions”. Your imagination shows you what you are going to experience in the physical later. You can’t stop imagining, but you can choose what to imagine about. When you imagine negative things you are in a state of worry and when you imagine positive things you are in a state of faith. Fear and faith both operate in the realm of imagination. Imaginations are seeds of things that will be born later in our lives. Therefore conception takes place in our imaginations. What we imagine about for so long bears fruit in our lives.

Creative people use imagination to come up with new things; they let their minds to imagine most of the time. Your imagination is the creative part of you. Our imaginations are the byproduct of where our focus is. If you focus on negative things, you attract darkness to yourself but when you focus on positive things you attract positive things. As we grow, we need to learn to bring our imaginations to our control. The imaginations you have about yourself determine how you see yourself. The way you see yourself, determines how others see you. Imaginations determine how you behave when you face a similar situation which you saw in your imaginations.
