In the book “Ask & It Is Given” Esther & Jerry Hicks explains how essential it is to use your imagination.
Imagination according to the dictionary means: the faculty or action of forming new ideas, or images or concepts of external objects not present to the senses.
if you think about it, that is the same definition of Faith. Faith is being sure of the things we hope for and knowing that something is real even if we do not see it (www.biblegateway.com).The way I see it, using our imagination is using our Faith.
According to the book instead of living in the present and worry about what you don’t want, they offer an alternative! Think about what you want! Think about how you want the situation to go. Once you think about it, notice the feeling you have while you are thinking about it. At you smiling? Are you feeling good about the thoughts that are crossing your mind? According to the book, if you think of a specific thought for 17 seconds, other thoughts of like mind will come to play. That 17 minutes will become longer and longer until you are exercising your Faith/Imagination faculty without even noticing it.
Try it! I find myself much happier as I use my Faith/Imagination Faculty to think and feel about how I want to see my life. The BEST part? I am manifesting some GREAT things in my life!
