The part of our brain that deals with our emotions and intuition also controls our imagination. This is the ability to create an image in our mind. We can call up any picture in the Universe, simply by imagining. It's rather like a mental paint box that gives us total freedom to see what we want to see, and go where we want to go. Some people believe that the pictures their imagination creates are reality on another level, from another time and place. People see ships, castles, lakes, and other people, only to discover that they don't exist in what we call reality.
Using your Imagination
Our imagination is a wonderful gift. It can give us a break from the stresses and strains of school work or chores at home! It's through our imagination that we can write wonderful words, draw amazing pictures, and tell tall tales. Some people discourage children from using their imagination, and this makes it harder for them to do so in later life. Luckily we can train our imagination just by practicing. The more we use it the easier it gets!
