Our Imagination Station: The Unique Power of Our Imagination

Updated on July 7, 2017

When I was Little...

Digging a hole to China was a huge effort for my siblings and I years ago. Never once did we get any further than one foot down into the ground. The great thing about it was that we tried. We imagined that we could do it. It was exciting to be on such a quest as this. Never once did our mother tell us we couldn't do it.

Zip Lining was A figment of Someone's Imagination

How could this be? Zip lining once laid dormant in someone's imagination! Then it came to life. Now it's an enjoyable experience. In my research I found that Albert Einstein said the imagination is more important than knowledge. I tend to agree. Most inventions were once in our imagination. The inventors first had a picture in their minds, then become a reality when they brought it to life.

I See a Giant Sling Shot

Yes, a giant sling shot sounds like a blast! Well, maybe a dangerous one, but so did zip lining before it was perfected. I see us traveling from one side of the city to the other via giant sling shot. That's what I imagined in the wee hours of the morning when I couldn't sleep.

I See The Pacific Ocean Completely Drained

My imagination has gone wild, I'm the first to admit it. I know that God held back the waters of the Red Sea way back when Moses helped the Israelites leave Egypt so why couldn't he drain the Pacific Ocean just for a month? Just imagine what we could find. Treasures in sunken ships that have never before been found, skeletons of the largest whales, pearls galore, and the most colorful shells that ever existed.


Amelia Earhart was an Explorer

Amelia Earhart was America's first woman to fly alone across the Atlantic Ocean. Her disappearance baffled people, but the search has never ceased. A special is airing this Sunday (July 9) on the History channel. A photo of Amelia and her co-pilot has surfaced; it shows them on Marshall Island. It is believed, after all these years, that they were captured by the Japanese. She's been missing since her solo flight in 1937. What does your imagination tell you? Mine tells me that she and her co-pilot lived happily ever after on a romantic island.


Use Your Imagination to be More Creative

My imagination station sometimes gets carried away. Let's just say that it's not very stationary. There are positive ways to use your imagination, at least that's what the experts say. We can use our imagination to be more creative, or we can use them to build a fantasy world that keeps us trapped in our houses. A positive imagination may develop into reality...or not. My parents never did say no to our ideas, but really? A hole to China? I don't think so. What does your imagination tell you?
