You may have been told or have said it yourself to someone ” It is your imagination. You are imagining things.”
Imagination is defined as, “The ability to imagine things that are not real; the ability to form a picture in your mind of something that you have not seen or experienced; the ability to think of new things, or something that only exists or happens in your mind.”
How does this differ from intuition? Well, there are many ideas and definitions regarding intuition ranging from insights, feelings, thoughts about something or someone that allows one to draw a conclusion without being aware of the source. Some refer to it as an idea that seems to appear out of nowhere. Others refer to as drawing information, ideas, feelings, thoughts.
Intuition and Imagination Separate Processes?
One question to think about is are these two totally separate processes? Is there an intersection where imagination and intuition meet, shake hands, intersect? Take, for example, this food cart in Portland, Oregon. (See pictures below.) Did the owner of this food cart use his/her imagination to create this business and sprinkle it with a dash of insight that helped with practicalities menu items, prices, location, customer service etc.
I invite you to think about your own life. Do the two play a role in your decision-making, ingredients in your vision/visions for something?
Use Your Imagination!
By the way, whatever or whoever’s process went into making this food cart a reality, the food is really good. Not that this has anything to do with vision and intuition, or does it? Use your imagination!
