Hill describes two different types of Imagination:

"The imaginative faculty functions in two forms. One is known as “synthetic imagination,” and the other as “creative imagination.”

SYNTHETIC IMAGINATION:—Through this faculty, one may arrange old concepts, ideas, or plans into new combinations. This faculty creates nothing. It merely works with the material of experience, education, and observation with which it is fed. It is the faculty used most by the inventor, with the exception of the who draws upon the creative imagination, when he cannot solve his problem through synthetic imagination.

CREATIVE IMAGINATION:—Through the faculty of creative imagination, the finite mind of man has direct communication with Infinite Intelligence. It is the faculty through which “hunc hes” and “inspirations” are received. It is by this faculty that all basic, or new ideas are handed over to man.

is through this faculty that thought vibrations from the minds of others are received. It is through this faculty that one individual may “tune in,” or communicate with the subconscious minds of other men."

 

Following Monday's call where Michael led me to many AHA moments, I would like to elaborate on this concept of imagination.  Synthetic Imagination takes place in our "comfort zone"-the thoughts and isdeas with which we are comfortable.

Creative Imagination can flourish wnen we "think outside the box" and step out of our the usual and familiar.  Taking risks and following hunches will lead to results previously only dreamed of.
