I know what it looks like to imagine something in one’s mind, a figure, scene, object, persons etc. I suspect a vision is so much more than imagination. We do not imagine visions. I think a vision actually looks real and there is no doubt in the viewer’s mind that the image is visible and real. A strange feeling.
It’s different than imagination. It is sudden and startling when it is realized a vision has come. It’s fleeting but remains long enough to recognize it presence and what it is describing. It removes all forms of consciousness’ from your mind except the vision itself. It causes 100% involuntary attention until it leaves. The afterthought leaves no doubt and it is not hard to figure out what happened and why.
I am hesitant to discuss it further. I wondered if anyone could verify the definition I just gave. It is the best I could describe. Has anyone had a similar experience? I would discuss it further if I were confident I am not fooling myself.
