|St. Ignatius and St. Aloysius Gonzaga, gazing upon the Sacred Heart of Jesus|
St. Ignatius of Loyola personally experienced the power of the imagination to be guided by the Holy Spirit in prayer, bringing him closer to God. This trust in the imagination as a gift from God (as influenced/inspired by Sacred Scripture) is a cornerstone of Ignatian spirituality. Here are some links to follow, including videos, etc. to teach you more about this way of prayer. Have fun!
