This question is marked "community wiki".

When I close my eyes and imagine something, it's really dark and shadowy. But I've heard of people who can see as bright and clearly with their eyes closed as they are open. So how can I enhance my imagination so that it's vividly brighter, colorful, and even more tangible than the dark shadowy images that I currently see? Thanks. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

@kevin32, I'm closing your question because you tried to bypass the 1,000 character minimum limit. The limit exists to prevent abuse and we enforce it strictly. There was a clear warning on the "Ask Question" page that questions padded with irrelevant sentences will be closed. Every question can have more genuine detail added (even just with examples) so I suggest you re-ask your question with appropriate detail. Thanks

There's a simple trick that i use quite often to stimulate my imagination, and the same trick also works when i'm searching for a visual image to fit in with what i'm saying ... that trick is to use other peoples imagination.

Search in google "images" and you'll be presented with a whole host of different images. For example searching google images "put color into my life" i came across this picture

that i like, now i have a picture on which i can focus and memorize and reproduce, in color in my imagination, then allow your imagination to wander a little, change the color from blue to yellow, add a few birds ... you can end up with a completely different colored scene by the time you have finished, have fun with it :)
