"Imagination is the beginning of creation.
You imagine what you desire,
you will what you imagine
and at last, you create what you will."
-- George Bernard Shaw

Perhaps a more accurate way to say the first line of this awesome quote is this: Imagination is creation. We only say the beginning of creation because we have a desire to see it and touch it in our physical presence. Of course, that doesn't mean that it wasn't created until it appears physically, it is simply another way of seeing it.
I think the practice of imagining is one of our greatest powers. To see something in our mind's eye is to be able to mold it and shape it and caress it and delight in it. It is a time to create at will. We are creators. We all have this same power; albeit, we may use is more or less as we choose.
Another way to use our imagination is to take something that exists already in sight of our physical eyes that may not be to our liking and modify it so that it is more perfect for us.
Here's a fun practice from Abraham, Esther Hicks. Play the "Wouldn't It Be Nice. . ." game. Wouldn't it be nice to ______? Wouldn't it be nice if _______? Wouldn't it be nice when ________? What a fun way to see things differently even as they are what they are. No pushing against. No stress. No pulling on the rope. Just a fun and effective way to use our imagination.
Imagine The Possibilities.
