mind's eye (plural mind's eyes)

  1. The ability to picture an image mentally through imagination.
    I'm sure the image I had in my mind's eye wasn't a thing like it really looked.
    • M.K. Gandhi, The Story of My Experiments with Truth, translated by Mahadev Desai, Part I, chapter iii[1]:
      My father put on a brave face in spite of his injuries, and took full part in the wedding. As I think of it, I can even today call before my mind's eye the places where he sat as he went through the different details of the ceremony. Little did I dream then that one day I should severely criticize my father for having married me as a child.
