The thing about visions is that they don’t need to be realistic.
Because if they are realistic, to your mind as it is right now, then they are precisely that: a mirror of your mind as it is right now. Rather than a mirror of your magnificent future self. Committing to a big vision is what s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-s you, what forces you to grow.
You could even start with who you want to be, rather than what you want to manifest, and then consider what kind of life this future you would like.
WE ALL NEED TO BE DOING THIS MORE THAN EVER AT THE MOMENT.
Consciously creating our lives is more important than ever in these freaky times. Otherwise you/we will go under. Governments/multinationals/banks/dark forces – call them what you will – their vision for us is a hideous dystopia where we are essentially zombies doing what we’re told.
OUR VISIONS NEED TO BE BIGGER THAN THEIRS. MORE BEAUTIFUL. MORE CLEARLY DEFINED. MORE COMMITTED TO.
In Western society we have all been conditioned to focus on the external world, rather than our internal vision. So when looking at dreams and goals we’re conditioned to focus on what is possible, what is realistic, what we see around us, what other people are doing… As opposed to looking deeply inside ourselves and teasing out how we truly want to express our love and energy in the world.
So if you want to create a retreat centre, for example, don’t just think about other retreat centres, how much money you have, the connections you have, mortgage rates, credit scores. Instead feel into what it is within your vision that you truly want, that matches your magnificent future self.
Ditto with relationships. Don’t just look at who is out there on dating sites. Focus instead on your internal perspective of what you truly want.
Sure, looking at potential properties or partners on the net can help to fire your imagination about what is possible. But do bear in mind that what you are seeing online right now is a mirror of who you are now, rather than your magnificent future self.
