Are you one of many people that wonder what their future holds? Do you catch yourself saying ‘If only I could just look into a crystal ball, for proof, certainty, a sign or something else that can let me know that ‘I’m on the right path’ or can tell me what to do next.’
Whether it’s in the area of relationships, business, career, finance, family, travel or another area of your life, we often are taught to look for external guidance from others as to what to do next. Seeking others approval, putting our trust in others before we trust ourselves, our own intuition, our own inner knowing.
Because let’s face it, who knows YOU better than YOU?
So the ONLY way to predict your future, to know what the future holds, is to CREATE it yourself first, from the ‘inside out’. How do I do that you might ask?
Well let’s look at an acorn for an example. It starts off in the ground, develops roots, and then it comes up through the earth, growing its trunk, branches and leaves turning into an oak tree. For the tree to grow, to develop more leaves, you have to tend to and nurture the roots with water and nutrients. So this is focussing on the ‘internal’ what is not visible to the naked eye, as it’s underground, rather than the leaves which are on the outside.
As humans we are no different. Think back to a time when you imagined, day dreamed about something happening in the future. Perhaps it was a new bike when you were a kid, a holiday, living a certain way…..
What did you do?
You had a clear picture in your minds eye, you probably played it over and over like a movie scene. In that moment it felt soooo real, and you felt really happy about it coming true. So much so it actually did, right?! All of this was an internal thought with an ‘elevated emotion – a feeling of passion, love, happiness, joy or gratitude.
So now you have ‘proof’ that you’ve done it in the past. All you need to do now, is replicate it for the areas of your life that you might feel a bit uncertain about.
So let me ask you something, if I was a genie with an Aladdin’s lamp and I could grant you 3 wishes what would you ask for?
If money and time were no object what would you say?
Start there. Start now. Create your vision for your future from within. Expand the image in your mind. Imagine it on a movie screen and you’re in the movie, after all you’re the lead actor in your own life.
- What can you see?
- What are you feeling?
- Who’s with you?
- What can you hear?
- What are you saying?
- Can you smell anything?
- Can you touch something in your surroundings?
Trust and listen to your intuition, your soul, because it knows where you’re heading and will continue to give you nudges along the way.
Then when you have a clear vision of your future, take daily inspired action moving towards making that vision your new reality.
Wish It … Dream It … Do It!
