I want you to do me a favor and imagine that you're walking up a great mountain, and you're almost near the top. The world is peaceful around you. The sky has almost fallen into pure night, and you can begin to see the stars shining brightly upon the earth.
Sitting at the top of this mountain is your "Future Self". Your "Future Self" is the most actualized version of yourself. They are who you would become, in every capacity, in your wildest imagination (and then some). They are wholly alive, aware, and enlightened; unmotivated by fear, doubt, loss, etc. They are the version of yourself that you know, without any doubt, that you are actually capable of becoming in this life.
You begin to walk closer to "Your Future" self, and notice they are levitating slightly above the mountain, in lotus position. You can feel their energy radiating from them. You begin to notice that it looks as if the stars are bowing before them, and all Universal elements are paying attention to their presence, totally aware of their being. They are a fully powerful being, exuding pure love, light, compassion, wholeness, and potential.
You continue to walk closer, and closer, until you get about 20 feet away. You stop. And you begin feel in awe of their essence. You are magnetized to their energy. You have a very "Namaste" moment with them, seeing directly into their spirit.
Suddenly your "Future Self" notices you are there, standing slightly below them.
And in this moment, fully understanding that YOU are standing in front of the highest and most perfect version of yourself, you begin to ask him/her questions.
YOU CAN ASK THEM ANYTHING! WHAT DO YOU ASK THEM? How do you get out of a situation? How did you heal through a specific moment? Where did you get off track? How do you get back on track? You can ask them anything at all.
Your Future Self Knows The Answer's To All That You Seek In Life!
We know now that there is no such thing as "time". Time is a concept that we have created to codify our "human" existence on this planet. It is something we use to help us measure spaces between moments. The truth is that the past, the present, and the future, are all happening simultaneously.
This means that within you lies the truth about who you can become in this world. Within you lies the truth of your knowledge and strength, abilities and choices! Within YOU lies the answers to all that you seek in this world!
MY CHALLENGE TO YOU TODAY, and every day past this moment... Is to stop asking the world around you for answers that you hold within you. Stop going to others to help you solve puzzles that you alone created. Stop deferring your power to those in your life. Stop thinking that someone in front of you is better than the person within you. Stop assuming that you need the advice of someone outside of yourself.
YOU ALONE ARE THE KEY, AND THE HOLD ANSWERS TO ALL THAT YOU SEEK!
WHAT WOULD MY FUTURE SELF DO?
It is the most powerful question you can ask yourself!
From this moment forward make a promise to yourself to ONLY look to the highest and best version of yourself within you to guide you through the rest of your time here on this planet.
Close your eyes and imagine the above exercise, each time, if needed. But however you need to do it, learn that YOU hold the answers to all of your questions. "How did we do this?" "Where did I go?" "What happens next?"
