It is a time of transition here in the Midwest as we move from winter to spring. The temperatures are changing, the buds are coming up through the ground, the rain is watering the Earth, and my family has been celebrating this shift with the annual Spring Break week off school!
This is a time of rebirth for the Earth, of bringing new into the physical form, and so the word that comes forward for me is Vision.
Vision - "The faculty or state of being able to see; the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom; a vivid mental image of what the future will or could be like..."
In the small sense of the word, vision is simply "the ability to see." As we expand our vision and our understanding of the word, we become a co-creator in what we see. We envision a reality that has not yet existed and align our energy to support creating or allowing that vision to come into the physical form.
This is where the power of meditation, mindfulness, or stillness is harnessed. We create clarity in our ability to see what has not yet been formed. And by continuously putting our attention upon it, we bring that vision into reality.
We create the future that we see in our minds.
Famous guides and leaders have described this in countless books, TED Talks, and blogs, and yet I've always found that a part of my mind has stayed separate from that belief of it being possible and judged and evaluated where the visions I've seen in my mind have not come true, not come into reality. Now, to me that judgment feels like a process of strengthening my ability to get clearer and clearer on my vision and to create the commitment and determination to hold that more firmly and steadily for myself.
So as we begin this new season of renewal, it is an exciting time for me as I am witnessing the physical manifestation of visions that I created only a few months ago. The manifestation cycle is becoming shorter, more intense, and more real every day for me. My friend, this shit really works! (insert giggles of delight!)
Earlier this year, I claimed three BIG intentions for myself before the end of June:
Next up - welcoming more friends into our Tribe!I share this with you to give you a real life example from My Soul Journey. This idea of creating a vision and holding it steady is not just for famous people who seem to have everything figured out.
It is for ALL of us.
So what are YOUR visions?
In this time of shifting vibrations from the cocoon of winter to the activity of spring, what vision are you ready to hold for yourself, your career, your family, your health? Spend time putting energy, emotion, and intention into that vision. Give it color, texture, sound, scent, and a vibration that is tangible. Talk about it, daydream about it, sketch it, journal the details of it, and hold it close to your heart so that you can enjoy the unfolding of it right in front of your physical eyes.
And then bring the beginnings of ideas of your vision into the Viben meditation community. This month we have five weeks of mediation calls, which creates an exchange of $55 in April - the number of transformation. So show up for yourself each week in this space and support in the physical the transformation that you are wanting to see in the spiritual.
Wishing you abundance and joy this spring!
