I have a co-coaching arrangement with a colleague in Britain and every week we share an hour of time. Lately we’ve been exploring the idea of a Future Self.
In my opinion, we probably all have many Future Selves –I expect that they sit on the shelf of time like a a set of DVD’s, just waiting for us to pick one and play it on the screen of our lives. What we pick is, of course, up to us.
The Future Self I want to pick or maybe ‘activate’, for myself (and for others,) is the one that describes the BEST possibility of myself, the one that would be the fullest expression of all I could be.
The question is, how would one activate this possible self?
For me, I realized the first step was to get to know this BFS better. To do that, I had to spend some time sensing what she feels like–her core energetic, so to speak. After a few tries, I was able to write down a list of characteristics that described my Best Future Self. She is:
* radiantly calm
* deeply trusting of her deep value
* has an air of incredible nourishment
Overall, her energy is similar to that of the Dalai Lama. (Blush!)
Once I had the list of her attributes, I started aligning myself with these characteristics. As often as I can, I think the thoughts, feel the emotions, and do the activities that are most in alignment with the energetic of my Best Future Self.
It’s feeling wonderful.
In this way, I am bringing the future into the present. Or, maybe we’re meeting somewhere in between. As I reach forward to her, I feel her reaching backwards to me. It feels as if we’re becoming a team. I have asked her for more information about how to bring my Now Self into greater alignment with her and got a clear sense that she’s willing to advise me. I’ll report as we go!
What does YOUR Best Future Self feel like?
At my new website: http://www.happinessanyway.com, I’ve posted a whole bunch of meditations that you can do just by clicking on them. I’ve kept them purposely short so you can do them quickly and easily. Each and every one of them will help you modulate your energy. CLICK HERE for quick access. I’d love to know how you like them.
