Future Life Progression




Future Life Progression, or FLP for this post is a practice where you can take a peek at your future self, learn the steps it took you to get there and perhaps recognise any pitfalls.

If your wondering if FLP is actually possible it is, and you do it all the time in small ways without even knowing. We look into the future constantly, how often have you seen a parking spot in your minds eye before reaching it, or seen yourself doing something before you actually do it.

It’s morning here in the UK and many of us are thinking about what we’ll be serving up for dinner tonight. I’m thinking of a bowl of pasta, I see it first in my minds eye, shining maybe, with a coating of sauce, sprinkled with basil or parmesan, a welcome sight. Now that pasta is probably still in the packet on the supermarket shelf, the cheese on the deli counter and basil on the plant. But because I’ve seen it on the plate, I understand the steps I need to take to create it.

Now create your own dinner, close your eyes and imagine, visualise it on the plate, on the table, your lap, or a tray, wherever it is you usually eat your dinner. Thinks about the steps you took to make it, the magic ingredient maybe. Take a look around you, is there anybody with you, or are you alone, do you have a drink with your dinner? It’s easy to create isn’t it, and now you’ve created it, you have the blueprint, you can easily do it again this evening, you know exactly where to get the ingredients and you know already how it turns out.

As a practitioner, I can help my clients go further forward, five or ten years or maybe much further. I’m a clinical hypnotherapist, FLP and PLR practitioner and help people find their most positive future self. When you see yourself in the future, you know the steps you took to get there, you know for example it was the job or relationship holding you back, you know who is important and still around, what you’ve had to do to get there and what changes, if any it required.

FLP as a therapeutic tool is probably not for everyone, but it is certainly helpful at time where we feel blocked, confused or unsure in life. Creative visualisation on the other hand is useful for all of us, we do it naturally when we day dream but when we do it purposefully it can make our lives better in the simplest of ways. Think of the garden you will create this summer, how the colours blend, where the shade is, how the wildlife will enjoy it, nobody plants a garden without seeing it first in their mind eye.

Thought creates, when we see something in our minds eye, it becomes, it exists and is therefore possible. All great things start with a single thought that grows. Nothing in life, just is, it was all created, whether we recognise it or not. Thought creates pathways in the brain, just like the pathway I made in order to eat that pasta later today.

Everything in the external world has it’s roots in our thoughts and beliefs, we create what we believe, wether we know it or not. Our subconscious mind creates our futures by turning thoughts into mental images, which create our reality. When we use our conscious imaginations to create through the use of creative visualisation, we begin to create our external reality.





When I see you in my dreams at night,

why do I just take that for granted.

In those dreams I find you within,

there’s always a message that’s planted.

And waking in the morning light,

symbols floating through my mind.

I try to go back into that slumber,

to that beauty that’s so hard to find.

Is it your love that create my dreams,

is this the way you talk to me now.

I’m bewildered by the concept,

that you live in my dreams somehow.



Men from Mars

What if it wasn’t men from Mars,

what if it was just sheep.

White and wooly, fluffy ones,

like those we use to sleep.

What if God is not really a man,

but formed like a kangaroo.

 A pouch where she puts children,

would that appeal to you.

Why are beings from outer space,

weirdly shaped like a man.

They could be other creatures see,

but does that fit with the plan.

We must think that man is perfect,

to create him all over again.

 In the paintings of angelic realms,

the angels look just the same.

And what if man did not exist,

what if the world was just trees.

With a smiling moon looking over,

that was really a big ball of cheese.







If I have walked this earth before,

oh where are the tracks I made.

If I have walked this earth before,

are all my past debts now paid.

If I have breathed in this same air,

in who’s lungs was it I breathed.

If I have breathed in this same air,

can the memories be retrieved.

And all the water that ever was,

quenches my thirst once more.

And all the water that ever was,

runs throughout me to the core.

Fires that have burned in time,

rage throughout my body now.

Fires that have burned in time,

again light my way somehow.

Of these elements I am joined,

they play in the dance I perform.

Of these elements I am joined,

until death from the day I was born.




Spirit v Human


If only I could win the lottery or come into some money, I could do all the things I wanted, I could be kind and spiritual, I could think more of others and make a difference, I could truly live my purpose‘.

Does this statement or something similar sound familiar?

It’s very easy to be spiritual when our human side is taken care of, when we don’t have to work and that human we reside in has everything it needs for us to just concentrate on being a spiritual being. But the truth is, that human does exist, it needs, it wants and it’s more often than not in control.

We are spiritual beings living in humans, we have humans and they have us and although our spirit being wants to spring out, most of us have to take care of the human and it’s personality first.

There are and have been some truly wonderful people on earth, people who’s humans have allowed the spirit through, even those that allow the spirit to lead, but it’s not common. It might be what we strive for, in fact I think that’s the whole idea of us being put together but it’s something that takes many lifetimes to achieve.

If only this, or if only that goes on throughout our lives, the relationship between spirit and human. And that’s it, if we consider it more of a relationship, we might help both parties have their say, conflict resolution, relationship guidance, call it what you will.

My spirit knows, I’m not sure how, call it a knowing that we are destroying the world, we are using up all the resources, polluting the air and seas. But the spirit lives inside the human that turns the light on, fills the car and needs a holiday in the sun. There is an ongoing conversation, should we, shouldn’t we’ within all of us and it’s because we are talking to ourselves, ourselves being the human personality and spirit within.

Many people go through life, totally human, the spirit is there but it’s asleep, it’s given in. It’s not an easy task after all and I suppose, if it is why we are born, it’s not supposed to be. But, if our spirit is strong enough, clear enough, it can get itself heard, the relationship can become more equal.

When we practice listening, we learn, if we sit in meditation or just silent contemplation for a little time each day, we are building the relationship between the two. We are allowing the spirit time to communicate and assisting the human in understanding. Isn’t that what we would recommend in any relationship, time together to create understanding and grow.

When we give ourselves, spirit and human, chance, both can be heard. It’s like any relationship, it needs time and space to grow. When we spend time each day, listening and communing with both parties, we are building the relationship, we are starting to work together, we are in rapport with who we are.

So perhaps it not about that lottery win after all, it’s not about giving the human everything it needs to release the spiritual side of us, perhaps it’s just about the relationship we nurture between the two that creates something beautiful.



I thought my calling was changing,

but it’s still very much the same.

My passion remains in traumas field,

as I’m driven to help with pain.

By believing I needed to move away,

trauma called back once more.

I’m now taking a different approach,

with much more learning in store.

Why am I called back to this trauma,

a connection to what I can’t see.

Though in honesty if I’m truthful here,

in helping others I’m helping me.













A Spark

A spark ignited in my small heart,

warming up what once was stone.

I felt it as it slowly grew inside me,

this knowing that I was not alone.

Seeing it brightly in my minds eye,

loved how far a flame could grow.

Awareness that was understanding,

and I realised that I’d always known.

A fire burning throughout my being,

was touching others along the way.

A spark that grew into a raging fire,

will keep growing throughout days.
