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.

A ´╗┐Cleansing Shower

I feel the blue run through me, cleansing as it does.

The waters washing over me, falling from above.

I close my eyes and imagine, it enters through my crown.

The colours of the chakras now, seeping all around.

A cleansing shower is perfect, just to visualise.

Starts the day off so nicely, why not have a try.

I always wash any worries away like this, hop in the shower or submerge myself in the bath and just visualise the water doing its work. Water is a powerful element and we are made up of a good deal of this magical substance so it’s quite natural that it is useful in cleansing rituals.

Water is known to purify crystals, washing away any negativity that’s collected and taking them back to their natural state, why would it not do the same with us.

Think of all the things water is used for, washing right? Even when we drink it we are washing out our systems. It dilutes stronger substances, it supports life and it provides a natural song. Think of the lapping of the waves on the beach, the sound of rain or a bubbling brook, can you hear the music?

The key I think is the visualisation, imagining it running through us clearing away blockages, getting into all the dark spots.

Air, Fire and Earth can be used in similar ways, think about planting flowers or vegetables, blowing out the cobwebs or lighting a candle or sending a flame to the sky.

Don’t you think these elements are taken for granted a little when they can be put to so much good use by incorporating into our lives through visualisation?

Let me know how you get on or quite simply if you think I’m mad ­čśë

Dreaming Lately?´╗┐

It started in meditation, I saw a candle, a large red candle, and looked into the melted wax. I fell in and flew out of the wax as a giant bird and travelled the universe faster than any bird could fly.

I was energy, I was the universe, I was everything I could see. Colours were vibrant yet it was before dawn, purples, reds, oranges mixed together as if paint had been smudged on a canvas, the colours were not paint though, they were out of this world.

I lost contact with my physical self, I knew my feet were not on the ground any longer. I was part of everything that is, I was all of us and yet none of us.

Later that night when I went to bed I found it hard to sleep, I was wide awake and full of energy. I wondered if it was because I’d meditated for so long, resting my body and therefore disturbing my sleep. I did sleep eventually and had the weirdest of dreams, I dreamt about a huge bright green insect that lived in an open cage by my bed. I think it had got out, of an open cage I know, but it decided to take a walk. It was biting me,well irritating me, trying to wake me up although I was awake in my dream. I wasn’t too keen on the insect, kept my distance, but at the same time saved it when it was close to being squashed.

I woke up to a deep and primitive animal noise behind me, same as last week, you might of read my wolf poem, but this time I knew without looking it was a big cat, a wild cat. I didn’t look because I knew it wasn’t there. At the same time as this, as I opened my eyes I saw a purple light, about five or six foot, I knew it was a being. It disappeared as I focused but I did see it again later. I really think I was awake, I know there are those that might argue.

I had some words in my head, I wrote them as a life lesson earlier today as to me this is what they felt like. I sat up in the middle of the night and wrote them down.

I went back to sleep and dreamt of death and beginnings, a lot of feminine imagery too. There was more but it does not feel right writing it down, confusing family stuff.

So many people are telling me about weird dreams, it’s as if there is an opening, teachings through dreams maybe. I’m excited and writing them down. I’m telling my friends to also, I want to see if there is anything that runs through all of our dreams. Please do let me know if any of you are having the same mad dreams.

I have to write them down, for one thing it’s what writers do and another, I think I will remember if I don’t write them, but then try and recollect them and they are gone.
