Developing a Clear(er) Vision of Our Future
By jona bryndis, May 29 2019 04:08AM
Wouldn’t it be nice to have this inner clarity of knowing exactly what we want and how to get there? We knew exactly what is best for us, we could easily make decisions and all our struggles would be gone...
Knowing the future gives us the feeling of being in control over our life, and control promises relief from all inner conflicts. However, from a deeper spiritual point of view, this is only how our ego feels about future – it believes that we can only obtain inner peace perfectly planned out and linear A-Z steps. Seeking True Inner Vision doesn’t work this way! We can make plans, have good intentions and tons of will power to manifest our resolutions, but deep down we remain unsure if these choices are really in tune with our higher purpose.
Willpower is not enough
One of the main reasons for not having a clear vision of our future is that most of us cannot trust in our inner vision. Is our mind making this up? A valid doubt. At some part of our journey, we all have to face our Illusions. In addition, the more invested we are in a certain outcome the more frustration creeps in when things don’t work out the way we projected it.
Not trusting in our ability to see into the future. prompts the desire to seek it through others. Our ego believes that it will give us an edge knowing where our life is headed. But in reality, the constant leaning into the future and searching for answers, approval or confirmation from outside of us does nothing but increase our fears of the future.
Inner clarity and vision are linked with our inner congruence and ability to know what is true to us. Vision and Truth are inseparable. There is no vision without clarity about who we truly are – and there can't be clarity without being able to discern truth from within.
Breaking Through Perceptive Overlays
Over the years of working as Energy Coach & Healer, there is not a single person I have worked with, including myself, who doesn’t suffer from occasional or constant insecurity about whether what we are seeing or feeling is ‘real’. It seems in the nature of our 3D experience as humans to feel an inner schism between our physical and energetic existence.
For most of us this plays out as constant inner doubting, relentless critical inner voices and self-berating sabotage cycles. Especially highly sensitive people and empaths are often caught in a vicious pain cycle here: We have all these sensations, intuitions and gut feelings, but we don’t know what do to with it. As they are often unclear and even contradicting we cannot trust in them and thus we dismiss them - leading to shutting off our perceptivity altogether
Learning How to Tap into Our Own Precognition
Most of you are already familiar with energetic patterns and understand that what we perceive is not necessarily what is true to us. The main mechanism clouding our inner vision of the future – including who we truly are and what we truly want - is our susceptibility to outer influences; collective energies, emotional/mental projection from others and a constant energetic exposure. They keep us distracted, off focus and often cause an automatic warding off of energetic sensations, especially when we can feel them strongly in our body. And so, we spend most of our energy resisting our inner vision.
Mediation and spiritual consciousness work can allow us to dive a bit deeper into the complex web of clouded our subconscious perception. The number one goal of our inner work is to unlock the ability to ‘see’ through the veil of ego illusion and to connect with our innate ability to bypass inner and outer influences and ultimately reconnecting with our higher perception.
However, in order to decouple from the collective unconscious, we need to be willing to allow the personal layers of illusion to unravel, which is the first and often hardest resistance to break through. After all, our ego loves our illusions!
Contrary to popular belief it is not our mental capacity that allows us to see into the future, but our inner heart connection.
While we can tap into the collective consciousness through meditation and other mental training techniques, we are still not able to filter relevant information for ourselves. Due to constant collective bombardment, we are more likely to be confused or pessimistic about our future.
Understanding How Mind, Emotions, and Ego Influence Our Vision
Inner Vision is the result of being able to feel when information converges with our inner truth – Clarity is, therefore, the consequence of trusting in our inner vision. In other words, there is no way to get to a place in which we can fully feel and trust in our Inner Vision if we are not congruent within. But in order to trust we need to know the difference between our inner signals and where they originated and what their purpose is.
Experiencing Emotions or Emoting is not the same as feeling, intuiting or visioning - emotions are not linked to our heart-field. They are linked to our physical, our autonomous nervous system and the animalistic part of our brain. They make up the majority of our INNER BLOCKS as they are mainly associated with our lower Chakra regions (sternum, abdomen, reproductive organs and downward). Emotions are therefore less connected with our mind than we think (tehe!).
Our Mind, Conscious Thinking and our higher intellectual, conceptual and cognitive abilities are located in our neo/prefrontal cortex, which is associated with our upper Chakra regions (head, shoulders, face and neck). The fuel for our emotional, mental and physical reactions and overlay is our Ego.
Here an energetic roadmap to inner sensations, emotions and thoughts:
For the untrained person, all signals that are received are nothing but a mixture of sympathetic neural programs, stored physical and emotional energies from the past, conditioned beliefs and karmic subprograms that go through the filter of our ego.
The Ego constantly compares, combines and computes possible outcomes of incoming information and aligns it to what feels the safest or least threatening course of action.
Undetected by our conscious mind is also dismisses information, adds fantasies and exaggerates – all in the ‘best’ interest of trying ‘to keep us safe’ from harm or death.
How Our Ego Filters Our Perception
Holistically seen, the ego functions like a bridge between our body, mind, and emotions. It uses them as allies to constantly filter our perceptions based on its preprogrammed function to secure our survival. For example, Fear of the Unknown: As humans, we are the only species that is able to anticipate the future, which directly linked to the task and purpose of our ego. The ego uses our thoughts to create emotions, which then cause physical reactions that help us to have a direct reaction to perceived threats.
Thinking of our future generates an automatic recall of our past, which activates our cell memory, which triggers physical and emotional reactions, which consequently creates more thoughts and worries that perpetuate the cycle.
If we want to have vision without our ego interfering we need to learn how to discern.
True Inner Vision is not tied to our ego. It evaluates incoming information based on its truth level and resonance with our higher purpose. Inner Vision is generated in our pineal gland (Third Eye), an independent ‘organ’ behind our seeing nerve. Here, holographic, non-linear and entangled/retro-causal information can be processed and translated into what we would call inner guidance.
True Inner Vision is not influenced by our thinking, emoting or even our past memories, as it draws information from the Universal Divine Field.
The only way to fully become able to discern our inner truth and bypass inner and outer influences is through practicing the connection with our Heart-Center.
Our Heart-Center is more than just the seat of our empathy or emotions. It is the gateway to our True Self existence, the holographic bridge between our mortal body and eternal soul.
While sensations originating in out heart-center can feel like emotions at first, it takes only little practice to feel the difference.
The biggest issue with developing a clear vision of our future is NOT our ability to perceive information, as we all have this ability, but the way we process and CONTEXTUALIZE this information.
And as if this wasn’t tough enough to translate ego-less information into a truth-based perception of the world, other factors such as karma, trauma, shadow, inner child and basic collective programming can still overshadow what we perceive.
The challenge that remains even after understanding these complex inner dynamics is how to circumvent all these hard-wired programs and to tap into pure information that is free of all these individual factors. Obviously, our mind can’t get us there – mental techniques are not able to bypass ego. Even Mindfulness, clairvoyance, precognition or vision quests alone can guarantee us truth. All they can do is to show us a slightly less biased puzzle pieces.
To effectively break through our ego illusions, composed of our inner schism of emotion, body, mind is the self-transformative journey of combining all channels of perception and learning how to contextualize our perception.
Tapping Into the Full Potential of Our Inner Vision
Visions (of the future) are only the tip of the iceberg of what our higher perception is truly capable of receiving. However, even our higher preceptive abilities can still be influenced by our ego’s intention. Therefore a big part of this self-transformation process is not to ‘become better’ at perceiving information but getting better at bypassing our ego filters.
For this to happen we need to accept that most of what we perceive on a daily basis is distorted. This in itself is typically already a life-changing process, as letting go of illusions can take care of entire clusters of skewed perception.
As we train honest self-reflection and follow up with it through practical implementation of Inner Guidance, we are beginning to feel how the center of our center can provide the only true gateway to healing all aspects of self that can distort our Vision of The Future.
With the connection to our Heart and the Fusion of Past, Present and Future Self, we are building a new bridge between our inner and outer vision. We open the gate to our inner microcosms that is directly linked to the eternal Divine Field/Source.
Once we are not afraid of going into our Unified Self anymore, we will be reminded of our Divine Nature and feel how the future is emanating through us at all times - and right now! This aligns our to our inner truth and allows us to observe, correct and transmute our ego, mind, body, emotions and even energies at all times. Through resting in our heart we become able to see through all the layers of illusion and experience the freedom to feel our future without restriction.
What naturally follows then is a shift in our Alignment that allows us to accept the fallibility of our ego, the pain of the past and with it the fear of the future.
Trusting in our ability to tap into the future reassures and enables us to internalize that it’s not how we want our vision of the future things to be, but how well we can allow it to be the way it IS. Through this, we can finally let go of our attachment to outcomes and surrender to the inner peace of knowingness.
Each of us can become the creator, writer, and director of a new heart-based script of our life, if we choose to. The key to opening the door of our ego prison cell is already in us!
