Feeling worried? Confused? It’s time to tap the wisdom of your future self.
Because we’re eternal and divine souls created by spirit, our souls possess the special power to transcend time. It’s not a power many of us call on. But when we’re scared or worried or confused, it can truly be a godsend.
We can call on our future self to guide and comfort us.
Here’s an easy way to get a feel for your unbreakable tie to your future self.
Think back to when you were younger, and remember the desires you had back then that you’re living today.
Did you go to the college of your choice? Did you get the job you dreamed of at the company you hoped to work for? Are you living in the city and the home you used to imaging living in? Have you traveled to the places you most wanted to see?
Yes, I know you had disappointments, but for this moment focus on the dreams that did come true for you. Make a list and let yourself be surprised and amazed by every wish that has come true.
Much of the time, the best of what we once wished for ourselves manifests as what we have lived or are living now or will live in the future. As Abraham-Hicks teaches: these manifestation happen because our desires are responded to by the universe, based on the Law of Attraction.
Though we don’t typically become a vibrational match to every desire, we line up enough of the time to experience manifestation of our desires – sooner or later.
Did you make your list? Do it, because – once you take a moment to acknowledge the dreams you’ve had that did come true – your mind can begin to accept that the universe really is listening to your desires here and now and really is helping you manifest.
The individualized aspect of us that listens and energetically experiences the realization of our dreams – well before we experience them in 3D human reality – can be called our future self.
Once you see how many desires of yours have already manifested, the idea that you are listened to by an energy invested in creating your desired future starts to make some sense.
Then it’s a simple next step to activate your special power to access your wise and loving future self.
And then you get to ask this aspect of your eternal self, which already knows how the problem was solved, to tell you exactly what to do right now to move toward the solution.
You can do this in three steps.
Three steps to call on your future self’s wisdom
Give yourself quiet time when you will not be interrupted. Ten minutes is a good minimum, and 30 minutes is usually more than enough.
Step One: Say aloud or write down: “I intend to use this sacred time to communicate with my future self and receive its guidance about ___________” [your desired solution].
Step Two: Close your eyes and ask your future self to be with you. Know that when you ask it is given: your future self always joins you when you ask it to.
Step Three: Rather than asking your future self for the specifics of how and when something got resolved, ask to receive the feeling of the now-resolved situation. Example: instead of asking “how and when when did I finally get out of debt?” ask “what is it like when I’m free from debt?”
Then allow yourself to quietly accept and bask in the positive feelings your future self is broadcasting to you. Know that the positive energy you experience is your soul’s authentic energy.
If you receive negative feelings or information: then you aren’t connected to your future self – which is always positive and all-loving. Instead you are being lied to by your ego mind. Negativity is always a sign we are out of alignment with spirit and our inner beings. Your future self – an aspect of your soul or inner being – is always in alignment with spirit and therefore always positive and loving. It is incapable of sending us negativity.
If you do experience negativity, tell your ego-mind to be shut up and allow your future self to communicate with you. This works, especially if you are firm and allow yourself to know that You are more powerful than your ego-mind. It make take a few tries, but your ego-mind is never as strong as your divine soul. This is your opportunity to show your ego-mind that the divine is in charge.
You may (or may not) receive specific instructions from your future self: Specifics are more likely if you have some experience receiving or channeling. However – it’s not at all necessary to receive specifics. It’s more likely you will simply receive a general sense of positive emotion flowing into and through you: peace, letting go, relaxation, calm and so on.
Allow yourself to receive the broadcast of these emotions from your future self who knows you will receive your outcome. Sit or lie quietly and breathe in these positive energies until you feel complete.
Then say thank you, and let your future self depart as you take a few more minutes to bask in the beautiful energy it transmits to you.
Was that Really My Future Self? Or did I make it all up?
Receiving positive emotions may not seem all that exciting to you, especially if you were hoping for the appearance of a magnificent ball of fire followed by the dramatic reading of a scroll with detailed descriptions of exactly how everything plays out for you.
Forget about the ego-mind’s endless desire for dramatic intervention. Instead remember this truth:
The Law of Attraction must respond to our energy field, which is created by our habitual beliefs and emotional states.
When we call on our future self, and the extreme stress we felt about a particular situation becomes bathed in its love and positive emotion, we have uplifted our energy field and established a new vibrational point of attraction. Now we are able to attract our ideal solutions and positive outcomes.
We don’t need to know in advance how it will all unfold. The universe has unlimited ways to line things up for us.
We only need to stay in positive emotional states more of the time, which automatically lines us up to attract our solutions.
Taking time to connect to our future self — who knows what emotional state will help us and who is delighted to broadcast that state to us — cleanses and aligns our emotional energy and opens our hearts to allow and receive the manifestation of our desires.
