The Power of Revisualization
When was the last time you took some time to think
about your life and where you are at this point in time on your journey? Have
you taken the time to really think about the degree to which you have
accomplished the things you determined are important to you? It may be taking a
particular career path or entering into partnerships with people who have the
characteristics that make you feel most comfortable. Maybe you have a dream trip
you want to take or a volunteer cause you've been meaning to commit to. No
matter what the path is for you, it can be tricky to see the vision realized if
we don't give ourselves the gift of time to clearly visualize what we want and
create some kind of a game plan to accomplish that goal.
Because of my busy schedule, it is sometimes challenging to find the time to
clarify, for myself, what I would like to have manifested. For me, I believe
that if I don't have clarity, the universe, the powers that be, can't deliver
the things I would like to be a part of my life. If I don't have a vision or if
that vision is fuzzy, I'm stuck, figuratively and literally.
Well, I do have a picture of my life that I want to see manifested and in living
color. Much of what I've envisioned has come to be, but as we go through life,
we find ourselves with refined or new dreams. Or as some accomplishments come to
fruition, we find room in our life for new adventures. But if I don't take the
time to think about how I want to move forward, I don't progress. It's like the
little gerbil in a cage running round and round, spinning its wheels. Yeah, I've
For me to best experience "vision clarity", I have to get away from my every day
routine and environment. If I stay at home, inevitably I end up doing some task
on my home to do list or running some errands or (ye gads) checking my work
email, even though I am supposed to be on vacation. With extreme discipline, I
can do this exercise at home, but whenever possible, I take a little time away.
I was very fortunate, recently, when a wonderful friend of mine invited me to be
part of a women's trip to the Caribbean in celebration of a milestone birthday.
A week in a beautiful and spacious villa with time spent lounging at the villa's
pool, visiting a number of local beaches and walking around the island was
heaven. It was a deeply rich experience to have the opportunity to reconnect
with old friends, many that I had not seen in some time (and make a few new
ones). This laid back, judgment free, laugh until you're silly experience, was
most definitely good for the soul.
This trip provided plenty of time for reflection, for day dreaming, for
"revisualization". This precious time is like sitting in front of a blank canvas
and seeing pieces of my life come alive. A paintbrush appears and draws what
I've been thinking of. With this picture in order, I can move forward with the
action steps I need to undertake in order to bring what I desire to me. While
the opportunity to do this off-site, away from ringing telephones and other
daily routines was a gift, it can be done at home. More times than not, home is
where these experience have taken place. It just requires a little discipline
and a can-do attitude. This works in whatever environment you choose.
For some time now, I have had a dream (that comes to me in sleep time, as well
as in visions when I am awake) of starting a foundation and having a connection
to a space that is a nurturing haven for children and adults alike. It expands
my current volunteer book-sharing efforts to address literacy issues and
provides a safe place for learning; it provides a library rich with books on all
religious and spiritual walks of life so those searching have a place to learn;
it provides support for the peace-building NGO I currently volunteer for in
Central Africa and it offers a wide range of classes and workshops for health
and healing. In this space, workshops about working with our angels, connecting
with our dreams, drumming and living a life of positivity are the norm. This
vision keeps growing stronger, demanding my attention and, therefore, action.
For several weeks now I have been attending a wonderful non-denominational
gathering space called ARC Sacred Center in Monroe, Connecticut. During the most
recent sharing by Reverend Chris, she talked about "our story"; how each of us
has a story. Are we letting go of a story that no longer serves us? Are we
living, right now in the present day, the story we are most meant to live? It
was one of those "ah ha" moments for me, because I am, in part, living my story,
but not to my fullest potential. I am encouraged to give myself permission to
move forward in a positive way. One step and one day at a time. While on
vacation, with this vision of how I am to move forward very present on my mind
(and in my heart), a mission statement came to me, followed by a vision
statement and a list of core values connected to this vision. I have some work
to do, but at least now I've started down a path of realizing this dream and I'm
excited about that.
Have you revisioned your life lately? Are there any changes you'd like to make?
What scenario do you step into when you see your best life before you? What you
envision may not happen overnight, but by taking the time to articulate for
yourself what you want your life to be, you will be on the road to realizing it.
