During moments when you are most aligned with your higher self, you receive downloads of guidance and information. One aspect of the guidance downloaded into your consciousness involves images of future probabilities.
It’s easy to recognize a spiritual vision because it lifts you up and excites you. Your conscious mind may experience fear and concern around a vision, but on another level, you will feel expanded and excited by it. Allow these visions to enter your consciousness and exist in their own space. Avoid the temptation to surround visions with thoughts of how you would carry them out or how challenging or impossible or difficult it would be for you to act on them. Your conscious mind always wants to know the what, when, where, how, and why of your visions. Allow yourself to not know the answers to these questions. This is a big part of trusting in your highest visions.
Allowing Visions to 'Take Root' in Consciousness
When you allow a vision to exist in your consciousness, you see it begin to take root. You begin to see steps you can take to nurture it into being. You don't need to know all the steps at first. It’s likely you won't. Trust that when you receive a vision, it already exists in your energetic field as a potential reality. Trust that when you receive a vision of something "already in existence" energetically, the resources to manifest the vision are readily available. In fact, in order for a vision to not manifest, it must be blocked by your thoughts, beliefs, attitudes and emotions. If these are all clear and open, you will receive guidance on actions you can take to bring your vision into physical reality.
You may not understand at first why you're receiving a vision. For instance, if you see yourself moving to a new city or undertaking a course of study, you may not initially understand why. As you take steps to explore the visions you receive, you will see why you have received them and how they can provide you with important understandings you need to progress spiritually. Since you may not fully understand the importance of a step until you take it, you’ll need to learn to trust and believe in your visions.
Be Willing to Embrace Rites of Passage
The steps you’re asked to take in realizing your visions may require you to make difficult and painful decisions. You may see yourself leaving your present career, ending a relationship, moving to a new city, or otherwise letting go of ideas, things, and connections. Sometimes you will be asked to release an aspect of your past or change a deeply ingrained habit. Spiritual learning is not always about maintaining the status quo. In fact, it’s often about tearing down what has been and moving forward in a new way. As you enter a place of surrender where you embrace and allow all that spirit is asking of you, you’ll find many wonderful and beautiful things entering your life. Change and growth are not about “losing” things, but about discovering and embracing new parts of yourself. These parts may be reflected in your physical reality by people, situations, places, and experiences.
Be Willing to ‘Ask’ for Assistance
You may be asked to learn a new skill or expand your vision for what you believe is possible in your life. Don’t judge yourself if you experience resistance and uncertainty. You are always able to ask your guides and higher self for clarification, assistance and additional information to prepare the way for you to come into a place of readiness. There is nothing "wrong" with seeking this clarification and assistance. Keep preparing your consciousness and finding your way; request the guidance and resources you need to undertake your journey and open to receive them.
We offer here steps to receiving a spiritual vision:
One) Set your intention to open to the visions your spirit brings you.
Two) Enter a peaceful, trancelike state through breathing, meditation, self-hypnosis or other techniques.
Three) Quiet your mind, release all thoughts and remain in a state of alert listening.
Four) Allow an image to form in your mind.
Five) When you see this image clearly, write it down, speak it into a tape recorder, or sketch it out.
Six) Enter a state of allowing. Allow this image to exist in your consciousness without knowing how it will manifest.
Seven) If you have questions about this vision, ask your guides and higher self for clarification. Don’t hesitate to formulate questions to your guides and higher self seeking additional information and guidance.
Eight) As you receive guidance, be willing to take steps to act on the images you receive. Part of this step is acting with impeccable timing. This may mean watching for signs and synchronicities to line up. When you see your guidance line up with your environment, be willing to act impeccably within the moment.
Nine) Once you’ve taken action, observe how things unfold. If you need clarification, question your guides about the steps you’ve taken and ask for further steps.
Ten) Accept the results of your actions, whatever they are, affirming everything that happens in your life is an opportunity to expand your understandings.
Eleven) Thank your guides and higher self for the assistance and information they have provided.
Twelve) Remain in a state of alert listening for any further steps to take.
