Today in Kat McNally’s Reverb15, the prompt is offered by C. Streetlights:
“Haven’t you ever been caught in a moment, a magnetic swirl of a moment, when you knew – just knew – that something magical was taking place?
You might feel as if a portal into Something has opened at your heart to release a sort of energy into your own private universe, telling you, “Remember your magic…”
Think of three important portal points – one in the past, the present, and one you hope to have in the future – and join them together into one powerful and personal gateway into 2015.
Where will walking through this gateway lead you in this upcoming new year?”
I had a dream once where I was standing in a long passageway. There was a door open behind me some distance back, and a door open in front of me a fair distance ahead. When I glanced back I saw myself, but in that moment the distance between us became exponentially increased. When I looked forward again, I realized my future self was beckoning me on.
This dream shifted how I see things.
When I’m embarking on a new project I sometimes invoke my future self and see what words of encouragement she has for me. Recently I did that and as we were wrapping up our conversation she gave me a gift (alas, not one I could hold onto physically – how fabulous would that ability be?!) She gave me a ruby. To remind me of the clarity I carried within and could always return to, and as a reminder of the energy that was overlighting this project.
I think engaging with our future self is an interesting and very powerful exercise. I think we all do this, whether we’re conscious or not. Frequently when we dream or wish something really big – something that’s currently out of our realm of reasonable probability, we try to imagine how we’ll feel. Often this an effort to decide if that’s really what we want. It’s like we try to invoke the future to see how it resonates with our current vibration. But if we tweak that just a little bit, and reach into the vibration of our future self experiencing what we wish, we can use this to make more of a conscious effort to bring our current vibration into alignment with the vibration of that future self. A subtle difference perhaps, and I suspect I haven’t explained it all that very clearly either. But sometimes we just have to play with things rather than try to make sense of them. And this feels like the portals C. Streetlights is talking about in her prompt.
In the now moment, we’re always the portalway between what we desire being birthed into manifestation. Each step we take we’re actually a new reiteration of our previous self.
As I peek into the portalway of 2016, my future self is enjoying a year of fabulous fortune – creativity, exciting growth, abundant love, great vibrancy, and delightful prosperity. Yes I am!
What about you? Ever talk with your future self? Where are you headed in 2016? Do tell – you know I love to hear.
