Call Upon Your Future Self

A new year just began, so you may be thinking about how to “do it better” from now on. Maybe you’re looking for the secret for becoming that person you will someday be — that wiser, future self.

Here’s a surprise for you: no matter what’s happening in your life, you haven’t been “doing it wrong.” You may simply have forgotten who you are, and why you are here. Furthermore, everything you need to be who you want to be is right here in this moment — even the wisdom of the future self you imagine will be so much wiser than you are now.

Every second of time you have experienced or will experience is available right now. In the Cornucopia Reality, where your Soul, or Essence, lives, there is no such thing as time and space. When you are connecting with your Soul, you can flit around between temporal realities – sprinkling a bit of love here, seeking a bit of peace there… it’s all quite fun and magical and a bit like being Tinker Bell.

Think about it this way: After you’ve gone through something really rocky, intense or confusing, and it’s all over, you often have clarity on the gifts that came out of the experience. And you think to yourself,” If only I had realized the blessings that would flow, it would not have seemed so hard!”

You can, right now, go back in time to any other moment in your life, and send your Younger Self a bit of love, hope and wisdom. You can whisper, “It’s alright. Everything is going to be ok. Keep breathing.”

And likewise, if you happen to be in the middle of a rocky, intense, confusing time, you can call upon your Future Self—that part of you who already knows how this all works out, and who has the wisdom to take the long view, and the larger perspective. You can breathe in that wisdom right here, right now, to guide you and give you peace.

You don’t have to wait until you have it all figured out, or you’ve become the wise and spiritual soul you always hoped you would be. You can choose the life you want to live right now, in this moment, by accessing your “Future” Self.

Breathe. Relax. Smile. There’s nowhere else to go. No one else to be. Everything you need is right here.

Happy New Year.
