This is a question that most people have asked at least once in their lives, and is asked more frequently in light of these changing times. As we move through the New Earth paradigm shift, it is natural to sense a stronger need to know the future and given the various theories floating about regarding 2012 and beyond, many are left feeling a deeper sense of uncertainty about their future and the future of this planet!
The truth is that our future will always be a direct reflection of our current beliefs and thoughts!
If we spend the majority of our mental and emotional energy in the past looking for answers, for happier times, or for redemption, we will perpetuate that energy continuum into our future. Alternately, if we spend the majority of our energy in the future, we miss out on the divinity and clarity available to us in the present. It is common for some of us spend the majority of our energy focussed in the past while others spend the majority of their energy in the future. Regardless of which direction we are consciously and subconsciously focussing our attention, we are most certainly not spending time in the present!
Presence allows us to be aware of our life force, our beingness, our infinite potential, our vision, our divine mission and values, our unique gifts and talents and so on. Presence allows us to expand our multidimensional channels of communication through all of our twelve energy bodies thus fully aligning to the love and light energies of the Creator and our infinite creative potential.
In aligning with the energy of creation, we allow ourselves to fully embody our “creation” story which holds the unique frequencies of our soul, our purpose, our ancient wisdom and divine talents, our harmonic structure and our plan of divine evolution. It also divinely connects us with our Oversoul, our soul family, and our “soul mates” thus providing us with the deepest sense of connection; connection to all that is and will ever be!
Hence, spending time outside of the present moment disconnects us on all levels, including: physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, sexually, socially, creatively, and financially. This disconnection often leaves us feeling isolated, alienated, and alone and leads to adopt an illusion of separation which forces the ego to go into self-preservation mode.
When we are in self-preservation mode, the ego (our mind) generates thoughts out of fear that usually begin with “what if….?”. The more “what if” thinking we generate, the more anxiety we create. When we’re feeling anxious, separate and fearful we often find ourselves looking to the future with the hope of happier times, thus generating questions like, “what does my future hold?” Yet, the more time we spend in the future, the more we expand the energies of fear and separation. The more that we expand these energies, the more fear and uncertainty we feel and the more we try to escape to the future with the false expectation that it will be the oasis that our present moment does not seem to be! This can leave us feeling like a hamster on a wheel; constantly spinning (our minds) but never getting anywhere!
So, when we ask, “what does my future hold?” we are really looking for our oasis. Our hearts know that our oasis is found through being fully connected in the present moment to the infinite energy of creation, yet our mind has misled us to believe that happiness, joy, abundance, connection, and balance are somewhere in the future.
The question, “what does my future hold?” is really a loaded question because there are so many questions and statements that lie beneath it. I invite you to explore what may be occurring for you when you find yourself looking to the future and what you may be looking for.
Here are some examples of what you may really want to know when you ask this question:
- Is everything going to be okay?
- Am I going to be okay?
- How can I create the life I deserve and wish to live?
- What is my soul purpose?
- How can I be at peace with myself and/or my situation?
- How can I live a life free of fear and anxiety?
- How can I create a sense of belonging and overcome loneliness?
- How can I feel fully connected and alive?
- How can I make peace with money and embrace abundance and prosperity?
- How can I embrace opportunities rather than limitations?
- How can I create hope?
As you can see, these are just some examples of what you may really wish to know. When asking the question, “what does my future hold?” we already know the answer. We know in our hearts that our future is a manifestation of our current beliefs. We know that our future will align itself to the energies and expectations that we attach to it.
If we see limitation in our future, that is what we will experience. If we see joy, peace, harmony, ease, abundance, and love in our future, then so it will be. So, it is important for us to know what we want our future to be so that we may begin answering this question ourselves.
A more exalted version of this question would be, “I want to create___________________ in my life, what do I need to clear from and/or invite into my life in order to create this?” This makes us active participants in our journey! Asking “what does my future hold?” invokes a passive energy which reflects a lack of ownership over our lives. It implies a false assumption that our future is out of our control, when in fact, we are (and have always been) powerful co-creators. The more active we are in co-creating, the more our future will align to our vision.
When consulting with our guides for answers about our future, they can only guide us on the most joyous path versus the least joyous path; the path that we choose to walk is up to us! They may provide guidance about our future path, but it is their sacred contract and duty to honour the Universal Law of Free Will and love us through guidance rather than action. It is still up to us to put one foot before the other and walk our path; the Creator works with us, not for us!
When we align to the energy of presence we are tapped into the full and infinite power of creation. Imagine the limitless possibilities of what we may create in our lives? Moreover, this is a time of rapid acceleration of creative energy in the universe, so I invite you to be mindful that whatever intentions you send out through the power of creation will expand exponentially! What are your intentions for your future?
I also invite you conduct an interesting experiment with yourself. Perhaps, you may wish to experiment with replacing the question, “what does my future hold?” with, “what does my present moment hold?” This allows you to return to your divine state of innonence and wonder as you experience the essence of you. Being an observer of your life can yield very interesting insights and opportunities! Enjoy!
However you choose to be more mindful of your present moment, I wish you magic and miracles as you align to the power of your creation story! Namaste.
