Visioning: A Doorway to a Life of Fulfillment
Those of you who have been reading my articles for a while know that I am a strong believer in setting goals and visualizing them. From my own experience, using the practical tool of goal setting and practicing the elegant technique of visualization can help us expand and grow in our business and our life.
Most of us are quite familiar with goal setting, which involves making a list of outcomes we want to accomplish in the future in a linear and focused way, resulting in measurable and specific outcomes. We outline the steps to reach our goal within a time frame and take action. This is a powerful tool that stresses “doing” when we know what we want to accomplish.
Visualization is a technique for creating in our thoughts the mental equivalent of “what” we want to happen, as if it were already so. Law of Attraction specialists promote the use of visualization, because they know that by placing ourselves in the sensory and emotional experience of our goal, we are then more capable of generating the emotions and mindsets that go with being there. This creates the vibrations that attract that event, thing, or goal we want to manifest in reality.
Goal setting and visualization have in common that they are focused on our own human desires. They are driven by identified ideas of what we want to happen or accomplish.
Visioning, however, is driven by Spirit (God, Universe, your spiritual connection). Visioning involves opening ourselves to allow messages regarding a specific outcome to come through Spirit and to unfold through Spirit’s guidance in our lives.
In visioning, our work is to be open to allow the “divine download” or the ideas and direction that come from Spirit. Unlike goal setting and visualization, we do not have a preconceived or a specific “what” we want to happen because it isn’t about our wants, but about our divine purpose being expressed in our lives. When we vision we become a channel through which a spiritual creative process occurs.
Goal setting is a tool, visualization a technique, but “visioning is a process by which we train ourselves to be able to hear, feel, see and catch God’s plan for our life or for any particular project we’re working on.” says Rev. Dr. Michael Beckwith.
There are several ways to engage in the Visioning process, including meditation, journaling, finding the right mentor or coach, and asking ourselves a specific set of questions.
By opening up to literally an infinite array of possibilities that we may never have considered, visioning is a way we can live our soul’s purpose with excitement, grace and courage.
