A life vision is like a compass, a sense of direction or purposeful framework that guides and aligns our intentions and keeps us connected to contributing to others.
It is born from a sense of helping and benefiting others, of being of service and also includes our capacities, skills and unique talents. It's asking the questions "What is my function?" and also "How can I be of service?" and is an exploration of your deeper sense of identity.
Looking into this truthfully is a gift to everyone who connects with you. It's important to look into some of your deeply held beliefs and shake some of the notions that are held unconsciously.
It's not initially going to be a pleasant ride. You may bump against longstanding habits and ideas that have been held close to you for a while.
It's going to be an unraveling of your sense of self having to adapt or become more flexible to let through some of the inner messages and stirrings pointing you in the direction. It's a new way of being to leave behind the known, and keep embracing an ever new arising of what serves evolution.
1. Explore and transform what limits your energy and vitality.
You might have some habits that don't support a consistent energy level, for example lack of sleep, smoking or not eating healthily. You may find you have health issues that are limiting your well-being, related to stress or connected to emotional issues.
Finding the areas that you dissociate around and feel disconnected will greatly benefit you in learning how to initiate, engage and clearly set intentions stated in the positive. To have access to your vitality is to have a strong energy state, one that supports your vision and brings focus on what is achievable and can be moved towards.
If you find you have difficulties setting positive goals, and instead focus on what you lack or you don't want, this is a great beginning point. You can further read the post 4 Fixations To Limit Your Goalsetting to find out more about how to set well-formed goals.
2. Connect to inner guidance and establish a clear area of focus.
When exploring a vision it is important to connect to inner guidance and to bring into focus a specific area so that you can take specific steps to accomplish it.
Inner guidance helps to not get caught in having several goals, getting caught up in multiple intentions that limit your capacity to move forward. A particular issue around this area is having conflicting aspects that if not carefully looked at, prevent being able to see your unfolding direction and stay stagnant without finding a clear focus.
This may mean that you have a conflicting inner struggle where two different aims demand equal attention and you may just simply block your ability to tap into a feeling of knowing what is next or can open the door to a step that is helpful and meaningful.
This relates to setting a simple goal, and staying with one goal at a time.
