Healthy Visions: Seeing Yourself Well

Image result for vision healthy self-imageWhen we think of sight, we may not always remember that it goes far beyond that which we can see with our physical eyes. The type of seeing, the visions that I will be talking about today, while they interact and manifest eventually in the physical realm, are those born from within us and act as seeds planted within our own imaginations.

As humans with free-will, we always have the choice what to do with those seeds. We can leave them alone to die or we can care for and tend to our visions and therefore harvest for ourselves a life full of endless potential.

You see we ALL have far more power that we’ve ever been told and I won’t leave it up to chance that anyone ever will tell you if you haven’t figured it out for yourself yet…so here goes. Our minds, our very thoughts that we allow to take form from the pulling of potentialities within our imaginations, are creating our lives. And everyone around us, conscious of it or not, are doing the same exact thing.

Thoughts, like everything else in existence, are energy and are catalyzed with feeling based on your intent, which ultimately is a major determining factor is the form with which it manifests into reality. But all thoughts…backed with belief and emotion, that are repeated enough to have taken habitual form can be considered tools within your creative toolbox. And it is not your fault that you were never taught you even had a toolbox. It is, however, in your best interest to learn how to use it to best serve your life and your heart-driven desires.

Which takes us to my next topic…How we do we know ourselves? Do we really know what we like, want, and desire? Or do we accept what we’ve been guided into by other people that simply know what they like, want, and desire? What I’m getting at is, a person born into a family of a very strict religion, etc. will, by human nature if left to their own devices, eventually seek to explore “the other side” of it.

Why’s that? Because when something is constricting us so tightly that it interferes with our actual BE-ing, our authentic self, the reality of who we are under labels, past mistakes and expectations…we naturally seek to EXPAND. Think about it, when we feel stuffy in a crowd, we need to get away and fresh air alone. If we feel pressured to go to medical school, but secretly feel we will fail because our heart lies with interior design…then we will eventually EXPAND into that truth.

It will manifest as what parents might “see” (yes those quotes are intentional LOL) as rebellion, disrespect or an intentional disregard for the “success” (meant those too) of the family because it is breaking the comfort of commonality and continual CONSTRICTION. And this is why it’s so important to be mindful our not only our own actions but the effect of our own thoughts and expectations that we place onto others. What we might feel as a positive expansive act may be a completely negative and constricting experience for another person.

Tie this all together and it paints a nice picture of how we develop our self-image and self-esteem as children and why it is so important to maintain and healthy vision about who we are AS WE ARE NOW. Limiting thoughts that convince us that we are undeserving until…or not good enough until… speak of needing us to change something to receive acceptance, acknowledgment or even love in some cases and that is so terribly sad. How about we teach to love ourselves first and see where that takes us, rather than teaching that our worth comes from what the world thinks of us and forcing our children to mold themselves around those expectations. Image result for vision healthy self-image

We lose our innocence that way, a spark of our creative soul loses its glimmer and I again find that so terribly sad as it is unnecessary. When we can see ourselves in a healthy light and know that no matter what the world thinks of us we are never undeserving of love, we live AS love and have a much greater chance of raising children that bare witness to you doing this and end up doing it themselves.

Remember, children are REACTING for the first 7 years of life. They cannot help it as we are designed to soak up the world around through our sensory perceptions in order to learn and protect ourselves. Perhaps if we can teach them to instead respond from their hearts, via leading by example. And only then does a child have the ability to merge into the next stage of life with RECEPTIVITY that is objective, not subjective and at the will of others’ opinions.

We cannot grow if we refuse to face the light, but we also cannot stand if we refuse to dig deep and plant strong roots. When we are willing to stretch far both deep and wide intellectually and spiritually, we are truly getting to know our most divine selves. What naturally unfurls is less fear-reacting aimed to divide us and more love-responding aimed to keep us united. And that, my friends, is how we build a generation of insightful warriors, not blind worriers. 😉
