“If you have a clear picture in your head that something is going to happen and a clear belief that it will happen no matter what then nothing can stop it. It is destined to happen. It’s perfect.” – Connor McGregor
Following on from my last blog where I mentioned finding synergy between techniques used by elite athletes or professional teams, and the spiritual experience of divine vision, to go to the next level, we learnt that ‘Visioning’ is not a one-time practice because it is an essential tool to help us gain clarity and see how to move forward.
Connor McGregor is a man divinely inspired. Wow – did I just write that!
When people watch him fight or listen to him talk most just see bravado, skill, mental and physical resilience. Some get motivated for a short time, the majority go back to mundane routine.
Next time you watch him, or any high-performance individual for that matter – consider the possibility that they are intensely in touch with their inner self, their dreams, divine inspiration, and are able to set clear goals and visualise outcomes – it simply works – it happens – it’s the way things are meant to be.
This isn’t a light read, and some of us might not be as connected as Mr McGregor to our dreams, but it’s something one can learn with some focus and practice.
Divine Visioning is a powerful exercise that needs an element of ‘follow up’ in order for it to be converted into the desired reality.
Visioning often uses the power of meditation to help you receive the visions that will take you forward on your soul-inspired creative work.
Your vision isn’t something that needs to be created—it already exists within you and is connected to one of many quantum possibilities that already exist. (The science is complicated and a topic for another post).
Let us explore one way in which we can get quiet enough on the inside to hear the intelligence and messages waiting to be discovered! One way of doing this is to quieten the mind and begin to ask yourself questions for example:
“Universe, what do you want me to know?”
“What project is for my greatest good and for the greatest good of all?”
Then sit with the question(s) while in a meditative state and have a pen and paper handy so that you can take notes of any insights that arise – look to see if there is a clear next step.
By taking the time to practice visioning, and reflecting on what did come up may provide the opportunity to move on to the next phase of manifestation.
Goal setting is the catalyst for making this happen. The purpose of setting a goal is to achieve the desired result to get you from where you are now to where it is you want to be – but it requires completion. So once connected with the vision-specific goals will aid you in actualizing the vision – stepping stones as it were, on the path that leads to your ultimate destination.
It is here that visualization becomes a powerful technique. Using highly detailed imagery can train the mind to go after, and get what you want. The difference between meditative visioning and visualization is that meditation is restful while visualization is active.
Meditation is beyond consciousness moving beyond the realm of thinking into the realm of being, whereas visualization requires you to be alert, in a waking state and fully conscious when it is happening.
‘Visualization consciously sets energy in motion. When your actions match your intent, the laws of physics align and magic happens.’ ~LeAura Alderson
We guide our thoughts to visualize the best-case scenario or use our imagination to have a full-five sensory experience. Guided visualization is valuable once basic goals to the ultimate vision have been determined.
So the basic structure involves beginning with your vision and imagining something the way you would envision it. To achieve your ultimate reality, and without getting hung up on limitations, let your imagination connect with your wildest aspirations.
As you connect with one of your goals try to make it so meaningful that once achieved you will be left with a high level of accomplishment to the extent that you are super motivated to set your next goal.
Once connected with your goal, imagine what your life will be like once you have completed it. Step into this visual representation, be mindful of the sensory perceptions to create real feelings and notice where you are and who is with you.
Without going into too much detail – you get the idea!
There are countless guided visualizations on the internet and my advice is that you choose one that works best for you and then practice…because Vision without action is merely a dream!
Here is Connor McGregor’s perspective and an amazing journey.
