Why Your Vision is Vital, Right Now

Why Your Vision is Vital, Right Now
by BlackLion

I remember when I got so wound up by the news with “government this” and “how could they do that” mentality. To the point where a general malaise came over me; too much junk to comprehend, let alone deal with.

We are independent and freedom-loving people. Equality for all, heck yeah. Justice no matter what. Community-minded, making sure every one has enough. The Feminine Divine is as much revered as the Sacred Masculine.

Your unique vision can and will change the world for the betterment of all.

I’ve transformed, and you can too.

So how did I do it?

Sure, I wasn’t any good at meditation or yoga or affirmations, or any of that at the time. I was working in a corporate job that had changed from fun to meaningless, and I wasn’t helping anyone by pining for summer adventures and fresh air instead of cubicles and plexiglass. I knew something had to change. I had a vision of better.

Today, meditation and visualization have become a wonderful and permanent part of my spiritual practices.

When I first found play and the Feminine Divine, I discovered a whole new possibility to have a personal and intimate conversation with the sacred. By recognizing my integral part in my relationship with the Universe, I have since found magnificent and lasting ways to change the habit of not being enough or not seeing the vision through.

When you allow yourself the quiet, the deep reflection, the mirror that your shadow self can provide, you will find answers to those vexing limitations that are perceived outside of you. No longer does anyone of any political, religious, or dogmatic persuasion have a hold on me. I choose what is best for me and what I perceive as the highest good.

It’s true of you as well. The blessings you have to offer are so invaluable and needed right now.

I call B.S. on anyone that says they can’t make a difference. YOU are the difference maker. Your decisions guide your whole life. Discover your core beliefs, fix those that are broken, update the ones that no longer serve you and create new ones that best serve you and your mission. When you hone in on your highest truth, your greatest vision of what you can offer singularly to this precious world unfolds.

How do you get there? Grab some scissors, magazines, and glue to make your own vision board. Tune into the mindset and connectedness that you feel after a delicious guided meditation drummed to your core. When you collect together with like-minded change-makers and visionaries, you’ll access more clarity, depth, and collaborative essence. Together, you can’t help but skyrocket your vision into the stratosphere.

What truly matters is that you love your vision.

Sure, you could focus on more debt, more pains, more suffering, more inequality, more whatever, more “I can’t believe what he just did.” Until you are in full alignment with your true mission here on Earth, you probably won’t be full invested in it, and will fall back into the rut of the status quo.

The time is now to take hold of your vision. Own it. Be it. Act it. Love it!

You can’t possibly have a terrible trip and end up at the happy ending. You must own your power to choose what is best for each moment. You owe it to yourself to do what feels better. Bathe yourself in relief and trust and knowing your vision is calling you forward to do your wild thing, your way.

Now imagine your tribe each doing their best thing, each of you positively influenced by your success at going for your vision, full steam ahead. Even if you’ve held your vision for a while now, new insights and inspirations can come from unexpected places.

Nurture yourself and your vision with intention and self-love, regularly.

That doesn’t mean what you do already, like going to the gym, taking care of the house, being a loving partner, writing to your representatives, and helping out at the soup kitchen are to be taken lightly. These are the cornerstones of your individual yet common connections to your family, friends and community.

But taking that moment for yourself and your deep “why” is priceless, too.

Step up to bravely face whatever contrast that may be currently present, yet with pure YOU truth in your vision. You get to choose what you most want. You get to choose how you live life. You get to say how your world evolves, with your intentions and focus on your soul’s vision.

That’s why living your vision is so vital to changing the world.

The world will change to your vision if you believe it will. You’ll be inspired to take the right actions at the right time with the right people.

Boom, wow, how did it get to better so fast?

The power you wield can move mountains, feed children, right wrongs, and galvanize communities. Your vision is the conduit to a fulfilling and meaningful life, making a difference and raising the Feminine Divine to greater and greater heights with your love and caring.

Accessing Your Deep Vision

Accessing Your Deep Vision
by Starcat

Inside of you is a powerful connection point, a link to your soul’s deepest vision. Some people feel it in their heart center. Others experience a tug in the gut. Still others hear a whispering voice that offers gems of wisdom.

This is your intuition.

When you’re overwhelmed or stressed or freaked out – as many of us are right now, about the state of our world, especially – it can be hard to hear your intuition.

Yet that’s just when you need it most.

You need the “big picture” wisdom that your soul can provide. You need to know that not only will everything be alright – truly, even if The End of the World As We Know It comes – but that your gifts are vital to the collective whole.

You need a big, deep, inspiring vision.

Yours might be that book you’ve been longing to write, being there for your kids as they grow, ending world hunger, or finally learning to love yourself. No vision is too big or too small.

Once you’ve discovered your most compelling vision, you can find a way to get there. You can use inspired action steps, collaboration, the Law of Attraction, take classes, seek out mentors and practice regularly. These things are the DOing part.

Discovering your big vision, though, or refining it if you’ve caught just a glimpse, requires quiet. It requires just BEing, which is something that many of us find challenging.

The thing is, your vision already exists. You don’t need to create it. Your soul is on a mission (or several missions), and all you need to do is listen to discover it.

To get really super quiet, and listen within.

More than once.

It takes prioritizing YOU and your deep desires, which can be uncomfortable or even scary.

Really, though, it’s easy to DO – because it’s all about BEing.

Take just 5 minutes at the start – or end – of your day. Or right there in the middle, at a park bench at lunchtime or in your own backyard. When and how doesn’t much matter.

Sit. Let yourself just BE. Close your eyes. Let the external world fade away. Embrace the stillness.

Fidget if you need to, or walk in the woods if you can’t manage to sit quietly – don’t judge yourself. Just find that still point of connection, in your own way.

Be fully present.

Listen within. Feel the messages your soul has for you, just waiting for you to pay close attention.

You can do this. You are being called. You are part of the rising of the Feminine Divine, of the paradigm shift that is underway.

Ignore the news, the backlash of the patriarchy, the expectations and shoulds and endless tasks. Let it all go – just for five minutes each day – and listen to your deep intuitive wisdom.

It’s not self-indulgent. Your gifts are essential to the whole.

Now is the time for action, certainly. The time for change-making and activism and making yourself heard.
But the first step is to connect to your own big-picture vision first.

Get solid on your mission. Honor your soul work. From there, the expansion will begin.

===

Are you longing to do this deep visioning work in an intimate group of collaborators? In order to create powerful positive change, it will take each of us connecting deeply with our unique vision for the future and serving the new Feminine Divine paradigm from an uplifted, inspired space.

Why Even Coaches Have Coaches

Why Even Coaches Have Coaches
By BlackLion

You may be surprised to know that even the most successful coaches and mentors in the world themselves have coaches and mentors that they rely upon. No matter who you are or what you do, there is always someone out there who knows something more – or sees things differently – than you.

It’s certainly true that there is absolutely nothing wrong with who you are or what you are doing. Every one of us is a unique bundle of starlight, with atoms forged at the center of a supernova.

The real question is, are you living your life in a way that:

  • lights your spark?
  • feels like you’re becoming who you’ve always wanted to be?
  • keeps you living in a lifestyle that best suits you and the planet?
  • encourages cornucopias of growth and transformation?

There is one constant in the Universe…change. With change comes the need to adapt to new circumstances as they come up. What I’ve found is that change can be either a blessing in disguise or a lurking monster…and you get to choose how to interpret the change for yourself!

I’ve decided to choose love instead of fear.

How about you?

Sometimes change feels scary and old stumbling blocks trip us up once in awhile. This is why coaches have coaches. No one knows all the answers, even if they say that they do (including the monkey-mind voices in your head). We all desire to change and grow and become better people, in whatever way that feels best to us.

By learning from those who are where you want to be, you can adapt, emulate, and translate what they have to offer into actual change in positive ways in your own life.

Coaches love having coaches!

You get to lay yourself out on the line, trust the Universe for the right advice, right thoughts, right moments to grace your life. When you work with a coach, you are creating a bond, a trust between you so that you can be vulnerable. Being vulnerable is divine. You are absolutely present in the now, come what may.

This is spirit in action.

My coach is Jeannette Maw at Good Vibe University, and I say “Wow!” She is a bright light of laughter and wisdom. I’ve only been with her a short time and zowie, my Law of Attraction (LOA) juices are flowing. I think the catalyst for me was her “Yes!” attitude and glee for life. Our collective calls are so astute, profound, and at times we laugh out loud so hard! Like when I was Geeking out on Self-Care last month.

Starcat’s coach, who she adores, is Britt Bolnick of In Arms Coaching. Britt is a business coach who puts the deep inner work on equal footing with the outer steps, and has built an amazing tribe of heart-centered women entrepreneurs. What a vast network of tuned-in, turned-on co-creators!

In the magickal environment my coach has created with other like mind co-creators at GVU, I’d say my manifestation skills and intentions have become hyperactive! I am more aligned with my faerie play self than I’ve been for a long time. And did I even mention the whiz-bang of Jeannette’s own coach, Jeanna Gabellini? What an insightful laugh riot!

Adding the support of an uplifting coach can give you just the boost you need to become even more your authentic self.

Forgive me as I math-geek-out on you for a moment. Let’s be vectors. You have an amplitude, a measure of energy intensity. You have a direction, a measure of your true arrow. Whatever you think, becomes.

If you are aiming toward your and everyone’s highest good, the actions you take increase the amplitudes of all concurrent frequencies in sumptuous ways. Having the support of a coach increases the amplitude toward the things you’re already moving towards, and she bolsters your trajectory to stay pointed in the direction of your choosing.

Sound good?

Now, don’t get me wrong. It’s not like anyone is doing anything for me – the inner work, that is. No one else can “make” you do anything. Only when you are aligned with yourself can any of the true magick happen.

A coach is a great catalyst to get you there.

So, regardless of who you choose as a coach or mentor, the lessons you learn can be that resonant lift of energy you’ve longed to feel. The direction you choose is always still up to you. For me, I’ve decided to be a vector of good cheer.

How about you?

What action can you take to find the support that will help power your journey to the stars?

Where does your authentic tribe hang out?

What would an ideal coach or mentor feel like to you?

In what stuck areas in your life do you want more momentum forward that the catalyst of a coach or tribe would fulfill?

What vector are you moving faster towards?

Want to kindle or rekindle your connection with the Feminine Divine? Wouldn’t it be nice to finally choose to nurture yourself rather than repeat those routine memes over and over again? Ready to make a decision to fully be responsible for your gifts and dare to share them with the world? Ready to release those pesky old beliefs that are holding you back and live the life of your dreams? Are you ready to commit to a magickal life that you’ll savor day in and day out?
