building the connection with your “future self”
In my last blog posts I often talked about the how Important it is to “get it not the state” . However I have never shared the exact technique behind it, which I got form one of my mentors.
So If you want to go into the state there are several things you have to take into consideration.
First: Do it in a situation where nobody can interrupt you. Second: play “fall out “ (not the game) but go “all in” because remember: how you do anything is how you do everything. 3rd: during the whole process keep your eyes closed. And after the breaving exercise there is a visualization where you also keep your eyes closed till the end of the exercise.
Let`s begin: there are several techniques for the breathing exercise you can do it by pushing your arms from the shoulders up into the air. But I personally recommend the “breathing through the nose ” kind as it is harder and more effective. Here you can put your arms on your knees or on your diaphragm (for more control of the breathing intensity).
Now close your eyes and start to breathe everything you have in through the nose and put your guts out. And when you can’t breathe in any more use your mouth and blow like
Put in an nice relaxation tune and let’s start!
Now this is counted as one “rip”. We do 30 rips together (I recommend do like 50 or more
Now, Remain with your eyes closed and put your palms on your knees.
Now you start to do your imagination training. Here you can separate between “becoming the future self” or “asking your future self“.
Let`s start with the “becoming ” .
Now think of an empowered belief and hold it deep inside. Is it to be more creative, more confident, more powerful more successful. Whatever it might be , lock it in your mind.
Now I want you to imagine, that in front of you is another you which is sitting and holding the empowered believe you would like to make your own. Is it be more confident, more powerful, more successful whatever it is this person holds it in demonstrated this treats effortlessly.
Now I want you to form this “self as you want and listen to your heart
Now here was that exercise to “become the future self” . But sometimes we want to have simple questions or answers rather than just having hits. For those of you. There is the second imagination exercise to “asking your future self”
Again after you have done your breaving exercise remain with the eyes closed.
Now imagine how with each and every breath it becomes you feel more relaxed. And imagine how with each breath it goes deeper and unleashes your imagination.
Now I want you to think of the moment and you
Now I want you to feel and don’t think how you are standing in a beautiful forest. And you can see how over yonder is a train cabin. Get close to that cabin and see how it looks like what the sounds are and what the smells are. This is the cabin of your future self. Now I want you to walk to the door. And see how the door is opening and you see in front of you yourself several years in the future. Say hello to your “future self” and give him/her a hug. Now see how the future self reacts and invites you to come over his place. See how the cabin looks like “. the smells and hear the sounds. Now walk with your future self to
Now these are 2 exercises I am using daily very effectively on the needs I have. Do I want to operate from a high perspective, I do the first one. Do I need to answer several questions I go for the 2nd one. Try It out and tell me how it has turned out for you.
If you got some value form it share it with your loved once. i wish you an awesome day and as always:
Do not lie to yourself and pursue your passion , now!
