How to use “Time” as a Tool
There are physical dimensions that we can see and feel, and while we can’t “see” or “feel” time, it is still something we “believe” in.
We’ve been taught that time is “measurable” forward and backward from past to future. We “verify” this through clocks, memories and stories.
Here’s the thing: If you can “think” or “imagine” the future and take action (by planning the future), you help create it…Makes sense right?
We’ve all done this.
But have you ever stopped to really think about what you are really doing?
You are CREATING…making a “thought” into a “thing”.
Every step you take towards your “plan” gives it energetic solidity.
So – it could be said that the future shapes us NOW.
Ok – you may be saying to yourself: “What about those “plans” that aren’t accomplished? Goals un-met?
And this is a great question – especially as I review my year – with my “big plan” to sell my house – (which by the way, 9 months later – I am sitting and writing in as we speak.)
Well, to that, I say this: We may have a plan and work towards it – not knowing our Spirit has is a bigger plan in the works.
One of my favorite sayings is: “If you ever want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.”
See, I cleared a lot of energy from my house in my “plan” to move.
And guess what?
Things recently popped up in my personal life that made me rethink selling my house at all.
When I look back on my life, I see many things “that didn’t go as planned”, and realize in hindsight it was for the best.
So, does this mean don’t make plans? Don’t have goals?
Here are 5 Ways to use time as a tool. As a Futurist (I predict the future) – Here’s what I know:
- The future is more important than the past in deciding the present. Don’t look back. Look ahead. Too many of us make decisions based on past experience.
- The future is continually being created. Make future based decisions. Decide where you want to be and act from THAT.
- Time is an illusion. Use “Illusion (via Imagination) to dream about your desires DAILY. Both memory and imagination are the “wormholes” of time and can be used to create or destroy a perspective.
- Go with the flow. Surrender the “how” behind your objective. Many folks look under the hood of their goals and find something completely different than the goal itself.
- That said – Review your end goal. For example, my goal to sell my house supported my end goal for financial freedom. 9 months later, I ask myself: Was it necessary for me to remove the “stuff” blocking my success from my home? Is it possible (desirable even) to keep my house while creating financial freedom?
The answers are: Yes and Yes.
As we enter the final chapter of 2015, I’m thinking about my accomplishments this birthday to birthday year. (Get your FREE Card of The Year reading here about your year HERE)
In reflection, I smile at my original plan to sell my house (Not quite at the laughing stage yet…I still have unpacking to do).
And I look at my end goal and surrender.
