Monday Motivation: 3 Steps to a New Kind of Vision Quest

Do you wish to have a greater vision for your life? 

Werner Erhard said, “We can live our lives either acting out of circumstances or acting out of a vision.”

Rising above your daily circumstances to realize your destiny cannot be done without something greater calling you. 

The Native Americans have a ritual called a vision-quest. It is a rite of passage that has no set duration but entails going alone into the wilderness to commune with nature and connect with great spirit. 

Often there is fasting, meditation, survival in the elements with the result of an organic altered state over days or weeks and a new form of vision emerges.  The goal of the vision quest is to receive a vision that is so powerful, it transitions the person into adulthood and creates a sense of an inner soul’s purpose that becomes stronger than the petty self-importance the ego caught in circumstance not destiny.  

Having direct knowing of your spiritual purpose is the hallmark of a mature human, or master who no longer can be hooked mentally or emotionally by pressures of the outside world.   

In today’s world social media and TV replace your true inner vision with illusion by the age of 3 to 6.  You are taught to think who you should be, or what you should do, or what you should have.  You are also taught to stop feeling so much and to “concentrate” on remembering all that nonsense.  From that moment on, as U2 says  “… you can never get enough of what you don’t really need…”

If you are a spiritual seeker and are having a mid-life sense of emptiness and lack of fulfillment, a vision quest may be percolating in the back of your mind. 

If so… Stop!

Many of the people whom I have worked with that have taken their week off from work and left their family to go on a vision quest, climbed the mountain, built their rock circle, drank cowboy coffee, got bug bitten, ate all their chocolate on the first day, got cold, tired and hungry and were totally disappointed. 

Then they promptly returned to an angry family and a more demanding job while feeling exhausted.  (Of course they told everyone it was amazing… but they knew that nothing of impact really happened.)

So how do you do a vision quest ritual without the bugs and cowboy coffee?

Make every day a vision quest! For that is what it is in your chakras. 

TODAY’S TIP: 3 steps to a new kind of vision quest!

1.     Take your brain out of it and enlist your chakras instead.  Your thinking brain has sight, but no vision. Your vision comes from the other 6 chakras that are connected to the universal field of consciousness that holds a very clear vision of why you were born and what you are here to do in this moment and every moment.  i.e. a vision. 

A vision is experienced as a feeling, or a pull, or a connection and a sense of fulfillment. 

A thought is a label that creates separation and isolation.  The thought of doing a vision quest by its nature cannot produce a vision unless you make this shift to the other 6 brains in your body called chakras.

2.     Start each day honoring one of your chakras for 10 minutes, then pay attention to that chakra during the day as often as you can.  If you choose your second chakra and your sensitivity and emotional needs, notice how often you don’t fully express how you are feeling or what you really want, or notice the moments when you feel connected and happy in what you are doing and who you are with.

Have a journal with you or use your mobile device that you can set to buzz every hour to remind you to pay attention to your feelings, not just your thoughts, and use it to take notes to keep track of your new awareness’s.  (BTW Using crystal bowls tuned to each chakra throughout the day in the background at work or in the car can give you an accelerated path to your inner wisdom since it bypasses your thinking mind and lets that chakra speak to you more directly) 

3.     Take a few minutes before going to bed to review what that chakras taught you about yourself and if you need another day or two on that chakra or if it is time to choose another one to learn from. 

Jung said, “Your vision can become clear only when you can look into your own heart.  Who looks outside dreams, who looks inside, awakens”

Over time you will notice that you will enhance your intuition about people and situations not because you understand them more, but because you are creating a vision within you of who you really are so the circumstances of your life don’t command you, they inform you how to follow the path with the greatest heart.

Rhys Thomas

Rhys Thomas, the founder of the Rhys Thomas Institute, has turned the art of energy healing into a science of personal empowerment.

My name is Rhys Thomas and when I turned 40, I wanted to know “why” even though I appeared to be successful in almost every part of my life and career, I still felt empty.
I became a personal growth junkie for year with no real shift. Then I got serious and attended a 4 year training in energy medicine that introduced me to chakras and so much more. Energy healing, combined with my love of marital arts helped me realize that I was not empty I had just blocked my ability to feel and see through all of my energy centers. I had blinders and didn’t know it. I was putting more attention on living societies dream of success, not my soul’s. But even this did not fully heal me, there was something missing. That is why I create my 4 Dimensional Healing system that that has awakened and deep send of empowerment, love and fulfillment in thousands of people who have worked with me. 30 day to Self-healing Through the chakras is the first leg in this system.

Now I am thrilled to be giving to you what took me 20 years to create in this 30 day training. I wish someone had give it to me 30 year ago.

This information is life like dynamite for anywhere you are stuck in your life or feeling disconnected, it has changed the lives of thousands in my programs and the institute. Now its your turn to use this wisdom to take your life, like I did from empty to fulfilled, energized and joyous.

When you say “YES” to this awakening and evolutionary journey up through the chakras you will unlock the mysteries of the world around and within you.
