Burn four candles in each direction.
In meditation, say to yourself,
What makes you feel most alive?
I want to ask you a few questions, and while doing so, I will give you my answers as an example.
First, sit and take a deep breath.
What makes you happy?
(ex. I am happy being with my tribe
when I am showing love,
and when I am being productive.)
What really makes you happy?
(ex. I am really happy when I am surrounded in nature. When I am in ceremony. When people around me are getting along. Also, being in trance.)
What change would you like to see in the world?
(ex. I would like to see people live with less anxiety.)
Take a deep breath, hold, hold, and breath out. Repeat those three times.
What do you want?
(ex. I want to be separated from the stress and needs of society. I want to be with my loved ones living self sustainably.)
What does your deeper self-desire?
(ex. I desire to draw inspiration from my loved ones, creating deep, passionate art while living in “flow.”)
(ex2. My deeper self-desire to apply my education to feed, cloth, and provide for my tribe while spending as much time with them meanwhile being heard and appreciated.)
What puts you in a trance like state?
(ex. Reading puts me in a trance like state. Dancing, music, sex, and movement put me in a trance like state. Massage and touch can get me in a trance like state. Art, poi, yoga and sitting in meditation help me fall into a trance like state. Being in the middle of the desert under the stars, a fire these things contribute to a trance like state.)
What are you afraid of?
(ex. I’m afraid of how my words and actions hurt myself and others. I’m afraid of failing. I’m afraid I’m not good enough.)
What are you chasing but not achieving?
(ex. I am chasing higher education, luxuries, and travel.)
Who are you?
(ex. I am a woman, living in America with a loving tribe. I love nature, animals and kids. I am a writer and an artist)
Where do you want?
(ex. I aspire to be a published artist and to work for animation. I want to spend my life traveling and living self-sustainably. To have an abundance of knowledge.)
How are you going to get there?
(I’m budgeting my money. I’m giving 100% at work and I work whenever I can. I have a savings. I am practicing my art. I am committing to a higher education, when I can afford it. )
Now sit in meditation and allow yourself to transcend into your future self. Letting your passion and the motions fall into your skin and settle within you. You have the ability to become the person you desire to be. You do not give up. You see the adventure within.
