Be Your Own Visionary in 2019

In the old days, people would gather around the fire to tell stories about the luminaries heroes of old who left behind their wisdom of how to live a good life. These trusted visionaries came in many forms. Their words and actions lit the the way for the future generations as we moved to the next era and through new phases of life. These traditions are so ingrained in every culture that most of us are used to waiting for a messenger to come along and tell us what we need to do next.  We’ve been conditioned to be passive, to way for something outside of ourselves to give us guidance, to inspire us, or to give us encouragement before we make necessary changes in our lives. But what if there is a vision inside of you that is waiting to reveal itself? What if you don’t realize that you are the one holding it back?

When we feel that a necessary change is coming, the vision will stir deep inside. This inner wisdom will send us clues in our dreams or by making a song stick in our heads where the lyrics remind us of what we wish to happen next. If the vision remains trapped inside, we can feel irritated for no apparent reason or even exceedingly bored with our daily lives.

When a vision is trying to surface, we don’t need a visionary to tell us what will happen next. We need to be the visionary for ourselves. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you don’t need help. It means that you need a different kind of help in the form of a patient, accepting space to pour out your thoughts and feelings. You may also need a clear mirror to reflect back to you who you are becoming, because it is hard to see ourselves from an outside perspective without some assistance.

We feel a vision before we see. We see a vision before we know what it means. But once we know it, we can make plans to change our lives in a way that brings new contentment and fulfillment. I wish you clarity and wholeness in 2019.
