Grounding in the NOW, Dreaming the FUTURE
When we know where we want to be, but aren’t quite sure how to get there, it can be really difficult to create a clear vision of the future and can also make it challenging to feel grounded in the now as you spend so much time in your head.
The ritual we are sharing today helps you ground down and be present in the current moment so you can access your future self and co-create the bridge to the life you are desiring and dreaming of.
When you live in a space of authenticity, in alignment with your own truth, and on your spiritual path, you will inevitably experience periods of transformation. Activities, foods, possibly even friendships that once brought you joy may stop resonating with you. It doesn’t mean you won’t ever again eat those foods or spend time with those individuals; it simply means your soul is calling you to experience something else.
This ritual helps in times of change. It can be scary to reinvent yourself and not know what is on the other side, but trust that you are fully supported. The labradorite helps you access the new frequency you are stepping into, while the sunstone helps you take action in times of change.
BEST TIME OF DAY: Anytime
TIME NEEDED: 20 minutes
FREQUENCY: Seasonally, monthly, or as frequently needed
WHAT YOU’LL NEED: Labradorite and sunstone
1 Sit with the labradorite in your left hand and the sunstone in your right hand. Close your eyes and deepen your breath.
2 State out loud: “I call upon my future self for support and assistance for my highest possible outcome.”
3 Deepen your breath and visualize your future self 1 year from now. Your future self sits in front of you, smiling warmly, and is excited to see you and is supportive of your current transition.
4 What does she look like? What is she wearing? How does she feel? What does she smell like? Is she holding anything? Take note and feel her presence. Ask her: How did you get to where you are now? What steps can you take now on your journey?
5 Thank her for her support and guidance as she warmly blesses your sunstone and says she is available to support and help you every step of the way. 6 Say out loud or to yourself: “I welcome new opportunity and expression of my highest self.”
7 Take a moment to honor how far you’ve come and all you’ve faced and overcome to be who you are today. Place your hand on your heart and acknowledge the woman you are uncovering and all of the parts of yourself that are integrating and expanding.
8 Hold the vision of your future self in your mind’s eye and imagine “imprinting” this vision into the sunstone.
9 Take a deep breath and open your eyes.
10 Carry the sunstone with you for 40 days.
