Do you have a dream or vision you want to accomplish? If so, you’ll have to change your behaviors and beliefs to get to the next step towards it. Do you know what those changes might be? Your inner self knows what they are. Join me for this guided meditation to discover what it is you need to do to get to your next step.



Transcript:
I’m Linda-Ann Stewart, Heartvision Consulting, vision strategist, hypnotherapist, speaker. Do you have a dream or a vision you want to achieve? It could be personal, such as reducing weight or developing a talent, or it could be professional, such as building your business or getting a promotion.

Whatever it is, you may have unsuccessfully tried various tactics to get to the next step towards it. You may have done more of what you’re doing now, and it hasn’t worked. That’s because what you’ve done to get to where you are now won’t help you to get to the next step.

That takes some thinking about, doesn’t it? To take the next step along your journey, you have to upgrade your thoughts, behaviors, decisions and habits. You can’t just do more of the same or, “If you always do what you’ve always done, (you know the rest) you’ll always get what you’ve always gotten.” Right?

So what do you need to do differently to get to the next step along your way? That’s what I want to help you discover with this video. Because you have everything within you that you need to get to that next level. You just haven’t uncovered it yet.

I’d like to share a short meditation that can begin opening doors to the answers you seek. Even if you don’t get anything specific during this meditation, you’re asking your deepest self, subc, some questions. And it doesn’t like unanswered questions. Its role is to creatively find solutions. So just asking the questions will start to open doors within you.

If you don’t want to participate in the meditation, just keep your eyes open and listen to my questions. Don’t try to answer them consciously. Just keep an open mind. If you want to join in the meditation, close your eyes now. Take a deep breath.

What do you truly want in your life? Think about it, in specific, in detail. Imagine being at the next step to getting there. How does your life look like at this next step? How does it feel? Imagine being in that position in the future, at the next step…. and imagine looking back to where you are now. What have you changed to get to that next step? What have you let go of or shifted? How have your beliefs and attitudes changed?

How would someone at that level think… what would they do… what decisions would they make? From that position, what would you tell the current you about what you did to get there? From that position, what insight or understanding do you want to share with your current self to help move you forward?

Return to your current self and life, bringing with you the insight and knowledge you were given. Remembering how it felt to have made it to the next level of your journey. Open your eyes.

Just asking these questions will start your subconscious working on the issue. Pay attention to any insights that come to you. Once you focus on where you want to go, it signals the subconscious to pay more attention to anything that might be pertinent. You may have an opportunity come your way that you would have ignored before. But because you’re willing to move forward, you recognize it now.

Thank you for watching and spending time with me. There is a way for you to get to your dream. You won’t be able to make the leap to it all at once. But you can take incremental steps to take you up the ladder to accomplishing it. And being open to making the changes necessary will get you there so much faster. Take care.

Would you like to have more abundance in your life? For the most part, the only person preventing it is you. Focusing on negative ideas limits your subconscious mind from finding opportunities in your life. The converse is also true. When you focus more on the positive, your subconscious seeks to help you achieve what you expect. This is a meditation to expand your acceptance of abundance so that your subconscious mind is primed to find it for you.



Transcript:
Would you like to have more abundance in your life? That’s a stupid question, isn’t it? Of course you would. So what’s preventing it? Believe it or not, for the most part, you are. Your old belief in struggle and lack are limiting the amount of abundance you accept. Those old ideas are causing difficulties in your life, because they’re what you expect. And your subconscious tries to help you achieve what you expect.

Another reason you may be restricting abundance is that you may feel uneasy accepting more. Have you ever felt that way? If so, you’re not alone. Many of my clients have had this issue. But that thought pattern is simply a shredded remnant from the past and doesn’t need to affect you anymore.

I’d like to lead you through a short meditation to open yourself to accepting more abundance into your life. When you do, you program your subconscious to scan the environment and seek to create it for you.

Linda-Ann Stewart of Heartvision Consulting, and I’m a vision strategist. You know how women business owners and entrepreneurs spin their wheels and get stuck as their business runs them? Using my 30 years of background as a hypnotherapist, I help them take charge, create strategies that keep them on track and accelerate their business to the next level and beyond. They align their heart with their vision and bring their vision into reality.

To begin to accept more abundance, you have to start with envisioning it flowing to you and then your accepting it. Now, abundance means many things. Health, harmony, peace, joy, prosperity and much more. What does abundance mean to you? How would it feel to have more of it in your life? Let’s start opening yourself up to that.

Close your eyes. Breath. Using your imagination, in any way that works for you, imagine a warm energy, a gold light, like sunshine, flowing down from the heavens towards you. It’s safe and comforting as it approaches. You welcome it. You know that it wants the best for you.

Imagine that you raise your arms to greet it, and create a funnel for it to pour into you. This energy is pure abundance, pure love, pure harmony, grace, joy, health, and all good things. This abundance guides, directs and inspires you along the next steps of your life. Ideas and solutions appear in your mind. New doors open, opportunities show up. Ideas and solutions appear in your mind. Your prosperity expands as you allow more abundance to flow into you. You are at peace as your acceptance of greater abundance grows.

This energy brings avalanches of abundance into your life. You expect the best to happen for you in any situation. Imagine everything falling into place for you. That this energy allows all of your needs be met. You are filled to overflowing the this energy of the abundance of all good. This abundance eases every step you take, making your way smooth and easy.

A golden river of light and good energy pours into and through you into your world, into every situation and circumstance in your life. You embrace this light and energy, allowing it to fill every part of your mind and body. You feel secure, uplifted and joyous. As you go about your day, you remind yourself of this abundance flowing into you, through you and into your world. When you’re ready, open your eyes.

I recommend you take a minute or two every morning to practice this. You may be surprised at what happens when you practice it regularly. Unexpected good will probably come your way. It does in mine when I remember to practice it. Synchronicities can happen to benefit you. I’ve won gift cards and had unexpected opportunities land in my lap. The imagery doesn’t take long and you have everything to gain.

If you’d like some help in achieving your goals, apply for a complimentary Clarify Your Vision coaching consultation.

I would love to hear how your life responds when you practice this meditation.

Sparks of InsightWhat spiritual disciplines are you doing to expand your awareness? Are you meditating each day, saying affirmations, acknowledging the goodness of the Universe in each situation, or some other activity? If you aren’t, then you’re closing off the flow of the Universe. Each day you need to touch into your spiritual core to renew yourself. Choose something, even if it’s only a five minute meditation every morning. A spiritual discipline keeps you on track and makes sure that you remember to exercise your connection to the Infinite.

Spiritual Economics: The Principles and Process of True Prosperity
by Eric Butterworth

I love the prosperity writings of Joseph Murphy and Catherine Ponder. They are loaded with belief changing techniques and affirmations. This book comes to the subject from a slightly different perspective, and it was one that helped me release limited attitudes that I didn’t even know I had.

In the first chapter, the author explains that we are immersed in the substance of prosperity. That we cannot be separated from it, and we already have all the substance right where we are. As the book progresses, Eric Butterworth addresses many of the incorrect ideas that we’ve accepted, including our lack of self-worth. In the chapter on visualization, he describes it as “seeing from a consciousness of ever-present substance” instead of mainly picturing material objects.

Although it’s a book mainly about prosperity, it also is one that raises the reader’s spiritual awareness. Each page is packed with attitude shifting and consciousness expanding ideas and concepts. Anyone who reads this book and practices the concepts will experience an incredibly improved quality of life.

Sparks of InsightIf you feel stalled or stuck in some area of your life, meditate on it and ask for guidance. The answer is within you. Visualize and affirm the solution. If there isn’t some progress within a reasonable period of time, take some constructive action. The movement may be in the direction of your goal, or it may be in a complementary area. Simply begin to channel energy to get things moving, for action begets action. More than likely, there will be some development or direction for you.

Positive Imaging: The Powerful Way to Change Your Life
by Norman Vincent Peale

I’ve worked with visualization and imaging for over forty years, and in that time have read many books on the subject. This is one of the best books I’ve read that not only describes the process, but also explains how it can specifically help in various aspect of your life.

Dr. Peale doesn’t define imaging as a magical process that alone will make all your problems disappear, but as one that opens up the way for solutions and guidance. Once the goal has been set and visualized, then there must be “discipline, determination, patience, and persistence” for the idea to become reality. Using examples and success stories, Dr. Peale explains how imaging can improve self-esteem, finances, success, worry, relationships, health, faith and much more.

Known for his wisdom and ability, Dr. Peale helps people change their attitudes towards their everyday problems. This book shows how using the natural ability of imaging, your challenges can be conquered. The technique he describes is very simple, and is used by everyone each day. I recommend it highly for anyone wanting to learn more about the important tool of visualization.

Meditation to Improve Your Self-Image

Your self-image affects everything about you and your life. The way you perceive yourself filters how you view and respond to the world. It’s built of beliefs, and beliefs can be changed. Watch and listen to this short meditation that will help you start to shift how you think about yourself so that it’s more positive.



Transcript:
Your self-image is how you perceive yourself to be. And it affects your decisions, actions, attitudes and relationships. Your self-image is the filter for who you think you are and how you respond to situations around you. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy that you make true. But you can also change it because it’s build of beliefs. And beliefs can be changed. Here’s a short meditation to get you started.

If you want, close your eyes. Take a deep breath, let it out, and relax.

Consider what is right about you. Think of the things you’ve done that have been right and good. Reflect on what’s good, valuable and worthwhile about you. Contemplate what you like about yourself – your appearance, talents, characteristics. People view you as a good person. Think of all the compliments you’ve ever been given. Accept them. Allow yourself to feel the warmth of their glow. Now, consider the person you want to be. What do you need to believe to be that person? What if you start believing it now? What would change? You can start making those changes right now. How would that feel?

Open your eyes. When your negative self-talk starts to bring you down, shift your attention to what’s positive about you. This will help to improve your self-image and will make massive changes in your world.

Read the article, 3 Steps to Improving Your Self-Image, that inspired this meditation.

How often should I use an affirmation?

Question MarkQuestion: How often should I use an affirmation to heal a chronic condition?

Answer: For any chronic condition, including physical healing, it’s recommended that a person spend ten to fifteen minutes, three times a day in dynamic meditation (using affirmations, imagery and/or visualization) or self-hypnosis (using suggestions, imagery and/or visualization). That’s to flood their subconscious with health or improvement messages. A person should use any statement or visualization that has meaning for them,  because it’s their feelings and beliefs about the situation that they’re working on.

According to Catherine Ponder, a minister and writer of books on prosperity and healing, an affirmation about a single issue needs to be stated aloud for at least fifteen minutes every day. She said that she’d never seen a situation improve with less than that. Once it’s changed, I believe that five minutes a day would probably be enough to keep it stable.
