CREATING A NEW LANDSCAPE OF POWER
From Competition to Collaboration
Everyone wants to move into the future in a better way. Be brighter and more impactful versions of themselves, but we’ve been brought up with the belief that competition not collaboration is inherent to success. We often look at others as possible threats and feel the urge to fight for what’s ours rather than work with all the resources we’ve been given. Living in a constant state of competition rather than collaboration can create a cutthroat environment in both the personal and professional realms. It cuts spirit off from body and keep us stuck fighting or fleeing, rather than growing and thriving. Holding the mindset that perceives other’s success as a threat, makes it difficult to stay focused on and move toward the fulfilment of your own greatest dreams and desires.
Flipping the script and collaborating with, what the conditioned mind views as a threat, is one way to harness your genius and tap into your potential. Former foes become allies. Obstacles, trauma or challenges become mentors we work with to melt energy off the projections and limitations the rational mind has used to keep our genius stuck, suppressed and small. Without flipping the script we are unable to see into the powerful landscapes we hold within. Visioneering is about finding that landscape, and recognizing the depth of support, nurturance and genius that lives there and waits to move through us into the future and into form.
From Thinking to Sensing
We’ve been brought up in a society that often advocates rational decision making. We have been taught to make every choice with the thinking mind, when in fact we are capable of living in direct and dynamic relationship to the world, without the mental faculties incessantly deferring our enjoyment of life by coming to comment on it, judge it, ensconce it in labels, differentiation, meaning and identity.
The fact of the matter is the cognitive mind often misses red flags. The body actually knows before the brain does who or what is beneficial or toxic for you. The senses are a palette of endless creative consciousness opening self into direct contact with the world through infinite colors, energetic textures and the incandescent feelings of being alive. The senses communicate to us a continual harvest of brilliance, wisdom and intuition, free from any absorbed influences or residue of the past. As you tune into the sensory body rather than the thinking mind you connect with your innate intuition, and contact your own unique reality, your “power guide” in authentic decision making and fulfillment of personal happiness. In other words... Ask the body not the mind.
From Constructs to Creativity
In any given moment a lot of intel runs through the mind. It’s our self talk. More often than not, that voice can play a highly judgmental role acting as an inner critic that cautions us away from risk and tells us how to fix and better ourselves. However, that’s not the role true self-to-self talk should serve. Because we’ve been separated from the imagistic, non-rational Feminine Mind for so long, we’ve lost our ability to truly understand this voice and the vision it bestows. Another, softer voice exists below the inner critic, that celebrates you as it re-frames the ordinary on a cosmic level and mirrors what is possible. It is a voice that encourages you to create, reminds you of the upsides of risks and points out your resourcefulness. It is only by first befriending and then silencing the inner critic that we can access this more meaningful, all-seeing voice. One powerful way to do this is to focus on what you did right in your life, what you accomplished, rather than what brought you shame or made you feel inept. This simple shift helps connect us to what makes us unique and when practiced routinely will have an incredible impact on how you sail your ideas and inspirations out into the world.
From Criticism to Encouragement
When interacting with others, we’re often taught to focus on what’s wrong, rather than what’s right, unique or inspiring. Have you ever considered doing the opposite? Brain science shows that what we focus on grows. Focus on what you don’t like in another person or yourself, and you’ll find this magnified. Similar to setting an intention and waiting for it to manifest, an adjustment in how you view yourself and the world around you could make a huge difference in how you access your genius, wisdom and infinite potential. Complements and celebrating self are simple practices that build intimacy within the internal system of consciousness and anxious conditioning is replaced with positive expressions and images. As affirmations circulate through the waking mind, the nervous system is grounded and self is radically nurtured and loved. You are reminded how it feels to be comfortable in your own skin, beautiful inside and out. You will be amazed by how quickly reframing what you focus on tones the nervous system, shifts experiences from negative to positive and opens the mind to consider new and exciting possibilities.
It's Brain Science
Visioneering uses a unique methodology called Gateless to move participants out of the very subtle state of fight or flight we tend to find ourselves in with contemporary culture and into a creative landscape of limitless possibilities. This methodology is based on brain science studies at Johns Hopkins, Stanford, Harvard and the National Institute of Health which have found that criticism activates the fight or flight mechanism in the brain and limits access to the pre-frontal cortex.
Visioneering reverses the pattern. By silencing the part of the brain associated with criticism and focusing on core strengths and natural talent, we move into the incredible landscape of the imaginative mind. In Visioneering we are able to see through human conditioning and find our true power and innate creative potency. In Visioneering you start as an apprentice and become a Vision Keeper of your own life.
Not only does this process create outward success and inner healing, you will also experience the potency of creative community and the bliss of inner exploration. To find a Visioneering program that’s right for you, check out our Into The Hive Courses and Creative Escapes Retreats.
