How many of us have wondered at one time or another, “What is my purpose?”  We have a sense that there may be more to life than that which we are currently experiencing.  And yet the “more” remains elusive.  We typically look outside ourselves to fill any void we may be feeling.  This approach will never bring us the peace and fulfillment that we long for, and sense is possible.

The Universal Creative Intelligence desires expression through and as each of us.  Consider the process of conception to birth.  There is an Intelligence that is growing us, living us.  Every day our hearts beat, our lungs provide the breath of life, and our organs function according to their purpose.   And all of this without our taking thought for it. 

Could there be an Intelligence that we can tap into that will guide and direct our lives?  Are we individual expressions of “Something” much bigger than our personalities?

The Life Visioning Process is a spiritual practice, and a way of life, developed by Rev. Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith of the Agape International Spiritual Center. Rev. Michael suggests that we:

“Begin with the understanding that we are all spiritual beings and we have the opportunity to consciously participate in the evolution of our own soul.”

How do we consciously participate?  We enter into the silence, let go of all personal desires, and allow our minds to become still.  We contemplate the Love/Intelligence that created the universe and realize our Oneness with it.  We become a space for deep listening and ask a series of questions.  Following each question we allow the ideas to come forth.  We are open to the impressions, feelings, sounds, smells, words, and pictures that are revealed in answer to each question.  The highest idea for each of our lives is present within our own soul. 

Vision Process

In order to open to the vision for your life ask:
What is the highest idea for my life? 
What part am I to play in this world?   
What am I as the fulfillment of the Infinite?
What does it look like, feel like, sound like?
What desires expression through and as me?

For the vision to manifest, we must embody it.  We must grow in order that it can unfold as each of us:
What must I become in order for this vision to manifest? 
How must I grow?
What must I let go of in order for the highest idea to unfold?
 
Commit to the vision, to seeing it and being it.

Complete the process by giving thanks, knowing that the vision is already complete in the Universal Mind, and release it.

Record that which has been revealed in a journal.  Continue recording each visioning session.  Over time, the vision will become clearer and more refined.  The vision already exists.  Our transformation is required in order that the vision may be made manifest as each of us.  As we embrace new ways of being and thinking, and release that which does not serve the highest idea, the vision will unfold organically.  This is a process of allowing… aligning with what already IS.  It is about becoming a participant in the evolution of human consciousness.  This is how we change the world and live a phenomenally rich life… beyond anything our personal self ever imagined!

“Before you tell your life what you intend to do with it,
listen for what it intends to do with you.”

Parker Palmer, “Let Your Life Speak”

 

I highly recommend Rev. Michael’s Audio CD on the subject:
