Vision as a guide: Come into your creative power

Who do you want to be? What do you want your life to look like? How do you want it to feel? What do you want for your future? That's a lot of questions to ask. But have you ever asked yourself any of them seriously? We would like to introduce you step by step to the topic of vision and vision work and show you how to get into your creative power.

Vision: What is vision work?

In school we learn nothing about the fact that we actively create our lives. With all the challenges and lucky streaks that surround us. Maybe you're hearing it for the first time now, too. We'll go into more detail about this aspect later in the article. But the fact is, everything that's happening in your life right now - negative or positive - you've created for yourself. How? With your thoughts, which determine you. With your mindset, which influences you. And with your energy, which surrounds you and which you radiate.

Vision work is about daring to look into your personal sphere of the future. Because visions help you actively shape your future life. "A vision is a signpost that reminds us again and again where we actually want to go," Christina and Walter Hommelsheim explain in their book "Heart Over Head - The Simple Formula for a Happy Life".. "Just steer your life where you want to go! You can do that? Yes, you can. Visions help you to do that", the Greator coach trainers know too well from their own experience.

What distinguishes a vision from a goal?

Vision is not directly comparable to a goal. You may have also heard, "To be successful, I just need to set big goals. Then I'll just march along and eventually I'll get there." Goals usually refer to things on the outside. Like a car or a house. But goals don't make you happy in the long run. Because what happens after we achieve them?

A vision is about something completely different. Goals are often about "having", whereas visions are about "being". That is, who and how you want to be and live in the future. It's about the feelings and values you associate with it. A vision has more to do with qualities that you cannot "achieve". It reflects how you want to be and feel.

How do I visualize?

When you are engaged in vision, you may feel full of confidence and trust in the Vision Work into the unknown. "With a vision, we determine the direction in which we want to steer, but we don't yet know the 'how'. This is precisely the reason why many people don't even bother with it," explains expert Christina Grahn-Hommelsheim.

To get to the bottom of your vision, look more closely at the following questions:

  1. What kind of life do you want?
  2. What do you want it to look like?
  3. How do you want it to feel?
  4. What do you want in your life?
  5. Who and how do you want to be in your life?
  6. What movie would you like to see about your life?

Hero Story: How Alexandra Found the Courage to Live Her Dreams

Alexandra was a successful lawyer. She represented important clients and earned good money. Actually, Alexandra had everything she needed to be happy. And yet there was a little voice in the back of her mind telling her, "There's more. Actually, you want to do something completely different." As a teenager, Alexandra always wanted to be a writer. But she was always told: "Writing is a dead art. You'd better learn something solid, my child."

So Alexandra decided to become a lawyer. Now that she had reached the top, Alexandra found that she was completely unhappy. Tears were streaming down her face: she felt like she was nothing more than a puppet of social conventions.

She was ashamed of not following her dreams. So she summoned up all her courage and drew a line under it. A line under the life she didn't want to live. Which also meant no longer working as a lawyer. Alexandra left the old life behind, listened to her heart and started writing.

After half a year, she held her first novel in her hands. Alexandra had never felt happier. Her pride grew even greater when a well-known publisher published the novel. It landed on the bestseller list and Alexandra could finally earn money doing something she loved. Never before had the feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction been so present in her.

For your vision: Observe the law of attraction

As promised at the beginning of this article, we'd like to take a closer look at the Law of Attraction. "Does it really work that I co-create my life?" you may be asking yourself right now. "That what I think comes to me?" - "Yes, especially when each of us goes his heart's way and wants to build something completely new, our old self likes to knock again and put us to the test!", explain Christina and Walter Hommelsheim.

Coaches know all too well how challenging it can be to transform your thoughts into positivity. "There's so much doubt that you almost automatically let yourself retreat into old structures. Into the familiar. Into the familiar. That's where you feel at home. That's where you feel safe. In your comfort zone. In those moments, ask yourself, "Can I really be sure I still want the old? Does this have anything to do with my vision? Do I believe in myself?" Those are two very important questions. "You may not be able to do this right now with a clear... Yes answer. But stick to your truth. Stay true to yourself," Christina recommends.

If you want to learn more about the law of attraction, we have here a nice article for you.

Vision: How to come into your creative power

Now you may create a wonderful film out of your images of your future - your Mindmovie - as the spiritual teacher for change, Dr. Joe Dispenza... It's a movie that's got you hooked from the second you see it. One that captivates you. One that touches you. Incorporate music into this film that makes your heart beat faster. Create a vision film that makes you say and feel, "Yeah, mega. That's me! This is my vision." As tools for the film you can use:

  1. APPs like Inshot
  2. Programs like Adobe Spark
  3. iMovie on the iPhone
  4. Or you can make yourself a large poster with pictures of all areas of your life. Give this mind map a special place in your four walls.

Visions may contain material aspects. And you may spin together in your visions everything that you wish. Visions know no limits, no rules, no laws, no can't-do's. "Of course, vision alone is not enough. You also get to move into action and make it happen. Or take small steps to make them come true. Get active and implement," Walter advises you. "We have the power to achieve anything we dream of in our lives. You are fully responsible for everything you do. And what you don't do."
