One of the most important factors in taking it to the next level is understanding that before something that you desire can manifest in the physical realm, it must first be established in the spiritual realm. I discuss this in my featured YouTube video here.
What do you wish for in 2023? What do you seek to change in your life? You’ll need to think about it, imagine it, dream about it and BELIEVE that it can happen, and it will.
A view of the lake and trees
My desire for 2023 is to live in a place from which I can view Lake Ontario and some trees, too!
Right now, I have a view of tall buildings.
That’s all right. It’s a big change from the Bulgarian village where I lived for a little over ten years and from which I had a view of the Rila Mountains, the beauty of which never ceased to inspire me.
Here in Toronto, the buildings are imposing, dominant and outwardly embody the power of an industrialized country, Canada.
This is all good, but I desire a view of the lake (and some trees) so that I can see actual sunrises and sunsets as opposed to looking at them reflected in the windows of skyscrapers.
The reflections are beautiful and brilliant, but unlike in Plato’s cave, I want to see the real thing and not its shadow.
It happens in the spiritual realm first
If you wish to change something in your life, the first step is to desire this change.
Then you must be able to focus on such.
It’s where we focus our attention that matters. Where we focus our attention begins to—on the spiritual level—activate our desires.
Imagine what you want
In my mind’s eye, I can see the key to my new place.
I open the door and walk inside.
I imagine myself walking around, observing the rather large windows, the view. I can see that there’s a wooden floor, too.
Now I’ve furnished my new place and can see an off-white couch, an intricate, Persian rug, paintings of ancient sailing ships, and other artistic decorations.
I can also see my desk with a large computer station on it. This is from where I’ll communicate with you, my LRC clients, in the near future.
It doesn’t start today
I vaguely remember having had a vision of this place at an earlier stage in my life.
A big door. An opening. Something significant.
My point is that even if we are barely aware of our desires or that they’re latent, they are still there in seed form. This matches James Hillman’s acorn theory which posits that our lives are all about finding our acorn.
I’m convinced that the inception of our desires exists in our individualized acorns. It’s up to us to feed, water and allow these desires to grow. This is the core of what Take it to the Next Level is about.
The view from my new place is what I’ve always dreamed of. It’s beautiful, inspiring, yet not overwhelming because the trees are there, too, to balance the water scene.
I can see the sun start to rise and timidly peek above the water on the horizon. The sky is a pinkish-blue. It’s gorgeous and I’m right there, right where I’m supposed to be.
