You know how they say your life flashes before your eyes when you die or have a near death experience? It’s like you get to see all the impactful moments of your life in rapid succession. Moments you didn’t realize were important at the time but which, at the end of your life, you realize made you the person you became.
I was sitting in my car the other day taking a break from running errands, and I started wondering if there was a way to see it all now while I’m still alive and kicking.
I closed my eyes, got into a meditative state with some nice music in the background, and I said to my guides, “Show me the moments that made me. Show me who I was and who I am.”
I started seeing my life flash before my eyes in quick snippets of activities and experiences.
Some moments were sad, challenging, difficult, and scary. Some were moments of victory, excitement, and joy. Some were times I solved a problem or had a huge shift in my way of thinking.
I started to really remember the child that I was, her experiences, her challenges, her goals and dreams. I asked myself if the life I was living today was honoring the dreams she dreamed in my youth.
She wanted to be a teacher. She wanted to help people who were suffering. She wanted to be a beacon of light for those lost in the dark. In my own way, in ways I never could have predicted, I became what my child-self wanted me to be.
I also saw the times I strayed off my path and went against my intuition, or the times I was duped by others. I saw the times I stayed too long, gave too much, and held on to something that wasn’t ever really there.
I saw myself letting go of things I thought I wanted and embracing change even when it was hard.
By the time my “life review” was done, I felt really in touch with my inner being and my higher self. I saw how all the threads I wove grew into a tapestry of this current life, and I liked what I saw. I like who I am and what I’ve become.
Don’t wait for death to let your life flash before you. Tune in to the moments that made you who you are today. Connect them together and take a step back to look at the tapestry you’ve woven. What do you see? Are you honoring your higher self? Are you living the life you wanted to live? If not, you have time to change your course.
