Scanning the Future
by Owen Waters
One of the great advantages of regular meditation is that it
enhances your sense of intuition. The more you practice
meditation, the more you gain insight into every aspect of your
life. Insights can relate to present or past events, leading to
a greater understanding of your life's path, or they can relate
to future events.
Insights into future events can be challenging in four ways:
1. The future is not fixed. Until you experience it, the
future remains as an array of possibilities with a "most
likely" scenario based on what holds the greatest energy.
2. Viewing the future can change the outcome. Even a 100%
accurate view of the most likely scenario will trigger
questions about whether you want that scenario to manifest, and
that change can influence the outcome. This can give the
illusion of inaccuracy in the original prediction.
3. Inner impressions come into your awareness through your
imagination. However, a fertile imagination can create images
on its own, almost for pure entertainment. True impressions of
a future event arrive while you are in a meditative state, or
sometimes while performing a monotonous task such as driving at
a constant speed. They don't fire up with the great energy of a
dramatic imagination. They slip in quietly and have to be
examined and unraveled to see what each impression contains.
4. When you first start scanning the future, your predictions
will be less accurate than they will become later, after
Sometimes, lack of self-esteem can be a barrier to the
development of your innate abilities. In that case you need to
be aware that everyone is everything that Infinite Being is.
The universe is holographic by design, meaning that while the
many make up the One, the One is also mirrored within each of
the many. So, each person, each spark of Infinite Being,
contains all of the qualities of Infinite Being.
Lack of self-esteem, therefore, is only a personality trait
and not reflective of your true self.
You have a perfect sense of intuition or insight, just waiting
to be developed. One of the hallmarks of the global Shift to
higher consciousness is that, with each passing year, more and
more people will develop more and more of their inner
While you are practicing your intuitive skills, it is a good
idea to make written notes for later reference. Insights arrive
in your consciousness while you are in an altered, meditative
state, so their memory dissipates quickly just like the memory
of your dreams. If you keep notes, then re-read them weeks or
months later, you will be amazed at how accurate many of these
Sometimes, you will also see how insights into less than
desirable scenarios caused you to make a decision to steer your
life in a different direction. When faced with decisions about
which direction to turn, the best barometer is always your
highest joy. Ask yourself:
"What scenario would represent my highest joy?"
