How Do I Prepare For My Future?



There are times when those of us on this earth journey face health challenges that go beyond what seems humanly possible to endure, and yet we do, somehow, manage, on varying levels. What is it that makes this possible? Where do we find the strength?

There come moments in those journeys where people look out into their own future and ask,

“What’s next for me?

This question becomes especially significant when a line up of medical issues have been identified by doctors and health professionals sharing test results which suggest a demanding physical or emotional road ahead.

I am blessed to have been a conduit for this loving message to a courageous young woman this past month who reached out to me through ‘Ask Spirit’ to ask,

“How can I prepare for my future?”

With her loving permission, I am posting Spirits response to her today and dedicating it to my cousin Blue. I know Blue to already embody the qualities here. His positive nature, inner strength and expansive visioning for good health have been extraordinary to witness and yet I know, too, in this moment, the question in his heart includes those mentioned above.

This one’s for you, Blue.
I’m with you!

I can honestly say
     That our future can look most bleak
          If this is the view
               We choose to focus upon

     What is it that we wish for?

I would like to say
     That we must always hope for the best
          No matter what statistics say

This focus on numbers of survivors
     Does nothing to take into account
          An individual soul
               With determination

You are that determined one

                          Are you not?

Why not believe the future holds the best of times
     And not the worst?

          What is stopping you from listening
               To your own dear heart?

                    Always focus on the positive

                          Live that way

Allow yourself to believe
     That all will work out well

Are there challenges ahead?

We would be foolish to deny that

And yet,
     If we focus on death as the outcome

Aren’t we inviting that in?

Focus on life as the outcome

Live life to its fullest
     Each moment that it presents itself to you
          And know,
               That the death you envision
                    Is simply
                         A transition into something
                              More beautiful than all imagining

We all move toward death
     We who choose this earth journey
          It’s a package deal

     Wouldn’t it make sense to prepare for the future
          By envisioning
               Joyful living?

I’d count on that
     For you,
          If I were you,
               And I am

I would say to myself,

I’d say,


It’s time to prepare for joyful love-filled, powerful healing in my future.”

           And aim for that with laughter in your voice

Ask for that
     Aim for that
          Seek it
               Breathe it
                    Feel it deeply
                         As your own heartfelt truth

And we on this side
     Will support your every effort
          To fulfill that dream

Open your heart

And let love in

Allow every minute of your future
     To be lived at the top of the mountain

Even the tough days
     Because there will be some
          – you know it
     Even then,
          Remember to dream big
               Because God wants that for you
                    Just as much as you do

I’ve heard your heart in sorrow and fear

Now let me hear it
     Joyfully sing

Because at this point
     All possibilities for a happy future
          Are within your grasp

Amen to your courageous heart
     You’re like your Mother
          Make that your truth
               To the Highest Good of All

           Many blessings

                     Are waiting to be bestowed upon you

      Let them in

                     Let them in
