By definition, vision means we have been given the power to see what we will or may become a reality. It is called vision. We can use our vision to see victory. We can use our vision to see the results of activating our faith. We can use our vision to create if statements that have meaning and purpose. We can use our vision to dream about the possibilities of a brighter tomorrow. It should probably scare, and then excite us when we realize we really can see the future. It does not matter how far away we believe we are from the future we want. We can see our ultimate destination: success.

One of the greatest gifts given to man is our ability to imagine, and use what we “see” to create a vision. To be clear, I need to establish a clear distinction between the vision of the eyes (natural), and the vision of the mind (spiritual). These are two totally different things that can disrupt the process of success if they are not separated. Remember this fact: we cannot trust the natural vision we have from our eyes. It is created for us. On the other hand, we can trust the spiritual vision we have from our mind. It is created by us, a gift given to us from our Creator.

Wait what… we cannot trust what we see? This is 100% correct. For all the non-believers, I need to have you complete a short exercise. Use your natural vision (or imagination) to look (quickly) in the direction of the sun. How big does it appear to be? Now look up the real dimensions of the sun. The object you saw and thought you knew based on your natural vision is actually a lot larger than it appears to be. Your natural vision let you down in terms of identifying the true size of the sun. If it can let you down here, believe that it can, and does, let you down all the time.

Instead, we need to focus on the spiritual vision we create in our minds. This is the ability to create through our imagination anything we can conceive. It is a scary thought that we have the ability to put ourselves in any situation and visualize it over and over again. Yet this universal skill is right there for the taking. In fact, we use our spiritual vision all the time without even realizing it. Today, you visualized yourself doing something in your mind that was totally different than what you were actually doing. You might have seen something from yesterday. You might have seen an event in the future. Either way, you used your spiritual vision to see something that is not actually happening in the present moment…

 

Affirmation: My gift of spiritual vision will work to attract the resources readily available to achieve the ultimate victory I will attain.
