We are all on our own vision quest. We have an idea in our minds of who we are and who we want to be in x amount of time. Our thoughts change over the years from finishing high school through the early 20s, late 20’s and beyond. For me here at the medium sized age of 31 I’m seeing new parts of myself that must be explored, I’ve also given up on whole lot of useless aspects that no longer make sense or that i can’t, quite frankly, be bothered by anymore.
Friendships have come and gone or morphed into something new. I’ve learned some solid lessons about life, experienced intense heartache and withdrawn from many opportunities out of fear. I know all about that stuff. But so too has life pulled me towards exactly what I needed and desired without any apparent decision making on my part…
Via my up & down experiences I have created a new sense of who I am. And within that is a new concept of who it is I’m striving to become.
I’m on a mission. A vision quest of self-creation.
And for me this means fulfilling all aspects of my potential including, in no specific order ~ maintaining a healthy diet and exercise, meditation and spiritual fulfilment, relationships with significant others, friends and family, reaching new levels of job related satisfaction involving healing, helping and giving love to others and, being as creative as I am able to through my fave artistic mediums, not to mention ensuring time for fun, recreation and new experiences.
I’m on a vision quest to be and do everything I truly want.
So I must be clear about what my vision is, and begin to fill the spaces in between with loving steps that get me closer to where I’m intending to go. Without frustration or fear that I’m not able to fulfil the mission, never giving up hope in the possibility of an exciting unfolding.
Iolite is the stone of ‘vision’. A stunning dark or purple-y to violet blue stone that resembles sapphire. Like most stones it can be not only worn, carried or used in healings, but I like to place it on my third eye during meditation to be more stimulated by the energy. I feel the pull of iolite when it’s time for a deeper vision for the future. When I must go within on a personal journey towards better understanding and perspective. New ideas are born with the energy of iolite, perceptions shift with an honest depth.
My Vision Quest is calling me. My future self is calling me. And with the help and support of iolite and some time spent alone, the way can be be shown to me through opening my third eye (also known as ‘inner sight’). Bring it on!
