A VISION IS A GIFT FROM YOUR FUTURE
YOU ARE YOUR VISION AND YOUR VISION IS YOU… WHO ARE YOU? YOU ARE YOUR VISION…
There are many different process for Vision Quest. These include all traditional cultures and many Eastern Arts. The process you will be undertaking in this 14 day VIP vision quest is a process I have created using the best of the best from hundreds of Vision Quests I have undertaken myself with teachers and guides and guided others through, all over the world.
Each evening for the next 14 days please do this exercise of vision. Instructions are in audio format below and can be made portable using the free soundcloud app you can download to your phone. You will need to use the links on this page to find these audio as they are not public. The links take you to the recordings.
Since time immemorial, people have gone to the wilderness to seek guidance and renewal, to let their old lives and old selves die, to find the conditions where spirit may be rekindled, reborn within them. You are doing this vision quest because you are wanting to move forward on your path: looking to expand your life, in order to manifest your vision. You want to be ambitious and yet enjoy your life. A vision quest is your secret knowledge. You don’t openly share the result but you do walk the path once you know it. That walking is done with conviction and peaceful, mindful consciousness. Walk don’t run toward your vision.
There are three audio below. Start with the one on the left. The centre audio (vision meditation) is a guided visualisation that helps to create a connection with your visionary self. The third one, on the right, is Vision Meditation #2 is a guided meditation to your personal subconscious. You can use all three (one per night) to find what works.
The key is to do this 30 minute vision practice every night for 14 days. Please try to do it every night. And I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the instructions contained in the Instruction audio (on the left).
Most importantly relax, be alone, be safe, be warm, be free of interruptions and set a soft alarm in case you fall asleep. We don’t want you out there all night … (hahaha)
During the Vision Quest solo period each day, you will enter sacred time and space, sitting by yourself in the wildness, garden of nature. In the weakness of fasting [or eating lightly], you become more open and transparent. You live between the inner world of dreams, feelings, fantasies and the outer world of cold night air, the warming sun, the sound of a dogs howling, the sight of a lizard doing pushups, the vast view of a simple tree and this is where you can travel by looking upward. Upward is where the universe shines on you, so you can even lie down on the grass or sit in a lazy chair so your head is at 45degrees to the earth and your eyes are vertical up to the sky.
VISION QUEST MEDITATION #1
You may be visited by dragons, whose names are loneliness, boredom, fear, and regret, among others. You engage them with your heart and spirit, recognising them as worthwhile opponents. They push you into your depths.Time can slow down in your Vision Quest, so, it’s essential to have a very quiet alarm to signal the end of your 30 minute session. The stillness of the night can be very powerful. As your thoughts begin to empty out, you can look into the pool of your own being, noticing how you are, what your dreams are made of, what you need to let go of. The sacred dimension is present there, and you can enter it naturally. It is possible to feel connected to everything, to the small fly buzzing, to the flower, the cat in its special home, to the moon and stars wheeling overhead at night. Accept all the noises, cars and people and whatever. They are part of nature too. They remind you and they are you.
Vision Quest Meditation #2
Being alone at night in nature, you affirm an unbreakable bond between your human nature and natural world. The time spent alone in nature, whether it be down the back of your garden or in a nearby park or beach (please don’t drive to your chosen place and especially if you are female, choose a place where you know you can relax free from harm). You can even do a vision walk – instead of sitting still (please ask about this option as it is rarely as beneficial for the beginner)
This daily practice needs to be your ME time. It is a time when you must leave family, friends and work behind and go off alone, looking within to discover your changes and visions in the circle of life. The Chris Walker VIP Vision Quest is the name of this journey. People in any life stage or transition will find meaning in this powerful process.
“You own it. It’s simple. It’s portable and it’s inside of you. It affects your productivity, your health, your happiness. It affects your relationship, your friendships, your children and your P&L at work. If you tap it, there’s no stopping you, if you don’t then it’s all just hard work and struggle. Your Vision, Inspiration and Purpose (VIP) affects everything important and it is without doubt the single most important ingredient in determining the quality of your life, work life balance and the essential exchange in relationships. It’s not fluff, just try being without hope for a day and see how it feels and how many people want to invest in you. Nature thinking is simple. It’s Nature’s Laws presented so you can bring nature home and be in complete control of your dialogue with life.”
