Wisdom From Your Future Self

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, and welcome to your Daily Mindfulness. So today I'm going to invite you to do a little visualization that will help you bring forth wisdom that you can use in your daily life. So if you care to, you might like to close the eyes for this visualization. And imagine that you're 90 years old and it's your birthday. So there's a birthday celebration that's being held in your honor.

And it doesn't matter how you visualize this. Some people visualize in images or you might feel your way through this, or hear sounds or abstract ideas, that's fine. Just doing these however you want to do it. And so here you are at this birthday celebration. Everybody's here to honor you, your friends and family and work colleagues.

And just imagine that a person that you really care about gets up to do a short speech about you, about the person that you've been about the life that you've lived, about what you've meant to them, about what you've stood for in your life. So just of hearing that speech now. And imagining that this person says and means whatever it is you'd most like to hear them say and mean, and just noticing how it feels when you hear these words. And now you can either continue listening to this first person, or you can imagine that another person who you really care about, imagine that person getting up to make a short speech about you, about the person that you are, the life that you've lived, what you've meant to them, what you've stood for. Just noticing what they're saying about you.

And imagine that they're saying and meaning whatever it is that you really most want them to say and mean. And again, noticing how it feels in your body as you hear these words. And now just taking a moment just to reflect on what you've heard them say, and to consider what does this tell you about your values, about what really matters to you, about what you care about really deep in your heart. And as you open your eyes now, if that feels okay for you, if you're ready to, just perhaps making an intention to let this wisdom from your future self be carried forward with you today as a remembrance of what truly matters deep in your heart. As always thank you for your practice and your presence here with us, and inviting you to now settle in for today's meditation.
