One MAJOR form of self-sabotage that’s also self-medication is spending a lot of time in fantasy – something I know a lot about. Not only was this an issue for me, it’s been an issue for many folks in my classes.
People don’t talk about the addictive compulsive nature of fantasy so much because they feel embarrassed about it.
I thought I’d share about the differences between vision and fantasy. There’s a profound difference between vision and fantasy. I love A Course in Miracles teachings because they are so helpful. One thing they make clear is that the hero in the fantasy is always the body. If, in your fantasy of having a fabulous career you envision yourself as a body receiving praise, money, adoration, etc. then you can be sure that’s a fantasy.
Think about it: We’re living in an illusion, fantasizing about a better illusion. What????
In my experience, a vision of sharing my gifts and talents is more focused on how I feel and not at all on what it LOOKS like. In the vision of my success I feel in the flow of Love. I’m sharing. It’s not about me getting. I’m receiving divine guidance and inspiration and I’m flowing that out into the world through sharing.
Understanding the difference between vision and fantasy, is very valuable.
One is a valuable tool and the other is a form of self-medication. Vision is a very different energetic than fantasy. Fantasy is a drug for the ego. Vision is a beautiful divine insight.
Fantasy leaves us in a hangover of lack. Vision lifts us up into communion with Spirit and a willingness to receive insight and clarity. What do you prefer? Expansion or addiction? Fantasy is often an addiction.
And the good news is this is a habit that can be broken – when we give it to Spirit. And when we forgive ourselves for whatever judgments we’ve been holding against ourselves for escaping into fantasy.
If you feel like you’re addicted to fantasy and you’re ready to break that habit so you can enjoy the life you’re actually living, and tap into the DIVINE VISION for your life, then consider joining us this weekend.
Let’s open our minds to what is truly possible – the very HIGHEST spiritual vision. When you align with that vision so much good can come to you!
