She Grows with Allyson Scammell
Ep #11: Receiving Soul-Guided Visions for Growth Bigger Than Your Brain Perceives as Possible
[00:00:00] Good day and welcome to the show. I’m Allyson Scammell. And I’m going to be chatting about a critical topic today, both as it relates to me as a coach and to you as someone growing a business. And if you’re not growing a business, then I know you’re growing something. We’ll be exploring how to receive soul guided visions for growth that are bigger than your brain perceives to be possible. We’ll delve into how to receive or clarify your highest visions, release any resistance that is rejecting the vision and determine your focus for today to shift you into alignment to the vision. I’ll end the episode on a challenge that will have you seeing possibilities you never dreamed possible, so you’ll want to listen until the end.
[00:01:01] Welcome to She Grows, a podcast for soul guided women entrepreneurs ready to grow their income, impact and inspiration. Each week we’re going to explore how to align to the soul of your business and grow it from there. I’m your host, Allyson Scammell. Let’s get growing.
[00:01:26] Hey, there she grows nation.
[00:01:29] That is the name of this sisterhood of soul guided women entrepreneurs ready to grow in life and business, and she grows nation. Our heart is the CEO and we’re producing wealth inspired by our souls, yearnings and in service to the planet. Today’s topic is one of the most important topics I can discuss as a coach. The reason why is because it is based around my core gifts. When I describe my core gifts and words, I say that I am expanded bold ability. What that means is I have the ability to help others see visions of growth that are bigger and bolder than they perceived to be possible. Create the space for that vision to arrive and take inspired action to bring the vision to life. By the way, bold ability is a word I made up and it triggers my unique frequency, which is actually what my core gifts are. And if you want to learn more about your unique frequency, I recommend listening to my interview with Michael Trotta. Episode number four. So we’re squarely in my core gift wheelhouse today. And this topic is hugely important for you, whether you’re an entrepreneur or not, because your soul is wired for big growth. Therefore, if you’re not continually growing and pushing your edges, you’ll be left with that sinking feeling that you’re not reaching your full potential and you’re not making your fullest impact on the world. Few things feel worse. So let’s start with how to see or clarify the vision. And before we see it, we need to receive it. This process of visioning is an extremely powerful practice to quickly and easily accelerate anything you’re trying to grow.
[00:03:33] If you’ve been part of my community for a while, then I’ve probably taken you through my process for visioning at least a few times. But it’s a process worth repeating over and over again. So here’s how it works. First, you want to go out of your mind. So what I mean by that is you must get quiet. As we get more technologically plugged in. Getting quiet is going to be more and more challenging to do and more and more critical to do. So that’s why it is such an amazing and powerful and important practice for at least a couple minutes of the day. Maybe in the morning, if you can, to just spend some time being quiet away from your devices. Alone, if you can be. And how I and I many people get quiet is I focus on my breath, long, deep breaths in, long, deep breaths out. And if you take in three deep breaths, you will already be well on your way to getting out of your mind. Because if you are too plugged in to technology or too far up inside your thinking mind, you are cut off from your soul. You’re cut off from that heart frequency where the communication passes through from your higher self to your human’s self. That’s why you cannot really receive these big visions that I’m talking about. These soul guided, divinely inspired visions. If you are really up inside your thinking brain or you’re sitting in front of a computer or holding onto a handheld device.
[00:05:37] So this is such an amazing practice that can have so like endless number of benefits. But certainly when it comes to visioning, I I can’t see any other way to vision than to start by quieting your mind. The second step to take is to sink down and place all of your awareness on your heart space. Your heart space is your heart chakra. It’s the area at the center of your chest. It is the frequency where the communication passes through from your higher self. And one way to get to that space, to tune in to that heart frequency is to visualize that you have an elevator shaft in your body that starts at your root chakra and goes all the way up to your crown chakra. Most of us spend. A good part of our day in that area of your head. So let’s say the area around your head, around your third eye chakra is floor five, and that’s when we’re plugged into technology. And that’s when we’re in analyzing something, thinking about something. Our point of awareness is up inside of our head. So you want to imagine that the lobby level floor or the ground floor is your heart space and you’re taking your point of awareness, your point of consciousness from floor five, that area around your head, and then you’re gonna press floor one and pretend as if you are inside that elevator car, riding your awareness down to level one and you’re going to sink and place awareness on to that area of your heart space and you’re gonna become your heart space.
[00:07:39] And when you do that. Your thoughts instantly dissipate. And quiet and even stop. And you feel this heavy expansiveness, this connection. Sometimes you can feel a divine love. As you expand outward into this infinite heart frequency and this is the place you want to be in. When you call on your part or your soul or hire, sell for your intuition. To provide you with a divine vision of growth for your life or your business or your career. So you want to ask your heart for a soul guided vision for growth for at least a year into the future.
[00:08:33] And no more than 10. You want to give yourself enough space? For these large visions to come to life. And if you’re asking for a big vision in six months time, that doesn’t give you very much space to invite that vision in to your three dimensional reality. So that’s why it’s always important to go out at least a year and if not farther. Five years, 10 years. And then the last step is to receive. And in receiving you learn how your heart speaks to you and everyone’s heart speaks to them differently. Some people get visions. Some people get words. Some people get nudges, callings, perceptions. And a few things to notice about how hearts communicate is they normally will communicate in very few words. So if you’re visioning and you get an explanation to your vision, that’s very verbose. That is likely your brain filtering and calculating and analyzing what it thinks the vision should be. And if that happens, no worries. All you want to do is refocus on your breath, come down to that first level floor of your heart space and ask again what is a vision for growth?
[00:10:08] For my soul. For a year, five, 10 years time.
[00:10:15] And you repeat this over and over until the vision becomes so clear that you feel like it has already happened because it has what you’re doing with the visioning is actually creating it in the quantum field. Once you’ve done that with the vision, the next thing to do is to align to the vision so you can bring it in to your third dimensional reality so you can experience the vision, which is what we all want to do. And the biggest block to aligning to our visions gets me to the next point of this podcast, and that is resistance. I absolutely love Steven Press, Phil’s book, The War of Art. This is what he says about resistance. Resistance is experienced as fear. The degree of fear equates to the strength of resistance. Therefore, though, more fear we feel about a specific enterprise, the more certain we can be that that enterprise is important to us and to the growth of our soul. That’s why we feel so much resistance. If it meant nothing to us, there’d be no resistance. I love that so much. So wise from Steven Press Field. And if you haven’t read the book, The War of Art, I highly recommend it. Yes. Resistance is fear. And it’s triggered when your soul is calling you to step up and be a powerful light. You are born to be.
[00:12:03] Fear comes to us in the form of thoughts. So what are your thoughts telling you about your really big visions? If they are all supporting, then either you’ve already done a lot of work on releasing your fear or your vision isn’t nearly big enough or your visions are coming from your thinking mind, not your soul. Remember, soul guided visions are arriving from your higher self. And they’re coming from beyond the realms of what your brain deems possible. One of my biggest visions from my soul is to create a world renowned retreat center on the prairies of South Dakota that allows people to escape for six days and return with a clear picture of their souls. Highest vision for growth. Part of my vision is a herd of buffalo. Meaning I want to own a herd of buffalo and have enough land for them to roam. I first had this vision 10 years ago and 10 years ago. The resistance to it was massive. It was in the form of fear, triggering thoughts such as I could never have the money to do this. Who would want to come to the prairies? People want to go to Maui or the south of France. And my favorite. I am crazy to think this could work. Well, guess what? This year, 10 years later, after I first received the vision, I held my first retreat on the prairies. And we did do a buffalo meditation in the middle of a herd of buffalo. We were in a truck with the windows rolled down.
[00:14:01] They weren’t my buffalo. They were owned by a nearby buffalo farmer. But my vision for the next 10 years shows me owning my own buffalo herd. This is a pretty big proposition on a lot of levels. It’s not like owning cats, their buffalo. They’re enormous. Just like my vision. So for the past 10 years, I’ve been releasing the resistance to my original vision. And because I did that work and I released that resistance, I was able to experience it in my third dimension reality in a way that absolutely blew me away. And it also blew away the other women who participated in the retreat. The magic and awe we created was greater than anything I ever sensed or even saw in the vision. So now looking forward to my vision for the retreat in 10 years time. From today, I need to again check my resistance. Are my thoughts supporting this vision or blocking the vision and triggering fear? Another way to ask the question is does my vision have any buts? So that means I want to own a herd of buffalo, but they’re too expensive. I’ll never be able to get the land or afford the land. My family won’t be onboard. Buffalo are too expensive to feed. I don’t have the proper infrastructure. And best of all, I don’t know a damn thing about raising buffalo. Those are all real fear triggering thoughts. So my work right now is to dissolve each and every one. So that brings me to the next question.
[00:15:51] How do you dissolve a fear triggering thought? One of the primary tools I use to dissolve thoughts is emotional freedom techniques or EMT or tapping. If you’ve never worked with an EMT practitioner before, I highly recommend it. EMT practitioners can really hold the space for you to clear away the resistance in powerful ways because at the end of the day, resistance is actually more than negative thoughts. It’s blocked energy. And let me tell you what I mean by that through an example. I grew up on a family farm in the nineteen eighties. Family farms were going bankrupt. Everywhere you looked, the economic situation profoundly affected my parents. They constantly worried about money. They constantly worried about how they would save the farm. So what I took this to mean as a child was running a farm is hard. It’s expensive. The banks will take it away. Only wealthy people can survive. All thoughts that trigger a lot of fear. As a child, I feared the banks taking away our farm and I bottled that fear away and it took the form of blocked energy. Now, as an adult, I’m being called to do something that is very similar to running a farm. A position I never would dream that I would have been in raising Buffalo. Right. It will be for the purpose of the retreats I host. But the things that need to happen to keep Buffalo alive and thriving are the same as running a family farm.
[00:17:36] My soul is leading me to this blocked energy and inviting me to confront it, feel it, and release it. And when I release it, I can change my thoughts, too. I am meant to run a buffalo farm. It’s wealth producing. It’s mine to grow. It’s in service to the planet. This is what my soul is calling me to do. And with the energy block removed and shifted, I actually believe those thoughts to be true because they’re opposite no longer triggers fear. Isn’t that amazing? If you’re curious to learn more about T and how E.M.T. Can help you release blocks, I’ve included a how to video in the show notes. OK. Moving on to how to determine your focus for today to shift you in to alignment to your vision. The first thing you want to do is to forget the how? Absolutely. Forget asking the question how am I going to get there? And that’s the first place your brain is going to want to take you. And I love how my friend and brain coach Bambi Thompson describes it. She calls it the diabolical hell of how. Couldn’t say it better myself. When you focus on the how, your brain immediately starts calculating and analyzing what it thinks you should do. Not only that, it immediately puts you in lack mode because you’re in this sense of the fact that your vision is nowhere near you. So you’re scrambling, scrambling, calculating, thinking about how to get there. So instead of focusing on how am I going to manifest my vision? You want to focus on focus. What that means is you want to place your focus on the inspired action that needs to take place to day to shift you into alignment, to your vision.
[00:19:47] If your vision is very, very, very big, as I hope it is, and you’re thinking about five or 10 years into the future. Sometimes that can feel super far away and it can feel like it’s not even possible. So if instead you focus on what can I do today to take inspired action towards that vision, you start too little by little sense and feel the possibilities of your vision. And when you take consistent, inspired action over time, it leads to momentum. And that momentum puts you in that magical synchronicity that happens, that you just feel like you’re standing on a moving walkway and things are just magically appearing at a nowhere. or in strange and magical places that is supporting you and helping you. The universe is here. The divine non-physical consciousness is here to support you in your soul’s highest vision. And that support starts to show up. And all you have to do is keep checking in on the vision from time to time and asking what do I need to focus on today? What inspired action is calling my name in this moment to take to shift me into alignment to that vision, to bring that vision to life? And if you do that every day and working on the resistance and noticing your butts and your fear triggering thoughts. Those big visions, those visions beat on the realm of what your brain ever perceived to be possible. We’ll start getting closer to you. And they will start getting so close that you’ll actually begin to experiencing them. And there’s truly no greater reward in life than that.
[00:21:57] So. My challenge for you this week is to get quiet and ask your heart what is a bigger vision for growth beyond what I’m currently perceiving to be possible and wait for the answer to arrive and when it arrives or when you perceive it could arise?
[00:22:26] Shift to what’s one thing. One small, tiny step.
[00:22:33] Of inspired action I can take today to start to bring this vision to life.
