Episode 134 – Future Thinking: A guided visualisation

Over the next couple of episodes, Lucinda and Mariëlle will be diving into the topic of Future Thinking and how it can benefit our creative lives. During this episode, Mariëlle guides Lucinda and their listeners into a guided visualisation that invites one to connect with their future creative selves.

Here’s what came up during the episode:

  • Mariëlle explains why she decided to create a guided visualisation for the episode
  • After the guided visualisation, Lucinda shares her experience of it and what came up for her
  • Mariëlle reminds everyone – including herself – that it’s not about getting exactly where you are in your future vision; it’s about what having that future vision in front of you drives you to do in the here and now.
