Written by Rich Lewis, a contemporary author and trainer on centering prayer.

Who is your future self?

I find this person in my centering prayer sits.

How do I find this person?

During my silent sits, I let go and open to the presence and actions of God within.

I trust God.

I let God pray in me.

What does God pray in me?

God prays in me my future actions: my future self.

I then get up and go.

I trust my inner nudges.

I journal these nudges and turn them into affirmations and goals.

How do I know these inner nudges are from God?

If I have an inner peace and excitement about them, I trust they are from God.

If they do not harm me and others, I trust they are from God.

If they move me out of my comfort zone, I trust they are from God.

Gods wants me to learn, explore and do new things.

I recite these inner nudges to God before each centering prayer sit.

I let them brew with God while I sit.

I partner with God on my future self.

Who is your future self?
