🖇️  Visit different "departments" which could represent different areas of your life - home, what country you’d like to live in, or visit, work and business, hobbies, relationships.

What possibilities call to you?


🥹 This is a great opportunity to notice any resistance or limiting beliefs that arise around dreams you want but don't think you "can" have

Notice what’s there that you could have, but choose not to. For instance,countries, or states, or counties that you could live in, but choose not to. Or what relationships, or pastimes are there, but you choose to pass them by.

What are you choosing to have less of?


🏖️  How good are you at visualisation? Even if you feel you're "not good at it" - we can all visualise and Gerri helps you to learn how to visualise (having failed to do so for the first 30 years of her life).


🥇  Observing without attachment - you don't have to take everything you see back to today, what’s there that you’ll leave there, and what would you love NOW?

When you recognise these desires you didn't know you had, can help to expand your vision

🎉 Enjoy gently playing with potential futures from a space of openness, curiosity and FUN!


😇 Learn to allow your future, highest self to reveal the dreams that you've kept hidden


🥳 This uplifting episode will open your mind and heart to hopes and wishes you didn't even know were there. Visualising your Future Store plants seeds - who knows what may bloom!
