Stay Present – Created by the Future

CreatedByTheFutureOne of the spiritual concepts that sometimes gets my mind all twisted up is that the future creates the present! For many years it seemed to me that our pasts were what determined the present. But not so!

Our pasts influence and flavor our present. This happens all the time, especially when we are not being conscious. Beliefs, behaviors, habits, preferences, etc., all influence how we experience the present.

But it is the future that creates the present moment. Of course we align ourselves with probable futures by allowing our imagination to feed images and ideas to them. (oftentimes based on past experiences!). Like I said, it can all get a little convoluted or confusing.

But here is my current example.

I decided to start teaching again. This time the focus is on the principles of ‘Intentional Living’. At Storm Wisdom we live and breathe these principles everyday. However, just recently I have been inspired to share these concepts and philosophies. To create conversation and dialog around them so that we might take them a little deeper.

I had not said anything to anyone about where we will begin.., but I’ve known I wanted to start with the principle of ‘Owning Your Authority’. There are several reasons this particular starting point feels right. But I didn’t feel the need to predefined this. The conversation will go where it wants to go… I trust that.

However, what is coming up for me is that by simply choosing that as a starting point, I am now being inundated by experiences around what it means to own my own authority. The actual series kicks off in about two weeks. Yet, I am living it now. Simply because I am connected to that future. One that was only a possibility a month ago.

Now that it is a probability.., I am attracting things into the present that will influence, inspire or deepen this experience. The future creating the present.

intentionallivingHave you ever had that experience? You know.., you sign up for a workshop or class that is a month or two away. It is a topic you are interested in… and you begin to look forward to the event. THEN when you get there, it feels like they have been watching your life. Everything that is being discussed is what is current in your life. You have been doing the “pre-work” for the workshop without even knowing it.

It started the day you signed up for or committed to the workshop!

There are people who have already signed-up or registered for the first in the series on Intentional Living! I can’t wait to see how many of them have current examples of how “owing their authority” is showing up in their life. Even if they don’t (or didn’t!) know that would be our first area of conversation! I bet many of them are having their own experiences, because they are choosing a probable future where owning their Authority plays a part.

All of this is to say… this week I have been aware of the principle of ‘Staying Present’. AND at the same time, how everything is created by the future.

With Light, Love, and Laughter


  1. Somehow, it is really enlightening to hear from you in this way. In this post, it feels like you allowed me into the future of you. And therefore..maybe..also..of me.

    Prior to this post, I only really saw you as the owner of a relatively small, local metaphysical outpost. A little more sophisticated than the ones offering rainbows and unicorns, incense and tie-dyed stuff. And maybe that was just my own inability to see the more that was there. Like many of us, I’m myopic. Sigh~

    So, thank you Charles. You’ve inspired me.

    You’re inspiring!


    • Wow Jivana.., Thanks. I think! 🤓 I don’t mind being the steward of an outpost… especially if it sits at the edge of the known. A boundary dwellers outpost that allows those map makers who are destined to explore the abyss a place to launch from and return to when they need to recharge. But then again, that might be my myopic vision! So I am in good company. Thank you for the kind words! I am glad you’re here with me!

  2. Good Morning Charles~

    I love it! You’re basically manifesting from expectations! I was just reading a Kryon channeling last night, and he covered this! He also said that we’ve never been able to do this more quickly or easier than at this time, right now. Which is why we must be careful about our expectations. Happy Creating!

    Have a *sparkly* day!…………………Marj

    p.s. – I still wish you would open Storm Wisdom II down here in the S/E valley! (Just sayin’)!

    • Thanks Marj for sharing the synchronicity! Love when everything aligns! And who knows.., let’s feed the future where Storm Wisdom is right in your hood!

  3. Is life not grand, and getting even more so. Things are happening quicker and our visions/intentions are being made manifest with less effort, especially when we add the component of emotion behind them. Yes, the next challenge is going to be how to uncreate what we create when we accidently allow negative thoughts to play in our mind and influence our creations. I think this is what is called 4th dimensional work, for in the purity of the 5th dimension negativity is not allowed/a part of that reality. Wowza!

    • You always add another layer of depth and perspective to these musing Joseph. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I was surprised to read that you decided to start teaching again. My question is, when were you not teaching? I have consistently learned so much from, been inspired, and challenged to grow and expand, by you. What a gift you are to this community, I guess I have taken you a little for granted! Thank you, Charles!

    • Ahh… Thank you so much for saying that Vikki! You’re support and encouragement means the world to me!

  5. Dear Charles, to add some clarity, which I forgot to include, in the purity of the 5th dimension fear, judgment, doubt, negativity, guilt, shame, limitation, blame, etc. do not and cannot exist. If they did can you imagine what we as creators would be accidently/potentially creating. So for us to truly be fully embodied in the 5th dimension we must be clear of those old patterns/traits/limiting beliefs. Presently many light-workers talk about being in the 5th dimension, which does and has always existed around us, but few actually reside there full time. I’d bet it would be hard to find a little more than 100 individuals ON Earth (I’m not counting inner earth beings who are already at that level or higher) at this time that are what could be called 5th dimensional beings. I’m looking forward to getting there and experiencing the endless love, peace and joy of being the god/creator I’ve been hearing about for so long and know is attainable.
