Are you afraid of what might happen in the future or do you mainly live in the past? Do you think you have a fate and ponder what it could be? Anyone can evade their fate; provided you take the right steps. This article shows how you can do that and how you can walk the road to your destiny.

The future is what happens later, but destiny happens at any time and we can always open ourselves to that.

The difference between fate, destiny, and the future

Destiny is saying yes to the calling with which we are born.

Our destiny is not the same as our future: the future is what happens later, but destiny happens in every moment and we can always open ourselves to that. Destiny is saying ‘yes’ to the calling we were born with, while destiny is what happens when we fight against or ignore our calling.

This is a very old idea that runs counter to modern psychology and biology, which define our destiny according to our psychological and biological profile. But the more we identify with what our parents did or didn’t do, with what is programmed into our chromosomes, or with what we wear and possess, the more our story belongs to our ancestors and others.

We downplay our life by explaining it with a list of causes that we can do nothing about. Of course, everyone has a future – that is the function of the passage of time – but only certain people have a destiny because they use the available tools to realize it. Plato thought, that since our destiny in life is already fixed when we are born, that can only be changed by the intervention of the gods. But I (Alberto Villoldo) believe that fate can turn into destiny if we can discover the hidden meaning of our lives… which we can do through the meditation journeys.

The character choice of the soul

We all choose a character and a calling before we are born – they are anchored in our being and cannot be explained by psychological theories. Sometimes we see those qualities better in our children than in ourselves; we wonder where that stubbornness, determination, or absent-mindedness comes from. Yes, we welcome special athletic skills or musical talent, but we fear other character traits such as excessive mobility and curiosity, which make it difficult to sit still in class.

In our society, where everything is solved by medication, many of these children are given Ritalin, Prozac or some other drug that would have paralyzed the creativity of many geniuses of the past. We have to ask ourselves: are these really all medical conditions or could they also be expressions of a unique calling? ADHD, for example, can come in handy if you live in the jungle or in the desert and have to do everything at once – then you can listen for lions while you cook and watch the kids.

All the pain of the past

We live through those experiences again and again, without changing the consequences of them.

If we live in the future and look forward to the day when things will get better, we are bound by time, which, as Shakespeare said, ” crawls from day to day .” But living in the future is no different from living in the past: in both cases we are in the grip of fate, constantly reliving the pain we have had or longing for something or someone different than we have now. We live through those experiences again and again, without changing the consequences of them.

We can break this cycle with soul retrieval and heal our past, but we haven’t created a destiny yet. We may have liberated ourselves from fate but still be far from our calling, or we may have stepped out of a bad relationship but have not yet found our true life partner. In other words, healing our past simply means not rehashing our old wounds.

Projection

He projected his shadow onto them in an attempt to heal himself.

Healing old wounds is no small feat, but if we continue to carry them with us, our future will be colored by their pain and fear. In psychology, this mechanism is called projection and it is one of the dangers of the therapeutic process. A psychologist whose wounds have not healed may project his own problems onto his patient.

For example, a therapist who was involved in a very painful conflict with his brother about an inheritance complained: ‘ Alberto, all my clients argue about money. ‘ That sounded strange to me because my clients have all kinds of problems. It was clear that this man unknowingly attracted patients who had the same problems as him and that he projected his shadow onto them in an attempt to heal himself.

Repetitions from the past

If we don’t heal, we will create new versions of the same wife, job, and opportunity throughout our lives.

Likewise, we project our unhealed wounds onto others—especially when we embark on a destiny journey while not yet healed. We reinfect ourselves and our destiny by projecting our wounds onto our future, rather than seeing life as an unfolding series of new experiences. If we don’t heal, we’ll be creating new versions of the same wife, job, and opportunity throughout our lives—then we’re going to
reduce twenty years of life experience to one year repeated twenty times.

Traveling to your destiny

If we follow our destiny, we can germinate the acorn within us.

We simply cannot leap forward without healing our foundation. You may now be thinking, “I don’t want to dive into my past at all. What’s done is done. Let’s forget about that soul retrieval and just do that destiny.’ But that soul retrieval journey is essential preparation because with it we transplant the acorn of our potential from rocky ground to fertile ground. If we follow our destiny, we can germinate the acorn within us. We heal the past in order to travel to the Overworld, free from the traumas that have kept us from reaching our potential and without danger of infecting our future.
