The Wonderful Evolved Future You (Remix)

[This entry is a re-post]


Imagine the person you would most like to be, the version of you that is living the life you always imagined. This person has somehow found the solution to all the challenges you face right now. You don’t know how, but you can tell that she has her shit together at long last. She is not perfect because she is still growing and learning but she is what you ache to be.

Can you see a picture of this wonderful evolved future you?


What does she look like? What clothes is she wearing? What colour and style is her hair? How does she stand and walk? How does she speak? How often does she smile? Make the physical image colourful and bright and see the beauty, love and light in her eyes.


How does the wonderful evolved future you connect with your partner and children? How is she at work? What does she do after a bad day? What are her sources of rest and renewal?


How does the wonderful evolved future you think about her life? Is she filled with positive optimism for the future? Is she grateful for the past struggles that have made her strong? Does she think kind and loving thoughts towards herself? Does she take great care of herself?


How does the wonderful evolved future you behave around food? Does she eat fresh, healthy food in appropriate amounts? Does she move her body in ways that fill her with energy and vitality? Does she indulge in treats occasionally? Does she forget about food unless she is hungry? Does she get enough sleep? Does she take great care of herself?

Now Put Her to Work

Once you have a brilliant, clear, detailed description of the wonderful evolved future you it is time to put her to work.

Every time you are faced with a behavioural choice ~ what to eat, how to train, believing negative thoughts ~ ask yourself “What would the wonderful evolved me do?” Vividly imagine her in the situation you are now in and take note of what she would do.

It will change your life

Once you have vividly imagined what your wonderful evolved self would do in the situation, you don’t actually have to do it. I know that wonderfully evolved Katie wouldn’t comfort eat because she is sad but I can still choose that option because it is not about the actions, it is about the thought.

The reason this practice will change your life is because you are repeatedly picturing  the person you want to be every single day not because you are using your willpower to change your behaviour. Every time that wonderful evolved you image is played in your conscious mind, your subconscious mind is finding ways to make that image become a reality. You are re-programming your subconscious mind so that it gets easier and easier to think, feel and act like that future you.

Get Yourself a WEK

Instead of a mad monkey, an inner gollum, or a binge barbie, get yourself a WEK (wonderful evolved Kristy) or a WES (wonderful evolved Shelley) or a WEL (wonderful evolved Liz) or a WEE (wonderful evolved Emma) or a WEM (wonderful evolved Magda) or a WEX (wonderful evolved X). Know what she looks like, thinks and behaves and then consult her frequently.

I guarantee this one practice will greatly reduce, if not completely eliminate, your weight struggle.

thoughts become things

Did you know …

  • If our thoughts and feelings focus on the negative we create negative results. If they focus on the positive we create the possibility for the change and expansion which accompany our new image. Self-imaging is a process designed by your mind, fueled by your emotions, integrated into your body and inspired by your faith. It has been called creative visualization and creating with deliberate intent. ~ Cathryn Taylor

  1. I’d forgotten this post.

    What a beautiful, brilliant reminder.

    Thank you.

    Now, you go and have yourself a fabulous holiday wonderfully evolved Katie. xxx

    1. We’re here (after not being able to land on Hamilton Island because of bad weather and being diverted to Proserpine.) Duckfish is wearing shorts.

  2. I loved this the first time but like Shelly Im pleased for the reminder.

    WES is a work in progress, but I know who she is, what she feels like, what she looks like and what she does and I cant wait to be fully evolved 🙂 although we are always evolving right? WOW she can just keep getting better!

  3. Perhaps it should be the wonderful evolvING future Katie/Shar because we are always getting better and better.
