Everything you want is coming. Relax and let the universe pick up the timing and the way. You just need to trust that what you want is coming, and watch how fast it comes.
- Abraham Hick
Like I said before, our beliefs, our thoughts, our speech and the actions we do to reinforce them, create our current reality. Don’t believe me? I suggest you take time out to reflect on where you are today. Isn’t everything around you once a seed of a dream? A brilliant idea? Amazed yet? Okay, here’s a personal example.
When I was in my teens, my mum started us on making an annual list of ten New Year goals. But instead of resolutions, aka things we wanted to change such as eat less sugar or study more, we had to put down a list of what we wanted to achieve the next year. Like all grumpy, hormonal teens I dragged my feet and whinged about doing this thing. Truth be told, it felt like a real chore to do. What’s awesome about this is that even though I didn't reach every goal, I managed every year to achieve more and more of the list, because I became more committed to the process every time. The goals morphed from making more friends and getting the books I listed (yes, I was a book nerd), to getting my desired HSC mark and getting into the university course I wanted after high school. Thanks, mum!
The act of consciously sitting down and thinking up every single desire I wanted to make true, then writing it down on paper, is the first step in my creating the new reality. It is a silent declaration to myself. This is my promise and I will work to make it happen. So even though I hardly open the notebook I wrote the goals in for the next 12 months, I knew in the back of my mind what they were, what they felt like, what they looked like and somehow my focus honed in on the actions that shaped the outcome, even though at times I didn’t know how it would turn out.
I’ll offer you another example. I was in my late 20s, seriously single after being in a relationship for five years and staring down the 30 year milestone with a bit of dread. I was considering throwing in the towel and resign myself to being a singleton. Instead I gave myself two years or so to really enjoy being single, not have to check-in on anyone if I wanted to stay out late partying, go on last minute trips and splurge on frivolous stuff like pretty shoes. After I had enough of being single, I decided I was ready. I made a list of qualities of the perfect man, for me. I wrote things on that list such as, he had to be kind, he had to respect my parents, I had to like his parents, he had to have the same values as me, etc….on top of love and all that. I made two copies, ceremonially burned one to ashes on a beach and scattered the ashes in the water, then I promptly forgot about it. Until eight months later, I fell for the bloke who ticked all the boxes, in the most unexpected of places. I ended up marrying him and he ended up fathering the girl-kid. Not in that order, but you get my drift.
Um yeah, the second copy is still knocking about somewhere in a knick-knack box. The point of the story is this, I visualised in my mind my ideal partner. I put out my desire to meet this special someone to the universe, then I placed my trust in serendipity that it will all turn out well in the end. And it did!
So how do you consciously start creating?
- Make a list of your desires. Be clear-cut in describing what you want. Give as much detail as you like.
- Project the feeling of what it would be like to achieve that desire. Are you elated? Feel the excitement in the air?
- Visualise the outcome. What does achieving your desire look like? Having cocktails in some exotic location? Or people shaking your hand to congratulate you?
- Start it, by making the first step. If it’s a bestseller book, draft out the plot, write the first page. If it’s a new career, spruce up your CV. Once you’ve started, just let the momentum take you.
- Pretend you’re already there. Visualise the end result, then express your gratitude for being on the receiving end of your desires.
- Trust the universe. Release your attachment to the desired outcome. Let it go. If it’s meant to happen, it will.
What’s very important is to not get off-track. Set to mute all sources that go against your desires, be it people who don’t have your interest at heart or channels on the TV. Attaching to anyone else’s opinion about what you want your reality to be, will only go against what you’re trying to do. Learn to discern what’s good for you, for everything else learn to ignore it. Treat it for what it is….noise.
So lets get on with it. Lets get creating. What’s your heart’s desire, peeps?
