It All Starts Now
Have you ever sat quietly, closed your eyes and visualized what it is that you really, really want? I talk to people all the time who say they have daydreamed about doing what they love. I have also spoken to people who say that they could see themselves doing it. But those daydreams and visions are typically interrupted by the “reality” of the day’s activities, which is then followed by “Oh well, it’s nice to dream.”
Do you understand that you are the creator of your existence? Do you understand that you have the power at your fingertips to bring about the dreams and desires you want? Although it may seem like a foreign concept to many, it is one of the quickest ways to bring about change.Like everything else worth while, it takes practice but once practiced it becomes easy with results flowing almost faster than one can fathom.
The secret to success is all about seeing and feeling what you want. Not just daydreaming about it,(although daydreams contain emotional aspects that alert the Universe to your desires) but seeing yourself there to the point of experiencing it.
So let’s start with the proposition that anything you can experience in any way start with a single thought. The thought grows into a bunch of thoughts and is then accompanied by a feeling or a wanting. It is the deepness or the power behind the wanting that gets those thoughts into motion, vibrating into every aspect of one’s being and it is that vibration that attracts the thing desired. Yes, there are steps in between the desire and the result but it is amazing how quickly this speeds up the process!
Let’s do a practical exercise and see what happens. (But only if you want to start seeing things show up in your life that you can really get passionate about.)
Start by trying to find a quiet place. (Once you get used to the process it won’t matter that there are things going on around you.)
What is it that you have a deep seated longing for? What is it that you could see yourself doing and being passionate about? Let yourself get lost in the feelings associated with actually doing whatever it is. What does it feel like this passion that you see yourself doing? Does it feel natural, does it bring you joy? Do you feel that excitement inside your innards like there was nothing on else you would rather be doing? I know. It feels wonderful. It feels like the Universe has embraced you in its arms. It feels like it is meant to be. It feels incredibly uniquely like the most incredible feeling ever!
Where are you in this vision? What is the scenery around you? Who is there with you? Are you interacting with others? Can you feel, touch, smell, hear and live in that passion you see?
Stay in that visual feeling place for a while. Focus on those wonderful feelings of accomplishment, of actually doing whatever it is that you have a longing for. When you are done with your visual, hang onto the feelings and go back there as often as you can.
but (as I said before) this is not the end of the exercise. Once you set your emotional intention, you need to be observant about your surroundings. Opportunities will start to flow to you and you will need to pay attention and recognize them and then make use of them.
Try this exercise a few times and see what happens. In fact, I challenge you to make the attempt and change your life for the better. And when you see how positive the results can be, email me and share your success.
If you have questions or need some further help in getting started, let me know that too. I am happy to help move you into the process.
Deliberate intention, Manifesting our Good, Setting our vibrational tone, etc.: All very descriptive words/concepts and also, potentially, very confusing.
It is really interesting how the search for a better, more fulfilling and successful life can get bogged down in the terms. What does it mean to “deliberately intend” something? What is “manifesting”? And how the heck does anyone set a vibrational tone?
“Deliberate” is something intentional. It is a desired outcome. Of course, it means taking action to create the circumstances that are intended to happen. “Intention” means that you want it to happen. So, I guess the easiest definition is taking some sort of action knowing that it is bringing out the desired result.
But what kind of action are we talking about? Initially it is all about knowing what we want. Have you figured that part out yet? Do you know what you want to do for the rest of your life (at least what you believe that to be at this very moment)? If you are happy/passionate about what it is that you are already doing then the purpose of Deliberate Intention is to get even more joy and fulfillment out of what you do. Finding a better way, expanding it, moving it into another direction that will bring about even more joy than you have experienced thus far.
If you haven’t figured out what “floats your boat” in life, you will need to do a few things to figure it out. Mostly, it will involve clearing your mind through a process called Meditation followed by another technique called Visualization and, finally, putting it down on paper so that you can explore it more concretely. (I go into this in great detail in my new book: “It’s All About Me” available at Barnes & Noble and on Amazon (There is also an e-version out) But I am also happy to share here because this is my passion: helping others awaken to the individually and wonderfully unique aspects of themselves and using the realizations that follow to move into a life of joy and fulfillment.
We are born into an age of wonder where everything sparks an excited look, a curious touch, a new smell or taste; and it is all experienced in the comfort of knowing that there is a love that supports us; which holds us warmly to its breast where the sweet beat of life resounds within, as and for us.
As we grow we continue our search for that new excitement, that new sail that will move our boat further on its path to happiness. Sometimes we are saddened as we steer ourselves out of the harbor that we have come to know and love, but our sadness quickly turns to an excited anticipation as the wind and current take us to our new unfoldment. And so we bask in the sunlight of life as it takes us from one destination, one experience to the next. We feel the warmth of that sunlight and it reminds us of our youth; when we were coddled and embraced in the loving arms of our nearest and dearest.
We glide smoothly across life’s waters in our ship of discovery and watch as clouds reflect through the ripples of water into the endless sky. We allow our gaze to move with these reflections up, into the blue, and watch these pillars of white let loose their seeds of possibilities back into the greater form from which they came. And when the seeds have gone, we watch these clouds of wonder float gently across our horizon, changing in shape and hue as if mirroring our deepest desires.
There is a richness to this life. It is inspired by our attention yet forgotten when that attention is taken away. Still it remains part of our expanding awareness of ourselves as well as the greater Awareness from which all things have come.
I am grateful in my experience, for it is full of wonder, full of mystery and excitement, ever unfolding, ever expanding, ever giving birth to the new. It is my unfoldment and it is given to me as it has always been give: with warmth, through caring and with love.
