Do you know that just about everyone has something they would like to create in their life? I think it's natural for us to want to bring something new into our experience. And if we aren't conscious of this, it seems the new will be brought in anyway in the form of a weird experience or happenstance, just to keep us moving forward.
Because we have some control over our goals, it's nice to think about what we want BEFORE the "universe" has a chance to randomly throw something in. This is actually really easy. It is a great way to gain clarity when we feel confused or depressed or troubled about something. Simply write down what you want.
Begin with a piece of paper or your computer and state at the top, "I now accept all this or better." Then, write down what you want. Don't write what you don't want. Just what you do want. Here are some examples to get you started.
A great new job that I love that has hours, people, and tasks I enjoy.
A wonderful relationship/partner with mutual love, respect, interests
A healthy body, vitality, energy, enthusiasm
Finish my memoirs and find a publisher
Train and run in the 5K
Steadily increase my savings account balance
Volunteer for a local organization I feel passionate about
Writing down your goals is very simple, so do not underestimate the power of it. I have put together these "manifestation" lists for almost 2 decades. Usually everything on these lists come into being.
