For years I have studied the laws of attraction. But, for the last few months I have been working daily to clarify what I want in my life now, how I want to live, and what it would feel like. I spend time each day imagining it.
It turns out that it’s this simple:
CLARITY & IMAGINATION.
Clarity = knowing exactly what you want. Imagination = picturing yourself already having it. Don’t worry about the how, focus only on the having.
“But, how do I know exactly what I want?” Great question.
The short answer: I’ll bet you know exactly what you don’t want, and that’s a great place to start!
Since I was clear about what I didn’t want any more, I made a list of it. Using that, I made another list of what I would rather have instead.
Then I narrowed that down to a couple of “biggies” that were very specific.
I imagine what I want every morning and evening, and think about how I will feel when I have these in my life. (NOTE: it’s not about the thing per se – the car, the house, the corner office, the bags of cash. . . it’s about how we will feel.)
Imagine what you want, and how you will feel when you have it, for a few minutes each day – with your coffee in the morning, or before bed at night. When you say your prayers, or before you meditate. When you look out at nature’s beauty, or when you’re sitting still, stuck in traffic.
You can imagine feeling healthy and vibrant. Imagine a joyful, fun-filled, family life. Or extended family, or band of friends that act as family. Imagine feeling prosperous and secure. Imagine loving your job. How about the feeling you’ll have after accomplishing something you’ve worked hard for?
Imagine that, and see what begins to happen.
