The Process of Creating: Applying the Universal Laws of Attraction
by Jackie Foskett, CH
Ready to forget those New Year’s resolutions and create your life instead? Here’s how:
Write Down Your Goals
Write down your “goals” for this year. Whatever your goals are, be sure they hold a lot of positive charge for you. Feel them energize you when you think about them. Avoid the “shoulds” and the blasé objectives. You may want to categorize your goals into certain areas, i.e. family, health, career, finances. See my January 2007 newsletter for more ideas.
Imagine the Details
Now for the real magic. Sit quietly as you bring your attention to your breath. (For a refresher on self hypnosis techniques, refer to my May/June 2007 newsletter.) Use your imagination to envision achieving your goals and welcoming the life you love. Let’s say your goal is to lose 30 pounds. Imagine the details: you are healthier, lighter on your feet, eager to move your body and enjoying all your favorite activities.
Feel the Joy
Next, let yourself experience what this life feels like. Feel the joy of having what you desire.
It may be helpful to imagine yourself fulfilling each step toward your goal. For example, imagine releasing 1-2 pounds per week. Feel how good that will be at the end of a week. Then go to the end of the month in your imagination. Imagine how it feels to have released 4-8 pounds. Hang out with that feeling! Keep imagining week by week or month by month, coming full circle to your desired goal.
You can also play with imagining how every day you will be moving your body, perhaps even using a pedometer to keep you motivated. You might imagine how you choose healthy foods and appropriate portions.
This process fulfills the Universal Laws of Attraction and allows your desires to come forth. The good feelings you create act like magnets, attracting you to follow your creation. Use these positive, affirming feelings whenever you become discouraged or choose an action that makes you feel like you’re moving backwards.
By choosing to feel empowered, excited and enriched, you will continue to create your life moment to moment. And you didn’t even need those resolutions. You can apply this process to any area of your life. Have fun with it! Be in joy! Create the life you desire this year!
