Imagine waking up on January 1, 2016 and opening a letter… which describes lots of fun and fabulous things you experienced in 2015.
This is one of my favorite dream-building exercises!
Here’s how it works: Grab a sheet of paper and pen. Date the letter January 1, 2016, and address it to whomever you wish: G-d, Loving Universe, yourself, Your Higher Self– whomever you please.
Pretend it is January 1, 2016. You are reflecting back on the year 2015 and giving thanks for many fun things you did or accomplished.
Let your imagination run wild. Joyfully describe your cooking vacation in Italy, running your first marathon, getting your book published, promoting in your company, paying off credit cards, donating time or money to your favorite charity, getting a weekly massage, paying for your niece’s private school tuition, volunteering at your grandchildren’s school, delivering speeches, attending spiritual retreats. Put dates on them if you want, and feel free not to. Some descriptions require high flexibility in order to manifest in the most efficient and powerful way possible.
Be as general or specific as you please. The more specific you get, the more emotional and powerful that scene becomes, aiding your brain in manifesting it.
And, be sure to include at least one pie-in-the-sky “Big Dream”… one that gets you excited but you’re not sure how to accomplish it.
Traditionally I finish my letter with a phrase, “I give thanks for these or something better, for the good of all and harm to none.” After all, if you described two easily-funded vacations, would it be OK with you to receive a 3rd?
Sign it, and reread it. Feel the fun and celebration coming from your words!
Now seal it in an envelope…to be opened January 1, 2016.
