I know it’s easy to talk about what you don’t want, but have you gotten clear about what you do want?
Getting clear about what you want to happen in any part of your life is a big and necessary step in attracting the future events, situations and people that you desire. Because energy attracts like energy, focusing on what you want causes you to produce positive feelings (a higher vibrational energy) and that energy goes out and comes back atcha in one way or another.
*a note about focusing on what you want: while it’s a worthy endeavor to focus your attention on your desires, focusing on the actual WANTING part is actually you bringing attention to the LACK in your life. The universe is much like a search engine so be careful how you phrase your desires because saying and thinking that you WANT this or WANT that will tell the universe to bring you more of WANTING this or WANTING that. So, once you know what you want, start ATTRACTING it to your life by getting excited for this or that’s arrival or merely stating that you are in the process of attracting this or that. Feelings are more powerful than words too – conjure up how it will look and feel to have what you desire!
Now back to the universe’s fabulous ability to follow your orders – or in other words, the power of getting clear about what you want…
I experienced this like bloody clockwork recently.
I had a speaking engagement last month and two things went on that mama did not like – they were particularly unsavory as this was not the first time they had happened – this event was more like the proverbial piece of straw that broke the camel’s back. Okay, at the risk of sounding like a diva who demands room temperature evian and green M&M’s to be placed just so in her dressing room decorated to replicate her living room at home, let me tell you about my two event “pet peeves”: 1. When I arrived, no one acknowledged or noticed that I had arrived – it’s so much fun to feel like you’re crashing a party. 2. The A/V guy was stumped when my Apple laptop wasn’t connecting to the projection system and didn’t get my presentation up on the screen until about minute before I had to go on stage. Good times.
Change comes when things get intolerable. I think you know where I’m going with this one. After that event, I got really specific on what I want when I speak at an event. This is what I said to myself/the universe/anyone who cared…
I want someone from the organizing committee to greet me when I arrive at the venue.
I want A/V technicians who have taken the time to understand Apple products and can support me and my MacBook Pro.
I envisioned how it would feel to have those beautiful things be my experience at each event…ahhh, so good.
Cut to the very next event – about a week later.
My client (in Ottawa) picks me up at the airport and drives me to the event!! This was the first of it’s kind and completely dreamy. Upon arrival, the A/V team is extremely friendly, professional, and exuded confidence – they don’t flinch when I plunked down my Apple. Someone asks me if I would like a glass of water or coffee!!!! This moment is a total bonus, but again, treatment I rarely receive. FYI, I travel with my own stainless steel water bottle because there are many events I speak at that filling up at the washroom tap is needed. But I digress…
I spoke at another event yesterday and it was another experience that brought me what I want. It brought me what I think is an exchange of positive energy so we have some good vibrations to work with.
Once I finally got clear on what I want, it happened.
Is there an opportunity for you to get really clear on what you want in some part of your life? Is this a good time to create a list that describes all that you desire and how it will feel to have it? Try it out. Come back and post what happened.
You’ll be amazed at what happens when the universe receives clear instructions and has all that high energy to send back atcha in one way or another.
