(Got your attention with that subject line, didn’t I?)
If you were with me yesterday, you remember we talked about moving from what we don’t want, to what we do want. Not what we need, not what we should want, but what we do want. And our wants that bring us joy, passion and excitement in the anticipation.
We created a “brainstorming” list of 11 wants, and labeled each as just a passing thought, a sort of want, or a really really want. Then we took each want to the next step see what we really felt about them.
For example, we might really really want a new house. But as we do, do we dread having to clean it, or worry how we are going to pay the property taxes? The joyful want, or intention, of the new house will be washed out by the worry.
Or we might really be ready for a new relationship. BUT if we harbor anger and resentment against an ex, the negative will wash out the positive.
Remember it’s the feeling about what ever it is that makes the difference. When we look at it, we can heal it if we need to, and get about manifesting our greater good.
And by the way, do we really feel it is OK to want–to ask? Jesus said “ask and it shall be given you.” No limitation, no restriction.
P. S.: Join me for a “Playshop” (not a workshop) based on the Excuse Me, Your Life Is Waiting Playbook Wednesdays from noon to 1:30 p.m., starting November 3. We’ll look at the ground rules of deliberate creation, and how changing our feelings will allow us to get on with it!
