Several years years ago I wrote in a journal describing my days the way I desired them to be. Of course life got in the way and that practice wavered then stopped. I had chosen this practice as a co-creative process expecting positive things to unfold in the daily simplicities. I believe by expecting good things to happen- they do. Essentially it’s a method of getting ahead of the game, ahead in the creative process. I’m off on an adventure to the UK this next week and decided to implement the same concept however abbreviating and redesigning the idea.
I believe by getting ahead of our expectations the universe listens. Daily I expect good things to come – the right events or people to pop up on my radar- as an example. It’s in the magic of allowing – believing, trusting, imagining – life unfolds beautifully.
Two weeks ago I wrote 21 words down-whatever randomly came into my mind. I decided to keep the process simple, easy; one word versus long soliloquies. I’ve put them on my daily calendar. I’m applying these words to my 21 day UK journey. My goal is to watch, be mindful, open to what comes my way in relation to the words -the word for the day- and catalogue the stories, events and people relating to the word. And I feel -know in my bones- there will be little to big things that will unfold. Essentially it’s asking the universe to show me experiences that are in harmony with the definition of the word. Asking in advance for what I’d like to participate in and/or observe.
You too can join me in on this experiment. You can utilize my words or create your own. See what unfolds, what happens magically in your life when you expect good things rather than waiting for the worst to befall you -and the world for that matter- essentially rewriting the old programmed negative behaviors and reactions. I mean, imagine. Seriously imagine if one word a day, could and can transform your life??!!
The reason I chose 21 is for several reasons. One is that’s the length of my travels. Two is we can rewrite old programs and habits in 21 days of mindful awareness. What old bad habit is it time to release, change, shift and let go? Be willing to do what is required to make that happen from listening to visualization programs that you download or record on your phone -as who doesn’t have their phone all the time? to starting an exercise program: make yourself accountable. And thirdly, 21=2+1=3. Three -3- is the number of kindness, imagination, creativity and joy. It represents inspiration, manifestation, growth and creativity, perfect for this fun mindful expectation practice.
Here is my list:
Imagine too if you applied this technique to your job or your relationship or your health? With mindful practice great things are truly possible. Of course you can make it as complicated as you desire, I’ve just learned simplicity reigns in my world. I hope you consider joining me on this happy project. Please share your experiences if you do.
Here’s to 21 days of inspiration, imagination and manifestation.
Cosmic sunshine to you.☀️
