Putting Your Thoughts To Work To Change Your Life
A couple of days ago, I saw a friend I hadn’t seen in a while. As we caught up with each other’s life changes the name of a mutual friend came up. Unbeknownst to me, this mutual friend had quit her job and moved in with her boyfriend who lived in another state. My comment was: wow. Not because I thought it was out of this world for someone to quit their job and move in with someone else, but because it seemed unexpected.
After I shared my thoughts with my friend, she said our mutual friend had a board. “A board?” I asked. “Yes, I board where she pinned her greatest desires.
It turns out our mutual friend had a white board and on it she pinned clear messages to the universe. Her messages were about being with this particular man.
Now, we have all heard about people pinning things all over their walls. So, why am I writing about this?
There is something really powerful about paying attention and giving energy to what we want.
I’m not talking about repeating like a parrot – without real meaning – I want to be happy, or rich, or successful. And I’m not talking about saying time and time again “I’m beautiful” or some other affirmation which most of the time we say without really believing. I’m talking about a specific want like: “I want X studio to buy my Y screenplay” and giving the thought the respect it needs.
By concentrating on a particular want, we are taking our lives seriously, and we are letting the universe know we really want a positive outcome. Our want becomes empowered by our energy. It is different attitude from wanting something and then just sitting back to see what happens.
There is amazing power in taking a stance. Know what matters to you and make it happen. Have a board. Say it out loud. Tell a friend. Tell yourself. And see it come true.
