We can make our own future by envisioning it. Think about what you want – your ideal – even if it seems outlandish or impossible. Really think about it – in the positive (not, “I don’t want…” but “I want this to happen”) – and then believe it! Picture your life as if you were there and your imaginary future was already happening. Write a journal entry dated in the future. Draw a picture of this future.
Our thoughts, our dreams – if we believe in them – will come true.
Tell the Universe (God, Spirit, Higher Self, Goddess) – and yourself – your dreams, your wishes, your goals, your needs. Be specific!
I invite you to use the comments (as Anonymous if needed) to send your request, your belief about yourself and your abilities, your vision of the future out into the Universe. Dream big. And then believe it will happen.
