This blog would fit under the category of “nuts and bolts” of reaching your heart-felt goal in life. In this method or technique, what you do is simply to define your dearest dream in as few words as possible. The less, the better.
Suppose you are an artist and have a dream to have your collection of paintings be put on display for the public to see. Instead of writing out your goal as “my dream is to have my paintings go on display where the public will be able to see them. Also, I would like to sell some of my paintings while they are on display.”
The idea is to use as FEW words as possible. There is a very good reason for this, it is so your subconscious mind can grasp the concept in as few words as possible.
For instance if your dream is to have your paintings be put on display for the public to see, you could shorten the statement to something like this, “my paintings will be displayed.” This is a direct statement to be filtered from your conscious mind to your subconscious mind. Also, there is a certain cadence that is created when you repeat this statement over and over.
If you take about half an hour a day, and repeat your goal over and over again, it will begin to solidify into your subconscious mind. The next step in this exercise is to place a penny on your desk or hold the penny in the palm of your hand. As you look at the penny, repeat over and over again your goal, in as few words as possible. It is best to set it up with the rhythm of a cadence.
If you do this exercise faithfully every day, you will be surprised at what happens during the day when you see a penny. Your subconscious mind will be triggered to focus on your goal, with absolutely no effort by you conscious mind.
It is best to hold any harsh judgment of how this is working for you for at least 30 days. During this 30 day period of doing this exercise it would be very helpful to keep a journal of how you are progressing toward the fulfillment of your goal.
An example of a journal entry might be as follows, “today I talked with the local town librarian about painting. I took out a book about watercolor painting and the librarian asked me if I did much painting. I told her that I had been painting for several years now. Out of the blue, she mentioned to me that from time to time the library displays paintings from local artists.”
When you are finished doing this exercise for 30 days, do not give up. In fact, remain faithful to continuing to do this simple exercise for 30 minutes a day. As you continue to keep your journal, you’ll be amazed at how many times a week, you will meet someone who is interested in your dream that is dear to your heart.
The biggest thing is not to give up or get discouraged. You’ve got to belief in your talents, be courageous in seeking ways to seeing your dream come true, and never get discouraged by rejection.
Peace and harmony, Richard
