Whether you believe in the Law of Attraction or not, it is proven that writing down goals helps you achieve them. There is a reason for this, and it’s not hokey motivational BS. When you push yourself to write down what you want, it makes you think about it. The reason most of us don’t have what we want, is that we haven’t even identified it yet! Like the law of gravity, it is certain that your thoughts produce waves that affect your surroundings. They are much like radio waves, you can’t see them but they totally exist.
Based on that idea our thoughts must be pretty important right? And then the things we write down would be even more important right? They are. We spend so much time living our lives, that we don’t stop to think about our lives! We simply react to what is, instead of deliberately creating something better. Hate your job? If you spend all your time thinking about that and not the job you want guess where you’ll be in 10 years…yup you got it.
Many of the world’s religions have tried to define this phenomena as faith, prayer, blessings….whatever you call it, it involves 3 steps (go ahead and roll your eyes)
- Ask – as in think about it, write it down and get very clear on it
- Believe – that God or the Universe or whatever you call it actually wants you to be happy and will support your ask
- Receive – that’s the easy part!
I’m very familiar with the idea of praying, but something didn’t feel concrete enough about that to me. I had to get more basic than that. After reading a ton about the Law of Attraction, I decided to try writing down the things I wanted, not just speaking them into the ether.
I started writing things down on sticky notes, and leaving them in the back of my wallet. “Universal To Do Lists” I called them. Vibrationally what I was doing, was getting clear on the things I want and then forgetting about it (which is the equivalent of telling a kid you will do something for them…they just assume you will). What surprised me is that…I started getting everything I wrote down! And I do mean everything! Even when the path to get those things seemed to make no sense!
If you’re skeptical, give it a try! Write down 1 thing you want in each of the following areas:
- Personal life
Get into the list writing down why you want these things and how it would make you feel to receive them. It may seem silly, but you get exactly what you ask for. The more specific you are, the clearer you get on what you want, and the more quickly it manifests!
When you’re done, put the list somewhere and forget about it. Watch the magic begin and the ball begin to roll in your direction! Comment below if this has worked for you!
