One red tree in fall color

If you don’t like the reality you have, create a bigger, brighter, better one!

Begin with visualizing or imagining that you are in a still life painting of something important to you. Maybe it’s you and your partner, you and your house, you and your career. Let the picture paint itself with all the drama and color you have right now… or all the dab, dull, and missing pieces that you may feel are still there.

Now stand back and take a good, long look at your painting. Ask yourself:

  1. Is there something more I’d like to have in my life right now?
  2. Is there someone else I’d like to have in my life right now?
  3. Is there something I’d like to be doing and having fun with?
  4. Is there something I’d like to challenge myself with, or stretch myself and see how far I can go?
  5. Is there someone I always wanted to be like?
  6. Is there something I always wanted to do some day?

Imagine yourself as the master painter. See yourself put on a smock and pick up a brush. This is a magic brush that paints whatever you want. Simply point your brush at the painting and tell it what you want in your picture. You can add in anything or anyone you discovered from the questions above. And, you can ask your magic brush to erase anything or anyone from your painting that you don’t want there anymore.

When you are finished touching up your painting, stand back and look it over. How does it feel to know what you want? How does it feel to claim it for yourself? How does it feel to see what it might look like as part of your life?

Since “any reality only exists because someone has focused it into being,*” you can now create any reality you want by focusing your attention on the “new picture” of what you want in your life.

You may want to draw out this new picture or make a vision board of it with scenes and quotations. As you hold the focus on what you want, you will experience less and less of what you don’t want. As you welcome each new piece that shows up for your new picture, more and more of the unwanted pieces will fall away.

If you need some handy cues to keep you on course, consider the Ask and It is Given Cards by Esther and Jerry Hicks (The Teachings of Abraham). The quotation above* is from this terrific deck of inspiration cards. Check them out here:

I love them! They seem to give me exactly what I need the moment I pick one out. Let me know what you think. Do you have some quick pick-me-ups that keep you on course when the going gets tough?

I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
