The New Year is a great time to reflect and I found an execise that I can’t wait to try from one of my heroine’s, the amazing visionary, Dr Jean Houston. She described it on a podcast entitled Activators of Creativity. If you do this exercise be prepared to experience what Jean describes as "galloping synchronicities"
Here are the steps
Divide a piece of paper in three columns
1. At the top of the first column write, What do I want from
the universe? Allow yourself to write whatever comes.
2. At the top of the second column, What does the universe want
from me? Allow yourself to write whatever comes.
3. At the top of the third column, What do we want together? What do the universe
and I want? Allow yourself to write whatever comes.
Once you have completed the exercise, set it aside. Come back to it in a few
hours with this adaptation to the previous questions; the 1st column, deeper still, what do I want from the
universe?, the 2nd column, deeper still, what does the universe want from
me?, and the 3rd column, deeper still, what do we (myself and the universe) want
Now let questions and your responses gestate for a few
days. Come back to it when you are feeling in a particularly receptive or spiritual mindset.
Return to the three questions with this adaptation; deepest yet, what do I want from the
universe?, deepest yet, what does the universe want from me?, and deepest yet, what
do we want together?
The next step is to ask yourself; What talents are
available? What are the support and resources available? What needs to be
added? What is this looking like? What do we need to work together?
The final step is to go back to the universe and say – okay universe
– this is what we need. Write down everything that is needed.
This exercise sets a powerful and clear intention and allows your creative and ‘deep mind’ to begin working on it. Be prepared for what Jean describes as “galloping
I’d love to hear about your experience with this exercise and especially about the galloping synchronicities that come your way!
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU!
