Today we begin exploring the clarification of desires. While it is enough to know what you desire, if you dig into the reasons that you desire an object or a goal, it will advance your progress toward the goal.
For example, you say that you desire millions of dollars – though when you ask for millions of dollars, what you are asking for is millions of pieces of paper. Chances are, what you really desire, is an object, or event that you can obtain with those dollars.
Rather than focusing on “money”, we recommend making an itemized list of things you wish to purchase with this money.
Most people wish to win the lottery… not so that they can have things for themselves… (although that is certainly a worthy reason), but what we see is how much people wish to assist those around them. Most lottery winners buy lavish gifts for their family and friends. They help their children, parents, siblings and close friends pay off their mortgages, start businesses and buy them new cars… Etc.
Most people who obtain enormous amounts of money through business, give far more money away to assist in the healing of others than they even spend on themselves.
Doing this opens the flood gates of expansion and, through the pleasure they receive from giving, even more will flow to them.
Here is an exercise for you to try.
Take a few minutes and focus on the things you wish you had money to buy. Let’s say it’s a new car. At first glance, your reasons for wanting the car and you may seem to be self serving. We ask you to take a moment and find a way to look at the new car as more of a gift to another person. For example, look at the new car as a more reliable form of transportation that will benefit your spouse, children, boss, clients and even your pets, because it allows you to be more reliable for them.
When you focus on a new home, look beyond your initial thoughts about a bigger living space to how that space can benefit others. Such a space could be large enough to have gatherings and even do workshops right in your living room. Imagine a group of students gathered in the room, learning and enjoying themselves. What a gift to your students who have been waiting for you to give lessons, or just gather for camaraderie.
Perhaps the new motor home that you have been dreaming about would fill your grandchildren with delight because you could come visit more often… This is a subtle, but important distinction from the already glorious thought of getting to visit and hold your grandchildren. Seeing their delight will speed up the joy you feel and will assist you in creating the reality of having the motor home.
Most people are more motivated to do things for others than they are to do things for themselves.
Giving a small gift to a friend can do much more than allow you the good feeling of giving… It can assist in the healing of the heart of a person who is feeling down. Each time they pass your gift it will make them smile. This can be life altering to someone who is in a constant state of depression. It doesn’t even have to be an extravagant gift…it can be as simple as a handpicked bouquet of flowers.
If you can adopt the perspective that the goals you are aiming to receive are gifts for others it opens the way for the magic of synchronicities and miracles! Go look again at your goals and see who else will benefit from them!
“It is better to give than to receive.”
