Wouldn’t it be wonderful if…

Wouldn’t it be nice if….?
Esther Hicks is a teacher who has broadly expanded my understanding of The Law of Attraction. Today I want to share with you her extraordinary approach to harnessing this powerful tool.
Often, we think we are fully focused on what we want. We even mouth the correct words to support our desires (we are clever lab rats, after all!). However, even though the words are correct, our attention, many times, is actually focused on, “Why isn’t it here yet? Where IS it?”
It is difficult to believe that we can attract what we want through the power of our focus when most of us have been taught from birth to be impatient and annoyed by what is NOT happening.
To soften this tendency, work on playing Esther’s new game called, “wouldn’t it be nice if…”.
Instead of diligently trying to prevent yourself from negative thinking about what you want, use your imagination to put you in a mode of expectation. Children do this naturally. You can teach yourself to do so, as well.
The “Wouldn’t it be nice if…” Game
Wouldn’t it be nice if…
Ø at the end of the day, the most important things are done and I can go home and enjoy my evening without worry.
Ø I discover that the information for the project I’m working on is easy to find.
Ø I apologize to my co-worker today and she tells me it’s already forgotten.
Ø my boss came to me and told me what a great job I’m doing.
Ø I got that raise I’ve been wanting and can begin to save for my new car
When I first considered this game, I thought it might be better to say, “Won’t it be nice when…” It seemed to me that saying “when” instead of “if” would be a more positive approach. What I now realize is how clever Esther is to use the word “if” because it acts as a bridge between our beliefs and our hopes.
If I said, “Won’t it be nice when I get that promotion I’ve been hoping for,” and I don’t really believe that it’s coming, then I get thrown into negativity. Perhaps I feel like I’m fooling myself. Saying instead, “Won’t it be nice if I get that promotion I want,” allows me to start fantasizing about what it would be like, what I would do, and how I would feel. There is no resistance and no resistance is a key element for more quickly attracting what you want.
This weekend I attended a lecture by renowned psychiatrist David Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., author of Power vs. Force, who described our thoughts as iron filings that will naturally attach themselves to the attractor field that they match. If your thoughts are focused on a game where you are imagining something that would be wonderful if it happened, then those thoughts will naturally flow toward the very attractor field that will ensure that it does!
So play this game often.
Wouldn’t it be nice if…
Ø I was completely aware today of how much I enjoy my work?
Ø traffic flowed smoothly and quickly on the way home tonight?
Ø my co-workers were all in a good mood around me this week?
Look, you’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain and…
wouldn’t it be nice if it really worked?
