Have you experienced this before? If so, have you thought about how you could use this awareness to get more out of your life? It’s possible if you create a painted picture of what you envision.
A painted picture is a 1 page (or less) description of what you desire your world to be at a future time, but written as if it was in the present. It is such a vivid description of what you envision that you can almost reach out and touch it. Reading it aloud puts you in a place where you feel as if you are already living it, and doing this again and again keeps the subconscious mind working to do the things that will make it a reality.
I was in NYC a few weeks ago and enjoyed an evening with my long time friends Chet and Niki. Niki is a former Wall Street type that is passionate about starting a preschool that opens childrens minds instead of keeping them in a box, like much of the institutional approach these days. I could easily see exactly what she was describing, as if it were right in front of me, not only from her vivid detail, but from her belief. With it so clear and alive in her mind, I bet she will make it a reality!
In your moment, be it star gazing, standing on a mountain, or caught in a song, let it open your mind to seeing more than you have before, or perhaps seeing things differently. Take a look at this unconventional football play that my son Tony showed me. It begs the question, is there a faster, easier, or more productive way then how we have always done it?
