What would it feel like if you received your greatest wish right now? Seriously think about the answer to that question in a real, non-wishful way. Would you be thankful? Joyful? Feel more free? Have more confidence? Spend a few minutes reflecting and actually feeling those feeling.
What you just did in this exercise is what many faith and Law of Attraction experts say is the key to manifesting your desires in the fastest way possible. They say if you can consistently play the part and act “as if”, it’s only a matter of time before your goal is realized.
If you prefer Biblical evidence, I present my favorite verse which is Mark 11:24… therefore I tell you whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have already received it and it will be yours. Other verses say that you can have anything you desire if you have faith. What is faith? Knowing what you want and believing in the unseen and unrealized.
How do we develop this faith and knowledge that our goal is already realized? Several books provide an example of acting as if you’ve ordered from a catelogue. When you place your order, you know your item will eventually arrive. You don’t keep orderding and checking to see if it worked. When you plant a seed, you don’t constantly check to see if it’s working and the plant is growing, do you?
An even more powerful tip to help develop the feeling of success is provided by Ben Sweetland in his book, “Make Money While You Sleep”. He says to imagine that someone handed you a check for a million dollars. How would you feel? You would feel rich, free, grateful, and whatever else comes to your mind. However, there’s a slight problem. Does a check for a million dollars clear immediately? Is the money available right away? I’ve never had a check for that amount, but my knowledge of banking tells me it would take several days to clear and to actually have the money. However, that wouldn’t stop you from feeling rich, would it? You would still feel those positive feelings knowing that it was just a matter of time before the money was actually in your possession.
Herein lies the key to receiving what you desire. Feel and act like you’ve already placed the order or deposited the check. Live in the anticipation that it’s only a matter of time before the wish is realized. Keep alert for actions to take or places to go to make it happen. However, never lose focus of the fact that if you believe you already have what you want and play the “as if” part, you can count the fulfilment of your desire as imminent.
I ask you again…what would it feel like if your wish was fulfilled right now? Focus on those feelings and be that person that is living his or her dream. It’s possible for every one of us. Enjoy the blessings 🙂
